Modules with interesting subsongs?
« on: December 05, 2019, 23:18:47 »

Inspired by the various subsongs in modules such as Synth Scape and Mirage by Pulse, Cannon Angel by Skaven, and the hilariously out of place sample of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in Penguin Escapes by Melcom. What are some modules that have especially interesting subsongs, i.e. alternate versions of themes, etc?

Almagest by Cyclone has some interesting subsongs (mostly the first one).

Not sure if it really matches what you are looking for, but the in-game soundtracks of Death Rally (track1.s3m through track9.s3m on TMA) contain a "main theme" and pause music, which is typically a slowed down variation of the main theme.
I guess in the broadest sense the classic Beyond the Network (Bejeweled soundtrack) also applies since it contains several subsongs which are more or less stand-alone tracks.

Solo mods are my primary interest here, though I'm interested in game soundtracks as well if the subsongs are unused.

Huh, i was thinking of Death Rally too! I even checked this topic yesterday, but i think i must've read over it. I've played the game again recently after listening to the soundtrack a lot, but i don't think the pause music is actually used in-game, right? I haven't heard it myself yet.

The menu music (menutune.s3m) also includes a loooooot of subsongs.

The intro music/boss battle music seemingly doesn't show up in the track1-track9 modules, but you can download that as purple_motion_-_death_rally_-_hard_metal.s3m. It's probably my favourite song in the game's soundtrack. :D It too contains some pause music, like the other track songs.

CHIPPERS (wvl-abled-dino-fzmx_CHIPPERS.it) also contains a couple of hidden subsongs. We had a few extra patterns left, so we used those to create some extra songs. There was no space for them in the sequence though, and they're easter eggs after all. :P So you'll have to manually add in the bonus song patterns to the sequence, if you want to give them a listen. You can find the songs by scrolling through the pattern list. :)

Oh, it absolutely is, it's just easy to miss. :) The ESC menu doesn't use this music, but you can hear it when pausing by pressing P!

Huh... makes me wonder why there are two separate pause menus then. I mean, one is technically just a menu to exit out of a race, but i was using that to pause the game as opposed to pressing P.
