Oh shiit that modulation though. Well you definitely nailed the sound you were going for melodically, and your sound design/choices is spectacular! I really like the Tri channel leads, and the faux echo on the sq channel is perfect. I focus on it for bass and drum tones so often that I forget how smooth the triangle sound can be for leads. Anyway, this is one of my favorite tracks from you, great work.

Also let's be fair this is basically 4:20, you can't escape it by adding 1 second son. ;D

In theory. I don't have any actual hardware to test it on, but I can run it in NesTopia if that means anything.

Here's the source file so everybody can see how messily I write and how horrible I am at naming and organising my instruments (seriously I have three instruments called 'bass' and three called 'new instrument' and even one called '?" which isn't helpful.)

edit: put correct file up

congratulations on the win!! a beautiful tune :)

i also did a recording from hardware NES, there's still noise but it might be slightly better quality https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZkIpIALXisRJMv2O6S--_8Pf8KvwXR7z/view?usp=sharing
