I'd just like to interject at this point to ask if the person doing these rips would consider building (or getting someone to build) the GameCube S/PDIF cable in order to record these tracks? This would give the best possible recording possible and would keep the files in the digital domain without having to record an analogue signal.

This mod was discovered at the time of the release of the GameCube but to the best of my knowledge no one has ever built it. Here's the link:

Just send your modified GameCubes to me.

Seriously: I'm confident with the sound quality I've got now. Not to mention the Four Swords Adventures sound files are already ripped.
And I've already shelled out 50 bucks for a decent DVD burner, just for the sound rips. So until I win the lottery or someone sends me money, no.

Maybe we could have a collection for you then to have one made? I can't imagine it would be expensive to make - the hard part would be finding the components and someone with the skills to do the mod. Seriously, you will be recording a digital signal that has been converted to an analogue signal. The S/PDIF mod will give you the best quality possible. Seems a shame to go to all the trouble you have gone to and then not get the best possible quality. I have recorded some GameCube music myself in the past, and I know that the GameCube phono-outs do not give a perfectly clear signal. The noise could probably be eliminated by doing some post-processing in something like Cool Edit Pro, but doing this for every track would be immensley laborious.

Not only do I need the money, but people also have to send me the time and wits to mod my GameCube (even more than it's now). And I'm not taking that extra route. Not to mention it hasn't even been tested on any of the message boards that refer to this mod.

And I already noice-reduced all of the tracks, it wasn't that big of a deal and the result is fantastic (I've always been doing that when I made rips). I had to cut them in Audition in any event, so it really doesn't make a difference: Either way, the rip took a shit load of time and I'm not doing it again.

And noone will notice the difference anyway because they'll be awed at the number of tracks in there.

OK, no probs, it was just a suggestion. Any chance you can post the files in a lossless format (taken from your original WAVs)? FLAC is perfect for this. If you can't upload anywhere then maybe share on SoulSeek or DC++.

I thought about releasing both a FLAC and a VBR MP3 version.
I'm still undecided about it as even now the rip is 1 GB (as WAVs) and that doesn't include the files from Tetra's Trackers.

We'll see. If I don't release a FLAC version: I'll keep the original WAV files as backup just in case anything has to be changed. Maybe a FLAC release will show up when I feel like uploading 500+ MB of data.

FLAC (level 8 encoding) roughly compresses to 40%/50% of the original file size. Maybe torrenting the FLAC files would be a better idea, then the rest of us can share them on DC++/SoulSeek/eMule. Don't want to sound ungrateful, but I'm really abhorent to MP3s so I hope you'll consider this.
