  1. i should mention, the reason i'm using soundfonts is because i have soundfonts of specific things, like for instance a soundfont of all the sounds from zelda ocarina of time.
  2. aaand, i can't say that switching between patches in DSK SF2 is any easier than in the fruity soundfont player... seems to me to be the exact same. =|
  3. lol, now i have a new problem, which is that i can't easily open a soundfont from the browser on the left into the DSK SF2 vst because FL studio wants to open the soundfont player instead. so i gotta add new channel -> dsk sf2 and then from there browse to my soundfonts. oof.
  4. sorry for taking so long to get back to this. thank you! unfortunately my keyboard doesn't have any knobs i can use. and yeah i'm using the fruity soundfont player. the computer i'm on has FL studio version 12. maybe i'll try one of those alternate soundfont players. it's too bad i don't have money to just get a better midi controller.
  5. I'm using FL Studio on a laptop connected to a MIDI keyboard. Is there an easier way to go to the next patch than clicking and dragging? I have some tendonitis/carpal tunnel issues, so I'm always looking for the easiest most ergonomic ways to do things. This is a bit of a newbie question I feel like. but yeah.
  6. Heh, I added that riff mainly to lessen the chances of the judges saying "NO NEW MATERIAL; I GIVE IT A NO", but yeah.. it did turn out to be a pretty decent riff didn't it? EDIT: Nvm, I assumed you were talking about the melody that first appears @ about 0:58 . I suppose the word you were looking for (for 1:40) might be "jam" or something similar. xD Thank you very much. Glad you enjoyed it! =)
  7. Hey, all! The maker of this remix is here once again to say thank you so much for all of your comments (including the criticisms about the phoniness of the samples: it's quite true). And thanks for helping me get them to label the correct tunes used too! I was wondering if it'd ever happen. =D And to Noir, zomg, that's awesome. I'd love to perform it with you some time live! Hehe. Very much obliged, everyone. =)

    P.S. Re: my one remix, Secret Seashells, the songs remixed listed are House by the Bay, Outset Island (from Wind Waker), and Tal Tal Heights.

    Tal Tal Heights is wrong.

    The other two are basically correct..

    I think of Outset Island as Aryll's Theme, but it's the same theme and other remixes are already also classified as that.

    Though "Mabe Village" would be really more fitting than "House by the Bay". It's what the remix is mainly of.. and yes HbtBay IS a toned down version of the same theme, but there aren't other remixes already classified under either "Mabe Village" or "House by the Bay".

    I figure there's a lot to be done and this might be pretty trivial crap, but if you or anyone does change the songs remixed field for Secret Seashells, I'd say make it Mabe Village, Outset Island, and also included technically are When Link First Wakes, and Zelda's Lullaby.

    *exhales* Sorry for epic double post. Cheers. :-o

    Hiya there, I hope you're the right person to talk to about this. Either way it's not very urgent or anything.

    I'm Miku. On my remixer page ( http://ocremix.org/artist/4583/miku ), one of the links is pointed at where my old Myspace used to be. I no longer have a Myspace. Now the link goes to some chick's page.

    Anyway, I'm sure people will realize it's not me and perhaps chuckle, but the link should probably be removed by whomever this concerns when they get a chance, if for no one else's sake but this.. imposter Miku! lol. Anyway.

    Have a wonderful today & tomorrow. Miku signing out.

  10. Is it in song mode (not pattern mode) and is everything on the playlist?
  11. Don't do that. Just practice scales until you know the keys well. Any shortcut you take will only ingrain bad habits.
  12. For TL;DR, skip to * below. Over the years, I always took pride in that long after the N64's time, while many people had sticky, loose, broken controllers, mine were still in great shape. Until recently in my life, I still had multiple good-working N64 controllers. I found a new girlfriend and our N64 collections merged. We moved a few times. We're down to like one of her now kinda good 1st party controllers and one of mine, also my fully-functioning but shitty as fuck 3rd party controller with stubby arms. Now we're in a living situation where a bunch of people are playing Nintendo 64, and we have the only good controllers. I've talked my friend into getting a few so that people don't have to be using ours too much. Ours are now finally showing the first signs. The noticeable white build-up, the slightly uneven resistance in different directions.. * So anyway, the point of this thread though is I wanna ask: It seems like it's hard or impossible to find reasonably 'new' quality 1st party controllers. It does seem like it's possible to find controllers ranging from slightly worse than ours to slightly better than ours, in a sort of random grab bag kind of fashion, over the internet anyway. I'm weighing my options as to whether I should: A) Order some 1st party controllers that claim to be in great condition over the internet. Go on a journey to far away vintage video game stores, where I can inspect and feel any controllers before buying them. or C) Are any of the 3rd party controllers which are still available new-in-packing, good enough to be worth it? Are the joy-sticks similar feeling but better working than Nintendo's? Do any of the controllers have an overall shape close enough to the original controller that I won't vomit while trying to use one? (This © is one of the most key questions here, because it's hard to get reputable reviews on some of this crap.. [it also happens to be the only part of this entire post containing question marks...)
  13. If you really want to be ridiculous and roundabout, alter the pitch seperately after exporting (in Soundforge or something or even Edison), but before exporting, divide your project's BPM by (1+the % you're increasing the pitch by). e.g. bpm / 1.5 (33% slower) pitch * 1.5 (50% higher) = 50% higher, same speed To actually answer your question though.. if you like being able to quickly turn up the pitch of an entire project, you're probably SoL at least with FLStudio. For one thing, you'll never get the master pitch knob to affect audio clip tracks.
  14. Thank you for that. Those are perfectly logical reasons. To prophet, I've no qualms with this, with the fact that his using roman numerals may be not the best way to state it. But again, he added a clarification right after, in his initial post, naming all the chords in the sequence. Thus I fail to see how his post did not contain all the necessary information to communicate his progression and stand by the view that you were a bit needlessly pompous and harsh with him.
  15. And LA mix probably isn't gonna happen. Getting an upright piano moved in here at some point within the next month, but lord knows I can't find my god damn microphone stands and probably forgot most of my arrangement idea anyway. (though I did make notes...) But yeah, probably not gonna happen.
