  1. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (48% complete)

    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

  3. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (44% complete)

    Instrumental is almost finished and I was able to analyze the rest of the track for a more accurate reading. It actually isn't a big change, as I'll be only seconds more than my target six minutes. I am still gonna have to go back through when I'm done and put in more things and tighten up the sound, part of the editing process. I seem to be on the last chorus, the very beginning of the last part. I've only got like one minute of instrumental left to place. Still a lot of voice recording to do, I'll find the time for that coming up. This is pretty high priority for me so of course it won't be long. I still have a few weeks before everyone is ready, so I'm not too worried either. I'm using a lot of emotion when it comes to this track, I have to admit I'm overwhelmed with them. I'm really just happy things are coming together. And I can't wait to show you all what's going on. Soon enough

  4. 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

  5. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (37% complete)

    Can't believe I'm only 3 more % than last time. This thing is so complex! I love it though. I've already nearly completed the backdrop for the guitar solo. I'll soon be able to analyze more accurately just how much more I'll need for the song. I still feel like this will be well beyond my six minute target. I'd finished adding all the sound effects I need. Until the very end at least, if I decide to but more there. I still have the thunder cued up to go wherever. I still feel like something else is missing, and I'm still putting a few pieces together. But for the most part, I feel like it's coming together quite nicely (yet not enough). Still haven't finished the additional lyrics, or recorded anything, but it's a process. All in due time friends. Much like my special announcements

  6. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (34% complete)

    Lot of progress made today! I went through and edited some stuff in the intro, shortened it out since it was too long, found the other sound effect and placed it, so THAT'S done now. Still haven't finished writing the new lyrics yet but I'm awfully close, and I've changed a few to make more sense too. It's a process. As far as the instrumentals, I've completed the backdrop for the second verse and I'm ready to start a little bridge to the guitar solo, build it up a little bit, and possibly throw in another certain signature sound effect, if my guitarist wants to use it. I should ask. (there's a hidden hint in there #FollowTheClues).

    I do feel like I'm missing something that belongs throughout the piece, this just feels too simple. I'm sure I'll find it soon, and hopefully it'll help when I get the guitars actually in there. It's one of those that will take deep though and repetitive listening for sure. It's one of the annoying parts of writing music, but it's for the best. It's really cool seeing everything come together though, little by little.

  7. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (27% complete)

    Halfway through the second verse of the instrumental, most sound effects found, extra lyrics almost added. That's definitely an extreme challenge because I really want to stay on topic with the original. There are only so many different word combinations that sound good together. But I'm almost there. I may have to re-analyze this completion measurement soon, as I am starting to expect WELL beyond my target six minutes. I'm already 3:00 in and only halfway through the second verse. Not sure how long it's gonna be but at this point I'm thinking 7, maybe closer to 8. I'm not quite at a spot where I can accurately analyze it just yet. Plans changing on the go and what not. Either way, I'm definitely having a blast making this. I'm testing a few things out and trying to avoid too much repetitiveness. Throwing in my own things. It's so much fun. And everyone's been so supportive. I'm so excited about this

  8. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (22% complete)

    Been slowing down a little bit, my special guests are willing and can make the time for it, but I have to time this just right. It's gonna be a big project. I'm already finished with the backdrop to the first verse, and I've got most of the additional lyrics written out. I'm only missing one or two lines. I've already synthesized the intro guitar sequence from the start and added a little more to fill it out, but it sounds so good in other parts of the song, so I've got it playing throughout most of the loops. This upcoming part should be a little simpler now that I basically have the foundation for the entire rest of the song down. Easy Street!

  9. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (18% complete)

    The epic news just keeps rolling in but I still can't give anything away just yet! I've got a huge surprise for everyone in the entire Sonic fandom on this one and I'm getting really excited to finish this one. I've spent a good portion of these last few days just going back through and touching up most of what I already have to prepare for the rest of the piece. Adding effects, making it sound unique, that sort of thing. I remember having a different kind of sound in one of my previous pieces and I'm looking to make it sound a little more professional, so to say, by adding phasing and reverb. I still need to play around with it a little more because it's starting to sound like an instrument that they used in Shadow The Hedgehog's game. And of course, trying to leave room for guitars and whatever else I can squeeze in. 

    I may not be able to reveal any of my secrets just yet, but just know that the pressure is definitely on and that this could possibly be the biggest step towards accomplishing any of my dreams, that I have ever taken. I'm more than excited!

      Your excitement is infectious! Can't wait to see what you got going, man...especially if it involves, say, working with Johnny Gioeli or some influential Sonic musician (just a guess).

      I appreciate those words. The beautiful thing about this world is that anything can happen. I can't exactly get into who or what just yet . . . and maybe there's more than one, so "whom" or what . . . I have planned at this time. But I am definitely taking a lot of time on this one just to make sure it's the absolute best I can do. The editing is the part that's gonna be the toughest. Maybe. This IS a full lyrical after all

  10. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (13% complete)

    A great portion of the last day or so has been simply sound searching. I've still got a few adjustments to make here and there but I would like to hear if I can find a guitarist before I make too many more adjustments. I've finally passed the intro and I'm on the very beginning of the lyrical backdrop. It's a very slow process, but soon enough I'll be to a point where I can just adjust everything at once and keep the ball rolling. It'll be much easier once all the pieces are in place. I've still gotta play with a couple settings with the bass I'm working on, like before the lyrics start I want to bend it, just the way the guitar is bent in the original before the first lyrics. All it takes is math to make that happen, and that's quite the strongpoint of mine. Keepin' this gravy train rollin'!

  11. Sonic Adventure - Open Your Heart (10% complete)

    I found a thunderstorm sound effect online that I'll be using in the beginning, accompanied with one other eerie sound that I still have yet to find. I've also obtained all the original lyrics. I'm DEFINITELY going to be adding to it for this track, even things out a little more. As far as the beat itself. I've got most of the intro complete and have the foundation for the pre-takeoff laid out. What I usually do at this stage is sound hunting. Exploring all software I have and making adjustments to modify or create sounds that I deem necessary to the piece. It's one of the hardest things about songwriting because whatever I choose is gonna be playing all throughout the six or so minutes of the song. I still have yet to confirm a guitarist. I've got a few options before me, and I'm asking around all I can.

    Someone is waiting for me to get to a certain ready-point in this song. I can't let them down at any cost. I'm giving it my all

    Starting my 100th music project spectacular! I've already been doing some work getting things together. I've got a few secrets, and things I'm gonna reveal later on as production gets closer and closer, but just know that I've got some HUGE plans for this. I had my fans and friends vote on Twitter the other day which song I should remix next, I'm sure you all remember that post. The results are below. I've got a lot of great ideas with this already, but I really have to make this one count! I'm trying my best to put things together anyway, and so far so good This could very well be one of my most defining remixes I'll have produced to this date! I've never actually been nervous to create like this before. I did say I wanted my 100th spot to be a banger, so without further ado, it's time to start this one! WIsh me luck!

      Call me crazy, but if there's a song I'd like to see remixed it would be Fakery Way as a full on song that actually sounds like it could be used for a Sonic stage instead of just a creepy house of mirrors. But my ideas aside, I'd say why not try for a Blue Spheres/Speed Highway mash up? It'd be a heck of a challenge of your abilities, and you get to both songs you want to at once.

      PaulyBFromDa303

      That's using the ol' noggin. I've been suggested a mixup a few times now. It does seem like a feasible challenge, and if have to find new plans. Apparently Open Your Heart is way in they lead right now. Besides, I'll get to all three eventually I'm certain.

      Well as long as you have fun and are able to your heart into I'm sure it'll turn out great. Either way, hope it turns out to be a fun one no matter how it goes.

  14. Hi guys! Stopping by to announce that issue 4 of Sonic Legacy is now out and about and ready for reading! Our art team has been really crunching their time and working hard, it makes me so proud to be a part of this group. I definitely look forward to working on the animation for this, because my Eggman theme will be used plenty XD there's some key points in this issue as well. Check it out!

     

  15. 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

    1. tailsBOOM!

  17. Howdy y'all!

    Just wanted to stop by and show you guys this. Sonic Legacy just released the theme song for the series, "Our Legacy", which I and a few others of the Sonic Legacy family worked on together. It's quite an honor to be a part of this, and we worked so hard for so long on it. We hope you all like it. You'll hear it in the openings of our future animations

     

  18. Howdy-ho everyone! Just stopping by to show you this one, our music team just released "Our Legacy", the main theme song for the Sonic Legacy series! You'll hear this in all our future animations that are coming your way. It was a real honor to work on this with the Sonic Legacy family, and I hope you all like it as well! I also want to extend a thanks to @SonicWindAttack for keeping our SSMB peeps updated on the series and for creating this topic. I'm sure the entire team would be so grateful, I know I am. Thank you isn't exactly enough, so if there's anything you need just let me know
  19. Proud to announce my newest remix Sonic Mania - Destiny Or Fate (Mirage Saloon) has placed 5th for the week on Newgrounds and is now being featured on the front page! Big thanks to everyone for the continuous support! The love I get from all of you us unlike anything I'd ever seen!
  20. It's been a few days since I've actually had the chance to post here

    Just want to extend a thanks to @Sonic Fan J, @tailsBOOM! and @TheOcelot for the birthday wishes. Really meant a lot! Honestly I love being in my 30's, way more than my 20's. A lot more freedom, and a lot more experience to make one a little wiser. 30 treated me very well, here's to hoping 31 is much better!

    1. Sonic Fan J

[99] Sonic Mania - Destiny Or Fate (Mirage Saloon) https://soundcloud.com/paulybfromda303/sonic-mania-destiny-or-fate-mirage-saloon Track 099 // Length: 5:49 // Style: Drum ‘n Bass // Speed: 185 BPM // Measures: 258 // Loops: 31 // Clips: 6 // Time Taken: 23 days https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/875023 Original composition: Tee Lopes Lyrics written/performed: Pauly B Sonic The Hedgehog ™ is property of SEGA Enterprises This remix was a request made for another fan project, with the only stipulation being that it had to sound western. So, I decided to make it a fusion with Drum ‘n Bass! I always love the challenge of creating themes with music, it works the brain a little, makes you think of which instruments to use to emulate an environment, and which instruments go together. In this case, I would use trumpets, harmonicas, acoustic guitars, and pianos, some of which enhanced with other synths for a more prominent sound. Also played around with bending and vibrato for a more unique sound. Tee Lopes did such a great job with the original. Very jazzy, very fancy. Just my style. I had a jazz background growing up, playing piano all through high school. It was really cool to be able to utilize all that knowledge I’ve accumulated throughout my life into this one particular remix. Sometimes it took a lot of thought in order to be unique and yet stay based to the original at the same time. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to improvise in situations like that because sometimes the end result ends up being better than once imagined. Lot of unusual chords that I don’t often get a chance to use. It’s always easier if you plan it ahead of time. It was actually real easy to get together once things started flowing. I hope you guys enjoy this track as much as I enjoyed making it, I had a blast with this! All honest comments are greatly appreciated! Thank you all for peeping this remix!

    I've been at it for the past ten hours but it's all done, edited, and ready to go! It will be up tomorrow morning! I've noticed that because I've been learning so much about editing in recent times, it's becoming a lot easier with experience. It really didn't take that much this time, and it sounds almost as amazing as my Eggman theme for Sonic Legacy. I tried to blend everything together just right, and I've taken extra time to change the little things that my ears happen to pick up. I've still got the whole night to make certain. Be ready tomorrow morning guys! I hope you all love it as much as I loved making it

    Instrumentals have been finished and edited! There may be a little more to do and I'm gonna take some more time to really go through and make sure I haven't missed anything. All that remains now is the vocal editing. I've only got 4 clips to edit, and only like 40 seconds total of material to edit, there's only 12 lines of lyrics. I'm getting really excited for this one, I've got a few eyes and ears tuned in, and these are eyes and ears I actually really want. The pressure is on, but I'm not nervous at all. I'm just putting down what's in my heart, and that's all that matters. Fingers crossed it goes over well. I have no regrets. This will indeed be a big moment

    All that's left is an ending. This is the part I haven't had planned entirely yet, but one of those where I'll get through it before I know what's next/last. I'm saying last now because it's the final 16 measures or so. I've created a solo with the electric pianos but I may need some more adjusting before it's all over. I've been utilizing my jazz skills I've been using since childhood. I went out earlier today to shoot some more retakes with the vocals, since I wasn't entirely satisfied with what I had before. It'll all come to me soon enough, that's for sure! I'm actually looking forward to the editing phase of this song. Stay tuned! It's almost there!
