You know what? I'm feeling generous right now, so I'll torture you guys with some more of my older stuff. Enjoy, I guess? If you're into that sort of thing?

Of Devious Machinations VRC7.ftm
Okay, this one isn't that old, I only made it on February 27 of this year, but can you really say it's that good? I had to use the built-in VRC7 patches because FM is the bane of my existence, not to mention I was unaware of the fact that VRC7 volume is exponential. Oh well. At least the noise channel sounds decent.

Chemical Plant Zone VRC6.ftm
This is the first time I ever experimented with DPCM samples. It does not sound good at all without the noise channel accompanying it, and the overall instrument choice is horribly lackluster. July 5, 2014.

DRMBM 2-Player VRC6.ftm
Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. There was an alarming lack of remixes of this song on YouTube, so on the fateful day of July 7, 2014, I decided to take it upon myself to make one. Filled with clashing and volume issues and bad DPCM/noise combos galore.

Here's a bucket of crap for you all to play with! It's almost like play-dough, it just smells worse and contains more bacteria!

Hi! I'm not really active here anymore but I still make music. Nowadays I mostly make dubstep with emphasis on good melodies and chord progressions.

And this, guys, is everything wrong you can do in famitracker and probably music in general...

...and it's only two months old. :oops:

I made this thinking "this thing is sooo easy to handle, I'm probably a chiptune expert!". So I jumped right into this soft by making a VRC6 (!) original (!!) track with a whopping 20 minutes of command learning.

Let's see:
- Triangle channel used for anything while also setting a duty cycle for it
- 2xx everywhere causing massive crackles in the track
- KICK SNARE KICK KICK SNARE all day long...
- The only purpose of hats are to accompany every kicks and snares
- Let's add a random drop in the middle of the track because why not
- "Hey, that release function seems cool, let's add it to every instrument!". But no trace of any release note anywhere
- Blank instrument isn't blank, I don't even know what I was thinking
- Overall messy track with a lot of clashing notes
- Track goes sonic fast after the loop because of poor Vxx knowledge
- Severals useless effects
- Bassline is too repetitive? Let's just change 1234 to 1243!

Then one day, I told myself "hey let's check what all these guys are making on this forum", and the end writes itself.

One learns from mistakes, and I learned a lot.

Now, I'm only making 2A03 tracks and easy cover to train myself and I'm still nervous about posting anything.

Well, snowolf, I kind of like this song.
But don't you mean "KICK TOM KICK KICK TOM?"

Yup, I think this track could have been average with a better knowledge of this soft. But as it is, it's a broken mess that I just listen sometimes to have a laugh. :D

Oh my glob! Was I like... THIS? Well, here is my older stuff from 2012-2013. Most of my songs are my original pieces of work, except for the AVGN Remake.

Well, I'm not sure if I've really been using FamiTracker for long enough to have any "old, embarrassing crap" exactly...
But I do have several incomplete and generally pretty terrible covers that I had a go at some time ago.
