A remix of Wicked Child from Castlevania using Konami VRC6 and standard NES/Famicom channels. The Konami VRC6 was a chip that, among other things, gave three additional sound channels (two pulse channels and one sawtooth channel). The pulse channels allowed the composer to choose between 8 duty cycles, as opposed to the standard NES/Famicom channels which only had four (one of which is basically an inverted version of another, so only three of them are useful). Unfortunately, hardware differences between Japan's Famicom and the USA's NES made it impossible to use extended audio on the NES (at least not without some hardware modding). Google it if you want more information.

Music made with FamiTracker.

YES! Thank you so much! This has always been my favorite Castlevania song. I haven't heard the VRC6 version before, but man, this is great!

I haven't heard the original, but I must say that this is one really catchy tune.
Nice use of the VCR6 channels. I really like it, when people are using them. It sometimes make a great NES music even better.
In this case as well.

I hope you will more VCR6 remixes in the future.
Great job.

VRC6 is kind of my chiptune niche. Don't expect me to leave it anytime soon.

You might want to listen to my other audio submissions. In fact, I just submitted an original chiptune piece I dubbed "Nuclear Holocaust".
