Re: Dekkadeci's VGM Piano Transcriptions: Team Fortress 2 - Square Dance Taunt

Does this help?
Sadly, it doesn't: all it's got is the "opening bar" version of the introduction and an amusing rendition of "What Is Love" overlaid on top in the latter parts. (I believe the memer has a point: "What Is Love" is in G minor, which meshes well with the strong D major chord use of the Square Dance taunt.)

What I'd really love is a YouTube video with this, hopefully not obscured by the voices of Team Fortress 2 characters: https://wiki.teamfortress.com/w/images/8/8f/Fortress_reel_loop2.wav

I don't really know anything about TF2 so I can't be much help, but I can say that you definitely wouldn't have to submit each of these separately.  They would be totally fine as one sheet under subtitles.

Re: Dekkadeci's VGM Piano Transcriptions: Sullied Grace (Kirby: Triple Deluxe)
« Reply #32 on: December 30, 2018, 01:49:36 AM »

Yeah, I think I need help for this one:

My transcription of "Sullied Grace" from Kirby: Triple Deluxe:
https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5372296

Kirby: Triple Deluxe

This piece is so percussion-heavy that I transcribed loads of drum beats as piano notes this round. I no doubt mucked around with the accompaniment in the process, especially its octave voicing...and I may have changed the octave voicing of some of the melody and top parts. I also may have simplified that distinctive electric guitar riff at the last tempo change (and passages like it).

I'm the most uncertain about the left-hand notes of Bars 65-88 and the right-hand notes of Bars 127-133. In particular, I sometimes hear different notes for the last four 16th notes of Bar 131.

I'm also not 100% certain about the lowest organ notes of Bar 14 and some of the left-hand notes in Bars 49-64.

I realize the tremolos in Bars 111-126 are nearly unplayable, but you don't have to play them that fast: I personally can only play 16th-note triplets there at fastest.

And the 3-voice right hand parts of Bars 17-24 and Bars 49-64 are a mess--anyone got better ways to format them?

Dekka, I think you should submit this. The site could use it.

This is one of those places where I would condense some voices together for playability and readability.  For example, in bar 17 the semibreve could be changed to make a dyad dotted minim with the A which would mean there were only two voices.  Another example would be bar 20 you could just cut the D from the chord altogether since it's in the second voice (and restruck again later) so it'll sound pretty much the same but without looking as strange.  So yeah, I'd just recommend going through that section and trying to remove voices where it looks janky by incorporating them into other voices where possible.  You should be able to write that entire section out with only two voices after doing that I think.

I took your suggestions and successfully managed to condense the right-hand parts of Bars 17-24 and Bars 49-64 to two voices.

Re: Dekkadeci's VGM Piano Transcriptions: Classical (The Incredible Machine)
« Reply #36 on: February 22, 2019, 06:41:39 AM »

This time, I don't need help!

My transcription of "Classical/Tilting at Windmills" from The Incredible Machine:
https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5458858

The Incredible Machine (MIDI)
(Starts at 6:37)

The Incredible Machine (CD)

My transcription is based on both the MIDI and CD versions. The MIDI version is available in http://www.mirsoft.info/wogm_download.php?data=YToyOntpOjA7czo1OiIxMzM1OCI7aToxO2k6MTU1MDgwMzE5NDt9 ...and yeah, I ripped the notes from the MIDI file, tried to not have notes overlap or generate unplayable chords, and checked them against the CD version. While I mainly based this transcription on the MIDI version, I respect the lack of piano notes in the CD version in the starts of Bars 12, 14, and 16, and I made the G# optional in Bar 14 because it appears in the MIDI version but is a nicer-sounding G in the CD version. I also left off articulations from the first right-hand note of Bar 4 because that note is staccato in the MIDI version but legato in the CD version.

Note that the trills are for both half notes in the right hand.

Back to needing help:

My transcription of "Battle of Oblivion" from Bravely Second:
https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5490355

Bravely Second

Again, this piece is so percussion-heavy that I transcribed loads of drum beats as piano notes this round. I no doubt mucked around with the accompaniment in the process, especially its octave voicing.

I had a hard time hearing the bassline of Bars 23 and 69, the last eighth note in the bass of Bars 32 and 78, the last eighth note in the right hand of Bars 42 and 88, and the precise drum rhythms of Bars 33-36 and Bars 79-82. Anyone think they need to be fixed?

Except for the grace note in Bar 92, I simplified away the slides and grace note tendencies of Bars 89-112. I don't tend to sing any of them whenever I sing this theme, anyway.

I tried hard to eliminate collided notes this round (the staccato notes in Bars 20 and 66 are to ensure those notes don't actually collide with the right hand). Let me know if I missed any!

Also, the playback of the trill in Bars 59-61 is bugged, I swear.

So I doubt you've heard of the game Monolith, but I think I need a bit of help with this piano transcription:

My transcription of "The Trial" from Monolith:
https://musescore.com/user/9996931/scores/5653049

Monolith

This piece is quite percussion-heavy, so I transcribed several of the drum beats as piano notes in Bars 9-24.

I'm quite uncertain about the precise rhythms of the Beat 2s of Bars 1-8 and the last left-hand note of Bar 4.

(Sheesh, I think a circa-30-second song with not much harmonies and an easy-to-ignore arpeggio line should be easy, but then it throws curveballs at me....)
