EDIT: I made a video out of the medley and posted it on YouTube. CHECK IT OUT!

This here is a project that I have worked so ridiculously hard on that it's not even funny. It's a whole medley of one of my favourite games ever; Monster Hunter Tri. I started this project on the 19th of May and 404 patterns, 48 instruments, 84 automation clips and 36 hours of work later, I managed to finish it, incorporating seven different prominent melodies of the game. Note that the harmonies and instrumentation are all original and I added a few new parts myself.

Few quick disclaimers - I know this is long but please have patience with it. It's not repetitive. I barely repeated any patterns and added as much variety as humanely possible. Also, due to the fact that this is a medley, some transitions are really bad. I promise I tried my hardest to make them smooth but the game's music is so diverse that it's hard to keep it flowing in a medley.

Now, as for instruments, we've got:

Strings - Violins, violas, cellos (tremolo, legato and staccato) and double basses all from East/West Symphonic Orchestra.
Woodwind - Zourna, flutes, ney flute, pan flute and didjeridoo from Ra. Clarinet and staccato flute from Symphonic Orchestra.
Brass - Trumpets, French horns and trombones all from Symphonic Orchestra.
Percussion - Jaw harp, Cuban percussion and gong from Ra. Djembe, big hits and cymbal rolls from Stormdrum 2. Tambourine, snare, timpani roll and cymbal hits from Symphonic Orchestra. Latin percussion from EZdrummer. Clap, snap, clave and wind chimes are random samples.
Misc - Glock, harp, piano and choir from Symphonic Orchestra. Mandolin from Ra. Guitars are from Virtual Guitarist.

Here's a list of all the stuff that's I remixed from Monster Hunter. I split it into three parts - first part is the intro to the whole thing, second part has to do with the village and the city themes, third part is dedicated to the Ceadeus, (the final boss of the offline game), and the last part is the finale.

Now, I need to point out that this would NOT have been possible without the Monster Hunter fans over at the Monster Hunter Wiki forum. They're the ones who supported me all the way through and gave me so much feedback and advice, especially the members Lou Urau, Luciarn and Slyffer. Check out the thread here: http://goo.gl/gKmrv

Camoshark, Echo, Buoy, Blackhole12 and Darrenkerwin also deserve a mention for hearing my track and giving me feedback as I go along. Thanks also to Zero Flare and IaintElmo (MH Wiki forum members), two people I've played with on Monster Hunter Tri a lot who have also given me feedback.

SO YEAH. That's it. I really do hope you enjoy this. I worked a lot on it, by far the most I've worked on anything. I had other music projects to do and exams as well, which made it tough to work on this, but I finally got it done. Please post some feedback, even if it's just which part your favourite part is or whether you like it or not. Any feedback is greatly appreciated! Thanks for listening.
