Re: Made an EP

I'm liking quite a few of these! They have pretty neat melodic ideas, and your custom patches do a good job of conveying that 'music to smoke to' mood. Actually, they remind me a little bit of a user that used to come here, LokiStriker (this is a good thing). My main problem with your songs is your ...

Re: VRC7 tutorial

In my opinion, the best way to learn VRC7 instruments is through experimentation. Start with the default custom instrument (or copy one of the preset patches to a custom instrument), mess with the settings, and observe how each setting affects the instrument. Over time, you will not only discover in...

Re: Made an EP

Do you have the source .0cc or .ftm module for these songs? People (including me) will have a much easier time going over and reviewing your album if you do.

Re: [0CC][VRC6+S5B]Super Mario Galaxy - Buoy Base Galaxy

For the most part, I'm a fan of this cover. All the notes seem accurate, and I like your choice of instrumentation. However, I think that your mixing needs improvement. You start everything off at near-maximum volume, so there's nowhere for the song to go after the beginning. I would try starting of...

Re: where to go with this? [n163]

Your riffs are pretty energetic-sounding, and I like how you're experimenting with more complex harmonies. That being said, I think the song gets a little too repetitive, since you mostly repeat the same beats over and over again. Try varying things up; even just changing the volume or voice of a ri...

Re: [VRC6] Mr. Brightside

Hey, this brings back some good memories! I'd say that the biggest problem is your mixing. Everything's extremely loud, leading to important parts like drums getting drowned out. I recommend putting most of your channels at sub-A levels. This will not only help certain parts stand out, but also give...

Re: Starry Night - My first song on FamiTracker

Pretty nice and jazzy first song! I liked your use of samples and the drum beat that comes in later on. However, the song gets very repetitive after a while; that loud and expressive intro becomes boring after the first few times. You might want to also consider using chords other than minor ones.

Re: Imitating Instruments By Ear

Most people don't do instruments by ear; in fact, it' pretty much impossible unless you're some kind of savant. Most people either NSFImport the instruments or use Audacity to look at their waveforms.

As a side note, is there any reason why you need to imitate instruments exactly? Just wondering.
