I'm doing a full album cover of In Flames' Colony album in VRC6 on Famitracker. It's turning out really nice so far.

Here's the NSF so far if anyone is interested.

If anyone knows a way to make it in NSFE files, that would be great so I could label the tracks.

Tracklist:
1- Embody The Invisible
2- Ordinary Story
3- Scorn
4- Colony
5- Zombie Inc
6- Pallar Anders Visa
7- Coerced Coexistence
8- Resin
9- Behind Space '99
10- Insipid 2000
11- The New Word
12- Man Made God
13- Clad In Shadows '99

Thanks man. I'm sure you'll like it, judging by the Iron Maiden avatar.

Here to at least get an idea of how the NES works. I mean I know alot of the basic things, but this place'll help me grasp more how NES functions.
Major respect to NES developers.

I'll be interested to hear the final product as well, used to listen to this album quite a lot when I was younger. Good work so far!

I thought I'd give some info about the project and the album and band I'm covering.

Colony was released by a band called In Flames in 1999.
In Flames has been around/formed since about 1990, with their first album in 1994, and are still an active band to this day.

They are considered to be a "founding band" of the genre many call Melodic Death Metal/Melodeath, which takes heavy influence from NWOBHM, Iron Maiden, Thrash, Speed, and Death metal to form a new blend of music.

Colony was their 4th album, and their first to feature their most well known line up, until the founder Jesper Stromblad quit the band.


The project is being done entirely from scratch and by ear.

The first 2 channels will be utilized mostly for rhythm guitars.
The triangle channel will be used as bass,
The noise is used for mostly high end percussion.
The DPCM channel will be mostly for drum samples which were rendered in Reaper using Addictive Drums: Bass drum, snare, tom.
It will also be used for voice samples.

VRC6 channels:
square channels will be used for lead guitar parts, and some synth parts.
saw channel will be used for synth parts.

The music will be available in formats:
nsf
nsfe
mp3
