It's just a hoax. There actually were a small number of dropped tracks but those were never put into the game to begin with. If anyone claims to be finding hidden unused tracks in the game code, they're BS'ing.

Re: Ask!

I had a question for Nicol Armarfi: Not sure if you've ever spoken about this, want to keep it a secret or if it's simply visible for everyone to see and i somehow missed it :lol: But, does your name have any reference to a certain character from the anime Gundam Seed ? lol, yeah. I caught most of ...

KS pretty much introduced me to classical music, I'm ashamed to say. I wanted to ask how long you've been playing and composing. And if you had any advice for someone who wanted to learn piano in his spare time.

Re: The Music of Katawa Shoujo

Afternoon was my favourite at first, before I realized it was all synth. I agree that some of the tracks just sound hollow or unhuman; if we had the resources to get everything recorded live we would've totally done it, but unfortunately we just don't. So because of this the entire soundtrack ended...

Re: Piano Sheet Music?

While reading the sheet music for 'Moment of Decision' original, posted way back by Nicol, I fell across a very "small" note. I just wanna know what this note means, I tried playing it fast like in the soundtrack, but it doesn't seem to work with my hands :lol: I hope I'm just reading the small not...

Re: Finally giving KS a chance

I notice that you're making a lot of references to JRPGs, simulation games, and other eroge with RPG components, but hardly any actual visual novels. Might I suggest that perhaps you are coming at this from the wrong perspective? A visual novel is exactly what it sounds like; a choose your own adven...

Re: Ask!

Where did the idea for one of the song's name 'Wiosna' come from? I was utterly surprised to see a word from my language in this game. Is the creator Polish or Japanese? When I started writing the soundtrack I was really bad at naming the songs, so a lot of those were named by other people on the t...

Re: Ask!

I've wondered since I finished the game recently, how did you decide on each characters themes? Parity and The Student Council are some of my favourite tracks in the game, but both of them seem to be the opposite of their characters. The student council is very relaxed and lazy sounding, which defi...

Sounds like something that would be challenging to learn since the intro and middle parts more complex than the rest of the piece

Re: Piano Sheet Music?

Hey Guys, I'm thinking of making a transposed version of Innocence for a choir to sing, but the one thing I need I haven't been able to find... What I was thinking of doing was having the choir sing along the notes that the stringed instruments use, but I haven't been able to find a score with that...

The new version of Stride didn't change at all musically from the original, it was just resampled with different instruments, so my piano arrangement from earlier in the thread is still accurate.

Re: Ask!

I was curious; what were the programs used for making the soundtrack? Especially the drum machine (assuming they're not real drums). I've used a few different drum samples but some of my favourites are EWQL Battery, a nice free .sf2 called 'evandro drums' and the drum kits included with airfont. Al...

Re: Piano Sheet Music?

I know this is slightly off topic, but what happened to your YouTube account Nicol? I don't remember ever seeing (I think I found a link to it somewhere in the forums once upon a time but the account is closed). Do you still have one and if so....what's on it? :P I use this one now http://youtube.c...
