Miscellaneous Arrangements / Shy's G&WG Transcriptions [New: 2 - Chef]
« on: December 28, 2020, 07:46:10 AM »
[Main PA Thread]

Soo... This is new for me, but I'm going to try transcribing the G&WG themes by splitting up the channels in VBA (VisualBoyAdvance). 2, 3 & 4 are easy since they have music rooms. However, 1 does not have one. (Haha.) Luckily, I found a workaround. Entering the Game Genie code [ID]0-58A-F74 will have the corresponding songs play when opening the Mode Select screen and using these ID values:

IDs (For example, 270-58A-F74 is Manhole)
Manhole = 27
Octopus = 32
Oil Panic = 41
Title = 52
Game Select = 56
Congratulations = 5A
Game Corner 4 = 7D
Game Corner 3 = 8B
Game Corner 1 = 90
Game Corner 2 = 94
Credits = 9C, A0, & A4 (the intro, loop, and ending have three separate IDs)

Fire appeared in the 10-14 range, but I wasn't able to find one not interrupted by sound effects. Oh well.

Anyways, I've only done one so far (and it's not even complete). The goal of these is to show all four channels, including the percussion channel. Once I get the percussion channel going, I'd really like feedback on how to make that better since I've never really touched it much before.

(2) Chef - [MSCZ] [YouTube]
(3) Mario Bros.
(1) Oil Panic
(2) Ball

(Note: These tempos are based on the tempos my emulator outputs. I've verified that the real Game Boy tempos and emulator tempos are not identifical. However, I don't care, so take that.)

Red- To-do list
Orange- Work-in-progress
Green- Three main channels completed
Blue- All four channels completed
There are some of these where I know I won't be able to make a good arrangement of it. If anyone is interested in turning a purple transcription into a piano arrangement, you 100% have permission to do so. (I'd like an "& ShyYoshiGuy" on the sheet.) However, I recognize that probably no one will ever take me up on that and that's fine. Just rather leave the option open if anyone ever feels so inclined.

To close this off, I'll explain how I figured out the sound channels. [VBA] gives you the option of listening to individual channels while playing:
These keybinds aren't default.
After that, I used [WASAPI] to relay the game audio in Audacity in order to record it.

Sorry, but nowhere on the Internet seems to explain any of this, so I thought I'd write all this here so it'd exist somewhere

Static handed me the fix under the radar (Discord) and now all three are updated.

Thank you for making the triple repeat, heh. Sorry for all the back and forth, but uh:

- For the one I’m uploading in a second (“12-14 (2)”), I’ve changed m35 RH beat 2.5 from F to F# because I think it sounds better
- m10 & 41, how do I make the sharp apply to the other layer in the RH without rewriting it?
- I’ve changed the composition text to:
Composition by Marshall Parker
& Gavin Parker
but I expect that I won’t have positioned the text box perfectly.

  • Now that the site has those fancy new console labels for each game, the title on your sheet no longer requires "Sega Dreamcast" on it.

If it's okay, I put it back for consistency's sake. The two already up have it and the labels on the site don't necessarily mean that the sheet itself is distinguishable from one of the other seven games with the same title.

I agree with your other changes though.

- In playback, 55-58 still only play twice.

That's the only thing. Excited for this one because it's been in progress for a bit, heh. The .mus is updated now.

By guesser
These are the submissions in chronological order:
A ‘+’ denotes that that guesser submitted another guess later.

Congratulations, mastersuperfan! Impressive that you got all of them except for #13 (and probably would’ve gotten that one too if it came down to it).

I first wrote out all the numbers everyone got, but I decided that was bland and was mostly meaningless. Instead, I made a little chart like this. Anyways, these guessers guessed these melodies:
A ‘0’ denotes missing the melody and a ‘1’ denotes guessing correctly.

Seems like Mario Kart is very well known. All but one of the guessers who got 5+ melodies right got all 5 Mario Kart melodies right. And sorry, Mario Party. You’re the real loser of this melody quiz unfortunately.

All other Melody Quizzers, I recommend you use Google Forms since that made that so much easier for me. Ultimately, you do you. Watching the results come in was fun too. IIrc, this quiz had more guessers than any other quiz I’ve ever done, so cool beans. Too bad, [second place winner], better luck next time.

Quiz 152 answers will be posted tonight at midnight EST.

Here is our fifty-melody-long:
Guess-That-Soundbyte Midterm 154!

[Dropbox folder]

[Google Form]

This one was essentially procedurally generated by hand if that makes any sense at all. My methodology is in the spoiler below, but otherwise all you really need to know is that:
1. Each "series" according to NSM is used exactly once and there are 7 "Other" tracks.
2. The tracks are ordered by a vague conception of sales numbers. (More details in the spoiler.)

For all randomness, I used For each series, one game was chosen from all games with at least sheet on site with equal probability. Then I went to Khinsider (or YouTube if Khinsider didn't have it) and chose a track at random. Finally, I choose a timestamp at random and cropped it. I vetoed if (1) the soundbyte wasn't representative of the track or if (2) the track wasn't representative of the soundtrack. The games are ordered by "sales numbers" even though the results weren't all that reliable. If a game didn't have those published, I took the sales numbers for the series/mini-series and divided it by the number of games. If there weren't even series numbers, I put it at the bottom of the list.

Hopefully this methodology didn't yield a terrible quiz. It's made kind of obvious that making, for example, "Mario & Wario" and "Super Mario Odyssey" equally likely led to some weird results. In creating the quiz after this one, I used the Huntington-Hill method (the method the US government uses to apportion seats in the House of Representatives according to census populations) to apportion the number of melodies according to number of games on site.

Anyways, lol, have fun with this one. Since this one is longer and has more steps, this one should end a month from now on 12/29 at a time TBD.

Cool. I did the first two and left the third since I like it better this way. It's now updated. Thank you for all the feedback, eheh.

Got one more thing to add to the checklist:
Whew, that's a lot, but after that, it should be mostly good to go. There are still other things to handle that you can't do without full Finale (so don't worry about doing this yourself), mainly:
- Note spacing
- System spacing and clashing with margins/each other
- Repeat endings - clashing with notes, ending numbers should have periods after them
- Maybe measure distribution per page and system distribution per page should be expanded so that it uses a 4th page? It's pretty cramped as is.
(+ fix playback in m10/41 with the RH F# on beat 4.5)
- m55-62 doesn't play thrice in playback or MIDI

Unfortunately, there does not exist any YouTube video with only this song in it, so this video will have to suffice: (You'll need to go to timestamp 4:13)

If you'd prefer an .mp3, this is the one that I used to arrange this song.

Some things right off the bat that I can't change:
 - It doesn't have a proper pickup measure
 - The swing marking doesn't seem to be affecting the bass clef
 - I think the intro should have a bass-with-an-8-under-it clef since the notes are kinda low
 - Same deal with Parachute, can each of the six possible tempos have its own loop?

Excited to finally fulfill nintenerd542's request after eleven years.

I’m happy with it, yeah. Go on ahead, thank you.

Now please, do not DM me the answers on either platform. That was an absolute nightmare. Instead, uh, this Google Form should suffice. You can fill it out as many times as you'd like btw, so don't worry about that.

[Google Form]

This one is all Mario of some type (including Yoshi, I think) and old, so no 2020 games whatsoever.

Anyways, it's updated. I left the final measure like this (I noticed three types of drum) since NotePad doesn't percuss:

Obviously incorrect final measure.

For future reference, when you make a new submission, reply to the topic with a YouTube video like so:

Ok, I've finally updated this one. Some measures like m10 and m35 sound real bad now, and I don't know what I did wrong. As usual, there may have also been some interpretation issues between what you said and what I ended up doing. Sorry, lol. And yeah, this is sounding good (excluding the troublesome measures).

Then cool, I’ll go with the F space and C space when I finally get around to it.

Ok, I’ll figure that out. Does it matter which lines/spaces they go on?
