  1. Let's be real here - soundfont versions of SNES or game-sampled stuff has iffy quality at its absolute best. Technology has improved on it by now. You can make your own Cyan flute with a super short grace note at the beginning of a note one or two half-steps above the pitch you're trying to do and then have it vibrate with modulation.
  2. Howdy. Today I present you our nearly long-lost interview with Hiroki Kikuta that was done during development of the Seiken Densetsu 3 ocremix project. For some reason, this interview was very difficult to keep a hold on, we lost the first version that Jahan Zoltan graciously helped us with in translation and I'm still embarrassed that I asked him to do it again after that, and then there were some obstacles in getting it posted where people could read it after that. I've been in the web development/marketing/blogging industry for 16 years and I'd never had a document be so slippery! But thankfully I was recently able to recover it once again (this thing is cursed by Annabelle, I swear) and to make it easiest all the way around for everyone, I just had it posted to my websites www.meteoxavier.com and www.jslawhead.com with credits going where credit is due. Proper linked version is here: http://www.jslawhead.com/2019/02/my-interview-with-hiroki-kikuta-seiken.html Thank you and please enjoy.
  3. Sigh... I confirm that Fruity Soundfont player does not appear to work on 64-bit FL Studio. Some months ago I put FL Studio 11 on my laptop and put on the 64-bit version only to find that Fruity Soundfont player does not load on it. I tried some other soundfont VSTs, but I wasn't satisfied with any of them. I may suggest abandoning the concept of trying to play Soundfonts entirely as they are really outdated for use today. There are no soundfonts that equal the quality you can get from some affordable VSTs now and if it's difficult to even load them into a DAW, it's a sign it's time to move on. The VST I've been touting for folks who still want an all-around package that has major affordability, reasonably small size and really respectable/usable quality is Xpand! 2 by AIR. https://www.airmusictech.com/product/xpand2#.XGMCHvnavIU . This is like a modern Roland Sound Canvas with a full range of the necessary instruments and you can usually find it >$20. I bought mine for $1 legitimate and I'm genuinely pretty impressed with it for what it is. I think that's where the proper substitute for soundfonts holds in modern times. With the right effort, you could really make a pretty good remaster of FFVII music with Xpand 2 alone in my opinion.

    Used PS4 Pricetag

    The most you get for it is whoever offers to buy it for the highest price. Used PS4s are rather common and without knowing much more of the condition yours is in, it's not easy for us to provide an answer that's worthwhile to you. Try gauging with this: https://www.pricecharting.com/console/playstation-4
  5. Who knows. The core problem with finding worthwhile music work is the overwhelming supply of musicians versus the comparatively little demand for it (in a nutshell), and a service like this is unlikely to change that. Then again, I've been pleasantly proven wrong about plenty of things that went on to be successful, so it's worth being openminded about it.
  6. This appears to be a pretense to some sort of music employment platform/enterprise you are connected to building.

    Inspirational OC ReMixers. Ego food donations.

    I misread this topic resurrection as "International OC Remixers: Need Food Ego." and I thought we were doing a clever sequel to it or something. Sadly, this was not to be...

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    I do have storyline issues with Resident Evil having a concept such as Nemesis and what essentially amounts to his "rough draft" being let loose in the same city at the same time, but as I couldn't handle Resident Evil 3 with Nemesis from a gameplay point of view (I've only played the first hour of Resident Evil 3 before stopping and now Nemesis shows up in my Resident Evil-themed nightmares) I suppose to me that's moot. I don't have any way to play the new Resident Evil 2, but maybe that's a good thing. I've seen some video of it and I don't think I could handle playing the game. Maybe a little bit scared (and this comes from a guy who has actual supernatural experience in his past AND present) but I also think the super-improved upon everything and huge everything else might be more than I can handle all the way around.

    It's not Nemesis, it's sort of his "proto-predecessor" of sorts. The idea of Nemesis surely came out of the creature referred to here in RE2.

    Album Artwork Costs??

    I'd always done my own album artwork, except for one re-issue, and I don't think I'd spent a penny on it yet. Use of places like snappygoat.com, which is my understanding that almost everything, if not more, is all public domain, use of some free online graphic editors, sometimes GIMP, a little elbow grease and a modicrum of taste can certainly do an indie album cover wonders without spending anything resembling coin. I recommend you try some of that. And before you ask: unfortunately, I'm not available for work right now. I have no indication you were ever going to ask me for work, but I'm putting it out there anyway.

    What is this synth called?

    Yeah, it's just a sine wave and a bunch of glide, and then you can tailor the other effects to taste. Most synth plugins will have some version of it under a lot of different names - but it's usually called "Hip-Hop lead" or something to do with rap music as it used to be used in a lot of hip hop songs from the 90s and early 2000s as a high pitch riff of sorts, and it's more generally what people might use it for now.

    Crowdfunded Projects (Kickstarter, Patreon, etc.)

    Hello everyone, it's your favorite hyperbolic aspie ludditic depressive anti-establishment two-faced three-faced four-faced orthopedic quadropedic toxic bellicose dilatory histrionic intransigent platitudinous rhadamanthine spasmodic Overclocked music machine with a Kickstarter to throw your way: This is a high art, high concept point and click adventure game to which I am doing music, occasional text clean-up and some advertising for. I have been attached to this project for a while now and it is, to date, my highest profile professional effort to date. With a successful kickstarter, I will be able to continue my music services using a combination of: * Resident Evil-style dark ambiance with orchestral overtones. * Gothic organ, gothic choirs and leitmotifs. * Industrial percussion and synthesizer effects. * Silent Hill-style experimentation on the above. * Probably more! Please have a look and consider sharing it around if you feel so inclined. Thank you!
