Post subject:  Re: Progress Thread - Wrecking Balls

Given the possibility of using arpeggios, here's another soundtrack update thanks to Rahsennors' tip that arps work for drum/percussion in a similar way to continous envelopes when changed at a per frame basis.

I found that a tri tone with a 2-frame volume envelope (on, then off) still gets audibly affected by the pitch of the arpeggio frame corresponding to the off frame of the volume, making a (nes-relatively speaking) very sharp, snappy snare tone possible, as opposed to the more beefy, tom-like electro sound of a tri tone left on for 2 or more frames. I'm not aware of the exact circumstances of this behaviour, but if it works, it works.

kicks, snare tone, and toms implemented in this alternative version of the two songs.
