Hi thanks for posting these. I've noticed some instruments sound lower quality compared to others and this inconsistency makes it annoying to listen to (example). Do you have any plans to fix these issues?

All tracks and instruments are recorded with the same quality.
The same reverb is used throughout, but Facility turns it up higher (both in-game and here).
The dynamics only sound different because the samples arenít compressed (higher fidelity on higher frequencies), they are not going through the Nintendo 64 DAC (which seems to add some bass), and a higher-quality reverb is used.

If I knew the exact parameters of the Nintendo 64 reverb, I could re-record the entire set. Otherwise there is nothing to do.

Question L. Spiro. Which instrument samples sound better/clearer quality wise, the Goldeneye (U) version or the (PAL) version? Also is there a difference in the samples between the american and japanese versions of the game?

There is only one set of uncompressed samples, and I am fairly sure only one compression routine, meaning only one set of compressed samples. If there are any differences in the sound it would have to do with the Nintendo 64 hardware, but as far as I know only video is different between PAL and NTCS.

So as far as I know the set of samples is the same regardless of the region or version of the game and should sound the same on all cartridges.

If the uncompressed samples you have were formatted to work on the n64 hardware and compressed would the quality sound as good as it did when the samples were uncompressed or would the uncompressed (now compressed) samples sound exactly like how they do in the game as they normally do when you play the game?

If you take these samples and run them through the compression tool (decreased Hz to 22,500 and apply ADPCM compression) you should get exactly the samples you can find in the ROM, which are the same samples as in the public SoundFont.

Would they be more clearer ie, no distortion noises, buggy sound etc.?

As I said, I expect the end result will likely be exactly the same files as are in the ROM.
