Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

Speaking of which, piece 5: Painful History! Where the only more painful thing imaginable is the difficulty it took to make.

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

That's the thing, the songs that typically aren't orchestra material give me a chance to show a different way of looking at the piece. I've chosen my next song now anyway, might leave Parity til later.

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

It really means a lot to me to hear you say that! :D I've been trying a lot of different things with all the suggestions I've been given, and I think it's working. ^^'
Next up, by the way, is Parity. ^^
EDIT: Parity seems absolutely impossible...o___o Will try something else.

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

Literally sacrificing my sleep for this whole thing, somehow vodka and coffee is a creative mixture haha Anyway, number 3: Shizune's Theme, "Three Stars"! Really happy with this one, especially as I didn't think it would fit itself with orchestra. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCWXEhow-RI&feature=y...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

Thank you! :D I took your advice on board and added some more chords, and I already had instrument solos in place, it was just a matter of rendering them properly. ^^ It's amazing the difference just using the instruments differently makes, since this is the same set of instruments (with just a few ...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

Part 2, Cold Iron. This probably isn't very good but I've tried everything I can think of, including around 35 different mixes of it because instruments were too loud or something. I took previous suggestions on board to do with using harmonics and not just arranging different parts of two melodies....

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

That would be because I'm limited in my options, I don't have a real orchestra to play them nor do I have a high-quality DAW like East West. So I'm making do with what I have, a composing tool (Finale 2011), a soundbank from a symphonic orchestra and a freeware DAW in the hope it works. Which appar...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

For me it does sound like you took midi tracks and replaced typical midi instruments with sound samples. That sounds weird. That would be because I'm limited in my options, I don't have a real orchestra to play them nor do I have a high-quality DAW like East West. So I'm making do with what I have,...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

Thanks for the help, I'll work these into a final version. The thing is that I felt the piano worked so well in the original it was difficult to find anything to work just as well. ^^'

Katawa Shoujo Orchestrated - Katawa Symphony

So I've been experimenting with orchestration for a long while now, and I've decided. I believe I have enough skills now to orchestrate the entire Katawa Shoujo OST. This here is going to be a thread where I upload these orchestrations, and I hope I will gain some good feedback on them as well as gi...

Re: Katawa Shoujo Music Remixes

Haha, thank you both. I actually just restarted Lilly's route myself, so this'll be a good chance for me to pick out the songs needed :)
Let's see...I have a week off, so it should take me a couple of days to make? I'll post it here when I'm done (though I'm quite glad this place is still active.)
