Hiya!  I apologize, but i had to move all the samples and music that i had made for this competition.  Visit the music/sound section of my website at feeblethemighty.com for the files i had uploaded here!

Wow, I never thought ukuleles could sound so pretty. The chip-bass seems a little overpowering, though. Keep up the good work!

Nice little ditty. If, as the previous reply suggests, you decide to handle the overpowering sound underneath the uke, I might suggest finding a thinner percussion instrumentation. The bass could just be turned down slighty, if anything. Just my taste, but that's what I would do. Definitely glad to hear tune! Keep it up.

Thanks for the input!  I agree that the bass is overpowering.  I will try my best to adjust it and upload a new one later.

But for now, i made a new moody, atmospheric tune this afternoon called Precarious Precipitation.  I plan on making some much more upbeat tunes later.  Fret not.

Man I love ukulele. The world needs more ukulele music! Especially in games.

Actually, i do have a ukulele which i like to rock out on, but right now i've been messing around with my Guitalele which is a 6-string ukulele and is much better suited to slower contemplative songs.

I'm having too much fun with this.  I should be doing other things, but i already came up with another tune.  This one's called Flint's Theme.  It kinda reminded me of meeting a new character in an RPG or something.

Any constructive criticism is welcome.

The intro sounds a little out of tune, but then I don't know much about instruments.  Shrug Sounds like a great tune to set to getting lost in a strange place.

Thanks!  Yeah, i've always liked mixing electronic and acoustic music.

I've reworked Calm Retaliation so the bass isn't so loud in the mix. 

Also, i added a sound effect, Typing Dialogue, that sounds annoying by itself, but i found if you mute it and have it looping constantly in the background and unmute it only when dialogue is typing out in your game, it sounds pretty good.

Hey, I've been following. The revised Calm Retaliation is much cleaner. It's sort of minimalist sound, but has a great vibe to it now that stands out. Well done.

I like Precarious Precipitation. A lot. It seems like it would be the perfect title music for a 'serious' game. Tongue

Thanks.  I'm hoping to get a good range of different styles and sounds during this competition, serious all the way to ridiculous.

Just made another tune today: Sunny Underwater Nightmare.  It's purely chiptune right now, with a sleepy beat and a constant drone in the background.  I was thinking of maybe adding some ukulele arpeggios in too if it was too minimal of a song.  Check it out.

I like underwater nightmare quite a bit, it's pretty inspiring.  However, it gets under my skin just a little bit in the part where the high-pitched pinging is playing on beat with the main synth: They hit every note at the exact same time through the entire stanza. If just one or two notes were off from each other, or the high-pitched ping had a couple extra notes that weren't matched by the main synth, I think it would add quite a lot.

Basically, the high pinging feels a bit like the hero of that segment, but it's 'trapped' by the main synth. It wants to break free and be it's own melody! Does that make sense?

You, sir, have inspired me to break out my uke.

No good can come of this.

Yeah, after listening to it again, i see what you mean.  I'll see if i can tweak it.  Thanks for the advice!   Smiley

Another chiptune type song: Thick Cut Fries.  This one has SID chip beats and a rather playful melody.  I think for my next entries, i'm going to use mostly my uke to make a Runman inspired soundtrack.

Took Melly's idea on the request thread and sat down with SFXR and compiled 150 WAV files into one tasty 5MB ZIP file morsel.  It has multiple sound effects for categories such as jump, shoot, select, thump, explosion, and epic explosion.

Get it here: SFXR Sound Pack.

Made a whole bunch of goofy vocal stuff that has more to do with in-game events.  Individually recorded numbers like "One", "Two", "Ten", "Thousand" so you can mash them together.

Also, there is stuff like "Game Over", "Round" (then mash with the "One" sample, for example), "Excellent", etc.

Thanks!

Okay, one last update for today.

I thought it would be neat to have the narrator voice sound like low sample rate NES voice for those old-school fetishists.  So, i took the same narrator sample pack and gave it some crackly colour.  I don't have time to make a sampler right now, but you can download it here: Lo-Fi Narrator Pack.

Also, i made a short little uke song: Under the Overworld
