Thanks for the hint. This is the thread:

However, (!!!!!) only seems to be using samples from the ROM. So pretty much the same approach as mine.


I solely used SubDrag's tool for ripping the soundbank and midis. Problem is that I dont own a Roland JV-1080 and I couldnt find any soundfont that offer samples for it.

Enclave123 owns a Roland JV-1080, perhaps you could ask him?
Demo Trial of Silence by G-Boy at 2:04 PM EST on February 17, 2017
I have a request. Maybe it's too much to ask, but... could somebody who owns the Roland Sound Canvas VA please take this MIDI of Light of Silence from Chrono Trigger and run it through the Roland SC-88 sound map in that VST, and link to it in this thread? That song is one of my favourite VGM of all time, and it would be very, very nice to hear how it sounds on the SC-88.

Hey there, I've been doing this ever since I got the SC-VA.

FF9 Battle 1 (mostly finished):

And here's my Soundcloud if you're interested in some more.

I'm getting the hang of the Sound Canvas more and more that I do this.

Xan1242, good stuff. Be careful about transcribing pitches; the worst part for me about listening to video game arrangements/remixes is wrong notes. For example, "Final Fantasy 4 - Zeromus (Sonic 2 -3 Style)." After the pyramid/build to the B section (Intro, A, B, C, whatever, figure it out), there is a sequence of two arpeggiated chords. The top note of the second arpeggio should be an octave interval; it's too low. Actually, it sounds like chord number one is simply repeated. Ouchy.

The pyramid/build could use a drum hit on the last beat, kind of like the cherry on top (Nobuo's version did).

Personal experience tells me it's easy to get a wrong version of the source in your head while transcribing, which is why I don't try it anymore. Lack of patience.

In other news, the guy on the left was the drummer in my college Jazz Ensemble:

If only he had known I was into video games more than your average nerd. lol, fame by secret association.

I'm not sure if this counts, but I redid the Tales of Phantasia battle theme in Golden Sun style.
