In the open world, there's gold at the end of the rainbow.

Track notes: I kind of didn't try hard enough. I ran a bunch of errands earlier in the day and kind of came home late-ish. I did aim for two things in this track:

1. A new key. Arpeggios. Stuff like that. The composition isn't anything amazing but new keys take a bit to learn.

2. Compose more chiptune and make sure that it sounds like passable pleasant chiptune music that doesn't have anything fundamentally wrong with the timbre.

A few habits I'm picking up: Changing drum timbres. Thanks onezero!

Things I didn't spend a lot of time on: Mixing. I think it's reasonably balanced but I applied very little EQ and compression.

Also, as cool as analog synths are, they fall out of tune and rar I keep on having to fix things. Maybe that's not a bad thing because my ear's starting to get trained finally.

Hope I achieved those goals and that you enjoy this!

Sun, March 19. 11:30 - 11:50. I'd like to work on making arpeggios and other backing elements, chiptune style this week.

I also plan to work on the key of F major/D minor to get more used to different keys. I currently do a lot of C, G, and E and adding another key will help diversify my sound.

It also reminds me that I should work on playing scales as a regular exercise.

13:00 - 13:20.

16:25 - 17:45. Not really my best work - I kind of half-assed the mixing. It was fun though.

Total time: 2h
