If you want to use it, I would appreciate donating $10 to my PayPal. Consider it a license fee, but you can use it for free if you insist. If you do use it, you must credit me.

Thank you!

Great song. The snes sounds make it feel very familiar and nostalgic, but the fact it's 16-bit doesn't take away from the quality at all. Only few composers manage to have that effect on me. David Wise being one of those few.

ade-syndicate responds:

That's incredibly flattering, thank you!!! Having modern tools at your disposal rather than coding music makes the process MUCH simpler and straightforward.

David Wise in particular had to jump through a lot of hurdles to create the music that he did for Super Nintendo. Nerdwriter did a video essay on Aquatic Ambiance from Donkey Kong Country. In that essay, he explained how Wise meticulously cut and sampled a droning filter sweep in order to adapt it to SNES hardware. Something like that can be done in a few simple clicks these days, but back then required David Wise five weeks of work to pull off.

Great instrument selection. Very soft for the ears

Really neato, chill and mysterious =P
