Manbow 2 songs added to downloads

Topic: Music

Tomorrow, on October the 6th, the game Manbow 2 will be released on the MSX Fair in Bussum. Lead coder and composer norakomi has offered his Manbow 2 music for our ever growing download database! The original music has been made for SCC and PSG, openMSX was used to record all the seperate channels, enabling norakomi to mix and pan his individual tracks, and cheer them up a bit with DSP effects. In addition to that, the occasional drum sample was added here and there to spice up the result. The resulting mp3's sound a bit fuller than the original versions from the game, naturally.

The titles that have been added:

If you have an interesting free download you'd wish to offer for our downloads section, to share with the rest of the MSX world, send it to, and we'll consider your submission.

Until then, happy listening!

Great stuff! I'm listening right now.

These titles are as they are in the package we received links for from norakomi. One of the 9's could as well be a typo, who knows.., but for the moment I assume these titles are correct. If not, norakomi will no doubt let us know, and renaming one of the titles is no biggie.

I'd like to thank the openmsx team for making this possible.
the utility to capture all individual channels rocks.

About the list. There is no mistake.
The second level is the first encounter with manbow.
The eight level is the second encounter with manbow and has the same music.
song level 8 = song level 2

Great!!! Please, according the author what's the correct order to hear the songs?? The list is in alphabetical order so where we place game over, end boss tune or recovery for instance...

Nice job!! Hope we can buy it on Barcelona's RU on December Big smileBig smileBig smile

Curious as I am, I took another look at this (rather old) video on youtube and noticed this then called level 7, has the music of the current level 6 (living planet). It made me wonder if there is a level removed or switched with another level?!

I've been listing to several of these musics many times: beautiful compositions and ambitious work! I am no player, rather the guy who is playing just to enjoy music, graphics and programming tricks, enventually sometimes ending up with liking the games for themselves. Now I would love to get your cartridge! The use you make of the so special SCC sound capabilities is simply excellent. Félicitations! Wink

@sapphiRe:the order of the songs.... intro,l1,l2,recovery,l3,l4,l5,l5,l6,l7,l9inside,l9underw,l9finalbatt,endingtheme
@patsie:ah, yes, that video on youtube shows level 7 with the music of level 6.
I decided that that songs suits level 6 better.
