Metroid - Kraid's Lair (Analog Synth remake)

Luminist posted this incredible remake of the original Metroid soundtrack using an MS-20 Mini. It is both haunting and beautiful. I loved the reverb on this. I asked him about some of the effects used, and he mentioned Valhalla Vintage Verb.

Video Description:

I wanted to find out what the original NES Metroid soundtrack would be like if it was remade with REAL synths, 80s style.

All sounds were generated with a Korg MS20 Mini, then processed with some juicy studio effects to make things more atmospheric.

I also filmed myself playing the Kraid's Lair area of the game (y'know, because authenticity?). Died a lot of times. Sooooo many times. Excuse my terrible playing and just enjoy the music ok!

~I might do some more of these if people like it.. hint hint~

Original composition by Hirokazu Tanaka - any credit goes to him for writing such an immersive soundtrack in the first place!!
