I had originally composed this in 2008 after I broke up with a girl I was "dating". A chapter was closed, a new one had begun.

I think I'm getting better at channel usage, and making instruments. c: Still not sure how to make a good use of the Ext. CH3 mode. ;w;

PCM:
Distorted kick - ripped from an XM module called Flare Houze
Power snare - ripped from the Chorium GM Soundfont and pitch-stretched
Crash and splash cymbals - ripped from Chorium GM

FM:
Piano presets - made over a guitar preset from the MVSTrackerMD presets included in Shiru's TFM Music Maker
High hats - MVSTrackerMD presets
Softer kick - from Genny VSTi
GT-like lead - from Splatterhouse (Namco System 1)
Hard saw bass, sub bass, pads, 2OP saw-like lead and harmonic-based instruments - by me

I hope you enjoy it. ^^

When I first saw this thread, I thought the whole forum was closed...
This song is so attractive... The hard drums..... And the part at order 08...

But, in order 03, at row 32, are you sure? G#4 and F#4 together?

I'm happy you find it attractive.

Yes. 2nds are all over the place in this song, I really like unusual intervals being transposed wholly regardless of the scale of the main key. :3

Sounds really good. There's some very nice tasteful use of dissonance (probably a lot to do with those aforementioned 2nds).

Thanks! I did intend to experiment back when I had made this, and I think I should try it again. Some of my personal favourites came from trying to make something new. c:

Yay for distorted kicks :)
To understand FM, I think of each OP as an OSC that can also be a LFO.

:3 I'm happy you like that detail. By the way, real nice startup jingle!

You might be able to learn from Double Dragon 2, it uses the ch3 mode in several tracks.

The Double Dragon 1 adaptation sucked, but the Double Dragon 2 was in some things actually rivaling its arcade counterpart, as it sounded very powerful. :3 I'll take a look at it!
