Nobuo Uematsu's Synthesizers by G-Boy at 1:32 PM EST on December 16, 2016
I found this post about synthesizers that were used in SNES game music on reddit.

Some information from the post:

"[Nobuo Uematsu)'s been known to use E-MU and Kurzweil and Roland samples (especially in SNES Final Fantasy iterations. FF7's strings are literally a shortened Kurzweil, and FF8's strings are pretty much an unaltered rip of E-MU's signature strings)"

"Sony, who developed the soundchip for the SNES, provided a collection of samples to developers. I know for a fact that Top Gear's soundtrack was composed entirely with samples provided by Sony, and there may be several others. It's possible these samples didn't come from a rompler, like those you have mentioned, because Sony had (and still has) its own sound division, complete with a collection of instruments and synthesizers (not to be confused with romplers), used for creating sample CDs and system sounds."

"FF7's samples could have come from Sony but I actually did just find the hihats in a korg m1 sample bank!"

"Yeah Uematsu used the sc-88, a lot of samples I'm FF6 and chrono trigger were ripped right from the sc-88 too (timpani, oboe, trumpet, drums, etc)."

"So good news, I found the synth FF7 got a lot of its drum samples from. Turns out it was the Alesis D4, either that or the S4 since I'm assuming it could contain a lot of samples from the D4."

I also found this article that says Nobuo Uematsu used instruments from the Roland SC-55 and SC-88 in the most of his earlier material.

Could somebody point me in the right direction?

The mid register sound the plays at the beginning and through the rest of this song most prominently, playing D and then an octave up.

I was racking my brain, thinking it might be some rompler harp, but all harp romplers sound very tinny in comparison.

I'm thinking it might be some bell-like sound, but I'm really at a loss.

So not really looking for a definitive where it may come from, but just what sort of sound it could be classified as, to make it easier to find.

A Few Things I Noticed by naf4947 at 12:30 AM EST on December 27, 2016
Hey, I'm new to this forum but this is something I've been thinking about for years and noticed a few interesting things.

First, the drum loop at the very beginning of the Greenhouse track from Hotwheels Stunt Track Driver (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-wRkHjFo9o) is exactly the same as a drum loop from Glover (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gz-qt3BL9u8). I don't know their source but I do know they're the same.

Second, the drum fill at the very beginning of Bubbly Washing Machine from Super Monkey Ball 2 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlPrvJx3epk) sounds extremely similar to the fill at the beginning of Shake It by Sistar, although that one is pretty processed (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9-TIy7WPQI). I don't know the source for these, or even if they are the same fill, but they sound close enough to me that it's possible.

And third, I have a Korg 01W soundfont and one of the patches called Animotion I know I've heard in a game somewhere before, but I can't remember the game. Here is a sample of what it sounds like, the rising scalar pattern is what I really feel like I remember from a game somewhere. (https://www.dropbox.com/s/kfcsep104mozj13/animotion.wav?dl=0)

I find more jv1080 samples, but this sample was used a lot in timesplitters which was composed by Graeme Norgate.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6DmpUdpgUqU

The music box in the beginning is a preset call Childlike in the jv1080.

More Samples from the jv1080 it appears goldeneye tend to use the midi vibraphone a lot.

@baggagelizard
Isn't that the same pipe organ that was used in the Ganon's Tower theme from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time?
