= = BE SURE TO CHECK OUT MY OTHER 8-BIT TRACKS: "VICTORY!" and "GRAVEYARD" = =

NOTE: This is an ORIGINAL song, NOT a remix of any 8-bit game.

This is Hydro Dreams, one of many more 8-bit tunes to come. Also check out the others clearly labeled as 8-bit in my music profile. It's part of a new musical project I've just started, found at myspace(dot)com/daedatheu s .

This song strictly follows the NES hardware rules - no more than 3 wave channels at once + a noise channel. This means there are NEVER MORE THAN 3 NOTES PLAYING AT ANY GIVEN TIME, just like a real 8-bit NES chiptune. And, like any classic chiptune, this one loops!

Enjoy.

Great Stuff

I love the ornamentation and that one pitch bend you did (I love those)

Kudos for keeping within the boundaries of 8-bit counterpoint. I've always found it hard to express creativity in my music with only 3 voices (have yet to actually do it.), but you've managed to pull it off wonderfully.

Its true talent like the composers of the 80's that could make a memorable tune with such a narrow box to work in, hell its like Beethoven and Haydn.

Great job.

8-bit heaven

Another brilliant piece of music. If only everything submitted to Newgrounds was this good.

Respect and love.
RESPECT AND MOTHERFRFUCKING LOVE.

Amazing, man.

Pure genius.

Did you use FamiTracker for this?

NickPerrin responds:

Thanks!!

I used Magical 8-bit Plugin and Toad Nes Drums v1.2 I believe. Both are free VSTs that can sound pretty authentic if you use them right.

Cheers,
Nick

amazing

this really does sound professional. i like it a lot, you should find a way to get this in a really kick ass game! XD
