Junichi Masuda composing for Pokemon Sun / Moon and using NI Massive for it

https://vine.co/v/i6Yzw9x3DOW

probably just testing synths

God bless Masuda for giving us a lead instead of forcing us to do all the hard work!

Anybody with a vine or Twitter account wanna ask him what else he's used/is using?

Wow, this topic has been very slow for ages. I'm very sad about that, we should totally revive it.

I discovered "Tower Zero Repeater" and "Stylus Electro FX", both from Stylus RMX, in Super Mario Maker's SMB3 Airship edit mode theme.

Finally! At least someone mentioned something about the Super Mario Maker terrain theme modes music, thanks benjamin. Now can anyone guess where the instruments for Star Fox Zero and Kirby Planet Robot from their respectable trailers come from?

Not sure about Star Fox Zero, but Kirby Planet Robobot is probably going to use Kontakt like Kirby's Return to Dream Land and Kirby Triple Deluxe. I don't know where the synth sounds from those games come from though, I couldn't find them among either the Roland JV series or Kontakt.

Shit, this thread is about to get off the front page. Can't let that happen now, can we?

I feel like this was asked before but does anyone know where those square wave instruments in some of the DS Pokemon games comes from? I say "those" because the way it sounds in nearly every song its in is different each time.
It plays in:
Battle Factory in HG/SS, at around 0:32
Kanto Gym Leader theme in B2/W2, around 0:14
Colress' Battle theme also B2/W2, plays in the entire song but can be heard most prominently at the end of the song, before the loop
I know there are more examples, but these are just off the top of my head.
Perhaps the most interesting thing about these instruments is that they don't seem to be contained in the sdat files, for whatever reason. And it's literally just these; everything else is there. I thought maybe it could actually be a sound generated by the DS itself though that seems a little silly.

So...anyone?

Can't say for sure since I don't have a nice, isolated sample to work from, but the orchestra hit that starts getting used about halfway into this TG500 factory demo sounds a lot like the one from Gradius III:


Higher quality version of Gradius III Orchestra Hit from a Fairlight user library for comparison.

The TG500 didn't come out until a few years after Gradius III, so the original source might be a Yamaha sampler library (TX16W, maybe?). It was pretty common practice back then to fill your ROMplers with factory samples from your previous samplers, Korg, Roland, and Yamaha all did it. I do have a pretty big selection of TX16W factory disks, but don't think any of them have this particular orchestra hit.

Guess I'll name a few from Twilight Princess, even though they may be somewhere in this thread. Probably a good idea to start a wiki dedicated to instrument origin samples.

"Ordon Village" has Pizzicato Strings and Calliope samples from a Roland SC-88.
The snares you hear are from Peter Siedlaczek's Advanced Orchestra.

I also heard a bunch of East West Symphonic orchestra in Tales of Zestiria.

It's also probably no stranger to anyone that Tenpei Sato uses a lot of Roland SC-88 in his music (Disgaea series).

You'll also find the snare's from Peter Siedlaczek's Advanced Orchestra in Xenosaga and Atelier Rorona as well.

FYI there is a "Search this thread" link under the page list, if you want to look for mentions of Twilight Princess in this thread.

I agree that a wiki would be a great idea. As it is, there are a few threads like this on different forums, with discoveries scattered all throughout them. Thus making it a bit hard to find that info when you want it. A wiki that has just the lists of samples and sources, organized by game, would be a great resource.
