Nice to see you still hanging around here Dansteph!
 :beer:

...Historically, Dan has delayed until a complete, stable version is available...
Well...Not meaning to push Dan or whatever (he decides what to work on)...but the stable Orbiter2016 version has been released a year ago.
Of course we all know Orbiter development is a hobby and Dan (not only him!) prefers to work on something that pays him off, I don't blame him for his choice.

Martin meanwhile keeps on developing his betas with his own pace, and (hopefully) he'll never stop doing it, but this doesn't mean there is not a "complete, stable, released Orbiter version".

Cheers.

It would be nice to see a new orbiter sound eventually. No rush, Dan. Just be sure to be online enough so we can occasionally give you a good ribbing. ;)

I see you're a First Contact fan, doc, but my vote would go to "Also Sprach Zarathustra"

2001 odyssey all the way! ;)

I would prefer "Gayane Ballet Suite Adagio" but I am 100% that it is copyrighted. Why ? Because I made a video with it and YouTube gave me a warning and put pub on the video, all the money will go to "Warner Music Group" ... :wall:

Do they really need this money ? :wonder:  (They will not even have 1$ with the views I make :badsmile:)

And "Also Sprach Zarathustra" in not enough calm to be used I think. (I dont think you understood what I said, I dont know how to explain it :badsmile:)

In the 2001 range, we have just one choice left ... "The Blue Danube" ! :eek:

I Prefer Zarathustra for it's opening. A bit bombastic but honestly it's just so iconic.

But you know, if you're looking for a 'calm' replacement, I've always had a soft spot for "Chopin's Nocturne No  2 in E-Flat Major" Just find a version with a slower tempo.

Edit: This one is pretty good.

Yeah, it is a pretty good music that could work great with Orbiter. :top: And I think it had some similarities to "Air on a G string", a music I prefer by far to the OS 4.0 music. :love:
