Wait, is this really procedurally generated? Or is it just really long?

Nope. The song is created in GoatTracker, which is the number one reason why it isn't procedurally generated. The last part has a single channel that I added more material to than the others, thus allowing it to wander off on its own until it comes full circle ten minutes later. I have a few others that I intentionally did not sync up the loop points. Actually, the loop point went wrong when exporting to SID, so I actually had to hack the loopback points to get them to sound like the original I had made in GoatTracker! That was because I was using R1 commands, which were removed when exported. I have a few other C64 tracks that I applied non-matching loop points to, and they've gone on much longer without matching up. I use a text editor to determine for myself how many times it takes to come full circle. This one took eight repetitions of the channel 1 looping before it met channels 2 & 3 at the start.

<Flaminglog> this song is like you spend your entire life trying to come up with new ways to get into space and then you finally succeed and you're in space and you're just like "shit, now what?"

<Flaminglog> i feel like by enduring the journey we have all grown as human beings
<Flaminglog> ready to slay the dragon at the end of the cave
<CaptBeard> Flaminglog i am happy
<CaptBeard> something in life we get stuck
<CaptBeard> forever
<CaptBeard> you never get out
<CaptBeard> you just die.
<CaptBeard> that is the meaning behind the song.
<CaptBeard> you get stuck in life and die.
<CaptBeard> the end.

You have a good idea at the heart of all this, particularly like the sync sounds.

SID does subtle very well, this makes me think of the Wally Beben Tetris music:

I did indeed have an idea to use the sync sounds, and even some ring modulation. I used the filters as well, but I decided that those shouldn't be the main point of the song at all.

I knew there was a good reason I favourited this. Do you have any other sid's banging about? I heard you were a goattracker user before schism!

I think I misread the dates for the oldest song files I created... my first Schism Tracker song was from December 2005. I have three Goat Tracker files that I created (all of them unfiniehed, and the third one in particular being abandoned due to a serious bug). They were created in August of 2006 (I misread the date as being from 2005, hence why I stated that).

All three were never finished, and two of them are covers (one of them from Super Mario RPG). One of them is a cover of an even older song that I created in MIDI through Harmony Assistant.

That does mean I never created any .sid files in the first place of those three.

Let's start things off with the source GoatTracker .sng file for this entry, shall we? ^_^
