I'm doing a remastered version of the soundtrack from Breath of Fire 3. I'm going to release it when it's finished and it will be available for free. Hopefully I can work with Sumthing Else Distribution, who works with Capcom to get music out to the fans.
Here's the software I use:
Notation program - Finale 2010
Instrument Libraries - Colossus, Garritan Personal Orchestra, Symphonic Orchestra Gold, Stormdrum.
HQ Mastering - Nero Wave Editor
