Haha, the obvious blunder aside, that's actually a really high bar. Video game music has enjoyed some insane quality for decades. Even in the 80s and 90s, it wasn't just underproduced MIDI melodies. By that time, we already had the mindblowing Symphony Ys 88 album, whose audio quality astounds me to this day. Besides that example, orchestral arrangements for video game music have been going on for a very long time. It wouldn't happen if the source material wasn't at least very good, which it often was due to legends like Yuzo Koshiro, Yasunori Mitsuda, and Ryo Yonemitsu. All very "actual artists," and that was just a few of them.


Dopple loves you. Yes, you.

Yeah. I always roll my eyes at people who say music isn't "real" if it's in a video game, especially when it's people who like it saying it. People crediting the game (or developer, or publisher) instead of the composer is also one of my pet peeves. Saw that comment and felt like making a quick doodle.

 

Also, you mentioned Maplestory orchestra a while back? I'm gonna have to look into that because I've been on a nostalgia kick for it lately.

Yeah! Look out for "MapleStory Symphony in Budapest," they're all amazing. I put one up earlier, but here are a couple others:

 

 

 

Apparently, due to licensing issues, they haven't published any official albums (besides the Amazon MP3s that got pulled). Still keeping my eyes peeled. It has to happen someday...

That's great. Yeah, I'd love to buy that if it was available, especially a physical release.
