Today I'll be teaching you how to Edit text in The legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
What is needed: Hex Editor, Project64 1.6 and the Zelda rom you wish to edit.
This is quite simple, go to hex editor and open up your zelda rom. Go to Search and click "Find". type in the text you wish to edit. For example, type "hello there" and it will show all text starting with what you type. Click the first square with the letter in it, and edit it to what you wish. If you end with extra space, fill it in by hitting SPACEBAR. Now, save it and open your rom. Go to whoever you edited and see what they say now! This is good for modification projects where different dialouge is required.
Taking something everyone cares about, and turning it into something everyone is curious about.
exciter: Highly recommend the SP2016, been using that reverb for years.

exciter: Would also recommend using delays to wetten your sound. Like to prioritize the use of delays over reverbs whenever possible, personally. Gives your sound a more vibrant and lively decay, considering the dynamic nature of naturally-occurring reverb

exciter: Roland's Space Echo is great for that purpose, can create a variety of evolving delays with that unit. It's great for percussion in particular, like to use it in combination with cymbals and snares on occasion myself

exciter: Fabfilter has a solid delay as well, think it's called 'Timeless'. Very versatile plugin, can have unsynced delays sounding strangely rhythmic with that one.

dj4uk6cjm: Not sure how to extract the samples from the CD unfortunately but I know which one your talking about I think, do you mean the CD soundtrack samples? Man I would like those too only because the samples are already preset.

dj4uk6cjm: I still work on perfecting delays to get them to sound more wavey in the bass sometimes. XD
Apr 17, 2014 21:09:08 GMT -5
exciter: Glad to hear it. When used as needed, delays can add just the right amount of depth and general interest to basses and other low frequency sounds
Apr 17, 2014 22:31:13 GMT -5
exciter: Uploaded an example demonstration there. Can hear how the delays applied to the ARP 2600 rhythm in the introduction there give the general mix a bit more bounce and 'jump', makes the overall piece seem much more lively

exciter: Can hear in the second example how large a difference a well-used delay can make on a relatively simple sample. The bass in the second example in that file is comprised of a single bass sample, might have been a combination of the Minimoog and the ARP 2600
Apr 17, 2014 22:34:15 GMT -5
exciter: A single bass sample played normally, with one instance of it in reverse for the 'vacuum' sensation. Given a straightforward triplet delay with some panning adds unmeasurable character and mystery to the sample. Lots of presence

punk7890™: dj4uk6cjm, yeah the soundtrack CDs. I have collected quite a few over the years (see Zelda 64 folder for the original samples not extracted from the game) so I might have a few TP sounds. I'll go through the game samples some time
Apr 17, 2014 23:59:35 GMT -5
punk7890™: and then go through my CDs and see if any match
Apr 17, 2014 23:59:48 GMT -5
dj4uk6cjm: Awesome and how do you extract the samples from the CDs? If you don't mind me asking, is there a method? I've only been able to extract from the games.

exciter: The CDs are purchasable sample libraries created by various audio production companies, the samples they contain are often used by video game and film production companies to save time in audio development, although some samples from the Zelda games appear
Apr 18, 2014 9:37:53 GMT -5
exciter: to have been made in-house
Apr 18, 2014 9:38:07 GMT -5
punk7890™: What, exciter said. If I remember correctly, TP uses a few samples from the sampler Roland-SC88.
Apr 18, 2014 14:08:28 GMT -5
punk7890™: I typically have mostly AKAI CDs. You can either use a AKAI device to play the sounds or a program would work.

blinx: Motherfuckers stole my bike up in this.

dj4uk6cjm: Made a quick forum for sample submissions, it's still a WIP but I'll be promoting it on my youtube channel. Hope to see some samples I've never heard before.
