What are you two talking about? When some of us are talking about the bass, we are talking about the first piece of music that is played in the blog video. It starts at 1:40 and is a very electronic sounding piece. It sounds nothing like the orignal starsector music. I sounds like you have confused the drums with the bass. Funnily enough, if the electronic sounding bassline was removed, it would sound similar to the original starsector music, but as it is currently the electronic sounding bassline is overwhelming.

I'm not a fan of the BASS track, it has a very explicid feel of 90's retro-futuristic-dystopian theme to it, not matching the faction. The original theme ]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_UR0i_NiAU[ has a very smoooooth and interwoven feel to it while this sounds very blocky and structured. I feel it would be better to make it closer to that. But who am i to judge, right? :)

Hope to see the next release soon!

Wheee~!
This sounds amazing! I love it!
Edit:
On second and further listen, the tune sounds slightly steampunkish, the hissing reminds me of a boiler. I like it!
((REALY looking forward to seeing what modders do with this))

For reasons that i can't really outright explain this track reminds me of a few things.. one is

and one is

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAIgYbqFkro

That said, i really like it, but not primarily because of it being grandiose, but more to the point that i feel the audio dares. This is a weird explanation to give, but i feel a lot of the older games 'dared' with their music and soundscape, with my primary example being Red Alert 2. Music that draws you out of your comfort zone and says "Here's something that's intense enough to make you care", versus just ambiental or tunes you outright can forget once you stop playing, their role purely functional from an audio standpoint, no message behind them.

Completely unrelated, but StianStark> Did you get to play Remember Me? I though the soundscape and use of music and cues in that game was absolutely fantastic, and it was one of the few triple A games in recent memory that gave that much care to it, i felt. Olivier Deriviere did great things, but more to the point, his work was used extremely well.

LE: Now that you got me talking, the quiet summer guitar of Life is Strange is beautiful to quiet you down and set the mood to draw you into the game, no matter how you feel before clicking the exe.

LE2: Yeah, i really, really, really, really love game music and audio.

Amazing music Stian! Probably up there as some of my favorite games-soundtrack already, really does convey the feel of the Hegemony. Can't wait for the new update :)

I know this is kind of rezzing an old blog (and now, a REALLY old blog post, and an overshadowed one considering the latest one), but I just re-watched the video...and oddly enough, it's changed (at least, from what I remember).  Did Stian append some gameplay of the in-dev patch to the beginning of it while we were all distracted?

Good catch! And yes, it has changed (99% sure)

I don't remember any of that video in it, just the still background image until the sound system.
