Sonic 3 Ice Cap Zone Sega Master System FM Remix

A Christmas remix of Ice Cap Zone from Sonic 3 using the Sega Master System's FM Sound Unit (a soundfont of the YM2413).

The instruments don't sound like the YM2413 ones?

They don't? They do for me. I used the acoustic bass, vibraphone, drums, and piano from this soundfont http://drunk3nj3sus.blogspot.ca/2015/04/sega-master-system-fm-soundfonts.html

It's not authentic, but it's fairly close. To test it, I used some of Johnnyz's FM MIDIs, and they sounded nearly identical to the original songs. Here's an example. This is Rise From Your Grave from Altered Beast. The volume levels are different (not an issue with the soundfont, I just didn't adjust them) and the drums aren't quite the same, but otherwise it's an exact copy.

I will admit that it's not the greatest soundfont ever, so if a better one exists, I'll switch to that.

P.S. I did use one PSG track.
