Music / Transcription of Cackletta's Theme
« on: April 22, 2018, 06:38:14 PM »
Hi, it's me again!
I'd like to try play Cackletta's theme from Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, as I really like it. I could perhaps transcribe it myself, but I figured that because it is quite popular someone might already have it notated. :) I Googled, but could only find notations for piano, with two staves instead of three.

Music / Favourite Soundtrack per platform
« on: May 18, 2017, 07:49:57 AM »
Hey! I wrote this thread for another forum a while ago, but I thought it might be interesting to share it here as well, as this forum is largely about video game music, after all. :)

Hi, it's me again!

I've had this idea for a while now, but never made it, and thought somebody would've beat me to it by now. But apparently not.
I'm interested, though: what's your favourite soundtrack per platform? Obviously, you'll probably only be able to list those for platforms you know quite a few soundtracks on.
Keep in mind there are many soundtracks I don't know very well, but if I see any soundtracks on somebody's list I haven't fully listened to yet, I hope to check them out!

This would be my own list at the moment:

Nintendo Entertainment System: Super Mario Bros., Koji Kondo. With only the most basic of tools at his disposal, Kondo succeeded in creating a soundtrack that wouldn't get repetitive and would stay fun even after 30 years!!
Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Donkey Kong Country 2, David Wise. This soundtrack is totally genius. Such a masterpiece, with many different themes, and for all, the atmosphere was set flawlessly. Stunning stuff.
Gameboy: Super Mario Land, Hirokazu Tanaka. So simple at its core, yet so incredibly well executed. These tunes are timeless.
Atari ST: Lotus III: The Ultimate Challenge, Patrick Phelan. I love the ST's soundchip, and Phelan made the most out of it for this soundtrack, I think. All themes are awesome.
Playstation: Rayman, RĂ©mi Gazel. A very impressive soundtrack. That's what it is.
Gameboy Color: Wario Land 3, Kozue Ishikawa. With very basic building stones, Kozue Ishikawa put very much thought into every one of her tunes. And as I learn more about music, I keep getting astonished by what went into these pieces.
Nintendo 64: Super Mario 64, Koji Kondo. Koji Kondo did it again. With some remixes, and many entirely new ideas, he composed another wonderful experience.
PC: SimCity 3000, Jerry Martin et al. This soundtrack features both new-age and jazz music, and both styles were captured perfectly, to my ears. Every single theme is unique, and it'd be hardly possible to choose a favourite, as every single one is a masterpiece and a great work of art.
Gameboy Advance: Mario Kart Super Circuit, Kenichi Nishimaki et al. Unfortunately these themes had to be compressed quite a bit to get onto the GBA, but when ripped they still sound great. The samples are very nice, the melodies, base lines, drums et cetera are super cool, and the whole thing simply fits very well together.
GameCube: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Kenta Nagata et al. A very well-crafted soundtrack, with a lovely atmosphere.
Wii: Super Mario Galaxy, Mahito Yokota, Koji Kondo. This soundtrack is grand. It's definitely worthy of the grand game. Very beautiful.
Wii U: Yoshi's Woolly World, Tomoya Tomita, Misaki Asada. The soundtrack to Yoshi's Island, composed by Koji Kondo, is one of my favourite soundtracks of all time. This soundtrack beat it. It has quite a high number of themes, and they're all amazing. Some cute, some happy, some scary, some awesome; all very, very well-made. Great job.

It was nice writing that, but I'm also interested in reading other lists! Don't worry, they don't need to be as detailed as this one. :P

Music / How to make one note last longer than the others?
« on: May 07, 2017, 02:34:15 PM »
Hello, I'm currently arranging Snow Land, from Mario Kart: Super Circuit.
There are some things that seem hard to write, but achievable to play. A relatively simple example is this one:

I'd want to make the selected (orange) note last as if it was a full note, while the other notes from the chord should remain chord. How would I write this?

Music / Looking for software to play MIDI to a keyboard
« on: March 19, 2017, 03:33:09 PM »
On Atari ST, I've got some software called Midi Music Maker, which lets me play midi files (or any sequencer files, really) on my keyboard. I can even configure what instruments the keyboard should use.
I could try to copy that onto my pc and use an Atari ST emulator, but I would like to know: might there be software available for Windows to do the same thing?

Hi, it's me again!

I don't think I ever shared my performances at this forum before, and I just refound this section. Playing sheet music from this site and actually having them featured somewhere? Hm, seems cool. I guess I'll look through my uploads and see which videos were of sheets on this site (lately I've been playing music by ear or transcribing it myself, but there are some earlier recorded ones using sheet music from here)
When I first started recording, for some reason I filmed my entire self and a bit of the room instead of only the piano. Oh well, not too big of a problem, I think, you can still see what I'm playing anyway.
I'm not sure if all of these are usable, but some might be. After all, I never recorded these to be featured anywhere else than my own YouTube channel, but I definitely wouldn't mind them getting used somewhere. This does mean I occasionally made some changes diverting from the sheets, though, but judge for yourself.

K.K. Aria (Aircheck) - Animal Crossing - The Deku Trombonist:
Room Before Boss - Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island - Olimar12345:
File Select - Super Mario 64 - The Deku Trombonist:*
Map Screen (Daytime) - Wario Land 3 - Cryo:
The Frigid Sea - Wario Land 3 - Cryo:
Bouncy Wario - Wario Land II - Arqivus:
Story Music Box - Super Mario World 2:** Yoshi's Island - Olimar12345:

*This video is quite goofy and probably unusable, but I'd like to share it anyway :P
**The audio for this video seems to get slightly out of sync with the video as it goes on.

As I said, I'm not sure if many if any of these will be usable as I didn't record them with the purpose of being used and such they might be a bit unorthodox, but oh well, else I've just shared them for fun, in a slightly inappropriate section! ;)

Music / I just realised the piano I'm using has only 85 keys
« on: August 17, 2016, 03:37:38 PM »
Hi, it's me again!

I was playing some piano at my grandma's today, as I wanted to record some YouTube videos and she has the best feeling and best sounding piano I've ever played on.
I just now realised it has 85 instead of 88 keys.
I don't know how I didn't realise this before :P
It's never been a problem, though, I've never played something that needs keys that high.

Music / Looking to play a piano duet, skilled average or lower
« on: January 06, 2016, 04:26:29 PM »
For an assignment for school I want to do a duet with myself, recording two parts separately and putting them together. (I'm not sure how I'll edit that, last time I thought I did it perfectly but nope... any tips for that are welcome too!)
I'm not great at piano like many of you probably are, but I taught myself through practice. This is an example of something I did to perhaps get an idea of my skill level:
I looked around this site, but couldn't fight anything that seemed doable.
Another thing is that it should be 5 minutes long, but I can combine parts. But most video game themes are so short that I'd need to paste like 5 of them together, which doesn't seem very reasonable.

So if anyone knows one or two parts written for two pianos that's not too difficult, please tell!
