It was a pretty catchy remix to the Metal Man theme,i liked the deep bass from the drum sound effects that went together with the high pitched light streaming sound effects,the syncing was done very well and overall it was an enjoyable remix,good job. :)
This is GarageBand?
This is so awesome! Metalman is my favorite!
How is this GarageBand, though? I've been using GB for quite some time. How do you make this with GB? Can you tell me? because I've been wanting for so long to make an actual video game remix
MetroidMan, END TRANSMISSION /O_O
Hahaha, thanks so much! I appreciate the votes and feedback. :)
Yep, this is vanilla GarageBand-no added instruments, plugins, or tricks. Created by ear, via listening to the original.
There are 4 tracks (same as all NES music, hahaha):
* Bass line is "Tight Synth Bass" with Compressor set to "Synth Definition"
* Melody and Harmony are both modified "Cheerful Trance" (set the instrument's "Tuning" slider just a tad more towards "Narrow" on the left)
* Drums are "Pop Kit". I made them less important because this song had pretty uninteresting drums, but very interesting harmonies.
Basically I just look around through Synth Basics / Leads / Textures for most sounds, and play around with their settings to get the right Lo-Fi type of instrument for NES mixes.
The hard part is listening to the original and making sure I've got the notes just right. I suppose I could import a MIDI, but I like doing it by ear...sometimes it can be tricky, but most of the time it's pretty fun, starting with a simple basic melody and then adding bit by bit you can hear it grow into the full song.
Go ahead and try it! For your first, try and find a song where it's easy to listen to and pick out each instrument. I actually started with music from the first two Sonic the Hedgehog games, because they sound great and it's really easy to pick out each instrument. The instruments also don't have a lot of change in their volume levels, so that was one less thing I had to worry about on those songs.
Good luck! :)
