Greetings everyone, and welcome to a new version of SPEED UP >>>, my "play a track at 150% speed" series.
I mentioned a while ago that I would do an anime version of SPEED UP someday. Finding suitable anime tracks is a lot harder compared to video game soundtracks, however. They're faster in general, and the slower tracks are too calm and slow to be suitable. Not to mention that rarely is there a loopable track, and loops are better suited for 150% speed than others.
Chances are I won't be able to get 10+ tracks together, and even if I did, it'll take months. I know a plethora of video games, but not anime, so I have to search for good tracks the hard way.
Therefore, I decided to share two tracks with you, as a preview of sorts. I'd like to know if I'm going into the right direction with this.
As a reminder, SPEED UP tracks have the goal of sounding good when played with 50% faster speed than normal. People who are familiar with the original should be wowed by the faster track ideally, or at least feel intrigued by the new version. I also try to include tracks that are nice to listen to even if someone doesn't know the original track.
Without further ado, here are the two tracks I got so far:
Let me know what you think. Feel free to suggest other tracks as well.
