Welcome to the 8-bit Wild West. Kick off yer boots 'n sit a spell.

Harmony and melody lines, as well as the bass, were all made with 3x Osc. A few plugins were added for dramatic effect. Nothing too long or complex, but hey—it was fun to make.


Haha the only other chron on the site :P

thisis actually a rather cute and odd melody - I like it! I like your use of reverb on the main melody and how your supporting melodies are on the side - a good stereo spacing for sure.

1:10 slows it down a bit.. perhaps a bit TOO much - at this point the main melody starts to hurt my ears haha - one of the gambles of placing anything solitary right in the center - it stabs the brain lol..

pretty good though!

And yet there are like a million DJ-something-or-others out there! Go fig. xD

Heh, thanks! Cute and odd certainly fits. It was a fun little experiment in 3xOsc, and while I'm sure it's far from my best, it was a blast to make. Really glad to hear that the stereo spacing and reverb action are solid.

Yeah, but unfortunately my test audience was complaining about the fast pacing and asking for a slower, sparser section to ease the tension. I was personally fine with the overall pace, but...ah, well. I suppose that's what I get. Apologies for any permanent brain damage. lol

Pretty good is, well...pretty good! I really appreciate the review.

I really like it, it just seems a bit flat. Like I am listening in mono or something, which to be clear, I am not. I like the tune, its really enjoyable and you've done a great job getting it out there, I feel like it is just missing a bit of depth, but that could just be a symptom of the whole 8bit theme.

Yeah, there's actually a fair amount of stereo action going on, including constant movement of the galloping progressions. Admittedly, much of the stereo separation is relatively equal from left to right, so the effect would ultimately be a bit subtler, which was intended. The percussive instruments, however, cover a wider stereo field and tend to move from one area to another in a much more obvious way.

Eh, you try stuff. Sometimes it pans out (accidental pun), sometimes not. Regardless, your review is thoroughly appreciated. Thanks for listening!
