The sound of a ps3 starting up is an orchestra warming up.
What's your favorite console start up sound?
Also, what's your favorite classical piece?
not to sound like a FAGGOT but I really love the sound of turning on the Wii and hearing that lovely weird music fill the room
fav ever is Beethoven's moonlight sonata mvt 3. that shit still blows me away after all these years
I like upbeat startups more
>tfw I have the launch pal ps2 model and it works perfectly to this day
I own 90+ PS2 games plus dozens that I just borrowed and rented and never experienced any problem with it.
there are three versions of the startup for the gamecube. The standard, one where you hold Z(rubber/squeaky one) and a second hidden one you can access by holding Z on 4 controllers at once(it's the sound of two wooden blocks being hit against each other)
>Pachelbel's Canon in D
Thanks for the pleb tastes, bro
>mfw you could change the start-up tune on the GameCube by pressing 'Z' on one or four controllers
Fucking blew my mind, lads.
> Shit hits the fan: the track:
> Muh stolen theme:
> Muh Touhou:
I actually really like the Xbox One start up
Not technically classical, but Chopin is best pahn. https://youtu.be/fBA-38mzabs
If you're going to hold me to classical: https://youtu.be/79gzdskOGu4
>canon in d is for plebs
You're the pleb here, friendo. What do you consider Patrician, then?
>fucking with me
Is this a game to you, motherfucker?
I love Chopin, too.
Either the Gameboy Advance or the PS2 one.

>searched on youtube for Chopin's Revolutionary Etude.
>mfw top comments say they know this track from games
I don't blame the song for it, but I'm tired of hearing it because I've heard it in every song. Plus, while there are certainly exceptions, most baroque music is too crude and basic for refined gentlemen.
Playstation 1 boot up, followed up by the Konami jingle for Metal gear solid.
PS1 is really awesome, but I gotta go with:
As for classical piece
it's actually baroque:
The conductor is reading (or has memorized) the entire score, so you look to him for tempo changes, dynamics, and for cues as to when to start do you don't have to count like 57 measures of rests.
Gamecube was the most fun for me when I was smaller. I don't really pay attention to console start-ups sounds nowadays.
Claire de Lune
I swear there was SOMETHING I liked more but it's been too long and I'm not on my main computer so I can't scrounge around for it.
rhythm, you moron
conductor is mainly there to keep them all in one rhythm and so that all pieces stay in sync
I do, I just felt like Gymnopedie is used a bit too often, and I don't like the Gnossiennes as much as I like them.
Je te veux is still my favorite composition from him, though.
Not console but i love this,
Hard to pick one but i'll say this one.
I swear I hear it at least once a month from some random show. I'll be doing whatever it is I'm up to and suddenly pick up on it from the TV and go 'Is that... it totally is.'
At a glance, Terminator, Hugo, Warehouse 13, True Blood, 90210, Royal Tenenbaums, X-files, Star-trek... and I swear it's in a lot more tv series too as just some random thing they use for a sad moment.
PS2 boot up is GOAT
Vivaldi - The Four Seasons - Summer RV315 - Mov. 2-3/3
Those strings acting as a sign of the approaching summer storm and the actual crescendo is fucking 10/10.
PS1's startup will always be the GOAT
Provide a better example of a startup sequence.
It doesn't exist.
PS2 is second-best
I'm not all that fond of classical
Bach is baroque, but nobody is really being a stickler about nailing down the period anyway. Nigger made some cool music, that's for sure.
You don't have to like the whole genre to have a favorite classical (or non-classical orchestral or symphonic) song.
I mean, I don't think that I like any of the classical songs I know enough to pick a favorite.
They're all pretty much the same level of enjoyable to me.
Does an orchestrated track from a game count?
BLOG POST: the first movement is the only part I still have memorized, and it stings a little knowing there was a point in my life where I could play 2, 3
and FPSswithout issue.
The Wii homebrew menu ...
It's weird hearing it now. Brings me back to a time and a place that no longer exists. It's been 7 years. Still miss you Vince.
Never thought I'd nostalgia this soon:
Gamecube startup of course.
Probably bland but I just love Verdi's Dies Irae Requiem. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_jBLyIQvNf0
I saw it performed once and was completely polarized. The entire room shook with it. I think that experience is why its my favorite.
Probably the PS3, PS2, or Gamecube. It's hard for me to decide.
Imagine if one console system had something like this for a start up sound: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhAXIjJ56xE
To this day, the jingle triggers something deep inside. I can't describe. Must be all the Turtles in Time I played as a kid. You used to hear and you'd KNOW you were in for a good time.
Why is it that it would be impossible to have this discussion on /mu/ but we're having a nice talk here? Same with any content relegated to any other board. /v/ always seems like the place to have a good discussion about anything but video games.
>Dude composed cannon fire into his music.
It was pretty stupid of him to do that as firing a cannons precisely to match the tempo of the composition was impossible in his times and even now is a big undertaking.
Cant choose between the PS2 or the Xbox. I guess PS2 because I dont like the intro of the xbox but rather the menu and I dont even own one.
I'm not sure but everybody knows this is the secret SFW(kek) offtopic board.
I've been put on to so much on /v/ but with video games I would have been lost or only recommended garbage. People unironically like the mass effect series for example.
Wasn't it just supposed to be a loud crashing noise, actually? Like in his composition it was just like "nondescript really fucking loud sound right this second". Or am I thinking of a different composer? I remember seeing a performance of it and they just used a giant mallet on wood.
