[NES] MainThemeVania

By Mortistar on May 13, 2018 10:35 pm

Week 19! Luckily for this week I actually had a tune ready so no scrambling to get anything done! For this weeks tune I wrote a castlevania-inspired theme for a gamejam! The game unfortunately wasn't finished in time but hey, this is great practice and at the very least works as a portfolio piece eh? wink I was so carried away with going full NES limitations that I forgot to make the waveforms very interesting, this was more of a compositional study. Hopefully if I plug it into LSDJ I can get it sounding a lot more expressive! As always, thanks for listening, all feedback is welcome, and I'll see you next week heart

I reckon you can make it very expressive in FL if you tweaked with automation, some knobs, and maybe a few effects.

Nice work.

Very nice, I like the stuttery rhythm. It's always interesting hearing all of the little ways you vary the tune to keep it interesting. Good job my man heart

Yep! Was still learning how to make authentic sounding NES stuff, I need to test out some trackers to experiment with automation heart

Thanks my man, I got all of my inspiration from old castlevania stuff which has some amazing syncopation heart

Doesn't FL have any sort of that automation?
