I'll find a place to post it so that it doesn't sound like a radio underwater. But in the meantime, pretend it doesn't and drop a comment!

P.S.: Thanks for all your feedback, you guys. Without it, I probably wouldn't have been able to achieve what you're listening to now. Just remember that every comment counts, and the more comments and downloads, the more music you get! Especially thanks to those who favorited any of my work, really appreciate it.

I can understand how it sounds underwater but I don't think it's too bad! In fact, I think it adds a uniqueness that you don't really hear in bit music all that often.

I came here after listening to World 1. Looking forward to more bit music from you! :D

Thank you very much! I'll keep it comin'!

Actually, I found that the "radio underwater" sounds pretty awesome. If there was a boss fight underwater, this would work more than perfectly. Great job, and keep up the good work!

Pitfall responds:

Y'know, that's actually a really good idea/ way to look at it. Thanks! I'm making a game right now, so I might make it the boss theme or something like you said!

I like this song, but as you said, it does sort of sound as if it is underwater. Though this is not always a bad thing, I think for something "8-bit" should sound clean. I especially love the part that starts at 1:55.

And just out of curiosity, what program do you use to do this kind of music? Is this played by you and looped, or is it all live tracks?

Nice job, and thank you for contributing to the site.

Pitfall responds:

Actually it's a little bit of both. Sometimes, I'll figure out what I'm doing first on my keyboard which plays sounds similar to this, then transfer all that onto a program on the internet called audiosauna, which i use through google chrome, downloaded at the chrome webstore for free. Its a really nice program for beginners and more experienced users alike, and it's fun to experiment and see how creative you can get with an instrument. Usually though, when writing music, I'll just skip straight to audiosauna and then just kinda wing it, which is what i did for this one.
