TFW K.K. Slider comes to play at your island!

I made some K. K. Slider-esque samples that aren't copyrighted by Nintendo. I also made a Sytrus guitar and whistle patch that are pretty close to what is used in Animal Crossing. Check out the 120kb project here!

J.K. sounds like K.K.'s southern cousin. Considering how many islands there are, it makes sense K.K. can't visit all of them.

that's great! I haven't played it but really enjoyed this. good job with that guitar!

All this Animal Crossing hype is killing me because it sounds fun, I don't own a switch, and people are price gouging for Switches right now sad

This is a really cool tune though. I like the way you wove in the animal crossing vocal style to make a cool melody. smile. Also the effect of the sliding guitar chords is very convincing sounding. Sounds exactly like holding a specific chord shape and just sliding it up a whole step.

Haha, cute! Very emotive voice-like synthesis. big_smile Neat composition too!

April 27, 2020 1:44 am

Wow! That's pretty close, haha. Really nice atmosphere in this one.

Dang, well it's fundamentally not that different from New Leaf, but being able to play on a tv might be the best feature for a lot of people.

I tried a bunch of stuff, like vocoding etc, but it turned out the closest thing was actually just using flstudio's old speech engine.

This is a fun one. The whistling, the nice bass touches and the processed voice!

April 28, 2020 1:33 pm

Ah yais love the sound of that funky guitar.  So plucky!

April 28, 2020 2:57 pm

Great guitar-sound. Just the right amount of delay on it. Wunderbar.

April 28, 2020 3:17 pm

Really impressed smile So much with such a tiny project. You're a true FL master.

I do own Animal Crossing on Gamecube, bought on a garage sale, and some ROMS for DS and 3DS, thought I think I haven't tried it yet. However I sometimes dig listening to the music on some random "let's play" in Youtube.

I almost got it half that size, since I used FL's speech engine for the phonemes, but this particular use case kind of slipped through Fl's compatibility holes. I'm not sure how well known it is, but FL does let you use the speech file in a few places you can use a wav, the speech pre-computes the samples on project load and is super tiny. It works with Sampler, Slicer, Wave traveller, Granulizer, but not Directwave which has the accurate loop points I needed, plus it's easy to create sample zones for each phoneme. I used velocity to select the phonemes since KK doesn't really change his volume, and I could easily use an automation clip if I wanted that. Plus you can hear the sample change when you "scroll" the velocity in the piano roll, making it very easy to compose with. I thought I could create a Patcher instrument with a bunch of Samplers, but Patcher only supports Directwave, not Sampler! WTH! It even supports Wave Traveller, but that would have been a nightmare to use in this situation! In the end I just bit the bullet and went with OGG files which work really great for tiny compressed samples and in general is way better than Mp3.

I got into ACNL on 3ds... It's a pretty good one to play if you don't have a Switch! There is also Happy Home Designer, and Pocket Camp is free-to-play on mobile as well!

Buddy, even I don't know the lyrics!

But I'm guessing it's spider related!

The whistling is such a good touch

May 1, 2020 3:11 pm

Pretty wacky sound, I've never seriously tried the FL vocal synth but I remember it being awkward enough that any cohesive use out of it is very impressive. Good delay work on this one, very fun to listen to.

Yeah, it's extremely awkward... I've always felt it was just thrown in there as an afterthought, it could really use a proper gui so you could easily make it sing... maybe something like Newtone.

The whistle and guitar patches are rad. I don't know how you do this stuff.  It's like magic!

The whistle is pretty much just a sine wave with a slow attack. Both of these patches are pretty simple, it's more of just how they are used; lots of quick glissandos, alternating direction strumming, guitar chunks on off beats, etc.

That's really cool.  It really is all in the attitude of how a sound is played. Thanks for the recipes!
