Sputnik Tango

My first attempt with FL Studio. Mixing standard Synth with Harmonics, Modulation and some standard beats.

Just getting warm with that program. This was so much fun to make!

Sputnik Tango is a mixture of Tango, Dance, Duett and Trio with an unusual amount of harmonic changes. The composition consists of simple triangle- and square-synthesizer waveforms as well as the standard beats of FL Studio. It is influenced by the early 8-bit games and reminds of Tetris, Megaman and a tracker titel called "Mamushka".

For your first time with FL, this is pretty solid. The composition is great and I could definitely see this being used in a game here on NG.

Your biggest setback here is the sample selection of the drums . Those default FL drums sound pretty weak. Plus, for this type of track I think you would want some video game-esqe drums since this is a video game track. The Shovel Knight soundtrack is a good example of the type of drums I'm talking about.

All in all, promising work!

Manderby responds:

Thank you very much! I totally agree, the default FL drums are... default. I just did not manage to get a satisfying chiptune beat yet. Still learning the basics. Not all synths are equally suitable for that. Am in the process of composing more songs, Pixelday is the goal. :)

PS: Thank you twice!

It was very good! But why call it a tango? It doesn't even have a 3/4 rhythm.
Maybe Sputnik Folk Dance?

Edit: You're right I messed up the song styles

Manderby responds:

Thank you very much!
Tango is 4/4 or 2/4. I assume what you maybe mean is Waltz. :)

Edit: No prob. Had to check twice myself.
