Sonic & Knuckles - "Eggman's Flying Fortress" (Flying Battery Zone Act 1)


Recommended Posts

Sonic the Hedgehog was the last movie I saw in theaters before the pandemic, so I've been on a whole SEGA nostalgia kick with my remixes. Flying Battery Zone is one of those compositions that ably demonstrates what the Sega Genesis sound chip can accomplish in the hands of a master composer, so I welcomed the opportunity to put my own spin (no pun intended) on the piece. The bass line is bananas! I don't feel that I got the violins right, but after five hours of arranging this track, I had to draw a line and upload it, otherwise I'd never be done, and no one would get to hear the music lol. I hope you all enjoy it!

Hey Native, great work! Love the mix. The guitar sounds excellent along with the synths on the left and right. I agree the strings could maybe be better, reminds me of a James bond riff. Also the bass could be louder and the drums are really good. The toms could be beefed up with a compressor and louder as well. Just my feedback and enjoyed this, hope to hear more

I've been having a lot of trouble recently with my bass EQ. I don't have monitors, just a pair of basic Logitech speakers with a subwoofer, and that's made it difficult for me to gauge how things turn out across different sound setups. It's been a problem for me not just with this remix, but with a lot of my recent remixes (-_-)

I'll definitely work on fixing the bass mix for this track. Thanks for the feedback!
