Really getting down to the percussion! In my opinion it started of a bit too low, but that's only personal preferences, and it doesn't really bother :D Other than that it's a solid track. I like it, good job!

Only 4.5 because its not my kinda music but @Calamaistr you cant get mad at him just because he doesnt like your music its his own opinion so dont flip out on him.

midimachine responds:

man that's so not flipping out haha.

cala's just been totally disrespectful towards the judges and most of the participants who were involved in the competition. he was complaining like we should've waited for him to make something, because he was so sure that he's so much better than everyone else and that he definitely would've placed. complaining about the judges picking a not-completely 8-bit song as the winner, and going on in particular about how he didn't like this song and giving other people shit for saying they liked it. like, that's not on y'know? it's okay not to like my shit, that's all g. but if you're going to be an asshole to other people because they do then i'm not going to repay total and utter disrespect with pleasantries, nahmeen?

anyway thanks for taking time to comment! appreciated :)

Really nice track! Gotta love the crushes and sounds that made it sound like really old 8-bit/chip music.
Wish I could make something like this but 8-bit and chip is just something I cannot yet make :/

For some reason I want to boot my old dusty Amiga 500 and record it's downloading sounds and make track of it! (you all prolly know that amasing crackling sound and orange light rapidly flashing ;)

midimachine responds:

theoretically this could've been made 20+ years ago since it's mostly just one gameboy
you couldn't have something like this in a game though cause the playback routine is taking up 99% of the CPU haha

dude if you have an old 500 definitely try out protracker if you haven't already, make some keygen music haha. thanks for the review!

Never heard chip step and after a few more listens after a while i cant think of a better song to get me introduced.

midimachine responds:

its not chipstep, sorry! check out stress_tn or cheapshot for actual chipstep :)

Best 8-bit ever heard.Thought all 8-bits suck.This changed my mind ;)
