Remember Sonic? Well, he remembers you. And he wants you to know that he loves you.

waitwat?

Anyway, here's a sound upgrade for an 8-bit Sonic tune to the SEGA Genesis. I'll admit it's not much, but at least I used the Sonic 3 sound driver.

The section from 0:26 to 0:37 reminds me of some actual song I've heard and i can't for the life of me put my finger on it. It's like some summer Party Song from like some time in 1999.

"And I see the way/ you're looking back me/ looking back at you/ can't you see the way/ the way you see right through?" are the Lyrics I keep hearing in my head, which is weird because at first I thought it was a megaman level track, but there ain't no way I'm sifting through all 100 of those things.

Sounds decent, but I feel like you should tweak the bass. It sounds like it doesn't blend in quite right, but it doesn't sound bad. It just competes a bit with the main melody.

Not a must, but adding PSG would help it a little. I understand you're avoiding it to give it a more authentic Sonic 3 sound, but adding PSG as a backing would enrich it and tie to the original version of the music more.

Sorry if I sound too critical, I just know you have the ability to make this even better.

CuntMagnet responds:

Thank you for the advice, but I did use 2 PSG channels; they carry the melody. I used attack and decay envelopes and modulation to make them sound flutey rather than just straight square waves.

Epic! This is a fine track from Sonic 1 8 bit. This remix is really cool XD
