I really hope that the original soundtrack will be as close as possible to the CI3 music, which is amazing.
Take for example Mission 1 theme (they called it Mission 1 on the album version, and yes I did buy it).
For those who know little or nothing in music, the orchestration as you can clearly hear is diverse - sometimes the music is quieter, and sometimes it’s powerfuller, and also it’s somewhat thrilling…
(you can find it thrilling mostly on the orchestration part - 0:47 (pay attention to the brasses), 2:00 (pay attention to the horns and the sudden build up) and also the melody itself is thrilling…)
For the musicians here, please tell me what is the meter of the music, because it’s near impossible to count it right from the start. This is happening because the bass plays triplet - which is the ‘worst’ thing you can do to provide you the feel of the music. But, 2db didn’t think about what is ‘good’ and ‘bad’ for the feel of the rhythm, they thought about what is interesting and beautiful. (Something that they have done only again on the egg cannon theme, which is marvelous!)
Also, the sounds are more midi-like, but also way more pleasent.
