A level theme for an OST on which I'm working - any thoughts are appreciated!

this is really nice! unfortunately, i think this fits under the "yes good m8" category where there isnt much to say about it, but i would suggest editing the volume a bit, the intro sounds a little louder than the rest of the song by a noticeable margin. otherwise, this is a fantastic piece thats written surprisingly well!

Pretty much.

That's good, though, lot's of nice stuff around here lately like this from people who mostly know what they're doing. It's nice to see.

Good work on a solid composition, MechaGrapefruit.

This is great! It sounds really cool! I love what you did between frame 0x06 and 0x07 with the notes, and the thing between 0x09-0x0A where everything just fades out and then comes back.
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.

Hanging 222 effect introduced in frame 0x0A hampers the noise channel on frame 0B and on. As well, the DPCM samples are nigh inaudible.

But this is really catchy! What ollaxe said, pretty much.

The pitchbend at the end of frame 06 is great, and good use of grace notes throughout.

I'm not a big fan of the pause in the middle of the song. It seems to hang a bit too long and it messes up the up-tempo pacing the song has going for it.
