and she seems to do it quite well. :)
standard oddigy-style monolithic chunk o' wow can be found here, in about 10 minutes (still uploading) -
I recorded it directly from VGMTrans, with a little reverb to help it sound less flat. On a few of the tracks (there are 48 total, I think, not counting the one dupe that snuck in there) there are some borked-sample pops, but it's not intrusive. Heck, this is that "preview before you buy the OST" thing anyway, so it's not perfect on purpose.
file expires in a week, as per the usual.
There a couple of surprisingly rocking tracks in here. Most of the music is well-done, albeit not particularly notable. The piano work is impressive. I'll probably try redoing a few tracks on a better synth later this week.
What do you guys think?
I appreciate the effort, but man, VGMTrans-rendered DS music can be pretty hard to listen to sometimes. Something in my head is always saying "this can't be what it sounds like, even remotely". I understand it's not perfect and probably won't be perfect for some time or ever, but sometimes it kind of feels like listening to random MIDIs off VGMusic.com. Not to sound ungrateful to you or the program's creator....
That said, this certainly sounds like Shimomura's work (for, uh, obvious reasons!), and I can already tell there's some stuff to look forward to on the OST. Here's hoping Square does a good job with it. Thanks!
man, Shimomura's upbeat themes are always great.
