Grim Fandango Soundtrack CD !! Request

Dear forum users.

I have one big request.

I live in scandinavia, and I try to get hold of the Grim Fandango Soundtrack as it is immensly good.

I allready got the .mp3 version, but I am kinda a hifi guy, so I want this in full quality. It is very expensive/hard to get hold of this CD now.

Is there anyone here who have the original Grim Fandango soundtrack CD and either:

1: Sell me their CD, i will pay with paypal for everything + a price we can agree on for the cd

2: (this probably is the one people would like), if any of you can make a complete 1:1 copy of the GF soundtrack audio CD, and send to me in scandinavia. I will pay for everything, preferbly via paypal also here.

Thanks!! hope for reply'es.

Kristian

Hey there fellow scandinavian. I've tried to get the soundtrack the last two years, and it seems almost impossible to get, if you don't wanna buy it on ebay.


What'd **** !?!?

Another Scandinavian here. I don't have the soundtrack either and I don't really need it, but I wish you luck at getting it. Hopefully you can find someone who doesn't know what a treasure they have in their hands and is willing to sell it for a few bucks.

Hello there, welcome to the forums I don't have the soundtrack, but I did spend quite a sizeable amount of time searching for a copy, it seems near impossible to find though. Maybe I gave up to quickly, or easily =/ I have all the mp3 files, which I did burn onto a CD so I could listen to it on a stereo, that's good enough for me I suppose.

Yeah, I wouldn't mind the CD rips either. The mp3s we have on the site are of the highest quality I believe, but naturally no substitute for the very best.

I think I know someone with the soundtrack CD so I'll try asking him if he can sort me out.

If you could ask your friend to make a digital 1:1 copy on that cd I would be very happy. it's not that far from england to norway. I will of course cover any expense :-)

Baja!

You have it ripped directly from CD to .flac? Did you use a quality ripper?

Yes, I would like that the utter most. Then you don't have to burn it etc... Can I download it from you or how can we do this?

It'd be nice if you could get me a copy of the uncompressed music, CHAOSMAN. I'm not too bothered about getting a physical copy, but if uploading such a huge amount is a problem for you (I can provide the FTP) then perhaps that's not ideal.

I'm not so much thinking for myself as providing better quality .mp3s on grimfandango.net, offering it in some other formats like .ogg and .wma, and also possibly hosting the uncompressed versions in the future once bandwidth is less expensive.

What is rapidshare?

I would prefer WMA lossless, i have send you an email (and lets hope that Wmedia player finds the names of those files, it's 'alot' of them ;-)..

Can you convert .wma back to cd/mp3 later on by the way?

I have send you a mail.

Flac or OGG would be nice for me.
Rapidshare is a *free upload portal, where you can upload files and other users can download them, mostly for free with small restrictions.

www.zshare.net or megaupload.com would be ok aswell.
thanks so far chaosman

I can't speak for everyone else, but I think providing it in a format that's easy to work with such as an uncompressed dump (WAV?) would be the best.

WMA, for example, is actively protected by Microsoft who try to shut down any programs that allow you to open/convert them. FLAC can be a bit tricky for people to work with if they're not familiar with it. OGG will be compressed. Etc!

I could feasibly mirror it in smaller formats on grimfandango.net such as OGG and WMA once I've got the original rips.

Great, I've been looking everywhere for the CD as well!

It would be great to get a hold of the uncompressed wav-files, will you make them available for everyone?

WAV, FLAC, and OGG all ripped, raring them now and uploading to my server, should be another day or so. If you want any other formats i recommend you download the WAV files and do whatever you want, i dont have time to learn to rip it in every possible format

CHAOSMAN. Why not just link them on http://www.filefront.com? They stay there for practically forever. Plus you don't need to register or pay to do it

Thanks a lot. It'll be nice being able to provide better quality versions to those we already have on grimfandango.net.

Great work!

I know it has been a while, but is it possbile to upload OST (in FLAC) once again??
I am looking for this soundtrack for a while, and whenever I find it, its in mp3 ~160kb/s.

edit:
It's still working! When I first clicked the link to the file it redirected me to yahoo.com... but accidentaly I pushed the link with sfv and it worked, so I gave a try to flashget and this was it...
thank you very much for this upload

provide me the links of three file sharing sites that actually work, require only an email address to sign up, have minimum advertisements, and that are not shady. Bonus points if you can provide me one with a 200mb single file upload limit. Otherwise you're just going to have to wait until Thrik updates GF.net.

Also not to complain, but Chaosman's .ogg files are missing Companeros and Ninth Heaven, but he still has a copy of each in flac format.

I have registered in the LucasArts Forums just to thank you for sharing that awsesome soundtrack, and keeping the files on your server until today (30/9/12). The quality in the WAV format is great! I feel lucky to have found this. Once again, many thanks, ChaosMan. I think I owe you a lot.
Bye!
