Hey guys! Update post!
- August 2017 order update
My stuff only got shipped Wednesday Japan time. This includes SEB 244 and all the doujin CDs I talked in the previous update. So, unfortunately, they’ll come eventually in September instead of the planned end August.
- What’s in store for September 2017?
Unfortunately, I’m bringing bad news. My car decided to “break”; it still works but it’s very inconvenient for me and induce me a lot of stress. And I NEED my car, I just can’t say that I’ll walk instead or take a taxi. The repairs are going to be over a 1000$CAD. I’m struggling to find a way to pay for that. So, since I’ll be probably me loaning cash, I’ll have to slow down on CDs for quite some time. I don’t say that there won’t be any new rips, just less of them. If I get new discs, don’t expect them until the end of September, beginning October.If I buy anything it’ll be what I said in the previous post and ONLY that.
SEB 245 (which is a fucking mix), will be purchased in October but I dunno if there’ll be anything else with that. MAYBE SEB 204 and 221. MAYBE. Will depend if even allowed to retain my sanity while I repay back my car repair loan.
That is all. I’ll keep you guys posted.
Oi guys! It’s time for another update!
- August 2017
SEB 124-127, 197, 199, 201-203 got here like… on July 24th. It take a while to get everything going. They all should be shared in the coming days. I only have a few things to be done with the scans. Please note that the rips of SEB 197, 201 and 203 are not fresh per se. I have done these rip with EAC 1.0b3 a few years ago actually. They still hold and re-ripping them with EAC 1.3 will not change the quality whatsoever.
As for new CDs this month, I talked about it briefly in the last update. But I finally have a list.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 244
- [SuganoMusic] Eurobeat Festival Vol. 3 (Remember: this will be made available until Sugano uploads it to bandcamp!)
- [Eurobeat Union] ユーロバカ一代 Vol. 9 (CD + DVD)
- [Eurobeat Union] Nu-Ko – Best Of Nu-Ko (Momiji is love <3)
- [Crazy Beats] 頭文字T T-Selection Vol.05
- [Crazy Beats] Toho Euro Night Two
- [A-One] Toho Eurobeat Vol. 16 -永夜抄-
- [A-One] Montage Blue (A-One Best Collection Feat. 越田Rute隆人)
- [Sound Holic] 強敵 -Last Boss-
All the doujin will be delayed by SEB 244’s release on August 23. Then, it’ll take a few days for my forwarder to send everything. So. Don’t expect anything until September, unfortunately; unless I decide to have the doujin and SEB shipped separately. In which case, I’d have the doujins two weeks or so after August 11. I still haven’t decided.
- September 2017
There won’t be much that month. I wanna take it slow for once and focus my cash somewhere else.
So, there will be Raver’s Nest Best 2017 Toho Hyper Rave and MAYBE, if they are still available, the two last mixes I’m missing from the Toho Eurobeat series. There’s one month left before I can figure it out.
Alright. That’s it for now! Cheers.
I’m able to confirm the next batch of rips and/or scans I’m going to upload!
July (final list):
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 197 -King Of Eurobeat-. I could already up the mix since I made a rip a long time ago, but I’ll do it with a new set of scans.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 199 -Collaboration Of Eurobeat-
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 201
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 202
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 203
That’s it for the “unimpressive” ones. Now, for the more valuable ones.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 124 (First Press 2CDs)
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 125 (First Press 2CDs)
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 126 (First Press 2CDs)
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 127 (First Press 2CDs)
As far as I know, SEB124-129 First Press 2CDs only three volumes were ripped together: SEB 126, 128 and 129. By that, I mean, that the both CDs in the package were ripped together and just not have 2 different rips stitched together. You just can’t assume that the first disc is bit-pefectly the same across editions. But they all have faults in my eyes. SEB 126 have Russian logs (probably perfect but can’t make sure coz all log checkers check against English) and multiple-things-on-the-platter-and-no-post-processing scans. SEB 128 is a EAC 0.99 log with no checksum and no scans. SEB 129 weren’t perfect rips (65%). It also has scans but they are incomplete and “OK” quality.
ETA: End of July, early August. However, I can’t promise hard dates since it’s a LOT of work making rip & scans. Prepping everything is a good week of work easily.
- V.A. – Super Eurobeat Vol. 244 – that’s a given
- [SuganoMusic] V.A. – Eurobeat Festival Vol. 3 (as long as the bandcamp page is not up)
- Other doujin stuff. We’ll see what’s announced for Summer Comiket. Only Sugano’s release is confirmed.
If I have to stipulate, A-One and Sound Holic will have new material. Zun will release Touhou 16 soooooooooooo… yeah… I hope that Crazy Beats, Eurobeat Union and Halozy will release new stuff too.
Regardless, we’ll talk about that in the next update post! Which will be, hopefully, be a thing from now on.
Just an heads up. Sugano finally uploaded Eurobeat Festival Vol. 1 & 2 to bandcamp:
So, this effectively means I’m removing download links for them. Hope you enjoy your preview files and please encourage Sugano! Those are very good Eurobeat compilations!
Note that, if a Vol.3 gets released, that doesn’t mean I’m not going to upload it. I will just follow the same rules: keep it up until Sugano put it up for sale on Bandcamp.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
I did not expect to have been away from my PC that much time. So, I won’t have much of anything ready at least next week. And that’s generous.
Hey there everybody.
The good news: I received my 10 CDs today and started ripping. SEB 190’s improved scans almost done.
The bad news: I… won’t be able to scan and upload anything until March 7. March 7 is everything is ripped and ready to go. Chances are that won’t happen (ie. 99% sure that won’t happen). And I also like to make Discogs entries for everything so that will make things even longer. I’m really, really sorry guys.
Reason: Important family member health issue that needs surveillance.
Cheers y,all and sorry for all of the delays.
I think I owe you guys an update
Where are the new uploads?
My next batch of releases is in the mail. I should get the CDs somewhere next week. However, most of the CDs leaked already…? I think…? Might be just private torrent trackers though. Either way, regardless of leaked or not, I’ll be making my own rips and scans. Stay tuned: 10 (TEN) CDs are coming!
Do you have an update on updated SEB 190’s scans?
They are still not done but that’s the next thing I tackle in the next days!
Are you working on the next Best 25 Of SEB?
Believe it or not, I started it in November 2016 as a kind of an in-between projects. So, yes. However, around that time, my favorite music community closed and… I joined another music-minded community and it all threw off all my plans as I spent time on there and, on top of that, work on the Best Of Eurobeat 2016 at the same time. So, between Best Of 2016 and other stuff, it has been pushing off the next Best 25 Of SEB. Yesterday, I just finished updating my stuff for the music community (just took 3 months). So, once the updated SEB 190’s scans are all edited and proper, the next batch of CDs ripped, scanned and edited, it will probably be the next thing I tackle. However……. there’s The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild and I will be picking it up… So, yeah. SO much stuff I wanna do. But, don’t worry, I’ll get around to it! I’ll finish the series for sure!!! You just need to be patient.
If you have any questions, please, feel free to comment and I’ll get around to answer your concerns.
See you guys around.
Did you think I was dead? NOPE!
In fact, I’m prepping some uploads right NOW!
Yeah! We’re back.
Thanks y’all for the patience.
Also, Best 20 Of Super Eurobeat Vol.4-6 are now fully viewable online on YT. Unfortunately, Vol. 2 would make me put my blog back to offline if I were to upload it again. So, this one won’t be viewable on YT. Also, I plan on starting a vid.me channel with all my mixes on it. So, far, the staff has been awesome and I think I’ll be verified soon so I can upload my stuff without the time limit. Yeah!
Also: new stuff planned to be uploaded in January. Woop-de-doo.
