Whoa was not expecting this
Could use some variety in not having the melody stay on V01 the entire way through. Also noise channel could be spruced up a little with 0xy/1xy/2xy/Qxy/Rxy effects.

This is really good! I really enjoyed it.
I have a few "imperfections" I would like to point out though.
First off, there are a lot of clashing notes, partly due to the echos lacking any detune compared to what they're echoing. Try placing a slight detune with the Pxx effect in the places where the same note is playing on multiple channels and it should sound a bit cleaner.
I also feel that the bass is too quiet, especially the triangle. You really have to listen closely to hear the bassline, which is kind of annoying. I suggest you lower the volume of the pulse channels. I also think the DPCM drums you're using are a bit muddy and a bit loud. The fact that they're so muddy makes it hard for the lower end of the bass to come through, especially on speakers.

As I said, I really like the song. You did a really good job. The melodies are great, the chords are great and the instrumentation, though simple, works really well in my opinion.
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.

Thanks,i'll take what you said into consideration. I had a lot of trouble while making this song when i was matching the chords to the melodies so it wouldn't clash.
