This song took me a few days to make! The difficulty was the lightning fast pace and synth lead guitars.

Probably the only reason I played Beat Chaser 2 longer, since I really wasn't into the game. I really enjoyed this soundtrack!!! Fast paced and has an awesome guitar lead~

Hello McFarlandBEATS!

Too loopy.

A pretty well made piece of music here, though while I was listening to it, it took me a few minutes to try to figure out where it belonged exactly, toward the middle, it started to sound like the sort of song that's be in the menu screen of a racing type game, it just gave me that sort of feel.

Also, while the song was well made and interesting to listen to, it sounded too samey throughout, inf act, I just barely noticed it's looped several times while I've been writing this. Nonetheless, if I had a menu for an action packed game that needed a menu, I'd bet this would fit just fine.

Yeah, I think the problem is that it's 2 minutes long, even if it does have 5 distinct different parts. Of course the underlying theme is very similar between 2 of them (the main chorus) as you pointed out.

I think it would be a better piece if I extended it to 4 minutes and made several different parts. In actuality, my goal was to make it around 4 minutes but after 10 hours of adding/removing new content to the song I settled with 2 minutes.

Maybe I'll try to add new content to it and make an "extended" version?

As far as it looping several times without you noticing, it's working as intended ;)

Wow great :)

The part from :39 is a little bit too simple, you need to put in something that goes rather fast to contrast the slow notes that are there now, maybe you could use the same soft sound that comes in the "break" after it, this way those other instruments would fall off, and that one would stay, giving a nice effect.

But it's really awesome :D

McFarlandBEATS responds:

Thanks much!

Your suggestion really makes a LOT of sense. That would really be a nice touch to it. I'll do just that! I wonder if you can update songs on NG? I can't find an edit button anywhere...
