Knuckles' Chaotix Soundtrack
Knuckles' Chaotix was released in 1995 for the SEGA 32x(which is an add-on for the Mega Drive) and the soundtrack's composed by Mariko Nanba and Junko Shiratsu. It's a spin-off of the Sonic The Hedgehog series and the only one to feature the character Knuckles as the main protagonist. I was unaware of this game before it was requested. So I was curious to try it out and the design of the game is pretty much the same as one of the main Sonic games—collecting rings, jumping on baddies, bonus rounds ect—but the gameplay mechanics are different, you have another character attached to you by a set of rings and you control both of them at the same time to solve puzzles and complete the levels. It a pretty fun game and I can't believe I've never heard of it before.
And now to the music..
The default volume level of the tracks was a little on the low side. So I amplified them. I also equalized and looped them twice, with a fade-out on the third loop; for the very short tracks I looped them a couple of times to stretch out the length a bit. I kept the titles that are shown in the sound test from the options menu within the game and added in parenthesis the location or event that occurs when the particular track is played, to make them easier to identify and I placed the tracks in the order that they're heard in-game, starting with the "Overture" and finishing with the "Good and Bad Endings". It shouldn't be any surprise at this point to any of you but I didn't include the sound effects files. I did include the short fanfares such as "Got a Chaos Ring" and "Reach The Goal" and put them at the end of the soundtrack as we've been doing with most of our uploads.
The Knuckles' Chaotix Soundtrack is uploaded in both FLAC and MP3. Enjoy!
