Update! Listen to the (future) in-game version here:
I spent something like 2 days off and on working on it, and another like 2-3 hours or smth making that picture of the caveman. Not to mention however much time I spent working on the Jewel Case edit for the album cover, which an acquaintance of mine still managed to recognize instantly, despite ironically not knowing what I was talking about when I cited bits and lyrics from the song, for some reason.
I actually had a lot of fun making this. getting the vocal line to match up with the actual guy's timing was a little challenging, but very well worth it. I even made the pitch bend events a little bit different for the parts when the guy's voice would go all raspy and make him be about 40 cents too flat.
I also got a kick out of making the EP breakdown, that shit sounds so dope man. Also, my #bigpal Shtoopidface has finally, FINALLY made his grand Return of the King (1980), after being gone for what must be a good decade or two in internet years. I seriously missed talking with this #bloke. I finally feel funny again for the first time in months. Probably has a lot to do with my brother being funnier than me while simultaneously letting me know how unfunny I am.
See, I always have this habit of beginning to copy people's manner of speaking, especially when it comes to their mode of comedic delivery, but my brother's brain is wired the same way as my maternal grandmother's, which is to say 'it makes sense MOST of the time'-- needless to say, there have been times where I've understood why my Dad had shaken his head and called her an idiot a few times in the past. Like, Nana is exceedingly cool, ya know, but I just don't understand her line of thinking sometimes, y'know? My brother's a bit better about being completely confusing, if only because he does that less often, but on the downside he's also the Immovable Object to my Unstoppable Force, as I've stated previously. .....But I digress.
I'm thinking about going into the project file and cleaning it up somewhat? I plan to make an extra channel for the aforementioned sine wave breakdown, or at the very least some extra Edit Events for the Judge's Elec copy-- that's the sound that cuts in towards the end.
Oh, and speaking of which, here's a fun fact about this track. It was a rather ingenious idea I had when it came to me.
Back when I started working on this track, I noticed that Judge's Feet was at a sufficiently different tempo to Remind Me to make them nigh incompatible. ...At first. See, what I did was, I made a new pattern, right, and I made Edit Events for tempo that changed it from 150 to RM's 122. However, that would make the ping pong ball-ass bouncing of the instruments slow down significantly, obviously, so I calculated how much of 150 that 122 is, which was about 81.25%, and then used Ctrl+Shift+Drag on the kick drum phrase, shrinking it in length so it would be restored to its original bouncing speed.
Then at the end of the track, when the drums completely stop, I have another event that restores the tempo to 150 seamlessly. Yeah, I'm a smart guy.
