Vapor Trail XL (Panzer Dragoon 2 soundtrack remake)

Here is my (new) remake of an awesome soundtrack piece from an old Sega Saturn game, Panzer Dragoon II. It's the epic level 2 boss theme, and in my opinion some of the best music ever in a video game.

This has been a long term WIP, but this I think is my final version.

And here is the original from the game!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORQGt4Pvnkk

Keep in mind this was done from memory years after the last time I'd heard it, so it's not an exact copy.

Working on this makes me want

Working on this makes me want to play Panzer Dragoon II again... Unfortunately my Sega Saturn is looong gone. I hope someone remakes the Panzer Dragoon series, they are some of the greatest & most unique games ever made. Poor Sega never got the credit they deserved.

Excellent track! I really

Excellent track! I really liked what you have done here. There are many video games from the past that has great songs. I also like Commando and Exploding Fist from the C64. Bomb Jack also has a great theme but on C64 that one was of course composed by JMJ (Magnetic Fields Part II)

'Working on this makes me

Great work again Mr. Bones!

'Working on this makes me want to play Panzer Dragoon II again.'

I am pretty sure you can find an emulator to play it.
On android I use MAME4Droid to play old arcade games, and Xpectroid to play C64 games.
A quick search came up with 2 saturn emulators named Satourne & Cassini for windows and Yabause for mac.
Probably there is a way to play it on your Android too.

MAME, emulators

Hahaa! I also play games on MAME. The old school arcade games, especially NeoGeo are my favorite. I have tried Saturn emulators in the past but none have worked properly. That was a while ago so I might check out the newer ones. I'm also looking for a proper Dreamcast emulator.

I have a great NeoGeo emulator on my Droid X2 called Neo.Emu- works perfectly. Gotta love the Metal Slug series.

Thanks for the comments you

Thanks for the comments you guys! I'm thinking about doing some music from the "Soul Calibur" (Dreamcast) or "Last Blade" (NeoGeo) soundtracks... Something from "Resident Evil 2" or "Resident Evil: Code Veronica" is another possibility. Anyone have other suggestions for cool (old school) game music to cover?

either "Soul Calibur" "Last

either "Soul Calibur" "Last Blade" would be cool. Last night I went to a school concert and a guy played the final theme from halo as a solo 'classical' piano piece. I had thought of doing the the theme from unreal tournament at one time.

"I have a great NeoGeo emulator on my Droid X2 called Neo.Emu- works perfectly. Gotta love the Metal Slug series."

OK,, have to look into Neo.Emu. With MAME 4Droid I got Metal Slug 2 running REALLY well. But it is hit or miss with emulators sometimes. I can't get 1 of my favs to load; Discs Of Tron, even though it is supported.
I also am into the really old vector games like Star Trek and Battle Zone which run really great on my rooted Nook Color.
