Skate or Die! (AdLib mix)

Usagi Yojimbo theme
First in pool
Tomb Raider theme
I loved the Skate or Die! series. Used to play it all the time on the NES. :P Too bad the title music failed in comparison to the C64 version.

Just so you know, Rub Hubbard ROCKS!

EXCELLENT!!! LOve the Adlib Bass sounds. Nothing can beat the harsh OPL2 and OPL3 sound. :D

Thanks. XP I was trying to make the theme sound how it might've sounded had AdLib support been featured in the DOS version of Skate or Die!, but it only supported either the single channel PC speaker, or the Tandy PC systems which used a 3 channel speaker.

The spin-off, Ski or Die did feature AdLib and unlike Skate or Die, the best versions where the DOS and Amiga versions. The NES is a close 2nd since it had the full version of the title theme whereas the NES version of Skate or Die! had the theme shortened. :P

I think EA made a good move NES-wise when Skate or Die 2: The Search for Double Trouble had it's music composed specifically with that system in mind, and again Rub Hubbard was the composer, and proved he was just as good at composing for the 2A03 chip as he was for the SID chip. The digitized guitar samples returned in addition to vocals! Perhaps the most used in an NES game ever. >w<

Okay, I'll shut up now.
