Well I did also mention the new CVBR setting that can surpass both VBR V0 and CBR 320 though.
FYI, the Sonic Colors soundtrack had the same kind of sparkle effect.
I'm quite normal, just thought you guys were talking about music quality.
They were really trying to make lightning strike twice wern't they? right down to the album cover sparkle effect copying Colors -_-;.
So to sum it up once and for all:
1. Get this patched latest LAME.
2. "-V0 --cvbr 0 -q 0".
3. Run the files through MP3packer with the -z switch.
That's the BEST you can EVER get from MP3 now. If you don't care that much, the good old VBR V0 is enough.
Either way just ditch CBR 320.
This is all very well and good, but quite frankly you're attempting to get blood from a stone. Why is it that the people who whine and bitch the most about not getting lossless are the ones most likely to never drop money down on an album themselves?
I do not rip albums for archival purposes. I do it solely for casual listening, or as a "try before you buy" for some people here. If you want lossless, buy the album and do it yourself or kindly stop bitching that you're not getting the format you want.
I feel like the sparkle effect would have looked nicer on the Colors album than this one, or at least made more sense. But who am I kidding, we all know this game is just Sonic Colors 2: Mario edition
Updated the album art and made those fixes I mentioned I would (also fixed the outlines around the font to be less rounded). Enjoy
You keep misunderstanding. You're free to do whatever you want, heck, even scratch your discs before ripping. I'm much more interested in correcting your misinformation than "getting the format I want".
I wouldn't mind if you just call me a smartass instead or something. I've finished my purpose.
Are you trolling? You have to be trolling. (Emphasis mine)
edit: So that this post is less blatantly obtuse, I really couldn't care less what you rip at. I don't even have a digital copy of any sort while I wait for my package to arrive. Your posts, on the other hand, simply imply you didn't even read the content of our posts, which literally have nothing to do with a lossless rip and more of simply telling you why, from a theoretical standpoint, 320kbps is outdated, both from a quality perspective (which, fair enough, may not interest you) and a filesize perspective (which, if you are a normal human being, should interest you)
You don't want to re-rip the album. Totally fine. (Again keep in mind I really don't care either way) However I'm not exactly sure what kind of point you're trying to prove by turning around from completely missing the point via selective reading to outright being baselessly offensive.
Ashram, the way you do choose to do things is wrong and I couldn't be more offended. How dare you.
Seriously the time it would take him to re-do his rip, which he isn't doing, would take more time than the miniscule additional time it would take to download the current rip. If you've got bandwidth limits or something, well, that sucks.
OK, I think that's enough bitching about the OST rip. If you want lossless, go buy the damn CD. =P
In fact, the Sonic font is Futura Extra Bold modified. You can see on some early american box art they have used the base font instead of the modified one.
