Hi!

I'm not good with introductions, so I hope that this will at least tell what kind of stuff I do... and like.

I did enjoy the Kraid's Lair cover on POKEY. And the beginning of Raining Blood, would be cool if more was done with that.

I just got done listening to your Palet Town cover. While I'm impressed with how closely you matched the GB's sawtooth (can the VRC6 even do it?), I really wanted to hear how the Pokemon music would sound with a triangle wave instead. I really love the NES' TriWave sound, I don't know why. Listen to Dark Lord's soundtrack and you might see why I like the sound.

Haha, I'm definitely a noob when it comes to Atari POKEY, but I was pretty happy how it turned, even though it's not really that complex. I'm planning on doing the whole Raining Blood song in the future, I just feel like that simple square waves won't cut it. I'm thinking of replacing VRC6 with N163, but I'm not sure.
Who knows? Maybe I'll also do something about Iron Maiden ;)

Uhm... Well... the thing is that the sawtooth that Pokémon uses is very soft (kinda like something between a sawtooth and a triangle wave) compared to the 8-step sawtooth that VRC6 uses, which sounds a bit... gritty? Idk if that's the right word. I personally haven't even thought about that, maybe I should give it a try.

When it comes to making songs in 2A03, I guess it would be interesting. However, songs like Lavender Town and Pokémon Tower will not work simply because the waveform is way too distorted.

Give it a whirl, I'd like to see what it'd be like. Maybe you could take advantage of how the triangle wave isn't exactly in-tune like the other instruments for Lavender town, and maybe use some of the lower octaves or the mid-upper pitches.
