A lot of the complaints about Legend Of Zelda: Twilight Princess was that it wasn't properly orchestrated and instead the music was all MIDI.
While I felt the music in Twilight Princess perfectly suited the game a lot of people who don't really know what they are talking about saw the words MIDI and thought bad.
Personally the fact that Twilight Princess was in MIDI made it feel more true to the original games and was pleased it had the shrill harshness of the original scores.
Anyway, a group of musicians have descided to transscribe all the digital music of the Zelda games and bring it to life with real orchestra samples.
You can listen to the new mixes here:
Bare in mind you will need Flash player installed to play the mixes.
Can I just state I hate the way the drums are mixed in these. They do feel more atmospheric than the originals but I just prefer the MIDI scores because to me they provide more character.
