dj4uk6cjm: Sorry, just got around to trying your new soundfont and its great and wanted to point out that SOLIA sound is used in twilight princess, mainly the wolf+midna cutscenes and is not exclusive to the TP soundfont so its surprising to hear it in yours.

dj4uk6cjm: I love it and hope you decide to work on it again in the future as for me I haven't done much lately except this which may or may not generate interest. I think I'm going to quit my music hobby soon

dj4uk6cjm: and go back to animation.

punk7890™: Cool remix. I can't really be bothered to make any music or remixes at the moment either. Haven't been feeling music since early December. It'll probably come back though.

punk7890™: Finished a new song. here Take a guess on where the timpani, snares and the french horns are from.

dj4uk6cjm: Those instruments from mother 3 or hyper canvas is all I'm getting from it :p but it sounds awesome!

dj4uk6cjm: I can't stop thinking about this new kirby song I've been singing to myself lately, it's a water level oriented theme so it sounds nice and something like aqua star or ripple field. Whenever I get around to hooking up walkband to my keyboard I can make it.
Jan 30, 2015 22:32:46 GMT -5
punk7890™: They could be from Mother 3. I've never listened to the soundtrack so I wouldn't know. The timpani comes from a SC-55, the horns and snares from a SC-88. I think the cymbals come from a orchestral expansion board for the JV series.

punk7890™: Oddly enough the choir is used a lot by Hitoshi Sakimoto. And yeah the kirby series has some awesome hummable tunes and melodies.
Jan 31, 2015 1:27:51 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: Yeah the timpani, horns and maybe the snare (unsure about the last one) sounds like mother 3 but they could be from the libraries you're describing, I wish I had a real SC-88. Probably has some amazing sounds.

dj4uk6cjm: You think nintendo composers might move up to newer VST's or soundbanks on the market now for their new games? They seem to like to reuse old ones even when we found out not all of them like logic are that old as people in general still use them today.

punk7890™: Roland sound modules are excellent. If you ever decide to get one, I'd go for a JV1010. It comes with all sounds from the JV1080, 2080 and a session expansion board. I think you can get them for around $200 now. I'll probably get one sometime

exciter: They'll stick with the Skyward Sword formula, I believe. 'Moving up' to more recent software and hardware is often a pain, sticking with what has worked in the past tends to be the preferable option in my experience.

exciter: They reuse familiar sounds for continuity purposes. It's why many songs from the series are often instantly recognizable as Zelda songs.
Feb 8, 2015 19:28:53 GMT -5
exciter: I wouldn't describe the music from Nintendo games as being particularly VST-based, either. Always sample-based
Feb 8, 2015 19:31:15 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: Your right about nintendo games being mostly sample based and all, in that case I hope they make completely new songs for the game and release a soundtrack.
Feb 13, 2015 2:52:21 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: Hows your zelda sampler coming along by the way exciter, any new progress made?
