Sunset Rush & Sundown Showdown (VRC6)

It's been awhile since I've put anything up here, but that's mostly having to do with business and graduation. Here are two tracks, the first (Sunset Rush) being a bit more frantic/straightforward (rushing to get to the boss), and the second (Sundown Showdown) a dramatic swing take on the former (th...

Re: Sonic CD JP Boss - MMC5 (BETA)

Like several have said ahead of me, the sampling here is immaculate.

Re: Clash with the Thunder King (VRC6), Complete

You could just post them in this thread! I enjoyed reading the ones for CrestCurse. Can do! I won't provide much introduction here, because I've already probably written too much. 1. MechaGrapefruit Logo Same as it was in CrestCurse, wanted to make something Capcom-esque. 2. Title Wanted something ...

Re: Triode's Last Stand (VRC6)

0E to the end seems melodically to be a little bit unmotivated - the VRC6 Pulse 2 ends frames on some really anticlimactic notes, and there's some embellishing here with vibrato/volume crescendoes that could make this section a little more interesting. This might also be a personal opinion, but the ...

Re: Unnamed Game Soundtrack (VRC6)(BETA 0.5)[WIP]

Hey, just gave this a listen. There's some pretty cool stuff here - I'm really a fan of that first boss theme in particular. A few general thoughts (and if you want more specific notes, I'm glad to give them, though if not, I'll take no offense - I'm no expert here): a couple factors are contributin...

Re: Clash with the Thunder King (VRC6), Complete

It's good to be back - three jobs get to be a pretty busy time. Thanks for making an .nsf file for it, Teuthida (I also didn't know that particularly fun fact about my favorite Romanian dictator). For some reason, my Windows emulator has issues doing that with Famitracker. Anybody have any comments ...

Clash with the Thunder King (VRC6), Complete

Well, here it is. This OST was a blast to write. While I did get stumped on a few tracks (struggles with the central melody of The Dancing Dark, my computer bricking immediately after completing Rising Gravity, and almost every aspect of Floodwater), the experience was pretty fantastic start to fini...

Re: Clash with the Thunder King (VRC6), 6/10ths Finished

Thanks, Teuthida! I like the edit to frame 0A. though I had it start at 14 rather than the beginning of the frame, and I utilized your suggestion for Deus Machinae in frames 13 and 14 - I really like just cutting to the vibrato-heavy solo there twice, and then easing into that final bit. Might still...

Re: Spacey Dungeon OST-4/5 Finished!(2A03)

Some comments: -Volume balancing is too loud on the pulse channels a lot of the time - I was having trouble hearing the DCPM in tracks 2,9, and 10, and it's not because the samples aren't loud enough. It's also drowning out the triangle on a lot of channels, and because some of the melodies are fair...

Re: Clash with the Thunder King (VRC6), 6/10ths Finished

Yeah, I'll probably change Floodwater back to F04 and F01 alternating, I can't really justify why I changed it. Also, Teuthida, I'm not quite sure I understand your recommendation to Trapped! - could you provide another example of what you're suggesting? MagicSpider, the plot I had envisioned was ki...
