This is where I will share all my ORGs with the rest of the forums. All of the following ORGs are made either by ear or by sheet music.
Feel free to use these in mods and stuff.
I will also accept feedback:
Recreations by Sheet Music: Challenger 1985 (dropbox) - Source Game: Gradius original, non-ORG version (youtube) Aircraft Carrier(dropbox) - Source Game: Gradius series original (youtube) Note: this theme is used over and over again throughout the Gradius series, all versions use the same melody at different tempos with different instruments. Also, I know the intro sounds bad on this one, that's only because it's sped up, I can't slow it down becuase it would ruin the tempo of the resot of the song and merely increasing the note length did not work.
Videos of the ORGs put into Cave Story with Resource Hacker:

Challenger 1985 (Gradius Stage 1) and Aircraft Carrier (Gradius I Boss Theme)
I only recognize Lavender Town, so I'll try to critique that. To start, the melody is waaaay too low-pitched. Bump it up two octaves (Operations > Current Track > Octave Up), that sounds more accurate. Besides that, I think it would benefit you to learn how to read sheet music / MIDIs so you can place the notes more accurately. But hey, I want to see you improve, so if you want you can try fixing it up with what I told you!
The others were crappy customs, but I didn't know much about octave yet. I'll try to learn how to do sheet music, or else I'm going to have to do the rest by ear. Thanks!
Oh, I use regular Orgmaker, so.. I can't find octave.
I'm not familiar with this theme, but there are a few things that stick out. It's monophonic in texture, and the one voice that does the melody is very flat in tone. I just looked up the original (I think; it's the NES, am I right?). The melody alone could use some volume adjustment with the individual notes; they fade out as soon as they are played.
Secondly, this theme is in triple metre, so you might want to adjust your bars to 3 beat 4 step maybe. The steps could vary, depend on how you want to pace the rhythms paced out and stuff.
The notes seem spot-on, for the most part, so try playing around with the volume and change the metre as suggested above. Also consider adding in accompaniment and percussion, which should make it sound less empty. It sounds like it only uses a broken chord line for accompaniment. That and a bass might help.
