Regarding the "lost" Operation:Daybreak soundtrack... I thought it was too good to go unreleased so, I have attempted to rerecord all the cues as closely as I can - Please take into account that the original music that I worked from was lifted from the DVD release and I had to break down all the parts, trying to ignore the hiss, tank engines, gun shots, explosions and Nicola Pagett's screaming ;)

I'm still waiting for replies from the original publishers (Sony/Warner Chappell/Dukes Lodge) in order to give this soundtrack the release I believe it deserves, but so far have come up against a brick wall so, sadly, the project currently remains on hold as a work in progress.

The cues were recorded with the following:
Korg Kronos
Kirk Hunter Diamond Symphony
East West Hollywood Strings
Hammered Dulcimer
Logic X

I never thought I'd get to hear David Shire's unused synthesizer score to the classic war-movie Apocalypse Now, so I'm very happy now when it's been released on CD.

Watch on

I've been listening to this soundtrack a lot and I think it's pretty darn awesome!

Micke, what synths were used on the following scores?
The New Scooby Doo Mysteries (1984)
Super Mario Bros. Super Show (1989) composed by Shuki Levy
Duck Tales (1985)
And tons of other 80's cartoons and animated films.
I wonder what synths they used? Also, on The Lion King, Beauty & The Beast, and other Disney 80's and 90's films.
Keyboards/synths owned
Casio SK1/WK-7600
Yamaha PSR 19/PSR e443/MX49 Blue
iPad with Music Studio, Garage Band, FL Studio Mobile, and several VSTs, including iMini, iProphet, and iSEM.
