Sly Cooper and the Theiveious Raccoonus by froggestspirit at 6:29 PM EDT on July 4, 2018

I just ripped the Sly Cooper soundtrack to FLAC. This has no SFX or ambiance, and all variations.

I'll have a Genh version up shortly that is half the size for play in VGMstream/Droidsound-e

Holy hell, im suprised this wasnt done sooner, tbh.

I just wonder how the hell you were able to view the files on the PS2 game disc, since the files are hidden most of the time

Cool, looks like a good rip. Does the PS2 actually output 24-bit S/PDIF for sequenced audio? (Does the sequencer even output 24-bit?) I'm suspicious that the mono audio muxed with the video is actually 24-bit. Zeros have likely been appended, which is a waste of disk space.

It's a recording of the audio as the game is being played via PCSX2 (with various cheat codes to mute sound fx and other stuff). it's not a recording straight from an actual PS2 console.

The problem with this is that PCSX2's audio emulation isn't uh... isn't the greatest. PCSX2's audio output is "acceptable" quality when gaming.

Yeah, I knew it was emulator output. I'm wondering what the hardware does, which translates to what an accurate emulator should be doing (at least by default), which still leaves me suspicious about the 24-bit.

Especially since the console hardware actually outputs 16 bit audio. Although technically, you can hack the emulator to output extra precision, it's mostly useless, and totally inaudible in practice.
