The developers of ScummVM are pleased to announce that as of today, the
classic game Beneath A Steel Sky has full support for
James Woodcock's Music
Enhancement Project within the latest daily build. The project started way
back in January 2006 as James Woodcock
committed himself to use the original MIDI files from various Point and Click
Adventure titles, creating enhanced versions using modern MIDI equipment. He has
already released the Simon the
Sorcerer, Discworld and
Inherit the Earth versions
and can now add Beneath A Steel
Sky to his completion list:
"I have tried very hard to remain faithful to the originals in respect to the excellent composers creations..." says James Woodcock, creator of the ScummVM Music Enhancement Project. He continues "...There has been a lot of support and interest from Beneath A Steel Sky fans, who have been monitoring its progress very carefully and it is with great pleasure I can finally play Beneath A Steel Sky using new versions of the original soundtrack with many thanks to the developers of ScummVM for all their hard work in making this feature possible".
James uses the Yamaha Tyros4 keyboard hooked up to his computer via USB and after going through various tweaking, recording and editing, a finalised music track is born.
