Author Notes

07/14/2019 Update:
-Changed artist to Hikaru Utada as most English speakers tend to organize her name by first name first.
 
-Minor vocal animation fixes along with updates to PS3 and Wii version.
Phase Shift version has yet to be updated, though since PS lack vocal support, nothing should be changed.
 
-Better lip syncing, dry vox has been re-recorded.
 
-The Japanese version of Sanctuary, "Passion", is finally in the database. Plans on "Simple and Clean / Hikari" files is under it's way as I'm in the middle of charting the song however "Don't Think Twice / Chikai" is currently under consideration, but no production as been made for it yet. If anyone is working on the chart, I don't mind. You should be able to find Passion on a separate page.
 
-Passion also has a seperate dry vox to Sanctuary for a more accurate lip sync.
 
-Video preview removed. Not matter what I did, it still blocked worldwide making it unviewable anywhere.

Wii and PS3 versions are now available for download.

2nd Update: ghostbyob has updated the Easy-Hard difficulties.
 
UPDATE: Bass chart has been slightly altered. Thanks to Nettacki for giving me a more accurate representation of the bass notes!
 
The video currently shows what the chart looks like BEFORE the Bass chart change. It is not 100% accurate to the updated version.
 
An updated video will be released eventually.
Pro Drums and Pro Keyboard not viewable due to the lack of instruments I own. They are however in the charting.
 
This song includes full animation, lip sync and manual reductions for all instruments.

Just barely a minute into the video and I can already see charting mistakes on the bass chart during the hooks. Hopefully that gets fixed somehow. Also kinda weird how you decided to add the hi-hat notes on the drum chart to the last verse despite the fact that said notes are either barely audible or not audible at all, and thus is virtually identical to similar previous parts.

I'm not sure what you mean by bass chart on the hooks having mistakes. I feel the information is not specific enough for me to pinpoint the mistake.

 

The hi-hat notes I will admit are very hard to hear at least without headphones. However when going through the song, I heard hi-hats at the outro, but not anywhere else in the song. But I see how people can get confused with the hi-hat notes.

Have you thought of doing 'Simple and Clean'? If so, I have a complete vocal chart I made that I could send you. :) I was going to do full band, but I gave up because of audio issues.

I've done drums and bass but not vocals. I was originally collaborating with BattlePenguin but I guess since neither one of us were working on it for a while, it's just sitting on my hard drive. We don't have the vocal chart so I'd be happy to salvage it!

Just listen to the song again and watch what you've charted and you might pinpoint it better than I can explain it. But nonetheless I'll try my best to explain it.

 

what you charted as red-red-green-red should've been more like the blue-blue-orange-blue-orange part. so more like red-red-yellow-red-yellow instead.

Did you see how the bass was charted on the Rocksmith custom? If not, you should probably check out that one because that one follows the song more than what you charted (albeit still not perfectly).

 

If you haven't seen it, here's a youtube video of someone playing it:

I sent you a PM with a Google Drive download link.

I see. Alright, I'll update the Bass to fit in to the Rocksmith's charting.

I'm not gonna repeat this: read the etiquette on how to comment. Failure to do so will result in a suspension.

after playing thru the bass chart, I'm starting to like it more than the initial version. I appreciate the effort you put into making this full band custom. However, I still think the bass chart has a few unnecessary notes charted, mostly the green and yellow notes in the hook. if those notes were removed and replaced with red and blue sustains, that would be even better. 

 

Thanks again for taking my criticism/suggestions into account.

I need true emotions backwards is mispelled :P.   Theres also some harmony opportunities missing.  Example: 1:09   Melt away definitely has at least one other vocal going on as well.  I'll have to look into it further. I'll play test as soon as i can. Glad to see some love for this.

Congratulations on having links to all platforms.

Thanks for updating.

Hikaru Utada's name crediting is a mess because she's been known by Hikaru Utada, Utada Hikaru, and just Utada, but for simple game sorting purposes it's probably best to just pick one and stick with it. I'm fine with your logical here, even if I have been more accustomed to calling her Utada Hikaru due to seeing her name written that way a lot and not knowing which her first and last names were.
