All noted. (dajwxp, I'll change the status from orange to blue as I put your mus files in the folder in the upcoming days)

Post by: Pianist Da Sootopolis on July 17, 2016, 03:12:19 AM
I'll claim the Pokemon League themes, both Day and Night since they're essentially the same piece, but the night one is in E major instead of F.
Title: Re: The Official Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Project
Post by: Latios212 on July 17, 2016, 03:13:47 AM
You're good to go to arrange the night version. However, the day version we already have on site is good as is (although, a quick check or two by someone or myself would suffice to accuracy-proof it).
Title: Re: The Official Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Project
Post by: Pianist Da Sootopolis on July 17, 2016, 03:14:22 AM
Oh my bad. I didn't see that.
I'll take the night version, then.
EDIT: Question; why are the staff margins so wonky on the template? My margins are as follows:
Staff 1: 1.15"
2: 1.05"
3: 1.22"
4: 1.05"

- Captured a Flag Underground! (moderately tough, ridiculously fun)
- Great Marsh (moderate and also a lot of fun)
- Amity Square (not too tough, really cute)
- Poffins (a hilarious track, not too tough)

SFX:
I'm willing to do all the sound effects into a fanfare sheet. Is this all of them?
Is what all of them? I can provide a list for you later if you need I guess.

Platinum is a separate game, similar to Diamond and Pearl, but with a slightly altered storyline and some new features and music tracks.

Keep in mind 14 - The Pokémon Lab will be an edit replacement. Only minor adjustments are needed.

Oh, and Snowpoint City (Night) is extremely similar to the day version (not even a key change like many of the others), just fyi. Not sure if we need another arrangement for it.

Whoops, I'm sorry. I didn't clarify. I meant if all the sfx that Onionleaf listed in that list she put together was all of the fanfares.

Awesome, cool.

Yup. I noticed that from the OP. Thanks for the reminder.
It's such a cool song that I couldn't pass it up. :P

Oh, I didn't know that. Maybe the arranger of the Day version would like to do it?

I edited these sheets a little bit, but am still unsure about some things (for example, the note spellings in Battle! (Azelf/Mesprit/Uxie))

Battle! (Azelf/Mesprit/Uxie) - [MUS] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/0pl5j2brhxnttjl/Battle%20-%20Lake%20Trio.mus?dl=0)
Eterna Forest - [MUS] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/flj5odhcfzvq30b/Eterna%20Forest.mus?dl=0)
Lake - [MUS] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/kelv9kqwmaxbso9/Pokemon%20DPP%20-%20Lake.mus?dl=0)
Lake (Two Pianos) - [MUS] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/dwhe8kfe6rliho8/Pokemon%20DPP%20-%20Lake%20%28Two%20Pianos%29.mus?dl=0)

Oh, I didn't know that. Maybe the arranger of the Day version would like to do it?
I don't think we need a Night version since the only difference is added auxiliary percussion (forgot what instrument it was exactly). If there absolutely had to be one, then it'd probably be better for someone else to arrange it for variety

I don't think a Night version is necessary unless we're going for 100% OST completion (and we're not quite there yet...)

Anyway, feedback incoming on these. First off, Battle! (Azelf/Mesprit/Uxie) to start:
- Articulations on the intro. Staccatos would probably be good.
- Try out power chords in the left hand to really tap into some of that bass drive from the original, and see if you like it.
- 38-41 - Those dyads sound inverted.
- 62+: The RH should definitely be lower. On a quick pass those minor thirds really sound out of place - I think power chords are the right way to go, putting the RH in bass clef. Also re-check the bass rhythm in these places - sometimes beat 1 is shortened.

There's more I would like to say about this arrangement, but that's all I've got time for right now.

Wondering how you'll treat the polytonality (B major on top of probably C minor/G Phrygian) in Giratina's theme--you'll probably stick to one key signature for both staves throughout (i.e. not B major on top and C minor on the bottom), right?

(The song is predominantly in C minor/Phrygian, so at least key signatures will be fairly sane...)

Hehe, I saw big music words and I got excited.

Didn't realise there was bitonality, but now that I think about it, yes! There absolutely is. Would call it G-sharp minor because of the dominant resolving tendency (D# at the end of the phrase) but hey. And the rest is definitely in C minor - clear cadences too.

I would do bitonal C-flat major/A-flat minor and C minor, hehe. Accidentals don't make the bitonality clear enough.

That being said, you don't have a V-I in G-sharp minor; just a suggested-kinda V-I. So I guess accidentals are fine. Not as nerdy as I'd hope, but welp.

Finished the first of four:

Battle! (Team Galactic Boss) - [MUS] (https://db.tt/zBNTS2ax)

I have some places in the sheet where I have a big note saying "Fix Here!". These are small changes that I'm not making till the very last because any kind of other change to the sheet causes these to revert; thus wasting time. So once it's been accepted is when I'll be dealing with those. The notes are saying to align noteheads that are similar with each other. So, in case you were wondering.

I haven't analysed it yet but from what you said you can likely expect polytonality using a C minor key signature. I won't be using independent key signatures for each hand because that's more complicated than it's worth. Also since I'll be using C minor there's no chance I'll use B major when I could rather use Cb major. So there's that too.

I'm willing to do all the sound effects into a fanfare sheet. Is this all of them?

I went through the whole soundtrack list while I was writing up that post, so I don't think I missed anything. The SFX section includes all tracks that are about 5 seconds long. You can check through the soundtrack list again just in case as it has the length stated next to each track.

Oh, and I wasn't quite sure what number to give to Old Chateau as I didn't notice it in the soundtrack list.  ???

Oh. I kinda just put my own in.

Not really. At some point I want to test those crazy low A's and see if I wouldn't rather use some percussive method but aside from that I think it's good to go. I also should say that I think I've grown fond of that quote there. I'd like to keep it if possible.

Whelp I guess that's me. I'll scan it over tonight.
Sorry, I was a little later than I had said I'd be but here are my suggested edits:

-Measure 6: All notes should be altered in order to spell an F# major chord, rather than a Gb major chord. This will also eliminate the need for the courtesy accidentals in measure 7.
-Measure 12: Maybe courtesy on the high B naturals in the second voice?
-Measure 13: Here's where I would use a Db rather than a C#.
-Measure 20, RH: Either make the Bb an A# or the F# a Gb. If it were up to me, I would do the former.
-Measure 21, RH: Bbs should be A#s to match the spelling of the LH. If you're doing that though, I would strongly suggest some kind of courtesy accidental on the D natural in the same chord there.
-Measure 23, LH: I'm thinking that this A# would be better off as a Bb.
-Measure 24, RH: This Gb should be an F# which would also result in the following note (F natural) needing a natural sign.
-Measure 25, RH: I would rewrite the little triplet there using A#s and Gx. It may seem a little weird but I mean, it sounds a little weird.
-Measure 26-29: All #s should be rewritten as bs. Also because of this maybe a courtesy natural on the high B in the RH at 30.
-Measure 32, RH: B natural on the off beat should have a courtesy accidental on it to distinguish between the high Bb.

I think that's it.

No problemo!

-Measure 6: All notes should be altered in order to spell an F# major chord, rather than a Gb major chord. This will also eliminate the need for the courtesy accidentals in measure 7.
Fixed. I thought Gb would be easier to read, but I didn't factor in the chords xD
My bad.

-Measure 12: Maybe courtesy on the high B naturals in the second voice?
Ooo. I like courtesy accidentals. Fixed.

-Measure 13: Here's where I would use a Db rather than a C#.
Ah, ok. I know some people don't mind C# and Bb in the same chord, but I like the Db better. Fixed.

-Measure 20, RH: Either make the Bb an A# or the F# a Gb. If it were up to me, I would do the former.
Awesome. I think an A# would be better because of the B natural in the left hand.
Fixed.

-Measure 21, RH: Bbs should be A#s to match the spelling of the LH. If you're doing that though, I would strongly suggest some kind of courtesy accidental on the D natural in the same chord there.
I believe you're referring to M. 22? Also, I'm usually really good at matching the right hand accidentals with the left hand (or vise versa). More of a misstep than something I didn't know how to do lol.
Fixed.

-Measure 23, LH: I'm thinking that this A# would be better off as a Bb.
Same. It'd take out the natural on beat 3.0 and there is a Bb in the right hand.
Fixed.

-Measure 24, RH: This Gb should be an F# which would also result in the following note (F natural) needing a natural sign.
Oh, ok. I tried using the least amount of accidentals in this measure as I could, so it wouldn't be cluttered, but your suggestions works!
Fixed.

-Measure 25, RH: I would rewrite the little triplet there using A#s and Gx. It may seem a little weird but I mean, it sounds a little weird.
Ok. Fixed.

-Measure 26-29: All #s should be rewritten as bs. Also because of this maybe a courtesy natural on the high B in the RH at 30.
Ok. I assume because of the C /=/ C# thing?
Fixed.

-Measure 32, RH: B natural on the off beat should have a courtesy accidental on it to distinguish between the high Bb.
Awesome. Fixed.

Done

- Try out power chords in the left hand to really tap into some of that bass drive from the original, and see if you like it.
I tried it out for the octave sections, and it's not bad. I'll keep it for now

- 38-41 - Those dyads sound inverted.
After listening to it again, it still sounds like this to me (m38/9 for reference):
(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fpuu.sh%2FqmyK4%2Fe64acfdb97.jpg&hash=58730057f20d1f1f77465b11735fd2d4)
I chose to omit the upper octave because it's quieter and so that it'd fit more with the following 4 measures

- 62+: The RH should definitely be lower. On a quick pass those minor thirds really sound out of place - I think power chords are the right way to go, putting the RH in bass clef. Also re-check the bass rhythm in these places - sometimes beat 1 is shortened.
I put it up an octave so that it wouldn't interfere with the LH, but I lowered it (and put parenthesis in the LH). About the minor thirds, I decided to leave those in instead of changing them to fifths (if that's what you meant). It's hard to tell what the note lengths are for some parts (particularly the measures with whole notes), but to me it sounds the same as usual

There's more I would like to say about this arrangement, but that's all I've got time for right now.
Thanks for the feedback (and sorry for the delay in working it into my sheet)! Aside from those changes, I tried adding the timpani for m18-21, changed the half note in m25 to a quarter note, raised the last two beats of m21 up an octave, and changed the last two beats (RH) of m83

37 - Floaroma Town (Day) - Latios212
Love this song.
- Might I recommend changing the 8va in M. 5, 7, etc. to a clef change? I usually try to avoid 8va in the left hand.
- Maybe add a courtesy accidental on the Db in M. 35.
- The melody that starts in M. 3 sounds a bit louder, in my opinion, than mp.

Nice job with this piece! I love when there is straight up 4 measure systems.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

31 - Pokémon Gym - Jompa
Very cool piece.
- Do you think you could remove the extra accidentals (M. 2 left hand, for example)?
- There seems to be some rests barely touching some notes throughout. (M. 1 & 6, for example).
- Flip the first layer notes in M. 53 (LH).
- I'm pretty sure the Db in M. 4 and M. 58 is a C#.
Nice sheet!

Maybe tweak the formatting a little bit? It almost seems too cramped.

I've pretty much done as much as I can do with "Oreburgh Gate", not really sure how else I can improve it. I would be very grateful if someone could have a look and check through it, especially that fast middle section (I believe some bars sound a little "off") as well as making sure that I have chosen the correct accidentals.

Onionleaf - Oreburgh Gate

I've pretty much done as much as I can do with "Oreburgh Gate", not really sure how else I can improve it. I would be very grateful if someone could have a look and check through it, especially that fast middle section (I believe some bars sound a little "off") as well as making sure that I have chosen the correct accidentals. Tyvm!!

[MUS] (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/108749630/Arrangements/Oreburgh%20Gate.mus)

This is fantastic <3

Oreburgh Gate was one of those tracks that I instantly loved but knew I couldn't pull off. It wasn't even a laziness thing this time - I genuinely couldn't figure out how to organise the parts in my mind, and i thought for quite a while about it before I decided "meh, I've got cooler soundtracks to do" in the way the fox determined those grapes he couldn't reach were sour. Haha.

The scoring is clean, precise (didn't check the first repeat, but y'know, I trust you and it sounds right), and very effective. Of course the transition from the section at bar 18 on to the one at 34 is...abrupt, but it can't be helped and it can be smoothened out with some good pedalling. Great writing there.

Extra kudos to your choice of tonality. I don't need to go into the details on why it's right, because it's right and the fact that it's right means you know why it's right. ^^ Spent a few minutes or so thinking about this and replaying the track in my mind, so yeah, thanks for however much extra time you spent figuring this out :)

The only thing I'd like to point out is your choice of accidentals, hehe. I'm now almost certain you score by ear, because you score relative to the sounds you've already registered in your head - that is, "this sounds like E-flat major" rather than "this sounds like the D# that played a while back". Doesn't mean anything - it's just a fun observation that hinders people who score in the way we do in terms of accidentals, hehe.


Anyway, accidentals:

You seem a little confused at b. 10 - 17. Let's start with b. 10 - 11 - you use both as D-sharps and E-flats. Erm...it should be all sharps, I'm quite certain. Here's one of those times that it sounds like E-flat something (and you wouldn't be wrong), but it's actually a sneaky Em7 (E-G-B-D#) chord. So all sharps should solve it. The next two bars are a little more confusing, because of that weird E-natural on beat 2, but I'm quite convinced that this one is E-flat major - rather, theoretically, D-sharp major - with a pedal point on the tonic. So your chord is D#-Fx-A#. Once again, all sharps. Oh, and that double sharp.

Hmm, I think that since this is a VGM arrangement and we don't follow too closely to Classical guidelines (some of those are stupid anyway), you should have the liberty to score it in whichever key you feel is more easy to read. But it's important to keep the use of accidentals consistent; for example, in b. 12 bt 3, why use an A-sharp when you've already used B-flat through the rest of the bar? :) Something like that. you can choose what accidentals you want to go with with some degree of freedom I think, but erm, keep it consistent :)

In fact, I looked a little further through the score and saw that you did it right for the last repeat of the first section (b. 41-ish)! That's a good reference point for the other two sections ^^

So um, do watch your accidentals consistency in b. 10 - 17 and the corresponding repeat at b. 26 - 33~

That's the main thing, really :)

Erm, about the last transitionary section though - I'm very curious as to why you chose to alternate octaves and single notes in the last three bars. The effect it creates, of course, is an accent through contrast at each strong beat, but I don't think the actual track really wanted that. I'm with using octaves throughout to more effectively capture the tension killing, but y'know, I think I'd like to hear you out here first~

Otherwise, fantastic arrangement, thank you so much for all the effort you put into this (haha, clearly you worked really hard on this one)! Sounds great, works well, and deserves all the praise it can get <3

Ahaha xD

It's so weird to theory-bash cool little kinda-fanfares like these :)

A quick cross-check tells me that you've got all the notes and harmonies right. Just a bunch of quick theory-fixes:

I think b. 17 - end should be in D major for the sake of theory. The Pokemon series loves some side-stepping modulations (i.e. modulate to a key a tone/semitone away by repeating almost the same melodic phrase), and I think the change of key better shows that~

The "go to measure 2" at b. 24 is...okay, I guess, but kinda weird. Why not use a dal segno? :p

Other than that, nothing much to say, great stuff :)

Well, I was going to do this, but I decided not to for two reasons.
1. It's a short song. I personally see it as a chord progression and therefore don't think it needs a key change.
2. There aren't any accidentals (except for the C# in the last measure). I know this isn't a very good reason, especially from a theory standpoint, but still one nevertheless.

The "go to measure 2" at b. 24 is...okay, I guess, but kinda weird. Why not use a dal segno? :p
I guess that could work. I do have a few "Go to Measure 2" markings in my sheets. Don't see anything generally wrong with them, but "Dal Segno" also works.

Thanks for the feedback!

This is the way I see it. Like you, Seb, I try to avoid key changes for short sections, but one thing that immediately makes me want to use a key change is when a whole section is exactly the same, just transposed. See this sheet (http://www.ninsheetmusic.org/download/pdf/2580), for example.

Unrelated, but missing slur from 20-21 to mirror what you have in other places. And what do you think about flipping layers 1 and 2?

Oh, ok.
I don't mean to sound offensive here haha, but do you mind if we get another Updater opinion? It's not that I don't trust you! It's that I have had at least two sheets in my past that had a short key change and I was later told to change it.

These two:

There are sections in both that you could technically make a key change and I had key changes originally before being told to take them out. If it wasn't for these other two sheets, I'd take your word on it : )
I just want to be 100% sure about this.

Unrelated, but missing slur from 20-21 to mirror what you have in other places.
Whoops. Oversight on my end.

And what do you think about flipping layers 1 and 2?
They both print out black, so I don't see any real need. Is there a specific reason you had in mind?

I think I have agree with the other updaters on this one. It conventional music analysis fashion, this wouldn't be enough to justify a key change. Personally from my end, I wouldn't stop you if you wanted to be contemporary and put the key change in, but I can see solid reasoning for leaving it out.

I couldn't bring myself to simplify it anymore.

I started dancing on my seat to this, haha! ^^ Great job :)

There's no way I'll ever be able to play this, which is kinda sad, but oh well. Dang, I want to play this so bad.

Anyway, I'll be doing a quick read-through and cross-check, but for this cool little arrangement, if you don't mind, I'll be throwing in some musical suggestions:

We have wonky beams at b. 9 and 10 where a second layer once existed. Erm...yeah, it's kinda weird. Maybe you simplified out the second layer and left that there? ^^

Same for the first three beats of bar 11.

Mmmm...I'm a bit against the A-double-flat in b. 24 bt 3, LH. I think you can omit it because, yes, while you'll have to put accidentals on two notes now, this is a chromatic scale and chromatic scales follow different rules. The D-flat major chromatic scale doesn't have an A-double-flat, so yeah ^^. Plus, makes it a little easier to read. Your call though, I'll leave this one open :)

I think the last two bars before repeat could use that tension-building accompaniment we've got in the two bars before them. Even if it doesn't exist in the actual, I'm quite certain you could add it in just for the effect. I think here's a pretty good place to score the drum rhythm, if you know what i mean~

-

So much nitpicking here. Hope it doesn't cloud the fact that this is a wonderful arrangement, it's delightful to listen to, and I think it's awesome ;)



Zeila - Decisive Batlle

Decisive Battle! (Pokémon League) (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/kgxm4ggrj1uxgyl/AACa9-PW3tGRg_ALVCJsZO7oa?dl=0) is finished

Another arrangement that I bobbed my head to, haha. Ahh, memories...

Crisp, accurate, effective arrangement. Love it when you pull those off. It's simple and good <3

Right, nitpicking + musical thingies:

Mmm...I'm in favour of bringing the left hand down an octave. But then I saw b. 8 and thought "hmm this is cool". If b. 8 did not exist I would have definitely suggested bringing the whole part an octave down for two reasons - it's what it is in the original, and it better re-creates the drum part, which conveniently doubles that ostinato. I'd like to believe that you thought about this already while in your arranging process, so I won't beat on the point, but just putting that out there ^^

The E major chord at b. 6 - 7 and the one a little further down...should be in F-flat major xD. By following conventions, and to better match up with your ostinato. Erm, yeah. So you have perfect pitch. Anyway, the reason why this needs to be is because you have a C-flat in the bass line, and it's not consistent. And from what I've heard and learnt, erm, if you don't play by ear it's easier to see things done the way they usually are done. Yeah :p

Same thing applies for b. 10, 15, 19!

b. 21 bt 3 though...hng. It's definitely a E-natural because it's an auxilliary note, but should you change the left hand part to avoid a false relation? My hunch tells me that you've done it right - the left hand is an ostinato and the right hand is following the rules - and that's good, but hmm, it seems to go against what I've said about your E major chords. Long chords don't follow the same rules as auxilliary notes, but eh. Maybe someone else's opinion on this would be good ^^

The last point I'll be making is on weird hand-crosses; b. 17 - 18 is a really awkward one, and b. 35 - 36 is clashy and muddy, as well as awkward. Hmm. Bringing the left hand down an octave (once again, as with the original) would solve the problem but then it brings back the whole debate on stuff. Your call again, but I think you may want to take a look at these crosses :p

-

Otherwise, much cheers to a great arrangement! May try this out one day, hehe. Good stuff~

Hey, if you wanna help me make this more playable that'd be really great! I really love this track and I want it to be something a large audience can play, I was just flat out of ideas for simplifying without removing things that seem required for the "feel" of the song.

I'm too lazy atm to make any changes now, but I'll certaintly be combing through it with your suggestions this weekend. As for if you decide to cross reference it with the original... uh lel. This is probably the most inaccurate arrangement I've ever done because I've had to do a lot of wonky rewriting just to get it to the psuedo-playable level I have it at now.

Onionleaf - Oreburgh Gate

....

Wow, thank you so much for the positive feedback, I wasn't expecting such a great response. :) Sorry it has taken me a while to reply, it's been a pretty busy couple of months. I took the time to check through those accidentals again, and wanted to say thanks for the helpful explanations. It's also a relief to hear that the chosen key was the correct one - I basically used the simple rule of checking the very first note in the melody (F#), so F# minor it was to be. ^^

I've fixed up any accidentals that seemed out of place as well as added octaves in that last section: Link to updated MUS file (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/108749630/Arrangements/Oreburgh%20Gate.mus)

By the way, the list of unclaimed tracks (http://forum.ninsheetmusic.org/index.php?topic=8641.msg348230#msg348230) has been updated in case anyone is still interested in claiming some (more) sheets. :)

...This is one of those pieces where I don't want to check for 100% melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic accuracy (this piece is a purposeful mess and definitely appropriate for the ruler of the Distortion World).

With that being said, humans will probably play back the repeated Bars 75-77 as intended but the MIDI playback will not, and I've always thought that those bars are in C minor and not null-key-signature (I also believe that Bars 71-74 are in C minor overall, but the notation there looks bad in C minor for Bars 72 and 74). If you want the MIDI to match the sheet music, I recommend expanding Bars 75-77 so it takes up 6 bars instead of using repeat signs.

Isn't the sheet great? ;D
Quote from: Maelstrom
I can only imagine the screams of piano teachers when 1 13 year old kid brings in the sheet and says "I want to play this"

Just popping in to say that changing the sheet for MIDI playback is silly. At NSM our endgame is sheet music that is meant to stand alone as a piece being performed, not .midi files. Plus with enough fiddling with repeats and invisible jumps in Finale software you can make anything play back the way you want to. (Check out Pokémon Black/White Route 2.)

I think an argument could be made for either open key or C minor but we did decide to go with C minor. Thank ye.

To put it most bluntly, this is not going to happen. If I'm understanding you correctly, this reasoning would go to suggest that we should never use repeat signs within a piece because it will mess up the MIDI. I think that Finale correctly exports repeats into MIDI files anyways, but even if that wasn't the case, sheet quality/efficiency/accuracy/clarity should never never ever be sacrificed for playback or MIDI. It's like a golden rule, lol.

It's like a golden rule, lol.
I believe this is where I'll need to agree to disagree. Coming from a classical music background, repeat signs are missed the second time around (and even the first time around) all the time. Therefore, I strongly lean towards writing out repeats if I believe they are mandatory, especially the second time around. (In my compositions, if I really don't want to write out repeats or convention says I need a repeat sign, I explicitly say that all repeats are mandatory.) I tend to write music so it is as unambiguous as possible, but wherever there is explicitly room for ambiguity, I make sure to leave those options open (such as allowed imprecision in articulation and freedom to put in your own dynamics).

I hope full Finale exports repeats into MIDI files as intended, because Finale Notepad playback definitely didn't after the Dal Segno. (Considering that Notepad playback got the ritardando right, there likely is a way to make it possible in full Finale in a way that Notepad understands and without needing to make it visible.)

Didn't realise this project was going! I did the surfing one a while ago if you need it... The link is to my duet version but I've also got a simplified solo version in the back if necessary. I didn't jazz it up at all (unlike me) and I believe it stays very true to the original so enjoy! (PS. I am aware of the dodgy note in bar 43 and it has been sorted, I just haven't bothered to re-upload the video).

10 - Victory! (Wild Pokémon) - Th3Gavst3r
Nice work with this song, buddy!
Few things:
- Don't forget to include the correct copyright information:
- Game/copyright info (D/P):
Pokémon Diamond Version & Pokémon Pearl Version
~
Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, GameFreak © 2006
http://www.NinSheetMusic.org/
- Game/copyright info (Pt):
Pokémon Platinum Version
~
Nintendo, The Pokémon Company, GameFreak © 2008
http://www.NinSheetMusic.org/

- Right-align the composer and arranger name.
- For the left hand, you seem to have added the upper voice (moved an octave down) and added it down with the bass. I'm not against this. I think it works better than adding that third voice; however, a few of the notes you have are wrong.
To get this point across, here is the straight transcription(left hand).

Obviously, this won't work in a sheet since it's not possible for a human being to play, so we'll move some of the notes down an octave:

This is what you did in your sheet, which I'm proud of! There are just a couple wrong notes in both voices. Once again, this pic has the correct notes and playable by humans, and the second pic is the straight transcription.

Also, I think that second layer you have in is fine. I just removed it in the pic to clearly show the two voices. And the eighth rests in the pic are incorrectly placed. My bad. xD
- Maybe you could add a forte at M. 2. Just a recommendation since it sounds so happy and brisk from that point on.

That's all I can see! Excellent work, Gav!

I've done an 'as-heard' duet of the team galactic commander theme, which might be useful for JDMEK5 to peek at for his presumably solo version. As-heard meaning pretty much impossible. Just thought it might save you a bit of time if you're going to do it anyway.

Seb 2.0 has arrived.

Thought I'd spice this project back to life, so here is some feedback.

4 - Twinleaf Town (Day) - Latios212
Yo. Great job with this arrangement! I love how you incorporated the voices and how this piece is arranged as a whole. Great work.

A couple suggestions. Nothing major.
- A couple minor note mistakes in M. 1 and 2 (LH). The G should be an E (M. 1) and the G# should be a G (M. 2).
- I believe a courtesy accidental on the left hand C in M. 4 (LH) would be helpful.
- M. 8. What would you think of adding a courtesy accidental on that F on beat 2 (right hand)? I believe it would be helpful since it would clearly show the performer that the d5 changed to a P5.
- I'm hearing this for the bass of M. 17-20.
What do you think?

But, yeah. That's all I see! Nice work once again. I'm definitely adding this bad boy to my 3-ring binder haha.

7 - Lake - Zeila
Great job hearing all those notes! This one sounds pretty challenging, but you pulled it off well.

Couple things:
- The chord is slightly off in M. 7...here is what I'm hearing.

- M. 10-17. Go ahead and double check the melody for grace notes. I noticed that there were a couple of those missing.
- You also have the option of getting rid of the repeat signs and just writing that section out. The grace notes are in different places and are absent/there in certain spots.

10 - Victory! (Wild Pokémon) - Th3Gavst3r
Nice work, bro!

- Don't forget to put a dynamic marking.
- Just a comment, not something is incorrect. The left hand throughout has a bunch of extra notes, but that really isn't an issue. Just thought I'd point that out. The only concern that I would have with that is that it could be difficult to play all those notes at the speed this song is required.
- This is just my opinion, but when I see 8va markings in the middle of the staff, to me it looks a little shoddy. Maybe you could consider using a clef change instead.




Title: Re: The Official Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Project
Post by: Th3Gavst3r on June 22, 2017, 01:38:19 AM
I'm glad you noticed the changes Seb, forgot to write an update post heh...

Unfortunately with that 8va, everything is pretty far off the bottom of a treble staff so you'd still need an 8vb if you swapped clefs. Between the two, the bass clef with 8va definitely looks better.

As for the difficulty, I do think this piece would be easier to play than it looks at first, mostly because the LH could spend the bulk of the song in an octave span. I did simplify a few large jumps though, it would've been hard to play a couple of those eighth notes :)

Thanks for the feedback! I've been meaning to rework Lake for a while now as per daj's suggestion and I've made those changes along with others in my two piano version. I'll revisit the solo piano version another day

[Folder] (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/hdcb1dneckzn7lo/AACw2yF_uPQCBvar-j_yXHKca?dl=0)

In the mean time, I looked at your sheets Andy

"Victory! Trainer" - [mus] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/kuwsyonwth2gzd0/Victory%21%20Trainer.mus?dl=0)
- I didn't know how to fix the staves being bolder/larger so I made a new file with the correct formatting and copyright/game info
- m1 I separated the beam over the clef change, but it might be better to just get rid of the Eb and make the Bb an eighth note
- m4 I changed the Bb (beat 1 RH) to a G

I briefly looked at Route 203 (Day), and I think you shouldn't tie some of those notes as they collide with the melody and wouldn't be able to be sustained without a pedal anyways. Some chords in the second layer should be inverted too (like m39 for example). Also the first measure should be a pickup measure

Nice job overall!
Title: Re: The Official Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Project
Post by: AmpharosAndy on July 07, 2017, 09:59:57 AM
For Victory! Trainer could somebody
- m1 make the Bb an eighth note
please because it's too fiddly on my naff Notepad. Because then it's finished!

I've updated the link to Route 203 (Day) down below to an improved version. Unfortunately, by doing so I've re-added the pno.1 restatement in every line. The intro is supposed to be a pickup line but it doesn't import it properly and there's a big space at the start :S Also, could somebody help to add bar numbers back in + bar 34 could the first F in the RH be an F flat as well!

That's nice! We always need people to arrange this kind of projects, as you can see, a lot of tracks already are claimed.

Ok so here are the links, I'm not sure its gonna work since Ive never done this before but hopefully it will - the top one is a midi file, the second a pdf. I can't find how to convert it into a mus file but apparently you can upload an xml file to Finale (thats what I'm guessing you're using?), so the third is an xml file, and the fourth is a compressed version (not sure what that means but just in case it helps)

Hope it works!

Sorry, but the site functions primarily using Finale. You can export an xml file from Sibelius and import it into finale, but it will still need a good amount of editing before it's good again, as the transfer isn't perfect. The PDF and midi files will also have to come from the mus file for consistency purposes.

You can do it like this:

-Download Finale NotePad 2012 (which is free)
-Download the template here: [MUS] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/upquitt9v6dwo0f/DPPt%20Template.mus?dl=1)
-Open it with finale NotePad
-Export it with musicxml>export
-Open the xml with Sibelius
-Copy-paste all your notes in it and fill title/arranger
-Export it in xml
-Open the musicxml with finale notepad
-Fix all weird things like collisions wich can happen in the converting
-Save as title.mus
-Save as title.mid
-Export it in PDF using a pdf creator of your choice
-Post the files here

Thanks a lot for helping out, Trasdegi! I'm really sorry though, but finale can't download on my computer, so I'm not sure how to go about doing this... Couldn't you take a look at the pdf and xml to see if its ok or not? I've seen people move files from Sibelius to Finale like this and the result has actually been fine. I'm really sorry about this problem, I might just stick to playing arrangements rather than making them :P

Hmm, I'm clearly not the best at rewiewing sheets, but let's see...

There are some formatting mistakes (the Pno. at each line, the url on the same line as the copyright info and title/game/composed by/arranger aren't correctly formatted) and some unplayable parts (measure 3-4-7-8-9 beat 1), but that could be fixed. Otherwise it sounds great!

When I imported the xml file, it turned out to be a big mess. What you can do in the future is copy it over to a template file with the correct formatting and various tempo markings. Also, you shortened the game title when it should be "Pokémon Diamond Version & Pokémon Pearl Version." There's a template file specifically for this project, but there are other ones that may include more stuff that notepad lacks (such as specific tempo markings or articulation). The help board is filled with topics for templates or formatting help

Anyways, I decided to edit it for you so here you go [Mus] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/9gkv7hkf8qvuqya/Mystery%20Gift.mus?dl=0) | [Xml] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/nk3ibaofqs98zrx/Mystery%20Gift.xml?dl=0)

Other changes i made:
- The tempo should be q = 154
- The only mistake in the LH aside from the upper harmonies in the first measure is the very last note (it should be a D)
- m1 beat 2.5 the D should be an E (RH). I also added and removed some harmonies
- Some of these intervals are impossible to play, so try to keep that in mind. It also kind of looks/sounds cluttered so it might be better to just omit the repeating notes at the bottom. I left them there though and moved the countermelody to the LH
- m3 beat 2 the lower note should be a B
- m5 added some harmonies, got rid of the E on the last note, and changed the Ab to a G
- m7 changed the F# on beat 1.5 to a G
- In general you put some notes that weren't there, and a few notes were off

I didn't write down everything so you should check over it to see what's different and change it if you have any issues. Overall, nice job! :3

Btw, is there a reason why you can't get finale on your computer?

I can't get finale notepad because it can't be downloaded on a Mac, I found out recently :( so I'm not sure how I should go about doing this. I have a few different solutions though that I will be trying out.

As for the song, is it in a format where it can be checked by latios?

Battle Castle by Sebastian
Sounds great, and seems well arranged. I have some things to point out about the visuals though, as well as a few other misc. things.
- The very start of the song! I would suggest a high F# for that chime to kick off the song.
- Middle voice - in some places like m. 18 you've omitted the note on beat 3. However, it'd be easily playable by the right hand and you do have beat 3 present in other measures, so I'd throw it in for consistency. Check to see if it's viable in other similar places too.
- Not sure how easy those rolled chords in m. 38-39 would be to play. Maybe try slimming them down a bit?

Some comments on the cross-staving in general - it could use a bit of work here and there. A few things I noticed are:
- Beam angling. Sometimes you have the voice ascending but the beam angles downward, and that's no good.
- Staccatos - sometimes they look oddly placed, like in m. 35. Sometimes above, sometimes below.
- Stem direction - m. 50 into 51 looks awkward.
- Cut-off points for what goes in the top/bottom staff - I'd take another pass here to determine what looks the best as well as makes sense from a playability standpoint - at least, try to keep it consistent; in m. 29 F# goes in the top staff, while in m. 30 it's in the bottom.
- Space between staves - pretty self-explanatory, but make sure everything has a good amount of room. Things on the last page start to get really squished vertically.

But yeah again, this one sounds great! Job well done on one of my favorite Platinum tracks.

TV Station by Trasdegi
Looks like things were transcribed more or less correctly, which is good. But the left hand of this sheet is a mishmash of different parts from the original, which doesn't work in its favor as a piano arrangement. There's a few reasons for this:
- You end up with some weird-sounding intervals as a result of bringing the bass and middle voices closer together.
- The bass doesn't move up and down smoothly as a result of transposing up/down an octave to make it fit with the other parts.
- The independent voices are awkward to play with one hand - there's a lot of places that are difficult to play at speed because of the way things move around. You need to consider this when writing.

I can elaborate more on any of the above points, but hopefully you see what I mean when I say that it simply doesn't work that well. Let me know if you need help redesigning the left hand part - I can give it a test run for you.

Lucas by braixen1264
I think we touched base on this a long time ago, but I'll just refresh our memory and say that this needs a ton of work. The transcription is there; now go back and find a way to make this into something someone would want to play on piano. Your skills have improved tremendously since this was first put out, so I have confidence that you'll be able to shape this one up.

If you want my quick opinion, try keeping the bassline, the melody, and any harmonies attached to the melody. I'm just speculating, but it seems there's plenty of interesting rhythmic figures going on between the bass and melody - enough to prevent it from sounding dull.

Pokémon Center (Night) by Yug Guy
I have somewhat similar things to say as I did above with braix's sheet, but more so geared towards the look of the sheet. There's a lot of overlapping stuff, and layers that create a lot of clutter in what should be a clean little sheet. There are also a couple places I can see you're trying to shove in some things that don't fit too well pianistically.

I could go on for a while about things that are wrong here, but I'm sure you'd probably address most of the problems I'd raise if I simply ask for you to go back and clean it up - you've improved a lot since this sheet was first put out. Do reach out with any questions.

Jubilife City (Night) (Two Pianos) by braixen1264
Seems very well transcribed, and the layout of parts over four hands on two pianos seems good. (I'll double check all that later).

However, I was discussing this with Olimar earlier and we both agree that it would probably be better to write this in 4/4 swing, lending itself to the jazz style of the song better. Besides that reason, although there are some out-of-place rhythms (particularly the eighth-quarter) in the song that fit in 12/8, I think it would actually be easier to interpret in swing 4/4 because they would visually stand out against the normal swing rhythms. Right now some places are a somewhat difficult-to-comprehend mishmash of different rhythms:

(https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/365911881237659648/426215977043099678/unknown.png)

As well, key signatures... just two, one for each section, should do fine. That little transitional bit at the end doesn't really warrant a different key.

I actually disagree. The reason I omitted those notes is that there is a left hand/bass note played on that beat. I don't want the right hand playing those notes. It would be inconsistent to add them in since I purposefully arranged it this way.

Sorry. I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

Those are the defaults. I'm not sure exactly how to change them since they go back to that spot when I delete and replace them or move them.

- Stem direction - m. 50 into 51 looks awkward.
They are flipped up that way because there is another voice. I can flip them the other way. Fixed.

@Braix: Regarding the key signature choice of Jubilife City: Leaving it keyless is a very solid option as well. Big band composers often do that for things like this. I was just telling Latios that I left my big band arrangement of this tune in open key and it looked and worked just fine. Of course, having a form that changes keys is more of a problem when you’re writing out more than one time through the form, so it’s up to you.

Eterna Forest (Solo) by Zeila
This is one of my favorite songs from the soundtrack! Overall, solid work. It sounds and plays nicer than it looks - more on that later. I spent an hour or so playing around with it on my piano and cross-checking things. Here are my thoughts:

Arrangement:
- I get that measures 5-6 are like that in the original, but it's both awkward to play and dissonant the way you have it written. Consider using the left hand to play the lower parts of those chords, and axing the notes above the melody - as of right now, the high repeating B detracts focus from the moving line.
- Measure 11 and similar places - both the chord and the bass note should be lower. Check the duration of the chord as well, since it shouldn't bleed over right up until where the bass note starts. It's subtle, but the way the figure is written now implies pedal to sustain the chord while the left hand jumps down to reach the bass note - and that's not the kind of sound the original produces.
- Measure 16-18 seem pretty off to me. The melody should jump down in m. 16-17 with the chords above, and the chords should be the focus of m. 18.
- There's some melody lost in m. 24-25. The top line should start drifting away - while you have the diminuendo present, it's more important to ease in the other parts rather than repeat the high notes.
- Accompaniment in the section beginning with measure 27. It's too light (too high up); the song has been building up to this section which finally lets loose with all the energy that's been building up. Try moving the left hand part lower and experiment with what creates a more balanced sound.
- Is there a reason for the staccato mark in m. 33? It doesn't sound like that note particularly needs it.
- The left hand accompaniment part in m. 33-36 is a little tough to play, and makes this bit sound a bit too structured. My recommendation - cut the last eighth notes in each group; that way the figure sounds more "open-ended" like it does in the original.
- Measures 37-38 also lack punch because the left hand is trapped too high. Again, see if you can come up with an accompaniment pattern that utilizes lower notes, perhaps for the first beat of those two measures.
- I feel like m. 39-40 should focus on the quick flute ascents, as opposed to the descending eighth note line in the right hand you currently have written it. See if you can work it a bit to prioritize that.

Visuals:
- Too cramped overall. The rhythms are really tricky in this song and you're not making it any easier to read by compressing everything together horizontally. Give everything some breathing space and fill a full three pages. Other things like the 8va lines and dynamics demand more room as well.
- Watch your ties when you have dense chords like these. Finale won't automatically prevent collisions when they contain intervals of a second.
- The line between m. 8-9 - I would suggest it move from the left hand to the right hand part as opposed to the way you have it now, as keeping focus on the melody over the accompaniment is important here.
- Fix the layer work in m. 43-44 and 47-48. The first eighth rest is misplaced in m. 44 is misplaced, and the ties facing up/down get a bit confusing here. Actually, one thing to consider is it you want to write the repeating G's on the top staff, either to play with the right hand or to reduce collisions on the bottom staff.
- Slash at the end of the URL.

Once again, good work, and I hope this helps give you an idea of how we can improve the arrangement. Feel free to ask for assistance with anything.

Post by: Latios212 on May 04, 2018, 12:59:30 AM
Neat, looking much better! Some further things, though:
- Some kind of articulation on the first note would be neat :P
- Page numbers are too high and page 2 in particular needs more room at the top near the header. Copyright is too low as well.
- This is kind of nitpicky but a lot of your ascending cross-staff eighth notes on the first page still angle downwards slightly.
- Courtesy accidentals: not a big fan here (I would personally just omit them), but if you will use them be consistent about parenthesizing them or not (m. 10 vs. m. 34)
- I think the line in m. 51-52 is confusing. It's already implied in this section that the right hand is playing everything on the top staff, and I think it would make more sense to have a line indicating that the F# is a continuation of the lower voice instead.
- The half rest in m. 50 isn't really necessary since you're beaming the top layer down.
- Fix the beat 4 chords in m. 55. (To avoid manually moving the stems/noteheads which can get ugly, I'd recommend flipping the group by pressing L on the first chord, dragging the beam to where you want it, and using the reverse stem tool to flip the first two chords correctly.)
- Tie/slur between m. 56-57 looks really weird.
- Why is there a tie and a slur between m. 60-61?
- More space between LH/RH staves in the system starting with m. 57.
- You can just keep all the chords on the top staff from m. 63 to end. (You can move the eighth rest in m. 63 back up to mid-staff height as well.)
- You may want to consider keeping all the chords in the top staff from m. 54-60, for better continuity. The chords overlap a lot when they move between staves, but visually they look very separated. Also, the quarter rest on the bottom staff with the notes on the top (like in m. 54) should be moved up.

Item #3
In several weeks I will purge all claims on unfinished sheets at the end of the month unless you still express the desire to finish them. This project will need to get wrapped up at some point, and we need to get a clearer read on what there is actually left to do. There's been ample time already, but of course I'm also guilty of forgetting about some of my claims, so I don't expect anyone to have everything done; I'm just checking up on the progress. Anyway, here they are, and to reiterate, please post saying if you still intend on finishing any of these, otherwise I'll unmark them as claimed at the end of the month.

Please consider helping to review our remaining sheets! The reason that this is a community project is so that everyone can be involved in both arranging and reviewing sheets - it doesn't really help the community if a few of the updaters just binge-review all the sheets. I encourage you to take a look at what people have arranged, and offer whatever thoughts you may have. Closely inspecting the work of others is crucial to one's growth as an arranger, as well!

Without judging accuracy at all... I can tell this arrangement needs some work. Remember, writing for two pianos isn't just dumping all the voices on four staves and calling it a day. Some things to consider:
Sorry if this comes off as harsh. The arrangement just needs a lot of care in order to become a polished product.

Good work. Looks solid. However, this is a perfect piece to learn about accidentals!

Feedback (mostly accidentals) -
- m. 8 beat 1.5: Either spell as B (B/D#/F#) or Cb (Cb/Eb/Gb) - I'd recommend the former
- m. 8 beat 2.5: Db-->C# (A major chord)
- m. 8 beat 3.5: should be C# not Cn
- m. 9: harmony in RH should call on beat 2 not 1.5
- m. 9 beat 3.5: should be G# not Ab (neighboring accidental to the A)
- m. 11 beat 3: should be Ab not G# (chromatically descending from A to G, as well as not to clash with the G in the left hand)
- m. 12 beat 1: should have a courtesy natural as it directly follows the E flat
- m. 15 beat 4.5: either change this to D# or add a courtesy natural in the next measure
- m. 18 beat 2: should be D# not Eb (neighboring accidental to the E)
- m. 20 beat 4 (LH): should be G# not Ab (neighboring accidental to the A)
- There's a bit more going on in the right hand of that last measure - there's a G on beat 2.5 and B flats above the dyads on 3-3.5.

And there's a bunch of eighth rests that aren't on center staff, or too close to other things. But when you're done fixing the notes and accidentals, I can polish up everything for you because Notepad.

I worked on Eterna Forest 2-3 weeks ago or so and didn't finish updating it with your critique, but since it's nearing the end of the month I'm just posting to say that I'm still interested in finishing my claims and will have more time to work on them after June 14th. Also, I can help with reviewing by then too :3

And don't worry about being "harsh" as those were perfectly reasonable complaints/suggestions. I'll work on modifying the solo version as well

Bit unsure about the state of 'Battle! Team Galactic Commander' because I vaguely remember JDMEK5 having done something on it before...? I did a two pianos version a while ago, which isn't too messy. That could be squished into a solo if need be

I don't remember him having anything for "Battle! (Team Galactic Commander)", just the other two Team Galactic battle themes (grunt and boss), but I could be wrong. It can't hurt to check, I suppose, but I haven't seen him around lately much...

Busted out 3 new ones this morning = the top three. Also bumped forward the others with their latest versions. I'm not 100% sure that these are the real names so do point out if they are wrong. There are a lot of background bits in some of them so I've had to focus on the main voices to keep it playable, I did try though!

Notes (Super Contest!):

I kind of just put all the notes in, but it's a bit messy and I'm not quite sure what to do with it at this point.
Just thought I should post it here and claim the song because I guess I didn't do that yet.
I might keep it as a two piano sheet, maybe not?
Title: Re: The Official Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Project
Post by: Zeila on July 21, 2018, 09:46:10 AM
Sorry for the long wait! I fixed Eterna Forest, but not Canalave City yet

- Accompaniment in the section beginning with measure 27. It's too light (too high up); the song has been building up to this section which finally lets loose with all the energy that's been building up. Try moving the left hand part lower and experiment with what creates a more balanced sound.
I tried

- Is there a reason for the staccato mark in m. 33? It doesn't sound like that note particularly needs it.
I have no idea why I did that. It has been removed

- Measures 37-38 also lack punch because the left hand is trapped too high. Again, see if you can come up with an accompaniment pattern that utilizes lower notes, perhaps for the first beat of those two measures.
- I feel like m. 39-40 should focus on the quick flute ascents, as opposed to the descending eighth note line in the right hand you currently have written it. See if you can work it a bit to prioritize that.
I put something else down but it sounded little weird going into 39 so I got rid of the chords and replaced those with the descending eighth notes (and put the sixteenth notes in the RH)

- Fix the layer work in m. 43-44 and 47-48. The first eighth rest is misplaced in m. 44 is misplaced, and the ties facing up/down get a bit confusing here. Actually, one thing to consider is it you want to write the repeating G's on the top staff, either to play with the right hand or to reduce collisions on the bottom staff.
I decided to only leave the G on the first two beats and I wrote it out in the RH

Thanks for the feedback! I fixed everything else. Here's the folder with my changes: [Folder] (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4hocacc04vownoc/AAAT9ZwNUsBny4bd39teVp7Ja?dl=0)

I'm not the best for critique but I'll give it a whirl

Zeila
Spoiler
Just had a play through eterna forest and it's a brilliant arrangement! Only playing problem is bar 35 when the hands are over one another, but I don't think that should be changed. Looks perf to me :)
[close]

Braix
Spoiler
The main issue is spelling notes that move from a note by a semitone and back afterwards. If the different note is below the others then drop it a tone and put a sharp so that you don't have to put natural signs (same vice versa). This helps the performer with seeing the shape of the music a lot more.

- Examples being bar 33: pno.2 b2 l.h Db change to C# and the bar after: pno.2 b2 l.h Ab change to G#.
- Bar 13 Pno.1 b2.5 r.h: change Eb to D# so it moves together with the harmony below and removes the natural sign.
- These type of spellings should be consistent throughout, when you make a decision on how you want them to be spelled

Other:
- Bar 4 last note in Pno.1 r.h: could be D# so that the line moves D-D#-E instead of D-Eb-E(nat).
- Bar 33 pno.2 left hand pattern could be split in half and shared with the spare left hand of pno.1 because it's a tricky line to play especially at such a speed.
- composer name (when you figure out who it is obvs.)
- Bar 13-23 pno.1 both hands: it is not unplayable but is incredibly impractical given how the hands are constantly switching around. You can spread the parts across into the other piano or rewrite them in a more player friendly way. Switching hands around isn't a huge problem but at this speed in the way you've indicated it is.

These are just a few things on first inspection so there's a bit of work to be done here to fix this up. It's actually a very accurate arrangement note-wise so well done.

Haven't spent very long looking at this but it's very true to the original and groovy to play, however tricky. It's tricky in a good way not a bad way which is the best thing you can hope for innit. Only problems are bars 14 and 16 and you know why ;)

Just from looking at the sheet, it might look a bit better if the last stave on the first page were on the second page instead? It seems a bit squished on the first side and empty on the second.

Bar 4: the last semiquaver notes in the rh could be omitted for leap-prevention purposes (I know it's playable but it also doesn't sound great imo)
thassit for now

[Musx] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/sayzpfjd6rexlp7/Battle%21%20%28Champion%29.musx?dl=1) [Pdf] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/5l3uytscm5a6yax/Battle%21%20%28Champion%29.pdf?dl=1) [Midi] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/xhb7vnre1tuthon/Battle%21%20%28Champion%29.mid?dl=1) [Mus] (https://www.dropbox.com/s/orui1cls3xgx5nd/Battle%21%20%28Champion%29.mus?dl=1)

Edit: At Latios' suggestion I added in a key change at bar 39.

Also I'm going to go through a bunch of the sheets on here and offer some feedback shortly (read: over the next few days) so look out for that.

Great job, Libera! Just played it through and it's very simple without missing out things from the original. Just a few nitpicks

- Could the big intro chord in bar 3 put the left hand G# down the octave instead? It's more effective + a little easier to play. Plus, this addition then makes the chord at bar 7 feel much better as well in comparison. Playing the intro as it is feels underwhelming. 
- bar 15 add that B back in under the e in the right hand just because it feels weak without it compared to the previous bars with all the parallel fourths.
- idk if the repeat could be slightly clearer because of the short repeating section in the middle...? it should go back to near the start right?

Done, done and done; the files have been updated.  Thanks for the feedback and I'm glad you liked it!  I'm getting the feeling you're probably a lot better at piano than I am... :P

Regarding the lateness of my feedback, I was going through your sheets in particular @AmpharosAndy and I think you've mislabeled one of your links (one of your two Victory! (Trainer) links leads to Victory! (Team Galactic)).  Hopefully I'll be able to go through your sheets properly shortly-ish (perhaps a big ish...).

Haha, if you could see me now, buddy.

I am here now, and am going to be working through the sheets on the dropbox, posting feedback here.

Lake: and Lake: Two pianos
I originally just looked at the solo piano version, but unsurprisingly a lot of these comments apply to the duet version as well.  When things apply to both I'll just talk about the solo version but I'll trust you to make the appropriate edits to the other sheet. 
Edit: While you're going through all of these, I'd see if you can have another tinker around with this sheet in general.  At the moment I feel like it needs a little bit more love.



Edit: I also updated the OP and the dropbox with all the newest files.  Let me know if I've missed anything.

Hmm.... I really wouldn't say combining layers everywhere is a good idea. In particular, I think the melody should be separated from any rhythmically independent layers, particularly in measures 2 and 27 (contrary to what Libera said... oops haha)

I have a lot more to say about this sheet about layer management in other places unrelated to the above, but am a bit too busy right now to. I can elaborate or go over with this you in more depth at a later time.

- Would suggest making the first three notes staccatissimo or something to make them even more marked!
- You could move the dynamic in m. 2 down a bit.
- The figure in m. 7 beat 3 is actually a bend up from F. But what you wrote in seems like a fine substitute for that.
- Only wrong notes - m. 9 beat 1.5 should be the dyad chromatically neighboring below, that is to say Eb-Ab, and beat 3.5 should also be a fourth (F instead of Gb).

Nice work!

This looks good to me at the moment.  I've only got a few things to say
  • The left hand from bar 9 onwards is partially incorrect.  I would send pictures but I'd have to send a lot so I'm just going to put the file here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/omy6390m3th5eg3/Evolution_LiberaEdit.musx?dl=1 (https://www.dropbox.com/s/omy6390m3th5eg3/Evolution_LiberaEdit.musx?dl=1)
  • I'm not sure about the loop you have going at the moment.  I have a feeling it might just loop those last 8 bars once it gets there, but you should probably boot up your copy of the game to check.  (this isn't really important I know).
Ah, yes. You're correct about those notes. Your file looks good.

As for your second comment: waaaay back when I arranged this the YT video I was using looped how I have it in the sheet, but I can't find it now. I just listened to a 30-minute version of the song and you are correct. I updated the sheet accordingly.

  • Final note in the left hand sounds like a Db rather than an Eb as you have written it.
Definitely an Eb there, checked really closely plus I'm convinced it makes a nice pattern of M3 m3 M3 m3

  • Throughout the whole piece is the bassline that first appears in bar 3.  Sometimes you notate the pitch bend on the Ab, sometimes you don't.  It might be worth going through and checking to make sure you're being consistent.
Was only needed in a few places, got rid of about half of them

  • Think about the playability of bars 64-67.  There are some fast jumps for the right hand there.  I'd move the last two quavers of the right hand's part before the jump to the left hand.  (Which from a brief mess around on the keyboard seems pretty easy to play.)
  • The Dn in the right hand of bar 38 sounds like a D# to me.
  • I'd write the semiquaver F at the end of bar 13 as a quaver.
All added :D

This looks pretty good so far.  Some comments from me:
  • We should get rid of these alternating 8vas and 15vas.  The best way to do that would be to just put a note at the start to play the right an octave above.  (And then another note of course at bar 34.
  • In bars 51-54 I don't hear the alternating C# D# in the bass.  It just sounds like C#s to me.
  • This is a comment for the whole piece: the spellings look funny in places to me.  For example in bar 14-17 we have Gns that should probably be written as F##s.  I'd have another look at the accidentals (maybe consider doing the piece in flats instead?) but if you're not sure we can probably sort something out.
  • Speaking of bar 14-17, the left hand sounds a little inaccurate to me.  I'm hearing:

    [close]
    (that's how I chose to do the accidentals here since the chord in bar 14 is just a D# major chord.)
  • In bar 19 and 23 the right hand As sound like A#s to me.

Hope that helps and if you have any questions ask.

Hi there, thanks for reviewing my sheet. I agree with the points that you've made and have made these corrections. I recall receiving some helpful suggestions a while back to correct the accidentals, so it may be that I simply missed updating m 14-17. I'm not very experienced with the theory behind accidentals and whether or not F# minor would be an appropriate key to use, so feel free to adjust my sheet if you feel it needs improvement. :)

Great work! I do have some relatively minor comments, though.
  • Things seem a bit pushed towards the top of page 2. I'd recommend lowering everything a bit since you've got ample space at the bottom. Also think about perhaps decreasing space between LH/RH staves here since it's not being used.
  • Could we resolve the melody to a high A flat in measure 35 instead of including the lower E flat in the right hand? That voice really wants to finish ascending from the G natural. Similarly, I think it would be best to include the lead-in to the next section at the end of m. 41 (repeated C flats leading into the D flat).
  • How about just extending the 8va over m. 43-44?

I see only reason with all your suggestions. I have updated the file in the dropbox folder with the edits.

Just a stylistic point here, but what would you think about filling in the chords a bit more in the climax at m. 47 and 49 for a more powerful effect?
I think I left them out because what I had was exactly what was in the original, but I do like your idea way better so it is done.



Just adding this in since I was the last to post here anyways:

Hey all,

This probably won't come as a surprise (or really affect anyone at all), but in two weeks time we'll stop taking submissions for sheets that aren't replacements. In the coming weeks we'll reformat the OP and take stock of what remains to be done between the sheets already submitted and the replacements that we still need.
Title: Re: The Official Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum Project
Post by: Latios212 on January 23, 2019, 03:31:11 AM
I've reformatted the OP after taking a look at the current status of each sheet with Libera. Now it's clearer what needs to be done with each sheet. I've removed some sheets from the project (you can still find then in the Dropbox folder) that were either waiting for a while for the arranger to respond or still otherwise need significant work. Each of those sheets is by a currently inactive arranger who has free submission slots anyway to submit them if they do end up getting fixed up sometime.

Now, taking count of the items in the list, there are 5 currently accepted sheets, 38 sheets waiting to be checked/accepted, 15 unfinished replacements we need, and 6 sheets that we need to follow up with the arranger to confirm the status of. That puts us at about 60 remaining sheets so we will move forward with the plan made last year with the remaining 3 parts of the 4-part update containing about 20 sheets each. We'll put an update up once we reach about 20 sheets accepted.

Let me know if the status of anything is inaccurate. It's time to [really, this time] get started on finishing putting this project to rest!

Awesome! Going through it one last time now, a few more things:
- Any reason why the main part isn't written in F minor (like the vs. Commander sheet)?
- Header info on pages 2-3 is outside the margin (as well as the footer on page 1)
- https in URL
- m. 37: typo? Fbb --> Fb
- I think we should spell m. 52/54/56/58 the same way with either En or Fb in the RH of all of them.
- I'd suggest extending the slur from m. 24 to the note it's tied to in m. 25.
Not really finding anything else, looks great :P

Actually, I'm wondering why you opted for a 6-flat key signature (for E flat minor) instead of A flat minor's 7-flat key signature. I hear this theme as being in A flat minor/G sharp minor, regardless of the bassline's tendency to play F minor-like stuff. If anything, this piece has Phrygian tendencies (so it has a better excuse to have a 4-sharp key signature).

(The only bars that initially stuck out to me wrong, it turns out, are actually probably correct according to the original theme.)

60 - Valor Lakefront (Day) - Th3Gavst3r

-The A in bar 20 (right hand) should be an A#.
-The bracketed left hand notes in 31 onwards aren't present in the orignal, which is, I assume, why you have bracketed them.  But I'm not sure why they're there at all?
-The Eb and Gb in bar 2 make more sense as D# and F# (E9 chord) and also helps to avoid concurrent Ebs and Ens.  This goes for bar 6 as well.
-The chord in bar 12 sounds like an extension of F# to me, so the Bb should be written as an A# and I think the Dn is actually a C#.  There's a similar thing going on at bar 28, so change those spellings accordingly (and also change the Bb -> A# and Fn -> E# in the right hand to match).
-The Fn in bar 11 in the left hand should be an E# as it's going into F#.
-Some of the lower ties in bars 1-8 look a little funny.  Maybe flip them or adjust them a little?
-I think the swing in 'Relaxed Swing' shouldn't be capitalised?
-The B in the left hand of bar 4 sounds like an A# to me.  Seems like it's just a regular F#7 chord rather than any sus stuff going on.
-The chord in bar 16 is A7 rather than Amaj7 although there is a G# in the melody at that point.  So the G# in the chord in the right hand should really be a Gn.
-I think there's also an A# in the left hand chord in bar 20, but if you think that's too many fingers I guess it's alright to leave out.
-My favourite thing: http to https.

Might seem like a lot, but it's really just all about the harmony.  It's a really nicely arranged sheet in general.

Continuing down the list:

46 - Battle! (Team Galactic Commander) - JDMEK5 [Approved by Latios]

Hope you don't mind, I did a bit of rebalancing of the layout - margins etc. to space everything a bit more evenly. I also removed the overlapping D# in m. 50 (so it now looks like 48) and verified and removed the text about the potentially confusing note (unless that was intended for the performer and not the person checking it?). I personally prefer the descending chromatic line at the beginning over the repetitive one you wrote. It's fine though, up to you what you wanna keep.

Looks great otherwise!

115 - Battle! (Azelf/Mesprit/Uxie) - Zeila [Approved by Libera]

Did a bunch of edits on the sheet.  Generally they were geared towards layering and general layout, including bar distribution.  I also removed some octaves/shifted them around in places to avoid lots of collisions with the bass line.  Finally I reworked the right hand of the last section to make it more clearly follow the upper line.  Plus there were some voicing and accidental changes in a few places, but nothing major.  All of the notes looked great!

137 - Battle! (Legendary Pokémon) - Sebastian

-I think the first two bars would be better kept in the same time signature as the rest of the sheet (i.e. 4/4) but with a tempo change when the bass comes in.  It seems weird having these 9/4 bars sitting around to me.  (That would make the tempo at the start roughly 156 if my arithmetic is correct.)
-I would go with Ens rather than Fbs and Ans rather than Bbbs throughout the bass line.  Not only would it be easier to read, but I think the implied chord movement makes more sense this way (C flat 5, Db aug etc.)  (I've just noticed that you do actually sometimes spell the Fb as an En.  They should definitely all be the same and I would strongly recommend the En over the Fb.)
-Regarding courtesy accidentals, there's some inconsistency going on.  Eg.g bar 4 doesn't have a courtesy on the Bb but does in all subsequent times that figure comes in.  Also,  if you want to put a courtesy on the Bb why not also put one on the Gn?
-I don't see the purpose of the leading line in bars 15-16.  It doesn't seem like the same voice playing those two parts and I don't think it helps distinguish where the hands should go either.  I'd just remove it, personally.
-The right hand of bar 19 doesn't seem playable to me.  I'd shift the G up the octave so you can fit it under the hand more easily.
-The layer one rests in bars 19, 23, 27, 31 and 35 could just be at normal height I think.
-The age-old http to https.
-Bring the copyright up to v=0 vertical alignment.

The notes look solid to me, these are all just small presentation things really.

-The third note in the left hand of bar 20 sounds like an An to me rather than a C.

-The harmonies for bar 46 don't sound right to me, and either way I think I'd cut some of those extra right hand notes because it seems pretty awkward to perform those four chords in a row at that speed.
-For the left hand in bar 59 (and similarly in bar 63) I'm hearing:

but I can see why you might have removed that high offbeat Bn to stay away from the RH so I'm happy either way on this one really.
-I'm not hearing the last low C in the left hand of bar 4.  Also  There's a similar high C in bar 3 on beat 3.5 like I was talking about in bar 59 and 63 (same for bar 7 as well.)
-I think I wouldn't swap the hands round on the last beat of bar 14.  I think I'd keep the Bn in the left hand at the original pitch (so below the C and Eb that the RH is playing) and then just have an octave Cn on beat 1 of bar 15 rather than three.  That would probably mean that you wouldn't want to cross staff so it might end up looking like:

-Instead of G# G# at the start of the RH in bar 62 I'm hearing Dn C#.
-You could change the clef to treble at the start of bar 24 rather than the end.  That way it gives the performer a bit more time to react to the clef change.
-I think the placement of dynamics across the sheet could probably be made a little neater: just centre things in between the two staves more and give them a little more room to breath after the barline.
-Wouldn't 'slap leg' be more appropriate than 'pat leg'?  I'm not sure patting one's leg makes much of noise, but maybe that's just me?
-Maybe it could be made more clear where exactly the 8vbs start?  Places like bar 2 are a little ambiguous and the other ones could probably be made clearer as well just by dragging them more to the left.  For bar 2 it might be worth beaming those last two quavers separately? (assuming that is, of course, what you actually intended.)
-The Fns on the second to last section would make more sense as E#s to me, I think.  Certainly it'd look nicer haha.
-A dotted barline half way through bar 3 to indicate the fine more precisely maybe?

Pretty weird piece, but I think on the whole you've done a nice job!  All the above stuff is really quite minor.

140 - Decisive Battle! (Pokémon League) - Zeila

This looks pretty good!  A few things:
-The An in the RH of bar 30 sounds like it should be an Ab like the previous note to me.
-Something funny is going on with the accidentals in the lower layer in bar 15.  I think the Eb was intended as an En, but with the rest of the accidentals in that bar I think the Ebs should be Fbs (rather than Ens) and the D# should be an Eb.
-Nearly all of the bars are currently misaligned, so just go through the arrangement clicking on the bars to sort it out (I still haven't worked out a better way haha.)
-Kind of nitpicky but maybe flip either the last stem in the RH of bar 15 or the first in 16 so that they point the same way.  (Probably best to flip the second one downwards.)
-http -> https!
-Might just be me missing it but I'm not hearing the Gn in the RH of bar 4.



Pt7 - Wi-Fi Plaza: Mini-Games - Sebastian

RH looks good, just a few comments about the bass.  There are some bars where you miss out the bass movement at the end of bar and I feel like those almost cliche movements would be good to include over the generic root chord pattern.  I'm looking at bar 5, bar 8 and bar 17.  Also the bass note you've written in at the end of bar 9 isn't actually there.

Other than that:
-Maybe it'd be better to simplify the rhythm in the left hand of bar 11 so that it looks like the one in bar 13.  At 180bpm I'm not sure it makes much of a difference and might just be easier to read, your choice though.
-http -> https  (Can I get a custom emote for this or something haha.)

- Any reason why the main part isn't written in F minor (like the vs. Commander sheet)?
- Header info on pages 2-3 is outside the margin (as well as the footer on page 1)
- https in URL
- m. 37: typo? Fbb --> Fb
- I think we should spell m. 52/54/56/58 the same way with either En or Fb in the RH of all of them.
- I'd suggest extending the slur from m. 24 to the note it's tied to in m. 25.
Not really finding anything else, looks great :P
Concerning the F minor thing, good point. Didn't give the bass line enough credit I think; I am convinced. Though that then puts it in a weird spot with Dekka's comment below about the opening being in Ab minor. In summary, the piece is modal, so it's a matter of F minor (LH) vs Ab minor (RH). For the intro, I just stuck 6 flats on there with the not-intent of Eb minor but rather a hybrid that will hopefully keep it as simple as possible to read. I feel bad about just throwing all 7 flats on there completely but also going from sharps to flats suddenly; I don't think that's necessary. For the main part of the piece, I do like the consistency argument so I switched that into F minor just to make it clear- the LH wins.

41 - Battle! (Team Galactic) - JDMEK5
Actually, I'm wondering why you opted for a 6-flat key signature (for E flat minor) instead of A flat minor's 7-flat key signature. I hear this theme as being in A flat minor/G sharp minor, regardless of the bassline's tendency to play F minor-like stuff. If anything, this piece has Phrygian tendencies (so it has a better excuse to have a 4-sharp key signature).

(The only bars that initially stuck out to me wrong, it turns out, are actually probably correct according to the original theme.)
Very good points. My rationale for final decision is above, but ultimately I remember that notes are notes and sometimes what it sounds like isn't always totally reflected by the score (as much as we try to make it so as much as possible). The pitches are there and accurate and ultimately that's what counts and there are absolutely different ways to write it out and reason through it from a analysis perspective but I'm going to go with what I described there and that's why. Of course, if there's a better way to do it, by all means let me know.

I'm still hearing Ab-An rather than An-Bb but it is kind of hard to hear.  Also I'm not sure that the En-Fn bend is worth putting in, but I'll leave that to your discretion.

I'm not hearing that at all ;-;

I had another listen and this is definitely what I can hear.  I'm pretty certain I've got the right part since it's playing all of the other notes you've written in.  Maybe someone else can give someone else can give an opinion if we can't agree between us.

The other stuff looks good; I'll fix the articulations later.

I think there's only one An in bar 30, but either way I mean the one on beat 1 in the right hand.  An An there sounds really strange to me and I do still think it should be an Ab, but once again maybe someone else can clear it up if we can't decide.

Yeah you're right it's there, my bad.

Not sure if this change happened on your edit or I just missed it before, but the beams on the first group of quavers in bar 15 are quite high and should probably be brought lower.

For Commander, the file with the edits I made (with margins, measure distribution, other stuff I mentioned) is in the "checked once" subfolder of the main folder. Would you be able to make your new changes on top of that one? (Sorry to ask!)

Brilliant!  We're pretty much there I think, just some final formatting things:

Stark Mountain:

-The page number for page 3 is weirdly positioned.
-I think I'd bring the systems on page 1 a little closer together so that you can bring the start of the music away from the title a bit.
-Due to the slur the 8va on page 3 is very closer to the title so I'd bring those systems down a bit to compensate (you've got tons of white space at the bottom so this shouldn't be a problem.) 
-Finale tends to start the 8vas/8vbs a little too far to the right so I'd adjust all of the starts of them to compensate (move them to the left a bit).

Decisive Battle:

Something I only just thought of, but have you considered writing the right hand of bars 25-34 using bass clef rather than treble?  It get's awfully low at times and the highest it ever goes is Ab which means the most ledger lines you have to use is 3 (and you only do that once) as opposed to having to use 4 twice.



Sorry for the back on forth on these ones, but hopefully we should be done soon!

There's kind of a lot, so I'm going to spoilerize all my feedback:

2nd Check
Battle! (Team Galactic) - JDMEK5
  • My only concern is with the accidentals; I feel like a lot of these would technically be flats or double flats instead of naturals. However, what you have is, at least in my opinion, a lot clearer and easier to read, so I'm fine with keeping it as is. If you're fine with that too, I'll accept.
[close]
Eterna Forest - Zeila
  • One of the ties on beat 4 of m3, 41, and 45 (RH) seems just a bit too close to the chord. Other than that, I got nothing.
[close]
Hearthome City (Day) - FireArrow
Lots of weird chords in this one:
  • m2 LH: The Bns should be Cbs (Db7 chord).
  • m3 LH: Maybe make the middle Cs in the LH Ds instead (it's kind of a stretch for the LH but its definitely doable), or somewhere in the RH. There's definitely a D in this chord though.
  • m4 RH: The Eb should be a D# (G7#5, or augmented 7th chord).
  • m8 RH: The Eb should be a D# (same reason as m4), and the D natural below it sounds more like its played on beat 4 instead of beat 3.5.
  • m10 & m26: The Abs should be G#s (E7#5 chord), but keep the Cs instead of making them B#s since those are a pain.
  • m34 RH: The Ebs should be D#s (another G7#5 chord).
[close]
Battle! (Azelf/Mespirit/Uxie) - Zeila
  • Maybe some courtesy Ebs in m32 and 36? Also, the accidentals in m46-53 seemed weird at first, but I think they work nicely since there is a minimum of accidentals per measure. Everything else checks out.
[close]

1st Check
Battle! (Team Galactic) - JDMEK5
  • m13: The size of those 8th rests in layer 1 is inconsistent with the rest of the section.
  • m20: The 8va marking goes above the top margin. There's enough room on the page to move all the systems down and/or closer together to keep everything within the margins (I'd probably do this for page 3 too so it looks consistent).
  • m49: I think the layer 2 G would be better written as an 8th note instead of a whole note. It sounds short in the original. and holding the G while trying to play the bass clef stuff at the same time is a really big stretch for one hand.
[close]
Oreburgh Gate - Onionleaf
This is an interesting piece...
  • The 6/4 bar at the beginning should be only around 4 beats long.
  • m17 LH: There is a pickup to m18 in the melody line here on beat 3 (E naturals); also, the Dxs in this measure should be E naturals.
  • m26-33: The G naturals should all be Fxs. In m33 LH, the D natural in the melody should be a Cx, and like in m17, there is an E natural quarter note on beat 3.
  • m45, 49 RH: Some of the accidentals in these measures are bit too close to notes and other markings.

Solaceon Town (Day) - Latios212
  • The F naturals in m6 should be E#s (C#7 chord like in m5).
  • m18 RH: The grace note looks like it's too close to the flat sign next to it.
[close]
Route 210 (Day) - dajwxp
  • m6 RH beat 1: That staccato should be on the other side of the note.
  • Anytime there's a rhythm like on beat 1 of m6 RH, the 16th notes should all be beamed together.
  • Many of the slurs could be adjust a bit (like m16 and m19 for example) to reduce their vertical space.
  • m29 RH: Some notes in the chromatic run should be respelled (Fb to En, Cb to Bn).
  • m33: The 8th rest in the LH on beat 1 should be moved down like in m32. Also, is there a reason why the RH is in layer 2? It doesn't affect the arrangement in anyway, but it should probably just be moved to layer 1 since nothing else is happening in that measure.

Battle! (Team Galactic Boss) - JDMEK5
Not sure how much you've tested or fixed the parts that you marked on the sheet, but I'll provide some feedback anyway:
  • Some of the dynamics and accidentals are too close to other notes and markings, like in m29-30 for example.
  • That "hit the lowest note on the piano" section I think sounds better if you play it in key as a low C instead of a low A. Also, for this direction marked (a), and the other marked (b), I would move the directions directly near the music so the reader doesn't have to look down for them since there's enough space to do this.
  • Your system spacing on different pages is inconsistent and uneven.
[close]
Victory Road - Latios212
  • I would probably make all the C#s Dbs, and all the Gbs F#s just so everything is consistent. The entire piece seems built on the G-Db tritone and various chromatic things going to or from G. Just do what makes sense to you, right now it seems pretty inconsistent in terms of accidental spelling.
  • You have the flute part in m5, 6 and 10 marked as staccato, but the string triplets in m11 without articulation. In the original, it sounds like it should be the opposite. The flute notes seem held longer and the triplets are pretty short.
  • m11 LH beat 4: I hear these 2 8th notes as another A natural and Bb, and ending on an A on beat 1 of m12. The upper notes may be there, but I think these are more prominent.

Thanks Static for all the help. Pretty busy tonight but I took a look at a couple:

Eterna Forest - Zeila
  • One of the ties on beat 4 of m3, 41, and 45 (RH) seems just a bit too close to the chord. Other than that, I got nothing.
[close]
I fixed this and reset the status to blue. Feel free to accept.

Solaceon Town (Day) - Latios212
  • The F naturals in m6 should be E#s (C#7 chord like in m5).
  • m18 RH: The grace note looks like it's too close to the flat sign next to it.
[close]
Fixed the second thing. Wasn't too sure about the first, though, since that has an En on top - would you prefer the diminished octave?

Post by: Static on July 30, 2019, 02:37:26 AM
Looks great! I didn't see the E natural, that was my mistake. So in that case, definitely keep the F natural. I'll go ahead and accept both.

134 - Battle Tower - Yug Guy

-I think the margins on this one could do with updating (to big on the left) and maybe the staff size (perhaps too big) as well.  It might be worth putting this into whatever template you use nowadays and it'd probably fix most of the issues.
-The rests in bars 3-4 and 32 could probably be brought down a bit after the first, but it's not really a big deal either way.
-The second layer Db on beat 1.5 in bar 10 and 12 should be an Eb.
-The right hand Eb on beat 1 of bar 26 should be an Ab.
-Missing a left hand in bars 23-24 and 26-27.  Is this an early sheet of yours, perhaps?  There's definitely stuff to put in for the left hand there.
-The diminuendo in bars 29-30 should stop at bar 30 since you can't do that over a held chord on piano.  Similarly for bars 7-8.  Also, I'm not a huge fan of the crescendo in the last bar as it's only affecting notes that aren't crescendo-ing in the original.
-The graces you put in going into beat 2 in bar 29 are actually what sounds like an arpeggio in the original.
-http to https
-The right hand in bar 16 is quite a bit more complicated in the original.  I'm not suggesting writing it in verbatim, but you could probably do more to capture it there.
-The notes that stick out to me on the backbeats in bar 9 (10) are actually the Fs (Gbs) which aren't in your dyads there but they are in bars 11-12.
-The semiquaver rests are the end of bars 13-15 probably aren't necessary.

This'll probably need another look from me after you've made edits because there's likely to be a fair few changes.  Also, you might just find things yourself while revisiting an old sheet like I tend to do.

  • I'm usually not a fan of using staccatos on dotted notes, but I think due to the very dense/layered nature of this piece, using staccatos makes things a lot less cluttered.
  • There are some misplaced staccatos and rests and off-center dynamics
  • Since you have Notepad, I took care of all this for you and am now approving this sheet.

  • The C# in m6 of Primo LH should be a Db (descending chromatic scale).

Wi-Fi Plaza - Sebastian
  • m9 beat 3: The RH and LH notes should be aligned vertically.
  • m14 RH: Slur on the grace note should be flipped.
  • m23 RH: I would make the Db a C# in this instance because it acts as a chromatic approach to the D natural.
  • m25 LH: The slur on beat 3.5 seems a bit too close to the note.
  • m35 LH: The Db should be a C# (F7#5 or F augmented 7th chord).

  • The style description should go before the tempo marking.
  • The page numbers aren't positioned correctly; they should be lined up horizontally.

Sorry for the back on forth on these ones, but hopefully we should be done soon!
No worries! I fixed the stuff you mentioned. I also made a few other changes to Decisive Battle, which were just formatting stuff like changing the subtitle/page number positions or removing/changing courtesy accidentals in m16 and wherever there where parenthesis

I would add courtesy accidentals to the lake trio battle but I don't have the updated file. Anyways, here are the two updated MUS files:

This is an interesting piece...
  • The 6/4 bar at the beginning should be only around 4 beats long. Yep, the note is 4 beats long, with the other 2 beats being in the very last measure of the piece. I hope that's appropriate?
  • m17 LH: There is a pickup to m18 in the melody line here on beat 3 (E naturals); also, the Dxs in this measure should be E naturals.
  • m26-33: The G naturals should all be Fxs. In m33 LH, the D natural in the melody should be a Cx, and like in m17, there is an E natural quarter note on beat 3.
  • m45, 49 RH: Some of the accidentals in these measures are bit too close to notes and other markings.

Hi Static, sorry for the delay, I've made all the changes with just one query added in blue above.

I can have another look at this sheet sometime next week if that will help? It's been a while since I've edited it, so may be worth for me to do an extra self-review.

(this is for Pt9 - Wi-Fi Plaza: Parade)
Fixed the above (although not sure what's wrong with 25 in particular?)

In addition to the above:
- Adjusted spacing
- Cut out some difficult to reach notes in the intro
- Respelled Fb as En in m. 3
- D#>Eb in m. 6
- Last RH note in m. 10 is Eb
- m. 13 melody is all quarters
- Layer 2 melody in 15 should have Db instead of C
- Beat 4 of m. 18 is C (and also following measure should have a C grace note)
- End of m. 23 should have a D. Also adjusted the slurs/ties here

Adjusted everything above, so looks good now!

Hey all,

This project has been around for over 3 years and given the lack of traction it's had in the past couple, it doesn't seem to make much sense to keep this around any longer. Some of the sheets still need significant work but haven't been receiving the attention they need.

We're proposing updating sometime before Christmas with whatever we finish by then. If sheets linger past then, they would still be fine to submit via the normal process. Having this project away and done can help us more easily focus on whatever else we have coming up in the new year.

Any questions, feel free to ask.

Hello,

To begin, congratulations for your works. It's impressive !
I'm new one this website even if I know ninsheetmusic since many years.
I started arrangement since two years.
If I understand, there is "Pokémon Route 205 (Night)" (two hands) which isn't taken.
I can do it. Can you confirm me if this music is always free ?
(I post my works on my channel youtube. I can send you the sheet music here.)

Thanks you.
Best regards,
Christophe.

Updated the rest positions in a bunch of places, accepting this one now.

Zeila - Stark Mountain
This is overall very very good! Just a couple of small things.
- This was composed by Go Ichinose, not Hitomi Sato. (The bass and percussive rhythm are indicative of that :P)
- For the chromatic triplet descent in m. 28-29 I think it'd be good to respell a few of the accidentals as follows:
  - m. 28 Ab (7th note) as G#
  - m. 29 F# as Gb
  - m. 29 Eb as D#
This way you keep the pairwise minor seconds. Actually, given that they're pairwise minor seconds I think these would be better written as sextuplets so you don't group them contrary to that.
- Oh, and I think you should put an "Edited by Zeila" on this one.

Ok. I will try to understand your system.
I have almost finish the sheet music for "Route 205 (night)". I will post very soon.
I have also a theme which is called "Encounter Collector" (it's not the real name) but he isn't perfect and I think you did a sheet music for this.
I don't think I will do a sheet music for 4 hands because it's not easy to hear all instruments.
