0. I don't know why I'm stuck on chiptune. I think it's because it's pretty straightforward in terms of sound design, so it lets me focus on the stuff I care more about (arrangement, melody, production to a lesser degree). It's also because I've been focusing on FM synthesis recently, which tends to go very easily with chippy sounds.
1. I was always impressed by how energetic Waterflame's songs were, so I wanted to write a song with an equal amount of energy. (himhim2340, this is for you ;-))
2. I think I really managed to push my production forward in terms of energy levels and good stuff like that. I've never written something so upbeat before. I never really cared to ace production, I always viewed it as a means to an end (so that people could understand the melodies etc.) This is because I believe that no one cares to listen to a song just because it's well produced.
3. I'm still using 99.9% FM synthesis.
4. Gonna just keep pushing at 9bit until it becomes 10bit.
5. Some of the better buildups I've done. Like that one at 3:10, I like it a lot. I'm actually using a reversed guitar sample in there, it makes it sound much more rich and interesting. (tricks of the trade ;o)
6. This song is so loud compared to my other songs. I always wondered how to get that extra loudness that well mastered songs have. Well I figured it out: ADD A TON OF BASS
