Sonic The Hedgehog 1 OST [2A03, no DPCM]

Postby Amilgi » Sat Oct 10, 2015 6:56 pm

This was a project I worked on during the end of summer, and figured I should release it now alongside all these other sonic covers.
I wanted to do the whole Sonic 1 soundtrack in the classic 2A03 style, which meant no DPCM and simplistic instrumentation. This was the first time I've done covers with a single instrument, which was an enjoyable challenge.

I made minor changes to some songs - mainly stripping out instruments and changing select tempos and octaves. The only thing I might do is add DPCM timpani similar to Mario 3, as the noise doesn't quite have the same impact.

Hope you enjoy

While it has quite simple sound design, I agree that this is "classic 2A03 style" and it is probably how it would've sounded if this soundtrack was ported to the 2A03.

I did hear a couple of wrong notes though, but it's nothing major.

But overall, I really like it! Good job on this!
Hi! I'm not really active here anymore but I still make music. Nowadays I mostly make dubstep with emphasis on good melodies and chord progressions.
