OK, so appart from my love of games i also love music and am actually more of a composer then any thing else, and only recently started to work with rpg maker XP. one of the main reasons i started was so i would have something to make music for! my very own game with my very own music! ^ ^
Any ways, i was checking out the makers default music which is basically what i was expecting. midi quality music and with the usually gameish melodies. however, when i started listening to boss04 as its labeled in the maker, i went, hey this dosnt sound to bad!....if only it were played on a better sounding instrument then midi......................*tear*..................................wait a minute!? midis contain note data! my music programs are midi friendly as well...hmmmm. i think i have an idea. but damn its guna be hard to figure out all those notes.... wait, right, there midis!
so any ways after the smoke settled from the recent hot box and about 20 mins of messing with sounds and mastering i ended up with two satisfying versions of the boss04 theme! basically its the same notes as was in the midi file but played with a nice quality pipe organ! and after that i said hmm what if we added some more sounds to make it more orchestra and powerful.it is a boss battle after all. so i have a full orchestra version as well!
Now i dont think im personally going to use them in my games as i want all the music to be original, but i already made the songs just messing around and figured some people here might like to use them instead of the regular midi version. so here they are! now iv never hosted files before and never used media fire so i have no idea how long the links will last. but as of right now (june,18,2011) they should be working fine. If any one wants to reupload them somewhere better and post the links then all fine by me.
You may use the files as you wish, the only thing i ask is that credit be given and that you dont try to pass it off as your own. but you already knew that didnt you?
here are the two versions:
Organ only version: http://www.mediafire.com/?jq5cjgnr57v2514
Full orch version: http://www.mediafire.com/?6ocxxsw4f9ogps4
In case any one is wondering i solely use reason 4.0 for all my music endeavors. And have a youtube channel at www.youtube.com/leonardozuccarelli (No the music there may not be used, but feel more then free to enjoy it )
P.S. If there are any fellow reason users out their (advanced or begging) Im always glad to meet like minded people. I like to consider my self an intermediate composer/reason user. So i could always probably learn something from the pro's and help out any new comers. So if your intrested in say reason or composing in general or maybe would like to do a coop project (rpg xp related or not, and i dont mean anything commercial at the moment, im speaking purly as a hobby and for lulz) please feel more then free to PM me or or put your comments down below. Enjoy!
