Alright, update #2.

First off, I'm glad to see there is some interest for this, it makes all this work worth it knowing I'm doing something people want. I would ask that you please spread the word about this, so all MaSu fans can enjoy it.

Second, I think, assuming my limited tech know how is correct, that anyone with a 4th gen iPhone or iPad can just use the original file instead of a converted one, since the 4Gs support 1280x720 already. Fortunately, I have an iPad, so I can test this. The version for 3rd gen and back came out to 846 MB, by the way.

Third: I finished the album art today, and it was a bitch. Mostly from cutting out the Assembly logo from a screen from the video in Photoshop. I wanted it to be perfect. I used the 2560x1600 wallpaper that has the version of the MaSu logo from the video (http://machinaesupremacy.com/wp-content/wallpapers/masu-scratch-logo-2560x1600.jpg) as the base, and even bought the actual font from the Redeemer cover (Microgramma) off of Linotype. Here is a link to it: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37844107/ASM%202011%20art%20%28final%29.tif

Fourth: I decided, after reading a couple of your comments on Apple Lossless, to go with MP3. I converted the first song (The Great Gianna Sisters) using  one of the default templates in Soundforge Pro 10. The properties I set it to convert to were as follows, 192 Kbps, 48,000 Hz, 16 Bit, Stereo. I synced it up with video using Vegas, and didn't notice any lost in quality. I also posted it on Dropbox so that you guys can hear it for yourself and tell me if I need to make an changes: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37844107/Gianna.mp3.  Once I hear from you guys, I'll make any necessary changes, and then convert and upload the whole thing to TPB, along with the video.

I'm getting 404's on those dropbox links.
Your approval fills me with shame.

Also dude, you're now converting lossy to lossy. That's even worse. Try using something like FLAC level 8, with the best compression. That'll leave you with the smallest, best quality file. Even though the file won't have most of the audio data that most FLACs have because it's not a true lossless file, converting lossy to lossless will minimize artifacts and sounds as good as the original video.

EDIT: Typo'd "LFAC." lol.

OK, let's try this:
Artwork: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37844107/Photos/ASM%202011%20art%20%28final%29.tif
Music: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37844107/Music/Gianna.mp3

Yeah, it's fine. I'm not really going to complain about audio quality, because it wasn't particularly brilliant to start with. I'd happily put a copy of that on my iPod. Thanks for the work you're doing. :D

You're welcome ;D. I just thought I'd save everyone some trouble doing it themselves.
And if it really makes that much of a difference, I'll do it in FLAC. But then you would have to unpack it yourself, right? FLAC can't be played on an iPod as is. At least that's what I have always thought. I want there to be as little work on your end as possible.

Alright, did some tests, going to go ahead and use FLAC. Right now I'm up to Bouff, converting one song at a time in Vegas, after trimming down the video. After all these are done, I'm going to go in with dbPoweramp and put in the ID3 tags, and then fix those up in iTunes, and then post them up.

Edit: realized I was rendering out the whole project each time, instead of just the section I want, so I may not get this done tonight, because I'm going to have to do something much more tedious now.

IT. IS. DONE!!!!

Well, at least all the converting is done, I still have ID3 tags and album art to add. Those will be done tomorrow. But in the meantime, here is a little taste of the epicness: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/37844107/Music/12%20-%20Indiscriminate%20Murder%20is%20Counter-Productive.flac
(Play it with VLC, it should work)

Not to make your life harder, but if you have the software, could you not just run all the FLAC files through a converter and pack them in the final distributable as well as the FLAC? I'm assuming you're torrenting this, so size is less of an issue than it would be in a traditional server standpoint.
Your approval fills me with shame.

It's a sad note that it took me this long to notice, but Rob *IS* wearing a Star Wreck shirt!

Rob has just gotten a little more awesome.

I have the lossless 24 bit 48 khz file of the whole event, re-edited and remastered. Like in the video, but in best quality. I can upload that if Robert agrees, so ask him guys.

Could you please explain this more? I don't really understand what you are asking me to do.
