Hey, this puppy finally got activated. Noice.
Anyway, figure I may as well chime in the goings-on personally, that way everyone's on the same page as to where I'm at on things.
In regards to the album itself:
There're several reasons for me redoing everything--first and foremost is, Qwerty (as well as a few others, but if memory serves Qwerty was the first) asked for it. Might seem like an odd reason, but the simple fact is that I adore CT and want to see this project to its maximum, and if I can contribute to that end I'll be damned if I pass such a chance up.
The second is that I really just don't like how the old ones sound. I've been going through and reworking pretty much all my past full-OST arrange albums to sound better. CT was bound to happen eventually anyway, so this project just kickstarted it happening sooner rather than later.
In addition, it unfortunately happens that a large portion of the original project files have been lost--whether by a complete drive failure about a year or so ago, or by personal negligence or file corruption/deletion, I can't say for certain. What this essentially means is that these lost files will have to be rebuilt from the ground up, as opposed to simply making some alterations and adjustments to the project files still intact. If there becomes a significant gap in track progress, that's why.
In regards to the multiple folks asking for the files:
I don't particularly mind multiple inquiries, but the simple fact of the matter is that it's more people to keep track of and updated as to progress, and that part's a bit of a headache. Doubly so when every individual person has their own formatting preferences. I don't think I have to elaborate on the workload of mixing and formatting and looping the same sixty-five tracks in different ways several times over.
So to that end, I'm essentially gonna just mime Qwerty here and kind of just lay down the law--I'll be doing this reworking exclusively for him from here out. This decision is partly due to the above level of work and scrambling to make sure everyone's kept in the loop and satisfied, but more importantly because Qwerty's been the only one that's kept in consistent and prompt contact, and I respect that level of professional courtesy (not to intend sour remarks towards any of the others, it's just that he's been the only one to get back to me punctually whereas the others often go days or more to answer--I get everyone's got their own busy lives and schedules, but so do I, and it's reaching the point where I simply don't have the free time to wait around for responses anymore, so I have to make less-than-pleasant decisions like this). Apologies if this rubs anyone the wrong way, but I've gotta do what I've gotta do with my schedule becoming what it is.
In regards to the tracks themselves:
As Qwerty's mentioned and shown, everything's now a really nice-quality FLAC, each with their own sweet, sweet spectros.
I'll post the progress of the album on a per-track basis here on this post, and update it when more are completed--this way, there's no doubts as to progress and wait times on my end.
