I decided to do A Thing and give FinnOtaku’s medley a cleaner, more transparent master along with some minor patch changes.

Sytrus (Gold saw preset) -> SuperWave Professional (Generic supersaw)

3x OSC (Sinepulse #1) ->  chipsounds (SGB Pulse)

3x OSC (Sinepulse #2) -> SW Trance-Pro (Ramp/Saw superwave)

misc drum sample changes

Some updates for the first time in what seems like fivever (yes, FIVEver, not forever.); so let’s get down to business.

First up, I changed the layout of the site and added a new background, care of the same artist who I commissioned the transparent portraits from. Upon changing the layout I had to modify the header again to display my logo because people love putting basic features like that behind paywalls if you want simplicity.

These are from the relatively new Generation VI Pokémon remakes, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS. They don’t appear in the original games (Ruby, Sapphire or Emerald), as the GBA hardware did not support games of this size or 3D games in general. Both have been uploaded to VGMusic, YouTube and FA as of this post.

The one I’m listening to at the moment–Cloudtop Cruise–manages to take one of the best tracks from the Mario Galaxy duology and make it many, many times better than its source–the Gusty Garden Galaxy theme. I have no idea how Nintendo managed to pull this off, but they did, and it’s just amazing to listen to.
