Ha! Got a Sega Arcade spring track in! This time I'm going for a sort of RPG inspired loop. I imagine riding atop a dragon, soaring so high that you reach the edge of the sky and break reality causing the world to flip and invert so that the edge of the sky merges with the bottom of the sea. When you look around you see birds bellow you and whales surprisingly above you in an enclosed canopy of ocean.

The hardest part about making this track for me was the sound balance on the Sega Arcade chip and making sure it doesn't clip, plus using a string sample in the PCM channels for melody. I had to use the 20xx command and kind of tune each note and keep listening to it in order to make sure it hit the right tones and sounded good with the other channels.

This was made using Deflemask 12.1 but it is the "preview" version. I don't know if there are any differences between that and the final version because I have yet to download it.

Some things I was able to do with this tracker that may not actually be possible on the real chip was use fine panning commands to control the volume of the PCM but the format here is Deflemask tracker so if the tracker allows it I'll use it :).

Anyway, I spent a bit more time on this than I thought I would even though it's only a few patterns it loops quite well and the sounds are decently balanced. I hope you guys enjoy, and thanks in advance for listening :D.

WTF someone finally used the 20xy effect in Deflemask! Those samples are fucking boss! This is a nice piece!

Excellent track, stellar work as always brother! This is like a spring time spiritual successor to your winter celtic track.

Magnificent, though it's pretty short though :(

If BotB ever gets its own RPG game, you would be one of the coolest and chillest characters \[T]/

Also nice to see someone else using the stereo volume effects to control the PCM volume too! :)

Thanks RazerBlue6, I agree that it is on the short side but manually tuning those PCM strings kind of made it a bit of a slog to track with so I lost a bit of steam there. If I can think of more to add I suppose I still have plenty of time to add something, but as I am still somewhat new to the YM2151 my guess is that time might be better spent on another category. We'll see what happens. Thanks for the kind words guys. I think my tunes will get longer the more comfortable I get with Deflemask over time :).

This is well put together! I can empathize with you about the 20xx command. Did some tracks with sampled bass/strings and wasn't exactly short work.

This is a different style for you but it's pretty cool! The notes are spot on and the mix sounds great.
