Right now I am working on MIDIs for every level, and the ones that are finished are listed below with names that I have given to them. Each MIDI is also on its corresponding level page. I don't plan to make any MODs, S3Ms, ITs, or XMs, but if you have one feel free to send it to me so I can post it here. The same goes for any MIDIs you might have. Enjoy, but note (pun intended) that I am not a trained musician so these MIDIs could be better! I have also added a few MIDIs that were not made by me so check those out too!
|Song Name||Sequenced By||Comments|
|Bionic March Mix! (Area 1) (NEW)||Chris St.Germain||The Area 1 music is one of the more popular tunes to remix. It's so memorable and fits the game well! Anyway, this mix is awesome and has a great electronic groove. Check it out!|
|Anguish...||Juan Rosario||This is an excellent new arrangment of the Anguish tune which I often call "Mary, Mary!". Give it a listen!|
|Area 1 Arrangement!||Teemu Rantanen||This MP3 is a great arrangement of the Bionic March theme from Area 1. This guy has his own band so if you're interested in more of his music then click on his name!|
|Area 1 Remix!||Jamus McDohl||This MP3 is a remixed version of the Bionic March theme from Area 1. It sounds really cool so download it now!|
|Level 8 Music!||Patrick Dubuque||I was going to make my own MIDI of the Level 8 song, but I found this one before I had the chance. It sounds great so I probably won't make my own version. This tune is one of the most interesting in the game!|
|Overhead Battle||Ryu Hokoru||This is the music that plays in the overhead action sequences that occur when you encounter a convoy. This song is short, but so is the overhead level!|
|Slime Molds! (enhanced)||Dman||Thanks goes to Venom for suggesting the improvements on this MIDI. It sounds awesome on a wavetable soundcard or a computer with Wingroove.|
|Intro Song||Bendshadler||This is the song that is played during the NES version introduction. It's not my favorite tune, but it does set the mood nicely.|
|Bionic March||Dman||This is my own crappy version of the song that you hear the most in Bionic Commando for the NES. It is also heard in Stage 2 of the Arcade version! I made this before I heard Rabiteman's arrangement of this tune, and his really shows what an amateur I am. Still, this one is fairly faithful to the original so it's worth a listen.|
|Bionic March||Rabiteman||What can I say about this one except that it sounds incredible! It switches instruments several times in order to provide a more diverse range of timbres. I definitely recommend a Wavetable sound card or Wingroove with this one.|
|Neutral Zone||Dman||This is the song that is played in the Neutral Zones. I enhanced it a little, but for the most part it sounds almost identical to the NES version. Give it a listen!|
|Slime Molds! (old version)||Dman||I sequenced this one before I got Wingroove so I was tuning it on a FM Synthesis sound card! Surprisingly it sounds OK with Wavetable voices, but I think the enhanced version is better.|
|Mary, Mary! (version1)||Dman||This one is a somewhat foreboding tune. I really like it, but for some reason this song seems to be played on the most difficult levels of BC for the NES. Hmmm....|
|Mary, Mary! (version2)||Dman||This has the same notes as version one of Mary, but the instrument patches have been changed to give it a more modern sound.|
|Chopper Hoppin'||Dman||This is the song that plays on the map screen of the NES version of Bionic Commando. It doesn't sound too great, but at least it is recognizable...|
|Arcade: Level 1||Origin Unknown||I have no idea who sequenced this one, but I figured it deserved a place here at the Bionic Commando HQ! I find this one mildly irritating.|
|Arcade: Level 1 (enhanced)||Enhanced by Metool||This is the same tune as the above MIDI, but the instruments have been modified to provide a different sound. The original sequencer is unknown...|
The Slime Molds music is so named because it is first heard in a stage where you meet the slime molds. Slime molds? That is what my old friend Kerry and I used to call the moving piles of goo that carry you around. Comprende?
The song Mary, Mary! is a somewhat ominous and sad sounding song. People who know me personally will attest to the fact that I sing along with game music and sometimes improvise lyrics that spring out of the dark recesses of my so called brain. For some reason I sing the words mary, mary in several places in this song. Don't ask why because I don't know the answer myself...
Chopper Hoppin' is a name that I just thought up this very moment! This is the tune that is played on the map screen. My MIDI of this song really sucks, but I put it on here anyway. I had a really hard time sequencing this one because the notes are played too fast for me to hear them long enough to cement them in my brain. Since I must sequence these MIDIs by ear, this is a problem. Too bad I can't slow it down...
