Many Thanks @peronmis

I have been following this thread for a very long time now and I am always really excited about the findings here.
I would like to talk about some of my own findings.

I recently got my hands on E-MU EIIIX sample CDs (1994) and I found that a lot of patches from volume 2 in particular were used in Klonoa 1 and 2.
Most notably the pizzicato patches.

Here's the original track.

This is my own recreation with the same samples.

There are also a lot of other patches from those CDs used in there, the solo violin from the credits theme also seems to be an exact match.

I got these CDs very recently, so I am still looking into finding out where those samples were used.


Another big library I got my hands on is the Peter Siedlaczek collection (1997). And oh boy, this thing was used EVERYWHERE in the late 90s and early 2000s! Every orchestral track by K. Tajima from Klonoa 2, the majority of Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Mr. Driller, Soul Calibur 2 and probably a lot more games.

The collection also has a number of pre-recorded orchestral performances (Orchestral Colours) which appeared often in video game soundtracks.
The one performance that caught my eye is called "A breath of Air".

It was used in these games:

Also, Go Shiina did something clever and used this exact sample in a very subtle way.

I will probably pop in again if I find out about more things.

RICE, do you have the original release of the Siedlaczek library? I have had some Kontakt conversion of it for the longest time, but I never could find a CDDA rip of it. If you have it, would you mind sharing? Happy to return the favor if there's anything particular you're looking for that I have. I'm on VGMdb and FFShrine (same nick) if you want to send me a PM.

@Nisto
I bought the Kontakt version from here when it was on sale. I have none of the first versions from 1997.

One thing I forgot to mention:
The E-MU pizzicato strings also appear on Best Service's Gigapack, but only the violins and in mono only. For some reason they added a little bit of reverb on them as well.

@Nisto I happen to have Peter Siedlaczek's Classical Choirs (CDDA) and Advanced Orchestra in AKAI if you want those two. I couldn't find the rest in original format but I do have the complete Kontakt version. Send me a PM on Glitchkill if you do want those two.

@RICE What samples did you find on Soul Calibur 2 that were in Peter Siedlaczek's library's? I've wanted to know what that game uses for some time but didn't recognize any.

@punk7890-2
I have digged around the music of Soul Calibur 2 the least amount of time compared to the other games I mentioned but I know for certain that they used some of the orchestral percussion from Peter Siedlaczek's Advanced Orchestra and some choir patches from Classical Choir. In "WINDSHADOW" right at the beginning they used a cymbal roll I recognized from the library. In "ORDINARY PAIN" also right at the beginning, they used a gran casa roll sample, which also comes from the Advanced Orchestra library. In "SLAVE OF DESIRE" they used the "FAH" patch from the Classical Choir library, the choir cluster later on might just as well be from the same library.

It is a lot more difficult to check if they also used the same strings, brass and woodwinds, but I think it is most likely that at least some of them were used. I am assuming that everyone at Namco has access to the same instruments since those are part of the company's property, not the individual composer's. I have yet to spend more time with this game's soundtrack before I can pinpoint more recognizable samples.

Thanks. I noticed those odd sounding trumpets in their that Hitoshi Sakimoto uses a lot. Sadly, they don't appear to be from those libraries.

I apologize for being a fool. It seems I DO have Classical Choir in CDDA. It's just not in my "organized" library folder... Better get things organized I guess. In fact, this is peronmls' rip, hah. Anyway, sorry for wasting your time.

Thanks, been wanting to know the info on where the samples from SC2 came from lol I thought most of them where from edidrol.
