I noticed at the end of you post, you suggest to search for your winter set rather than "Modern Motion" at the fruit store.

Plenty of Bjorn Lynne, maybe time to switch music back on in the game?

Hello, tycoons!
Remake of "Home Town" soundtrack melody from OpenTTD, written by Kit "Monochrome" F. Like it so much, that i want to redone it, in more modern way: non-general midi approach.
You can listen to it here:

Hope, you like it.

Also, in distant future i'd like to redone Chill Cafe and Let's Go.
If you don't mind of course:)

I can't give permission for those, you'll have to seek them from the original composers.

have you asked that "monochrome" guy, if you can do remixes and distribute it under a specific licence ? if so, you can include it in a Music Set and release it (or more tracks...if you want a real set.)

Apologies for necro'ing a thread with my first post. There is a reason for it - I promise!

I contributed four of the tracks in this pack, although life got in the way and I dropped off the internet for... well, a while. I wasn't sure if they'd actually been used or not - things were still up in the air the last time I was about. Anyway...


First up, spacedrone808, if you find your way back here, you're absolutely welcome to redo any of my tracks. I always made my tracks available, free of charge for any non-commercial use, with derivative rights included. Unfortunately, the site these were all hosted on (Laura's Midi Heaven) is now defunct, but I'll reattach some of the files I contributed here to make things easier for folks.

Green Hill. This is actually an updated build - the file used in the pack has a playback bug in Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10. They've reduced the polyphony limit on the default synth, and that causes the lead instrument to cut out randomly. This version simplifies some of the background sound-field to avoid triggering that bug, at the cost of some fidelity on XP.

Home Town. Version used in the pack.

City Of Energy. Version used in the pack.

Now, off to the wiki to see what the format for a music pack is. :)

edit : attachments borked when done inline. Whoops!

Welcome back to the digital side of life! When I get a chance I'll make an update with the improved version of Green Hill. Thank you for your contributions. "Modern Motion" is the music set I pretty much exclusively use myself. :)

Thanks for this compilation, it sounds great. Uploaded the whole set on youtube so I can listen to it in any device without depending on MIDI devices acting up or not :lol: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HI7AGPdL_OM
"Laura's Heaven" is offline, do you happen to know other sites to find cool MIDIs like these? The problem is MIDI playback is a pain to setup on modern browsers, the only way I know is downloading them and playing them manually afterwards. Never imagined I would see the day MIDI playback would become so hard to get going, it was such a basic default thing back in the days, any computer would play it out of the box. :lol:

Unfortunately there are not many sites like that left these days. Many of the people who were in the MIDI scene have become inactive or passed away, their sites untended. Many of those sites were set up on free web hosting platforms that have gone under, and even in the cases of those who had a dedicated domain name, the sites were not maintained by their families or friends (if they had any) after their deaths. Their hobbies, passions and works have simply vanished.

Those who are still in the scene have also mostly switched from posting raw MIDI files to posting MP3/MP4/MPA/FLAC/OGG audio files, because it allows them to record their music with the sound fonts of their choosing and the music sounds exactly as they imagined it and do not have to rely on the end-user to have the same set-up.

Play back in the web browser is a little problematic. I'm on Windows. I use the XMPlay audio play with the MIDI playback extension and some sound fonts installed. The program has a feature that automatically starts playing a URL for a music file if you copy the link into your clipboard. Makes for fairly effortless playback for a single song if I want to listen to it.
