Sonic 2 (SMS/GG) (WIP) [VRC6] (0.5 beta)

Postby HyperswordDelta » Fri Mar 04, 2016 11:22 pm

first legit post yay
My first major project, which actually got dropped for a while due to a major loss of data, but now that I'm a fair bit more experienced, I've brought it back. One thing I should note is that I usually export to nsf, and play it in stereo (because NotSoFatso), so I used some tricks to make it sound better in stereo. Either way, I just need some feedback AND a bit of help on song 3, more about it below.

Before you go on about stuff though, I know there's stuff I gotta fix.
TO-DO:
-fix volumes (mostly fixed)
-fix aqua lake drum solo (it sounded better when I actually played it though what the hell???)
-fix snare on noise channel
-fix lone vrc6 pulse channel on gimmick mountain
-figure out issue on underground zone

For some reason, one line of Underground Zone sounds really wrong, specifically line 19, yet what's there should be correct. If I could get some assistance on that that would be great.

EDIT- Boss (SMS) finished, volumes mainly fixed
EDIT 2- Pxx detunes added to echo channels, one more song finished (see module comments).

WOW this is loud. You should balance the volume out, and put a P81 on the echo channels to prevent clashing.
EDIT: never mind, I didn't read your "to do" list. Sorry. However,
MARK YOUR 0.5.0 BETA MODULES.
People get annoyed when you don't mark your 0.5.0 beta modules.

However, other than frame 19 in Underground, these are quality covers. Nice job.
wow this is total BS

Fantastic concept. You really need to put Pxx detunes when you have two channel echoes. Also your accompaniment channel(s) tend to be overly loud.

re: wrong notes,
Are you using a program to listen to the soundtrack that allows you to mute GG channels?
If not, I suggest using the joshw archive and foobar2000

Yes, but I don't use it as often. Also, Pxx detunes have been added, I've yet to change the file.

So far this sounds pretty good. I wonder, though, do you have to mostly stick to just using 50% Square waves? Only some of the songs seem to use other duty cycles. I know the Sega Master System can produce only Square Waves and Noise, but I personally would take advantage of the 2A03 and VRC6's advantages. But it's your cover, so that's up to you. Anyway, keep up the good work!

Sounds great so far. However, some tracks don't sound quite right.

Erm.. I'm sorry to ask this, but... Where's the file?
I think you deleted it by accident.
My nickname is "Roddy" now, my Minecraft days are over. I just can't change my nickname here. Oh well...
