► We celebrate the 1st year of melcom-music.de

The sound of melcom - Classics

We celebrate the 1st year of ...
... www.melcom-music.de

I present: The sound of melcom - Classics

This album contains a small collection of tracks from my demoscene time. All tracks have been "slightly" revised. I made sure (hopefully) that they didn't lose their old charm when I edited the MOD files. In addition, the tracks were not simply edited. No, I use the original trackers of that time to edit the MOD files. For the AudioFiles (wav / mp3) I used different VST plugins & mastering tools.

What have I actually changed / what is new?

I did my job quite well (I think). But then there are also special things, I had to use tricks to make the sample or the instrument sound better. Many samples are well over 20 years old or even older. I was also VERY inexperienced at that time. Besides, as a teenager I never had a good sound system. By the way; OpenMPT was a very big help for me in editing the samples! It is really a masterful tool.

  • In every single MOD file I tried to improve the samples. For example to remove a crackle.
  • Various loops within different samples have been improved.
  • In some tracks new passages (patterns / channels) have been added.
  • Many patterns / channels were revised. In really every track, something has been added or changed. You may not hear this sometimes, but I assure you, these places are there :)
  • And if too much of the song changed, it became a special edition or extended version.
  • NO sample has been replaced with a sample from today!

Why did I do that?
First; We celebrate the 1st year of melcom-music.de, and I would like to give you a gift. I want to make you happy. Yes, exactly, YOU! Who likes to come here often and always looks to see if there is something new from me. Times change. I have changed. I have (maybe) changed my music style etc. And still YOU come along and be faithful to me! That really means a lot to me. πŸ’™

I also like to listen to an old classic of mine. Often I am disturbed by what I did back then. My inexperience, my old sound system. Unfortunately I could not do it better.

And third;
It is Christmas πŸŽ„⛄

Many of my tracks are so badly done that I often do not have the time to rework them completely. But I did my best in the time I had. After all, I have a Real Life as well and I also have quite different interests and obligations. I would have liked to rework many more tracks. Maybe that will come one day.

PS: I would like to thank my friend SagaMusix.de. Every day he was there for me. I think he probably got one or two grey hairs ;) You are a true friend and man of honor. Thanks a lot!

Enough talk, I hope you enjoy listening to revised works. I also wish you and your family a Merry Christmas - despite this pandemic that has hit us all. Stay healthy, everybody! 😷

And as always; sorry for my bad English.
