An original composition.

I quite like it, not too sure on the middle eight, but whatever.

Used 3x Osc channell for all melody and bass parts.

Sounds a little thin overall now i listen back, but i generally like the song.

I liked the drum beat at first but it could've been a bit stronger in reflection.

Any tips on how to make this sound a bit more 'full would be appreciated.

Made on Fruity Loops in one hour

reviews and ratings would be lovely =)

Please check out my other songs as well (especially qwertyuiop =) )

And if you get the slightest inclination to use it in an animation, please feel free, would love to this is in the background to something.

Wow, you have the music talent. You just need true 8-bit samples and other things like better more 8-bit percs. Also a couple FX wouldn't do too bad, if you dont know what FX to use, look up 8-bit Metropolis for some good inspiration!

chubby-chobby responds:

aha since i made this i got magical 8 bit plug, which gives a much smoother sound than the 3xOSC channell, but yeah, i dunno where to draw the line particularly between making chip-inspired music and 8-bit music, to me, true 8 bit sounds great, but 8 bit drums are often just far too quiet for my liking. Thanks again for the reviews :) I'll be sure to check back at some more of yours :) and thanks for the good ratings :D

Another nice chiptuney song. As for the "full" feel, you need proper mixing of the instruments to ensure their frequencies do not clash. Assign eash instrument to a mixer channel and then load a parametric EQ so they occupy their own part of the frequency spectrum. Yea.
Now that I think about it, Chiptune does not really too much mixing as the sounds are so lofi. The most mixing would be done on the kick if anything.

chubby-chobby responds:

My mixing is awful.
At this point it was actually non existant.
I'm trying to mess around a bit with with it now, but as you said chiptune and mixing don't have to mix too much =)
as this is chiptune and i chose more powerful drum voices anyway, i probably wouldn't mi them too much different for this one, i would go back and change the volumes on thigns a bit more so you get a clearer texture, but this is a song of the past now. Thanks for listening :)

Arcadish fun

This would be fun in some kind of retarded platform flash-game :o).

The melody is very well done and I found that the repetitiveness (as the others wrote) is actually a good thing if this song were used in a game since it shouldn't completely distract the gamer.

However, keep in mind that you should add some more layers in future songs (maybe add some strings or pads in the background in order to not make it sound too empty).

Keep up the good work :o).


chubby-chobby responds:

yeah this was my first try at it, now i look back at it i wish i'd used a slightly more raw 'chip' voice.
In future i might try and mix this style with others a little more in future.
thanks for the review =)

Quite impressive

Could def see this in a vid of sorts! However, it is a bit repetitive, but that can be said about any song, good work man!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars


impressive, especially for being made in just one hour. It did feel a little repetitive, maybe cut it down 20-30 seconds? That's really my only suggestion.

Keep up the good work!

chubby-chobby responds:

hmm i personally feel 20-30 seconds would be a too short, but i can see how you can find it repetitive, especially as all of the melody and bass was done on one voice,

thanks for the review
