Thanks to all artists for being patient with us & trusting @prophetik music's leadership on release scheduling; we took a bit longer, yes, but the music & presentation did benefit. Very proud of this release; Arcadia Legends was amazing & you've followed it up with something amazing, and kicked off 2019 in Q1 in a *great* way.
Special shout out to @Jorito for musical AND code contributions, too, as he provided a very complete website which we only tweaked minimally... really helped. I wanted to somehow animate the caustics that were added, but ran out of time for proper implementation.
Credit to all, but extra tip of the hat to Brad for effective coordination & responsible/thoughtful direction... as with DFW & our previous album, I feel like communication was always effective & deliberation productive.
I didn't play Chrono Cross, but I've known & loved its soundtrack over the years, often through mixes featured on the site. Now I love it even more; there's an organic, passionate vein that flows through Chronopolis, but with individual tracks still distinguishing themselves stylistically & through genre. It feels diverse in form, but unified in function, and that's something I personally enjoy in an arrangement album, because it's something I *also* enjoy about many game soundtracks themselves. There are moments of awe, moments of wonder, moments of beauty, moments of joy... with each emotion expressed in a fashion that serves it quite well. Excellent stuff!
If it needs an album, maybe a request could work to the public. I can't argue it's a really great soundtrack.
As far as Midi's goes. This one was easy, because it's really melody, bass and a noise channel (Or as i call it, the drums). For me, the earlier the system, for easier it is...honestly, despite the fact that some NES soundtracks can be a pain to transcribe, because of the instrumentation or rhythm. Oh well, the important thing, it's accurate and easier to work with.
Good luck on your entry anyways.
All those Godzilla MID's at Vgmusic have that issue. I struggled with the Chidora song before for a PRC (321) but I managed to get a song for that round. I also created and posted an alternative MIDI like TheVideoGamer did for that round. This is mainly the reason why I only pick those Godzilla as a source when I know that it's a multiple source round. Still I think that the music of that game is awesome and deserves an album.
With the MID posted by TheVideoGamer there's only one conclusion for sure for me: I have to enter this round.
