I wouldn't recommend it, because those remixes were intended to invoke a different feel, a "return to Kanto" kind of feel as opposed to "welcome to the brand new Kanto region". Also that's not in the original key - the HGSS Kanto battle theme was already in the original key (B minor). What you did w...

Got'cha, I wasn't 100% sure what sounds were/weren't in their original key. I remember that comment you made about Gold Silver being about 3 octaves higher than Red/Blue. That's the approach.
Chaos Rush
Three octaves? That's insane! I probably said one octave, which is true. Lemme explain octaves - a note in a different octave is the same note, just at a higher pitch. Like you ever notice how on a piano keyboard there's seven white keys and five black keys and they repeat? An octave is when you pla...

Ah got'cha.I may've confused it with semi-tones like the way Audacity. I like the BW/HGSS sound styles. But, I also want to have songs in their original pitch like RBY.
Chaos Rush
Here's something I'm curious about what it would sound like: take the HG/SS Kanto Gym Leader theme, open it up in Audacity. Go to Effects-->Change Pitch. On the dropdown menus, do "From A#/Bb", (o) Up, "To D#/Eb"

I like the BW/HGSS sound style too, but I don't think the HG/SS remixes are suitable for an actual Kanto remake (well maybe you could get away with some like I did in my old hack, but the HGSS Kanto battle theme is definitely not suitable for a proper Kanto adventure IMO). You could try asking aroun...

If you're ever not sure of if a remix is in a different key (not that there's anything wrong with doing so), feel free to ask either me or giradialkia. Both he and I have perfect pitch (which means being able to identify the pitch of a note by hearing it).

I have nothing further to add, holler at me/either of us should the situation arise! Smile

Using HGSS Music isn't necessarily bad or good, but in this case HGSS Kanto Music kinda says "Welcome back!", while the original says "Welcome to the Pokemon World!". And yeah, as Chaos Rush said above, the music is at the wrong pitch, and the original pitch what it was before you changed it.
El Diabeetus
Sounds like a good plan. Yeah, I'd like to properly edit HG/SS and BW styles but with the original versions as a base. I normally can tell how off the pitch is with something (but have no real terminology knowledge, was never taught that), but sometimes Pokémon music is off when I try looking at it....
