  A:Jas Brooks Player   (Jason C. Brooks)

  A few years ago i discovered a wonderful tune in a game named:
  Space-Harrier. At that time there was however no possibility of playing
  it, until I found a player in exoticripper. This player unfortunately
  had some bugs.
  Brooks had already made a good reputation on the C=64. In 1987 he also
  started to work on Amiga. Unfortunately he only worked on it for one
  year, until 1988. I have not found any tunes newer than that from Jas

  I have found the following soundtracks.

  AMIGA:                       C=64:
  Space Harrier   05           Bismarck                01
  Vixen           02           Inspector Gadget        03
  ?                            Outrun                  02
                               Overlords Of The World  01

  B: The Ultimate Soundtracker

  One of the pioneers in the area of tracker was Karsten Obarski. In
  December 1987 he made the first tracker for Amiga. This a bit "cheaply"
  designed soundeditor would become the standard. In 1987 came
  "THE-Ultimate Soundtracker", which was not so ultimate. This
  circumstance made that in a very short time over 20 new soundtrackers
  were produced, it was not until 1989/90 that Noisetracker saw the light
  of the world. This time made by Mahoney & Kaktus. The disadvantages was
  only that of the design and not in the way it was controlled. The first
  editor for which the sounddata was called "MODULE" was Soundtracker 2.3
  by UNKNOWN/DOC. It was made in 1989 shortly before RSI Megademo was
  released. It was built around Noisetracker, but it had so many changes
  so it was given a new name. From 1989 until 1990 all were called "Noise"
  and so many modifications saw the daylight, until december 1990 when
  Protracker blew out the light for Noisetracker. New design, improved
  editing. Almost everything was improved. The only thing that Lars Hamre
  didn't take from Noistracker was the MIDI support. Protracker was
  improved by Amiga Freelancers from 1991 until 1992, until Mushroom
  Studios released a better OS2 compatible version. After april 1992
  nothing was changed in this version (2.3A). In 1993 a completely new
  Protracker was released under the Cryptoburners label. A completely
  working version of this was never released, and the early version 3.15
  had as many bugs as Kickstart 1.0 from 1985. All following trackers, no
  matter if they were made for Archimedes or PC, used the same principles.
  Although Archimedes had 8 voices and the PC up to 64. 
  Who knows when another "Karsten Obarski" tool comes out.

  2.Sound Artist's

  Audiomonster, and you don't need a PC and 32 voices, or anything like
  that. All MODULES are composed with AMIGA 1000 !!!

  I first discovered Audiomonster in a demo from DELIGHT. He composed the 
  tune "HARD FEELINGS" in January 1991 for this group, for the unique
  plasmademo "OVERDOSE". The soundtrack captivates through a really unique 
  composition of notes and samples.
  Audiomonsters real name is Raphael Gesqua, this pretty strange name to
  read is french. Who wants, can look up his real address in the
  soundtrack FLORENCE, and order his CD.
  The first tune i have found from him is HalloManiacsofNoise 1 and 2.
  They must have been created in 1990. He released the tune "70s
  Reprise" In the same year, but then under the ANARCHY label. Later he
  made a few productions for THE SILENTS France and DK. Two wonderful
  tunes were made for Thomas Lantspurg, who also made SuperDark, for his
  really unique DEMO VirtualWorld. Everything takes place in an underwater
  world. For this demo Raphael made the tunes "Apocalypse" and "Hysteria".
  Audiomonster confronted the Amiga Modulescene on TRSI Eastern
  Conference in ARENDAL 1992 with "FLORENCE". One of his most unique
  In 1991 he also made a few soundtracks for a french softwarehouse.
  But they are not so ingenious as those released "voluntarily". The game
  is called FLASHBACK and was made by DELPHINE SOFTWARE. 
  After two years with THE SILENTS he left for MELON DEZIGN, where he
  stayed until he had a "fight" with WALT in 1994. Since july 1994 he is
  Unfortunately I have found no new productions from him after that.

  All tunes i have collected so far
  70's Reprise     ingenious            Intro Priority     untraceable
  Apocalypse       ingenious            Land Of Barbarians untraceable
  Alcoholic Score  Unbekannt            Lover Breath       untraceable
  Crayon           MELON DEZIGN 94      Melonmania         MELON DEZIGN 92
  Chaos in France  untraceable          Melon Glo Mania    untraceable
  Canal Green      MELON DEZIGN 93      Nebulos            crazy
  Daily Pleasure   strange              Sonic              incredible
  Florence         Timelessly sweet     Streed Gang        MELON DEZIGN 93
  Hard Feelings    I think its great    The War            THE PARTY II 92
  Hello M.O.N      so-so                The Last Call      untraceable
  Hello M.O.N 2    so-so                The Song Fake II   France 1994
  Hysteria         as good as it gets   Without Her        untraceable

  Further all soundtracks from FLASHBACK (23 tunes).

  In the next issue i will present Bjorn A. Lynne.
  The musiclist alone makes it to a special extra issue.
  So far there are over 250 tunes made by him !!!  


  B: Jochen Hippel
  I have already told you about him in another issue, but i have not
  showed you all of his tunes, and now:
  All soundtracks i have found by Jochen Hippel.

  "Enchanted Land" Wonderful melodies. There exists 4 songfiles which have

  "Amber Star"     Great. There exists 19 soundfiles with one sample for

  "Ghost Battle"   Wonderful and ingenious. Four great tracks with a few

  "Lethal Xcess"   Again wonderful melodies. Eight soundtracks.

  "Ninja"          Wonderful Chinese :-) Six Soundfiles.

  "Prehistorical"  Excellent. All with 4 voices. Six Soundfiles.

  "Rings of Medusa"     Great. One soundtrack.
  "Rings of Medusa II"  As good as the previous. The melody makes you
                        want to scream. Incredible.

  "Leavin Teramis"      Wonderfully made. There are 7 Soundfiles.
  "Chambers of Shaolin" I don't know how many soundfiles that exists, but
                        I have 9 tunes.

  "7 Gates of Jambala"  Funny Soundtracks. 5 tunes.

  "Warp"                Three strangely made soundfiles. But a good melody

  "Wings of Death"      Sadly made. 11 soundfiles. every one with its own

  "Ghosts and Goblins"  I only have the titletune. There are also ingame
                        soundtracks !

  "Leteral"             Again excellent. A few pretty rockish tunes. This
                        time there are 5 tunes.

  "Cybernoid II"        The melody is incredibly good. THE NUMBER ONE

  All single soundfiles have a few subsongs, therefor I don't know the
  total number of songs.

  All these music titles came from the games with the same names.

  I also have about 20 other tunes, which I don't know the name of !
  Something more must be said about this. ALL Hippel productions have
  really ingenious melodies and really thought out synthetic instruments.
  I don't know anyone that can make the same kind of tunes with FOUR

  neither German or English is my native language it is quite possible
  that there are some mis-spelled words or some grammatical errors and I
  apologize for those. However as a whole I think you understand what I
  have written, if not I must take some courses in English :-)
