JD Harding Released His Ultima 7 and Ultima Online Soundtrack Remixes Last Month
I reported on JD Harding’s remixes of music from the Ultima 7 and Ultima Online soundtracks back in February of 2015; what I didn’t realize was that the good Mr. Harding had gone on to published the (apparently) finished versions of both collections on his Bandcamp profile in September of the same year.
The First Age of Update: As it turns out, the date listed on Bandcamp was in error; the good Mr. Harding only finished work on these collections in July of this year…the culmination of two years of effort.
The Ultima Online album thereat comprises six songs — Britain, Cove, Minoc, Moonglow, Trinsic, and Vesper — and is (interestingly) no longer a paid work, strictly speaking. Whereas before the Ultima Online tracks had a list price of $1.50 USD, they are now simply listed as Name Your Price. Or you can subscribe to Mr. Harding’s extensive Bandcamp profile for $5/month, and listen to all his music at your leisure.
And the same is true of the Ultima 7 album, which comprises a whopping seventy-two tracks (some of which are, admittedly, only a few seconds in length). These tracks can be used to replace the default sound files in Exult, which in turn will allow you to experience them as you play through Ultima 7, both The Black Gate and Serpent Isle. Instructions on how to set everything up can be found here, along with what appear to be downloads of all the tracks.
