Music Development

N64

Phil said this about the music for Beetle Adventure Racing:

That music was done using a bass guitar, and an Emu sampler and a JP8000 back in the mid 90s. The loose inspiration for it was big beat stuff as that was what the video game designer asked for at the time. The stuff was done in Logic and then transferred to proprietary software that was provided by Electronic Arts.
