I am contacting Capcom to point out that a piece of music from "Breath of Fire IV" was potentially plagiarized by the company know as "X-Seed" in their 2005 RPG "Shadow Hearts: From the New World". Here are my findings:
The track titled "Mauve" from the "Shadow Hearts: FTNW" soundtrack (disc 2 track 6) contains a melody that originated in the game Breath of Fire IV. The melody is actually the sound that the "wind flute" makes.
To refresh your memory on what the "wind flute" sounds like, I provided a useful link below. The melody can be heard starting at about 0:06 in this youtube video:
I have also provided a link below that contains the track "Mauve" from the "Shadow Hearts: FTNW" soundtrack. The same "wind flute" melody can be heard starting at about 0:55 in this video.
As you can see the "wind flute" melody was used by X-Seed in this track! Even more disturbing is the fact that the melody comprises a SIGNIFICANT layer of the track.
When I noticed this I immediately realized the music had been copied and perhaps even plagiarized illegally.
I am planning on posting this information on some public forums, but I decided it was best to inform the copyright holder first.
I kindly request that I be kept informed if this information does become useful to Capcom.
