Check out Johnfn's track The Fight

LAST ROUND and i took a risk of making an 8bit-ish track
wanted to have fun and adlib on my controller (will get a bigger one this xmas)
and didnt want to exhaust crazy steampunk tracks and i used some for vocaloid songs.. :)
NGADM was fun! i usually never finish a track in two weeks (crazy) but this competition forced my hands to do so!! damn you!! F.A.P.

used alot of 3xosc and default FL Samples (and some harmless but mostly 3xosc)

oh if you ever find yourself tapping your feet or bopping your head youre probably a weirdo

EDIT: and of course i wanted it to be playable by people ill be uploading a version where it only includes the theme and the 5/4 bit imrpov on your own melody :)

- NGADM Round 6 Review -

Plent of melodic variation! As characteristic of your songs, I love how there's so much going on at the same time, and nothing sounds out of place. Some particular favorite parts are at 0:22, 0:53, 1:10. The section starting at 1:10 sounded like it could used in a MarioKart race. The transitions at 0:43 and 1:10 were great; in fact, transitions are something that hardly even seem to exist when listening to this piece. The track is highly cohesive, and melodically very stimulating. After a while, however, the business in the song becomes too much, and as well as the lack of dynamic range which, even with the lively compositon, makes it somewhat stagnate in the entire middle section, considering the track's length. I liked your ending. It ended on the same, fast-paced note but also brought about a quick sense of conclusion. Overall, great track! My apologies for the late review.

Score: 9

and here is a very late response: thank you ! hehe

NGADM Review


I was not expecting this from you, and I must say that I was more than pleasantly surprised! 8bit suits your composition style remarkably well, it's actually quite crazy how well it suits you. Everything about this track just blends into a culmination of 8bit excellence. I must say that the instruments, along with the time signature of the track and finally the overall mix, give amazing sound quality results. The entire song is awesome, but I really enjoyed listening from 1:40 to 2:50 - it's just so well coordinated.

As others have said, my only issue with this track is with the ending. It just cuts out so suddenly that it makes me wonder what else you could have done...however, this works well in a neat little way, too. It sort of sounds like you are turning off a game!

This review is long overdue, my apologies steampianist. It has been a pleasure listening to your songs and watching you progress through the NGADM without skipping a beat through the entire duration of the contest. I will be keeping my eye out for your future tracks, my friend! Keep making music! :D

Score: 9.5/10

steampianist responds:

Well aint that "Weird"

I was harassed by the weirdo police.

No seriously, I was on the bus and a guy sat next to me and said I was strange. He told me he was a member of the "Weirdo Police".

steampianist responds:

keep it up

steampianist responds:
