Ainaveltsac Medley (Castlevania DJ Mix, restarted on Feb 1, 2012)
 
These songs are the combinations of Castlevania songs.
Download them here:

The 'Ainaveltsac Medley' album was restarted on Feb 1, 2012 made for the 25th anniversary of Castlevania.
(I tried to post this into the Castlevania Anti-Chapel, but I could not post anything in that forum, even though I had logged in.)

I have a suggestion. Upload a higher Bitrate MP3. Nobody's gonna take a 48kbit MP3 seriously and it sounds like shit. >.>

I reject your suggestion. The quality of most video game soundtracks are low, so 48kbps quality is almost lossless (except the beat). Setting to a low quality will make the file more compact. If I set the song to a high bit rate, certainly it will exceed 50MB (maximum upload size in SkyDrive) and the quality of soundtrack won't be changed.
Tell me if there are any Castlevania songs that can be attached into the beat.

nono, I agree... 48kbps is horrid.

If anything, I'd want a >192kbps MP3.

I've explained before. The quality of video game music is low. I think you (Reaper man & Richter X) didn't listen to the entire song before criticizing.
Just download the original soundtrack (from Chapel of Resonance) and listen. The quality is low, just like the mixed song, although the bit rate is high.
The main thing is whether it is good.

Yeah, if I could post this song there (the Anti-Chapel), probably I wouldn't post it here!

Well I don't know about them, but I certainly didn't (I did make it nearly halfway, but now my head hurts). 43 minutes in one chunk? Perhaps if you broke it up into more manageable pieces, you could encode at a higher bitrate and get more people to actually listen to it all.

I haven't done this because I honestly have no clue what I'm even looking for. What was this even based on? I don't play many Castlevania games so none of it sounds especially familiar and I'm not listening through the entire NES collection.

Without having anything to compare it to, it's hard to say. 43 minutes is way too long though (try to split it into parts of 15 minutes at most) and even without Shizuku's badass-quality 2.1 speakers (I'm on Chihiro's crappy-quality 2.0 speakers) it still sounds muffled and awful to my ears.

You say the beat is the only part affected, but I don't buy that. No matter how 'low-quality' you think the original is, a 48Kbps MP3 is incapable of reproducing anything with any serious degree of faithfulness, even an old NES soundtrack. So if you want to prove your point, try a five minute sample from the start of the first track at 192Kbps so we can actually hear what that sounds like. I know for sure that won't go above 50MB.

But it seems that no one like them. Well, I am only 14, so I do not have enough skills. I thought it was easy to let everyone like what I posted.
My dream to let everybody know those remixes is almost ended.



My main criticisms were about the encode and your choice to post a 43 minute song (do bear in mind that the average human attention span only stretches to about 20 minutes), the remix itself was not terrible and a decent first attempt. Not only that, but the peeps at OCRemix seem to be giving you exactly the sort of constructive criticism you need at this point.

If you like doing this, then keep doing it. Take some of these suggestions on board and try to improve your work.

The album was restarted on February 1, 2012.
It is also located in Mr. P's Castlevania Realm (http://www.vgmuseum.com/mrp/multi/mp3s2.htm#tduyduc).
