How did I miss this thread! Epic work my man, thanks for all of these Really looking forward to Lotus 2 - it was the first thing I ever saw on an Amiga at my uncles (through a really nice separates system) and remains one of my favourite game soundtracks

Hope this is the right place to post these.

I saw/heard the first one on Reddit a couple of days ago, thought it was amazing, then found he does loads of these on his Youtube channel.
Plenty of other games on other systems also covered including some (IMO) sweet Outrun tunes.

Hope some of you on here might get some enjoyment out of these.

Magnificent! But honestly, does the snare drum sound really come from drumming on the banjo head?

yes it does. But I patch the mic into a couple of pedals, guitar overdrive (to add the white noise normally created by the mesh on a drum kit) and heavy dynamic EQ to control the sound ... then it goes through the software EQ and Mastering

Wow, impressive! It sounds very much like an 80s drum computer!

EDIT: I particularly like the use of the guitar distortion. With my Les Paul and my whawha I found that if I put the tone knob on the guitar to 0 and the whawha in the steepest position, there would be some sine wave oscillation. This was, of course, rather annoying but the cool thing about it was that with the guitar amp set to a distorting setting the sine wave would become distorted and sound exactly like a harmonica. With the whawha I could change the pitch of the oscillation a little and this was quite a funny effect, I could almost play a very rudimental harmonica solo with the whawha...

very cool. yeah I've seem people get almost harmonica sounds out of their electric guitar.
I experiment a lot with stuff on the channel, thread rods on the strings, massage bug toys to get some weird sounds, bows... jump in to 1m.25s in the video:

On my cover of the Turrican 1 intro I used an ebow batch through a fuzz pedal to get some cool cpu like string sounds

Awesome work! I recently subscribed to your channel. Thanks for covering some Ys tunes. I absolutely love the Ys I & II soundtrack. PCE/Turbo CD is the best.
