Dynamic Music Suggestions

Postby Monty » Mon Mar 12, 2012 2:27 pm

I've been listening to the official soundtrack and this gave me a few ideas on ways to make the music more varied instead of "same 4 bars of music repeating forever unless you fly". So here are my suggestions to make the game feel like your actions affect the music.

1: Run the music through a highpass when the player grabs more air than usual
One way I can see this one working is if the player grabs a brief jump, the music will enter a highpass slowly (and it might not even be noticeable), but if the player takes a huge jump, the music will slowly highpass for a few seconds before tapering off quickly into a complete highpass. If it quickly slams back to normal when the player hits the ground (on perfect landings), it makes the jump feel more like you actually got a good jump in. If you land on the roof though, it should probably fade slowly back to normal so you know from the music if your jump was crap.

2: Have the music wind down into a bridge when the player is on uneventful straights

3: Special variations in music based on distance from obstacles
Perhaps there could be chaotic sounding music beats as you drive closer to lasers, or maybe eerie humming as you drive past the blocks that appear in the road. Maybe urgent instrumentals when you arrive on level segments with the red plumbbobs hitting the ground.

4: Dynamic music sweeps and music variation based on distances from track segments/checkpoints
As you drive closer to a checkpoint, upsweeps and downsweeps could vary as you come up to it and drive away. Some segments of the track (such as purple areas in a blue level, or glass roads and wallriding segments) can have entirely different "verses" when you reach a certain point as you're coming up to them.

5: Entire level remixes based on vehicles

Sounds like some interesting things to look into for later Nitronic updates or if a second Nitronic Rush is ever made : )

These would be something I'd be willing to do if I was working full time on a potential sequel, or just full time on the game in general... but as it stands I'm far too busy with 4 game projects I'm currently working on, and aside from the highpass idea that is a ton of work to do to add on to an already fairly large sountrack (large in the scale of a student game anyway). If I actually had the time I'd be willing to do it if Jordan were up to the task as well.

The music ideas you shared above sounds worthy. I would be very happy to follow your suggestions if it can bring a better music. Music should set free, then only we will get the best music from the singers. That's what sell miles believe.

It is sure you will be able to make some really nice improvements in the field of music that will be seen as a good. It is through such ways by which you will tend to make something of great proportions in the long run.

I am so interested in music. So this blog is very helpful for me to understand more about music. Thanks for your valuable suggestions. Now I got correct idea about the variations in music based on the obstacles. Keep sharing more blogs.
