Sorry for the late update. I knew I said I would update in one or two days after my latest update, but I just didn't know what to write at the time. I have been working on phase 3 since Saturday though.
As I said in the previous update, phase 3 is sound insertion which includes sound effects and music. I've already hit an obstacle in the sound effect department. I need the sound effect from Chrono Trigger that plays in the intro during the scene transitions. The one where that tattered-on-the-edges black screen whooshes by. I tried recording it by turning off the music channels, but the sound effect gets messed up if I do that. So right now I had to skip inputting that sound and continue on. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do about that sound effect though... I might have to replace it, but I don't really want to.
Another thing that has me thinking is whether or not I should use Tales of music for this episode. Right now none really seem to fit any situation in the episode, but since this episode is themed on the Tales of series I think it would be weird to not have some music from the series in there to add to the theme. At the moment I thinking of maybe using a battle theme from Tales of Symphonia for the goblin action scene, I have three in mind which include:
-Like a Glint of Light
Since the scene is kind of desperate, "Like a Glint of Light" sounds too positive and hyped up for the emotion I'm trying to portray. "Keen-edged Blade" sounds like it could fit, but the first half of the song is kind of slow. As for "Full Force," it's the one that could fit the most, but there's something that I don't like about using it for this particular scene, like it could used to a better effect somewhere else. Anyways, I'll still think about it some more, since I have a little while before I start adding the music to the episode.
It's already Thursday and I wanted to release episode 8 before Super Smash Bros. Brawl came out because I will be playing that game to death when it comes out, but it looks like episode 8 won't meet that deadline. If episode 8 isn't released by Saturday, it will definitely be out sometime next week. So hold on until then, just a little longer!
