finished I made some retro arcade racing music

Recommended Posts

Hey!

Just for fun, I took a shot at making a few tunes I believe would fit the old arcade racers from the 80's and 90's. I tried to recreate the general style of the time, with all its cheesiness and badly sampled instruments.

Have a listen to "Midnight City Course" and "Cabriolet Cruisin'", and let me know what you think!

"Midnight City Course" is pretty awesome! Recalls the 16-bit era sound. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the cheesy sampled instruments!

"Cabriolet Cruisin'" - nice bassline!

the pitched brass hits are genius.

it's quite clean, maybe experiment with dirtying/mashing up the mix a bit and make it sound more like it's coming from an old chip. that's the thing with cheesy samples, as well: they can end up sounding unexpectedly delicious in a dense lo-fi mix where the chip kind of does its magic.

nice work, still.

cabriolet cruisin is neat! just got to that. cleaner sound works well for me, there.
