    I've been trying to find any trace of a complete rip of the soundtrack to the Sonic OVA. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to exist save for a decent rip of Land of Darkness. Has anyone on the Sonic Retro community done a proper rip? Would it be possible to condone and proceed with a rip?

    I'd be extremely interested in having the soundtrack to the OVA too - I especially love the music/beat in the scene where Sonic & Tails prepare the Tornado for launch, and also the music with the owl travelling in his flying contraption (the same music during the "Hyper Metal Sonic" fight I think - and I forgot where else) :specialed:

    It's a widely known lack in community knowledge- there's no rips of the OST. The best you can find are reconstructions from the film. In fact, correct me if I'm wrong, but no OST was even released, was it?

    It might be feasible to dummy out the voices a bit, but it would probably sound like crap, especially considering the amount of time it would take to do so. It would be easier to remake the songs using the original synths and samples.

    Boy, that's a bummer. Would it be too far fetched to get any info on what synths were used for the film?

    Jack shit.
    No OST was ever released. I remember hearing that an OST was going to be made but since the OVA did poorly it was decided not to.

    This was because it was a stand-alone track that had no interruptions (voice clips, sound effects, etc.). Then again, maybe it was popular enough to get its own release.

    Look-a-like was not released. It was poorly reconstructed by fans. I'd love to have this OST though.

    I know the ADR director for the english dub, but that was back at Monster Island Studios, and that company has been burned to the ground three times now. There's no way the recordings still exist.

    I thought it was. WAVE MASTER released it on the 'True Colors' compilation (albeit a shorter version, but still official).

    I could see if my composer is willing to recreate Land of Darkness / Land of the Sky in her spare time. She often takes side requests from me since we're good at collaborating on things; We would just need a fairly accurate MIDI instrumentation first.

    South Island theme would be pretty interesting too...

    ...Why would she need a MIDI file first? Making a MIDI file IS recreating it. Unless you mean just taking a MIDI file and applying wave samples to it, which is just... amateur stuff that everyone does when they first start out.

    That said, I should theoretically have a South Island (er, that sax piece when the Owl's flying in the clouds) MIDI I did sequence/recreate years ago. Fairly complete, just never got around to adding the cymbal percussion. I'll try to remember to go diggin' around for it.

    No, there's no OST. Yes, Look Alike was released on the True Colors CD. Also there are already MIDI versions of the soundtrack that have been online for years, including the South Island theme.

    Not to sound disrespectful, but MIDI tracks don't quite add up to something as clean sounding (if you will) as a high quality recreated soundtrack or a direct (but flawed) rip from the film.

    With a proper sequencer/composition synth you can take a MIDI file, do the proper programming, and spit out something that sounds very much like a real song. It's just a preprogrammed series of notes that are interpreted by an application, in that case, the hardware of a synthesizer.

    Neither MIDI currently online is accurate anyway (South Island Theme and Land of Darkness theme) since they're missing key instruments anyway or blatantly ignore particular notes.

    But yes, this is a recurring topic throughout the years, but one where people never really get the initiative to actually do something about it, and I don't mean pander to Sega or whoever to release the soundtrack. I very much doubt the songs exist cleanly and officially at this point. Best bet is for fans, especially those good with MIDI composition and possibly something like Fruity Loops to take a crack as close to a 1:1 organization of the soudtrack.

    All I can say is that the OVA DVD release does have a generic theme from the movie in clear quality for many of the menus. But as Trunks pointed out, the company that did them has been burned down so many times that it likely doesn't exist there anymore either.

    Now that the team of musicians behind Sonic After The Sequel has finished the soundtrack, perhaps one of them would be up for attempting to do this? I'm not sure if mine has the free time to be able to tackle it herself.

    I found my own sequence of the South Island theme. I need to find an old memory card reader I should have lying around here somewhere, then I can at least get it posted online (or cleaned up a tad if need be). I'll work on doing that tomorrow.

    I don't quite remember this full version being in the film itself. Are you absolutely sure? :/
