artist This is a high quality remake of the intro music from Pinball Fantasies, steelchambers2. I used the original pattern data, extended it to use more channels (for easier editing) and recorded high quality samples from the original sound sources used for this tune (my own Roland U-220 for melodic samples and the great kb6 collection for Roland R-8 drum sounds). Original tune by Olof Gustafsson (Blaizer / TBL). - Saga Musix

 |  Saga Musix presents: Steelchambers2 HQ Remake(4:39)               |

Original tune by Olof Gustafsson for Pinball Fanatsies.
Roland U-220 HQ remake by Saga Musix.

I've always loved this tune. I loved it when I was a kid and didn't even
know what module music was all about, and I still love it. It's my
favourite ProTracker MOD and I've heard so many remixes of it, and all of
them were bad. But why's that? Simply because the original tune is already
perfect as it is. There's not much you can do about it. The only thing I
wanted was to have a version with higher quality samples. While browsing
the Roland U-220 preset list in SynthMania, it struck me that many of
those sounds were really familiar... I knew the from Steelchambers2!
So I decided to get a cheap U-220, sample the hell out of it and make a
HQ remake of this tune. And now you can hear the result of this work.
All samples that were originally from the Roland U-220 have been replaced
by new, high quality stereo recordings from said synth. The only exception
is sample 19, which totally lacks treble on the synth and even EQing didn't
make it sound nice. Plus, I always found its crunchy sound that can be
heard when disabling interpolation to be essential to the overall timbre,
so that was another reason to just resample it to 44KHz without applying
any kind of interpolation. The same has been done with the orchestra hit
thingy that I couldn't identify as well.
The Roland R8 drums are taken from the kb6 sample library and have been
edited a bit to be closer to the original tune.
