Okay here's my complete remastered score for The Empire Strikes Back. Much like Star Wars, I used material from the Anthology set where ever I could and I remastered it making it sound clearer than before.

All files are in lossless (flac) format and some cues run into each other. So remember, select "gapless playback" in iTunes or for an iPod or "no gaps between tracks" when burning as an audio CD.

Disc One Part One

Disc One Part Two

Disc Two Part One

Disc Two Part Two

I'm confused- there are some very jarring cut-offs here that are seriously ugly and leave me wanting to hear the unmolested soundtrack. Was that your intent? I feel like I'm listening to a heavily 'edited for time' soundtrack or The Blender Strikes Back.

You need to be more specific what the fuck do you mean by "jarring cut offs"? If you mean there's a gap or whatever between some cues I told you in my original post that if you're going to burn them as audio CD's to be sure to have "no gaps between tracks" selected or if you use iTunes and an iPod that has gapless playback to select "gapless playback" when making apple lossless files as some cues run into each other. There are no "jarring cut offs" in my set.

Maybe I'm not technically savvy or something, but a lot of music abrutly ends or fades when it should conitnue? Maybe I'm wrong, entirely possible. At any rate, thanks for the ups.

No music abruptly fades when it should continue. There are no jarring cut offs at all. As I said too you'll need iTunes or if you don't use iTunes, winamp will play the files with out the gaps. Just make a playlist for each score.

Ok, so I downloaded DP's mp3 files above and I'm not experiencing any of the fucked cut-offs that I was experiencing with the FLAC's.

I can't explain it other than perhaps in the conversion process from FLAC to mp3 it was hacking the tracks for whatever reason.

Thank you, Raveers and DP! :bouncin:

Many Thanks are in order from me as well! I know it's takes a patient and meticulous person to put this music's very hard work! But it pays off when one hears how great it sounds once it comes together. Excellent job, I'm enjoying it immensely.

Ok so after listening to your version here I have to say it lacks.

I'm very familiar with this soundtrack and in a lot of cases flutes, choirs, synthesizers and such are burried and barely audible when they should be more distinct.

So as a result I don't feel like I'm getting the complete experience of this brilliant score, one that I rank as my favorite movie score of all time because certain elements that I mentioned above are subdued. I don't know if that's something you did, but my mind wants to hear things that barely register to my ear and that I know are there from having listened to this soundtrack since 1980.

So you get the heralded 'nigga please' at this attempt. :roll:
