what is the license you release your song under? cc-by-sa or gpl 2 or later?

New Tracks are always welcome. :) Anyway you should remove the thunder and long drawn-out voice effect as sound effects are an no go for ingame tracks. Iam not sure about the "chorus sound effect" (appears first time at TS 1:32). In my opinion it doesnt sound good. And you should change the constant hum in the background (maybe to a subtile melody). Perhaps you should also add some reverb.

Good track. Should fit well into this game.
I agree with Crystan that you might want to remove the constant background hum, as it gets stale after a while. The chorus effect is good IMO, though.

BTW, where did you intend this to go? Geo/battlescape? Or did you simply make this and see where it fits?

Don't agree there Crystan. Used properly SFX can really make a good contribution to a music track.  ;) :P

The hum does go on a bit in this track, but over all, I do like it, frostbyte. If you want to do something about the hum - we'll have another listen.  ;D :D

Well it depends on what SFX youre using. If they dont distract the player and they fit to the situation, sure. But i think in UFO:AI there shouldnt be any background sound effects like thunders in a music track. Well sfx in intro music is another thing... ;)

Very nice track! May be it should be a bit louder, but in general it is impressive.

Hi there,

I wanted to download this so I could listen to it and give feedback, but the link re-directs to a page that just gives me an error message - I'm not sure what the problem is, did you take it down off the site?  Or is it just because of the server's location (I'm in the United States)?

I also tried to download it a day ago and got the same error.

Still works for me. Finland, Europe.
