Star Army OST: Volume 1

Star Army OST: Volume 1 is Star Army's first music album. It consists of 12 electronic music tracks that Wes created in Magix Music Maker using sound loops. The tracks are in various genres such as vaporwave, synthwave, and electric house. It was created in 2018.

Wes initially purchased the loops used in this project for personal use but has started licensing them commercially, which opens up the possibility of actually selling the songs on sites like Bandcamp, which could help more people discover the Star Army RP.

I'd almost say this makes me think of a city or highway more than a beach, personally. Pretty good though 😛Arbitrated

I can picture this rolling while a couple is on a walk next to the beach –Miko

7. Nataria Retooled

Originally this track was in the key of C and was called Kagami Suns, but the sounds used were similar enough to the Nataria Factory track that it sounds kind of like an alternate version so it was renamed as Nataria Retooled and the key was changed to the “scarier” key of D#. The name Kagami Suns was later used for track 10.

“definitely works as an outro for the OST, got that “coming to an end” vibe, like the music that plays after the final boss. I recognise the 2:35 mark, this part was from natiria factory wasn't it? or it may have been a test one you made but its definitely familiar”club24
