Warcraft II: The Tides of Darkness (Orc 2) [20A3/MMC5/N163/SN5B]

I rarely see any covers of old Warcraft 2 music, which makes me sad. So I took the task of making a cover of one of the best songs from Warcraft 2.
also, my first song on the new forums

This is AWESOME! I'd like to see the entire soundtrack done this way!

Man, how can you do add various channels?

Great to hear a classic like this one! Great use of all the channels too. Only comment is that the first three namco channels specifically are interacting in such a way that they create high frequency content that isn't very pleasing to my ear. Everything else is pretty spot on! I only wonder how long this took you... I'd imagine you transcribed the piece first or were you able to find a score?

Using 8 Namco channels makes it sound really bad, use 6 channels instead.
