At the time of working on the this game I had no idea the impact it would have and how much the form of synthesis I had to learn would affect my future.
Inside the Sega Genesis console (known in the UK as a Megadrive) is a Yamaha YM2612 is a six-channel FM synthesizer.
A very similar chip (YM2614) is inside Yamaha's DX100 and the FB01.
Sometimes you have no idea what you're doing is going to have a profound effect on your future self and this experienced massively impacted my knowledge of synthesis and sound design.
I spent a huge amount of time crafting the drums creating 909 style kicks and hats. It's why the drums on this game really kick.
