Tune Contest 23/08 to 30/08
« on: 23 Aug 2003, 11:59 »
Right, this week's tune contest is... write a character theme for the love interest in a game. The theme would be played whenever the character is on-screen, or if something else related to him/her is happening. Apart from that there are no restrictions! If you're stuck for inspiration I would suggest finding a MIDI of Nobuo Uematsu's "Aeris Theme" from FF7 - it's a classic. Good luck!

I didn't spend much time on it, and it sucks, and it ends abruptly, and it's not very good, but here it is!

I wish I could play it.  What software is required to view the file, Gromhak?

The latest versions of Winamp 2 or 3 should do it.

Edit: Ghormak, WOW! The samples you used for that piece are absolutely awesome :x

Yes. Give them to me. :P

The piano, however, is... uhm... well. You know.

Anyway, neat. And of course, I'll participate in this one.

Could everyone perhaps post a .mid or tracker file along with the mp3/ogg?

Tis interesting to see how the submissions are constructed.

Come now loominous, your ear should be 1337 enough to tell how it's constructed just by listening ^_^ ;)

I don't know how useful this is, but here's the .it file without samples:

No, don't ask for one with samples still in it. Too big, too big.

Can I have the... oh, I see. :P

Well, mine, incidentally, is coming along. Don't worry.

Edit: By the way, loominous, is a Sibelius file okay for you?

Sure, fine by me but I d guess that if you d export it as a .mid file then more people would be able to view it . On the other hand I might be the only one interested in these things.

So I guess it depends on the general interest. Would anyone else appreciate .mid files?

I think since Sibelius can export midi files with no hassle, that would be preferable, although on the other hand, it's nice having a neatish looking score available to look at. What the hey, why not upload both?

Good point, Archangel. I'll upload both.

And loominous... if no one else is interested in that, then... I pity everyone else. :P

I recognize Ghormak's samples for his entry. They're straight off of the Alesis Classical QCard.

Hardware, that, Geoffkhan? Has it been released as a sample CD or whatever?

It's on one of those little PC cards (PCMCIA card, ROM card, whatever you want to call it). The card holds 8 megs of samples and costs like $200. The samples are high quality and very usable, but it's still not a very good deal. The interesting thing is that the blank PC cards cost just as much as these ones.

Anyways, I own the Classical QCard and the Vintage Synthesizers QCard. They all plug into my Alesis QS6. I'm thinking of taking all the samples on the cards and on the synth and turning them (or most of them) into a SoundFont for distribution.

$200 for 8mb? Jeez. Even if it's a top quality 8mb that's still a bit much.

Damn. I only have 700MBs.
Where do you get it all?

You know, I used to have like 6 gigs of soundfonts, but I had to delete a few.

I also have a 140 meg drumkit. It's really great.
