You know, despite it not being very illusory (or a capital, at that), the design of the place looks really cool!
To give a bit of context, since I started using Bambootracker I've mostly been relying on trial and error to make instruments and/or porting instruments from Deflemask's Genesis set. It hasn't really gotten me very far since I'm not nearly as good with making FM instruments as I am with making Famitracker instruments, and while I did enjoy the results of what I've done before I always have the nagging feeling that I could be doing better with different instruments. One day I saw that Silent Sinner in Scarlet, another chiptune artist who works with MML (something I am *garbage* at and need to eventually learn), had uploaded an MML instrument set that ZUN used for the PC-98 Touhou games, and while none of them could be imported to Bambootracker I decided to try converting a couple of those by hand into that program's instrument format. Then I took a few of the instruments and made a sample song to see if I could make something in the style of the Touhou Old Works.
This isn't that song (dunno when/if I'll upload that), but then I had the urge to cover a Seihou song soon after. I decided to go with Illusory Imperial Capital because it felt catchy enough, and because I didn't want to redo Primrose Shiver yet. With any luck I'll be able to convert more instruments soon so I can make more PC-remixes in the style of PC-98 Touhou.

The motto is "bee"!
I think I heard about TwinBee back when I was getting into shmups over the past couple of years, and while I did get a chance to try out the NES/Famicom version via the NES app on Switch, I'm not fully sure how I feel about it. The music is pretty catchy, though, so I decided to try to cover it in Bambootracker. This was actually planned for last Monday, but by the end of the weekend I was a little too tired to work on that, so I held off and did National Park instead.

Journey back to 1997...
I've actually already done this for Famitracker Bits over two years ago, but I figured since I'm on a Bambootracker kick lately I might try to do a Castlevania track. This just happened to be the one I wanted to do the most. This being a Castlevania track, it was inevitably a lot of fun to work on, and I'll try to do some more for Halloween this year.

Going for the half-marathon!
So I'll be real with you: I wanted to do this in Sneventracker to avoid being *too* reliant on Bambootracker for Monday's videos. It also had been a *while* since I used that program. It worked, but unless Sneventracker got a recent build I'm a little sad it doesn't export to a Sega Master System/Game Gear sound file (only to .nsf for some reason). Tried porting it to the SMS sound system in Deflemask, but I wasn't happy with the result because percussion was annoying to figure out, and I didn't want to release a video without it. I eventually decided to just port it to Bambootracker and get it over with.
Also I love how as soon as I decide to work on this in Sneventracker they announce Super Mario Maker 2, which hopefully has this track this time.

UPDATE (2.18.19): Fixed a quick typo in the timestamps.
I don't know why, but I keep misreading this song name as Bridge Hill Zone.
If you're familiar with the 8-bit Sonic games, you're probably also familiar with Bridge Zone, host to a song that's considered one of the hidden gems within the Classic series. Thing is, not only do Famitracker covers exist of this song already, but there's been a bunch of Genesis covers (especially by way of ROMhacking). Since I'm trying to learn Bambootracker (specifically how instruments work in it compared to Famitracker), I figured I'd try and do a quick cover of Bridge Zone in it, since the Genesis sound hardware is similar enough to the YM2608 hardware anyway (in this case I ported over the sample instruments used in the Deflemask Genesis Sonic demo like a lazy sunnuvagun). I'll probably revisit this in Famitracker proper later down the line, so stay tuned for that.
