>inb4 muh leitmotifs
Soken overuses them. The mere fact that there are leitmotifs doesn't automatically mean that they're implemented well. He uses them as a crutch.

      It's all pretty comfy, makes me think of urban JRPGs from the early 90's

          Not the one I'm thinking of, but your style sounds way too close to what I am thinking of, so I'm sure you're the same guy. But maybe not.
          It was the track that kicks in once it sweeps through Sharlayan

            oh you're talking about Endwalker, I thought you meant 16 because that's the theme that plays when they show rosaria
            I have done a sharlayan remake yeah after the trailer but I forgot if I posted it here, I most likely have though. Or on /xivg/
            that was when i first started though and it sounded awful lmao. was it this one? https://voca.ro/1aVtZO7T1JK5

    What's with the smear campaign lately?
    >ackshully yoshitpiss doesn't do much directing someone else does a lot of the work
    >ackshully soken doesn't do much composing someone else does a lot of the work
    >ackshully koji doesn't do much translating someone else does a lot of the work
    Does it come from the fact that they're all working on 16 right now?

        Because they legit think the game is perfect so the only excuse to say it's not must be trolling.

    SHB and ARR had the best OSTs because they relied so little on leitmotifs overall. Yes, they have some, but you can actually go to a new area most of the time and not be thinking the whole time "this is the exact same song as the last one I heard for 30 minutes, just on a different instrument".

    People compare this mid composer to Nobuo... NOBUO of all people.
    Soken can't even write good songs, you have great ballads from Nobuo like eyes on me, and some of FFXIV's greatest themes were written by him.
    But nope, FFXIVfags can't even seem to differentiate Soken's music from Nobuo's.

      xivfags have really basic bitch taste in basically everything. they're extremely mediocre people. they're the sonic the hedgehog fans of the rpg world.

        I think the only song I liked from Soken, was Insanity from Shb, because it actually sounded like him pushing out of his boundaries.

    Soken is very cool, both as a person and as a composer.
    I think his more atmospheric themes are dull as fuck but his boss themes are astonishingly good and diverse.
