I've contributed two covers of the SNES game soundtrack (World 2 - MadKat Land and World 4 - The Metallikats)... and I think that's it for 2018.
That's awesome, Mr. Goodkat. How did you land those gigs?

Hey Vailen,
sorry for taking so long to reply.

I assume the intention of your question was that you would like to know how I created them. In short, I've:
  • converted the spc-files (the sound format used by the SNES) into MIDI-files.
  • imported those MIDI-files into my music software (Native Instruments Maschine 2).
  • rearranged everything into scenes and patterns (the way a track is arranged in Maschine).
  • picked suitable sound samples or software synthesizers, adjusted octaves and made some futher adjustments which (hopefully) improved the track.
