Toshinden by emperor bohe at 11:42 PM EDT on October 14, 2022
Does anyone happen to know what sound sources were used on Battle Arena Toshinden? Is that a Korg M1 piano on Sofia's theme? I've always loved the vibe of this soundtrack haha. Love the synths too.

Lufia SNES Sound Sources Revealed (General, Not Specific) by MeteoXavier at 11:58 PM EST on November 17, 2022
Howdy y'all, long-time lurker and first-time poster with something potentially useful.

So, like a lot of weebs, I'm Facebook friends with loads of Japanese composers and game devs. One of them is Yasunori Shiono, who is famous for his work on the Estpolis/Lufia game series. He goes long periods without getting on Facebook, but he recently started coming back on and I posted on his wall asking what he used as the source instruments for the original SNES Estpolis/Lufia games. With the disclaimer in mind that he wouldn't be able to remember too clearly that far back (which is fair, it was almost 30 years ago), he told me he remembered using a Roland SC8820 for the instruments and Goldwave for extracting them for Estpolis/Lufia II.

The conversation got kinda interesting at that point. I asked him if he meant a Roland SC88 as the SC8820 didn't come out until 1999. He posted back with a laugh conceding he got it wrong and that it was the SC88Pro. The next message in that thread came from Yukio Nakajima who I was also friends with and didn't know also worked on the Lufia II games (the original and the DS remake) and wrote this:

"塩生 康範 There was no SC8820 or GoldWave(Windows) around Estopolis biography 1-2 lol
The sound sources used are as follows.
・AKAI SG01k
・Roland SC-55
Roland CM-64
・Alesis D4"

That was the end of the thread and I didn't inquire further. I always felt like it wasn't obvious which MIDI sound source the Lufia I and II games' instruments came from like so many other games, so this provides some great foundation work for putting those two games on the discovery list and figuring out which song uses what.

This is my big contribution to the thread. Please enjoy!
