It sounds like you put some trap and techno influence into this. To be honest, I would have just used a straight sine wave for the bass. And where did you get the percussion? It sounds just as suited to chip as it might to hip-hop. Really good work with the percussion. It's almost hard to follow. My only complaint in that area is that the kick isn't satisfying. Maybe it's the chippy feel you were trying to incorporate (or maybe it's just me). Overall, it's okay, and definitely could be suited to a game.
Good to see you moving into chiptunes. Maybe you wanna try your hand at VOPM? The sounds come out very quiet, so you're gonna have to put gain AND master limiter on them. Grab Gens Movie 11a so you can record some drum samples. And remember that the MegaDrive also has 3 PSG, so you can use one of them for a hi hat and two of them for extra backing or chords.
A little bit, that'd be the square bass. Most games I played had square, not sine. :P Glad you liked it!
The percussion is actually from some trap packs I got. I just squashed them into as lo-fi as I could get. Kind of a hybrid sound. I think most of them are from Certified Trap God samples. The kick I was using was just sub freqs. Could be why -- no high end.
Thanks for the tips. I dunno if I'll be any good with VOPM, but I'll try my hand at it eventually -- and by that I mean I'll post when I have something decent sounding!
