sounds like one of those videogame songs that someone can remember for ever :p
That's quite the compliment, sir.
its a great little retro piece, would work well for an oldschool rpg carnival or maybe a score-screen for a game targeted at younger audiences.
also, the 5 ms glitch you're talking about is only the flash player, not the mp3 format. the first time the track loops it will have that tiny break but just listen to it the second time over and you'll see the gap is gone.
also, just in case, try using an sound editing tool like Audacity or Audition to shave off a few ms from the mp3 file. you should consider getting Fraunhofer MP3 codec if you prefer constant bitrates, since LAME is best suited for VBR. :3
Funny you should say carnival. If any songs other than Viennese waltzes (like The Blue Danube used in Elite) had any influence on this tune it would have had to have been the Song of Storms from Majora's Mask and the merry go round song from the ghost level of Super Mario 64 as those were the games I'd most recently played before writing this song. They are both very carnivalesque.
I tried getting rid of the gap with Audacity, but when saved (using LAME) it'd always put the gap right back in. I'll definitely look into the Fraunhofer encoder for my next upload. Thanks for the input!
Brings good feelings back too me. Very Cheerful and deserves a higher score.
Thanks! I'm glad you found it cheerful.
Sounds very nostalgic!
I love the simple sound of it. Makes me think of those good ol' 8-bit games. Great job!
Glad you enjoyed it!
It kinda reminds me of using surf in Pokemon Gold
I never played Pokemon, so I've never heard this song, but I love it! Thanks for letting me know about it. The world would be a better place with more 8-bit Viennese waltz loops.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
