<EagleGuard> Tyrian Remix

Author Comments

Hey folks,

I thought It'd been a long time since I last submitted new audio content. So here it is: A remix of the music from the first level of the game Tyrian. The original song is called 'The Level'.

The music was originally composed by Alexander Brandon.

For those of you who want to hear the song I used for inspiration:

Hope you guys like it! Please rate and review :)

(And of course, this was made from scratch, so the key isn't exactly the same as in the orginal)

For some weird reason, the normalising didn't work... So this one's a bit amplified :)

Edit 2:
I changed a whole bunch of stuff, to make it sound more harmonic. Hope this version's better.

It's awesome

Been playing Tyrian since I was like 4, and this is a really great interpretation of the first level's music. Like Personplacething said, it really deserves to be in a remake or something. But, I also agree with GasparleGecko, the guitar sounds too MIDIey. Great job though, keep it up :)

EagleGuard responds:

Thank you =) Keep in mind, this song is pretty old and was made with Reason 4, which is not the best program for realistic guitars. I now use Sonar 8 and have a couple of realistic guitar VSTi's, so future songs should sound more realistic.

Thanks for the review!


You have just modernized ancient video game music.

Should they ever make another version of Tyrian, this song HAS to be in it!

EagleGuard responds:

Thank ye =)

Excellent melody and use of stereo surround

Very airy sounding.

That electric guitar instrument, though. When it changes quickly, it sounds so MIDI, like it's stuttering. If there's anything like a sample offset effect in your software(play sample from point X instead of from beginning) you could make it sound a whole lot smoother.

EagleGuard responds:

Hmm... I guess I could change something to make it sound smoother. I'll think about it. Thanks for the review :)

Nice!! ^^

Nice remix man ;D

I really like it!



EagleGuard responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it!


I liked it, and voted five. But there is one thing, when you listen it kinda makes a noise besides the music, I mean it feels like you listen two things at the same time. But it's still perfect!

EagleGuard responds:

Hmm... that could be the harmony (multiple instruments playing different melodies).

I think I get what you mean though, though I'm not sure how I should fix it xD

Thanks for the review!

I fixed a few things; hope it sounds better now
