Have fun making music like how it was back in late 2015 until mid 2017!
Only OGs know the struggle.
Unfortunately it's even harder now that some instruments are louder than before.
Is it necessary to use the 13 instruments?

You're able to use any of the 13 instruments above, regardless of you using all of them or not, but any instrument that's not listed is prohibited.
Hmm... I think I can do this one...
Kinda tempting just to submit the John Cena cover I made with all the OG instruments back when I was new

I've adjusted the default volumes for all instrumentst be approximately equal since adding the sliders. Now you can decide for yourself what is foreground or what is background. Not great for this contest though, I'd recommend allowing volume changes.
My best sequences were made with the original instruments before the major updates, so this is my field.

Dohemi, a surf song I made re-created in MIDI.

still maybe wip for now
