Hey neat, I occasionally visit that website, too! It's got surprisingly many mp3's of video game OSTs.

Beneath the Duchy's Banner (Bravely Default) should be up sometime later this week.
I know this quote is from 2014, but did you ever finish your arrangement of "Beneath the Duchy's Banner"? I was just starting to consider transcribing this piece, but after seeing that you were nearly done your arrangement, I figured I'd rather listen to yours instead.

Request / Re: [MUL] Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove - Main Theme

That sounds identical to the main theme of plain old Shovel Knight (or Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope if you want to get more semantic).

There used to be a link to the .nsf of the full Shovel Knight OST going around on YouTube videos, but the link I found went dead at least some months ago. I have a copy of the .nsf, though, and I recommend transcribing from the .nsf with the help of NSFImport (and YouTube at 50% speed because you may as well) if you want a crack at this. To my knowledge, the .nsf contains a 100% accurate copy of the full music, and it can be transcribed from into sheet music if you're good enough. Make sure your transcription can be played by a human (or two), though.

If you're lazier, though, Jester Musician has an account on this website, and his/her transcription of the Shovel Knight main theme is in

Feel free to transcribe your own version, though: sometimes, the Jester Musician version sounds a bit empty to me, anyway.

I don't play zelda... (everyone goes into shock)
Me neither. The closest my entire family and I ever got was getting Wind Waker, getting stuck in fetch quests, and never reaching the first boss. That was our first Zelda game, and we've never played a Zelda game since.

Mario, on the other hand...

Wow, that sounds really cool! I wonder what it'd sound like performed? At the part where the tempo increases to 172 to the half note, I think that it should be written with sixteenth notes rather than eighth notes, which would make the tempo 172 to the quarter note. This makes is much easier to read and comprehend when learning the piece, because when I first saw the eighth notes, my initial thought was "it's not as fast as it looks", but it's way faster than it looks. You also change the key signature quite often, which is really cool and I like that, but you don't put any actual key changes in the music. That would be helpful to have, to let the player know the key is changing rather than having them look at accidentals the entire time. Overall, the piece sounds awesome and really fun to play!
My use of 2/2 time and therefore eighth notes is a direct homage to the 1st movement of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, which also uses both of them at roughly the same tempo.

My lack of key signature changes is consistent with the sonata-allegros whose scores I've read. Those don't tend to change key signatures, either, even when they change keys at quicksilver speed. Removing the key signature from the development might be warranted, though, especially since it goes into C sharp minor at one point.

Wondering how well I can write a slow introduction? You'll sure get an opportunity with my Sonata-Allegro in G Minor ("Introduction and Frenzy")! Be aware that this is heavily influenced by the 1st movement of Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, complete with using corresponding accompaniment textures and reusing introduction material later in the piece.

One of my favorite classical pieces to listen too.
IMO, that piece works for Rousseau due to its being dazzling and its tendency to be slightly dry. I listened to his rendition of the 2nd movement of that same piano sonata (a normally cute minuet/scherzo), and it was absolutely wooden.

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.)

I want to arrange this in the style of a video game theme (quite likely a boss theme) sometime. Probably with an orchestra and several types of synth.

Dagnabbit, its composer died in 1986, so I'd need to buy the sheet music in order to do that accurately....

There’re 20 melodies. Also, what do you mean?
I mean that, since your quiz is in the form of a sound file only, I need to manually count each melody to find out its label/number. I might miscount and accidentally think the 17th melody is the 16th melody instead, for example.

ShyYoshiGuy, do you have your quiz in any form other than .mp3? Needing to manually count melodies at best isn't that pleasant.

Also, ThatHiddenCharacter, when are you releasing your answers?

Help! / Re: How To Use FTP links?
« on: February 06, 2019, 06:47:53 AM »
I don't think any of us use FTP links. As far as I'm aware, we use Google Drive, Dropbox, maybe Mediafire (though I've had nasty experiences with pop-ups there), links to Musescore's web pages, our own websites on occasion...but not FTP.

Visit our threads in the Piano Arrangements forum to see what we use.
