This is the ending song of the Bonus levels, I stole a few instruments and stuff. Hope you enjoy. It actually sounds like the real game!

By that, I mean that you seem like somebody that couldn't take criticism for a legitimate mistake you made. It hurts because I made the same mistake in my early life in Famitracker. Not only did I learn from it, but I also had cleared it all up with the moderator (jrlepage, you might remember that).
...but hey. Am I here to judge your character of your work? Let's have a listen to all three covers.
Firstly, the Ghost House. The harmonies wit the original really scream "expansion chip", which would also avoid some of the archipelagic clashing I feel. That's also not mentioning the extreme lack of Triangle control. The cover itself is decent--you seem to know the notes enough and it shows.
Forest Illusion is a mess. Same problems I have above but completely choppily done and with even worse volume control. Next.
Bonus Game. Okay, needs more bass, but JESUS that's pretty damn close. Where was THIS? This is genuine! Sure the notes cut pretty quickly, but that could be fixed quickly.
I have a conjoined complaint with the first two. To begin with, with how a song like these could be, echoes and harmonies are absolutely key when making songs like these work. Ghost House wishes it had two more Pulse Channels (and I'd even argue that the sawtooth would be fantastic to add for a bass, harmony, or whatever channel to fill in any possible voids--leave no stone unturned in creativity). Forest of Illusion suffers from a "bootleg effect". Where it sounds decent in its original format, taking it to another makes it sound choppy, sudden, and it brings up other problems that wouldn't have been noticed in the original--not necessarily your fault, perhaps, but that's where the genius mind comes into play. You can play with the effects and volumes to no end and find the best sounding possibilities. This is why I particularly enjoy Speed 1; playing around with the smallest bits of a song can reveal much as to how a song's potential can be optimized. For Forest of Illusion, it's as easy as lowering the volumes, creating subtle echoes, and making each note's transition smooth, even if the transition is to volume 0--something like 201 for the effect goes a long way, as that very slow note transition can sound better than one first believes.
I'm not saying that these were dead on arrival. I AM saying that these should have had more time, effort, and thought into them in order to be the best like no on ever was and I totally did not steal that line from Pokemon. In short, you have room to improve--so JUST DO IT!
