Comments Recieved

Wow!!! That's a heck of a track. Cool laughing sample. : ) Great job on this.

Yes!!!

Epic song, Nathan!

You know you wiped the floor with everyone else :) Way to go man.

this its the best!!! love it!! i can play this song a lot of times!! congrats!! great composition on this!

Freaken awesome!!!

[100 percent emoji, Thumb and index "good shit right here" emoji]

It has a nice funk to it.

This has really cool emotions. You have excellent control of different formats.

Diggin' it man. This was a great entry :).

Exactly the type of chiptune I love. I loved the Triangle usage there. Great job.

Very emotional. Those are some nice sounding chords.

honestly like this more than the original, that part 3 minutes in is to die for

This dw- has made a pretty damn cool song. You have in turn made a damn cool cover. I'd say y'all both did a great job.

The OG and this cover are both very nice.

im not a fan of the art, but this is such a great album!

OMG!! <3 nice job!!

That's pretty damn great!

yeah man, entertainment to the max

Congrats man!!! Definitely worth it.

fuck dude 2:45 on took my brain apart, amazing track

I want to know how you are squeezing so many effect out of that program! I am still a noob to LSDJ.

are you sure it's kraid's theme but not Kraid's Hideout (NES) on FamiTracker

do escape from the halberd now

RIP Metaknight. I liked it.

I agree with Wheely. Excellent job :).

So you want some CC ... I think the build up during the fist 36 seconds is pretty slow, I would try to get things a bit faster going. I am not that sure about the part from 0:54 to 1:14, I know you did that because you did not want to repeat the melody from before that fast. I would try to create a longer part between that ... maybe from 0:54 to 1:34 or something like that. I like the tune afterwards a lot. The part that beginns at 2:02 has a nice feel and especially the last section is fun!

Such a great song!

👍 👍 👍sound super 👍 👍 👍

the main theme is pretty grim and grindy and morose! really nice beat, i really like the pulsing fade in/out at ~1.15.. and again ~2.20, sounds great!

Hey bro!!! I definitely think yours should be in place instead of mine. Your music is real. Don't worry about me, it'll probably be ages until my next completed song attempt. :P Hopefully not tooooooooo long though... Always looking forward to your next one. ^_^ Woohoo!!! (Runs into the shadows...)

diggin the stuff around 1:20. great track

I am speechless, those noise waves really pushed me through the intro. I really LOVE the deep basslines a lot ... damn ... 03:25 ... the shit gets serious! The outro was also awesome, that will gonna be a hard week for the others that want to chart. Well played!

Now this is cool! :)

Sick intro, very nice track. Love it !

You've been busy lately. :P I love the really cool effects, like those fade-ins around 1:20, & the way it changes up in different parts. This is very cool.

Bro, this is great!!! All them pulse channels sound really good. Don't know what to cc on this... in my mind, I think stereo. I think some stereo on some of the pulse channels would do nice. Then again, stereo brings in that damn popping & clicking, & you did this nice & clean. Oh, maybe in the first 10 seconds of the intro, have all 4 pulse channels working together to give each other even more cool echo effects or something. Even as it is, this is great.

you should try to simulate something like sea noises by playing around with the volume of the noise channel if that is possible

Ooo, nice. I really like this song. I don't quite hear any Donkey Kong though, but I do hear lots of musical greatness. : )

This really picks up in the end. Sounding good and I love the arps in this.

Lots of great effects in this. Waiting for finished version!!! : )

nice, like all the variations

Yo man, I totally need some of that shit you're drinking. Anyway, seems great so far.

Oh, you made this real nice. It feels emotional.

It's a very nice rendition. I see a kingdom and that could be a very good fanfare. It's quite amazing!

Yeah, this is a nice version. Well done :).

Damn, I really love this version of Sky Sanctuary Zone. It was already a good song, but your interpretation of it made it even better.

Whoa, this is cool. Real nice one man!!!

Oh cool, you're good dude! :D

Delicious stereo arps and bass.

i am still such a fuckin n00b at LSDJ and hearing this makes me cringe at how much effort this actually must have taken....maybe i just dont know what the shit i am doing in lsdj yet? haha either way this is fucking awesome. i really enjoyed this jam.

what Jredd says ... wonderful tune

I don't know the original, but this would make a wonderful credits theme to some sort of rpg. Very compelling :).

Very Nice! Nice use of the noise channel.

cuold you mak it more like mario musik? I lik mrio!

I like the noisework at around 1:05 a lot

:). This is interesting.

well done man, sweet cover

woah, that was some cool stuff you did with LSDJ. Impressive!

*thumbs up* :)

sounds like you sure know your way around the lsdj

you definitely wandered around in a good way some parts good job very legit

"Genres are only good for putting things on shelves" - Some dude on the radio who makes good points

That was pretty interesting all the way through. There aren't many dance tunes that do that. Nice job :).

It's 1:17am in my neck of the woods and I'm sleepy sry not sry.

Always good to hear new PLB :)
Flourish by XenonOdyssey

These are the kind of beautiful, lush textures, and nostalgic melodies that can bring a tear to one's eyes. And it is still one of my favorites.

Your music is very captivating, there is some beautiful writing here

I don't usually listen to this style of music, but I must say this is pretty rad. Very dark quality/textures. Lookiing forward to the final product (y)

You are so good at making creepy ambience. Perfect balance of mesmerizing, terrifying, and intriguing. Also, JESUS those vocal samples. Chills down my spine. Good work dude!

Defnitely enjoying, those drums sound REAL nice

Nothing short of phenomenal. Great job, sir :)
my custom painted gameboy by iloveporcupines

Looks nice! Did you use acrylic paint for the D-pad/buttons?
Mako by ShadyNasty

Oh nice, I remember the guy from astroskeleton posting something about this. Fun tune!

WHOA, nice job! How did you get that wobbly lead at 1:25ish? Is that just panning? Great work again!

If I were a label, I'd release it in a heartbeat. Either way, it's going to be epic!
Face the Unknown by Jayster

This is without a doubt, a fantastic, well-written piece of music. Awesome job, sir. :)

This has a very classic feel to it. Great work on this
kingdoms of madness by oceanpalace

I LOVE the opening chords in this. That lead you have going brings to me this sense of dementia. Overall, good work!
Pinball Palace by PolarBirds

Very upbeat, jazzy style going on here, I love it!

Pretty solid work on this, good job!

I'd say this fits the "cute & scary" bill quite well, great work!

Great song, awesome EP! I'm back from vacation so I've got a lot of chip to catch up on it seems, starting with your EP :)

You're a monster. Also lmao @3:20. Seriously, awesome work.

CROSS-UP (2A03) by commandycan

OMG this is awesome.

That transition at 5:05-:08 tho. Damn I can't stop listening to this.
Congrats on the charts, well deserved!

Catchy melodies, solid song structure, I really dig it! Great job guys!

I'm a real sucker for good melodies, and that lead melody at 1:47? <3
Great job man

I second what both cqallen and pixel said. This is awesome, you've inspired me to tackle this genre at some point. Great job :)

photosynthesis by Pixeltune

Oh. My. God. This is so sweet, dude.
windy morning by JeMappelle

Yayy!

I love this tune, but I think I love the story behind it even more, haha. Great stuff Jredd :)

Heard this on Soundcloud, great work dude.

Atmospheric, I dig it! What kind of game is it?
THANAtopsis by PANDAstar

Very nice! What poem is it based off of?

@Ikasam it sounds to me like LSDJ, but some of the arpeggios suggest otherwise... hmm... 3ndy?

Oh, and seconded WRITE MORE ORIGINAL STUFF CUZ THIS SOUNDS GOOD AND STUFF. My only complaint is, this piece seems to stick with just one chord progression, don't be afraid to branch out! Still, this is really good, keep it up man!
C Side (2A03) by commandycan

Hello commandycan, this is really nice work you have here! This has a really nice flow to it, lots of energy coming through in those fast sections. This sounds really good, and deserves lots of votes in W.C. IX, Bravo!

DUDE, nice work on this one. Lots of energy in this cover and pulled off pretty well!

You're one hell of a composer and this is no exception, well done :)
Gerudo Valley [Cover] by StormBlooper

Good work on this! I was going to do this for the OoT collab but it looks like you beat me to it... that's what I get for procrastinating, lol. Nicely done.
Sphinxa by kloudygirl

Oooo gurl this shit right here. :P fucking awesome

YES! Wow man, your song craft was great before, but its improved tenfold on this track. My new favorite jam, great job!!

TO THE CHARTS MOTHAFUCKA!! Congrats!!

Yeah man, great job with this!!

The minimal texture that creates the overall atmosphere in this piece, captures the same tone that was cast on that day, 8 months ago today (dang!), perfectly. I remember being at work when it happened, getting calls and texts from my parents and the radio being on all evening keeping us informed. I remember thinking at the time, "Just another tornado, it'll pass by like all the others". I wish I hadn't thought like that, because that's not what happened, and the hundreds of thousands of people around the nation that saw photos of the wreckage and debris will tell you the same. Many people lost everything they had, some people lost their lives.

So, even if I sound like a sentimental sappy dude right now, I just have to get out there and say this, from one Okie to the next. This piece is nothing short of a masterpiece, and by far one of my favorites on this website. Because it really hits home for me.

Thanks for that. I hope nothing THAT terrifying happens again.
Overworld by Kubbi

Cool piece! Catchy, fresh, I dig it :)
Stormsong by VCMG

Chrono Trigger (Main Theme Cover) by SpacemanFantastiques

This is indeed very beautiful. Nice job :)

Bought the album, great work man, seriously. :)

Not bad! I'm not usually a fan of this style but this was executed really well, and you've got some really cool sounds coming through. Awesome!
Final Douchebag by PleaseLoseBattle

Agreed! :) Good work
Galaxies by VCMG

Ohhh man this is inspiring me to write more slow jams. Beautiful piece, well done :)
SLEEPLESS by Pixeltune

Your work never disappoints. If anything, it gets better and better. Great job :)

This is awesome! A fun and upbeat cover, I really dig this one. Great job man! :)

YES Lufia II! Pretty solid cover man. 2xLSDJ really does it justice.
Deck the Halls by xCriticalStrikex

Are you going to put this on Merry Chipmas collab?

Because, you totally should.

As a "cheeky last minute hand in" haha ;)

YES EVA!! I've been wanting to cover this for a long time and you beat me to it! Haha, but holy shit it sounds pretty good! :) Good job

Ohhh this is really nice. I feel like the Gameboy's sound chip makes this piece sound more ominous than the original version. Great job dude

OH GOD. Good stuff coming from this!!
Tarrasque by BrokenBit

OH MAN! Nice work, definitely heavy hitting. Very fresh all the way through, great work man

Haha, Boss Fight cover sounds like a cool idea! But yeah, embrace the LSDJ my man! It's interesting to me, at least, once you understand the limitations of LSDJ at face value, you can find ways to work around them, or even break them. I think there were a couple of Fighter X tracks on his new EP that had some sounds on it that sounded like the Sega Game Gear/Master System. So, who knows!You have a good grasp on it so far, I'd love to hear some original work from you as well.

Personally, I'm kind of glad that it perhaps, doesn't come close to the FM chip sound. This is a prime example of what the gameboy's sound chip can do on its own and you did a GREAT job of displaying that. I really like it. Great work :)

Aw jeez, this is rad. Great job Jredd!
Scattered by JeMappelle

This is beautiful. Really no other words to describe it. Impressive LSDJ work no doubt. I'm in love. Fantastic job.
TWELVE (FINAL) by Pixeltune

THIS... THIS is why I absolutely love the chipmusic scene. There are so many talented artists making all kinds of incredible music. I couldn't even begin to figure out how you did all of this. You are extremely talented at LSDJ and I for one, am FLOORED. This is what it's all about, man. If this doesn't chart I will be very sad.

WELL DONE!!

Second that at :45. That really ties the piece together, great work!
Return To Zero by matecha

Not bad! I really like the bass on this.
Luminous Flower by Kommisar

TWELVE (2xLSDJ) by Pixeltune

Said it cm.o and I'll say it again, great work man!

Agreeing with Wheely 1000%. Excellent job good sir!

Just curious, what tracker did you use for this, and can I use it on a Mac?

This is brilliant, I love it! Great stuff

Great job daleksam! And congrats on making top music of the week :) well deserved, sounds awesome.
Interface by BrokenBit

I would love to see you develop this some more, give it more direction with chord progressions, maybe a breakdown, etc.

Otherwise, holy SHIT, it's so sinister and relentless. I love it, so keep it up man! Good work.
Welcome by RoccoW

Very uplifting, I enjoyed it.

I think I remember you posting this on 8bc back in the day. I agree with PolarBirds also. Cool stuff!
Stardust by Kommisar

I absolutely love how you double the melody at 1:25, it is perfect. I've always liked your music and this is no exception, great stuff!

I can definitely hear some prog influences in this. Absolutely loved the intro, and how well the atmospheric guitar and the lead instrument fit SO well together! Fantastic job.

Also, it's nice to meet a fellow envy/FOT/Thursday fan on ucollective :D

DAYUM, love me some Castlevania. Really like how every song connected to each other so well. Great stuff!
