ZOOM H2’s last job (Tari Tari ED 2 – Kokoro no Senritsu)

Sawa is the best girl

Finally found some time to upload my transcription of Kokoro no Senritsu, I finished the sheet weeks ago and couldn’t find some time to upload it on youtube. But now, the job is done.

Kokoro no Senritsu is a really beautiful insert song (and also used as ED in episode 2 of Tari Tari), which I instantly fell in love with. I decided to play it slightly slower than the original, because it sounds more peacefully and relaxed. And the best of all, it’s fairly easy to play. This is one instance where the less is more principle is particularly applicable.

Aside from that, this is also an official “goodbye” to my good ol’ ZOOM H2 Handy Recorder. (the one I’ve been using since the Magia transcription)

Just a few days ago, I finally gathered enough money to buy a better microphone!

And guess who made it possible.

It was you.

You awesome people.

I have recieved a total amount of 340 € worth of donation, and with my own 100€ I’m adding in, it’s enough money to buy my long-awaited Rode NT5 matched pair micophone!

It’s… like a dream came true.

Th-thank you .. so much… everyone

You are the reason why I still have faith in humanity.

Thank you,

thank you for your support! ;___;

(*cough* if you still want to support my works, errm.. donation is still open ^^)

Help me to get a better mic!

You know, I really really really want to have a better microphone.

Every time I read comments like “it would be awesome if I can hear you live, so I don’t have to deal with the bad audio quality in your video” or “dude, ur mic is a shit but nice skillz XD” I feel so powerless and helpless.

Because I desperately want to have a better audio recording too! I mean, it verges on the ridiculous if I record a Steinway grand piano with a tiny ZOOM H2 Handy recorder (which is smaller than an iphone)

You can’t imagine how amazing the Steinway sounds if you would listen to it live. But without a professional or at least a reasonably decent recording device, it’s just impossible.

This is why I am asking you fellow readers:

If you have any spare money left

or

want to support my transcriptions and my Youtube channel,

then

please donate, so I can enhance the audio experience on my Youtube channel in the future.

I really appreciate your support. Every cent helps. Really.

(assuming every 11.100 subscriber of my channel would even donate miserly 10 pennies, I could get the best microphone possible, including an usb audio interface.)

When I’ve finally gained enough donation to afford a good microphone, I will love you forever, every single one of you, who have donated. Seriously. ;_;

And when the time has come, I’ll rerecord everything I’ve transcribed so far and will upload a music album especially for you to download.

Thank you so much in advance! m(_ _)m

Special update: Guest transcription by Castlevaniapro93 (AKB0048 ED – Yume wa Nandomo Umarekawaru)

Oh well, since I’ve uploaded the AKB0048 Opening, I might upload the piano cover of the ending as well. But this time, the sheet is not done by me, it’s done by Castlevaniapro93.

Here is the link to his website: http://www.castlevaniapro93.webs.com/

He have contacted me via e-mail some months ago and after countless skype chat’s I’ve found out he is also watching the most current anime shows, he ALSO makes anime music sheets for the piano, he ALSO have very high demands to himself in order to deliver the highest quality piano sheets possible – AND he is also german. Awesome.

I’ve only made some minor edits (since he is also using Sibelius as notation software, I could edit the sheet very quickly) because some of the passages are too hard/impossible to play. Nevertheless: I really appreciate his effort for making those amazing sheets.

Also, thank you, for voting whether I should use the e-piano or the grand piano – and you have decided!

It was a close decision, but eventually, more people prefered the grand piano (with inferior recording device) over the E-piano.

One day I’ll get a better mic…. maybe through donations…?

… well, only time could tell.

Alright, see you in two weeks again, where the summer anime season will finally begin!
