Pushing Onwards [N163] [WIP]

Postby beachbum811 » Wed Nov 02, 2016 12:52 am

Hey, anyone remember VVVVVV?
That was a thing.
(Alas, I was introduced to the 3DS version, and apparently people who bought it on Steam got a level editor... :cry: )
This FTM was sitting around on my computer, and then I started working on it again.
It went from 1/8 of the way done to 1/7 of the way done. :|
Pushing onwards.ftm
Here it is

MY THOUGHTS:
- This song is really popular. I search it on youtube and find high quality rips, piano renditions, and yes, Famitracker covers. And I search it on the forums - Nothing! That's weird.

- UPDATE on that point... It's on the old forums.

- If I could go through to the end with this, it would be my biggest project by far, and I'm not even famous or skilled anything.
- I will probably have to add 2 or 3 more N163 channels, so goodbye clear sound quality.
- I'm trying to get as close to 1:1 as possible. It would seem as if the song consists of a couple square waves, like six 25% pulse waves, and high-quality MIDI drums.
- SPEAKING OF THE DRUMS. I am not the best at DPCM'ing, but with this I tried really hard, probably too hard, and am moderately proud of myself.
- That said, it will forever bother me that Pattern 02 of the DPCM is too quiet. Oh well.
-Also, I wasn't very efficient with the DPCM space. I probably won't run out anytime soon, but I could replace 'kick+snare' with 'whoosh-snare' and a Yxx
- I guess I could make a triangle kick, but, y'know, the DPCM kick is already imported and everything...
- The Noise Crash Cymbal sounds pretty bad
- I could import some cymbals for DPCM, but it would be weird...
- I will have to go back and make certain parts more accurate. I made a few patterns as placeholders - the correct notes are there, but they require some 4xy and Qxy action.

This is pretty good, so far! :)
Sometimes the counterpoint, bass can be too loud, so you'll need to turn them a bit for these patterns. Also, I don't know how to feel about the DPCM drums. Maybe I don't remember well, but I think the original had shorter drums. These are a bit too long. Otherwise, this is really good!

On a side note, if you ever finish this, will you also do a cover of "Pushing Gaywards", the ultimate parody of this song that even the original composer approves of? Or should I be the first to do that? :D

Never heard of it.
I looked it up.
I don't get it, so...
Well, if I finish, you can use it.

Well, it's just some clip from a gay porn movie, remixed into "Pushing Onwards". It's weird, random and funny, that's all
