Sequencer: FL Studio 8
Mastering: Audacity 1.3 Beta with LAME v3.97
16 channels:
-Two GPOs, 10 patches - Seven organ stops, three strings sections
-One GJBB, two instruments - Rhodes and Piano
-Five soundfonts in six channels - Papelmedia Ahh Choir and Irina Brochin, Zemljak Overture, two Sinfonia 3.6s (drum kit patches) and a Hammond B3
-One FL Slayer, Ebass 1 preset

Mixer routing:
-Maximus for some EQ on Master
-GPO 1 (Organ) - Magnus Smartelectronix (Pollak-LargeChurch)
-GJBB - Magnus Smartelectronix (Jring-Piano) and two mutually exclusive instances of Maximus - one to gate the Rhodes and Piano before 2:44, the other to brighten it afterwards
-GPO 2 (Strings) - Magnus Smartelectronix (Concert Hall Bright) and Fruity Stero Enhancer
-Papelmedia Irina Brochin - Magnus Smartelectonix (Concert Hall 1) and Maximus for some very light filtering
-All else through my usual, Fruity Reeverb 2 (The Venue)

Score changes:
-All "notated reverb" - that is, the repetition of notes slightly afterwards to simulate reverb has been deleted, simply because it confuses the ear and clutters the score.
-Flute in the opening is now Irina Brochin.
-Seperated out tracks according to instrument changes, since no plugin of mine can use instrument changes.
-Seperated Organ part into stops, for effect. Seems to work well. XD

-Usual process - export at 10% volume, amplify to peak just below a clip, export MP3 and tag.
-Added slight fade out to end.

*sniff* I think I'm going to cry...
Beautiful rendition of the Mother 3 credits. Brings back memories...


You've done an excellent job of bringing back all the emotions that I felt while playing Mother 3. Great job.


It's a great rendition of a great song.

On a side note, Mother 3's ending was the only book, video game, or movie ending that has ever made me cry.

...It was great. Thank you for this arrangement.


You perfectly remixed no remastered this. You should post this on YouTube.


Wow, Excellent work here, Beacon. Your attention to detail is impressive. This song is an excellent credits song. Did you make it for a movie/game? I really love the variation in all the instruments and the choir is well used as well. The building progression also gives this song a real feel and I really like it. Also liked the key change at the end.

Great song! Going on my favs, 5/5, 10/10.

Mother III is an RPG for GBA published for Nintendo. The music was composed by Shogo Sakai, so no, I didn't make it. What I did do was reorchestrate it entirely, and rendered it in FL. So it's still my work, I just didn't write it. XD

The progression is thanks to Sakai, I just played it up. I'm glad you liked it. And man... 5/5, 10/10 AND a fave?! Man that's awesome. Thanks man, you rock! XD
