2DBro's orgs:

That first one has a really cool "Galaxy" sort of feel to it. Sounds like something I'd have as music for a game when traveling through space or something. Sounds really cool. Starting at measure 8, it reminds me of 8-bit trip.

The second one I enjoyed a little bit less, but it's still good. It's interesting how it starts off with that really solemn tone, hints at getting more upbeat, but mostly stays steady with its slow pace.


Raymundo, I've never played Guxt, but it sounds pretty good. The instruments and drums feel pretty natural.

It's a difficult game lmfao.
The game instrumentation is very minimal (like 4 tracks) so i tried to interpret(? the drums (they were just some kind of hi-hat noise in the og version)

Planning on doing the rest of the soundtrack.

This one sounds good too. I listened to the original, and at an ear-glance, this sounds pretty similar.

I wasn't able to find any equivalent of that, so I'm guessing that's an original composition.

Sounds nice. At the beginning it almost sounds like some Scottish song played with bagpipes. Then over time it has more of a mystic, futuristic feel to it that would be pretty fitting for a main menu or lounge area in a game. Interesting how it kind of varies things up later on in the song.

Ooo! Ooo! I'm an Organyam'n! I made org music sometimes!

I made a Marble Zone one...


...a Green Hill Zone one...


...Sky Sanctuary Zone, because I heard it in a Cave Story Beta related dream...



...Deep Sea Zone Act 1 from Sonic Robo Blast 2...



...and Jump and Die from Will You Snail?



I'm most proud of the DSZ1 one, to be honest. Though Marble Zone is a close second. Let me know if any of them sound nice to you, or if any need adjustments.

Listening to these, I realize its been quite a long time since I've listened to anything sonic related (and Will You Snail? is completely new to me).

I think they're all solid. They might not have the same feel as the originals (they feel lighter and brighter), but I like these variations.
I think Deep Sea Zone is the best of the bunch, and Marble Zone's good too, though I think the melody muffles a bit at points (might just be from my end). Still, Good job. Eager to hear more from you.

Most of those sound pretty good.

The Green Hill Zone one didn't quite land right for me. Almost the whole song felt very vibrant, but the most important instrument track with the main melody just kinda fell flat. Some of the more minor instrument tracks also seemed to be coming off a bit too strong. I feel like the Sky Sanctuary remix has this problem too, but not as badly.

I really like the Deep Sea Zone remix.

Spring Yard is okay, but something about one of the main instrument tracks feels a little bit off, kind of flat. There's a certain ring and energy that I feel in the original that I'm not quite feeling in your remix. Still, not a bad transcription.

I feel like the instruments in Labyrinth Zone don't blend together very well. I'd suggest playing around with the volume and instrument choice for some of those tracks a bit. With a bit more care and trial-and-error put into the instrument choice, I feel like this transcription could be pretty enjoyable to listen to.

I'm not familiar with the 8-Bit Labyrinth Zone, but it sounds fine.

Never heard of that game, but just clicked on it, and listened to the main theme, then listened to your ORG. Nice remix, it has a nice rich reverb in the main tune, and overall seems to capture the spirit of the original.

Thanks, it was pretty easy to transcribe it due to the original only having 4! audio channels!

To be honest, that transcription feels kind of flat. The opening isn't nearly as strong in that ORG as the original, and the instrument you've used as a pipe organ just doesn't sound as vibrant as the original, which kind of sets the tone for the whole song. Some of that may be hard to capture with ORGMaker, but I would suggest playing around with the instruments a bit more to try to capture that spirit of grandeur that's given during the opening of the song.

Oh, I swear I forgot to get rid of the intro- was planning to just get rid of it since I couldn't keep the full tone. Yeah, that intro pipe organ + bell sequence I toyed around for a bit with a couple different combinations before just going back to something safe, sadly the whole thing turned out to be subpar I guess :S
Been outta groove for a while so I guess that's to be expected- I'll see about playing around with other instrument replications- notably guitars also also give me trouble,

Gradius - Beginning of the History: Not a bad remix, but track 1 is a bit more sharp than it needs to be. I'd suggest making it have less of a "ringing" sound.

JJBA staff roll: Similar complaint as previous song, but a bit worse in this case. It seems that several tracks are too loud, which makes the song a bit irritating, not soft enough to capture the feeling of the original, and it makes the different instrument tracks not blend together very well.

Salamander Unused 1: I liked the sound of this one, the only problem I had was that, similar to before, track 4 was too loud, which made it sound a bit jarring. Ideally, you want a track to naturally stand out by sounding distinctive with its own melody and having the right instrument choice that makes it really stand out from the other tracks. Making it significantly louder isn't the best approach and comes across as desperate.

Nazo no Kabe block kuzushi Password: The transcription of the notes and the instrument choice was solid. The only problem I had with it was, again, the notes were too loud. It's supposed to have a soft tone like the original, but making all the tracks so loud makes the whole song come off too strong and makes it fail to capture the calm and tranquil feeling of the original.

It's time for another one of DG's patented Sonic 1 Organya remakes.
Today, it's Star Light Zone.
