Sonic Sound Test Wiki

This is a list of Sonic the Hedgehog series music.

Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)

Sonic the Hedgehog uses the on-board Zilog Z80 and Yamaha YM2612 synthesizer sound chip to produce a variety of stereo sound effects and music. The game has been praised for its dynamic music, composed by Masato Nakamura, a member of the popular J-Pop band, Dreams Come True.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

From the Sonic 2 options screen, the player can access a sound test that allows them to listen to any music or sound effects from the game. Among these is a music track, Track 10, that is not used in-game. It was generally assumed that this piece of music was for a level deleted from the final game, an assumption that is supported by using Game Genie to access the remnants of the incomplete Hidden Palace Zone.

Sonic 3

According to STI director Roger Hector, Michael Jackson was brought in initially during development to compose music for the game. However, due to the scandals that arose around Jackson at the time, his involvement was removed from the title, and much reworking had to be done.[1] These claims are dubious, however, and various interviews have made it clear that any involvement Jackson may have had was done without the knowledge of Sega's executives or marketing staff, and no contracts or formal agreements had ever been made.[2] James Hansen, of Sonic Stuff Research Group, retorts that Cirocco (credited as "Scirocco" in Sonic 3) still has possession of presumably a demo version of fabled soundtrack. "I actually have "ALL" of the tracks...," he writes, "from the original humming of Michael calling in the middle of the night leaving messages, to his ideas at Record One with Matt and Bruce. - BUT, I don't think I can let any of that out to the public without permission." [2]
