No. Even if it were able to, through MIDI, play back every sample used in the original soundtrack - which it can't - it wouldn't be able to live-process the plugins used beyond maybe a really basic reverb or delay.useu wrote:First of all, the Nintendo 64, because of the cartridge support, would have been EFFECTIVELY (so we exclude any hypothesis) able to reproduce the soundtrack of the game in the SAME digital audio quality of the PlayStation 1 counterpart?
Yes or No? If yes, the most experienced motivate the first answer.
Okay look - the largest N64 games are 64 MB. That is not enough space to fit the Rayman 2 soundtrack (nor is 128), and compression is out of the question. How hard is the math, honestly?useu wrote:Secondly, the choice of the (MIDI) format used for the soundtrack of Rayman 2 for Nintendo 64 has depended OF FACT on the capacity of the cartridge or the fact that the Nintendo 64 was not able to reproduce the sound in digital audio quality? I give a practical example, suppose that the developers had exploited a large cartridge twice the size of the game (from 60MB or higher if it existed) could have inserted and then SOUND, REPRODUCE, the soundtrack in the same digital audio quality of the CD format?
Yes or No?
I don't really know what you mean by "digital audio" in this context. All audio in games is digital, even the samples used to play back the music. There's no technical difference between a sound effect and the full, rendered music tracks played back by the PS1 version.useu wrote:Frankly I have some doubts since the OFFICIAL story teaches that cartridge games have never supported digital audio except for some sound effects.
As this question is the fulcrum of the whole discussion I ask for a direct and precise answer, thank you.
This part of the question isn't legible, can you re-word it? If you're asking whether they could've done a better job than they did, then yes, they absolutely could have.useu wrote:could have played and then play better than they did the soundtrack in the Nintendo 64 version?
Are you, thejack and raysak all the same person? All of you seem to have the exact same linguistic skills, way of formatting your posts and personality, insofar as manually sending me a PM every time there's a reply to this thread.
