SNESQUE II concept album a Super Nintendo soundfonts sequel

Jerry on 2020-12-01
The "SNESQUE II" concept album by Zackery Wilson is the follow-up to 2014's original music compilation built from Super Nintendo soundfonts. Audio samples from 16-bit games provide the basis for each music track.

This time around, the source material includes Mario Paint, Donkey Kong Country and Earthworm Jim soundfonts, treated to contemporary audio production techniques. The twelve-track album, published December 4, is available for purchase through Bandcamp.

From the liner notes:
Zackery Wilson’s "SNESQUE II" is the follow-up/sequel to the 2014 album, once again uniting Super Nintendo soundfonts (collections of samples from original Super Nintendo video games) and modern-day audio production (e.g. EQ, delay, reverb, filters, etc.). "SNESQUE II" is an evolution of the first album’s sound, featuring a more thoroughly-produced, "next-gen" approach to composition and sound design, while maintaining the original formula.
