Update: Please check FINISHED VERSION!

This is a MIDI I’m in the process of making for the Roland SC-88Pro. The song is 「空想メソロギヰ」 (“Kuusou Mesorogiwi”), used for the opening of the anime Mirai Nikki, originally by Yousei Teikoku. As you can see, I’ve still got a long way to go, but since I haven’t uploaded anything for a long time, I decided to upload this preview of sorts.

As I’m making it for the Sound Canvas, I’m trying to take advantage of the various things it has to offer, such as a distortion insert effect with custom settings, cutoff frequency changes to make the down- and up-strokes of the guitar pick sound different, custom attack/decay/release times, and bank-changes for instruments such as palm-muted electric guitar and velocity-sensitive strings. Even though this sound module came out 15 years ago, it’s still quite capable of sounding modern. =D

I intend to continue working on this, although I’m having great difficulty discerning the individual notes of the strings, guitars, and even the drums, during the chorus. Also, I still have yet to start the bass, voice, backing vocal and “strange ambient sounds or maybe they’re just strings but it’s so hard to make them out properly” tracks.
