SRB2 8-Bit Soundtrack v1.1 Details »»
SRB2 8-Bit Soundtrack v1.1
Version: 1.1, by cookiefonster (Wiki Admin) cookiefonster is offline
Developer Last Online: Sep 2020

Version: SRB2 Rating: (3 votes - 4.20 average)
Released: 08-05-2020 Last Update: Never Favourites: 6
Re-Useable Content Is in Beta Stage

For the past few months, I've been working on making 8-bit covers of SRB2's main campaign soundtrack and posting them to YouTube. Alongside those covers, I've been working on a WAD file so you can hear these covers in-game! All the covers were made in Famitracker with the VRC6 expansion soundchip, making them accurate to an NES soundchip extended with two additional pulse channels and a sawtooth channel. I transcribed almost every song entirely by ear, except for a few that had tempo changes, where I partly used the MIDIs for reference.

You can hear all the covers on this YouTube playlist, or check out a few examples:

Greenflower Zone Act 1 / Act Clear / Cavern Fortress Zone / Vs. Metal Sonic

The music is available both in OGG and NSF format! OGG is if you have digital music enabled, and NSF is if you have digital music disabled but MIDI music enabled. NSF files are very small (even smaller than MIDIs), but I don't recommend you use NSF files with this mod unless your computer is too slow to handle streamed audio. This is because with NSF files, the music restarts after being interrupted, and there is an annoying bug in Famitracker's NSF exporting that causes notes in the sawtooth channel to sometimes linger.

This mod isn't complete yet! Although I have covered every song you'll hear in-game up to Black Core Zone Act 2 (except the Super Sonic music), there are a few main campaign songs I haven't covered yet, plus a lot of songs outside the main campaign that I would like to cover in the future. I worked hard on these covers and I hope you enjoy this mod!

I couldn't resist doing a campaign run before releasing this. These are such lovely covers! Some of my favorites include Deep Sea 2, Castle Eggman 2, and the invincibility/speed shoes jingles.

Welcome to releases!

my.namejeff.com may be named after a meme, but it is actually a very fast and easy-to-use file hosting website that cuts out all the usual nonsense and just lets you quickly upload whatever file you want.

While I appreciate that "8-bits soundtrack" I kinda expected to hear Master System/Game Gear soundchip music instead of the famicom.

While I absolutely love the work put into this, I have to wonder how it would sound if you tried to go without the expansion chip... or even the triangle channel. Essentially, a vanilla NES cart, and then something for the Gameboy.

I mean, the Gameboy could technically have expansion chips, but... nevermind, I'm going off topic. I absolutely love the work you put into this.

I've considered trying out SRB2 covers without the expansion chip! Because of the sound limitations of a plain NES chip and the complexity of SRB2's songs, it sounds like quite a tall order to do pure 2A03 covers compared to what I'm currently doing.
