The BGMs of La-mulana are earning good reputation. We have a plan to release the sound track, but its form is not sure yet.
We are worrying about how to make the form.
We place a software which substitutes the sound track in the game.
So,you can use your Will as a sound track if you get the software.
You can also record it and edit it by yourself, and make a sound track which is able to play on your computer.
Now, some people upload those music and movies. So what is the significance for us to release the sound track?
There is no meaning unless we provide something official, for example good sound quality or bonuses.
So, it has been a long time though, we’d like to have a questionnaire.
We did same thing in the past. That time was also a questionnaire about music.
This time, we wanna ask you about the sound track specification, namely,
how to form it.
 Loop count
The music software in the game is about 1 and half loop, otherwise I do fade out when it comes to the point.
But, I heard that people who like game music want 2 loops. That’s understandable, but the size is gonna be too big because of the number of songs.
 Sound quality
We are handmade game company, so recording stuff is also handmade.
The only way we can do is exactly same as a standard home, connecting PC to Wii directly, and record it.
We’ll reduce some noise by our means and business applications, but there is not big quality difference between official one and recorded one by yourself.
However, there is the only way to provide high quality music.
If I record music from the software which I used to create BGMs, I can record it with very few noise.
But, note it’s a bit different from the sound on Wii, just slightly though.
Anyway, depending on encoding at 128 or 192, the quality is gonna change.
We’d like to know which is better for you to make the music same as
Wii or as high quality even if it’s slightly different.
 How about bonuses?
We will upload onto common services like iTunes, because most people basically play the music on PC.
Then, is it necessary to put tags on MP3 files? (Won’t you wanna get M4A files, will you?)
or necessary to set a cover picture if it’s iTunes?
We’d like to know that sort of additional things except the music file itself.
Besides, would you wanna get liner notes or a music explanatory booklet?
Please give us your idea for above 3 items by leaving a comment on this article.
Gathering from the comments, we’ll find out the best form.
