Anyone interested in making a killer 8bit tune?
Original or cover, it really doesn't matter to me.

I still haven't started my next soundtrack. I have to do that eventually! I guess I could do with some more practice, in the meantime!

Well, I don't have an exact idea. I suppose something original would give more practice (which is what I'm after too) but it doesn't have to be. I was working on this one a few days ago but I'm thinking about scrapping it now:
FTM
I just threw some notes down to see what would stick and that's what I got. Maybe it will help spawn some ideas.
Other than that, I've been working on a recreation of Garland's Temple from FF1 and Neclord's Castle theme from Suikoden.
I'll be thinking about it throughout the day though. I'm sure we can come up with something good =)

That's kind of cool.

That's kind of cool. Texturally, I think you need to use an instrument with a stronger attack for the faster notes.

It makes me think of knights readying to do some noble. I like it, but I'm not feeling inspired to add my own stuff to it when I listen.

Hmm. I'm playing bass right now.

How do you normally come up with music? Just entering notes?

I usually start with an instrument, though not always.

Do you use any IM stuff? Or did you just want to try collaborating via the forum and sending files? I could start trying to play some song ideas or something.

I wish I could play an instrument well enough to come up with stuff, that's how I'd prefer to do it. I usually have a vague idea of what I want starting out, but not always. That's where the theme's for the contests help me out- by giving a set direction and limiting the possibilities from infinite to just what would 'sound nice for this'...if that makes any sense, maybe I'm just musically agoraphobic. xD
Famitracker makes it easier for me to find what notes I'm looking for, so that's what I've been using.
Do you usually make a bass line first for yours?

Well, I just programmed a drum line, and I'm trying to come up with a bassline. Building a song bottom-up like that works well for me sometimes :-D

Someone contacted me about commissioning a soundtrack recently, too, but I'm not sure if that's going to fall through or not. They seem to have stopped contacting me. Oh well!
