[2A03] - Rusty - I'll Destroy Your Mind (Castlevania 1 Style)

Hey drillers!

Back to making covers, I covered the boss theme from the game Rusty for the PC-98. This song might sound good for a shmup game, but still for a Castlevania game.

Re: How do I make catchy melodies?

I often recognize the leitmotifs of Theme of Eastern Story and some melodies of Love-Colored Magic. His more common note patterns such as the one I listed above and a large majority of his songs are written in A Major.

Re: How do I make catchy melodies?

I've made a lot of covers of themes from Touhou games, I was just simply testing them to see how it would sound on the Namco C140, which is a sound chip found in the Namco System 2 arcade board.

How do I make catchy melodies?

Hey drillers! I just want to ask you a question here. I'm making an indie arcade shmup series called Chuhou Joutai (which translates to "the middle state"), which combines the gameplay elements of Touhou Project and Bloons Tower Defense . The default soundtrack will be in NES style, but wi...

Re: [2A03] - Don't Go On Me!

I covered only a few Touhou songs on here. I covered a lot of Touhou songs in OpenMPT. For the sixth to ninth installments, it was just a test to see how they would sound on the Namco C140 hardware, which is a sound chip in the Namco System 2.

Re: [2A03] - Don't Go On Me!

Give me a challenge: tell me to compose a tune using the normal aspects you provide when composing great game soundtracks in FamiTracker. With your edit, I will mix it in with the original as the second part of the song.

Looks better, but you made a little mistake in the second part. Apparently, you didn't close the decrescendo (A0x effect). I fixed it for you.

Re: [2A03] - Driller's Dream ~ Hacked Dream

I know it doesn't sound that great, as it's only the main menu theme. I know a lot about music theory through a music appreciation class I took last year, and I know almost all the keys I write in. You suggested adding more vibrato, but what things should I add or remove to make it sound better?
