Sound Voltex last edited by Orbi on 01/26/19 12:08AM View full history

SOUND VOLTEX (abbreviated SDVX) is a rhythm game series designed around a similar DJ control paradigm to Konami's beatmania IIDX series, but with a different focus and radically different theming.

Gameplay

In addition to the main four square buttons, the game has two smaller "FX" buttons that, when pressed in time, will apply DJ-style effects to the music being played. As its main gimmick, players have two knobs that essentially control the left and right channels which can be rotated to match on-screen prompts, providing a sort of filter sound effect on top of the music to emulate crossfading.

Song Selection

SOUND VOLTEX does not make use of keysounding, Konami's previously patented system corresponding button presses with song-specific sounds to make it sound like the player is actively playing a song. Therefore, songs can be adapted for the game much more rapidly than in keysounded games. This opens up more kinds of music to be implemented in lieu of a dedicated sound team, with Konami licensing songs from labels like Exit Tunes and Touhou doujin labels as well as holding their own producer contests.
