Free Album, Abinox, Features A ‘Super Setup’ Of Nostalgic Chips & Synths

Free Music Friday: Joe from video game music netlabel Pterodactyl Squad let us know about a new release, lpower’s Abinox:

The Canadian composer wanted to examine and explore how 16-bit video game soundtracks were put together in the old days, and he assembled a ‘super setup’ of nostalgic chips and synths (TurboGrafx-16, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, NES, OSCar synth, Yamaha DX7) with which to do so.

The music on Abinox does not always loop, allowing lpower more freedom than usual to study the emotions of in-game progression, the ups and downs, victories and failures. So rather than focus on a specific storyline or genre, Abinox is actually a game soundtrack about game soundtracks.

It’s available to download for free from the Pterodactyl Squad site.

  1. “Oh, dear. Another chip tune album.”

    I’m glad I was wrong. Clever arrangements with unexpected turns that smell of higher education. Well done.

  2. Quite interesting. Maybe a “second engineering mix” with a strong sound design (effects, mix..) would deliver a very nice LP…
