If you have experimented with sound effects in Pico-8, you will be aware that you are limited to 32-notes per sound effect. So how can you get more ?

Well if you are not yet familiar with it, you can click this button HERE and then the instrument for this SFX will actually use a SFX from 0 (zero) to 7. You can see this when you type 0-7 for your instrument, it will appear in GREEN instead of the default PINK.

So this music is an example of a single SFX where 6 of the notes are played twice instead of once and by making that pattern an instrument, it frees up the space required to actually store two-notes at a time for that single SFX.

And you can also create custom instruments for your music as well this way.

If you found this helpful or have any questions, please let me know.
