The indirect answer and mention of publishers sometimes supplying their own tracks leads me to believe it's the same shit soup we've been fed before. Konami gonna Konami.

I'm hoping the TMNT OSTs will be good. Audi Sorlie seemed pretty excited about them, and it sounds like he was hands-on with those. I pre-ordered the CDs of 1 and 2.

I'm just kinda baffled that some of these Castlevania OSTs haven't been redone, and that newer stuff also appears to be done poorly. I have cash and found a way to get the Dracula Black/Red box sets at a decent price, but I don't think I wanna bite because I heard the previously unreleased soundtracks like Dracula X SNES and Legends were done with a bit o' the ol' jank, either sounding bad or the tracks being presented out of order or something, coupled with (I think) CV3 Famicom still having sound effects and crud like that. It just sounds sloppy and I don't know if I wanna part with money for unprofessionalism. But I dunno, whaddya think of it, Sindra? I'm always looking for an excuse to waste money lol.

Edit - Totally missed this part from the above tweets: "We are using the files that we were provided by Konami. In some cases, tracks were missing from what they sent, and in those cases, we captured the tracks ourselves from hardware."

So like...yeah. TMNT may be affected too. But I don't think those had soundtrack releases before.

I asked a similar question of LRG regarding how they source their stuff (as opposed to, say, Mondo....who we know used a CD-rip for at least their CV1 vinyl release). Here's what they said:

When we are given the responsibility or opportunity to source the music ourselves, it is always done direct from hardware; in many cases, though, the publishers will supply their own tracks and we are required to use those.

I've become less and less impressed by LRG in large part because they LOVE to do their "limited" bundled physical releases with a bunch of crap meant to help pad their "Ultimate Editions" that they sell for big bucks. They won't sell individual parts of bundles piecemeal, and they've a history of capitalizing on FOMO to help push sales. Thus, your only hope of getting some items outside of bundles is through likely scalpers on ebay.

I am interested in the vinyl OST releases, though I've also heard word there is to be a better alternative for those on its way in the future to hold out for.

Very, very interesting and very well done. Love the music and the palette choices.

I'm working on a project i need assets for.
Is there maybe someplace i can find fan made assets in a more convenient location?
I wouldn't mind getting some help with it either way.
I canned my old CV project and i'm working on something more level based.
It used to be easy to find fans wanting to contribute tilesets and such to fan projects.
If i have to, i'll start a thread showing what i've got so far.
Looking for custom assets that are detailed like 16 bit.. anything like the SNES or PS1 or DS CV games..

The GBA OSTs sound really noisy. Staticky, muffled, that sort of thing. Fan rips sound a lot more clear. I get the feeling Konami simply gave LRG the CD master files and called it a day.

Better recording quality, or will it be the same old botched Konami masters we love to hate?

Just asking because I don't know:  What was botched with the previous releases?  I've collected most of the official soundtrack CDs, but now that I think about it, I've left most of them sealed and just downloaded the music to burn my own CDs.
