  1. Well, I've been at this for a while, and I think it's beyond my brain. I extracted wav samples from the sf2 file, and that's about as far as I got. How I'm supposed to loop it all together (using what?) is beyond me. I got something called vienna and I felt like I was staring at the controls of an alien spaceship. I really can't do it myself, I need to hire an expert of some sort, but it's such obscure stuff recreating those sounds, I worry that it might be a secret recipe that only Uematsu knows using antique machines I did find this though. Seems like they are using the sf2 file, sticking to the instruments that sound good (flute, strings2, and the brass instruments)
  2. Wow, a ton of information in this thread. I appreciate all the suggestions. The looping thing makes sense. So when it plays a half note, it is actually a bunch of shorter notes stitched together, and the end/beginning doesn't line up, causing the cracks. I get those when looping something like a waterfall sound effect, though I usually just crossfade in those situations. The FFVII music files are in psf format. I don't know if that makes a difference, since most of the discussion here is around spc format. My goal is to mimic the sound of the FFVII ost to the point that you can't tell the difference. I want to create new compositions but with the authentic playstation FFVII sound. I know there are better sounds out there, but I am going for the retro nostalgia factor. There are many accurate psf players, so I don't see why that quality can't be translated to a midi sequencing program...anyway I am eager to try out some of these programs and see what happens
  3. Jeebus! I've never heard such a good fake orchestra in all my life. Also that composition! Zane is one talented individual!
  4. Hello! I am currently working on a project that uses the FFVII soundfont (I have my reasons). The soundfont has loads of problems (listen to the crackles on that clarinet), but that's another story. My issue right now is finding the right software for turning it into music that sounds good (i.e. similar quality to Final fantasy VII). I tried FL studio but it doesn't support sf2 format and I really can't stand the interface. I am currently using Anvil Studio, AKA the MS Paint of music. If you've ever used it you know how insanely limited it is. I enjoy the simple interface and the fact that it's free, but I need something that lets me control more than just pitch, length, and volume of a note. P.S. my only equipment is my computer, if that matters. Thanks! --Arthur
  5. I got sennheiser 280s and they are a pain in the ass. The sound leakage is so bad you can use them as speakers. There is zero bass, which caused me to mix my sound into a hitachi vibrator and not even know it. I mean, maybe that's how it's supposed to work and I'm just ignorant? Mixing on headphones is pretty much a nightmare.
