Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Want to know how VGM cover bands learn the exact notes from classic NES Soundtracks? Rob Kovacs of 88bit shows you step by step how to find the sound files, isolate the tracks, transcribe the notes and then arrange them for piano or any other instrumentation. Join in as Kovacs will transcribe and arrange a new tune in real time and learn how you can do this for your own group or just for fun! And to close the presentation Kovacs will give a brief performance of a previously arranged VGM track!
