I've been meaning to post this for like a year or two now. I was hoping to finish the feature I've been working on for it, but I was reminded once again about this today, so here it is.
I bought this CD expecting it to be the soundtrack to Dawn of Ys PCE, without any voice/sound effects overlapping cinema bgms. When I played it for the first time, I was disappointed at first to hear something that sounded like it came from a console/computer from the time. But as I continued to listen, I noticed that it sounded like Genesis sound to me. The more I've played it, the more it sounds like Genesis sound and nothing else. I've found tracks posted acroos the internet with random labels such as X68000 and PC-98, but everything I've heard from those consoles sound noticeably different than this. Plus I've never heard/seen anything reliable that Ys IV had been announced or planned for anything else other than the canceled Mega Drive version. But I also realize that I've listened to this soundtrack so many times that I may have lost perspective. The PSG parts and several FM instruments sound like signature Genesis sound to me.
My sound editing program won't open the ripped tracks for some reason, so I had to use a video editor to put together a rough mix of clips.
So what do you guys think? Does this sound like the long lost soundtrack to the MD version of Ys IV, or something else?
