Regarding the battle music, maybe break those tracks into individual tracks/videos, to allow people to customize or switch moods on the fly, or a method of jumping to mid-video using time-stamps. I'm not sure if YT timestamps work on mobile platforms, though. There should be some more attribution for each on the youtube page itself, unless these are original compositions, in which case attribute as you see fit. WarhammerTV youtube channel has some Tau Model announces on it, and each one has a unique, "Official" Tau soundtrack. I don't think GW has an in-house sound design team, so those tracks might be available independently to a sound hunter. If it is in-house, maybe one of the designers has a soundcloud or something.
Ah that makes sense. Thanks for the encouragement. I really appreciate someone giving me feedback. Oh, by the way, now that the sound board is starting to look and sound good, I'd like to share our ATT sound board with DakkaDakka and other related websites. Kinda like ATT marketing. Hehe... make em jealous! Anyways, it would be fun to promote this project, as it was first resurrected and perfected within the community of ATT!
The YouTube efforts... may aim is to make a thread for this actually. These ideas are very useful. YouTube thread (I just don't have the time yet) (The Storm Surge needed a complete sound redo - as it does not have a railgun)...
Central Idea: Battle music length aimed at 1000pt / 1500pt & 2000pt games.
1000pt: (45min battle music)
5min: Authentic Tau Empire inspire song
8min: Setting up model music (thoughtful music that not too much action)
25min: Action music / with a mixture to keep things fresh
7min: Resolution music / victory music - Pump music to play another game
Music is in the Mech / Anime / Battle / Pacific Rim / Mechwarrior genres to maintain the "Sense" of Tau. (No rock, or Goth-Rock genres for Tau)
Have vocal ques to let the players know how much time is left. (Like BIG BEN clock)
Every 15 minutes a RailGun fires... or something that is recognizable and something that instantly reminds people of Tau. OH! like the sound of a flying GUN drone saying the time in TRON "YES" "NO' voice overs.
As you mentioned: have youtube markers that can be clicked on to get to different places in the song, instantly. Yeah... I don't think that works for Mobile.
It would be ideal if the music player did not overtake the mobile device and still allow the owner to play battle music and still access the Tau sound effects.
Anyways... that project will keep me busy for a looong time. LOL. - I made a youtube channel to take care of those efforts.
