2010-01 Friday 8th, Dark Penumbra Soundtrack Released to Critical Acclaim

Mikkeli, Finland – January 8th 2010 – The Sound of Fiction record label today released a special edition of the Penumbra Soundtrack. The Penumbra series, developed by Frictional Games, has achieved cult status, and Mikko Tarmia’s essential soundscape has been consistently lauded as one of the series’ greatest
achievements.

For the first time all in one place the album delivers over one hour and 27 tracks of remastered music from all three games, in addition to exclusive and previously unreleased material. Series narrative designer, Tom Jubert, returns to provide an exclusive text and further insight into Penumbra’s twisted tale. The series’ dark, signature theme tunes and ambient soundscapes make this an essential purchase for any VGM or horror aficionado, not to mention the serious Penumbra fan.

The CD edition is available for RRP €15.90 from the project's official website, where you can also find music clips and freebies: one full music track and the much requested piano note sheet for the Penumbra Overture theme. The download edition is available for RRP €9.90 from Frictional Games' online store. Purchase the Penumbra Soundtrack together with The Sound of Fiction’s first release, AIKA, for just RRP €24.90.

CD Edition @ Official Project Website: http://www.thesoundoffiction.com/PenumbraOST
Download Edition @ Frictional Games’ Store: store.frictionalgames.com

while this is great news, I noticed the download edition is in AAC.
did you consider releasing it in a lossless format, to make it as good as the CD edition?

cheers

Grodz:
Yes, English only.

It's 320 kbps AAC files, can you really hear the difference?

probably not.
but lossless encoding provides a good master, so I can convert it to other formats to fit different devices I may own.
I have not stopped buying physical cds for this very reason, unfortunately.
only a few progressive stores like magnatune.com do it right.

thanks for answering.

Why, to get more people to view this thread (and buy his music) you should include pictures of Lux!

Honestly, please do. I want to see how low I can go!!
Ignore that error message too. Just ignore it and keep going to give me -rep.
