Over at our our forums we were pleasantly surprised when MysteryDev posted this thread regarding the 'real' System Shock 2 soundtrack. How real? Well, according to MysteryDev's words, 'real as in ripped from a CD that Eric Brosius burned'.
A few more details regarding this soundtrack:
- These are the real arrangements created by Eric himself, authored as full soundtrack songs and burned as an album. It's not a fan interpretation or anything else short of the real songs from the real composer.
- This was personally crafted by Eric Brosius from the original audio, meaning that unlike the 22khz audio files from the shipping game this release is CD quality.
- The audio quality is much higher than what's out there; this was ripped from the original CD and encoded at 320 q0 mp3
Basically, this is not only the best quality version of the soundtrack, it's the version of the soundtrack that Eric Brosius himself created. It's not a fan compilation; this is the real deal.
