I am simply learning how to make Genesis music, by trying out DefleMask tracker and listening to VGMs from Genesis games. I also rip some instruments from classic game music to study them and see how they are made.
Anyway, I really like the electric guitar sounds in some of the Thunder Force IV (a.k.a. Lightening Strike) music. I decided to experiment with an electric guitar sound from the Thunder Force IV Boss 2 music ("Attack Sharply").
When playing the game's VGM file for that track, the electric guitar sounds very "big" and fat. However, when I use that sound in a VGM that I create, it sounds thin and weak. I assume there is some sort of effect or part of the instrument which affects that, but I currently don't know what it is. Both VGM files (Thunder Force IV and the one I made) have the same instrument, yet it sounds more powerful in the Thunder Force VGM.
As an example, here is a little VGM test I did; the guitar sounds pretty narrow/stuck too much in the center: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zomh1thlb9ktk t.vgm?dl=0
And here is what the Thunder Force VGM music sounds like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1JGsULXDSk
So, how do I use DefleMask to make Genesis VGM instruments that sound big and wide like in the Thunder Force music?
