Comment Xbox 360 optical out > Firewire 410 > Audacity (.wav) > dbPowerAmp (.flac w/ verify) Notes: This rip was created because of the backlash over the sound quality of the official release of Death Magnetic. A few astute folks found that the versions available for download on Guitar Hero III did not suffer from the compression and clipping that plauge the official release, so a project was launched to rip the GH III versions to a lossless format. This is the result of that project. As for the sound: this rip is noticeably quieter than the official release; the levels were not boosted because there were already peaks in the waveforms that were close to 0dB. The only way to adjust the volume would be to compress the tracks, which would have been difficult to justify given the purpose of this project. You can easily compensate for this by turning the volume knob on your audio equipment :)
