[2a03] Supremacy - Title Theme

Postby TheNoobHunter » Thu Feb 02, 2017 6:25 am

Here's a cover of Jeroen Tel's Supremacy for C64. I tried to keep this as accurate to the original (no pwm obviously). I wanted this to sound like how Jeroen Tel would've done it if he had done a straight conversion when composing Overlord. Making this has taught me that square wave kick drums are woefully underused. Anyway, enjoy and let me know what you think.

Wow, this is great. I agree with you about squarewave kicks. They can sounds really good, at least how you do them. Great work!

Trust me, when you start using square wave drums, there's no going back.

Pretty good cover. I tried making a cover a long time ago, but like everything else I make it was bad. Your cover is way better.

Wow, I didn't excpect a cover of this song! Good choice!

I really enjoyed it. My only gripe is that the triangle thing that is present in frame 0x16-0x21 is an octave lower than in the original. It kind of takes over the role of the bassline (normally the notes you put in Pulse 2 should be the bassline) and doesn't sound right. So I made an small edit that fixes this issue.

But other than that, it's pretty great! Well done!

Hi! I'm not really active here anymore but I still make music. Nowadays I mostly make dubstep with emphasis on good melodies and chord progressions.
