Soundtrack Reinstrumentation - Instrument List
« on: July 17, 2005, 11:54:29 pm »
Phase one is necessary before we can move to phase two, which is actually trying out new instruments and uploading samples to pick the best choice for each song. For phase one, you need Winamp and the .spc player plugin at snesmusic.org . Now, I need the holes in this list filled. Please be very specific. Use http://cc.herograw.com/Zeality/CTSoundBank/ to try out the instruments without any current name.

Anything in parantheses is currently lacking its proper, instrumental name.

00 - Silence
01 - Clap
02 - Conga
03 - Bongo
04 - Tambourine
05 - Bass Drum
06 - Tom Drum
07 - Closed Hi-hat
08 - Loud Hi-hat
09 - Shamisen
0A - Ethnic Wood
0B - Hembra
0C - Udu Drum
0D - Tabla
0E - Bodhran
0F - Padded Drum
10 - Djembe
11 - Electric Guitar Pluck (does not sustain)
12 - Trombone
13 - Piano
14 - Harpsichord
15 - Pizzicato Strings
16 - Church Organ
17 - Flute
18 - Brightness
19 - Electric Bass
1A - Bass
1B - Millennial Fair Shout
1C - (Millennial Fair Strings)
1D - Accordion
1E - Electric Guitar
1F - Shaker
20 - Open Hi-Hat
21 - Music Box
22 - High Flute
23 - Future Synthesizer
24 - Trumpet
25 - Snare Drum
26 - French Horn
27 - Closed Hi-Hat
28 - Bell
29 - (Ruined World Clanging)
2A - (Drum sound in ocean ambience)
2B - Xylophone
2C - String Synthesizer
2D - Celesta
2E - Water Drip
2F - Sitar
30 - Magus Laugh
31 - Ratchet
32 - Pan Flute
33 - Deep Bass
34 - Organ
35 - Glockenspiel
36 - (Click Sound)
37 - Vibraphone
38 - Alto Sax
39 - Running Water
3A - Choir
3B - Pendulum
3C - Mystic Chanting
3D - Mystic Chanting

The Magus Laugh is unfortunately incompatible with other songs. 3C and 3D are actually used in the Mystic chanting, but the pitch is very, very low for them, rendering them as squeaks in other songs.

I catalogued a few of those in my efforts to remix some stuff.  I gave the .spc files to ZeaLitY for review and to put up for the rest of you guys, because I have nowhere to host them.  I do have six years of musical training under my belt, in two different capacities; band and choir.  I was an All-Regioner in both, so that gives me a little more qualification, though for the percussion I enlisted the help of one of my percussionist friends who's still in high school; he's made the Texas All-State concert band three times in a row, and he's going to be a senior this year.  Here's hoping for number four.

Anyway, 22 is most definitely an oboe.  38 is an alto sax.  1F is a castinet.  24 is a trumpet.  12 is a trombone.  2D is the Zealian bells, though I have no idea what they're called in real life.  37, I would have to say is a vibrophone; it's the instrument used to play most of At the Bottom of the Night.

VIBRAPHONE! I could not remember for my life that name, even though I knew that was it.

Heads up...

18 is a synth called Brightness, and, 35 should be a Celesta, and, 2D is a Glockenspiel.

35 is more easily recognized as "Schala's Bells," seeing how that's the instrument used in her theme, and it's used NOWHERE else in the game...

Nah, it's fine. We're pretty close to be done now; Geiger will be pleased.

And, just asked sis about instrument 38..

She said it was a clarinet (she is the clarinetist in the family), so...

EDIT: On second thought, it could also be an Ocarina, another wind instrument. I have one *holds it up*

I'm a clarinetist and have been for six years running, and I can tell you that that's no clarinet.  I'm also a massive Zelda fanatic, and that's not an ocarina either.  It's an alto sax.  There's nothing else it could possibly be.  Its timbre isn't easy enough to be either one; the edge on it prevents it from being either a clarinet or an ocarina, but it's not edgy enough to be a tenor sax.  The only way that could be one of those is if the guy playing them is incredibly drunk.

I'm also a Zelda fanatic (been playing since I was 3 or 4! XD), and am replaying OoT (for the 6th time), and, the sample on OoT is just a tad sharp compared to a real ocarina...

The timbre is indeed a tad sharper, but it does resemble an ocarina sound.
