OCRA-0001 - Super Metroid: Relics of the Chozo

Recommended Posts

if this is a late call i'm sorry but i've found a way of how to have this Project in one large file (WAV, MP3 OGG Vorbis, eetc.)

for anyone who'd like to know how this is done, all you need is Audacity and the project in whatever format.

1. Open Audaicty

2. Open the first track of the album on one window and the second track on another window (for this example 01 - Protricity - Premonition Of Fell Purpose (Title) and 02 - Vigilante - So It Begins... (Intro Theme)

3. on the second track (mainly the second window with Track 02) click on EDIT point to SELECT and click on ALL or press CTRL+A to select all lines of that track.

4. Click EDIT again but afterwards click copy or CTRL+C.

5. on the first track (mainly the first window) paste the selection of the second track just in front of the first. that way you'll get something like a track that's about 6m:12s long but with the first two track on it.

6. then open up the third track in another window and repeat steps 3 and 4.

you should then have a very long track about 15 minutes long.

7. repeat steps 3.6 with the other tracks and you should end up with the SMProject in one non-stop file.

I have a question aimed specifically at the creators of Relics of the Chozo and more generally at people in this thread:

Would anyone object (or better yet, think it was a good idea) to uploading the MP3 version, taken from the .wav files at 320kbps, onto a torrent tracker? I have no problem doing it and was actually thinking about it, but figured I'd ask.

MY turn to post. I second the request for the .jpg/.gif files for cover art (for use in media players, specifically iTunes). I'd also like to know what's the preferred way of labelling everything before I burn a copy (I'm a nitpick). I'm currently using the Every-Word-Is-Capitalized format, as seen on file names (I put the slash back into 'Change & Passing'), the album is set as a compilation (to allow for artist names to show with the track title, as well as labelling the album artist as "Various Artists") and as a gapless album (with the burn option set to 0 seconds between tracks just in case), and the track and disc numbers are fully filled. What I'm kinda trumped on is what to label the album ("RotC", SM:RotC", "RotC-ASMMC", etc.), whether what main-site track comments there are should be included in the comment field (wouldn't hurt), and how to label composers (I might could see who did which originals).

On the note of gaplessness, anyone know if FFVII:VotL (or is it just "VotL"?) is gapless-intended?

I'd just like to call out some naysayers and bump this thread! I'd still say after all this time that this project is right up at the top of my favorite album projects from this site - and it was the first! That's a hard bar to reach. I definitely think some of the best music OCR has produced is in it, and more importantly it's by far OCR's most cohesive project in atmosphere and in continuity - really, this is OCR's only "album", where the rest are just compilations - excluding maybe Rise of the Star. I do like the ambient tracks too, just as much as the others. All of Prot's tracks on this are gold, and the others are excellent.

Check this out if you haven't. Its only weaknesses are the ambient tracks which understandably aren't some people's cup of tea (but I still feel are very necessary to atmosphere). I remember listening to this back when it came out, and I still listen to it today! In fact, I'm listening to it RIGHT NOW. Are you?

No see, what they gotta do is buy a pair of Air Asulins and learn to jump/remix and maybe sell Hanes underwear and hot dogs.

Does anyone have the album art jpegs? The links to download them are dead.

Sorry to dig up this old thread. I would have PMed Digital Coma, but he's not listed as a member anymore.

Thanks

I agree with the gainsayers here: although OCR's first album, this remains one of its best and is definitely the most cohesive

I found several places where you can find it just by searching "relics of the chozo" in a search engine's image search. Here's a couple hits: http://survey.mektek.ca/gift/chozo_cover.jpg and http://ocremix.org/album/3/super-metroid-relics-of-the-chozo (the preview pic of the album). Of course, the latter is more accurate but smaller, but if you just want it for your ipod, it's plenty big

OGG fies aren't that bad. you just need the right player. I think there's a plug-in for Winamp. If you need to switch the file format, though, BonkEnc Audio Encoder is a okay tool to use. I haven't had too many issues so far using it to switch mp3's to AAC's for my DSi. (http://download.cnet.com/BonkEnc-Audio-Encoder/3000-2140_4-10550755.html)

I've only heard bits and pieces of this album because I don't know how to use OGGs. My favorite track, out of what I scavenged from elsewhere, was Braving the Flames.

Just wanted to pop in and say that I've been listening to this album quite a bit recently at work. It's great, very atmospheric. Definitely the most cohesive and uniform album on the site. Love it.

I have no clue why I've ignored this album for so long! It has to be because of the format (which Audacity has fixed for me) and that seems like a really dumb reason. This album is all atmosphere and I love it. It's hard to believe this was the first OCR album, the quality is amazing. Just goes to show chronological snobbery is lame.

Love this thing!

Still great music, but I wonder why it's rereleased. I have it already as "Relics of the Chozo". Same titles but very slightly different file sizes

It was originally released as OGGs and WAVs. This updated release is MP3s and FLACs. The source tune names are also corrected to the official titles, the album art is embedded, and the files are tagged to be compatible with iTunes and portable music players.

That's why. :-)

Still by far the best OCReMix album ever made. I can't believe it's been over ten years. I still remember when this came out. All these artists should get together again and work on a Metroid Prime album or something.

I can only seem to find a torrent with a .rar of the WAV files and the cover art in some file format I've never seen. :-?

Edit: Nevermind. I just found the updated torrent on bt.ocremix.org . The "Download Torrent" button here http://ocremix.org/album/3/super-metroid-relics-of-the-chozo isn't updated though.

Quoting myself from almost two years ago:

 

Still by far the best OCReMix album ever made. I can't believe it's been over ten years. I still remember when this came out. All these artists should get together again and work on a Metroid Prime album or something.

 

Final Fantasy IX: Worlds Apart—the 53rd OCReMix album—was released today, and it is the only OCReMix album that has been close to rivaling Relics of the Chozo in my opinion.

 

We celebrate Relics of the Chozo's 12th anniversary in three days, and I still listen to it from time-to-time. I especially remember playing StarCraft: Brood War with this album playing in the background during LAN parties at my friends house. That was back when I didn't have a laptop so I brought my tower, keyboard, mouse and CRT monitor!

 

How times have changed! And yet, Relics of the Chozo—an emotional and ethereal journey across Zebes—is still the best OCReMix album ever made!
