Ragnarok Battle Offline – Stage 2 Final Boss : MIDI + Rin Kagamine-Style

Posted on 2008-01-23 at 18:45 in Music, Videos by Robbi-985.

A year or so ago I made a MIDI out of the final boss of Stage 2 on the excellent game “Ragnarok Battle Offline”. Now I’ve found out about Vocaloid2. And the most recent voice to be released for Vocaloid2 is the second voice in the “character voice series”, Rin Kagamine (鏡音リン) , whose voice is apparently stronger than Miku’s (whose voice has been criticized as being too soft).

[Watch in HQ]

So! Since the overdriven guitars in the music are certainly meant to sound “strong”, I decided to give Rin the job of singing it to test the supposed “strength” in her voice. She doesn’t handle the low notes well (sounds like a puff and then electronic), but I have to say I was very impressed at how the voice handles the “screaming” high notes. So that Miku didn’t feel too left out (=P), I gave her the job of the harmonizing ‘backing’ guitar, with a cool little stereo flanger to make her voice easier to notice. I know the lyrics I made are kind of lame. I let the MIDI loop and play through once more by itself when it reaches the end. By the way, that overdrive guitar the MIDI uses was sampled from my brother (‘steeeven1′ on YouTube) playing his electric guitar.

You can grab the MP3 with the voices here! (2.76 MB, 2:34 length). You can download the MIDI which I made and used in the MP3 here (27.1 KB, 1:16 length).

Please leave a comment if you want to! :D

    I made the lyrics up myself – the original music from the game doesn’t have any, and I needed some to show the voice off better.

    Hatsune Miku kara boku hikitsugimasu.
    koe wa motto ippai tsuyoi deshou ne?
    dakara kono ongaku wa genki desu.
    boku no name wo oshieteageru… boku wa
    Kagamine Rin!

    I’m taking over from Hatsune Miku.
    My voice is much more strong, isn’t it?
    Therefore this song is lively. [i.e. That's why I chose an energetic song to show off her voice.]
    I’ll tell you my name… I’m
    Kagamine Rin!

    what game is that?

  5. Robbi-985 says:

    It’s called “Ragnarok Battle Offline”. It’s a 2D side-scrolling fighting game. The only way you can play with more than 1 player is if you do so using the same computer. The characters in the game are the same as those in Ragnarok Online, but it’s not an RPG like Ragnarok Online is.

    I see…maybe I will give it a try when I have time.
