OCR02705 - Sonic Colors 'Go into the Light'

Recommended Posts

I feel stupid for sending the first post to one of my own tracks, but in response to Vinnie's post, it's Roger Craig Smith, not Jaheel White.

But I do appreciate the feedback nevertheless, both from the panel and the site visitors :)

Subjectively, I would have liked richer pads and a richer bass tone overall, but the sounds work well together (though I will say the PWM lead at 3:47 didn't quite work tonally), so I like it. :)

Love this song! Those chimey parts in the first 2 minutes are a really nice touch, especially when paired with the piano later on. Bev did a really stellar job mixing all the themes together in one cohesive mix too! The song flows together quite well. I really enjoy the overall atmosphere and instrumentation throughout, definitely one of my favs from her!

Matt summed up my musical arrangement/production thoughts pretty well here (I LOVE how many musical nods to various Sonic tunes there are), but I'll add that I not only love your sounds/atmosphere/groove/etc. on this track, but I feel that it's some of your best production work as well. I've already told you a couple times how much I love this song, and how it always gives me effing chills when I listen to it :)

Hmm. Looking at the list of themes you couldn't be helped but think it was more of a Sonic mash-up in general. Would help if I played Colours, but I digress. It's smooth and seemly, a nice little listen to relax too with a bottle of Magners and watching some Cricket... yeah that's my summer wrapped it if it wasn't for work ;)

"No copyright law in the universe is gonna stop me!"

And with that bold proclamation still ringing in the ears of his enemies, Sonic's alignment had finally and fully shifted to Chaotic Good.

Love the audio clip and mood and progression on this track - nice work!

Ah, that very first audio clip was great for many reasons for me, but I'm loving this ReMix. The soft mellow piano being back up by some nice beats and a little bit of a mysterious ambiance that this kind of genre excels in, it all binds together to make quite the arrangement. It's nice that it all picks up a bit near the end. Been listening to this one all week. Great work Rexy.

Pretty sure I heard a little nod to Sky Deck in here

Yep! That's one of 6 hidden cameos in there - 5 Sonic-related, 1 in a completely different game series. Wonder if anyone would find them all... :wink:

Mmm... So dreamy and smooth. Really love how Bev managed to join all the sources into one cohesive song with solid transitions, build-ups and other stuff. My favourite part here is probably 3:46 - 4:40 just because of the leading synths :) The past-paced part later on is a great touch as well. Stellar work from Bev as always!
