    • https://youtu.be/wnNmK30KBRs Okay, this theme has been in my mind for the past 18 months or so. A friend of mine I met here on YouTube and then Discord came with this suggestion 18 months, and by then I really didn't know what it was. But as soon as I started listen to it I slowly started to remember that I played this game at my dad's apartment (after my parents divorce which is another sad story for another time).¬† However, the memories coming back to me with this music isn't sad at all, it's amazing what music can bring forth from any period of your life, despite if it was a tough or lovely period. What about this song then, it contains many hard elements and harmonies to write down by ear, but with enough time on my back with it I think I managed to make it sound as I wanted. I started off by writing down the exact song to stay true and close to the original. I really love the beginning and the build up. I then gently gave it a touch of "myself" by adding my lead synth and make the chords somewhat fatter. Then I go all in on my standard instrumentation, adding some new melodies and solos. After that a new section with an original melody and chords that crash into a half tempo section with the main theme. Finishing off with the intro tones, chords and a build-up FX. I didn't make this remix that long, I don't want to wear out this fantastic song too much. It's one of the most genious compositions I've ever heard in video game music. So good.¬†
    • Ah, I am not a composer so I didn't think it would be put in that category, I'm just a lowly media consumer that has a dream I would like to come into fruition! Haha. I didn't think it would be that or more expensive to make a remix that would just be a main melodies and short looping works instead of a long 3-5 min elaborate tune. Tbh, a simple tracker with the same/similar instruments used in game would be fine. Heck, you could use a little free or cheap music composing program. I have Maestro on my phone I'm trying to fiddle with and learn stuff. I know that's different from my original ask, I'm thinking of how I can make it easier for everyone.¬† I tend to think of the end results of in bits, haha. I'd most likely have to tweak them to match the SNES capabilities as it's rather specific on how songs work on it. (Certain voices have to be played first/have priority, etc etc) I suppose I am not aware of how things would cost in general for this kinda thing. Question, other than the sheet music, what would be better to use to get the note information?¬† I'm thinking, if a tracker was used, I may be able to just use that.¬†¬†
    • Hey, this response is unnecessarily antagonistic. I also agree that this is a big ask and $170 a pop is actually a bargain, but you can express that without all of the bold text indignation. I mean it's not like he's not asking you personally to do it. Also weird to get all mad about a post from July. It's also not your concern if something is posted in the wrong forum or not. Recruit & Collaborate is probably a better fit, and I'll move this there, but it's a pretty honest mistake. -- @Zye84 I'm glad you understand that this is commission work that'll cost money, but you've gotta understand that this is a big ask. If you really want to see this done, you're gonna have to be realistic about costs.
    • An arrangement of the Minish Village theme with woodwinds and electric piano. It's a pretty faithful arrangement, but if there's potential I might work in some original interpretation for submission! ¬† ¬†
