No. I didn't magically change THOSE bouncy Mario-styled note blocks to have a different graphic. Here's what I've actually
have done. I ripped Minecraft's Note Block samples, and turned them into .brr files!! YEP! Here's a preview of the samples in action on an SPC
Recognize these sounds? I'll list them in further detail below. Oh and BTW, the names of the actual files in-game are what you see below, but with "mcnb_" tacked on to the beginning to distinguish them appart a little easier.
•mcnb_bdrum.brr → Kick
: This is the base drum/low kick sample. It's the big drum that shakes, and it sure sounds like one too.
•mcnb_bell.brr → Celesta
: I think it's supposed to be a celesta. Sounds crisp and clean. I'm calling it a celesta though. I mean, is a bell really an instrument?
•mcnb_click.brr → Wood Block
: Clicking is not an instrument, lol. Also, if it sounds more like a wood block, then how come glass is used in-game to emulate the sound, and not wood
•mcnb_dbass.brr → Acoustic Bass
: It's actually supposed to be a double-bass according to the wiki page (if that's even a thing). Yep, it's a bass alright.
•mcnb_flute.brr → Flute
: It's a flute. It sounds like a flute too. That's all.
•mcnb_guitar.brr → Steel Guitar
. I'll admit, this one was tricky to pull off. I found a way to make it work though, and still keep it sounding like a guitar.
•mcnb_harp.brr → Harp
: The most popular note block sample to use ever. It sounds like a harp, but it gets used so much in note block compositions that it can be just the basic treble sample to go to for anything high pitched (at least before they added the newer ones finally).
•mcnb_icechime.brr → Tinkle Bell
: The file name is implying that the sample is called an "ice chime". It's named that way because you need packed ice to emulate the sound. I think it's meant to be a Tinkle Bell, but I'm not sure. It's a cool
sample, and it sounds like someone is playing with musical ice.
mcnb_pling.brr → Electric Piano...? IDK?
: Your guess is as good as mine as to what this is meant to be. I guess the file name is accurate, since I can hear it go *PLIIIING*
. Sounds quite a lot like the mcnb_harp.brr sample actually.
mcnb_snare.brr → Snare Drum
: A very rusty-sounding snare drum. It works fine though, and it kinda sounds like a hi-hat at much higher octaves.
mcnb_xylobone.brr → Xylophone
: You read the file name right BTW. It's called a xylobone, because the sound is made from using bone blocks. Sounds like a xylophone for skeletons.
...and that's all of them.
So I decided while ripping these samples to give some of them loop points for better use with ADSR.
But... what good is it to leave these samples on their own doing nothing? I made an SPC with these samples!
The download below is an actual note block composition made with a tool called Minecraft Note Block Studio. This is one of the songs that came with the program that I decided to "ear port". The song was originally made by Gershon Kingsley, and note block composition credit goes to someone named MrMassacre8. So Massacre, if you're somehow seeing this, Hi!
Alright, here's the SPC (looped version): popcorn.spc
Now, if anyone want's to use this song, I will be more than happy to submit this to the SMW Music database.
That's about it.
I plan on submitting all these samples to the BRR section later for everyone to use!
They're in the BRR section if you want them! Link CURRENTLY AWAITING MODERATION
P.S: this is my very first C3 thread ever. I hope I did something good/entertaining for you guys.
