Count Dylan Von Poodleschmuck

By Kedbreak136 on July 12, 2020 9:42 am

Another week and another pit of inspiration-less despair. Or more accurately there were a few tracks I was kicking around, including a bluesy one and a pirate-themed track but could not make them work out so I ended up with this... thing. Well that got me to practice cheesy choirs at least.

I'm genuinely impressed with how you managed to slide some chiptune into this track.

Being able to put out a musical experiment during an uninspired week is great though; those cheesy choirs are sure to come in handy later down the line. smile

this is incredible. 100% thematic

This is pretty awesome for not having inspiration.  The super low choir is badass.  Love the ending, total super mario castle level vibe.

It takes a while to get where it's going, but once it's there, it nails the landing.

Spoooooooooooky! The perfect Halloween track.

It definitely has that spooky 80's cartoon dracula / nintendo game vibe.  It's a really fun track.

Yeah I think I need to get myself a better VST for choir though. The current one is rather limited.

haha thank you, i was definitely going for that stereotypical video game horror/dark fantasy vibe and what better way to do that than to go with chiptune? Maybe i should have done it mainly chiptune with a break with "real like" instruments.

it's a slow starter indeed and there is really just one section with a few variations. Definitely more a draft of an idea than something well defined. This needs work or plundering for other tracks.

Thank you, going for castlevania/silly vampire cartoons. Duckula was awesome.

Happy just to listen to the intro several times over. smile

Super sweet soundeffects, like the squeaking door and the drip-drops inbetween. Nice poodleschmuck.

Loved the spooky feel to the intro.  From the sfx, high strings, harpsichords you really nailed it.  This could have easily been an intro to something like Tales from the Crypt.  The chiptune ending takes it to a new level though.  Like that scary intro just went inside the box smile  Nice work!

The genre mixing track that moves from a screenplay to indie game and then whams us with the chip tunes. This is awesome. Good work for being uninspired. You inspired me.

So happy I'm not the only Count Dylan Von Poodleschmuck fan around here!  This is a fitting tribute.

Thank you! It's silly what water drip drops can do to a track!

This World would be a better place if everyone could welcome some poodleschmuck into their heart.

I hesitated between doing a gradual transition track by track into chiptune (which is that version) or having an abrupt change with a Scoobidoo kind of sound effect to jump through the mirror. I'll need to try that one though.

Very much a halloween themed soundtrack that tells a story. Really big sound design. I like how it keeps evolving throughout and then into full on gothic 8-bit. Nice!

July 20, 2020 4:03 pm

I've been playing so many vampire themed RPGs lately (Code Vein, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night) that this is totally hitting a spot for me right now haha. What kind of instruments did you use on this one? I think Harpsichord is essential for this kind of thing right?

I used cello, strings and grand piano. The hapsichord was added later to double the piano as it cut much better in the mix than the piano. And then i went into a buch of 8 bit chiptunes free VSTs. smile
