I included a part from an other PMD3 arrangement. Who can find it? :P

Added "I Saw Something Again..."/"Strange Happenings" from Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky

...the most creepy song from PMD2. I'm still confused about the left hand in the first half of the piece. :o

Dusk, I don't think I've said this yet, so I'll say it now:
You're Post Town arrangement is absolutely impeccable. I'm not sure what I'm going to do once I get to the song in my arrangement project, because there's no way I could improve on it.
(Maybe 4-hands piano duet? That'd be fun, and original!)

(...)there's no way I could improve on it.(...)

But I'm pretty sure you could make it way more difficult to play!

Cannot listen to the arrangements atm, but the one I checked look pretty awesome. Need to check them out, when I get home!

Project MUS conversion - Dusk style! I figured it was time your arrangements stopped collected space dust. Hopefully I'll keep doing more:

"Heavy Rain" from Pokémon Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald
[MUS] [MIDI] [PDF]

The most notable change was that I put in 12/16 time (e.g. 12/8 but with 16ths as base). I thought your initial choice was interesting though! The accents are simply derived from syncopation though. I also added in the Fb for the pick-up measure.

More MUS conversion! This song was literally next in line on my PMD3DS arranging project, so it was only natural that I did it now, at long last:
(man you sure have a lot of "will be re-written by Bespinben" on the front page =P)

[3DS] Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity:

"That Is Odd...":
~brought to you by Dusk (Edited by Me)~
[MUS] [MIDI] [PDF]

The name of the song in the English track listing is actually "That Is Odd..." instead of "Strange" (which is the literal Japanese translation). Actually, I noticed the majority of the tracks in the OST list on your front page use these Japanese transliterations.

As for the arrangement itself, I only changed three things:
*Pizzicato chords needed an Eb, and there was no G. Also used cross staving to show they belonged to the same "voice".
*Took out the octave doubling on the melody; also there was a wrong note in m.1 for the bassoon line (you had Bb at the very end where there should be just an A)
*Inserted some dynamics

"Crossing The Sea" (Solo)

I tried to match everything as closely as possible. Let me know if I missed anything. I do have suggestions on things to change but I think I'll get back to my homework for now...

edit: I discussed some stuff with Bespinben; would you like us to make corrections and submit your sheets for you?

Sweet! It's on the sub board now!


Next up...
"Come on in to Post Town!" (Solo)
[MUS] [MIDI] [PDF] [Original]

I would suggest rewriting the whole thing with eighths with a swing feel. That should get rid of most of the visual clutter.
This was a piece of advice on Bespinben's version of the song. but I still think it applies to this sheet. When I learned this one, it took me quite a while to get the hang of the rhythms, and after re-writing a few measures in swing I felt this looked a lot cleaner and easier to read. Other notable changes:
~Number of clef changes drastically reduced. Most of the song fits pretty comfortably in the normal bass clef, with occasional 8vbs. (See measures 4-6, for example.)
~Same with ledger lines. (See measure 46-48, for example.)
~Redistribution of the work between the two hands. In particular, I found swapping the LH and RH parts in half of measure 7 more intuitive (see my performance for demonstration). Measure 51 is easier if the RH takes some of the work, as notated in the sheet. And for measure 63-64 I made it clear which notes to toss to the LH.

But of course, this is still your sheet; all the notes are there and it should sound the same as your MIDI, save for some articulation. If you disagree with any of this, just let me know!

Also, I'm not done yet. I still have to rework some smaller things like measure distribution and aesthetics, aligning swung eighths with triplets, keysig changes, articulations, and a couple of spots where I'd suggest changing the actual notes (measure 36, mostly) but yeah, it's mostly there :P

Although I'm still waiting for a huge update of my notation software (primus) before overgoing most of my arrangements I had to redo my "Cave and Side Path" arrangement for a new YouTube video. So here is a better version of it now:

OH HEY, it's this guy! Good to see ya. Love the new revision of Cave and Side Path.

Have you heard of a new notation program in development called "Dorico"? It's being made by Steinberg. You should definitely try it once it's released.

Thank you Bespinben for suggesting Dorico to me. I already love this software!
AND the MusicXML export + import to Finale works, even though with most of the dynamics and text being lost, minor changes in the notes and some error messages in Finale, but it works!!  ;D

Here is what I rewrote so far*:

Main Theme Epilogue from Crysis 2
PDF | XML
Menu Theme from DotA 2
PDF | XML

*I also made some small changes after playing these songs over and over on piano.

As always, let me know if you want any of your sheets to be MUS-ified for the site!
Thank you again for undertaking this work and props for your youtube channel as well. If your video quality and play skill keep getting better that fast, I'm afraid you'll surpass me one day. ;)

I guess this is about to happen. :P
