Early Gamey Stuff
Most here is highly Influenced by if not transcriptions/arrangements of music from the Zun's Touhou series of games... particularly from the first five games which ran on the PC-98.. Aka 'the music of the Yougakudan':
WTF is a Tofu?
"Many years ago in Gensokyo, there was a band known as the Yougakudan which dearly loved FM synthesis. Yougaku" refers to a type of music that is in danger of disappearing from today's world, FM synthesis." - Xlated quote from Akyu's Untouched Score Vol. 1 CD
The PC-98 utilized a Yamaha YMBlahblha IC which featured a 3 channel PSG synth and 3 channels of FM systhesis (OPL-N flavor'd). The 3 PSG channels were very similar tonally to the ubiquitious AY-8-8910 3 channel PSG IC used in countless hundreds of arcade games in the 1980s Gyruss - Had Six AY-3-8910s!!, and etc...
Blah, blah, blah...
☆ Mr.Vain Vs. Touhou
Dear friend of mine sent me the old 1990's techno hit Mr. Vain, which brought back flood of memories.. I started playing along with it and thought o wow i should make a Touhou style version, and here it is. Hope you find it amusing I do. :D
I just bought a used Yamaha TX81Z FM Tone Module and this is first song I created with it. I need practice editing the sounds more. It comes preset with a lot of rather boring plain tones. Think this turned out okay for first attempt with new sounds.
Made this one ~ July 2010. Really like how it turned out, is very well planned.
Lotus Land Story
title track from Touhou04 Lotus Land Story. Rendered on SK-88Pro. Agonized over this one for a while as it is one of my favorites, finished it months ago but only now listening to it again and isn't so bad. ^_^;
☆ Eternal Shrine Maiden.mp3 (Alt. Arrange)
Alternate arrange ... Pleasing sounding sk88pro arrangement of ESM with nice ending.
☆ Eternal Shrine Maiden.mp3 (Synth Arrange) or (Synth Arrange lossless .flac)
from Touhou01 The Highly Responsive to Prayers, levels 1 ~ 4. Rendered on SK-88Pro. This is a re-recording made after cleaning up my sound system and noticing the previous release sounded horrible. u_u;; Less distortion now than original release. and also changed the drums quite a bit. May make one more go at it this time with particular attention to making the instruments more distinct.
☆ Maple Dream
Another MML, this time an arrangement of the Maple Dream off the Phantasmagoria of Dim. Dream soundtrack. Rendered on Nintendo DS. Think this one turned out quite well!☆ ^__^
Sorta rockish sounding song made in late december.
Excited about getting an SK-88pro synth, made this.
Eternal Shrine Maiden PSG
from Touhou01 The Highly Responsive to Prayers, levels 1 ~ 4. Rendered on NDS using the NDS_BGMDRV.
This song is an attempt at creating a Touhouish style composition entirely from scratch. Saying attempt because I feel it falls short, but somehow it persuades me to post itself here.
☆ = songs I likes the best :D
