Parn Parn's Music Station v2.0lite

 

December 4th, 2014: Finally got around to fix some music links. Not all of them, though; I recently lost a backup and I'll have to dig up the others from storage. For now, you can download the Knightmare Gold Original Soundtrack again. But this is temporary since I already have a new website in the oven, and all music will be made available in higher quality and friendlier formats.

May 14th, 2006: New soundtrack. Yes, new soundtrack! It's the official release of the Knightmare Gold Original Soundtrack. =) But what's Knightmare Gold? Go to the files section if you want to know more... And of course download some music. ;) Just click here.

January 9th, 2006: OMFG! New track! And you even didn't need to wait another year... :P It's the same as always: the update can be found with a dark red background, while last update's track appear with a slightly reddish background. The update is at the end of the list... You'll have to scroll the page a little. I still have a few more tracks on the queue, and I'll certainly release them this month. Promise. ;)

May 11th, 2005: New track! Can you believe? :) This update is marked with a dark red background, while last update's nine tracks appear, as usual, with a slightly reddish background. By the way, I didn't stop; I'm just too busy lately, but I'm working on more tracks. Stay tuned! ;)

June 4th, 2004: Big news: I moved to a faster server! Now, downloads should work all the time. :) We had a MSX Pizza Candanga last week. If you want to know more about MSX Pizza, you can check the pictures here. You can expect PMS2 to be revamped, too. ^^

November 25th, 2003: It took a long time, but I finally have a lot of new music for you. :) It's the complete rearranged soundtrack from Knightmare (Majou Densetsu), an early MSX shooting game with medieval fantasy theme by Konami. I made it for Knightmare CD... But what's Knightmare CD? It's a hacked version which runs on a real MSX - provided it has an IDE interface and a CD-ROM drive connected to it. If you don't know what an MSX is, please refer to The Ultimate MSX FAQ. It's a joint production by three people: one modified the game to access the CD soundtrack instead of the original PSG sound, another tested it and made some samples for distribution in the MSX Ja˙ '2003 event, and another one (me!) remade the soundtrack. As far as I know, it's the first example of a real MSX game with CD soundtrack. Very nice. ^^ As usual, the nine new songs since last update appear with a dark red background, while last update's songs appear with a slightly reddish background. :)

I'm Brazilian, and MSX Ja˙ is the most traditional MSX meeting in Brazil. It happens in the city of Ja˙, a relatively small town in the state of SŃo Paulo (southeastern region). I attended the meeting and it was great! I still have some MSX Ja˙ '99 pictures around... By the way, my blog moved. Now, it's here. Beware of my Portuguese. :)

Now a message to everyone: PMS is not dead. I will put more music online, but I can't say when. Music is my life; I listen to music every day and when I'm not tracking I'm always thinking about songs to track. Another thing: as Michael well pointed out, I forgot to put my music disks in this page. Here they are:

Parn's Music Disk 1
Parn's Music Disk 2

Currently, these disks only would work on a real MSX. If you want to take the pain, you can create a DSK from them and load in an emulator. I'd recommend NLMSX because of its nice sound emulation (although it's sloooowww). If I have the time, I will create a loader which will work both on a real MSX and on emulators, for your pleasure. I also intend to create an online list to the disks' contents, detailing it a little.

 

Knightmare Gold Original Soundtrack
Some of these tracks were arranged from various MSX games, but all of them were used in Knightmare Gold, an improved version of the old MSX1 classic fantasy shooting game by Konami, Knightmare. Knightmare Gold, by Amusement Factory, has many new features not present in the original version, including but not limited to: better graphics in MSX2, smooth scroll, CD audio music and more. You can even try it in an emulator, albeit without CD music. If you download them all and then the playlist, you can hear them more or less in the order they are used in the game. Compared with Knightmare CD, released by A&L Soft in 2003, all but three tracks were enhanced, and even these three are now presented in greater sound quality. But don't use these tracks to build the game CD, because they loop less and are shorter. These are only for you listening pleasure. :) Tracks never featured in this website before are marked "new". The others are new revisions.
