Y'know, I wasn't intending to make anything today, but listening to a bunch of the Pixel Day submissions has inspired me to sit down in front of FL Studio and have a go at it. I love that about NG, it's like a constant feedback loop of creativity.


Every single element in this track was made out of the basic chip-tune ingredients: triangle, square, saw and pulse waves + a noise oscillator. Of course I lubed them up with a bunch of effects, tons of reverb, delay and the likes to give it that OOMPH.

Wow, this is really cool. The drums are very cool. Keep it up :D

I loved when the 3/4 feel with the drums kicked in, I was expecting something else and that got me invested. The chords are nice, and the synths floating in and out all over the stereo field was a nice dreamy touch

My boy got that frontpage!!! This is a bop

lol, happy pixelday!

Glad you decided to participate.
Mayhaps with less reverb you could fit all sorts of aux sounds into the mix? You could try playing with arps next time to get some more of those classic video game sounds. Arpeggiators ran at quick speeds give you nice full VG sounds. Some sweeping sine wave synths with high portamento or pitch bends could make bird like chirping atmoshpere.

I don't want to focus on that kind of stuff though because the last thing I want is to come off as critical. The track is nice and relaxing. Doesn't have the polish of a producer like Albegain but I can hear the passion in this. You got a nice waltz 3/4 tempo going. That's not a natural time signature for most people but I always love it when people gravitate to it. Absolutely lovely Ara <3

Oh yeah I def could've done more. I kinda threw this together to cram it into the timeframe of pixel day and I didn't take the more iconic chiptune sounds into account. I'll write this down for the next pixel day lol.

awesome
