HOLY FUCK I CAN'T BELIEVE SOMEONE'S DOING THE EOSD OST AS WELL

IMO the sound design is a bit bland; the noise percussion is static, adding some arpeggios to them could make it more lively, and the pulse instruments could use some vibratos because they tend to be grating sometimes. I would also suggest using lower volumes instead of note cuts because it sounds sudden and unpleasant. I do love the DPCM samples you used.

The covers are decent, but I noticed that some parts would lack fade-outs and others sound empty because of the limited channels. I'd say you use some arpeggios to make illusions of 2 or more notes playing at the same time, which could make the covers sound full. But, if you're not fond of arpeggios, one thing I could suggest is improvise on said empty parts like squeezing in certain elements of the song that blend together, instead of trying to get every thing accurate.

You mean that I make them pitch sweeps in them?

Done. Added some "bends" as well.

I ended up adding note releases instead of lowering the volumes. Otherwise they probably can't be heard well under the drum samples.

Depends on what kind of arps you mean. In right places they sound nice, although I'm not sure where you intended me to use them.

Not sure what you mean by this. Can you give some kind of example?

I'll update the .ftm with these changes once I've finished Septette for the Dead Princess. : )

EDIT: .ftm updated~

I've remixed almost the entire soundtrack in Impulse Tracker format, made in the style of Skaven.
It's the Drillimation Guy!
Musical influences come from Skaven of Future Crew and ZUN.

Added Lunar Clock ~ Luna Dial to the completed tracks

EDIT: Update 2 - Added The Centennial Festival for Magical Girls and added tempo changes to the song and removed unnecessary and/or weird sounding vibratos and bends from earlier tracks.

EDIT 2: Added U.N. Owen Was Her?
