Xenoblade by icecream at 11:12 AM EST on January 16, 2016
Are Xenoblade Chronicles's songs recorded live, or do they use VSTs? I know that Yoko Shimomura most of the time uses virtual instruments so I'm thinking the latter, but I want to make sure.

I'm sure some of the tracks are done by a small orchestra ("Agniratha, Imperial Capital" for example is likely live) and the stuff from ACE is obviously all live, but I'd be willing to bet that they didn't have the funds to make the whole soundtrack live. Meaning there must be VSTs somewhere. Try asking Minami Kiyota, Yoko Shimomura, or the two original members of ACE.

I figured. Asking because while this is probably a far cry from the truth, the guitars in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon's "Sand Continent: Sahra Town" sound strikingly similar to the ones used in "Colony 9", and SMD I know for a fact uses VST (speaking of which does anyone know what SMD uses?), so I thought they might be the same. But what are the odds of that being the case?

The chords used as the rhythm in both songs are in the same minor key, but I wouldn't say the instruments are the same.

The Mystery Dungeon guitars have a more "mandolin" sound to them, while the Colony 9 guitars have a steel string sound to them.

As for the VSTs used in Mystery Dungeon, why not ask Keisuke Ito or Yasuhiro Kawagoe?

Did some more study and tweaking of my Gradius III title screen song. The FM part's probably about as good as I can get it now. Just need to get source versions of the rest of the PCM samples.

I apologize if I'm annoying you with questions on where sounds come from, but I'm still interested in where these sounds come from:

I'd also like to know what Kirby Canvas Curse, Mario Kart DS, Mario Kart 7, and Mario Party 8 use too.

I guess I'll be the first to say it.

Could you format those links better Benjamin? There should be a little tooltip to help you hypertext next to the posting box, and all you need to do is add &t=#m#s (#s being the numbers in you want to use) to the end of your YouTube links to make them start playing at the specified time.

I wonder too what they used to make the Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart 8 soundtrack, was it SC-88?
by Benjamin at 8:51 AM EST on January 23, 2016
@Master_E: Sorry, I'll try next time, but unfortunately you can't edit them after they've been around a day.

@dj4uk6cjm: I don't recognize any SC-88 in Mario Kart 7. All I recognize is Logic Pro, but there are other sounds not from it. For Mario Kart 8 I recognize Logic Pro, SC-88, and Roland Fantom and I heard they used Battery.
by dj4uk6cjm at 12:10 AM EST on January 24, 2016
Geez does every mario game for the Wii U use logic pro for music? Wish I had a mac now...there should at least be a way to recreate that jazz sample from MK8 on windows or something, btw on a somewhat related topic does anyone know if nintendo still even uses midis for their games anymore? I feel as though the format is almost non-existent now since the original wii. Sure made it fun to view how they made the notes in our daws :( I don't like streamed music tbh but hmm maybe someone should make a thread on which nintendo games use midis/sequences? Ah well just a thought anyway.
