Tob's Tubular Tableau | Episode #3: Mario-free Music Mini-Madness


Alright so I usually try getting some resources done between each C3 which I can release, but I've been too caught up in my hack this time and don't have any resources to release. However I didn't want my little C3 series to miss out in only its third iteration. And since this series also usually worked as a way for me to showcase random junk I've been putting together sometimes, I figured I could use this thread this time to showcase some Music I've made.

I began toying around in FL Studio since late 2019 and since early 2020 now I have actually shared some of my creations on Soundcloud! I have shown off the first 2 tracks at the very end of last C3 already but I'd like to post them here again just to have everything together.

My first post on Soundcloud. There isn't much to say about this one. I've played a bunch of Yume Nikki and Fangames at the time and thats why I made a song reminiscent of those games save themes.

My first "full" track I have finished. I had no real goal with this song, I mostly wanted to mess around with Pokemon DPPT samples in an interesting way. It ended up sounding like a kind of mysterious and grand song for a really strange place..

First new song! This one actually has some background for once. Earlier this year in late spring I've went to a nearby lake with a friend and the feeling of "spending a nice evening on a lake with nice people" made me want to make a song fitting of that feeling. Also I just so happened to have watched a video on Bossa Nova music before and I was really wanting to make one myself. Two birds with one stone!

Alright this last one is a little different. I sometimes spend a full day messing around with random game soundfonts and the Crash Bandicoot samples really caught my attention. So after the usual bit of messing around I decided to turn this into a full track for an unused Crash 1 level. Specifically the Waterfall stage. This songs cover also comes from this exact unused level. I really hope I could capture the Crash Bandicoot-y feel nicely with this one!

I know this is quite the unusual and messy thread for C3 but I hope some people can enjoy this still.

They all just sound so nice! Good job!
I can see the skill and effort that went into this.

You continue to impress as usual! ^.=.^

The work you put into those shows.
I particularly like Vague Voyages a lot. : 3

Didn't expect that by "toying around with FL studio" you could eventually make such sweet compositions. I like them and I'm looking forward to hearing more from you.
You're not only a talented graphics artist, but also have a good taste for music too! #tb{;)}

Woah I didn't know you made music! These all sound hella cute #smrpg{<3}

(Also deadass I'd be down to port one of your compositions if you're interested)
Wow, these sound surprisingly clean and soft. Didn't know you compose stuff, let alone in such high quality haha
These actually aren't too bad! I especially like the second track, it has a mysterious and yet kinda calming atmosphere. I'd say it reminds me a bit of some areas in Undertale. If used in a game, I think it could work perfectly for a ghost house or underwater level.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
these are chill but the best one has to be the crash bandicoot one, nice job!!
That's a lot more replies then I would've expected for some silly music. And a lot of kind replies at that! Even though I don't have a big goal with what I am composing currently (beside maybe some character motifs), I been really enjoying just coming up with stuff. I really appreciate the positive feedback on these!

I must say that the first three compositions you made sound greatly serene and calming. I feel like I'd be able to actually fall asleep just by listening to them. As for the Crash Bandicoot concept, you've made it very accurate to the feel of the original music, good job!

I'm hoping to hear more wonderful compositions from you down the line, Tob!
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
>play around in fl studio
>makes brilliant compositions

Tob these sound really nice! I really liked the Crash Bandicoot-style one when you showed it to me and I'm glad you've shown these off to the world. The seaside one has gotta be my favourite. Vague Voyages really sounds like to should be in like a Pokemon game (probs because of the samples!) at that scene where you're just about to fight the main-game legendary or the whole world's gonna die. Might fall asleep if I kept listening to the lullaby one.

Brilliant stuff make more.
Holy Shit that Crash 1 styled track sounds so legit its crazy.
Upstream & Up The Creek are some of my fave levels from the original game so hearing a track that reminds me those levels is amazing.

Your other tracks are top notch as well Tob. #smrpg{<3}
I play around with fl studio since years and my compos always suck #smrpg{haha}

Seriously though, great music you have here. You should definitely attempt porting them. #tb{;)}
