Happy Pixel Day 2019! I couldn't resist making something this year, though I only had time for something short so I wrote this loop. I think of this track as being a little celebration of 8 bit happiness, using relatively simple sounds, hoping to evoke the feeling of riding a horse across a wide open space. Enjoy :)

Created in Cubase using a few different retro VST's and HalionOne for the supporting percussion sounds in the background.

EDIT: Third place in the contest! Not too bad. Thanks, all :)

Niice really energetic! Loops pretty well too :)

Good thing you didn't resist making something, or we would've really missed out. Now I've read your description it does indeed sound like a horse galloping, because of the rhythm, that sounds a bit like the way the legs move. And I don't just mean the percussion with rhythm. It works well as a loop. Get's better the longer you listen to it, and you hear different things each time. It has a nice spontaneous improvised sound that makes it stay interesting despite it actually staying the same with each play. Somehow you just don't notice. Really helps this song loop.

Thanks! I appreciate your attentive listening, glad you enjoyed it.

You sure this isn't a Kirby tune? ;) Sounds good.

Reminds me of Nes-Snes era Kirby music. Pretty cool
