I am giving you a 9, as you have modified the song to be a bit slower, without losing the tune.
Most everyone butchers it by pretty much just trying to replicate it, or adding in more crap to make it all discordant.
On a pedantic note, I wouldn't mind the original bells put back in.
talent needs tools
mate, hearing this tells me that you have great musical ability. hearing it also makes me aware that you are limited to midi sounds and very basic synthesizers. making your music shine with puffy fullness with midi is difficult. get your hands on reason 3. Its worth every last penny. even fruityloops might help buff out your music. I try to use hardware and software to make it even more original sounding. get a microphone and mess up some samples. explore the possibilities.
i like the theme of all your music, all the games i used to and sometimes still play :D
I loved sonic&knuckles, (though there should've been a save mode!) and flying battery is one of the best stages ever!
Not bad could have picked a better song.
didn't really like this song on the genesis but this is a different story you are prety good but you picked a not bad song should have made a remix for the chemical factory level but this is really good has a good beat.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
