It's been 4 whole months since I've posted anything? Well then, let me rectify that real fast...

BAM!





This was my 3-parter return to my 8-Bit remixing, thanks to a little help from a very good friend~ Since I am so heavily into rock music I decided I should challenge myself by remixing some rock songs. And what video game series does it better than Sonic? (Purely rhetorical, answer that and I'll kill you.) It took a lot of listening and debating which ones I liked most, but eventually I settled on Green Forest, Speed Highway, and Rooftop Run.

So let me break it down right here. Each song used the same basic framework; 2A03 pulses doing rhythm guitar, Triangle and Sawtooth were the bass, Noise and DPCM doing the only thing they can (drums), and the VRC6 pulses doing lead guitar. Rooftop Run is the special case as it also had a violin sound with the regular pulses. It took a hell of a lot of close listening, as sometimes the instruments were so garbled all I heard was noise. And, at times, that WAS the effect I wanted. But other times, like for Rooftop Run's bass, things were so garbled I could barely hear the track. Thankfully it all came out in the end into 3 masterpieces~

It was supposed to be in order of increasing quality, but I still like Green Forest more than Speed Highway. So now I guess it's just in order of length. My favorite is definitely Rooftop Run, so many good memories with that song. I believe it's the best thing I've done yet.

Oh, and here's an extra for that, too. Rooftop Run sounds really different when you isolate certain tracks.

I seem to have some sort of affinity for Victory Road. I felt if I had to show this to anyone or upload it anywhere, it'd have to be first. No matter how much I pretend to dislike being here~

Ah-hem, anyway, I'm here because you ALL should know what day it is. It's the North American release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, which is important to me because I'm North American (but also not important because I'm not buying it for another week but whatever.) So to celebrate, enjoy this, the final Wii Fit Trainer drawing you guys'll see from me.



I might do another, maybe by request, but as for original ideas I'm done and dry. This was going to be in color at first, but the details are far too fine and I'm sure I'd mess them up. And black and white is my native thing, so I consider it a classic. Enjoy smashing everyone, and don't forget, stay fit!

Hmm... I don't post here too often anymore. I mean, after all, it's been well over a year. So what brings me back to my favorite little thread? Well... read on...

This... is not all that good. XD But it was my first time experimenting with FamiTracker, and I wanted to do something sorta simple. The only thing I really like is the bass, which I also messed up, so... don't say anything about this.

But this song was still pretty difficult to do and I'm never going to try it again, not even in another 6 months.

I did the whole thing without looking at the old one, so it was almost like starting all over. This version has added guitar and complex drums along with the reworked Square and Bass. Now I'm gonna take me a pretty long break from doing music stuff. Either 2 weeks or another 6 months.
So... I decided to go back on my word and I totally did it again. But it's 2 years later, are my old words even valid anymore? Ah well, here's the fresh blood.


To anyone who happens to not stalk my Facebook profile (Which I hopefully assume is everyone), I've officially started what I call "a new era of FamiTracker." I'm beefing up my style and I wanna be just like my idol one day... and I'm doing all I can to get there! So for the occasion, I thought it would be sappy and totally freakin me if I took it back all the way to where it began. And I just found a mostly-empty file for this remix just sitting in my flash drive, waiting to be completed. It was fate.

You should all know this song by now so I won't go too deep into what I did. I just used a new DPCM set (that I sampled myself~), completely reworked Noise, the typical Triangle + Sawtooth subbass, distorted guitar with VRC6 pulses, and that oh so recognizable square.

Now, hold me to my word, guys. I WILL NEVER TOUCH THIS SONG EVER AGAIN...
...
Unless I can somehow sample in Roxie saying "Dogars"... now there's a thought...

Ahahaha~

Seeing how this specific song grew from the past two years is quite adorable. Your 2 years of strenuous effort has become a marvelous piece that will last forever. I certainly hope you're proud of yourself.
