New Track: Mode 7

27. July 2009 15:48 by Hamst3r in Tracks

Have you ever wondered what four Nintendo Game Boy handhelds playing in unison would sound like? No? Oh, ok.

Well, guess what?

It sounds like this new track!

The track is called Mode 7 and it’s a lot of buzzes and blips. A chiptune, if you will.

I’m a fan of single oscillator saw synths being used to emulate lead guitar sounds and other such nonsense, so there’s some of that sort of thing going on in this track.

Also, there’s no effects processing or mixing outside of a tape saturator and a mastering limiter to keep the overall sound under control.

Stylistically, I wasn’t attempting to mimic the music from any particular video game, though classics like Mega Man, F-Zero, Castlevania and others will always be in the back of my mind when I’m making stuff like this, so you might hear a bit of those in there.
