    If you read this you are probably a stalker, but since you at least have taken the time to come to this site, I'm going tell you something.

    I'm Norwegian and live in Henry Ruudsvei, Røyse, not too far away from Hønefoss.
    My hobbies include, but are not limited to: gaming, watching films and series, listening to music, reading, hanging with friends, working out and saving the world now and then.

    My favourite artists/ bands, apart from the awesome ones here at OCR are:
    - AC/DC
    - Audioslave
    - ZZ TOP
    - Dimmu Borgir
    - Dumdum Boys
    - Huey Lewis & The News
    - Coldplay
    - Daft Punk
    - Datarock
    - Kavinsky
    - Calvin Harris

  1. Sorry, it was not my intention to make this all about the file quality, it was merely a suggestion and a question to the ones responsible for the sound I am grateful for the originality and depth that has gone into the album. "So I say Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing Thanks for all the joy they're bringing Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty What would life be? Without a song or a dance what are we? So I say thank you for the music For giving it to me"
  2. That is fine I will always convert the FLACs to 320kbps regardlessly, so if anyone is interested, I could make a dropbox account or something like that dedicated to OCR music in 320kbps Less hassle for those who are interested in that. OT: "Artefacts" is not a grammatical error, but UK as opposed to "artifacts", which is US. EDIT: Here we go: https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B6BKIJ8B-gdlckRaVlVCSTRtZDA&usp=sharing TMNT - Shellshocked in my new Google Drive which shall only contain downloads for this community
  3. 320kpbs really makes sense, especially on portable players. I do not want to waste space on theoretically superior files (FLAC) that the human ear cannot distinguish from 320kbps mp3. If the files are ripped with a high quality encoding process, they can sound as good as anything at a lower bitrate than 320 kbps. However, the mp3 files from OCR have often been of low quality. I have listened to various OCR album mp3 files and then my 320kbps files ripped from the FLAC files and seldom find an album where the quality is good enough already for all files (I am not talking about the bitrate alone, but the sound quality in general). What I am trying to do is convince OCR to be more concerned with the sound quality because music is best enjoyed when artefacts and low bitrates do not interfere with the listening experience. FLAC is a format that makes sense if you are storing it, so that you can convert it to whatever format you feel like at a later time. This is because upon converting an already converted file, you are losing quality. If one can truly hear the difference between 320kbps mp3 and FLAC, why do people keep failing in blind tests?
  4. Excellent on all levels but one: mp3 file quality. I am amazed by OCR's constant failure to deliver 320kbps mp3 files with their releases. You already have FLAC files, so why not have 320kbps ripped from them? /scratch head Anyway... Cowabunga and radical thanks and pizzas to all contributors! 320 kbps mp3 files (feel free to scan etc. if you do not trust me): https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4e94et09c0w2zh5/jA5HK-ElaR - if there are any problems with the files, feel free to nudge me
  5. Lovely remix, but what kills it is the file quality: MP3 160kbps... ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! What the shell are the OCR staff thinking with all the low bitrate MP3 files? This is the case with album releases too: the MP3 albums are low quality, so I have to manually make MP3 320kbps files from the FLAC and WAV albums... Even the newest album follows this sad trend MADNESS!!! THIS IS OCR!!! /kick high quality mp3 files down into the endless pit
  6. I beg to differ, because it's the silly European title. They always seem to think that we Europeans need something different xD And yes, I do know there's another game with the very same name. Here's the boxart if you doubt me: And here's a link to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Final_Fantasy_Adventure
  7. SUGGESTIONS FOR GAMES WORTHY OF MUSIC REMIXES: - Tetris - a must - Super Mario Land - Super Mario Land 2 - Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 - The Castlevania Adventure - Dr. Mario - Battletoads - Operation C (Contra) - Final Fantasy Adventure (aka. Mystic Quest) - The Smurfs
  8. I'm amazed by the overall solid quality of the remixes! I'm really looking forward to this! Expect a donation on the release date!
  9. COWABUNGA DUDES! I'm hyped! I'm really looking forward to this project! Good luck /hype on What kind of style will the art be? Official sprites paired with custom backgrounds? Exclusive art made by a talented member? Will you go for the gritty Mirage TMNT, 80s TMNT, CGI or modern cartoon look? I R QRIUZ!
  10. Yeah, that was one cool remix! I really think Star Base - To Where No Turtle Has Gone Before deserves a hard rock or metal cover. It screams for it! And yes, it is definitely one of the best game soundtracks ever! I've got it on my portable music player :3 There is no way to get it legally, so for once I was a pirate. I always pay for products, but if they simply can't be bought, I see no harm in me downloading.
