FAWM 2011 - Track #2
http://fawm.org/
-------------------------
- Composed/produced by Nick Perrin
- Opening SFX by NES games

Back with yet another CHIPTUNE!

This one is pure 8-bit NES. It follows the hardware rules of the NES all the way through: never more than 1 triangle, 2 squares, 1 noise and 1 dpcm channel ever sounding at once. This means there are only ever 3 NOTES AT A TIME!

I take all credit for increasing your ability to fight off alien invasions, insane villains, and robotic monkeys. Please send money.

SOFTWARE USED:
Cubase 5
YMCK Magical 8-bit Plugin
iZotope oZone 3

i actually found this really impressive :o the only way i could think of making it better is layer it a bit more but all in all this is very good

Pleasant, but not groundbreaking

Definitely feeling the Contra-style with the early melody. It tends to drag a bit in the slower arpeggio/melodic sections due to multiple repetitions... Lots of the themes are repeated one time too many for my ears and sense of progression.


NickPerrin responds:

Fair enough, although I'm not quite sure what you mean in regards to "repeated one time too many," as after the intro any given section only repeats once.
Thanks for the review!

This is your best 8 bit song so far!

This is a true masterpiece, and it also has a Konami feel to it, you are reading this from a person that listens to chiptunes all day and that played the entire GB/GBC/NES library of games (played not finished it's a difference).
One thing I really appreciate is your ability to make 8 bit songs like the ones from the old days, meaning you have the talent to make a 8 bit songs that describe a certain feeling, for example a boss battle, a water level and fighting off aliens in space.
Also thank you for putting the names of the used software in your comment, this song makes me wanna make my own shit.

Well I wish you success in your future projects!

P.S. This review has a awkward ending to it so Ill end by saying bye!


NickPerrin responds:

Thanks for the review! It's good to know that a person with an appreciation for the chiptunes of the NES days digs this song. Konami was definitely the 8bit influence for most of this track.
Glad you enjoyed it, good luck with your own chiptunes if you end up making some!

I have different tastes, but

This was right up my alley.

Thank you, also, for the review.
Glad you're enjoying the new tracks!

So-so

Not bad, but I have different tastes. This is a little too preppy for me, but still a nice peice.


NickPerrin responds:

It is meant to be in that style, emulating the musicality of NES games like Contra and Megaman, rather than the style of music from the modern chip scene which is definitely darker.
Thanks for the review!
