Another NES to C64 "conversion" I made back in February, except it relies on arpeggios.

So, this is my PCE cover of Type II from Thunder Blade again. It's the same as before, except I replaced Michirin's Kick, Snare, and Hat instruments with my own versions (no sampled instruments, by the way). The previous version using Michirin's percussion is available in a previous post on this thread.

I've made a SEGA Genesis remix of plural Super Metroid musics here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2WOFjX_dipQ&t=130s. I tried to make the most realistic instrumentation as possible constrary like a lots of SEGA Genesis remixes wich use more synth intruments. I realy fucking need your opinion because I've got practicaly no coments on my channel.  ;)

I'm not sure to do the rest of the soundtrack

I've covered this beautiful song from Ys 1 which unfortunately went unused until the later remakes...
I hope you like it ^^

Thanks :)

I suppose there's room for improvement in the intro, had to try and compensate for stuff going a bit out of tune for no reason.

The other day, I tried to improve upon my Genesis cover of the ruins theme from Undertale. For comparison, here is version 1.

"Michirin doing a Master System cover?! What gives?!?!" Yeah I really don't do these often, but for once I thought this song would sound good enough with just 3 square waves...

This is Gohan's theme from DBZ Super Butouden 2, I LOVE this song, it's beautiful and I've been wanting to cover it forever! But I was just never able to wrap my head around it, so I took the easy route and based this cover on SpoonyBard's Genesis version... However, as you can probably see, I didn't simply copy his version and pasted onto the SMS, I reckon that would have been a little shameless, so I instead adapted what he did in a way which I felt more comfortable with, which I thought would sound as good as I could make it on the SMS, and which would minimise loss of musical detail from sound-clipping if it was actually put in an SMS game (so long as the sound effects played on channels 2 or 4)

A PC engine version is soon to come!

It's done! PC engine version added. I hope you like it ^^

A version of my PCE cover of Sonic 2 - Chemical Plant Zone with non-sampled percussion (I think I'm getting used to making PCE song without using any samples now). For the version with sampled percussion, you can click this sentence.

Have you ever heard a Game Boy song and thought: "This belongs on the PC engine"?
To me, this is one of them, so I did the sensible thing and covered it on the PCE ;3

I normally cover songs from systems that have more channels than the PCE, so I'm always juggling what to keep in and what to leave out, even if I often manage to keep everything in and even leave room for delay/reverb, but since this time I've covered a song from a system with less channels than the PCE I was able to not just keep everything in, but also take a few creative liberties and add some stuff in, like for example, power-chording the sawtooth leads and having detuned reverb throughout the entire track!

I hope you like it ^^
