Super Metroid soundtrack redux

Friday, 20 December 2013 at 05:50 GMT

In a somewhat random update, I've reconstructed our offering of the Super Metroid soundtrack to bring it closer to what it actually sounds like in the original Super Nintendo. After learning that I'd encoded the tracks in 44100Hz instead of the Super Nintendo's native 32000Hz output, I couldn't resist going back to redo the lot. While the lower frequency makes it sound slightly more muffled than before, it now sounds much, much closer to the original soundtrack you'd hear while playing Super Metroid on the SNES or the Virtual Console.

I'd also like to take this moment to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a fantastic new year! I have some new things planned for the site in 2014, so be sure to drop by again for a surprise or two.
