In fact, the samples almost all come from the Power Rangers games. (So you guessed right with Zen Nihon Pro Wrestling) I only noticed that because I made a few Power Rangers ports myself. Search for the SNES Power Rangers Opening Theme (Go Go Power Rangers). Toby Fox has even taken over the drums 1:1
Ah shit, that makes sense as well, good catch lmao; for some reason I forgot the first SNES Power Rangers game had different samples in comparison to the other games on the SNES since that one was handled by a different set of composers (Kinuyo Yamashita and Iku Mizutani IIRC), and they just so happen to also have composed for Zen Nihon Pro Wrestling so I guess I wasn't too far off with that guess there haha
@Segment1Zone2: I even wanted to adjust the cymbals that way, I just forgot, lol. Fixed it.
Yeah the echo gave me the most problems. The lead guitar has the most prominent and strongest echo in the original. If I just apply the same echo to all channels, either the lead guitar echo is too weak or the rest of the song has way too much echo which sounds really weird. The best solution would be to create an extra "echo" channel just for the lead guitar, but unfortunately I don't have any more free channels for that. Feel free to contact me if anyone thinks they have good echo settings for the song.

damn, Toby really did pull up the fuckin' Zen Nihon Pro Wrestling samples outta nowhere for this didn't he LOL; also love how the title is literally the exact same as a certain Live A Live track as well (also related to wrestling too, at least in where it plays), like god damn, at least that one makes some sense if you know Toby enough, but still, was not expecting this at all
(I hate that I'm getting spoiled so damn hard and I still haven't gotten to playing the second chapter yet btw )
EDIT: Oh wait, the samples might be from TMNT: Tournament Fighters actually, the guitars and snare sound a bit more like that game at least; still tho, quite a deep cut there huh
This is a pretty good attempt, but I have some remarks.
- The echo should be across all channels, making it only on the strings and leads makes the song sound a bit empty.
- It's not that the crash cymbal is quiet or anything, but it's not really "powerful" enough, it doesn't linger as long as it should. (Edit: It actually oscillates between loud and quiet for most of the song, which doesn't in your port).
- Same goes for the snare, it feels kind of stock and doesn't have the same punch as the originals.
The guitar is really well done, though, it doesn't feel the same as the original I think due to the missing echo. Overall pretty good job but I think it could be much better with a little bit of extra polish.
