To explain why I'm doing this track, a certain GreenPowerStar asked me if I did requests/commissions, and I told him while I'm not doing commissions at this time, I do take requests. This was the song he requested. And...well, I was not looking forward to it, to put it bluntly. It's super chaotic, it's slightly more difficult to read by ear, it's got a lot of weird vocals to try and translate into chiptune, and to top it off the only reliable sheet music I could find on this track was on NicoNicoDouga, of all places. Also worth noting: I've never actually played this game, and because the games are usually published in the west by NISA, I usually don't go out of my way to play them. Did it anyway because it's around Halloween, this track sounds kinda spooky, Monokuma himself is kinda creepy, and it *was* a request.

A couple years ago, I did a cover of this song in 2a03. Looking back on it, I felt it was pretty lackluster due to it being rushed as hell. Granted, a lot of it was due to me doing it from the heart (keep in mind, it was made as a quick tribute to the late Iwata's passing), and was done in a hotel room late at night right next to Disneyland, but it still does not excuse it being rushed. While this was done to coincide with Chuggaaconroy's second LP of Earthbound wrapping up, I knew I'd be revisiting this track at some point, if only to do it more justice, and to that end I took the original SPC, spliced it up and mixed it in FL Studio so I could figure out each and every note. I felt that I did a much better job this time around.

My intent when composing this track was to make something more techno and science-like, but somewhere along the line I lost that train of thought. Also fun fact: this track used to be called 'Probability of Travelling Faster Than Light', though that was when I wanted this track to be faster paced, so I changed it to avoid confusion.

Sariel was originally the final boss of the Makai route of Touhou 1, but here she's the first boss! When composing an original song for her fight, I wanted something that fit a strong boss, but not quite a final boss-style theme. Not quite sure I hit that mark, but it honestly could've turned out worse.

I've had this track mostly ready since August, but as you might've guessed I've held off on posting it until today to coincide with the launch of Mega Man 11. I designed it to be something of a tango because, honestly, I just wanted to try doing a tango, and seeing as a tango is done by two dancers I found it only fitting to have it incorporate two of the Robot Masters' theme songs. I went with Woodman and Airman because Airman's weak to Woodman's weapon, and Woodman strikes me as an assertive type. That being said, while the intent was to do a tango I don't think I quite hit the mark...

Yes, I know this is technically a track from Seihou, not Touhou, but it was included in ZUN's Strange Works, and as Alice is a dollmaker you'd imagine a couple of them might be plastic, so I decided to repurpose this track as Alice's Stage 1 theme. That being said, the original song was surprisingly short, so for the cover I extended it a tiny bit to make it around 2 minutes before looping.

While I did cover this in the medley, I said before that I might want to work on stuff I've already done for the medley as full-fledged tracks, and I knew once Delicious Meat suggested it, I'd want to do Hyrule Castle as its own track. Thus, I sat down one day and decided to just do it. I also tried doing both the outdoors and indoors variants, and I think both of them turned out alright! I'll be honest, not only is this my favorite song from Breath of the Wild, I'll take any excuse to work on odd time signatures for Famitracker Bits.

Also since there's both the outdoors and indoors variants, there's naturally a stereo version containing in the MEGA download folder.

I kinda wanted to do all original tracks during pre-planning, but it was decided early on that there would be quite a few remixes. I figured since that was decided on, I'd give this unused song from Story of Eastern Wonderland a chance to shine in VRC6 as Reimu's Stage 1 theme. Also worth noting: the game this was made for is planned to have three playable characters: Reimu, Marisa, and Alice, and each of them have their own stage 1 theme.

Although it's currently fall, I had a good reason for naming it as Hakurei Spring Cleaning. The jam that this game was being submitted to was called the 'Hakurei Cleaning Jam', and I liked the idea of Reimu cleaning her shrine on a beautiful spring afternoon. This was the first track composed for this soundtrack, and as it's the title screen I decided to have the traditional Touhou title theme in it along with making this game's main theme.

If you're not already sick of Touhou on my channel, I've got good news for you.

MEGA DL: https://mega.nz/fm/0l92yYqb
Bandcamp DL: https://famitrackerbits.bandcamp.com/album/remembrance-of-past-prayers-touhou-saikai

To provide a bit of backstory, there was a Touhou-themed game jam this month called the 'Hakurei Cleaning Game Jam', where developers had a month to make a fanmade shmup. Among the teams that signed up were a couple of members of Analogue Reverie, a relatively new circle dedicated to working on Touhou fangames. For this jam, they wanted to work on a project that was eventually titled 'Touhou Saikai – Remembrance of Past Prayers', which aimed to be an arcade-style shmup resembling CAVE games. Around the 23rd of last month, WishMakers, the lead developer, asked me to help with composition work, and despite me having already done a Touhou album this year, I agreed.

Since the 1st of this month, I've been busy working on that game's soundtrack, and it looked like I'd be finished well ahead of schedule. Unfortunately, plans fell through due to real life obligations on one of the team member's end, and the game's development was put on hold. Since I was so close to the end by that point I wanted to at least finish this soundtrack. That brings us to today.

The soundtrack contains 10 covers and roughly 13 original tracks inspired by ZUN's work on Touhou, all done in Famitracker. It's being hosted on Bandcamp in case you're wary of MEGA, and although it's pay-what-you-want I'd really rather you just get it for free (since half of these tracks are straight-up covers). For the interest of transparency, any money earned will be put towards supporting stupidity™ on ProtonJon streams. Barring that, it'll be put into charity.

What does that mean for upcoming Famitracker Bits videos? I can say with certainty that no planned tracks will be affected, and if anything this album will make this channel's output more active than normal. For the next several months, I'll be uploading the soundtrack to this on my main channel for the sake of having something on it on Bitchute, since I honestly can't fit it anywhere else without completely mangling the schedule for the other videos I have planned. Current plan is to have Touhou Saikai uploads on Monday and Wednesday. Fridays will still have normal Famitracker Bits uploads, with a couple of exceptions here and there. The reason I'm doing a Bandcamp and MEGA album first is in case you just want to listen to the music without any delays.

Also for clarity's sake, I do not plan on putting either standard Famitracker Bits videos or the Touhou Week tracks into an album on Bandcamp at this time; the former because a lot of these cover are owned by companies who are very stingy with fan-works, and the latter because it's probably way too late for that. I may do more original albums in the future which will be posted on Bandcamp, so stay tuned.

With that being said, I'll see you on Monday for the first of these uploads!

Just my luck, a visual novel request...

DL Folder: https://mega.nz/#F!N4UAEabB!4KezzmwIpSEj6ET6hK1nGg

Unless you were keeping close track of my YouTube comments, you might've forgotten that subscriber medley I did earlier this year had a notable omission. Sayo-Nara was one of the tracks requested by Delicious Meat, alongside BotW's Hyrule Castle, and while I got to choose I made the mistake of saying, and I quote, “Eh, why not. I'll take 'em both!”. To no one's surprise, it didn't work for the medley, and thus failed to make the cut, but I still wanted to do it because, eh, why not?

Might be because of my aversion to visual novels (keep in mind, I've never played this game before), but part of the reason I held off for doing this for this long was because I wasn't sure how well my typical process would apply to this track. Of course, the reason I didn't post it earlier once it WAS finished is because I wanted to save it for an anniversary date, as tomorrow's the one year anniversary of DDLC. Now, I would've saved it for October, but there are several tracks I want to do that month that I don't want to reschedule unless urgent external stuff gets in the way. I also think that delaying this to October when it's been done since around May wouldn't sit right with me either. Knowing my luck, there'll still be some issues preventing me from uploading this in September, since I'm writing this description in July!

Also, I will be making an announcement video tomorrow regarding upcoming Famitracker Bits videos, so stay tuned!

I'll be honest: I played Sonic Mania a couple months before playing Sonic 3, and this song in particular blew me away the first time playing. It's not my favorite song from Sonic Mania, mind you, but when I heard this for my first time I was awestruck at how good it was. I knew that, if I were to ever cover Lava Reef Zone, that I would eventually be unable to resist going back and doing Act 2, and I decided, while I was making samples for last week's song, that I could actually make it happen. That's why I placed the DPCM samples in the opening three rows...but I held off on doing it for the rest of the song because I wanted those DPCM drums instead.

Remember when I said I wanted to mess around with DPCM sampling a couple weeks ago? I wasn't kidding. I decided, after using the Sonatina choir samples, to mess around with some of the drums from the same soundfont to try and make myself a set of drums to use in future projects, then started messing around with the string samples. Then I decided for whatever reason to try making an original song using these samples, and the result was this town music.

As I stated before, I have to know how I want to use these samples before I even make the .wav files that will then be imported to Famitracker, then I have to make sure they don't sound completely awful before committing to it, and if I want to loop them I have to put them through Audacity and lower the volume and take a tiny portion of it so that it loops decently, and even then I've had some issues. It's a pain in the ass, for sure, and I'll admit that it's probably better to use the N163 expansion for stuff like this to save on filespace (VinylCheese, another chiptune composer who's far more experienced than I am, is a champ at doing this). I've also learned after getting this ready that apparently I can only have 64 samples in one .ftm file at a time, meaning I have to be pretty stingy about them. That being said, I think it turned out pretty well in this song, but I feel like I haven't squeezed out all I can with the DPCM channel quite yet...

Due to the leak that happened hours before the Smash Direct, I'm pretty sure everyone was expecting Simon. However, I don't think anyone was expecting Richter to appear as well, and I'm pretty sure less than no one was expecting Kid Dracula, of all characters, to show up as a stage boss. In light of all this, I decided to try and cover the opening level from his home game, and since it's based on Castlevania 3's opening level (which was already made in VRC6 to begin with) I figured I'd try and do it in the style of Akumajō Densetsu...which raises a few problems of its own.

See, in CV3 style VRC6, a good set of instruments go from V00 to V-whatever within their specific Pulse Width settings, meaning I had to make a ton of instruments specifically for whatever the situation called for. This admittedly clears up space in the effects channel for other stuff, and honestly makes it sound cleaner than it would be otherwise, but I normally try to avoid making instruments that have specific pulse widths and just make one or two with specific volumes and worry about pulse widths in the effects list because I feel like it bloats the instrument list, sometimes with instruments I don't ever use. Perhaps most pivotal to this was to avoid using the Triangle channel, and after having relied on it for so long it's a little weird not using it. However, I think this turned out pretty well.

Since I did tease this track at the beginning of Touhou Week, I figured I'd post it for Friday's track. This was honestly something that was planned last minute. I wanted to do something for the teaser, I didn't want said teaser to be mute, and I wanted it to be a title theme, so I went with Touhou 7's title theme.

A little something Extra.

DL Folder: https://mega.nz/#F!551SzarQ!xDCh749cUJxYkc4a1gjlmg

Surprise! I had a couple more videos to post! By far the most notable Extra Boss theme, one of the most popular Touhou songs ever (being at the top of the THWiki's Popularity Poll for 2018 and consistently making top 5 every year the music poll's been held), and one of my absolute favorite Extra Boss themes, U.N. Owen Was Her is the Touhou song everyone who's heard of the series has at least heard of. It was honestly a matter of when I'd cover it, not if, so I figured I'd take the opportunity to get it out of the way now so it won't bug me later.

Of course, as I knew going in, covering it would be a pain. Semi-frequent time signature changes, very horror-esque strings, and the general fast-paced nature of the song meant covering it was more annoying than any of the others. That being said, I had so much fun making this that I'd do it again in a heartbeat, and I even took the liberty to experiment with DPCM choirs in the dedicated triplet section; it's something I definitely want to screw around with in the future, but because I have to know what chords to use before making the samples, and because each chord has to be its own sample, and because it has to hog the DPCM channel to pull this off I don't know how often I'll get a good chance to use it.

Back to where it all began...

DL Folder: https://mega.nz/#F!551SzarQ!xDCh749cUJxYkc4a1gjlmg

I figured it was fitting that I end this week off with the very first stage theme from the very first game: Highly Responsive to Prayers...which actually isn't a shmup! If you've never played it, it's a weird, experimental, Arkanoid-like game where you have to guide a ball around an arena to clear stages and beat bosses. Because it's the first in the entire franchise, it's very, VERY far removed from what Touhou would later become, and it didn't even have Reimu's counterpart, Marisa (she wouldn't debut until Story of Eastern Wonderland). However, one thing that hasn't changed is ZUN's musical skill, which is why I'm covering this track, as I think it holds up even to this day.

Now, regarding downloads, I'd normally have it up by now, but I decided to do a little something extra...

The calm before the storm.

DL Folder: https://mega.nz/#F!551SzarQ!xDCh749cUJxYkc4a1gjlmg

Hands down, this is my favorite final stage theme in any Touhou game. The sheer, raw emotion from its simplistic main melody and chords, combined with the quiet, peaceful synth-piano notes at the beginning, also combined with the waves and sounds you'd expect from an empty ocean, all brought together by the way the level it's used in is designed make the buildup to Junko one of the best I've seen in any shmup. It's for this reason I think Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom, despite all the issues I have with it and despite how brutally difficult it is, is one of my favorites in the series.

As for the cover, I wanted to experiment with twinkling notes across all-channels to make it seem more bright, combined with blank instruments in the lead melodies having sweeping volume. I also snuck in a bit of Pure Furies, which I think is fair because the main melody of THIS track was also used for Junko's boss theme.

Debuting as far back as Highly Responsive to Prayers, but not getting her own theme until Story of Eastern Wonderland is Mima, that one character a lot of fans want to see return! Complete Darkness was effectively her own first theme (seeing as she shared a boss theme with Yuugen Magan), and I wanted to at least try to cover it during Touhou week. There's already a Famitracker cover using the MIDI version that's floating around out there, so I went with the PC-98 original for this cover. I really hope you like square instruments because that's pretty much what the backing harmonies are for this track.

A while ago, before mirroring my YouTube videos on Bitchute, I did a cover of Dream Battle ~ Maiden's Capriccio, aka Reimu's theme from Imperishable Night, due to Touhou's 20th anniversary being that day. However, there was another Stage 4 boss theme that I really wanted to do, and it's only fitting that Day 4 features Love-Colored Master Spark, aka Marisa's boss theme from the same game and stage. Marisa hasn't quite been my favorite character (I honestly prefer Reimu over her), but that does nothing to detract from her. She's likable, she's an underdog, she's fast, she's hard-working, she has a giant fucking laser, AND her music is outstanding, hence why I knew I wanted to do this track.

Also, I couldn't decide to go with just her Imperishable Night incarnation, or the original version from Touhou 2: Story of Eastern Wonderland (Love-Colored Magic), so I went with a mixture of both. I decided to use the Touhou 2 pitch because I felt like the D#-minor pitch fit parts of this song better. Speaking of Eastern Wonderland...

What would Touhou week be without the obligatory cover of a theme from Embodiment of Scarlet Devil? That being said, I had a little trouble deciding between this and Shanghai Alice of Meiji. Ultimately went with this because:
A) I wanted to mess around with 3/4 time signatures and regal-sounding instrumentation.
B) I noticed it got the shaft in terms of Famitracker covers, but not in the way of GXSCC covers...
C) I'm trying to keep a balance between stage and boss themes.
D) Hong Meiling was sleeping on the job.
Like with Pierrot of the Star-Spangled Banner, I used the sawtooth channel to make the VRC6 instrumentation seem more alive for the bulk of the track. This was the plan from before I started working on it, but I wasn't sure if it would work at first because it's supposed to be a piano lead. Overall, this is an underrated song that I had a blast covering. Of course, I think the library itself smells of rats, which brings me to...

To quote ZUN on this: “I think this theme turned out particularly video-gamey”. With that in mind, you'd expect there to already be a number of 8-bit covers of this, but to my surprise there weren't any to be found, either on YouTube OR NND! There was one Genesis/Mega Drive remix of it, but that's it. With that knowledge in mind, I decided to try and cover it for Touhou Week. Not quite sure I hit the mark, but I'd like to think I did alright. Also don't worry, there will be more than just HSiFS covers this week!

Incidentally, I passed up doing Bad Apple so I could do this, not just to avoid giving the PC-98 too much representation (as you'll see here in a bit), but because I'd already technically done it and felt I could put off a proper cover until later. Also because of sheer coincidence, Touhou 16.5 happened to launch today at Comiket, and it has both Aunn Komano (whose stage theme I covered) and Nemuno Sakata (the owner of this theme) return as bosses, so although I'd already scheduled the first two tracks ahead of time I found it a little funny that it happened this way.

Disclaimer: A MIDI from ShinkoNet was used as reference in the making of this track.

Starting off, we have 'Swimming in a Sakura-Colored Sea', by far my favorite level theme in Touhou 16. As you probably are already aware, Hidden Star in Four Seasons is the first Touhou game to make it onto Steam, and I figured I'd get it and try to beat it before 2018. Needless to say, that didn't happen, but I was eventually able to 1cc it as every character by the 20th of June. After playing though this game so many times there were bound to be a couple of tracks that got stuck in my head, and this happened to be the most memorable of the bunch (that wasn't the final boss theme). I initially toyed with the idea of taking a riff from Battletoads 'Wookie Hole', because I thought they sounded kinda similar...? I quickly abandoned that idea when I realized that no, it wouldn't be appropriate for this album. Maybe another day...
