Name this tune…...

…….and ill buy you an ice cream!

Im not ever certain its an amiga tune but given the video and the YT channel owner is an Amiga nut I'm guessing a strong possibility.

I have Emailed video poster but no reply.

Anyone? Tune that you hear in the first 30 seconds or so?

Someone in comments states its Another World. But thats not how I remember the music.

Any help greatly appreciated.

It may be from some AW remake, not Amiga version.

I was also thinking about Another World, maybe the music from the demo the short grey of virtual worlds.?

I'm intrigued to find out as well. If only there was a shazam app for tunes other then commercial songs then we'd find out.

I doubt it is aw remake tune. Sounds like a custom tune made for the demo at the time

It definitely sounds like the soundtrack of Another World 15th/20th anniversary edition (available at gog.com), but I can't say for sure since it's terribly overamplified.

It may be over amplified or clipping to use the correct term but its nothing that stopes you from recognising the tune.

If you distorted say the tune from Turrican to that extent I could still tell you exactly what it was.

Ive watched throughout a load of YT another world videos and can hear anything like it on any of them. I may be wrong but there is a lot of long play videos on there that show the game from start to finnish.

I think I recognize it, have no idea from where though. I would guess it's from a trance song around 1993/94.

The song might just be a long sample and not even a module.. Although It sounds like a demo module to me..My first guess would be a Pro-tracker module as they are very common, with so little information to go on this might take you years to track down I wouldn't give up hope just yet.

A long sample??? Mate no way can you sample for over a minute on an Amiga 500.

And what would be the point of sampling something just to play it back? If your going to just sample a tune you like what not just record it to tape?

I only mentioned it as a possibility (a remote one I should add) , it's not unheard for the 16-bit era. Besides if you had done all the sequencing yourself using real hardware you may want to sample it in large chunks, or even one large chunk.

Im from the 16 bit era mate and back then sampling was extremely expensive. Even the then industry standard S900 the champion until 88 could only sample 20 seconds or so and that was at a reduced bandwidth.

Mind the Amiga is an 8 bit sound source and in honesty I have no clue to its maximum sampling time. Thing is with the amiga being 8 bit sound you dont get the luxury to lower the sampling bandwidth if your sample;ing something like large chunks of music or in this case a compete tune.

Im not dispelling what your saying or worse flaming you, I'm interested in anyones opinions. But in that I have to put forward my own experience.

Id bet (another ice cream ) that its a mod. haha

Well sounds like we are in complete agreement, my money is on it being a mod too. I've used samplers extensively on the Amiga computers for my own modules, it's entirely possible to have samples that last longer than 20 seconds, even on a A500 with 1MEG proving sample rate is low enough with the right playback software, but it's highly impractical if your making music.

If there was some crazy algorithmic software out there that could analyse the song for pitch variations that was linked to a massive module database that it could check against other modules that would be awesome. Wishful thinking on my part

Oh me too fella. The Amiga and the C64 had a huge impact on my childhood in a very positive way.
