It's a great track and a perfect fit but I have one question, is there any way that the end could be edited to cleanly loop?

The forum discarded my previous attempt at posting a long and well-written response, so i'll do it again, in brief.

I tried. Didn't work. The WAVE track (and derivatives) are made to loop cleanly (i.e., on the beat) with silence. I'm not sure if MIDI allows leading or trailing silence (last time i tried to do that it cropped it during playback). I might look into it again, but i promise nothing.

A crossfading done by the DoomRL music engine would do the trick quite nicely.

Somehow this music reminds me of CastleVania music.

And also, this music is great, that's already told, but I think it's too long for such short level. It would fit into the main game, if only you removed those cathedral-specific moments, like the beginning. But however, I suppose there will be nothing left there.

Anyway, great work on this thing. Awesome one indeed.

Due to setting up a better MIDI synth engine, i have updated the MIDI file(s) with slightly tweaked version(s) of themselves. Other formats will follow soon enough.

Simon-v - the MIDI file itself is changed? Or only the renderings?

The MIDI was changed (mostly channel panning and loudness tweaks). I expect the renderings to be prepared and re-uploaded later tonight.

The MIDI renderings (MP3, OGG and FLAC) were successfully uploaded. Enjoy, and play "spot the difference"!

nice song.  am I a bad person for thinking of Europe? "It's the fi-nal show-down!"

it sounds like it gets cut off mid-phrase at the end (mp3) - is this just because I'm listening to it outside the game? putting two copies into the playlist doesn't seem to help.

Admittedly, there is a small split-second gap at the very end of the MP3 version that prevents it from looping perfectly. The OGG and FLAC versions seem to be unaffected. I'm not sure what to do with this, except joining the "bleh, MP3" choir in the back row right over there. Perhaps i am going to release an "album" version someday that will feature seamless looping, extended length and a proper fade-out. Someday.
