Human Race - Level 1 - Summer Mix

by Graeme Norgate



Level 1 from Mastertronic's Human Race from 1986.
Rob Hubbard wrote the original on the Commodore 64.

From the man himself
"The tunes tried to capture some of the feel of the game, evolution etc... I only used 2 SID
voices for all these tunes because I used the other for SFX......

Most of the tunes were sketched out on a small keyboard and manuscript paper. I used paper to keep track of the basic ideas and arrangement, and I still have all the original manuscripts.

A lot of the manuscripts are not readable because I used to work very fast and never updated many of the changes I made. I used to use a machine code monitor to edit music data and sound patch data on the file while the tune was playing. This allowed me to really fine tune the SID parameters for the music."

A bit more complicated compared to what I did... I fired up a synth and sampler in 2001 and spent an enjoyable day remaking this tune.

Kids these days eh, don't know how easy they've got it!
