that last alex kidd game shinobi world
, while it didnt have an actual FM soundtrack like a lot of the SMS/mark III games, sounds fucking bonkers in FM
heres some cunt on jewtube that arranged it
did a gud job imo
FM aside, i just really admire how the composers in this instance speaking of the actual devs now, not that jewtube goy
completely re-harmonized the old shinobi songs here. i loved the OG arcade game, even after it mugged my lunch money literally thousands of times as a kid, but the old songs were just simple ostinato basslines.
in this version, the harmonies are off the walls
is the tits
>Still need to hardmod my SMS for FM sound on the games that shipped with the chip
is that shit hard?
i feel like the old 8bit consoles are at least simple enough to deal with by hand. just need an iron, a lil flux, and a steady hand and the fucking schematics
if muh retro market hadnt gone full retard as of late, id be trying to cannibalize some old sega console for use in recordings myself tbh. how hard could it be to mod a MIDI controller onto an old mark III? iirc they have MIDI ins/outs on the back for the FM unit already.
kinda out of my depth here tho, so idk
and idk if you do this shit irl, but ill ask anyways:
you ever had any exp with those cheap little analog korg FM oscillators?
they seem kinda limited, even with external MIDI controllers
idk im just looking for an affordable way to get real FM synth not some shitty gay (((digital))) VSTpeople who go on stage with their actual laptops are big cringe imo. plus, (((digital))) FM sounds like ass through big PA systems
sadly, the analog synth market is the only thing i can think of that can rival muh retro vidya market in terms of sheer retardedness in pricing.
its either>take out a loan on a new car
or<take out a loan for a fucking oscillator
but if donny boi sends me another couple thousand ronabux i might do it anyways tbh
i mean, what am i saving it for anyways at this point? so that commissar tyrone can come re-distribute it for me later?
