TWO MORE TUNES today.

 

Also thought I'd show a little progression in the development of a tune.

Here's the 2600-ization of the title screen song from Wizards & Warriors:

2puck.zip

Tommy whipped that up for me a few weeks ago on a whim, I guess.

 

Here's the first draft of that: post-1863-1083553566_thumb.jpg That's just the notes.

 

Here's the 2nd draft: 2puck.zip For this one, I made the lower notes (in the first measure, the 2nd, 4th, etc.) a little softer, I made the countermelody articulated, and I tweaked the articulation a bunch until the notes "rang" a little. After listening to the original (NES) I also cut one note out of the countermelody. If I was going to use this for anything I'd probably do more polishing, starting with slightly fading out the last measure.

 

Aaaand: I also added another song to the "tunes" collection: post-1863-1097509880_thumb.jpgI also redid some of the incidental code for that ROM: now the newest song is the song that plays by default (the trigger still will cycle through to the older songs) plus RESET no longer just restarts the binary - now it restarts the current song. I'm also trying to think of a good "music kernel" for this and similar binaries. Any ideas? The current one is a little chaotic.

These all sound pretty decent, particularly Wizards & Warriors. However, you omitted (on purpose, maybe?) about six measures from the battle song. It's supposed to be like this. If you didn't do it on purpose, then you probably had one of my eight revisions to that tune, in which I was trying desperately to smash it into 128 notes.

 

Thanks for doing these; they all sound surprisingly good! :party:

That link is broken and, yes, that is the version that is marked "edited" - it doesn't have the slower section in it.

There are more to come. :party: I added one and a half more. When I finish the half-done one I'll post the latest and greatest.
