"Mephiles' Whisper" (Download here)

Had some downtime today, so after recording a few things I owed people, I decided to do a little experiment. When working on TOME, I mix the audio, but I usually let Shady handle all of the mastering and sound effects design. I hadn't done any sound effects or volume balancing, mastering etc. in a long time and thought this'd be fun to try out.

This is a scene from Sonic 2006, with a conversation between Shadow and Mephiles about the apocalyptic future. I did all of the vocal effects and lines; with Shadow I played him straightforward, but with Mephiles I cupped my hands over my mouth as if he truly had no mouth to speak with, then applied a different filter for when he converts to his crystallized form. I also added the dialogue and enemy sound effects from the pre-boss battle scene where Mephiles' name flashes on the screen. SO YEAH just a lil' somethin'.

I am very impressed by this! It's weird, because Sonic 2006 is hated so much. I heard the game of Sonic Boom was even worse. You know how to show such strong emotion. This seems just like conversation that would be in the game. Well, it is, I just don't know about it.

You have awesome background music as well. It seems like you got more well known for goofy stuff like "Go, Go, Parody Rangers!". It's nice to know you can experiment with all kinds of things. It's a great whisper.

While I thought it was good, one thing bothered me. When I played through Sonic '06, and encountered Mephiles, the thing that stuck to me most about him was his lack of a mouth. While you obviously tried to make it sound like he did not have a mouth, the thing that really disturbed me about that feature of Mephiles is that he sounded as if he did have a mouth, and that it simply sort of came out of the area where there was nothing. Don't get me wrong, I still thought it was well done, That's just one thing i noticed.

Really fun to hear you trying this stage out it was real good to. :)

If the voices and sounds were so awesome '06 would be better. But unfortunely sounds and voices are not enough :/
