No it’s not true that all samples , music and sound effects has to be all fit in just 64K, in fact samples can be swapped in & out once needed, heck tales of phantansia even streames high quality voices during music playback in the intro, i wish snes street fighter 2 & killer instinct did this sothat they didn’t had to shorten those voices .

what is most interesting is watching how a tracker plays back good snes music compared to a traditionally tracked song where limits were not so restrictive.

im gonna attempt to deter anyone from the thought that gary and his demons is "like rick and morty" and go out on a limb to say it is merely an honorable mention. i just watched the first episode of gary and his demons and i will watch more. its not horrible.. im not the "youre too stupid to watch rick and morty" kind of rick and morty fan, but rick and morty is rick and morty. its in its own class that nothing compares yet

CHU TORO Vor Monat
On top of all the various inaccuracies, let me chyme in with that the phrase "heximadecimal code" is nonsense. Hexadecimal is just a number system in base 16, as our typical decimal system is base 10. Would saying "decimal code" or "binary code" make sense? Maybe binary, because that is ultimately how things are represented at the level of transistors, but decimal and hexadecimal code reeks of nonsense, or someone trying to sound like they know what they are talking about when they don't.

Hello Nerdwriter, what about a game like MOTHER 2 (EarthBound) that has a few hundred music cues, many of which use lengthy samples ? The ending theme even has the composer saying, "I Miss You", not to mention the field recordings and samples from the Beatles, Beach Boys and more. How were these handled ? Potential followup vid ? Thank you !

MacKeeper Vor Monat
not that its not a rad track but like i dont think aquatic ambience is the best example to use, it doesn't really use the affordances inherent to the medium the innovation is how he managed to hack it into the system but i thinks its more interesting when composers use the limitations as a kind of aesthetic of its own
BloomSTRAD Vor Monat
It's a shame people have forgotten about how sound trackers are way better at compressing sound without sacrificing quality. This method of composition was widely used in video games until last decade, a good example I can think of is Bejeweled 2. The whole soundtrack of the game is contained within a single file.

Lord LunaEquie is me
A lot of my childhood in this video, including that Mark Rosewater quote. Also, as others have already pointed out, you're either misrepresenting the SNES or didn't do enough research to say that all the music and sound had to fit inside 64 KB of RAM. That's just not what RAM does.

Limitation breeding creativity was the force behind the genius of Vine. 7 seconds to fit as much of a story on video as possible. Think of the amount of different types of vines and their impact... all because a limit was placed.

There was definitely a lot of that too. But like youtube vloggers, an intelligent person will gravitate toward the smart ones.

Super video. I did not know this about the SNES. Only 64K. I can relate to this knowing about the commodore 64. I program in that so know how the hardware works. But I did not know this about the SNES. I only know if made good music. Watched this video the other day and the old Aquatic Ambiance song was in my head. Looked on my Logitech Media Server and found the CD I ripped years ago. DK Jamz the number 8 song.

Thank you for reminding me of the great video game composer, Nobuo Uematsu. He has composed music for every Final Fantasy game (including XV) and was currently working on the score for FFVII Remake. Unfortunately, a Google search revealed that he is experiencing health problems and will be taking the rest of the year off. I will be sending my best wishes to him and his family.
