And Another Chiptune

Another one:

This one came from a little guitar riff (haltingly played on an unplugged 335, which is why it sounds so thin):

I ran out of ideas and ended up making the lead follow the riff, and then made it loop. Excitingly, I found a use for the arpeggio effect.

Another Chiptune

This is a chiptune I’ve been tinkering with for a while:

I thought this one sounded a bit like GameBoy Castlevania until I listened to that soundtrack again and realized that its composer really knew his stuff. Oh well, I like it anyway.

Professor Sinister XM Music

On the subject of XM music modules, here’s the Professor Sinister mod:

This has all of the different tracks embedded in it in different blocks. The song index is:

  • 00: Empty block (songs that don’t loop jump here when they end)
  • 01: Climb Time (in-game music);
  • 0B: Pause jingle;
  • 0C: Oh Well (game over music);
  • 14: Something Sinister (title music);
  • 27: Ooops (lost a life music).

You’ll need something like MilkyTracker to play it.
