07.10.00 - Music of a Dragoon

Today's update is a stellar one in this humble, audiophile's eyes. There's a bevy of assorted music to choose from, including incredibly early released MIDI and IT versions of some FF IX songs...We've got some busy beaver's making some music evidently. But today's update is more than that, on two prongs. First an exclusive Interview with Dennis Martin with regards to his Legend of Dragoon soundtrack, and second our Japanese correspondent translates a Famtisu interview with Uematsu with regards to the FF IX album.

A note on file submissions:
To expedite the process, I'd like to ask everyone who submits files for this section to please send all files with filenames that are in lower case format such as "xyz.mid." Secondly, with all email submissions PLEASE, sign the letter off with your name/handle and email address for the crediting process.

Author Descriptions:
I use a Roland XP-50 with DnB and Techno expansion boards, Acid, and Soundforge...that's it. If I want some 303 sounds I just sample Rebirth. My remixes usually tend to be on the darker side and most often have a heavy Drum n Bass/ Jungle feel.

Featured Review:


Due to the large amounts of applicants on the last day/last update, I couldn't personally thank each one who submitted music for my consideration. All those who have entered under the RPGamer team have been notified, but I just wanted to say thanks to everyone.
