A simple 8bit tune inspired by 90's nostalgia. Reviews appreciated!

EDIT 1/26/10:

Remastered and slightly re-edited. Enjoy.


Pretty good.

Very catchy indeed. Harmony and melody were rather loud for my taste though. I would suggest turning them down so the drums and bass stick out just a little better.

Good Work.

TakeTheBait responds:

I thought it was pretty well mixed, but thanks a lot for the words of advice, I'll keep that in mind!

Great melody, but a bit muddy

First of all, it's a great arrangement and the tune is insanely catchy. However, just because it's retro doesn't mean you can't mix a little! All of the sounds are clashing together into a huge mess of noise, which doesn't sit well on the ears and distracts from the rest of the song. Give it a little volume mixing and especially focus on panning some sounds away from the central point.

5/5, 8/10

TakeTheBait responds:

Thanks for the review, Stupor. As of 1/26/10 I remastered the track and it sounded much better. Panning is something that I didn't do however, it's a great idea and can really make an 8bit track, thanks for the suggestion I'll be sure to use it in future songs or maybe even revisit this one!
