I'd like to chime in that this song (in it's first form, at least) was done in ONE DAY for IMC Popcorn II.

Yes, i'm fairly sure it won.

(If i remember correctly, it beat out my song. I would've won! Sheesh!)

Thanks for posting this, djp. And thanks for the reviews, everyone.

Like TimberWolf said, this was originally written for IMC Popcorn #2 which was a 24-hour compo. I worked on it after the contest before submitting it to OCR so this is slightly different from the winning version. Still, for the amount of time I spent on this I was pleased with how it turned out even if it is a bit simple. anyways, here's a rundown of the instruments for those interested.

bass - saw+subosc through resonant filterenv and then through a lo-fi or rate reduction effect for that crunchy distortion. Lots and lots of compression. Add some delay and eq automation.

piano - a thick chorusing on a reverbed JV1010 piano patch that goes away as it comes in. I get a mental image of a grand piano rising out of the ocean when I hear it.

strings - reverbed and flanged JV1010 string patch... why do I like flanging on strings so much?

lead - I set up two square oscillators in sync mode on my VirusC with chorusing. I was going to set up an lfo to change the pitch of the moduator but decided to manually move the knob myself as it was playing with very lively results. Almost too lively. Finalize it with some delay and reverb.
Also, like DJP pointed out, there's some interesting panning and volume changes in the B sections. It gives the illusion that the lead is circling around your head if you're wearing headphones.

drums - acoustic drumkit samples I had purchased, I used an algorithmic composer, Band-In-A-Box to help me reach my artistic vision for the percussion sequence. It worked out quite well.

guitar - that's me playin' my strat. I used my Boss VF-1 for the effects on it.

Put the whole thing together and mastered it in logic audio. EDIT: You can listen to the other entries here.

I browse with sigs disabled and have been ever since the vb switchover

Nice and catchy. I like it. And of course the game itself rules, and has lots of great music. The intro to this remix almost sounds like synthesized speech. I thought it was trying to say something for a second or two until I realized it was not speech. Yes, it's short, but I like it anyway. Oh well I'll just click on the MP3 file multiple times to play it again and again to "extend" it. Great job!

I wonder whatever happened to the original composer, "Bo"? He's done some great stuff.

This has a very catchy-tune, I like it. I have to like a remix A LOT for me to download it, and this was one of them. Great job! Now this is some good stuff.
