October 2020 Greetings: The "Final Three Months" Are Now Here / Possible New Music Arrangement Files Coming Soon...?

Posted by Merit Celaire on Thursday, October 1, 2020 - 08:39 PM

What's happening, awesome people? We have now arrived at the "final three months" of an oh-so-challenging year that has tested all of us in many ways imaginable. In regards to these music operations as a whole, although yours truly has been trying hard to keep you all informed and let everyone know that I'm still alive and not giving up on this thing, there has been a very large gap in regards to getting new Super Nintendo music style arrangements posted. If you can recall, the last ones that I did were targeting the musical score of Mario Kart Arcade GP DX, which can be seen here; this was posted way back in March a few days before the "coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic" started to wreak havoc on the United States and messing up everyone's routines, including mine.

Fast forward to today: the COVID-19 pandemic is still wreaking havoc everywhere without any mercy, and I've still got this backlog of upcoming Super Nintendo music style arrangement covers to see about finishing up and/or finalizing to share with you faithful followers/listeners. I know you all are asking: "M. C., it's been six to seven months without any new stuff from you; when will we get the chance to see any new postings?"

The answer: I'm seriously am still hoping we can at least start to get this rolling before the end of the year. Recently, I've been investigating some online audio editing tools/websites that could be good candidates to use for the finalizing process after I've finished the "tracker procedure" for each Super Nintendo music style arrangement done. Nothing final as of yet, but I'm closing in on something that I could possibly use during these "final three months". Additionally, I've managed to purchase a new flash drive that I'm specifically using for doing the "finalizing process" of new files for these music operations; I am keeping fingers crossed that if there aren't any snags in this investigation process, you just might see new "music arrangement postings" from me during this final quarter of the year. Fingers crossed!

Meanwhile, on a quick side note: I may have mentioned this before on a previous entry on the site, but it bears talking about once again - although I haven't run into cases like this yet for our music operations, I have seen via "social media portals" like Twitter and Discord many cases of certain people committing blatant "plagiarism" of other people's works (whether it be actual artistic works, musical works in general, etc.). As you all know, plagiarism is a situation that I take very seriously; even one case of plagiarism is too much and is a personal insult to the person that actually did the work to begin with in the first place, and it is just flat out wrong and unethical. I am hoping that during the course of this month, we can see about getting a new form implemented on this site which will allow you faithful followers/listeners/visitors of these beloved music operations to alert me of any case of plagiarism regarding the related music files hosted at this place. More details to come soon regarding this matter; but until then, this is to be made very clear: we will not allow any form of "plagiarism" regarding our music arrangement file stuff, period. And here's hoping that when we do get the new form in action, we can find and go after those that try to test these music operations via that offending angle and put them in check. Stay tuned, everyone.

Until then, I have to end this here and get ready for a very challenging "final three months" ahead starting tonight. As always, make sure to keep this front page in your browser's bookmarks so you won't miss any new postings from yours truly; also, don't forget to submit a follower request on our Twitter account if you haven't already, submit an temporary invite link request to our related Discord server, or even join us on IRC. See you awesome people later, I'm out.

This evening, friends, I've finally snagged the opportunity to write our latest "Music Arrangements Outlook" article which focuses on certain installments that are currently on our radar at this time from the Mario 35th Anniversary Direct video presentation which was posted on Nintendo's YouTube channel earlier this month.

Could there be any possible Super Nintendo music style arrangement candidates on the horizon here as the months forge ahead? And could there be some possible happenings that might rock my planbook on the backend regarding certain featured installments that were shared in the presentation? You can all find out by going to this article which has just been posted tonight. Take care for now, awesome people! I'm out.

Special Shoutout: Tomoya Tomita and Konami's "Animaniacs"

Posted by Merit Celaire on Monday, September 28, 2020 - 07:42 PM

Snagging the chance tonight to do this quick special shoutout posting; the other day as I was checking through the timeline for our music operation's Twitter account, we came across this posting from talented videogame music composer Tomoya Tomita - it came with his showcasing all of the songs that he did for Konami's Animaniacs game for the Super Nintendo system. This is what he wrote in the tweet which he showcases the work that he did for it:

"This is the first game I've ever done all the music and sound effects myself. I was staying in Chicago when I did this."

I'm very sure that this also included creating the Super Nintendo music instrument set itself done for the Animaniacs game in which thanks to "insiders", I'm able to use to cover certain modern Mario game songs today including, but not limited to stuff from Captain Toad: Treasure TrackerSuper Mario Galaxy 2, and Mario Sports Mix. And this is the guy to thank for creating that music instrument set in the first place; so we definitely salute you for this special contribution to the videogame music fan community, Tomita.

Once again, make sure to check out this Twitter posting from him sharing the overall musical score he composed for Konami's Animaniacs SNES game itself. Also, on a side note, he was also one of the composers/arrangers for another Konami SNES game, Castlevania: Dracula X. And as if that's not enough, he was one of the lead composers for the Nintendo Wii game Wario Land: Shake It! (which I've also done SNES music style arrangements of some of the songs from that game, which you can check out here); make sure to check the musical score itself from there as well in general.

Finally, for tonight, the series of Super Nintendo music instrument set polls that I've been doing on Twitter recently will be focusing on the Animaniacs game; if you are a confirmed follower there, please make sure to cast your votes for it when I get the poll posted shortly. And for those who aren't followers of our music operations there yet, don't forget to submit that follower request so you won't miss out on placing your vote on the upcoming aforementioned poll along with other related ones that I'll be doing afterwards. Take care until next time, all! I'm out.

New Series Of "Twitter Polls" Begin (Targeting Featured SNES Music Instrument Sets)

Posted by Merit Celaire on Thursday, September 24, 2020 - 08:25 PM

Quick heads-up, friends: earlier this morning, we managed to start a new series of polls at the Twitter Portal area of these music operations which focus on the Super Nintendo music instrument sets that I have been using in my arrangement works here. For those of you who are confirmed followers at our Twitter profile page there, the first poll is up which focuses on the music instrument set that was done for Konami's Batman Returns game. If you haven't done so already, make sure to find that post in question asking about this specified set and place in your votes. As always, this poll will close in one week from the time of its posting.

More Twitter polls will be made targeting other featured Super Nintendo music instrument sets for these operations as the days forge ahead (one per day, Monday through Friday, except on major holidays), so stay tuned. Also, as a friendly reminder, if you haven't done so already, please make sure to submit a follower request on the same Twitter profile page so that you won't miss out on any new polls in relation to this subject. Thanks in advance, all; I'm out.

UPDATE (9/25/'20 - 8:29 P.M. (CST)) - As of tonight, the second related poll has been posted on our Twitter profile focusing on the featured instrument set of LJN/Software Creations' Spider-Man and the X-Men: Arcade's Revenge (as created by Geoff and Tim Follin, who also did the musical score for it). Make sure to cast your vote on that one too before the "one week expiry" time. Thanks again.
