 Ultima 7 Black Gate Soundtrack Remake
Author: JD Music 
Date:   02-14-15 23:25

I decided to start a seperate thread since this soundtrack is now complete and the other thread was becoming too long. Since I'm always trying to improve upon this soundtrack, this thread will be used for song updates and improvements.

I've gotten my hands on a copy of CineBrass Core to replace my old outdated brass library, and a copy of Berlin Solo Woodwinds to replace my old outdated woodwinds library.

So below are some songs that have been updated with the new libraries.

Title:
- Bootup
- Market Place
- Victory
- Orchestral I
- Orchestral II
- Fight's End
- Fanfare of Lord British
- Fanfare of Progress
- Fanfare of Courage

UPDATE!

Title: Fellowship Theme

Comments:

Used the new Berlin Flute and Oboe and replaced the Brass with CineBrass Core and Pro. It sounds so pretty now. Gloomy, but pretty. :)

The remake soundtrack is now gone.

That's all I'll say about it here.

If you follow me on Tumblr; you already know why.

I've returned.

The Ultima 7 soundtrack was uploaded to Bandcamp again several months ago, and I've recently begun work on updating all of the songs again.

Some of these have been updated with new orchestral libraries, and some have new orchestral drums. Most should sound improved over the original versions.

Here's a list of the songs that have been updated thus far.

- 01. Bootup Screen
- 02. BG Intro
- 04. Title Screen
- 11. Fellowship Theme
- 20. Mysterious Murders
- 25. Stones
- 31. Wilderness
- 34. Battle ~ Combat
- 35. Battle ~ Danger
- 36. Battle ~ Fleeing
- 37. Battle ~ Flight
- 38. Battle ~ Hidden Danger
- 39. Fanfare ~ Courage
- 40. Fanfare ~ Lord British
- 41. Fanfare ~ Orch I
- 42. Fanfare ~ Orch II
- 43. Fanfare ~ Progress
- 44. Fanfare ~ Fight's End
- 45. Fanfare ~ Victory

Eventually I'll begin work on adding new tracks from Serpent Isle.

The album is also free to download again as a whole.

Just one song today.

29bg. Chamber Music

This took more work than I had planned due to replacing all of the instruments with better libraries.

Available at: http://jdhardingmusic.com/album/ultima-vii

Updates will probably come slower from now on due to the amount of extra work each of these songs will require to bring them up to my quality standards.

4 songs updated today.

These two were not much work. Just simple updates. No instruments replaced.

02bg. Intro ~ Guardian
endcr02. Ending ~ Quotes

These two were a lot of work. All instruments replaced and recorded.

23bg. Britannia Rule
31bg. Fortune Teller

Available at: http://jdhardingmusic.com/album/ultima-vii

Only 9 songs remain that need updating.

I've found midi files for the "Caves" and "Arrival of the Guardian" songs from The Black Gate, so I'll eventually get those two finished. Then The Black Gate soundtrack will be complete.

Replaced most of the instruments for this one.

I've already finished the cave theme, so there's really only 1 song remaining to remake for The Black Gate.

Serpent Isle updates will be over in my Serpent Isle topic thread.

I haven't checked on these topics in several months now.

The Black Gate soundtrack is nearly fully finished. Only 1 song remains for that soundtrack, which is the "Guardian Finale" song. I think it plays after you defeat the Guardian and destroy The Black Gate (oops, spoilers).

I will not be doing ambient tracks for this game since I cannot find good sources for ambient sounds other than going out and recording them myself from actual nature sounds. And my MIDI synth is incompatible with the sounds the ambient MIDIs used, so I can't record them off of that.

Serpent Isle still has 10 songs I need to work on. The list of them is below.

- Bane's Theme
- Batlin's Theme
- Conversation with Gwenno
- Dupre's Death (oops, spoilers)
- End Game
- Ghost
- Gwani Theme
- Serpent
- Wall of Lights
- War

I'll eventually start work on these, but currently I'm taking a break from music to focus on Lets Play videos I record and produce for Youtube.

Here's a little update for this soundtrack project.

I've renamed all of the songs over on my Bandcamp's Ultima VII page with the code names for use in Exult. You can download the album and rename these. There's really no easy way to do this other than renaming each one individually. Just make sure to download the OGG version since it's the only one compatible with Exult.

I haven't decided yet if I want to split the album up into 2 so Serpent Isle is separate. It would make for easier downloading.

Bandcamp Album :
http://jdharding.bandcamp.com/album/ultima-vii


But there's now an easier option. I've renamed them myself, put them into proper folders, zipped it up using 7zip, and uploaded it to my Google Drive. You only need to install Exult and configure it to use the digital audio in the setup, then open the zip and drag and drop the "Data" folder into the main Exult directory. When you start up Exult again the music should play.

This pack already has the ambient tracks from the digital audio downloads found on the Exult download page. I won't be making new ambient tracks. I've also kept several of the Serpent Isle songs since I have not finished covering all of them.

Google Drive :
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B6oN3HAltR9ueHY4TTVoUnRBbFE


Have fun.

We have the ability to "patch" the digital music files. Meaning you can just place the files in the "music" subfolder of your patch folder and it overrides the normal digital music. JFYI

You can patch it?

But how does that work? It wouldn't know which songs were which without the codes. Or does it work as long as the code is somewhere in the song filename?

It's basically working as it is right now.
Instead of overwriting the ogg files in data/music, you put your tracks in gamename/patch/music (e.g. If your Black Gate is installed in c:\exult\blackgate, the music files go into c:\exult\blackgate\patch\music) with the same ogg filename of the track it replaces.

Only when I converted a patch to a mod did I realize we have this digital music patching capability (AND had to ask Marzo if we can do that already).

(Note, gamename/patch/music is the default patch folder location if you haven't changed it in the exult.cfg - see <http://exult.sourceforge.net/docs.php#patch_install>)

Thanks. :)

Now that this project is complete I'll continue work on finishing my orchestral remake of the Ultima Online music. I think UO uses OGG or MP3 music by default now, so it's easier to use the remade songs. I know they updated the music, which sounds nothing like the original MIDIs.

Excellent work.
So as a summary to the thread, what is the best way to get this working in Exult? I know it's in the thread, but I figured I would confirm everything because I have a simple brain.

We are better off downloading from your google drive and then putting it in the patch folders?

Putting it into the patch folders keeps it from overwriting or replacing other songs, like the ambient tracks. I didn't do any ambient tracks (birds, trees, wind, waves, rain, etc.).

So for example..

If you have Black Gate and Serpent Isle installed in:

C:\BlackGate
C:\SerpentIsle

You create folders like this:

C:\BlackGate\Patch\Music\
C:SerpentIsle\Patch\Music\

Then put a copy of all of the OGG files from each 7-zip archive into each of the music folders.

You could also put them into the Exult folder, but I think you need to download the ambient tracks and the Exult title song off the Exult downloads page.

I added a Readme file to the folder that has instructions on how to get the soundtrack working in Exult, with both methods of how to do it.

The Exult main theme is from one of the Ultima games, right? I could remake that too and add it to the soundtrack. Or I could choose a different Ultima song for it.

The ambient files I'm not so sure about. I thought about trying to recreate them with ambient sounds, but I haven't decided yet. I also can't find MIDI files of those tracks anywhere.

Exult's main theme is not from an Ultima game. It was made by Matt Kimmich for "Age of the Dragon" project and is called "Medieval Town". Matt gave us permission to use his songs for Exult.

I found all of the ambient MIDI files, so here's an ambiance track for the wind and rain. This is just a test to see how it sounds in the game. If I like it, I might do the rest of the ambient tracks.

Just as a reminder, this entire soundtrack can be downloaded for use in Exult from the link below. This link will never change, so if anyone wants to link to it via their website, go for it. And you have my permission to use it in any sort of Ultima videos on Youtube. Just give me credit for the work I did.

The version in the link provided is the OGG file version, which is compatible with Exult. There's a read me file there with instructions on how to get the soundtrack to work in Exult.

I'm doing a remastering for the entire soundtrack project. This is to make sure all of the tracks are level with each other when using them in Exult. I'm noticing some tracks are much louder than others. So I'll focus on fixing that. I will not post updates when I'm done with individual tracks. I'll only post an update when I'm done with the entire soundtrack. Hopefully this doesn't take too long.

The OGG copy on my Google Drive will be updated after I'm done with the entire remastering process.

I'm noticing a lot of these older songs I went the lazy route on and used really cheap instrument libraries instead of the nicer stuff I used in the Serpent Isle songs. I may need to do more than just a simple remastering. I may need to re-record a lot of these. So this will take longer than expected.

Great. Could you possibly post the remastered supplemental packs on Drive as well?

Here's some more songs remastered/re-recorded.

---

19bg. Market Place
20bg. Seedy Bar
21bg. Sea Shanty
22bg. Stones

---

I wanted to do a quick post here because I did a lot of extra work on "Stones" due to it being an iconic Ultima theme song. So all of the strings were expanded upon and widened out. I hope you guys like the changes.

I updated my Google Drive so that all of the OGG files can be individually downloaded and also listened to. I think it will also zip them all together if you select all of them and then download. I uploaded all of the updated songs to the drive as well. This should make it easier for me to delete old songs and upload updated songs as I go.
