OCR02066 - Sonic & Knuckles "Chromium Asphyxiation"


Recommended Posts

I worked with Level 99 a while back to create a Rock Band custom for this track... It was fun, and I thought I'd post it here too if anyone else wanted to check it out.

If you've got a softmodded Wii, a 360 with Audition Mode, or Frets on Fire installed on your PC, you can play it yourself as well.

Again, awesome job on the track Level 99. :)

This one takes my pic for my fav of the 4 posted sonic mixes today.

This is a great example of taking a source that had the potential to be awesome but didn't quite fulfil it, and realizing that potential. Some might disagree, but thats my opinion here.

I agree that the production isn't the best it could be here, but its not anything that detracts from how awesome this mix is.

The arrangment is what really gives this one the punch into overdrive, its got a much better groove than the original which makes this a very satisfying listen.

Mr 99, I salute you :nicework:

Some cool moments, and some nice chugs, but I kindof felt this one is half baked. :-(

The trashy junk kit sounds very cool and has some nice parts, and the intro in general was great, but once things got moving, the sound was pretty muddy, meaning nothing really punched out. The breakdown helped give it some character, but otherwise, I was left feeling that it needed more polish. Sorry dude. ;_;

Iz okay, my friend. This is actually what I like to hear if people have issues with stuff. Always room for improvement and this gives me a good idea of what I should look to do should I attempt to do this style again. It was pretty ambitious of me to incorporate all those differing layers together because each one had something to "say" in the mix, so I'm not surprised that some people feel that it's a bit muddy in areas. I'll do my best to improve for the next one, as always. Lots of people made the same muddy production comment.

And for everyone who's left comments thus far, thank you. It's always appreciated.

Stevo Level-up GET! 1173 EXP remain to less muddy production!

Hello. I may not post much at all here, but I must say that this is an awesome mix. Though I may not know what "muddy" is defined as here, but if it's what I think it is, I think you could have solved that issue simply by adjusting the equalizers on each of your instruments used, and sharpen them with a bit more treble. But since it's already done, well, we'll just have to deal with it as is.

But that's not to say I think it's bad by any stretch of the word, oh no, I quite enjoyed it, and think it was fine just as it is. But, one must account for a very wide range of listening equipment each of us users have, and how different a song can sound on those systems, like the car stereo would have a better or worse sound than say, your home theater system, or even different brands of head phones and earphones, can sound vastly different.

Personally, I don't even use any kind of equalizer when playing music through my earphones because they have just the right frequency response ranges that take care of all the things the equalizer would normally, unless the song I'm listening to needs and extra boost somewhere, but normally that's not the case.

By the way, I use the Phillips SHE9500 earphones for my listening, and let me tell you, not only are they tough and reliable, they sound awesome with most everything I've listened to thus far. And they last almost forever. I've had my current pair for over 2 years now without a single problem, and my last pair lasted my just as long. So you know that's something in quality to be able to take what I've done to them and still keep performing great.

Hopefully we will hear more from you soon. I know I would be overjoyed to hear what else in audio awesomeness you can dish out with your next production.

Till next time, later.

Hard-edged Sonic greatness. Definitely a winning idea, and it works pretty much every time its been attempted. This has an awesome take on the main source melody, which I think is pretty weak in its original form. The guitar work and the added gravel of the production give it a much needed kick in the ass, and the result sounds terrific.

When things get hectic, the sounds do envelop themselves, which does give a less than desirable effect. But aside from the fact that I can't help but notice that the heavier sections don't pop as much as they should, it really doesn't get in my way of enjoying this.

It may not be the best metal mix around, but it does enough right for it be in the same company as the best. Much more of a success than a failure.

I honestly did not realize that I was about to review this exactly one year after it was posted. It just so happened to be next on my list of songs I still wanted to catch-up on and review. Anyway, the intro was awesome and I think the guitar work for this was brilliant. The whole ReMix is rockingly catchy as hell and the outro was pretty cool. As a lot of people have already said, it does get a tad muddy in places, but all in all, the pros outway the cons by quite a lot, so it's all good. Seriously, sweet stuff going on in this song right here.
