Sonic The Hedgehog 3 / Ice Cap Zone (Remix)

Recommended Posts

Just came across this. Ice Cap Zone is one of my favorite Sonic 3 tracks.

I like the arrangement and the airy feel of the intro - it actually sounds chilly. However, you need to tone down the volume and EQ the bass and percussion. Way too heavy in comparison to other elements like the hi-frequency chip-tones.

I like the breakdown at 1:29, but I think you should put something else in here, a fill of some sort. How are you for soloing on that keyboard? It would be a good place to rock out a bit and see what happens.

I really like the way things come together at 2:13, this is where I hear the overall sound best, IMO. Too boomy at 1:03.

How do you think the ending sounds? I think it sounds cut short, ending on the last note of the main rhythm. if that's what you're looking for, then go with it, but to me it does seemed chopped.

As a first time producer, you should be proud of this. This is really good work, and I hope I see more from you. Cheers and play on!

Welcome to electronic music production mate, hope you enjoy it.

I find it difficult to comment on arrangement, or the quality of any particular sound as your mixdown makes it pretty impossible to hear any distinct sound. It's not meant as a slight by any means, as it's a super common mistake that people make early on (we've all been there).

Definitely the place to start here is with balancing. Either some of your elements are way too loud or they just need to go.

Look forward to seeing another iteration of this.

Thanks
