This is my version of Starlight Zone from Sonic the Hedgehog. I made this using Famitracker, a sequencing program for making 8-bit styled music. This song uses the expansion chip for the Famicom called the VRC6.

You can find this and any other songs I've covered on Youtube at my Channel; VolcansMusic. If you have any suggestions or concerns, I'll gladly listen!

Great 8-bit song! you could of added more sound beat, if you did than it would of been better. :)

nice remix man keep goin'

The people who made bootleg versions of Sonic for the NES, including Somari, ought to have taken a leaf from your book. Not saying that piracy is good in any way, but Somari and its music are hackneyed in comparison to this. Allow me to give this a general 'well done.'

My suggestion would be to try make this piece your own and put a different spin on it. Like the way Picopict does for Mario themes.

If you did this without expansion chips, would you still be able to produce this many layers of sound, out of curiosity?

Keep up the good work!


VolcansMusic responds:

I probably could do this without an expansion chip, It probably wouldn't sound quite as good, but I could probably get it pretty close. Thanks Trois! Glad to see a comment from ya. ^^
