My compositions made in MaxYMiser!

Post by 607 »

Hi, it's me again!

As you might have seen, I started using MaxYMiser recently.
And I just published my first tune!
You can download it here: http://bit.ly/MaxYMiser607
And if you'd rather watch a YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wwm2e3wSzuk
What do you think? :)

Very cool tune! Quite rough but I enjoy (and even prefer) it this way ;)
The melodies are nice and catchy, and it rather sounds like an old Atari ST game or demo. Well done! :cheers:

Cool! Dark tune (for me). Congratulations. I enjoyed listening to it.
Trying to learn...

I made another tune! :D
It's downloadable using the link in the first post, and I also uploaded a YouTube video of it.
I like how it turned out, myself! :)

For a (Windows) game I made for one of my very best friends, I took the opportunity to create a new MaxYMiser soundtrack!!
There are 3 full themes and 2 shorter tunes coming up. Here's the title theme on YouTube: Dawn of a New Endeavour.
And you can download this theme and my other tunes here.

I must've forgotten to reply, but I did sent a picture of this to some of my friends, as I was quite happy!! :D


Anyway: I published two short tunes from my recent project: one for failure, one for success. They didn't take very long to create, but I did really enjoy composing them. :) They're called 'Better Luck Next Time!' and 'You Did It!' and available for download through the link shared throughout this topic, and I also uploaded two videos of them (click on the titles to watch them).

I just uploaded the last tune of the Iter Lanatae soundtrack.
This is the theme for the ending and credits sequence, and I'm quite fond of it!! ^.^

Here's a new tune! This one was rather experimental, but I do really like how it turned out.
Do check out the YouTube video, as I'm rather happy with what I made in DEGAS Elite for this one. ;)

This is the first in a new series, where I base a tune on a certain setting used in video games. In this case, Plains/Grassland. I wonder if I'm the first to use bird sounds in an Atari tune... probably not, actually, but I don't know.

This might be my best yet! Not suitable to actually use in a video game, because it tells a story... it could be good for a cutscene though, I suppose. ;)

Thank you very much! :D No, I am not, and sometimes I have felt like I wasn't improving (and I do think my previous MaxYMiser tune, Whistling Winds, might be my weakest yet). However, I do try to both attempt new things and remember what's worked in the past. :)
My current WIP is a 'nasty' boss theme. Inspired by your hardware renders, I want to record it from the real hardware (which is something I haven't done in a while, as it often sounds less clean). I guess the COVID-19 crisis, which has made me stay with my family, makes it easier to do this, as now I am always close to the real hardware, instead of only seeing it once in a fortnight. ;)
After that, inspired by the comments on botb, I'd like to make a tune that would play on ST, so without use of the DMA channels. Possibly one inspired by the music for the Mega Man games, which I have wanted to do since watching this video, years ago.
