Re: A short loop

Frame 05, with the arpeggiation in the melody, was very welcome. In fact overall the strength of this track IMO is that you do find interesting ways to vary the texture while keeping the same chord progression. That being said, the track is otherwise fairly predictable and too rhythmically 'safe' if...

Re: JOTY - My Nine Lives

It comes off a little too much wall-of-sound to me - there's not enough volume or timbre variation. Having that for the first couple patterns is okay, but by the time pattern 1 came up it was sounding a little monotonous. It's also a little repetitive rhythm-wise - the little syncopated chords in pa...

Ghoul Dance [N163]

N163 doesn't always seem to be all that popular. Well, I love working with it. Here's my latest track, a short manic upbeat piece. I didn't really invent any new sounds/instruments for this, I just grabbed a bunch from my previous tracks and tried to find new ways to use them. Ghoul Dance.ftm [made ...

thoughts dancing (2a03)

Hi! This is my latest chiptune that I've done for battleofthebits.org, and I really feel like I'm getting more creative in my use of the basic 2a03 channels. I wasn't really sure where I was going with it while writing the first few frames, so when it ended up kinda pop-y I just thought 'well I gues...

Notice Me (N163)

I had the idea for the opening chords floating around in my head for a while, and this piece is just what resulted from it :)
I was feeling in a bit of a weird/humorous mood for a lot of it, which I think was appropriate for the piece.

Meteor Shower (N163)

A piece I had some fun writing on my Sunday off. Written for WCXII on battleofthebits.org.
I normally avoid using all 8 N163 channels but for this one I thought to heck with it.

Re: [2A03] Digital Pupper

The song is a little too repetitive for me overall though - the same chord progression can get a bit weary after a while Depends though. Some songs use the same chord progression throughout the most or entire song. Oh certainly, but they will often find other places to find variation. Chord progres...
