The Chipmunks covers you haven't heard UNTIL NOW

by
This is copied from my dA~ Figured I'd post here

On my quest for a complete collection of AATC music, I came across the fact that a couple Guitar Hero-esque rhythm games have been churned out as tie-ins to the feature films.

Intrigued, I looked over the tracklists.

The latest 'Squeakuel' game has a paltry selection of tracks, the entirety of the lot having been lifted directly from their other albums.

However, their first game, released in 2007; has an impressive list of 39 all-new covers that were recorded specifically for the game title, spanning a wide variety of popular rock. I was blown away, actually.

After poking around a bit, I discovered that nobody else on the internet had made these tracks available. For shame!

So! immediately I went about grabbing a copy of the PC version of this game.

I subsequently spent the whole morning ripping open the bin files, locating the proper raw files that contained all the tracks, extracting those one-by-one into .pcm, and then converting them to MS ADPCM, and finally re-encoding them into 320kbps mp3! (Then, of course, tagging the tracks properly one-by-one by listening to each file)

This all took around 6 hours, so I can understand why nobody else has really bothered. They'd have to be disturbingly obsessed.
 
ANYWAY

They sound great, and you can't get them anywhere else! So, if you enjoy AATC covers, grab them!

It was funny to note how there are certain tracks that were locked only to particular versions of the game. The Wii and PS2 releases of this game had 'exclusive' tracks that that PC/DS version couldn't access; and vice-versa. However, the developers didn't bother to actually remove those bonus tracks from the release, so they were still there in the raw data. How fortunate!

What was that about disturbingly obsessed? XD

I'd probably want to cherrypick a few favorites just to throw up an all AATC soundtrack for a stream session and see how many heads melt. X3

Nifty, sadly I dun play that game, so no go for me, but a LOT of those songs are tempting to hear like so. Also thanks to YOU I made myself watch The Squeakuel... and I actually rather liked it. They really kind whore out the Chipettes though. XD Some of their movements, YIKES, but it also showed me more into why you have some of them depicted as they are, and I just adore it. <3 Totally a Simon dork now. D:
Lando

points out the... suspect nature of a decades-long popularity to a group of "children" singing songs with themes like Love Shack. XD

I remember these from FA! <3 I think One Week is hilarious. XD

Are you ever going to get the songs from the Squeakquel game sometime? :3
Lando
8 years, 1 month ago
I didn't bother because none of the Squeakquel tracks were new covers, they're all lifted from previous AATC albums

I did the EXACT same thing! (although I took more than 6 hours, alot more) You just saved this old munk fan a LOT of work, thanx
But yeah, I lost my secret-fan-stash of 'munk art and albums (sizable at most) when my drive crashed, I was too eager to move all my files onto my new and first terabyte drive.
