After quite a frustrating day, I pulled out a thing I worked on a month or so ago that was just about finished and decided to give it some tiny tweaks before tossing it up here. I originally made it just to try out Famisynth because I've never used chiptune elements before. I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. I think I may do some 8-bit stuff here and there just to practice 3 or 4-part writing. In any case, here's this thing. Had some fun making it, for sure. :)

Aside from Famisynth, the 8-bit drums are Odo Synth's "DrSid".

This is Perfect ! :DD

Hearing some of the Route 10 theme from Pokemon BW in here!

Strong piece, I think its lacking in bass though. May use in a video game!

Awesome, awesome, awesome! (I should learn some new cool meaning words...)

I just can't describe how much I love this song... I've downloaded it few months ago and now it is in my top 20 most listened songs (according to my phone).

Neat intro, fast start (0:15), lil stop, beautiful melody, high melody... ahh... Best part at 2:02-2:22, although I love the whole song...

I don't know why but it reminds me The Final Phase. However I call it Deemoish song rather then Phaseish. ;)

Ohh, and what about the title? Bark... and Byte? Why?

Anyways keep up the nice work.

Deemo-R responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it! I honestly don't put much thought into any of my music titles - I just like to put little alliterations and puns in there. Alternatively, I also like things that just sound cool. :T

Thanks for listening! :)

Neat song! Sounds rather not like anything I've heard before, the chiptune elements and guitar/percussion blend quite well. Nothing particularly bad to say about it :)

Deemo-R responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it! :)

Simply awesome! Famisynth is a relatively simple, yet powerful tool to have at your disposable. You've used it incredibly well here! The blend of the 8-bit and the more progressive rock style theme works so well, especially since this is something that is inspired by Megaman (assuming, at least).

I'd love to hear more like this! :)

Deemo-R responds:

Thanks man! I think 8-bit music has really grown on me a lot in the recent months. There's really a unique timbre and set of limitations to what it can do, and it's a great way to really see how your writing is in a small, exposed manner. I'd love to do some more stuff with it, for sure! As for blending things like guitar in there, I'm really hoping to ditch this vst guitar for a real one next time :D
