  1. I was wondering,

    was something like this done already?

    Super Sonic Racing would be a song that would sound brilliant IMO

    Though the recording on all of these really doesn't do the music justice. They really should release a studio orchestra version, because what you can hear sounds pretty cool. Even so, this rendition doesn't exactly sound intricately laid out like some of the better-sounding orchestra - basically, just the original songs played with real orchestra instruments, no cool little extra background effects actually using the instruments. Still sounds kinda neat though.

    EDIT: Download here. Also, this video doesn't start at the very beginning, but I found the quality to be possibly better (though the drums may be a bit overpowering). It also shows the big screen that played while the orchestra was going on. Maybe if I'm bored I'll do some "operation" on this thing in Audacity or something, not like I have anything better to do with my life.

    I was pissed that the Virgin MegaStore in Downtown Disney in Orlando, FL DIDN'T have the Video Games Live album! I think my boyfriend is getting it for me online for Christmas. I got even MORE pissed that they came to the Hard Rock Live at Universal a year ago.

    Won't lie, I've been chatting with folks in my college's band/orchestra for a while about doing some kind of Sonic 2 concert, I've been working on some pretty fine-tuned stuff. Orchestral Sonic music = ohhhhhh god yes.

    Almost forgot, most of Kanjika's tracks on Project Chaos (namely "The Secluded Stronghold" and "Breathtaking Vision") seem to capture the orchestra feel, if it's really worth mentioning. :\

    I once orchestrated HPZ but I forgot to add drums. I still think it sounds nice though.

    I used to have an MP3 recording of Video Games Live's Sonic 1 medley when they played here in 2006. I lost the MP3 though. It was on my old site for a while.

    I always wanted to hear high quality version of that orchestral sonic medley.
    Those strings are too silent :psyduck:

    I think I have that somewhere. Should I upload it or something?
     
  12. I would like to see the Sonic 2 Robotnik Theme be orchestrated. My MIDI skills are improving, but it still sounds pretty unfaithful.

    If I had access to an orchestra, I'd make them perform the Sonic 2 end theme for me. Add a choir and a seriously epic take on the final boss theme would be in order as well. But you know, since I'm absolutely fucking insane, I'd also request things like Rhythm and Balance (Sonic Adventure 2, White Jungle) done with tribal percussions, a string-quartet version of I Am (All of Me) and possibly even an orchestral Metallic Madness -- after all, what could generate a better Orchestra Hit than a bloody orchestra? :3

    You know, I've always wondered what Chemical Plant would sound like in an orchestral setting.

    I think the whole of S3&K would sound awesome in a similar rendition, also.

    Every song from Sonic 3 and knuckles? I'll be honest, and I'm sure many of you have done so aswell, but when I listened to project chaos, I only gave maybe no more 17 seconds worth of listening to half the tracks, and a couple I didn't even bother with at all, either because it sounded like other remixes of that same song, or 30 seconds if I could barely pick out the resemblance to the original song (Such as the final boss track on the Hedgehog Heaven album, Where I did not even know what I was listening to until I heard the "duun duna duun duun" somewhere midway into the song), or if it was just bad. I'm just saying, I find some of the songs on s3k a bit tedious just thinking about them :p

    What I would love to hear would be an orchestrated sonic 3 final Boss rendition..

    the strings and the play the first 8 seconds quietly, the woodwinds and a piano play the fluttery music at around 6 seconds, ending in the sound of a huge crash which fades out into the sound of bassoons, joing in with the strings, but keeping a consistant note until the end of the 4/4 signature, then quickly following the league of the strings to complete the measure nicely. And during the repeat, the fluttery music plays again, but with no crash at the end, instead, there's complete silence. Soundless silence lasts 4 seconds the sound of a mind-blowing impact of every instrement in the room, every precussional instrument, for just one moment, for just one note or beat, at the same time, just once, are played with all the force their players could muster before each and every section of the orchestra go playing their designated sound channel. Eh, it's kind of hard to type out what's exactly in my head, but yeah, I would definatly love to hear something like that.

    EPIC WINSAUCE. Lo-fi, but I never would have expected Sonic's Genesis tunes to translate that well to an orchestra. :D:D<3<3<3<3<3:p:p:P

    EDIT: I think there are studio versions of these, becasue I know I used to have an MP3 of the Mario segement in that link.
