OCR02123 - Sonic the Hedgehog 3 'Red Sphere, Blue Sphere'

Recommended Posts

Probably my favourite track of Chaos along with Walk on Water. Kinda simple but everything is automated and blended really smoothly and the source is perfect for the style. This was the track that really made me want to play the game again just for the bonus levels, because it's faithful but in a kickass way. Fun name too :3.

Hm. While halc's latest submission had me thinking about Kirby, this mix reminds me of Super Mario RPG.

Anyway. This one kind of goes back and forth for me: there are sections I was really getting into and others that I didn't like. I dunno, maybe I just don't have the screech tolerance to listen to electronica anymore? It used to be one of my favorite genres, but I seem to be falling out with it more and more lately. The squealy sound that comes on around 2:50 kills it for me: I was on the fence about this mix before that, but that just sounds terrible to me.

That said, this was overall cool enough that once I've got a good bit of time on my hands, I'mma check out Project Chaos.

I don't see why people are complaining about the sound at 2:50. I think it blends perfectly into the mix. I did not hear it as a "squealy sound", rather, another synth used to prefect the mix. chthonic never disappoints and this mix still backs that up.

For a mix that got run over by a Jeep, this is pretty dang awesome. This is the kind of music that would go in an HD version of Sonic 3, for sure. Tasteful arps, cool gated windy-noises, nice pads, good choice of leads, and that almost everpresent BOP kick. It's a winner, especially with that screeching OHSHITNOTHATSAREDSPHERE brake noise. Kickass.

Hang on. I know this mix. Its good.

I can only reckon that most people that like sonic 3 and ocremix have heard this due to project chaos, and if not WHY????? GO DOWNLOAD IT NOW.

My opinion is that this is a classic mix of trance and chiptune (I typo'd that as hiphop, WHYYYYYYY), which is pretty cool. Drums are a little generic sounding, and i'm not sure I like the drum kick but seriously thats nitpicking for an older mix like this.

I gotta say the best part of the mix is the ARPEGGIO SECTION (1:07 onwards) That whole middle section, for being somewhat liberal, is awesome.

And the source is of course killer. Thumbs up for this one :D

Man, I really really like this mix.

I am listening to OCRemix for quite some time now and I like chiptunes!

Thanks for this mix, I really enjoyed it.

It's already in my best game music playlist on my phone!

Greetings from Woutie, The Netherlands.

This mix has been around for a while but has never been posted officially to OCRemix. It was part of the album "Project Chaos" which should be listed under the albums section of this site.

Other than that, I like this song, too, and have been keeping it in my playlist for a couple of years already :)

It's an alright track, and it's a kind of cool beat-driven Sonic remix. I don't think anything really stands out about it for me. I am glad that more Project Chaos is posted though!

I'm not really familiar with the sonic games, but this does sound reminiscent of Mario RPG in places. Great stuff, despite its clear olderness (I was a little confused at first).

Also I swear I didn't mean to come up with a kind of similar prototitle for that one remix you know about, chthenjamin Briggs, even though I named it about a week after this was posted. I'd never heard of this. :<

How yeah, I hear the Mario RPG-like beat to this. That's pretty sweet, actually. I've always loved the Sonic 3 special stage tune and to hear it get this kind of upgrade is a day brightener. The ending was nice, but I would have love it if the die out lasted just a bit longer. All in all, this a cool little ReMix.

Awww, yeah! This is actually the first OCReMix I've ever discoered. I discovered it in summer of 2012 as a Project Chaos ReMix. Then I discovered the entire album, and then I came here. So, being the first ReMix for me, this is especially awesome. I still dig the happy mood of it.
