Shadow Hearts OST(Horror genre/intense emotion) - interest?

This forum is for the announcement, organisation and discussion of Multi-Editor AMV Projects.

Postby SQ » Mon Oct 25, 2004 9:16 am

Well, I guess we could do that, and we could select certain tracks.

I took a track off the second disc and did an AMV to it(Beta, really)

It can be found here.

So, if you want an example of what type of AMVs you can make to the music... go for it.

Anyway, if everyone really still is interested, it will be a week or so until I can rip the other CD(computer problems).

But if the people who are interested in this are truly dedicated, I will rip select songs.

Since the people who're interested want the horror songs, I will rip those, as well as the "cool" songs(the ones I like... >_>)

and then we'll see if someone wants to mux them together and make a really tiny multi-editor project.

I figured out how to get all the tracks (I had to set my program to skip existing files and extract it 30 some times, one for each track.) Still deciding about which I like best.

As for mixing tracks, it's not as hard as it sounds (no pun intended.) In my first video I shortened the song and even took out half a verse without anyone being able to find the edits. On my second video, I made an intro using two difrent versions of the song then later I extended the song by about 20 seconds using a simultanious mixture of three different versions of the song.

Are you kidding me? Everytime I edit music, it sounds like uber crap.

Sorry about the extracting thing... I'll compress them differently next time... ^^;;

I've played both games all the way through (I own them) and I also own both of the soundtracks, but I wouldn't say 'horror' is the best way to describe the music. And, no offense intended, but perhaps if you got the real track names. For example, Track 1 is called Icaro.

Anyway, although this is tempting, I'm in the middle of making my own Shadow Hearts/Shadow Hearts: Covenant AMV, based around the story of the game, and in my opinion, making an AMV using solely the OST music from the first game will, well, leave it fairly empty. If you're going to do it, I suggest you try and splice some of the songs from the first game (such as Sign of Him [The Creation of God] with Evil Gate Opener from the second game.) Also, use the chant from Icaro only sparingly and where it sounds right, otherwise it will literally sound horrible. Try to mix in some of 'The Fate' as well, and of course, 'Sacrifice - Alice'.

Further, you may want to adjust your plan with the music. Mixing together 8 different songs won't work to create the imagry you want to see. Stick to one song to be your base, and edit that one. Unfortunatly, the OST for the first game probably isn't the best choice, as you pointed out, it's mostly sounds odd chords, and short melodies, with only the ending track and the bonus track at the end (track 36 'True Voice') on the second disc. I would suggest perhaps you take a look at the soundtrack for the second game, which features several songs to suit your purpose, such as 'Icaro Again,' 'The Fate,' 'Evil Gate Opener (parts 1, 2, 3 which can be merged to make one continuous song), and the ending track (I don't have the spelling memorized in Japanese, but it means Love Flower in english).

I have done my own editing, splicing, and merging of songs from these soundtracks, and I know what I'm talking about, so don't be stubborn and just dismiss this post. Of course, you're free to do as you like, but hopefully this insight will help you come out with something close to what you're looking for.
As the warlock said in the end, even if another age of storms buffets the world, I intend to go on living, and fighting, for you who saved me from the darkness, the one I love!

Actually, that was great info, thanks.

First of all, The reason I don't have the track names up is because the cd extractor I used extracted the Japanese character names, which my computer didn't like, so I had to go through and delete all the japanese characters so I could put them in a winRAR. I also, in that time, did not feel like looking through the CD booklet and retyping every single trackname in english.

I would've done it were there more interest in the project, but at this point, it would've been laborious to do so.

Secondly, I haven't played the second game, and I don't have the soundtrack for it. That's because the game is still too expensive for me right now, and I haven't even heard the music yet, so I doubt if I would want it, much less go through all the crap to find it like I did with the first OST.

Lastly, Why use Icaro sparingly? I like the chanting, and I think using it and True Voice as opening and ending credits(respectively) would be neat.

Also, I know the muxing would sound like crap, that's why this isn't a true project, it's only for gauging interest...

Thanks for your input though, I really appreciate it.


On a sidenote, did you rip the SH/2 games or are you capturing them for your AMV? I can't for the life of me figure out how to rip the damned game, and capturing has proven really cumbersome.

No, I don't think he was interested in the project, just wanted to scrap my dreams... :cry:

The ones I am interested in are:

02- Wind Which Blows From the Dark (Jin-Roh)

07- Noiz of Fangs (Texnolyze)

26- Psyco Temple (???)

and most of all, 17- Beltconveyor for Killers (Mononoke Hime)
I like this one because of the struggle between the peaceful piano line (which could represent nature) and the grating artificial rythms, (which could represent the destructiveness of mankind.) Then you have the periodic melody that could be Eboshi's theme and represent movement from one section to the next. I pretty much have a loose plan for the video all worked out.

Wow, really into this, eh, Pen-pen?

So I'm guessing the thousand extraction was worth it? ;)

Anyway, for now, I don't think this will be a multi-editor project... So if you want to make an AMV using one of the songs I ripped... Go for it on your own.

Otherwise... Eh... Unless some people spontaneously post that they're interested, I doubt htis will go anywhere.

(But that doesn't mean I won't try!)

I've finally backed up all my files, In a few days I will have reformatted and have a chance to rip the second disc.

Well SQ, the reason I suggested using Icaro sparingly was because on it's own, it's just a chant, with vocals and no music. If you were to edit it into a song however, you have to plan it carefully.

And if you liked the music in the first game, I'm sure you'd like it in the second game. Plus, after all, I did say I had the soundtracks, and I do have MSN and AIM, so . . . . you wouldn't necessarily have to go through a lot of crap to get the files ;)

Well, for now I'm afraid I can't, because I have a couple projects already on the go that I should finish first. Maybe next time.
