Found a few old patterns I'd forgotten about going through some of my old songs and found a place for them to fit, it all sort of gelled.

Also, redone with instruments truer to the original.

Interesting. Not quite my style, but pretty good.

I like the main synth, because it kind of sounds like 3x-osc, which I like for the sake of 8-bit music. I just think it would be better if the other instruments fit the sound as well, except the background/bass acid-like synth. To me it seems like it kind of fights with the lead synth for my attention, though don't take my opinion too seriously, since what you think of it matters most, and I'm sure others have more valid opinions.

Thanks for reviewing!

I don't know what "3x-osc" is; the main synth is simple, pure squarewave, plus vibrato. Generating a squarewave is as easy as dividing the crystal frequency so it shows up in a lot of music synth chips.

I wonder what you're listening to this tune with? The lead ought to stand out from the bass synth since it's in surround sound and the bass isn't.

I'd never thought about this as a chiptune song. I could make it more chiptuney I suppose, especially the percussion.
