Y'really jumped into this weeklybeats thing guns blazing. The short, drum-less bridge with the harmonized bits is really nice and triumphant sounding.

YO onemanbanders U N I T E

This is great - I like your drumming.  The ping on your ride cymbal sounds really good.  And that china cymbal sounds great - glad you used it sparingly.

Did you put reverb/delay on the famitracker when mixing it into the track?  I have MIDINES and would like to mix it with drums -any tips would be greatly appreciated.

This is an excellent track and I love the track title. smile

Hey, thanks. As far as mixing NES with live drums...I usually boost the highs on the drum track so that they are not so dull in comparison to the naturally shrill tones from the square channels. And no...no reverb or delay on the Fami parts--just a dual channel delay "trick" inside of the tracker. I use the ride bell as an accent far too much. wink
