New year, new game, new experiments. This is the first in a series of remade music from Sonic 3 & Knuckles.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is awesome! I could listen to this all day! The tune is just-I can't explain how awesome it is!

This is sweet, and from one of my favorite Sonic games! Even though the percussion is still soft, it actually goes really well with this mix. It has really luscious instrumentation which is made punchy by dynamic range compression. It sounds like of a sort of electro-acoustic soft house mix. The transition to Act 2 is perfect and so is the very ending of the song. It is very well composed and arranged and is much nicer than your last mix! 5 stars from me, great job! Keep it up! Dude also, I'd love to collab with you on some of these, just let me know. ;)

Thanks! Punchy was exactly what I was going for - I'm always impressed with the music in Sonic games, and I want to emulate the feeling I get when I listen to the originals. S3K always felt to me like it was trying to go slightly "dirtier", taking itself away from the usually melodic Jpop-style music of S1/2 into something more atmospheric, so I've tried to reflect that. I'm constantly learning new techniques and styles, and I find that switching to a new game (especially when it has different composers and a different style itself) helps to do that.

The arrangements are fairly close to the originals (I've added a couple of parts in some places to fill it out a bit), with a few octave changes. The instrumentation was mostly done by playing parts of the song on a keyboard and flicking through voices to see what works, and then playing with filters to get the sound I want. Since nearly all the parts play a prominent role in S3K, I've revisited the way I pan instruments and work EQ to try to get the balance right. I might remake the Sonic CD remixes I've done in this way, to see if it improves them too.

As for collaboration, send me a message and let me know what you're thinking.
