Earthbound - Battle Against a Weak Oponent

Postby Quirby64 » Thu Jan 07, 2016 4:18 am

Today I learned that I dunno how to do the background sounds happing in this song. I actually used the program SPC2MIDI to get the song notes and what not and tried to do some of those background sounds by ear, but nope. The rest I'm pretty happy with, though. :D
Theme is when you battle a weak opponent in Earthbound because the title totally didn't explain that amirite

Thanks! I tried to look on Wikipedia for what bomonosis is, but I couldn't. Is it a music tracking term?

sorry to burst your bubble but bomonosis is an in-joke around here that stems from an old member (bomono) who would make tracks that sounded pretty bad, and they would always be in C Major.

your track's not purely C Major but overall it's not really enjoyable to listen to, channels that should be in the background are very loud, and some parts just don't really make sense (like the triangle toms). i wouldn't have recognized this as an earthbound song if it wasn't pointed out in the title

this track is quite a difficult one to replicate with the NES sound, especially without the use of samples. keep practicing, maybe try covering more melodic songs without a lot of tricky percussion breaks.

Ah ok, thanks for the feedback. Its slowly making more sense that converted MIDIs from SPC2MIDI don't have the right notes...
That and I might try doing the song again by ear who knows

just use spctool to listen to channels and notes individually. though it's quite unstable, (crashes occasionally) it gets the job done. you can even slow songs down to listen to pitch, like those strange up and down pitches earthbound usually has.
