(VRC7) DooM - E1M1

Postby RavenousSoothing » Thu Sep 07, 2017 9:55 pm

I'm very proud to show this off, At Doom's Gate from DooM. It took me 4 long months of testing and trying different things, but I think I stayed true to the original while adding in some of my own touches. Give it a look!

It's a decent first cover: all the notes seem correct. However, it suffers from several sound design issues:
All your instruments are at full volume the whole time. This makes it hard for any one part to stand out, and causes clipping on the VRC7.
On the subject of the VRC7, you're severely underusing it. You only use half of its 6 channels. Why not do some channel layering to make the guitar more realistic?
Your final problem deals with your use of Fxx to change the Tempo setting. For various reasons, it's a bad idea to change Tempo instead of Speed. Try using a Groove instead to get the tempo you want from your song.

Ahh, thank you. I think I can do some volume stuff real quick. Some layering would be interesting, maybe another guitar, or some brass. How do I use a groove, exactly? What is that?
