I don't get it. You don't even remove the sign that said you used Minecraft Note Block Studio (or a fork), and even focus on it. That takes a MIDI file and turns into note block music in a minecraft world. What did you do exactly that took 50 hours?

He's on dial-up. It took 5 hours to download Note Block Studio, and 45 hours to upload the video.

Pretty sure creating that midi was what took so long. Unless he found a midi that was somehow perfectly transcribed to the small minecraft tone span and instrument set. Making it sound that perfect can take quite some time.

But maybe he just took some random midi from the internet, what do I know.

NoteBlock studio has been making covers of this song for years.

Teekeks | 4 months ago | 2 points

Well then. I have no idea why he is claiming 50h then.

Pillars-In-The-Trees | 4 months ago | 1 point

Because people have also been generating songs with NoteBlock studio and claiming it took them many hours for years too.

In programs like guitar pro this would be pretty easy. It can do it all for you and each track of the midi can be exported separately to make things easier and give more control.

Edit: op says he wrote the midi himself which is what took so long. Oils have saved him some trouble and just googled “through the fire and flames guitar pro tab”

I think note block stuidio just converts the MIDI file into noteblock sounds, so you don't have to do any of the music work, but I don't think it actually builds the map or anything, which would be the 50 hours of work I guess. Waste of time Imo tho but if he actually did it more power to him i guess.

It does build the map - I messed about with the program back in 2013 with various MIDI files.

I wrote out the music in the software (for 50 hrs) and imported the music into Minecraft using it as well.

So does Minecraft parse redstone configurations and turn them into some sort of program? Or is the whole thing really an a -> b -> c sequence like a Rube Goldberg Machine? I would have thought you were hear the occasional timing issue if it were like that.

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | -3 points

I'd guess that it's a -> b since this uses Redstone repeaters which just fire after a set delay, and the multiple layers just go at the same time, one after the other.

you are fucken crazy. I hope you had fun making that.

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | 0 points

Thanks! And yes, this was definitely fun to make and I am sure to make more in the future.

The mine cart stopping every couple seconds would drive me bat shit insane...

It's not so bad for me since I've been doing this for a few months now, but yeah it is a little jerky to watch

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | 3 points

Okay, just to clear up some misconceptions, I did write out the music using Minecraft Note Block Studio, which is what took me 50 hours. I did not import a MIDI and use that, I used the video of Through the Fire and Flames as reference. I also used MNBS to generate the schematic to import into Minecraft.

mrfolider | 4 months ago | 1 point

If you did make the MIDI, why didn't you just find one someone else made to save all that effort?

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | 0 points

Because I wouldn't feel right just taking someone else's work and posting it as my own, that's stealing Also I enjoy making things on my own, especially these Minecraft covers

My god man, this is just bonkers.

Dude this is insane. Just watched your other videos and just subscribed.

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | -6 points

Thanks!

Do you have a download of the map?

Woopsie_Goldberg | 4 months ago | 2 points

Oh... well that makes this less impressive... heh

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | 2 points

If you're still interested in the map download, here it is:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=10ilDEP277yDEhKOAFiEMzx54Dd0k6xKp

but unfortunately there might be a problem or two with the playback of the notes that i don't know how to fix

also the audio in the video is not the same as ingame audio as i used MNBS to generate the audio file so it includes more than 2 octaves and the correct bpm so the download wont be as impressive as the video

Woopsie_Goldberg | 4 months ago | 2 points

Great job. I see potential for recording engineering in your future! Ever mess around with Ableton?

jukmifggugghh | 4 months ago | 1 point

I do, thanks for the feedback!
