    Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (55% complete)
    Yeah, it's been a while since I've been able to make any good updates, simply because there's so much time, and so little to do. I edited up the instrumental a little bit more, and sent it out to my guitarist, but I still have much to do with it. Yes, going back through and editing it does count for part of the editing process, but not as much as the vocals. It does however, take a lot of mathematics and counting. I'm not sure if this was the easiest way to approach this track, but I will find every detail and fix it all. I'm doing well with that so far. My guitarist still has a few things to take care of, so hopefully I'll hear more by the end of the month
    I have just today went out and recorded the second verse. This will be one of the parts that my guest singer will sing, This part has the original lyrics, but I decided to throw in a couple more of my own in there, maybe I have to change the lyrics a little bit before I send it out, but so far not bad. At least I've got the idea down. He's not ready yet either but the time draws near. I have to finish getting these lyrics edited, recorded, and sent out, real soon. But I'm not too worried, it's coming together quite nicely. Piece by piece

    Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (53% complete)
    I've finished laying out the instrumental! A few more tweaks here and there, getting the basics sorted out, and I'll be ready for my special guests (er, one of them, at least)! Then I'll have to go back and do a more thorough fix-up with the beat. Turns out it's just as I predicted, it'll be somewhere from 6:00 to 6:10 in length. I will know once everything is together. Piece by piece. I still need to record the rest of the vocals, and after that I'm very much free until I get their contributions. I do know that they've all been busy recently and I do hope they get some time to rest and recuperate after all they do. But still, the thrill of being able to work with such wonderful people has me feeling really good about this track. The guest reveal is close at hand! Stay tuned!

    I know it's been a while since I've made an update. Most of the work I've been doing has been adding more sounds and polishing up what I already have. I found a wah-wah bass like dubstep, and some bells for later on in the song. I look forward to getting the guitar track on this. I've got about a week and a half or so before my guitarist is ready, I have no doubt that I can at least send over a foundation for the whole track and then go back and fix everything up. That part is almost done. I'm on the final chorus now with the instrumental. I also finished writing the new lyrics and am ready to see what my singer thinks. I still have to go out and record the rest as well, as I only have the first verse of the vocals down at the moment. But things are heating up, that's for sure

    Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (41% complete)
    It's been a really slow process, but probably for the better because I need to time this just right for everyone involved. I've been spending a lot of the last few days just going through what I have so far and tweaking out the sounds, making everything smooth and unique. The guitar solo backdrop is finished, I'll shortly be able to analyze the rest of what I need for a more accurate reading. I've recorded the first verse of the vocals tonight as well. My new microphone sounds SO much better than what I was using. Editing this is gonna be just great. It'll be so much easier to place everything else I'm missing once I hear a guitar track. The last thing I want is to overpower the guitars and I'm being as careful as I can to leave room. But things are going so great right now. There's definitely no turning back, not like I'd need to

    Sorry I haven't been on much lately. I've been helping the music team of Sonic Legacy finish up music for the first episode. I must say, I feel really accomplished. I've got something special planned for everybody, for my 100th track. Stay tuned, I'm definitely taking a few days off before I start because I need a little break XD

    There’s a little bit of context to this one. This remix is actually TWO parts, and this particular submission is NOT the full remix. Sonic Legacy is currently trying to put together an animated series based off of the comic. This remix will be heard in the very first scene, of the very first episode, where we get an introduction to Sonic the Hedgehog, Tempest the Dolphin, and their first encounter together. This really is quite an honor to be kicking off the series! You can follow Sonic Legacy on Tapas (https://tapas.io/series/Sonic-Legacy) to read Issue 1 of the comic (https://tapas.io/episode/1191915), and check out their YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4NJ6kc_DLlLpXyiqVqZ1Jg) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/sonic_legacy) for updates on this particular animation!
    The first part of this remix was done using a technique musicians know as “Mickey-Mousing”, and it’s a technique that’s entirely new to me, but not unfamiliar. This is where one is provided either an animation or a voice-dub (in this case it was voices), and so we have to shape our music to fit emotions and action throughout the scene. Hyper Potions did this with Sonic Mania Adventures, and Tee Lopes did this with Team Sonic Racing Overdrive. You can hear this in many of your favorite cartoons and shows (a particular favorite of mine is Sean Callery who composed for TV shows like Bones and 24). I was also given a stipulation that the scene took place at a beach, so using instruments to represent such was crucial. I’ve added steel drums, Hawaiian guitar, brass instruments, and a fretless bass to help illustrate this. Due to spoiler alerts, and for contextual purposes, this part of the remix IS NOT in this submission. I will release the full version some time in the future, when episode 1 of Sonic Legacy has been released (I will title it as Legacy VIP). We’re all working very hard to take this into fruition, so please stay tuned! It won’t be too long
    This submission you are listening to now is the second part of the remix. After the Mickey-Mousing part was over and my submission was ready for Sonic Legacy, the result was not even two and a half minutes. I figured I still had plenty of time on it, and I had actually planned for this from the beginning, so I decided to add a full-on remix to follow it. The total result will be just under five and a half minutes. In this part I added a few things, my signature synth Sky Synth to accompany the Hawaiian guitar, modified marimbas to accompany the steel drums, and plenty more. The intensity in this part is practically double of the first part. Plus, of course, I like to jam out a little bit with a few solos and modifications of my own. Sonic Legacy will not be using the parts you are hearing, except for the intro. I decided to edit that in. Everything was particularly simple once it all got rolling.
    This whole project was definitely one of the most fun times I’ve ever had with a Sonic remix! I hope you all have just as much fun listening to it. And please, stay tuned! This isn’t over, not by a long shot! Make sure you subscribe/follow Sonic Legacy for updates as well as new issues! If you liked this, you’re really gonna love the full version! Feel free to leave an honest review! Thank you all for listening and for the continued support! It goes a really long way!

    Sonic Forces - Sunset Heights (97% complete)
    This is it! I'm finished making the piece, and I'm ready for the final editing process. I've already been partially editing as I've been going, so there shouldn't be much left to do. I was gonna seek external help from one of my Newgrounds buddies, Chronamut, before saying it's complete. It is unfortunate, that I can't post this up online when it's done. I have been instructed to wait until Episode 1 of the animated project is up. I honestly don't know when that will be at this time, but as a whole, everything has been coming together quite nicely, and everybody in the Sonic Legacy crew has been busting their humps trying to bring this to fruition. It's totally understandable they would ask me to wait for it to go public, it's more of a contextual piece anyway what with the shaping of it to the voice dub I was provided. So, I'll be finished within the next 48 hours, but don't expect this to go online just yet. I'm just glad my part is finally practically done. I've been working so hard on it, and I hope it goes over really well once the time comes.
    In the meantime, if you can find me on social media, I'd be glad to give you guys what I'm allowed to show you! STAY TUNED!!!

    Sonic Forces - Sunset Heights (84% complete)
    Huge progress, every session at this point it seems. I kinda knew things would be way easier once the initial portion was complete. Now that I have everything laid out, finishing this track is gonna be a snap! I would expect something this week! Threw in a couple more solos in there, I'm really digging the marimba/steel drum combination especially with the sequences I have going for it. I had to update what I sent out to the Legacy crew for the animated project, adjusted volumes and chords and all that. I'm pretty sure now that all pieces are in place, volume adjustment will need minimal if any editing left to do. The hardest and most tedious part of this whole thing now is the drums, and those are simple adjustments too. I just have to make sure that every transition is as unique as I can possibly make it, to keep the audience on their feet, expecting something different each time. I remember I used to struggle with repetitiveness but I think I've definitely ironed out that problem. I'm learning so much every time. This is just one reason why I love writing music so much. The experience. After that all I need is a feasible ending, and BOOM! Remix soon to be done!

    Sonic Forces - Sunset Heights (39% complete)
    Legacy portion is complete! I always like to take an extra 24 hours or so after I reach this point to listen to it a lot and make sure everything is set before I send it through. I'm fairly certain that once it's done, they'll upload a sample of it somewhere for you all to hear. I gotta say, this Mickey-Mousing thing was a really fun and interesting experience. It's actually a lot easier than it sounds as long as you hear enough of it in your head, as you go. I'm sure it's a skill that's REALLY gonna come in handy in the future, and I'm glad I got a chance to learn and experience it firsthand. But this is only the beginning! I have plans to really get epic with it. This percentage is still based on the six minute target, but I don't think I will need that much. Once I actually get closer to the completion of the full version, I'll be able to more accurately identify what exactly I need to finish. But for now, I've reached a powerful checkpoint! I'm excited to see what my Legacy colleagues think of it.
