EarthBound - Battle Against a Weird Opponent (VRC6)

Postby Bramble » Sat Apr 09, 2016 3:48 am

Hey everyone! I came across some EarthBound fansong and it reminded me a lot of this song, so I decided to cover it! I honestly have never finished EarthBound, but I really really need to! This song is really.. weird, as the name implies haha. A lot of random stuff is happening in the first part, like that phone-ringing sound and the ambiance at different parts. And yo, this is the first cover I used triangle drums or an 0xx command! I'm learning people! The bass and percussion was a bit hard to get by ear, but I hope I did a decent job! Let me know what you think and I hope you enjoy!

This is a pretty good cover. I do think that the lead should have used a higher duty cycle (6 or 7 maybe). The triangle drums are great! (didn't think that just a pitch slide down would be so good for a bass drum, but what do I know?) All things considered, this is a well-made cover. Good job!

Thanks! And yeah, you're right, duty 7 sounds better, so I updated it. I made the whole thing in 5 and then listened through all 8 choices and picked 2, but 7 really does sound better!

Indeed! I imagine if someone made a Mother 2 port for NES (and used VRC6), this is what some of the battles would sound like.

Love it with duty cycle change. You did a fantastic job!
Btw, let's hope someone hacks a Mother 2 port for the NES! ;)
