Mega Man 7 - Shade Man [5B]

A cover of Shade Man's theme from Mega Man 7. Sunsoft 5B expansion, NTSC 64 Hz.

The 2A03 instruments are somewhat stylistic of Konami's music produced for the NES and Famicom (the snare in particular). The selection of the Sunsoft 5B expansion was because I was thinking about Famicompo Pico 2015 Cover Entry 166, though ultimately this is really nothing like that.

Soundcloud upload.

The FTM, developed in 0CC-FamiTracker 0.3.13, can be found here. Your FamiTracker mixer should have the Sunsoft 5B chip be +8.7 db in relation to the Ricoh 2A03; I personally set the 2A03 to -6.2 db and the 5B to +2.5 db. Avoiding clipping is up to you.

heh, i got the ftm to this earlier. im just going to rehash and say that this is a pretty nice composition, but i wish there was some cool 5B percussion, as that stands out as a defining feature of the 5B chip compared to others imo.

I quite like this! Even if Shade Man was never a favorite of mine...
