TMNT III, The Manhattan Project for NES: Soundtrack S-T-E-R-E-O Edition

Since the Turtles have been such a big part of my life, I had wanted to do something for their 25th Anniversary back in 2009. What that turned out to be is the remaster of their classic game soundtracks, but in a way you've never heard them before.

For most of us, the audio from the NES was in mono. However, in many games, like TMNT, there were actually 5 different channels for audio, each with it's own unique sound. Unfortunately, it was impossible to hear what the tracks sounded like, until now.

Thanks to modern technology, I have been able to extract these 5 channels, and arrange them for a stunning new audio experience. The 5 channels consist of the following:

1- Main Left
2- Main Right
3- Bass
4- Drum Brush or Rustle (Can’t think of the exact musical term)
5- Drums

To create the stereo image, the channels are placed as the following: -80 (1) -60 (3&4) +60 (5) +80 (2). Think of -100 as full left and +100 as full right. The goal was to create an even listening experience across both ears, so one side wouldn’t have all the music while the other had nothing playing. Channels 1 and 2 often ‘harmonized’ with each so that’s why they were spaced most apart.

The tracklist is as follows:
01 - Title 0:17
02 - Character Select 0:56
03 - Intro Pt 1 0:52
04 - Intro Pt 2 0:29
05 - Beach 2:15
06 - Boss 1:50
07 - Level Transition 1 0:05
08 - Surfin Sub 1:56
09 - Level Transition 2 0:05
10 - Bridge 2:15
11 - Level Transition 0:09
12 - City 2:30
13 - Level Transition 0:06
14 - Sewer 2:42
15 - MiniBoss 1:19
16 - Level Transition 0:07
17 - Technodrome 2:16
18 - Shredder 1:07
19 - Shredder Gets Away 0:07
20 - Elevator 1:50
21 - Rooftop 1:54
22 - Technodrome 2 2:21
23 - Krang 2:02
24 - Super Shredder 2:18
25 - Congratulations 0:18
26 - Ending Pt 1 1:09
27 - Ending Pt 2 0:59
28 - Game Over 0:06

Comments and feedback are very welcome. This took me a long time to finish, so I’m interested in seeing what everyone thinks. I’m hoping that Krang even might consider hosting a package on the Technodrome website.
