Another song for a prospective OST - comments are appreciated, and I do my best to implement suggestions. I think the triplets are slightly imperfect, but I'm on the fence about how ultimately harmful that is - I kind of like the off kilter sound they have.

Fantastic work here! Great job with the bassline, and I like the mixing! I notice you've been using VRC6 more, and you make some really nice use of the extra voices! I love your duty cycle choices throughout the song, and the light vibrato/slight detuning playing on each note adds a nice flavor/depth to the sound design too.

I noticed you end your drum patterns with some variety, although I feel like in general it could use more variety. (I am often guilty of this myself actually, hah) I'd also suggest trying to put a Z00 on every kick/snare note playing on DPCM.

Do you also think you can bump the tempo back to 150 instead of having it at 148? I don't think it's so much the triplets more than it is the song's tempo hiccuping throughout the piece due to uneven tempo/speed values. Most people probably wouldn't notice it, though, so it's probably not a big deal. (Live performers wouldn't be perfectly on tempo either, so I guess there's that too)

Of course, everything I've suggested are personal preferences: I think this song is pretty much solid, and there's not really much to say without altering the style/performance of the song (e.g. instrument choices, using different vibrato values, grace notes/flourishes, etc). I like this song, and I'm looking forward to your future stuff!
