Hexagon and On

Share

Author Comments

An 8-minute chiptune, inspired by Chipzel's style in her Super Hexagon album, and originally made for Serponge's 8-minute Super Hexagon Geometry Dash level.

It's a long one! I hope you enjoy it!

I used FL Studio for the most part, but half of the sounds were created with my own software. It's the first time I've used my program in a track! :) (It's called Dubnia Studio)

I like it because it remained refreshing despite of its length, it really surprises me because most long songs that I've heard are often boring and repetitve. It's also possibly the best chiptune song that I have ever heard. Good job, Zanzlanz!

Zanzlanz responds:

Hey thank you for the kind review Cretelcus!

I did put a focus on making it have different unique sections and little melodies as it went on. It was difficult to keep coming up with new sections that still felt like the rest of the piece, especially when trying to mirror the type of looping structure of Chipzel's style, but somehow it all worked out I think!

And possibly the best you've heard?, woah!! Thanks again :D!

Ich mag es überhaupt
ENG: I like it at all

Zanzlanz responds:

Vielen Dank! :D!

Oh wow...This song is phenomenal! The 8bit instruments all sound so good! I love how the song doesn't even seem repetitive at all, even with similar sounds! One of the best tracks I've heard so far :)

Zanzlanz responds:

Holy moly thanks! It's certainly a long track, so making sure it wasn't too repetitive was important to me.

Also thanks for the compliment on the instruments! I programmed a lot of them from scratch in my experimental DAW, so it's cool to hear that they sound good in a context :D

I still want to make a shortened version when I release a full chiptunes album though, I think that'd be a good idea.

Good song m8!

Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks again dude! c: c:

I really LOVE this song, the music is well structured and is entertaining to listen to, in addition to the idea of making a level with the music is very good!!

although could you give me permission to use it on YouTube? because I just uploaded a video to my channel with this song because I had done a level of hexagon and youtube is sending me copyright for the song xD

the video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVM8eHCBRrw&t=10s

Zanzlanz responds:

OMG I'm so sorry for missing this review until now! First of all, thanks so much for your kind comment about the music :D
It's cool to see it in a Super Hexagon-related track now :) I like the UI you have in yours! Nice work, I really love it!!

Anyway, yes! I give you (Roboto) permission to monetize your video containing my music (in particular "Hexagon and On") in your YouTube video. If you need additional proof that I give you permission, there's a page on my website with my general permission:
https://zanzlanz.com/about#youtube

I think all you have to do is tell YouTube that I'm totally fine with that stuff.
But yeah I'm sorry about the Content ID claim. I'm currently unable to fix this myself, as it's a third party controlling the rights management :S They've been taking over two months to reply to my emails about this exact issue, and are being surprisingly unhelpful. But you should be able to dispute the claim and get revenue again yourself.
Let me know if it works out or not!

Thanks again :D
