I wanted to port a bunch of songs I liked* with an emphasis on accuracy and, in some cases, to closely mimic the original as best as possible with the given samples, so I ported a bunch of songs I liked with an emphasis on accuracy and, in some cases, to closely mimic the original as best as possible with the given samples.
Fun fact, out of all of these, the oldest port is Port Town, which I started in like, 2015 as one of the last ports from MIDI that I've ever done.
The first four in the list have been released into the wild. I'll submit the rest of these over the course of the next few days, but for now you'll have to experience them through the site spc player. Or your own, if you're into that. Either way, I hope you enjoy my ports. If you don't, that's fine too.
And two Sonic 2 songs is totally proof that I haven't abandoned that project yet, I just got bored of working on it for a while. Yay!
I've heard these all a billion times in our continuous feedback exchange, but I absolutely love the Sonic ones! Casino Night 2P and Collision Chaos in particular are funkey and nice. The latter's instrumentation in particular is also really impressive given all the random background sounds the original has, which you recreated. Final Zone sounds really crisp and close to the original.
As for the songs with which I'm not as familiar with, I really love Awakening, you pulled off the instrumentation superbly.
Another nice round of high quality hazel ports. The Streets of Rage and the Sonic CD ones gotta be my favourites. Of course the others are really nice too, but I think you really hit it out of the park with these 2 in particular!
You never cease to amaze me with the Streets of Rage ports, and the rest of these are pretty incredible too! I remember you sharing some of these with me in DMs and its nice to see them get released. Good work Hazel
Sonic is sh!t but your ports of these games are still so well made. Though personally I prefer your other ports way more. "Slow Moon" and "Port Town" are my favorites I think, though I definitely dig that you were doing 2 FF6 ports too. Gau is such an underrated character and has such a sweet and relaxing theme
