I had quite a bit of difficulty with this one! I wanted to capture the sound of the Neo Geo while being able to create something that I would've made if I had the chance to score a Neo Geo game. I looped this twice for your listening pleasure. If you would like to send you the loop so you can use it in your non-commercial projects, let me know! :)

Here's to you, Tom. Thank you for building this community and everything you've done for our industry.

It definitely feels like I'm listening to the pre-compressed version of an SNK track. Now I'm just torn on what kind of game it would fit into. Probably not Neo Turf Masters! Either way I could sit back and listen to this on loop for hours, imagining a gameplay loop to go along with it.

JohnMontoya responds:

YES! That’s EXACTLY what I was going for! I’m so glad someone caught it! I used a bunch of Roland samples from the SC-8850 and SC-88 Pro for maximum authenticity. :D Thank you for your review!


Dang dude this brings me back, makes me feel like I'm back in mega-man land, or some other Japanese ps1 game.

That's funny I you mention akai products, I enjoy them as well. I only have the akai mpk mini

JohnMontoya responds:

YESS! I'm so glad that I was able to achieve that sound! There's a reason why I collect vintage music gear--to create authentic 90s video game music! :D You should ask me about the AKAI S6000 I purchased from Frank Klepacki. ;D Thank you so much for your support!

this sounds really good i like the trumpets :)

can i use this in a king of fighters flash game?

JohnMontoya responds:

Of course! Thank you for your support! :)
