    Here is a look at the music Tim Follin composed for the ZX Spectrum beeper. Most of these games have only one or two tracks so I ended up doing all of them. I tried to stay as close as possible to the original sound (based on Youtube recordings from real hardware), although the listening experience could arguably be "improved" by boosting the bass a little bit.

    The following covers the period from 1985-88 and the games are listed in roughly chronological order.

    Subterranean Stryker (ZX Spectrum) - The very first Tim Follin soundtrack was written for a game by brother Mike (yes, there are three of them). This is still fairly simple stuff and not all that great. Well, I guess everybody has to start somewhere.

    Star Firebirds (ZX Spectrum) - An arrangement of Starvinsky's "The Firebird". Still pretty basic but this is already simulating 2 channels.

    Vectron (ZX Spectrum) - A big step forward in terms of sound design with (I think) up to 3 channels at once.

    Future Games (ZX Spectrum) - Drums !!!

    Agent X in the Brain Drain Caper (ZX Spectrum) - An epic 8-minute track with up to 5 channels. Also, the drums sound a lot better now.

    Chronos: A Tapestry of Time (ZX Spectrum) - This is the first Follin soundtrack with support for the 128 models. When played on that system the AY chip is used for the drum sounds.

    Agent X II: The Mad Profs Back (ZX Spectrum) - This one also exists in "beeper" and "beeper+AY" versions. All the in-game music is AY only.

    Raw Recruit (ZX Spectrum) - The last of Follin's beeper soundtracks on the Spectrum. Also available in a "beeper+AY" version.

    Now that you have gone through all of that, I have good news for you! In 2-3 days, when your ears have stopped bleeding, you can look forward to this wonderfully normal Follin tune which I have included as a bonus

    Missile Ground Zero (ZX Spectrum)

    I have a request:

    Imitation City (NEC-PC 8801)

    I need this rip to make a complete "Toshi Adventure Series" thread.

    I just had a look at this game, there seems to be no music, only sfx. Is there a maybe a trick to get the music working?

    Is there a way to get the FM Synthesis chip version of the FM-TOWNS version of Illusion City? If not, then maybe you can get the soundtracks of all of Data West's Psychic Detective series. If that cannot be done, what about Die Bahnvelt for the X68000?

    I currently don't take requests for FM Towns games. There are PC-98 versions of the Psychic Detective series but I can't find any disk images for these games. Good news is that I can definitely do Die Bahnwelt.

    James Pond: Underwater Agent (Amiga) - Cheerful tunes by Richard Joseph.

    Alien Breed 3D (Amiga) - First-person shooter with music by Bjørn Lynne. The original release on floppy disk didn't have much music, so I included the tracks from the CD32 version as well.

    Lethal Crash Race (Arcade) - Pretty good mix of techno and Japanese influences with lots of vocal samples.

    Starball (C64) - 80's disco music by Chris Hülsbeck

    Any good Amiga soundtracks that kinda use the same instrument samples that Terminator 2 the Arcade Game used?

    I have some more arcade stuff to request for you, nx666!!

    - Power Spikes (A volleyball game developed by V-System. By the way, the sequel sets it in the far future, lol.)
    - Prime Time Fighter (An strange Taito boxing game with unique boxers, including one wearing a luchadore mask, lol.)
    - Rafflesia (An unusual shmup developed by Coreland and published by Sega.)

    Well, that's all for now, nx666.

    If you are looking for something that uses the exact same samples then maybe check out the other soundtracks by Allister Brimble. Alien Breed, Alien Breed 2, and Sky High Stuntman are the ones that are stylistically the closest to T2.

    But if you want more of that same style then have a look at Deep Core or Alien 3 or some of the stuff by Barry Leitch and Keith Tinman (Lethal Weapon, RoboCop 2, TFX, Zone Warrior).

    nx666, I think the audio I used for the old system that had the good MIDI stuff was called Crystal-something. If you think you can look into that and somehow rip those soundtracks again using that audio, or if you want to use Soundblaster, that's fine. I'd be very grateful either way.

    My ultimate game soundtrack request: Master of Monsters: Disciples of Gaia (complete soundtrack) - Ongoing almost 20 years now, this was one of my favorite soundtracks growing up. If ANYONE can rip the entire soundtrack, which is about 30 tracks, I will be eternally grateful. Even though it would be a fleeting dream at this point...

    Black Viper (Amiga) - Racing game, some of the hard rockin' guitar tracks are pretty good

    Die Bahnwelt (X68000) - MIDI files played on the OPM chip, as a result(?) the instrumentation is a bit bland. This soundtrack was probably written with GM in mind.

    Clystron (C64) - Never played this game, but it looks awesome. The music is by Thomas Detert.

    Coalminer (C64) - Another Thomas Detert soundtrack, the intro theme is a cover of "I'll Find My Way Home"

    Rafflesia (Arcade) - Fairly unspectacular music in this Sega System 1 game.

    Crystal SoundFusion maybe? But that's the name of a chip set that was used in various sound cards and doesn't really say anything about the actual MIDI hardware you had. But I wouldn't be able to record that music anyway, unless I had access to the actual sound card and its driver.

    That would be a really long list, there is simply too much good music on these systems. Here are some fairly arbitrary picks:

    Amiga: Dragonflight, Hoi, Mysterious Worlds, Nicky Boom
    Atari ST: Wings of Death, Obsession, Leavin' Teramis
    C64: Eliminator, Xenophobe, Stormlord, Dominator
    PC-8801: Armored Beast WerDragon, Providence, Star Trader
    PC-9801: Possessioner, Armored Flaghip Atragon, Flame Zapper Kotsujin, Meikyuu Gakuensai
    X68000: Alshark, Spanner-X, Arcus 2, Desperado
    ZX Spectrum: Light Corridor, Sokoban Perfect, Black Lamp

    Hi Ska Do (C64) - With its East Asian influences this is somewhat reminiscent of the Last Ninja soundtracks.

    He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (C64) - Music from the tv series converted to the C64 by Ben Daglish.

    B.A.T. (C64) - Adventure/rpg hybrid with music by Charles Deenen.

    Power Spikes (Arcade) - Volleyball game also known as Super Volley '91.

    Daraku no Kuni no Angie: Kyoukai no Mesu Dorei-tachi (PC-9801) - Hentai based on Alice in Wonderland, the music is by Akira Sato.

    Giza! XIX (X68000) - Another soundtrack Akira Sato had a hand in. This one also looks like a mix of adventure and rpg.

    Got any good PC88, PC98, X68000 games that are not pornographic and not filled with hentai that have very good music, like RPGs?
