X-wing music

Recommended Posts

Ever since this was announced I have been feeling a keen sense of nostalgia over the old X-wing and TIE fighter video games. In fact, one of the first things I did was put my X-wing vs. TIE fighter CD-rom in my CD player to play the music. Sure, I could listen to any Star Wars music, but the CD-rom includes only the music that was played in the game. Boy, it takes me back. I'm just wondering if anybody else knew that, and I thought I'd share. If you have X-wing vs. TIE fighter, pop it in you CD player and give it a listen!

P.S. You have to start from track 2 because track 1 is a never-ending blank track.

Yeah, the dynamic music in X-Wing: Alliance was fantastic, I actually downloaded the tracks for a bit of added immersion while playing.

Do we know if there's any worthwhile soundboard apps?  Artoo's "whaaaaaoooooooooo" noise would be great for ejecting an Integrated Astromech...

It's called 

 

X-WING soundboard 

I have it on Android but it may not exist in the app store anymore. It's perfect

So....yeah...I guess it isn't offered anymore.i can't find it. But a search for the name found a similar but not as good one that seems to be designed specifically for x wing miniatures

I have a little button that plays the Imperial March when you press it, so I keep it at my side and press it whenever an enemy ship dies... 

 

I converted a Hallmark Keepsake Lamda shuttle to X-Wing. Sometimes when it executes a maneuver I'll press the button to make it play the Imperial March. The engines glow blue too!

I've also changed my default ringtone to a probe droid's signal.  But who hasn't?

Mine is the main Star Wars theme song.

I almost got that awhile ago. Might try to hunt it down.

I enjoy just having "Star Wars" music playing during my matches, but kinda quiet like background music. I also have an explosion sound saved on my phone for when ships are killed.

There is an app called X-Wing Pew! Pew!

It has some sounds for ambient/annoyance in games. I downloaded it just for the TIE/ln roar...

There was an era where a lot of games had their music as actual audio tracks on the CD (in particular, I loved listening to Age of Empires II a lot).  Unfortunately, I only borrowed the X-Wing series from a friend, so I never had the CDs long enough to really listen to them separately.
