Re: WaluigiTime64's Compositions: Generic East (Map) WAV

I should probably use more (unpitched) percussion in my songs. Gives a better sense of rhythm.
Or pitched but way off XD could be interesting!

Original Compositions:
 - Generic East (Map): WAV
I like this one a lot! Really gets a good east vibe across. Depends what you're going for but using some Asian scales for chords and harmony stuff will help with the eastern feel. Try the Yo scale (my fav).

I might try out a few for later Generic East songs.

Two more map themes, except from the same world:

Original Compositions:
 - Generic Ocean (Map 1): WAV
 - Generic Ocean (Map 2): WAV

All of these map themes are going to give off as much atmosphere as I can possibly make them. (Map 1) is a bit weird, because it mixes beach and old-timey town together, while (Map 2) might've overdone it.

I prefer map 2 for some reason.... maybe it's more map-like? Also, have you ever used a minor chord 2? I feel like that might be a waluigitime staple.

Generic Ocean has always had that major chord 2. Only in a complete minor key arrangement would it have a minor chord 2.

Woah, it's been ages:

Original Compositions:
 - Generic Space (Unknown Section): WAV

This actually doesn't relate to anything. It's purely to show off the motif. Despite that, I think it's one of the most generic mixes I've ever made, which is oddly fitting. It's also very different from the rest of the songs.

Something about chiptune:

Original Compositions:
 - Fire Stage (Unused): WAV

My first FamiTracker creation. The composition was actually made a while ago for this exact purpose, but I hadn't gotten around to it until just now.

For the record, I probably won't make very many FamiTracker pieces, simply because I'd rather be somewhat unique, and I feel like there's only so much I can do with chiptune before it becomes repetitive.

Turns out I didn't get bored of it that quickly:

Original Compositions:
 - Generic Grass (Main): CHIP

Really shows the difference in quality from when I first made a FamiTracker piece. I tried for the extremely generic "retro-inspired indie game" feel.

:D Thank you!

Don't say that. Just keep doing it and you'll get somewhere. This isn't my second chiptune project, it's probably my 7th, so it didn't just come "naturally".

Don't feel bad, Cash; I'm pretty bad.

I love this one. It reminds me of kirby more than anything else, very bouncy, boopy and quick. Good stuff.

For some reason, in the few bars from 1:16-1:21, my ear wants the bass to chromatically descend by semitones (regardless of harmonies). Seems like it might be fun?

I had a look at this. The problem was that it made the triangle sound a bit more prominent than it's supposed to be in that section, and it added more fast notes which altered the flow a bit. I actually agree, in that my ear also felt that some bits would've been better sliding down, but that happened.
