The Brinstar Chemical - Mash of Sonic 2: Chemical Zone and Super Metroid: Brinstar Jungle Floor

Recommended Posts

My first post here, and I am sure I have a lot to learn.  I am having fun doing it though!

The original intent was to be vapor-wavy, kind of like that VHS sound, but curious if I went too far or I mixed too much up.

The song:

Maybe went a little too far with the extreme vaporwave-bass like you said.

I'm clearly hearing both sources being used.  The bassline from super metroid and the repetitive vamp from sonic 2, both slowed down quite a bit.  It's really cool how you've managed to make them work together.
Consider having some variations in your second repeat of the themes in the second half 2:09 and on.

With that said, the bass is absolutely huge and takes up a large part of the sonic space.  Please tame it and get it to sit in conjunction with the rest of the parts so they work together.  It could also use some clarity, some of the lower notes it plays get muddy.  Not sure if it's the samples or synth itself but i'm hearing a buzziness on the left side, and it honestly made me think something was wrong with my monitors XD.  If that's something you intended, try to make it sound more intentional and less subtle.  I do like the pads used in the background, they are very pleasant and sound very vaporwave as intended.

The arrangement itself is the strongest part of what's going on here.  Work on the production as noted and clean it up/refine it.  Cool track, definitely has some potential with some work!

I've reviewed your remix and have returned it to Work-in-Progress status, indicating that I think there are some things you still need to work on. After you work on your track and feel that it's ready for submission to OCR, please change the prefix back to Ready for Review and someone will review it again. Good luck!
