Hey guys! And today i'm gonna show you a cover of "Bad Apple" (Touhou) that I made using Famitracker 0.4.6

Spoil: I make a new enhanced version that only uses 2A03 but since it's WIP I will not post it here :P

I'd make it a bit more bassy, that's my biggest gripe.

Yeah, the original has really heavy bass, but your cover has none at all, and sounds really empty as a result.

You can actually get a good distorted synth bass sound if you use really low notes on the sawtooth channel, and you can make it sound even better if you double the bass an octave up on another channel. I've attached an edit I made of your cover (in 5.0 beta) as a proof of concept.

Yeah I really love saw tooth for bass.

Thanks for your reviews :) I will try to make it more bassy by removing useless non-bass notes
