Cave Story: Last Battle [VRC6] [2A03]

Link to original song:

This one is as accurate to the original as I could get it. The only liberties I took were a softer note release and added echo. I actually like the versions without DPCM samples better, seeing as the samples didn't come out as clean as I would like.

Maybe after I finish my full OST cover of Ace Attorney 1, I'll cover every Cave Story song next.

Hmm...covering every Cave Story song... That's going to be quite an effort! If you do that, I'd pick another chip besides VRC6, considering that DynamiteMan.exe already did that using that chip. Maybe VRC7? Also, if you do that, could you please cover the beta songs(People of the Root, Pier Walk, etc.)? Nobody else has done those.

As for the actual cover, I like it a lot! As someone who obsessively listens to the music of Daisuke Amaya, I can tell that these are both faithful arrangements. Keep it up!

Wow this is so cool, you managed to do really good not losing any of that epic feeling on the 2A03 version! This has got to be one of my favorite songs in Cave Story, for sure! And I agree with Teuthida, seeing a VRC7 arrangement of each song would be pretty interesting, but even if you went with VRC6 I think you could do a fantastic job! Keep up the good work!
