This release is exclusive to the Laced Records online store and features brand new original artwork by illustrator ultimatemaverickx. The boxset can be pre-odered here if you live in Europe and from here if you live in the United States.
I just don't understand this Vinyl thing...ReplyDelete
Aren't CD's/BluRays/MP3's like way higher quality?
Whatever makes em happy I guess.
Nope. Audio quality isn't lost on vinyl. You're hearing THE actual songDelete
Hmm. Guess I'm just too used to seeing/hearing static on records.Delete
I've never had a working record player.
Seeing in the movies, of course.Delete
Depends on what you mean by quality. Vinyl is an analog sound container and produces analog frequencies with a distinctive acoustic sound because of the way it's engineered. If that seems like a distortion of the source than you can quantify that quality based on that metric. Because of this a vinyl's sound is highly dependent on the sound system. Digital media such as CDs, computer devices and such using high quality formats such as lossless FLACs and high bit rate MP3s, are more precise and accurate at delivering digital productions as well as holding a stable frequency, but don't handle natural sounds like acoustics the same way as actual acoustic machines. Digital also has a more stable and pronounced dynamic range, basically vinyl is as physical as you can get with audio playback it comes with all the perceived benefits and disadvantages that come with that.Delete
Doesn't the disadvantage come with the record getting damaged by the needle over time, or is there a way to minimize that?Delete
Yup. But you could say the same about any form of music media. Tape snaps and distorts, records and cds can get scratched and skip and stutter, etc.Delete
Welp... well I need this. Ordered.ReplyDelete
Glad to see that UMX is getting actual work here! Always liked his style.ReplyDelete

BTW, Proto dude. I like the sprites how the viyal disc has 4 of the existing sprites from the games, Cut Man(Mega man), Magnet Man (Mega Man 3),Drill Man(Mega Man 4) and Galaxy Man (Mega Man 9).ReplyDelete
But if you look close you'll see two new 8-bit sprites are made for the vinyl disc with Burst Man (Mega Man 7) and Block Man (Mega Man 11).
Don't have a vinyl player... But its pretty cool that Ultramavericks is doing the art! Been following him for at least years, and I'm only a teen... Wow.ReplyDelete
Love the list, only glaring omission I can think for is Mr.X Stage form 6 (6 only 6 tracks is a shame in general). Very tempting purchase.ReplyDelete
oh my goodness! i just knew that the artstyle looked a bit too much like ultimatemaverickx's pieces!ReplyDelete
Is it licensed by CAPCOM?ReplyDelete
That's great. I woulda bought it if it had been on cd as well though. Not everyone has record players.ReplyDelete
