I like the goofy sound effects and lively, broadway-like instrumental tracks. The way the vocals were mixed is a bit bizarre. They sound really thin, high-pitched, and over-processed. It’s really hard to make out the lyrics, but maybe that’s the point given the author’s description (?). I like the solos at :45. The mix is otherwise good here, but I wish the drums came through a little stronger. I even think I hear a bit of Johnfn influence at around 1:15 with the synth vibrato. The kazoo solo lived up to expectations, and cemented the goofy, blissful tone of the piece quite well. I like how lively the drums are here, even if you overused the crashes after a while. The modulation at the end worked well enough to tie things together, although I might’ve liked to see a little more development in the composition after a relatively bland bridge at 1:55. Overall, great job with the sound design, melodies, and progression of this one. You definitely took some risks with the flavor and texture of the piece, but by the end I’m (mostly) on board. The vocals might still be a bit much for me. Keep at it, LunacyEcho! ^^

Never played Splatoon, but this is a fun track! Just all around fun to listen to!

LunacyEcho responds:

glad you liked it! I'd totally recommend it, but I'm happy you enjoyed it for reasons beyond nostalgia or vibe-ness heh

OMG WHAT EVEN the kazoo solo was oddly rad and swag wtf how do you even make a kazoo smooth. You unleashed the true power of the magical instrument that
just works with no questions asked.
Also top tier description.
Oh yeah this is some quality punk.
Please for the LOVE OF GOD, release the unedited lyrics so the world collapses in laughter

LunacyEcho responds:

thanks for the kind words! i think im gonna leave the original lyrics an unsolved mystery for now tho ;)

i like the intro

A̶U̶G̶H̶ (removed even though it does not technically violate copyright laws but just to be safe)

This brings back many fun memories because I played Splatoon competitively for a couple years. This is awesome, and you really nailed the splatoon vibe.

I love the solos. One of the melodies reminds me of something you played at Guitar Center.

How did you make the vocals sound like the ones in Splatoon?

LunacyEcho responds:

ooooh didn't know you played splatoon!! that's so awesome haha, glad you liked the vibe

and yes! the main melody is one that i'd been sitting on for a while, and i was totally noodling on it at guitar center—i'm pleasantly surprised you noticed :D

okay so the vocal thing is a little complicated and i followed a youtube tutorial—you pitchshift a normal vocal track (logic has a thing that also lets you adjust the formant/overtones), EQ it so that it's limited to a thin band around the 1k range, then use an autofilter to oscillate the resonance

tbh i don't know what half those words mean but this video explains it pretty well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVA48I2n-qQ
