Default Kickstarters projects

This thread is here to talk, announce or just mention Kickstarter Projects that have a soundtrack as a price.


Reformation C64 Track Remakes by Matt Gray (ends Dec 2 2014)
The project is already funded, so it's worth mentioning it, and backing maybe.

If I may suggest, let's have one threads for announcements only and another for discussion. That way it will be easy to check for new VGM-related projects.

Hey Everyone. Only just found this site courtesy of Coin_Up. Thanks for mentioning my Kickstarter. It's not easy spreading the word, but well over 1,000 fans are going to get their hands on a fistful of CDs and new SIDs next year after supporting my Reformation album, which is basically me remaking all my best known C64 music using modern technology. Check out the project here cos there's only 3 days left until it closes. http://goo.gl/fSsE3J

Also check out my Soundcloud to hear just what sort of music you'll get when the project is done. https://soundcloud.com/mattgrayc64

Thanks and now I've got a whole new cool music site to check out here.

There's just 17 hours left for Matt Gray's Reformation Kickstarter. Most backers already have 5 CDs worth of music to look forward to and there could be a 6th one if the £75k goal is reached by close.

Know this post is not totally in-line with the spirit of this thread, but the Kickstater for Shantae: Half-Genie Hero is still taking donations for their project until just before the 17th of December.

Although the purpose of the project is to fund the game, the soundtrack is a part of the rewards. You can obtain a digital copy with a $25.00 donation and $75.00 will get you a physical copy.

I will pass, as I have not been impressed with either the project description, the rewards structure or the introduction video. But perhaps someone else will find this interesting.

A Rebirth of the Crystal~A Final Fantasy IX Oratorio~
Ends Feb 2, 2015.

Restart of the aborted campaign posted a month ago. I am still not convinced - the project description is a bit better than before, but still not something I would trust with my money. (Speaking of money, the reward structure is atrocious, I mean USD 500 for a physical CD, come on! I might be willing to pay that, but that would require the Daggerfall soundtrack or something similarly rare.)

Kickstarter. I have a love/hate mentality with the idea. On the one hand, I know that people need funding, and that things such as production are not cheap. At the same time, (and this given that I have several productions in the works myself), I do feel that it can be very unfair to put all the weight upon ones contributors, especially with such a high premium for something as meager as say, a t-shirt. I really do hope to make as good of a product without public funding so people can just get to enjoying the music at hand, but that is just me. I would even rather roll out the product slowly first with digital downloads before a full CD release so at least people have something good to listen to that will give an idea what the final product will be like while waiting for the full release. Just my opinion, but of course others may choose another path to glory.

In my mind, Kickstarter's main boost is to the avalability and/or speed of release. You are correct that it places the burden of financing on the contribution, which is bad. But at the same time, it greatly speeds up the whole process. Without Kickstarter, we would still only have the 1993 Turrican album, rather than the awesome boxset we have now. I know that great many possible albums never came into being simply because there was not enough interest to assure the author that his time would be compensated; with Kickstarter, you can get that assurance quickly, with a high degree of certainty.

Personally, I am not interested in T-shirts at all. It is unfortunate that many people are, and for that reason T-shirts take up the cheaper levels and I have to pay for them, even if I don't want them, if I prefer some of the more expensive rewards.

As a consumer, I would rather pay up front to be assured of the production of a CD, than to have a digital album released with a high probability that the physical product won't come out at all. I have seen that way too often :-(

It does happen that way quite often from what I have seen as well. I have to wonder whether it is simply a funding issue, or people realize they didn't have the dedication to go through with the project after all. Kickstarter, in that regard, probably forces people with lesser resolve to "get 'er done" whether they want to or not.

Fortunately for me, I can't stand lossy codecs like mp3's so not really a chance I would leave people with anything other than a Redbook standard in the end.

The stretch goal has been reduced to 48000, which is almost funded already.

Sure, but here at VGMdb, the game is not relevant. The soundtrack is.

Shenmue 3

Already funded.

Includes MP3 download for $160 and physical CD for $250. Way too much for me, considering that I don't care about the game, but might be interesting for someone.

Chrono Cinematica- Symphonic Chrono Trigger Tribute Album
Ends Jul 23, 2015

$25 for a physical CD.

I am unsure about the target price, $3000 seems a bit too low for a symphonic recording - unless it is meant to be performed on synthetisers.

Yeah, totally not going to be performed live. Remixers use the term "symphonic" to refer to using orchestral instruments--not necessarily with live players. If I had it my way, I'd delete the word "symphonic" from any fully synthesized score because it does kind of give the wrong impression (sometimes intentionally?)

Or at least be clever and make up a word like "synphonic" or something (no Actraiser reference intended, that actually was performed live)

Technically not a Kickstarter project, rather a Gofundme (link at the bottom, if you want to read my story and get a better idea as to who I am and what I do)

I've posted a few of my videos here, but never really received any feedback. I mean, if people aren't interested in what I do, then that's fine---I'm not going to try to force myself onto anyone. I would like to think that my work is somewhat exceptional, but perhaps that's just because I'm me. I'm self-aware enough to know that, in the end, maybe I just suck! Lol.

In any case, here's some of my stuff:

Mega Man 3 - Wily Boss Theme - Guitar

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgmpF6bXJcU

Mega Man 2 - Metal Man Theme - Guitar

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvmXVbntGl8


I'm just trying to keep up some sort of output with my covers and original chiptunes. I release them all for free on youtube, soundcloud, bandcamp, etc; so I'm not really trying to make any money off of this stuff. It's just my passion in life, and it's as simple as that---I'll do it just to do it. If enough people like what I do, and want to help make it easier for me to make more material, so much the better.

Anyway, here's the link:

Jake Kaufman Soundtrack For "Ghost Police"
Ends Nov 13, 2015

Quote:
As for the music, veteran musician Jake Kaufman will be providing original chiptune compositions for the game! Jake has created music for many videogames over the past decades including Shovel Knight, Ducktales Remastered, Double Dragon Neon and the Shantae series - incredible pedigree and versatility in many genres! It's a delight to have Jake bring his years of experience to the table - he's the reason this Kickstarter exists to begin with! However, you, the pledger, the gamer, are even more important to this Kickstarter, as you hold its fate in your very hands - so you deserve an honest and level-headed breakdown on where exactly your money is going!
Quote:
Rewards aren't factored into the budget, they are kept purely digital to save on further expenses. We know people will be disappointed there aren't physical items on the rewards list, but we also know people would be much more disappointed if the game made its pledge goal and the money spent on production and shipping left Jake and Steven out of pocket.
Seems like no CD version is planned, but digital soundtrack will be made available for GBP 10. No mention on the format provided or really any detail - it seems even though the Kickstarter is specifically for the soundtrack, the soundtrack is an afterthought in all project rewards. I will pass.
