Other than being an aspiring but crap vega player, I’m also an electronic musician… so I decided to put the two together and program .wav files of the exact rhythms for vega’s one frame links. I thought other new players could benefit from this as well, so I thought I’d post one of the .wavs and also the technique that I use to make the file.
Here’s the first wav - it’s the rhythm used for Vega’s c.LP x 4. The same rhythm is used for linking anything else after a c.LP - i.e. c.MP.
edit: these don’t work very well in VLC Media Player. Try another media player.
This is more than just a simple metronome, this is frame exact timing. If you already know the timing, go listen and try it for yourself. I promise it’s accurate. For those of you who are musically and technically inclined, the way I did it is below - if you don’t understand, it’s fine… I can make combo files like these for you if you’d like.
The way I did it is as follows - open a music program with a step sequencer (I use FL Studio), set the beats per minute to 600, set the beats per measure to 10, and the individual steps (i.e. possible clicks) per beat to 6.
6 steps per beat at 10 beats a measure is 60 steps a measure. At exactly 600 beats per minute, this times out to 60 steps per every second of music. Set the sequencer to only play one measure at a time and then stop, and voila - you have a step sequencer running at 60 fps.
Then you go into the frame data and find your links. c.LP for example has 4 frame of startup, 2 frames of active, and 8 frames of recovery. Being a light move, it also has 8 frames of impact freeze when it hits. You can find more about Impact Freeze on Maj’s guide… lights have 8, mediums have 10, hards have 12.
So put a note on step one, skip 3 frame steps for the remainder of startup, 2 more for active, 8 more for recovery, and 8 more for impact freeze, and then put another step down on the step sequencer. Record it… and you have a frame-exact measurement of the timing for your links.
Hope this helps, guys - let me know if you need any combo .wavs made.
I know it’s totally possible to learn combos without this, but being musically inclined, this is the path I took, and it’s working out well.
