Here's a little treat for my fellow 90's kids! I've incorporated a few clips from Bill Nye the Science Guy into a Drum n Bass remix of this Sonic classic. No vocalizations this time, I figured the clips were enough.

I spent a the majority of the time with this piece messing around with the synth customizer, finding new sounds to match the style I was trying to go for. I've made a lot of cool new ones this time. Lots of settings I'm learning.

I've discovered some things i missed, just by exploring the Envelope Generator (EG). Combined with more of the inside settings like bend, pan, and velocity, this is how you can create somewhat of a modernized sound. I was amazed to know this especially since the program I use is from 2004.

I also decided to take a dive into my own past, by adding in my own personal solo, just like I used to in the 00's. I tried to be a little more complex than usual with this one, and tried my best to make everything flow together. That part took a lot of time too, and I hope it was worth it.

There were a few other things I wanted to add in, and it sounded good in my head, but not so much digitally. This piece ended up being a lot shorter than I was shooting for, but sometimes, less is more.

I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it. Seriously, it was quite an experience. Thanks for the listen. Remember, downloads are FREE, and honesty is appreciated.

Great content!! Keep creating! Never stop!!
Your sounds are inspiring, and beautifully nostalgic, reminding me of the old OG sonic days and the things that i loved from those times, the feelings of speed and motion for sure.

Love to see more work.

I had a little hiccup from 2010 to 2016 where i was pretty much on hiatus from it. I lost my equipment. But I'm back now. And proud to keep going.

Saying thank you wouldn't be enough. Is much appreciated
