|Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2 8-Bit OST|
"If you're wondering why it does not sound as "8-bit" as say, a game like Megaman 2, it is because I used the Konami VRC6 expansion chip when creating this album. What this does is allow for a few extra sound channels to be utilized, enabling me to use those sound channels for added harmony and fullness.
In short, the expansion allowed me to create a better listening experience that can still be played on an actual NES with the right equipment. "
Personally, the inclusion of the VRC6 chip doesn't bother me one bit. The music still sounds fantastic. With the Sonic Spinball NES Arrange OST, Daniel took a different approach.
"Once again, it's time for another Sonic 8-bit album! This time, it's Sonic Spinball, in glorious 2a03-alone NES 8-bit! That's right! No "cheating" expansion chips or Sawtooth bass enhancement, it's nothing but pure NES! About 40 hours of work went into this project, and I am very pleased with the way it turned out."
