If these are made from the 5.1 audio with only the center channel muted, it's very likely they're also lacking most sound effects. Can somepony verify this?
Wow This is cool :D
@BrowndIt still has all of the background music, and I'd say about 50% of the sound effects.Also, I wouldn't call it vocal "free" more like vocal "very muffled". Once I turned my speakers up, the speech was clearly still there, but softer.
Pinkie pie out of nowhere!hehehe pinkie pie looks cute over here LOL
@AnonymousI second that it's there though very hardly noticable.
The show has surprisingly much background music. Never noticed most of it with the vocals.
Is it much easier to get vocals separated rather than background music?Just curious.
So what does one do with these, anyways? Are they used as bases for something?
@TenchiFreak5They're probably for dubbings. Too bad they lack some SFX, as noted, but that can be helped. ;)
I often wonder how much of MLP:FIM's surprising success has to do with the decision to have a genuine musical score to the episodes as opposed to the usual choice of using recycled stock clips. Probably more than most people realize.
@Geldon YetichskyWell, it has done wonders for cartoons in the past. For years the only cartoon to use a full orchestra was a little show called The Simpsons. Then came Family Guy, the only show with a strong enough fan following to ever come back from cancellation. TWICE.So yeah, even though I don't think that MLP:FiM uses a real 52-piece orchestra like they do, I think you're definitely right that good music helps shows (especially cartoons) succeed quite a bit!
Too bad we still can't hear what Pinkie Pie's saying at the beginning of Ep. 3 Part 2.
Would you like to do this with even more episodes? Pretty please?
