World of Xeen Premium Game Soundtrack

World of Xeen Premium Soundtrack

Hey everybody! In my free time I’ve been working on re-mastering the soundtracks of Might and Magic IV and Might and Magic V, so that they are closer to the quality of MMVI +. The soundtrack is rather quite epic, and it’s a shame to listen to them in low quality samplers. So, I’m putting together a little premium soundtrack. Basically, its repainting the songs with the more modern day samplers, as well as making a few tweaks, adding a few instruments here and there, but mostly leaving the songs original integrity intact.
The soundtrack contains ten re-mastered songs from the Clouds of Xeen and 8 re-mastered songs from the Darkside of Xeen.

Awesome man!!! I remember hearing the main theme remix you made awhile back!

Hope MMT is doing well! I've seen several new screenshots on another forum. Keep up the good work; you're still one of the 5 active MM projects: Legend of Erthia, WoX2, MM8: EoD, MMT, and MMX! I suppose GE's ArcoMage Clone would be the 6th :D

Awesome work.

Btw, with better sound cards the soundtracks themselves are of very high quality. For example:

Alamar's theme (Darkside of Xeen intro)
Clouds of Xeen intro
Castleview
Make you strong places to dwell and practice the evil of your arts. Build great monuments to stand through the ages and remind your followers of the task with which you have been charged. Use these halls of iniquity to perpetrate your schemes against the infestation that has taken the fields and lakes of this land from you, their rightful masters. Never forget the hatred that must finally overcome and consume mankind. Dwell in your dungeons and brood. - Sheltem the Dark

@Tolich Thanks!

@MMX Haha, and the same to you. I wasnt aware of WoX2, so thanks for that one! Keep MM alive!

@XEL Thank you very much :) And some of those samples are pretty nice.

Haha, I just got beat to this. I just finished recording all the music from Might and Magic III, IV, and V from a Roland MT-32 and converted them into MP3s. I was wondering if there's a good place I can upload this? I don't have the storage space and bandwidth to readily host them myself.

The market is a bit shaky these days, because the MPAA/RIAA/MAFIAA should go die.

As for a place to host, MediaFire "ought" to stay up.

Yea, I generally don't see much difference between this soundtrack and the original MIDI files with good quality soundfonts. Although nice job, regardless.

Thinking of which, I really should upload more of those tracks :)

Yes, in a broad sense, its relatively the same idea. Only minor changes. But thanks! :)

I can't wait to hear about Darkside of Xeen. This is actually more nostalgic for me, since I played that game as a kids, and didn't have MM4. And I actually like the MM5 Soundtrack better.

I just don't think he is finished with this, because all of Darkside is missing, and that was the best music, IMO

Great idea :) I'm big fan of the XEEN music. Unfortunately the link doesn't seem to work for me ^^' (I get the "file unavailable" page)

edit: I missed the date of the OP. I guess the link's been dead for quite some time. Anyone has it and can re-upload it?

I've added 8 Darkside Soundtracks to the World of Xeen Premium soundtrack, and the OP has been updated with the new link and information. At the moment, that officially concludes work on this project, however if there is any desire to add a specific track to the soundtrack, I'll look at it.

@Alamar, Im thinking I probably will at some point ;)

Cheers,
