Re: Thunder Helix (VRC6)

I gave this piece a couple of listens, but as I listened to the song (as well as the Crest Curse soundtrack) I realized I'd probably end up saying exactly what I said in the following post, minus the thing about instrument timbres: http://forums.famitracker.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1802#p14461 Ho...

Re: Casino tune

This is great! I really like the melody/progression and the piano-like Namco synths you're using here! I also like how you used the Triangle as a woodblock of some sort: That's actually a novel idea, and I think there should be more songs experimenting with that! I'm not sure how strong you intended...

Re: Plant Man (0.5 beta)

Hmm, even after the edit, I feel the percussion is really out of sync with the bassline's rhythm. Try pushing Insert twice after the very first E-# of the noise channel in the song, and hopefully it should make a lot more sense. (The gap created from pushing Insert should probably be filled with a k...

Re: Lapis Jungle (N163)

Honestly, this is already really good. The melody is fantastic, the harmonies flow well, the bass also flows well, drums are varied, and the whole thing just gets you pumping. There are a few things I want to address, though. Your instruments are very similar in timbre (duty cycle, waveform, etc) an...

Re: Plant Man (0.5 beta)

Thanks! Consider grabbing the NSF soundtrack and mute some channels when listening, or even slow down the song if you can't catch the faster notes! Well, that's what I did. I downloaded the nsf and separated the channels into audacity. I guess listening to the song over and over again was making me...

Re: Hold Up! (2A03)

Hat's off to you on this one: I'm a huge sucker for this instrumental. I love the overall jumpy/silly mood of the track! Great sound design, by the way. Those 7-bit PCM samples are really nice too! Do you mind if I critique the track? Thanks! Go right ahead, I love to hear your judgement/feedback. ...

Re: Plant Man (0.5 beta)

Overall a good cover! Great job with the sound design: I can see you're using note release and even de-tuning some of the accompaniment to avoid bad phasing. Your melody is pretty much perfect, and the drums sound great too (I can't recall the original at the moment, but they definitely work here. M...

Re: Don't Think About It [2A03] [Beta 0.5]

I'm definitely feeling the intended mood here, and I'm impressed you wrote something so long! I also really like some of the stuff going on around 37-3A: There are some really cool ideas at that part! It sounds like you were trying to go for a jazzy vibe here, do you mind if I drop a few suggestions...

I've included a modified version explaining what I mean. I hope this helps! Thanks! Those are some really good suggestions and thank you for that edit to give me some direction! Once I get the song updated I'll edit this post with it. Thanks again! Sure thing! Actually, I forgot to add one more thi...
