Monkey Island (8-bit Chiptune composition)

A big inspiration for me are the old 8-bit games. After all these years I can still strongly recall tunes like Mario, Zelda, Ninja Turtles, Final Fantasy etc. So here is my composition in 8bit chiptune style called ‘Monkey Island’. In total I’ve used only 5 tracks just like the NES configuration. 2x square wave (lead/support melody), 1x triangle wave (bass), 1x noise wave (drums) and 1 sample DCPM kit (drums). It’s really a challenge to come up with something interesting with the 5-track restriction but it also makes you focus on the most important thing…a good melody!
