OCR02293 - *YES* Mega Man 9 'The Skull Fortress'

Recommended Posts

Sixto Sounds

Game: Mega Man 9

Track: Flash in the Dark (Wily Stage 1)

My second track for the Mega Man 9 project. This was actually a track I had planned on dropping but at the very last minute decided to give it a go. I wanted a kind of anime-intro-song feel and I'm pretty happy with it.

Nice big opening, but a weird transition; it felt like it dropped a beat or something. Um, otherwise, this is kickass. Great solo, cool additional bridge section, and overall it rocks a lot. When I first heard the source I actually thought "This sounds like something Sixto should remix". Since apparently Sixto is reading my mind to take requests, do some FFMQ stuff next, please. ;-)

Andrew hit all I would have said. Definitely fits Sixto's style just right, and he did a great job with it. It does feel like there might be a lost beat in the intro, but nothing terrible. Just like his other mix, I think this one fits pretty cookie cutter, and I'm hoping you take a few risks in your next sub!

Since we're throwing requests at Juan, Legend of Mana please!

Love the energy that Sixto always brings to his tracks. Guitar work is the highlight here - love the tone and fantastic performance. Drum work is also super solid here. Arrangement doesn't take a big detour from the original, but he's taken his own tack on the progression and brought regular (awesome) sixto performance flourishes.

A couple nitpicky issues: compression was a touch high here, mostly evident on the drums. Though they still sound great to me. Also, I wasn't totally sold on the counter-melody (violin?) lead. It was a little hard to hear and the attack was a bit slow to keep up with the fast pace and note changes. Again, nothing big to find fault with here, though.

Yes

EDIT: My apologies! I humbly request F-Zero, Sixto style.
