I made this in FamiTracker, and in it I use echoey effects and other stuff, and I can actually play all the lead bits on guitar.

Almost amazed at how people can make such amazing musioc in famitrack XD. Really outstanding piece this :). I'm a huge fan of your retro style, and I loved the effects you use. The synths are really good sounding for the most part, and the structure and tempo changes were awesome :D.

One thing I want to pick on though is that the saw wave bass you use throughout the track kinda muds up the mix a bit. Try cutting the very lowest frequencies,(around 5-70hz maybe?) to give the bass a cleaner sound without it loosing its harsh sound.

Great job with this :). Keep it up :D!

I really like how energetic this was. Plus the tempo changes were awesome. You don't expect some intense transitions from an 8-bit song, but this had them. The beginning was super catchy and the transition at 1:03 was really good.

Thanks man! I wrote most of the song on Guitar and then did my best to translate that over to FamiTracker. I'm glad to know that somebody actually enjoys my work!

Unlike alot of 8-bit music I've heard around YouTube made by other people, I didn't make this with anything in mind except "Make it sound exotic", so that's just what I did!

Thanks again.
