Did a true Sega Genesis cover of this theme from Splatoon. Again, done in DefleMask (no soundfonts), and I can provide ROM files upon request. Maybe somebody will be adventurous enough to flash it to a cartridge and play it on a real Genesis ;)


This is really good, it remains faithful to the original but is retro-styled which gives itself a unique flair to it and accompanied by a bouncy bass, making the song sound more complete as a whole. Overall: Really good, shame I can't use it though :3

This was wonderful! It had everything right about it! All it was missing was squids/kids. A very good remake of the song. Although not many people have gotten to the final boss and/or played the game. But I thought this was pretty damn good. It sounded almost exactly like the original song! The bass really helped. But the main melody was a bit weird... It just felt distant? If that makes any sense. It was
great though. Good job!

Thanks! Yeah, the melody may have been a little odd - the PSG channels (which were basically a leftover from the Master System if I remember correctly) are kind of a pain to work with. Not only can they be much quieter than the main FM channels for some reason, they are also several octaves too high so notes have to be manually adjusted. I'd have moved the melody to an FM channel but particularly with the intro chords I didn't quite have enough channels for that T-T

I originally wanted to make this a YMU759 mix (which is basically the bigger brother of the chip used in the Genesis) as that would have given me a whole 16 FM channels to play with - but unfortunately it has a really limited octave range, which just wasn't enough to cover the notes properly. Ah, the quirks of old hardware XD
