Download the SNDH archive, I think all this knowledge has already been catalogued.

DJAM: I guess you will find all originals in the HVSC c64 music archive... as far as I know Mad Max converted all tunes from the C64.

Unless there are same names for several tunes then this would be correct info:

Thanatos : julian breeze, the version Mad Max covered is probably from C-64 wich is by Rob Hubbard, so it might differ from the original Spectrum version (by Julian).

Ace 2 : Rob hubbard

Commando (main music and End tune) : Rob hubbard (original by : Tamayo Kawamoto) actually the Highscore music is Hubbard's original if thats what you mean by "End tune", the other music is a remix/medley of the original arcade music.

Delta : Rob Hubbard

Goldrunner : Rob Hubbard, originally he did this music for the C-64 game "The Human Race" and later re-used it for Goldrunner.

Ledstorm : Tim Follin

Sleepwalker : Must be the Amiga demo-music (MOD) by "Karsten Obarski" you mean, the game Sleepwalker is not in the SNDH archive and is afaik not using the YM2149 (it is STE DMA sound only?).

Are we to expect some more remixes? I really liked the last few.

The SNDH file called "sleepwalker-digi" is Tao's cover of Karsten Obarski's "Sleepwalk" MOD from the Amiga and not from any game.

Here is a link to info about the game Sleepwalker:
http://www.atarilegend.com/games/games_ ... game_id=18 None of it's music is in the SNDH archive.

Sleepwalker gamemusic in MOD format can be downloaded here:

What an amazing story behind the author of the original track; he's the father of tracking (sample based) music.
