about

UPDATE: The free Slayin 2.0 update came out last month, which brought with it a host of new characters, as well as an extended intro theme song, and a brand new full length In-Game theme!

Slayin marks the start of a new era in Norrin_Radd chiptunes. I ditched my old templates and constructed a brand new template from the ground up using dozens of new custom made NES samples. The result is a cleaner and much more flexible sound than my previous chiptunes, while still remaining entirely authentic. Slayin was a challenging soundtrack to create because unlike projects in the past, I needed to "score" this game, rather than simply write a good chiptune and call it a day. It turned out to be an amazing learning experience in how to properly formulate a "theme" and stick to it. The end result is what I consider to be my most accomplished collection of chiptunes ever, but I'll let you be the judge.

Don't forget to check out the game "Slayin" for iOS in the AppStore! It's the best $0.99 you'll spend in a while!

Track Name: Boss Theme (Norrin_Radd Edition)
What's a "Norrin_Radd" Edition?

It was only something I became aware of during the creation of this soundtrack, but apparently I am known to use a particular style of note slide a lot in my tracks. I didn't really understand what people meant by this until I showed a friend an early version of the Tavern theme. His reply was something along the lines of, "Ah, there are those classic Norrin_Radd note slides". That was weighing on my mind quite heavily during the creation of this particular song, and I think I may have accidentally added way too many note slides. I knew this might be a problem after I played this track for a different friend, and he suggested that there might be too many note slides. This was indeed a confusing spot to be in: If I am known for note slides, is it a good thing, or a bad thing to abuse them? I use them so often that I can't really hear them as being a bad thing, but I do know that I loaded this song with so many note slides that if ever there were going to be a track with too many, it was this one. So as an experiment, I removed ALL note slides, and ended up really enjoying the track as well. I decided the version without abusive note slides was probably the right one for the game, and kept the over the top note slide version here. Listen to the two back to back to hear what happens when I abuse my own sound, haha.
