This is a track I composed about a year and a half ago using William Kage's FF6 soundfont (or rather, the one found on his site). I originally composed the melody as part of a brief, looping piano piece, and after transcribing it out the harp and bass parts sort of fell into place. The samples used in this final version are derived from the Roland Sound Canvas VA and Proteus VX VSTs, and were mixed using a combination of Logic Pro, FL Studio, and LMMS.

This is really nice. And I think that you do capture the feeling you were going for pretty well, I could easily picture this in FF6. Some of the main melodies I found got a little off track, at times there was lots going on when I felt like less would be more effective. Good sounds all around though, those strings especially have that Final Fantasy touch.

I really dig the composition, but I have to say I kind of wish that harp sounded closer to an acoustic harp. Otherwise, really sweet piece, thanks!

Absolutely, and thank you for the input! I've been trying to create an instrument that sounds as close as possible to the harp font from Final Fantasy VI (which imo sounds fairly acoustic) but have been struggling to figure out how the sound programmers at Square made it sound so good. I think for this one I sampled one of the SC8820 harps and ran it through EQ to try to get a similar tone, but at the cost of sounding a bit tinny and buzzy. I will definitely keep this in mind going forward. Thanks a bunch!
