Doing some more fiddling around with 8-bit chiptune stuff. This is 100% 8-bit, I drew in all the waveforms myself. You can probably tell.

I tried to give this one a bit of a dubstep feel.

Did some SUBSTANTIAL work on the melody instrument. I changed it from a lazy-ass square wave to a custom-drawn sound and made more use of the 8th channel that was mostly empty for the whole song to add in those arpeggiated notes.

Still working on this though.

Made in Milkytracker.

Does have an interesting oriental feel to it...

I do however think that the drums may be a bit too IN YOUR FACE in this song though :[. I loved all of the background melodies (bass/leads), but your white noise stuff was crazy overbearing.

Things to take a second look at:
- I don't think your "wubs" sound exactly right; you're killing it with that noise wave :[
- The snare is too much here
- your build is a bit confusing

Overall nice effort, but I think this could use a bit more work :[

Percussions are overdone but song is still nice

The track starts off very nicely with those bleeping sounds and the nice bass in the background. I also like the melody here a lot.

The beating sounds are a tad bit too loud in my opinion as they overpower the melodies. During the middle of the song the percussion sounds are a bit overdone, I think. Less is more here.

The outro is done in a nice way again. The looping works good, except that the ending of the loop is much louder than the beginning. Maybe you could lower the volume towards the end of the track a bit?

Oh yeah, during the middle of the song, the melodies remind me a lot of the game "International Karate +". God, I loved that game... ^^

Thanks a lot for the review! Like I told Coop, I especially appreciate your appraisal of the weird noise effects I smothered the middle of the track with, since it was an experiment, and it's always good to hear peoples' reactions to things that aren't often done. I'll tone it down a bit, since people seem to agree that it's a little much. I'll take your advice on lowering the volume in the outro a bit too. Thanks for the input!

Oriental VG?

Hmm, an interesting blend of styles used in this piece, to give a nice overall effect. I'm not sure about the beating and banging sounds across the middle of the piece, but other than that, you've got a very nice sounding track. Perhaps it was supposed to be percussion and it just kind of went a little too far in that respect.

If I were you, I'd stick to the oriental sounds that started the track off, as it's great quality and if you were thinking of adding percussion into it a little later on, perhaps go for something a little softer and quieter? This would help with balance, as the early and late parts of the track just went a little beyond the rest of the track in their form.

Still I love the ambience it gives and you're certainly capable of making it for this genre.

Thanks for the great review! I especially appreciate the input on the weird noise effects throughout the middle of the song, since I wasn't quite sure where I stood on those myself. That aspect of the song was a bit experimental and people seem to agree that it's a bit excessive, so based on your critique I'll tone it down a bit.

Time to travel

Gives that feel that you are starting an adventure actually. There you are on stage one and watching things shoot down and make explosions in the background and keeps you motivated to run to the finish line and go on to the next level. Interesting song though, what program was used?

The bass here is very solid and audible. Has a relaxing feel to it as if letting you become aware of where you are. The synth has a nice catchy feel within and gives a feel of just getting started up and learning everything. The drums and dub sounds were great and gave that feel of needing to hurry and find the boss to end the game.

Overall, great game song.

Thanks for the review! The program I used is MilkyTracker, which is a tracking program meant to, as I understand it, emulate the software that was used in early music development for games way back in the day.
