I know the Top Gun theme is very dated to some but I thought it would be fun to see for myself how it might fit into the Falcon interface.
Using the wave editor reveals that the track's volume is maxed out and the clipping counts run into the hundreds. Reminds me of Sony/BMS records re-releasing music using the 'Loudness' remaster technique.. Crappy, crummy, ruined alot of good music with that method.
And since I hate criticizing Falcon4, I will say this...
The opening film video and the User Interface music are about the lamest excuses of product representation I've ever seen or heard.
And I've heard a bunch, folks.
I was disappointed to find alot of the interface music had been removed from the campaign's background. The cheesy Allied score would get on someone's nerves in about 3 minutes.
And the planes taking off in the background was a really sweet concept as you studied the war map.
So this told me two things:
The team wasn't focused on the gingerbread...they were focused on repairing the codes and war entities...
The team was reaching release deadlines and didn't get to put a final polish on the interface.
Falcon 4.0's opening video was super sweet and does anyone here remember that video being used as an add during the 1999 Superbowl?
How F'in cool was that for us falcon freaks-
I merely replaced the oem Allied avi w/the older F4 avi.
Thanks to the above coding instructions, Pink Floyd will add a sweet dark undertone...although FFalcon5's theme music is excellent for such a background-
As far as converters go....one can use WavePad 3 or whatever the latest version is.
You open a sound file using WaveEdit and it'll convert it on the fly.
Those that use Creative Labs Soundblaster Live know about its integrated wave editor.
