The Quake HD Ultra Quality Sound Pack Remastered 2012 pack is a project to finally introduce the world to a better and improved aural experience in Quake. Quake came out in 1996, 16 years ago. Back then computers used much inferior sound hardware from what we have today. The Soundblaster could only playback 11kHz sounds, so that was what id Software used for the game sounds of Quake. The soundtrack on the other hand was released on CD, so they could use 44.1kHz for it. However, 12 years ago CD audio was still in its early days, sound engineers vastly improved the capatibility of audio hardware and especially CD mastering mechanisms. So, just like the game sounds, the Quake soundtrack leaves a lot to be desired for the audiophile's ears.

As a connoisseur of audio architecture and aural design I decided to remaster all the sounds of Quake to give the world an experience like id Software would have released, if only they had the technical options back then.

Nice work! However all weaponsounds and jumping sound are really distorted for me. Sounds when under water etc sounds great though!

Linux 64bit, ALSA, 44kHz

April fools obviously. But a good one
If you go to his page and listen to the sounds side by side with original you can hear the new ones suck
It's like he just added more noise.
ready!

I admit he almost got me here. His Beats(tm) talk was a little too much for me. And 72 hours vorbis encoding got 30 minutes of audio - pluease? :-p
