I guess this tune is what I consider to be my 2nd real original ever made. Man, I'm slow.

This tune has been in the works for waaaay too long, since summer 2013 if anyone was wondering. Finally, it is done.

Hopefully it is to your liking. I am curious to know what you think about it. (I did it again!!!! 3-in-a-row!!! Woooo!). It isn't very good composition wise, as per usual, but I think I use some fancy techniques at least some of you haven't seen before.

I need to figure out how you guys can actually produce brilliant stuff in less than an hour. This thing here is, in my opinion, not even close to what some of you guys can produce in a few minutes, and I did it in what.... like.... 1 year on and off? Yeah.... in this pace I might be able to produce one tune per year!

Like El Huesudo II once put it: “I can't get anything to sound right these days. Sometimes I wonder... Why do I keep making music? “

Feel free to help a newb out here! Give me some CC. :)

I would like to thank the friendly people over at #famitracker and #botb for helping me with the rendering issues I was having. :D

Have a good one, you loonies!

Don't lose confidence in your ability to make music, and don't you dare alter a single note in this piece.

(..except maybe some of those detuned distorted ones at the start)

Curious, for what it's worth, I can definitely relate.
And also, for what it's worth, I enjoyed this piece of yours. Well done! Don't give up!

Fearofdark, you mean the FM synthesis after the intro? I could never get that to sound in-tune. I have no idea how to do it. I'll mess around with it and see if I get anywhere.

MKSTAR26, I also like GoG. Great website!

DBOYD, don't fret. I won't give up. :)

EDIT: I reuploaded everything. I made some minor volume adjustments and I think I've fixed the detuning. :)

if you can fix the tone of the FM in some of the parts, this is a serious contender

Flaminglog, is that so? I'll have to take another look at the FM then. I think I know which parts you mean. I'm pleased that you think this is a contender. :D

EDIT: Alright, I have fixed all the FM in this song now. It was always 2 or more semitones above what it was supposed to be. It should now sound in tune for the most part. I have also done some minor note adjustments here and there to make it not sound so weird. There are still a few places which sound a bit odd but I guess you can live with it. :P

Thanks to MS for listening through this piece and giving loads of feedback! :D
