Sound Test! You get to listen to cool sounds.


Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic Adventure

The Sound Test is a subject that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It is a feature where the player is able to listen to most music and sound effects from the game.

Overview

The Sound Test is an in-game jukebox that contains various audio tracks ranging from background music, sound effects and voice tracks of that game. It can also feature music that is not heard anywhere else in the game.

In earlier games for the Sega Mega Drive, the Sound Test is a hidden feature and is often integrated with the Level Select. Like Level Select or Debug Mode, it is accessed by inputting certain actions, which has to be done on a certain part of the game to do so. In modern Sonic games, the player usually needs to fulfil certain in-game requirements for the Sound Test and its tracks to be unlocked though they can be available from the beginning of some games as well.

The Sound Test can also be used to activate other hidden features in actual gameplay akin to cheat codes or reveal hidden content. In the earlier main games, this comes in the form of playing certain tracks in a specific order; most of such sequences tend to reference various subjects such as dates.

Game appearances

Sonic the Hedgehog (1991)

The Level Select menu with the Sound Select option highlighted, from Sonic the Hedgehog (1991).

In the original Sonic the Hedgehog, the Sound Test is named "Sound Select". It is a hidden feature that is integrated with Level Select. Once in Level Select, the player can press up/down to move the highlighted option in that direction until Sound Select is highlighted. The player can press left or right to change the track and press B Button (Sega Genesis).svg to play that track.

In Sonic the Hedgehog Genesis, a similar feature known as the Juke Box is added, which is unlocked after beating the game with all six Chaos Emeralds collected.

In the 2013 remaster of Sonic the Hedgehog, the Sound Test can be accessed through the Level Select just like the original Mega Drive version. The track list and order has also been altered compared to the original Mega Drive version.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2

In Sonic the Hedgehog 2, there are two versions of Sound Test in the game: one in the Options menu and one which is integrated with the act select menu like in the original Sonic the Hedgehog. It also includes sound effect tracks from Sonic the Hedgehog, some of which were not used in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, as well as Sound Test functions.

While the Sound Test's controls remain identical from Sonic the Hedgehog, the player can now press A Button (Sega Genesis).svg to change the selected track by sixteen spots forward (10 in base 16).

In the 2013 remaster of Sonic the Hedgehog 2, due to the lack of the original Options menu, the Sound Test is only available through the Level Select. Also, all tracks numbered 20 and higher from the Mega Drive version are omitted from the Sound Test of the 2013 remaster.

Trivia

  • In Knuckles' Chaotix, by entering "00", "08" and "17" in the third set under the title "Mars", 0117 should be reading on number beside at the Color Test, and Amy Rose will make a cameo dancing and saying "Cool, sweet & catchy!".
  • In the Sound Test of Sonic Chaos, if the player moves Controlpadds.png in a forward quarter circle motion (down, down-left and left) and presses Game Gear I Button.png or Game Gear II Button.png, Sonic can be seen shooting out a sparkling fireball, resembling the Hadoken from the Street Fighter series.[1]
  • In the 2013 remaster of Sonic the Hedgehog, there was a glitch which prevented the player from using the Sound Test feature if they were using touch controls. Touching the play button only advanced the track number by 16 spots (since the tracks are numbered in hexadecimal format) instead of playing the selected track. Using controllers paired with mobile devices however still worked with Sound Test as normal. This was fixed in later versions.
