Wow, this is one is a surprise to see. Big names in there, and quite promising with such a varied selection.
I'm wondering: anyone knows if these are full-fledged arrangements, or chiptune (as the title implies) versions in similar style as in MM9?
I find it rather redundant for them to be doing chiptune arrangements of chiptunes :p
Whatever the case, looking forward to this.

There's an MP3 preview of it here. (http://www.inti.co.jp/cd/chiptune/sound/chiptune_remix.mp3) It does sound a bit redundant on paper to arrange them as chiptunes, but the more I think about it, the more I'm intrigued by the idea.

There's a very nice selection of tunes and artists here. Can't wait!

DO WANT

Not only an interesting and varied line up of arrangers, but the selection of music from "newer" games in the classic Mega Man series, such as Rockman 8 and Rockman & Forte.

Listening to it right now. I'm very impressed. Not only the quality of the music, but the fact that so many lesser appreciated tracks got arrangement love here. Gravity Man, the Intro Stage of Mega Man & Bass, Bright Man's stage, etc. When I first heard of this album, I expected to see mostly MM2 stuff on here but they really surprised me.

Track 5's composer is Naoshi Mizuta.

Starting at 3:50

I was under the impression that he was the composer anyway. His style is prevalent in that track and a few others.

I have to say, I'm listening to it right now, thought it would be craps but it's really good; will buy a copy.

And per this interview (http://www.gamesetwatch.com/2009/10/sound_current_chiptuned_rockman.php), Ground Man's theme from R&F/MM&B, arranged in track 6, was composed by Akari Kaida. One of my favorites from the game, might I add (although the opening stage theme is one of the best SNES tunes of all time).

i would love to see a complete composer breakdown for R&F. i guess those are the only two tunes that we have info for at the moment...

anyway, this release kicks ass, virt and KPLECRAFT's arrangements especially.

The booklet has lots of great info. Most of the original composers are named, but the exceptions are tracks 9 and 10 having no further details.

Added the additional title "CHIP TUNED ROCKMAN" since that appears a few times on Inti's website (image here (http://www.inti.co.jp/) and browser title here (http://www.inti.co.jp/cd/chiptune/index.htm)).

Thanks for the scans, Carl. Was anyone fortunate enough to get this at the Tokyo Game Show?

Those two games didn't have end credits, so I guess they couldn't track down who did the music to them.

Pretty badass that we got credits for most of those though; it's not a full breakdown of the games, but it's a start. Hell, we got Wily Stage 1 from MM2, that covers half of all fan arrangements. And I got my top two MM tracks of all time (I could listen to Bright Man and the R&F opening stage theme until the heat death of the universe), so I'm pretty content.

That's a really cool chiptuned album indeed.
Special mention to Gravityman arrangement by Zinger, groovy chip style at its best.

I would also love to see a full breakdown of the music tracks for R&F.....and Rockman 1 & 2 & 4 & 7 & X1 & X3 & X5 & X7 & X8.

Make it happen Capcom. Please?

EDIT (02/03/10): On second thought, lets get Inti Creates involved in this petition; they have the key and the courtesy to actually disclose this information.

Because I have nowhere else to put this:

Rockman & Forte
Kirikiri-chan (Toshihiko Horiyama - Confirmed via Remastered Tracks Rockman Zero): (Title, Stage Select, Game Start, Stage Clear, Get a Weapon, Save & Load, King Stage Demo, King Stage, Game Over, perhaps?)---->Anything with a whailing guitar that sounds like Yuki Iwai or Setsuo Yamamoto

Naoshi Mizuta: Staff Roll and Player Select sound like Opening Stage---> Also, anything that has a more complex, slower melody and very low use of guitar and/or is generally longer [Think Dan's Theme from Street Fighter Zero]. ---->Pirateman (?), Astroman; Also, anything with a panflute sound--->Dynamoman, Magicman, Burnerman (Connection made from similar melody between Dynamoman and Opening Stage); Shop (sounds like Burnerman); Database (Sounds like Astroman)

Akari Kaida: Other than Groundman, Boss has the same-sounding start; the bassline in Last Stage is the same as the one found in the first six seconds of Boss, just slowed down a little; Crystal Stage and King Stage Boss both have the same organ-esque sound as Boss and Groundman. Tenguman sounds like MMBN1, Pirateman sounds like Tenguman (via the piano), and Coldman sounds like Pirateman.

Also, the GBA version was arranged by T. Arisaka ---------------> Chihiro Arisaka (?)

just noticed:
09 Megawater_S Stage, WILY TOWER 4 (Area-2A03 Navy mix)

the end portion of this track breaks into 2 songs from the game 'carrier air wing' by Manami Matsumae

not sure how to express this in the notes

Is Tengu Man from the PSX or Saturn version of the game?

Kudos to rushjet1 for setting the record straight once and for all. PSX theme came first.

PSX Version

I'm shot down again. :(

Funny, I actually clicked on that link before. :p

But I didn't wait to hear that other versions were posted. :o
