Metroid Prime 2: Echoes-- Title

Holy cow, this is my heftiest tracker piece yet! Weighing in at an impressive 1.2 megabytes zipped, it's still only half the size of a reasonably-compressed mp3 version of the real song.

Ahh, but what a piece it is! Don't count it out: I think it's safe to say that this one will blow you away. In fact, I guarantee there isn't a better rendition of the title song in Metroid Echoes anywhere else. Across two weeks of near-daily work, I pulled all the samples together myself from various sources and sound fonts, and the result sounds nearly authentic. Trust me. You won't be disappointed.

Special note: For some strange reason, Winamp has a problem with the vibrato on one of the instruments. But in ModPlug and ZC itself, it sounds just fine. Keep that in mind when rating this submission.

Additionally, while a midi version wouldn't do it justice on the majority of sound fonts out there, it IS possible this time. All I need is someone who can edit in the note bends and volume slides, because ModPlug ignores them during conversion.

Chris Collins's excellent "GeneralUser GS" sound font, without which this song (And every other Metroid Prime midi in existence) would sound much worse.

Based on the song by Kenji Yamamoto.

Beautiful, even if wasn't totally original.

I like it, it's very accurate. Too bad I can only play in in Zquest v2.11 >_>;
Still, 5 stars for its greatness.
