  • Hi DT here, I've noticed the last software has made it possible again for users to change their own usernames, but now with a new functionality allowing staff to approve or reject the change as it goes through. This has the potential to save a bit of hassle for everybody; however, in order for it to be worth leaving on it will need to not be abused. I request that all users continue to fulfill the general expectation of only requesting a new handle very occasionally, e.g. to fit in line with what they now use in most other places. The next while-ish will be treated as a trial period to gauge whether or not to keep it this way or change it back again (again).

I recently got an idea to put Kero Blaster soundtrack in Cave Story. After a closer look I saw it consists mostly of Organya samples, so I started thinking whether it's possible to translate the PxTone soundtrack to .orgs... Well turns out we can and the result sounds quite close to original (in most cases).

I've converted most of the tracks from OST using rain's OrgMaker and then spent few hours fixing them up, the result is a pack of quite closely-to-original-sounding 30 Kero Blaster .orgs

updates:
- v2: fixed instruments in kb_stg01a.org

I've only really listened to most of the stage tracks so far and I must say that it's always wonderful to see Pixel tracks made in other DAWs transcribed into ORG. So far, they sound quite close to the original, though I'm pretty sure track 1 in kb_stage01a is supposed to be wave 61, not 92 (with the exception of the opening bars maybe). Personally, I would add decays to the HiOpens and lower their volume further; they just sound a little too pronounced (and the fact that the ORG drum tails aren't as easily controllable as they are in PxTone doesn't help). At measure 27, I think there's enough steps on the grid that track 2 could do that glissando to G4 instead of holding that D3 for one beat. Even if it wouldn't be as smooth because of the portamento in the original, I think the wait time is small enough that it could at least be attempted.

That's really all I've noticed so far. I'm glad this got me to download the entire Kero Blaster soundtrack onto my newer laptop despite me purchasing it on Steam years back. That music was my study jam back in uni.

Also the soundtrack was made to sound good in Cave Story, problem with drums is they aren't really replacable...

Your transcriptions sound very accurate.

Almost as if the instruments are the exact same from the Wave100! :p It is actually possible to use the drums from Kero Blaster in Cave Story though, with the OrgKutsu hack that Noxid made a long time ago. Only thing is that you will need to make the drums be set to 22050 Hz and lower their pitch in order to make them sound normal (in OrgMaker, OrgPlayer, and Cave Story, they strangely raise the pitch for any imported custom wavs, this has been a thing for as long as it can be remembered, and is possibly a bug from Pixel's side of things).

Right. I dunno, I think even just lowering the volume and adding a bit of volume enveloping to the HiOpens could make more of a difference. Sure, it's not going to be exact, but my issue there was more to do with how the ORG sounded on playback than matching the authenticity of their sound. That part is definitely more of my own personal taste. :p

(edit) I'm also pretty sure that in the stage 1 ORG, track 1's notes at measure 60 should be held to the end of that bar instead of cutting off on the fourth beat.
