Hexagon and On


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An 8-minute chiptune, inspired by Chipzel's style in her Super Hexagon album, and originally made for Serponge's 8-minute Super Hexagon Geometry Dash level.
Feel free to use it on your level too!

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 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

wow you should have been the composer for the original game! or if they make a new game they should hire you for most of the music, cause this is chipzel style!
I hope serponge didn't give up on the level xD

Woah that's really kind of you to say! :D Thanks so much! I feel like this year I've improved a lot with making chiptune stuff like this (probably thanks to Serponge's request), so your review means a lot to me c:

And Serponge mentioned he lost his vision on the level that this was suppose to be in, but he might be working on something else for it! ;D

I wish there was a sixth star, then they could make a hexagon(and on)!
I found the melody a bit annoying after the 2 minute mark, but it was still amazingly catchy and I love it!

Zanzlanz responds:

Thanks a bunch! :O And thanks for the favorite as well!
Yes, it's definitely not easy to make the song go on for so long with new melodies and a similar mood - normally stuff like this will have some sort of break in the middle, but not here! :D

This is a really neat song! Can you describe what you mean by creating the sounds with your own software? Sounds pretty interesting. Great job with the track as well

Zanzlanz responds:

Thank you dude! :D

I'll elaborate on that for sure! I made a lot of the main sounds with a program I made in Flash, called Dubnia Studio. I saved the loops I created in Dubnia, and loaded them into FL Studio (which is way more powerful for making music haha).

Right before I made Hexagon and On, I made a plugin for Dubnia Studio that creates these really GameBoy/NES-sounding noisy square wave effects. I think the first minute is basically all with that plugin, plus a kick drum haha. So that's really the extent of it.

Recently, I converted the plugin to a true VST, so I can use it directly in FL Studio! Here's a little demonstration I made of the VST itself: https://streamable.com/3m2hd
I'm really interested in making more stuff like this. Audio programming is complex and fun to experiment with - I think there's a lot for me to explore.

I don't have a good video of Dubnia Studio itself unfortunately. It's just a side-project I started for me to have a really easy framework to make sounds with. But I guess here's a random gif of me implementing a scalable window - it shows some of its features in the process: https://i.imgur.com/ZYj7ZL4.gif

Let me know if you have any other questions about it! :) Thanks again!

Damn dude this is amazing chip-stuff!
