OG PS4 capture, trim and then upload.
Here is a clean version of Baby Stepps without any background noise. Once I start to mix and edit this it will sound like a whole new thing.

I find myself having so much fun with discovering new sounds.
This next one sounds like some singing from the other end, if you know what I mean.

Dohnotts before a session…

This kinda random but i had to share somthing as i can’t stop thinking about it… The Music that plays during the beginning of the game, when sliding through star fields… is it ever the same sound?
I’m going to sign off and play some more. I will have a few recordings tomorrow and we should share and compare.

Yes. NMS has very little consistent “music”, most of the arrangements are put together generatively. I think the beginnng part has some restrictions as to what bits and pieces it can use, but the ones it does use can appear in other situations.

The only piece I have noticed that is always the same is the music you get when entering a Space Station for the first time. It is an excellent piece that really captures the moment.

I made several recordings of the start screen music. I think the start screen plays songs from the same selection as you mean? the start screen tune just continues into the starfield?

Every time I start, it chooses a different song (or noise) :wink:, but I had the impression that they repeat over a longer time period, and I got the same ones again (they were familiar), it’s nit “infinite”.

I didn’t check whether the repetitions were the same note by note though. There could be procedurally generated changes. I hope our recordings will have some overlap and we can compare variants.

Also the starfield lasts only a minute, whereas I can record on the start screen as long as I want. And I also recall that the part of which I did not keep the recordings was “muted”. In other words, the starfield music was a muted variant of the start screen music…?

It was a while ago, and it may have changed as well. Well, keep an eye out and report whether you have a similar impression?

How are you going to upload the clips? Just on YouTube? All in one file (I’d have to add some slideshow for video) or each clip separate? Mine are maybe 1-2 mins long each.
