EDIT - If you're interested in what I've posted so far.. just go to http://nix1999.shackspace.com/audio and click on what you'd like. I'll try to post more later on as people request.
Okay, maybe it's not new but... have a listen.
Those with garden-variety external speakers might not be able to hear what the big deal is about, therefore, headphones might be the best to hear this with... Before you say anything though, listen to it in it's entirety.
A project I've started a while back has come true in a way I'd never thought possible. A while back, some of you might remember a really bad attempt I made to clean up the audio from Freespace 1. Well, after just hitting my head against the wall, I thought I'd just try asking Dan Wentz over at Volition for the original uncompressed music masters. Well, to my amazement he replied, and after a summers worth of searching, he's found most of the music for Freespace 1 and 2 in high-resolution uncompressed WAV files.
Additional interesting happenings are in the works, but have yet to be finalized. Till then, here's something to look forward to.
In my spare time, I'm going to try to create a VP for the FSPort, and FS2 containing newer, higher resolution audio for as much of the in-game music as possible. This includes interface/briefing/debriefing/ingame music. Since so many people have shown such great improvements to things like graphics and models, I've always felt that the music could be better. Now it can be. I aim to provide another piece to making Freespace 1/2 as best as it can be, while preserving what I feel to be some of the best music composed in the gaming world.
Questions/comments/discuss at will!
