This is my final entry to the RUNGADM. It's also my final chapter to "Monsters," the series of songs I made months ago.

This is a pretty long song, about 7 minutes, but hopefully not long-winded. In it, I used a lot of glitching and automations (because I know how to use them now), and overall produced a dark sounding song.

Hopefully, it is to the liking of you, the listener.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good, but...

I found the song too quiet.
This may be the song, or it may be my speakers.
But It's a Very Good Song.


Rated 4 / 5 stars


Congrats on winning Retroman! You put up a good fight. Hell, you beat me first round. Two criticisms on this song: AAAAH! DBLUE! NOOOOO! If you want I can teach you how to make all the glitches Dblue does by hand, which gives much more flexibility.

Also: The drums are consistently too quiet, and also seem to be EQed a bit funny.

Other than that, this is great stuff. Keep at it.

RetromanOMG responds:

Hey, thanks, but because of Numi being unavailable at the moment, the scores can't be finalized. Hopefully I won though.

On the subject on DBlue, in the short time I've had it, it's already become gimmicky for me. I'll consider asking you for some pointers.

Wind Sentinel, Fire Behemoth, both excellent songs, both popular songs, both Monsters tracks.

Phantasm of Nightmare certainly sends chills up my spine. I absolutely FREAKING love the random creepy glitches that make me check to see if my internet is messing up.

I can't possibly ever give this a just review. I'm going to try though.

I'm at 1:40 and it's getting crazy with the drums fading in. The creepiness and professionalism of this remind me so much of BGM in a horror game I just beat. If I had listened to this while playing it, I would have cried. No doubt.

2:33 - Sweeet voc. You are amazing at this whole glitching thing. Once I'm back in town, we have to hang out and either collab on something or share strategies.

7:19 is a perfect link for this song. Much more was pushing it, but I hope you didn't take out any of the awesome stuff at the end!

3:50 - I've been hearing that creepy piano for a while, and it fits perfectly. Piano in your songs is what Electric 3 is in mine; Piano always seems to make your stuff that much more amazing, somehow. You have a knack for it.

I'm kinda sad to see the "Monsters" stuff go, but you'll undoubtedly pull off some other great series if you choose to.

5:40 - I went back to this as soon as I heard it, because it's SO GREAT. I love the effects you put on that little part of it.

I'm now at 6:15 or so, and the harmonic violins or flutes or whatever those are is very great.

6:45 - This solo is amazing, and the glitches still get to me. Excellent!

Hooolllyy crap. Hoooooolllllllyyyyy crap this is great.

RetromanOMG responds:

On the topic of the glitches, I made it work by making a big automation clip running through the whole song that represented a number of distortions and glitches that I prearranged, then just randomly clicked on different parts of of it to make them actually audible.

Because I had no actual structure for where they were placed, I still have them sneaking up on me as I listen to this over and over to find kinks in it.

Nicely Done

By far the coolest song I've heard from you yet. Good luck to you on winning RUNGADM, I'll be rooting for ya!

Thanks for the support, Chan. I've listened to Solus Lunes' song for the contest, and I have to say that it's anyone's game.

Hopefully, I'll win.
