My Attempts At Beepbox
This is where some of the little tunes I've made with Beepbox/Jummbox are gonna go. They're extremely simple 'cuz I don't know anything about music theory, and it took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out that you could add channels.

♥ Funky Magic
This started out as me trying to make the type of song you might hear in a mysterious magical cave area while playing an RPG. Then I messed around with scales, and suddenly I had something much more high-energy on my hands. Honestly I think this is the most legit-sounding song I've made to date.
My attempt at using Ultrabox ended up with this. Interesting boss fight vibes. Might need more work to be considered finished... But what do I even do with it from here?
Woods Song 2.0
This is an improved version of the Woods Song. I still think there could be more to it, but I also like it how it is.
Icirrus City ALT VERSION
Here's the version I transposed into sixths and pitched down. (With some additional modifications.) Again, not perfect, but I think it sounds cool.
♥ Icirrus City (Cover)
This was a huge challenge in a lot of senses: my first real attempt at covering something, my first time wrestling with a meter of 6 rather than 8, and... Oh yeah, this is also my longest and most complex song to date. Turns out the bridge (chorus? is it a bridge or a chorus?) has some really weird stuff going on, so I had to fudge it a lot. Maybe I shouldn't have used one of my most beloved video game tracks for my first cover attempt, but... eh.
On the longer side, but honestly just me noodling around.
Based on a Tim Follin track that I can't remember the name of. Despite how simple this one looks, it was a bitch and a half to do. This is my first time successfully working on the "free" scale. Not perfect, but not bad either.
♥ just chill
Despite the number of channels in here, this one's honestly relatively simple. The koto towards the end of the loop kinda imitates the pattern of the Woods Song I did a while back.
Honestly this was just me goofing around to see if I could make the theremin sound good. Not my favorite. If you think you can fix this one, please do so.
Some of my best tracks come from me trying to recreate a pattern I heard somewhere and seeing what comes of it. This is a prime example. I made a 3/4 version too but then I lost it :(
♥ uh um
Normally customizing instruments is scary, but this just felt right. Fun fact: the bass here follows a similar pattern to the bass in Beatdown.
I don't remember making this one. I think I was experimenting with time signatures?
Like the title suggests, this is my first-- and only-- successful song in eighths. It was a complete pain to make and I never wanna do that again.
it's hard and no one understands
Started out as me just messing with chords. Then I transposed it to 3/4 for funzies and it ended up sounding wayyy better. Can you tell I'm addicted to slap bass yet? :P
