  1. I am very seriously going to begin learning how to mix in the near future, as if these old CD's I'm buying fails, it will be the only way to revive this song that I've had in my head for 1997. I have it note for note, perfect pitch and timbre, but I cannot find it.

    Anyway, my question is this: Is Reason 3 better than FL5? So far, I've heard that Reason is like, "hard to learn, but gives you more mastery/better results when you get good."

  2. Just a bump to note some new COMPENDIUM news BABY

    Kirite, the joint venture between the legendary Chrono scorer Yasunori Mitsuda and the series visionary Masato Kato, is set for release in May. Keep in mind that it isn't Chrono series related. It may seem familiar, as Mitsuda announced it in an interview back in January when he also noted that a Chrono Cross Arranged Version is on the way in July. Accordingly, he's set up a site for Kirite on his procyon-studio page:


    It's in Japanese, so I still have no idea what Kirite is. It is also up for preording from CDJapan. I think I'll buy one for scanning purposes and later, translation. CDJapan.com seems to be more than capable of shipping to the United States. You can pre-order Kirite at:


    Thanks to SleazyC for the links.

  3. Here's the touched up official art. In one stroke, the Compendium just owned the official art sections of every other Chrono site in existence.


    CuteLucca scans, Aitrus photoshopping. Feel free to use this in layouts and stuff.

    Edit: If there be disbelievers:


    The NPCs are the juicy ones. Other stuff is in here:


  4. Just as a neat bit of information, Singing Mountain's background has been revealed by Yasunori Mitsuda (in English). Though it was previously available on Procyon-Studio's Q&A page in Japanese, it's finally been translated.

    Yasunori Mitsuda was asked about the song's original intent at [http://www.procyon-studio.com/special/qa_2003b.html Procyon-Studio]; the question and response:

    (This is slightly paraphrased because the Japanese is a little more redundant than is grammatically acceptable in English.)

    クロノ・トリガー未収録曲[歌う山]ですが、あの曲がゲームの中に入っていないのがとても残念です。多分あの曲はク○ノが死んだ後のイベント死の山でしたっけか? ク○ノを復活させる為の山に挿入予定だったのでしょ? なんで没になったのでしょうか? とても良い曲なのに (生楽器生声で一度聞いてみたい)。それと[カエルのテーマ]もゲームでは前奏が入っていなくてCDでは入っている。どうしてゲームでは前奏を入れるのをやめてCDでは、入っているのでしょうか?

    About the not-yet-recorded Chrono Trigger song "Singing Mountain", it's really too bad it didn't make it into the game. Was the song for an event at Death Mountain after Crono dies? Was it planned to insert the song when going to the mountain to revive Crono? Why was it rejected? It's a very good song (I'd really love to hear it with live instruments and vocals). Also, the prelude to Frog's Theme wasn't included, but it was on the CD. Why was it in the CD, but not in the game?



    (From Mitsuda himself)

    There was a dungeon where that song was used, but because the dungeon didn't contain much and there were no problems or anything that advanced the game, it was cut. So inevitably the song was cut with it (*sniffle*). About Frog's Theme, because the prelude was meant to rise up during an event, the song starts out partway through, but since we took great pains with the CD it started from the prelude there.

    ''Thanks to JLukas for finding this and Arc Impulse for translating it.''
