OCR02795 - Sonic the Hedgehog 2 'Ethereal Skies'

Recommended Posts

OMG THIS IS AMAZING! Totally relaxing, refreshing, and with a clear scent of love. I have never realized how much did I love this song until hearing to this. Congrats!

Really appreciative of this, thanks!! :)

Yes, there was a lot of reverb. If I were to change anything, I'd probably decrease the low frequency levels in my reverb plugin just a bit.

If anyone wants to check out my performance as well, it's here on my youtube channel! And any more comments are welcome of course!

A week ago:

"Hm, Sky Chase sounds lovely to do on solo piano. Perhaps I could experiment with this?"

Last night:

"Holy crap, Pumpkin King beat me to the punch! And he did good :O"

Seriously, I really like your piano performances in the Dwelling of Duels, and I'm so glad you managed to keep those skills sharp for OCR submission and all. Really proud of how far you've come!

Yeah, I too appear to be in the drowning verb camp with this, but it can also help a bit to high-pass the reverb as well to prevent the low-to-low-mids from getting all cluttered.

But the performance was nice and raw; very reminiscent of pu_freak's early work, and from what I saw of you developing a nice character in the DoD it could flesh out equally as well with other tracks outside of it.

Welcome to the clan! :)

Sure, there is a lot of reverb, but it doesn't quite bother me that much. Lovely playing and a very cool OCR debut. Nice and short, this ReMix hits the spot.

Thanks guys!

Rexy, I really appreciate the kind words! Especially coming from a talented pianist like yourself haha. I'm sure you could make a good version of this song as well. I will say that I've been getting better and better over the past few years with the piano. I'm kinda focusing on different stuff now and using my keytar, but there's nothing like sitting down with 88 keys and playing piano.

Piano sounds wondeful. This is pretty soaked in reverb, yet not enough for it to be a massive problem. However, the soundscape could have been as full with a little less. Awesomely emotional, very nostalgic, I dig it! :D

Wow, how did I miss this the first time around?! It's a wonderful song for this kind of take. I feel like I'm wearing fine dress and sipping a drink while looking out the window of an airship, perhaps a zeppelin, while a master pianist caresses the ivories nearby. Airy, simple, sweet.

Super beautiful.  Brings back memories and captures what I felt like playing a lot of sonic in general.  Maybe the reverb could have a few EQ tweaks, but I really dig the effect.

So it might be unorthodox to come back and post a second comment on a remix, but I just wanted to let Joe know that I've been running this thing on repeat for awhile and it just sits better and better with me the more I listen.  I think an artist needs to know when their work is appreciated at the core, and it is!  Makes Monday morning a lot smoother.

Hey thanks MrKyle! I do check in from time to time. So your comments, as well as others, are always much appreciated! 
 

I'm thinking this could be a perfect morning alarm, right? Just add some chirping birds with some outdoorsy ambience to the mix and you're all set.
