Another song influenced by Motoi Sakuraba's work in the Star Ocean games (pretty sure the first two chords are from one of them) with tons of snes reverb! The really long reverb time makes it nearly impossible to loop for the Newgrounds audio player so I just looped the mp3 once with a fade at the end

I haven't posted any music in awhile cause it's been really tough finding the time to both finish a song and the mix without getting sick of it. I don't really have to worry about that kinda thing with this retro sound so I figured I'd put it up here

I Like it! its like early 20s song kinda style :)

Hey, a new piece from you; this is definitely a treat! I've always thought you had a strong grasp on the "Sakuraba-esque" aesthetic, and I think it's only become stronger over time! I love good JRPG battle music, and this feels really compelling to me. Not especially a fan of the extreme level of reverb, but I know some SNES music had that sound to it, lol. I hope you'll have more stuff of any sort in the future, because I always enjoy what you write. I definitely feel your pain on the "getting sick of your own music" syndrome for similar reasons, so I understand how tiresome it gets, but I think eventually it'll become comfortable enough to work through consistently. Your music is definitely worth the effort!

I think Sakuraba's earlier stuff is really great because of his previous experience with progressive rock, makes for an interesting balance when he's forced to work with hardware limitations. I went real heavy on the SNES-verb to match the sound from Star Ocean 1, and I agree it's pretty extreme, but it also has a nostalgic quality to me. Tri-ace was all about showing off their fancy sound compression technology

When it comes to actually finishing music, I think you're right that it'll get easier to work through. I just need waaay more practice to bring up my speed with writing and mixing. I think that was you who posted about that 24 hour challenge to finish a song? That definitely helps, but it's so so exhausting lol

Thanks for listening, and for the kind words!
