Re: Guitar strums by PK56 at 7:07 PM EST on December 5, 2019
Those are definitely guitar strums. The closest match I could find within my own library of sounds was a soundfont called Studio FG460s II Pro Guitar Pack, but even then I'm not 100% confident it was an exact match. You could start there though. The character of the guitar is pretty realistic given what the rest of Mother 3's samples came from though, so it might be that they actually recorded the chords from a higher end guitar library.
Luigi's Mansion voice sample by Hiccup at 7:04 AM EST on December 15, 2019
Anyone know anything about this sample?:
Its a seemingly unused sample in Luigi's Mansion (2001).

It was also used in this 2010 SoundCloud track:

Spent a couple days trying to find the lead Sax for the Popple and Rookie theme (GBA version), but I think I finally found it.

Roland JV-1080 - Patch 117 - Sax Section (PR-B).

Please correct me if this is incorrect.

Maybe this thread can be for sample CD finds. It felt like the thread got hijacked into a synth hardware topic.

Guitar Strums update by Squeals92 at 9:40 AM EST on February 9, 2020
After I did some digging, I found the guitar strums in Mother 3's drumkit are also used in Kirby Mass attack in nearly double the hz rate.

Samples here

This should help identify where they come from a bit better, since they're less compressed.

by G-Boy at 1:41 PM EST on February 10, 2020
Master_E said earlier in this thread that Shogo Sakai has recorded his own guitar and ukulele in his more recent works, so it's possible that those samples actually are from a live guitar.
by Squeals92 at 2:04 PM EST on February 10, 2020
Ah, so these are possibly the highest quality versions around ATM, since the newer games he works on have streamed audio.

Has anyone ripped the soundfonts from Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo and Pocket Fighter (Super Gem Fighter: Mini Mix) on PS1? They both sound good. (I'm wanting to use them for something...)

Rhythm Heaven/Tengoku and it's DS, Wii and 3DS sequels (including the GBA release) do have some nice soundfonts too. You can get the DS version's samples using Tinke.

Also, Technictix and Technic Beat on Playstation 2 both have great soundfonts! I'm not sure if they're both been ripped though... For Playstation 1 and 2 games, you can get the instument samples in PSound.

Now... i'll be waiting for someone to make the Technictix/Technic Beat (PS2) and Rhythm Heaven (DS) soundfonts using the instuments extracted from the games.

Hi guys, I recently got interrested in that "sample's sources" business and I wanted to contribute to the spreadsheet. SO here's what I found:

The E-MU Proteus/1 was widely used as sample source on SNES, I always wondered, BTW, if some of the samples weren't simply part of the SNES' SDK for how widely used it was on so much games.

But that's not the subject. What I found is that its drumkit was used on some games that haven't been documented on the spreadsheet. Here's the songs I found:

Neo Exdeath's theme from FF5 use one of the Snare

Light and Dark from Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War used that same snare, along with some tom samples I think these are the same as in F-Zero.

The F-Zero "punchy" snare also appears here in this same game and I guess the rest of the drumkit also comes from the proteus 1. Could some expert verify this?

Also, could someone check the Fire Emblem SNES trilogy's OST to find the sources of the different samples? I can easly tell from were some drum samples come, but I can't recognize the source of downsampled, cut and compressed melodic samples. I don't know how you do this guys.
by Drell at 6:55 PM EDT on July 17, 2020
Also today, my friend discovered this:


Hotel Mario's intro lead actually comes from the Casio cz-1000.

Castlevania 64 by xroc88 at 1:44 PM EDT on August 12, 2020
So oim on the hunt for some castlevanisa 64 uncompressed samples and i have extracted the samples drom the rom. Im particularlly looking for the metallic or crash sample type sound played in the Watch tower and science towert themes.

Also the intro low string sample and menu music percussion loops.

The metallic type sound

Low String Sample in the Intro theme.

Its pitched up a bit.

Menu and Castle Center percussion.

Again they might be pitched up too high.

Has anyone succeeded in extracting all the whole music from Zelda Wind Waker HD game? because i know most of the themes are sequenced the fact that the data and audio files .bfstm, .brstms may have been moved to one of the folders on the disk which is currently inaccessible to the public and still not sure how the nicknames people like TheUltimateKoopa on used what extraction software to be able to extend the duration of each theme up to 30min I would like to get the HD version of the theme The Great Sea Is Cursed and I know that composers Kenta Nagata, Hajime Wakai, Asuka Hayazaki, Atsuko Asahi, Toru Minegishi and Koji Kondo made a lot of modifications, massive changes and replaced the old samples and then used the new instruments from EastWest products

The composer of Hotel Mario contacted me!! by Ben Adams (BenKirb) at 10:09 PM EDT on March 17, 2021
Hi, guys.
The composer of Hotel Mario is actually Marc St. Regis and not Jack Levy. This is what he told me:

Mac OS 7, Opcode Studio Vision, DAT tapes,

Studio Electronics Obie Rack, Yamaha TG-100, Roland S770 (custom and stock samples), MKS-20, MKS-50, Casio CZ-100, MT-40 (customized).

If I remember more…

And thanks much for the love.

He also goes by the name StudioElectronics on YouTube.

It's still active. The invite code for the server was changed recently, but that post still uses the old one.

Is this new code available anywhere? The spreadsheet also uses the same invalid one. Or has the server become more privatized? That's okay if so

The invites have kept being deleted lately to stop some unwanted users from joining the server, so that's why they keep expiring. But here's the new link again: Link

You should try privately requesting an invite from someone, it sounds like every time a public invite is posted here it gets abused.

I need your expertise ! Do you have an idea for the instruments used in the Credits Part 1 of Mario Kart Wii ?
Maybe we can discuss it on the discord server, but have not joined it yet…
by G-Boy at 8:01 AM EDT on September 21, 2021
The slower credits theme mostly seems to consist of Korg Triton Studio instruments (such as the piano and the string ensemble), along with a timbale from the sample library Spectrasonics Supreme Beats. I think there might be some usage of a Ueberschall CD (either Disco Fever/Disco De Luxe or House Essentials) in there too.

The other credits theme also uses the Triton, along with a Roland SC-88 string ensemble and some instruments from the Best Service Gigapack CD. The flute playing the Moo Moo Meadows theme later in the song is a live recording.
by deathvine_68000 at 8:21 AM EDT on September 27, 2021
What VST libraries is Sakuraba using nowadays or at least in the last few years?

Particularly the orchestral ones, such as the stuff in Tales of Arise, Eiyuden Chronicle or Valkyrie Connect (the more recent BGM) & Higurashi Mei, as well as his drumkits and guitars in Mario Golf Super Rush.

I think his Smash Bros Ultimate remix of Arch-Illager still used a few EastWest Ministry of Rock stuff.

Is he still using EastWest for orchestra or are they from other libraries?
by TheSmol at 10:22 PM EDT on September 28, 2021
@deathvine_68000 Pretty sure most of the drums, guitars and synths on his tracks are live, you can go to his twitter and when Ultimate got revealed there's a lot of pictures of him in the studio recording something

Surely he is still using EWQL for other stuff tho, like on his FF7 remix
