and everything else of interest.
Please do come back! I hope this won't be the end of the TLMC.
Another 3 month wait. Really.
The person maintaining these doesn't owe you shit. What, have you listened to all the music of the 1000+ circles already?
But that's rude, Anon, even if true. He's just disappointed.
You're right, I overreacted. I apologize. It tends to rustle my jimmies when people complain about another's hard work that they get for free. Unless if it's software... no-one should make bad software, free or not :)
I can't wait 3 months.Time for seppuku
I think you meant sudoku.
come on I already played sudoku for 3 months where's my torrent :(
Take your time, i am patient :)
I will wait leet haxxor
Such wait. Much delay. Wow.
Oh well. Have a list of xunlei fags then.pastebin.com/UH9EvrYX
Chinese ISPs use dynamic IP address, so the list will be invalid after those Xunlei clients redail.
What is reason for skipping this one ?
rwx28 October, 2013 01:50Next version next week (hopefully) or a bit later.>end_request: I/O error, dev sdh, sector 1144>md/raid:md0: Disk failure on sdh, disabling device.>md/raid:md0: Operation continuing on 16 devices.I sure hope third drive doesn't decide to die on me while the rebuild is running.And that's why you shouldn't procrastinate replacing disks even with raid6.rwx09 November, 2013 20:38The drive I thought I'd use as a replacement did not pass full surface check, so I had to order new ones.I'd have to rebuild to one drive, take it out, rebuild to a second one, take it out, compare their contents, as there are silent bus errors which could cause rebuild process to write erroneous data to the new drives, and think what to do next if there are mismatches anywhere other than in array headers.I'm considering skipping this release and waiting for Feb 2014, but havent decided yet. Will post update next weekend.
A combination of busy and lazy, with just a bit of lean towards the latter.
we are okay :)
Someone finally ripped 死際サテライト - THE DAY THE WORLD WENT AWAY EP.https://mega.co.nz/#!GIwDGRjT!eeNrnTwQEEftnk2drP5Yh0JBkbI_T7Ex7mW-evWYwhQ
Thanks anon-kun, here's another one,(C84) [9bFOX & 死際サテライト] PSYCHO EP (FLAC)https://mega.co.nz/#!TYgmQIjT!NT2vcz7vKXMsFM7jBPQXT0dHjV9GZX0MVHlEvURJkQwGuest vocals by 千影!.
Even if it dies here, you've done far beyond what's imaginable, thanks so much and take your time!Sincerely,
Good. Since I'm just downloading from server to raid now (which will take a good few days...)I'll have a chance to start sorting through all the stuff I don't like which I've been meaning to do. huehuehue.
There's a problem with one of the tta files. 弾奏結界 幻葬旋律曲 Necromanza (by dBu Music) skips on 無何有の郷 ～ Snowed Mountain. It skips around 0:09 seconds and starts playing again after about two seconds. This shouldn't be happening. Is it possible that this problem be fixed somehow? If that is ok.
Let me check my TTA and get back to you. I thought I found all the broken files already when I made fixes at least 6 updates ago.
No, my TTA's fine. I suggest redownloading.
To check try opening with another player or update your foobar plugin if you're playing it with foobar.
Well I am using foobar, and I did redownload the file but it still skips at 0:09. (Sorry for replying so late)
I also played it on Audacity and it still skipped
Don't have any problem either, try downloading it again from another torrent?
Have you guys tried re-downloading that particular album from that link? Maybe the current one you have isn't corrupt, but the one in the download link seems to definitely be corrupt. Maybe it got corrupt at some point while uploading in the past. I downloaded that same album about 5 times and the same thing happens over and over again. Both in Foobar and in Audacity. I have no problem with any other album, why just this one? If it turns out the problem is actually just me for some reason, then what other torrent is there where I can download this particular album?
Actually, never mind, I'm hoping it just my audio player. Cause I'm noticing some weird skips on some other songs as well. Why is this... My foobar is on it's latest version, maybe it's just foobar? Maybe it's just audacity? What audio player do you guys use?
Oddly enough, they're from dBu albums.
rwx please poke me before you upload v18. I have two or three demo discs that's not collected yet.
Just drop links here before then and I'll notice.
I will wait.
I finally have a ZFS array set up which can hold this torrent but I can't afford an internet connection that can actually upload anything... sigh
rwx, if you need any help with hosting or w/e message me on steam as fuuka ayase
rwx, I think you've missed the album "Sweet Beat TV" by monoROSETTA. VGMDB: http://vgmdb.net/album/34743
Just dropping the link here in case. https://mega.co.nz/#F!wE4DlYIb!N61i3kBghKpUvOCoOU2GXgI have ripped my batch and there are albums not on the TMLC (or anywhere else seemingly), such as Xenoglossy, thj.quartet, Alice in the hole!, Ryuuha Mikaido (流派未階堂), and Symphonic Fantasm III. I'm getting more Alice in the hole! Touhou albums but not sure if they will arrive before February.
let's have sex with me rwx oh oh oh ang?
It's february, where's my torrent :P
February!! It's running out! Quickly, before we run out of time!
Less than a week left, please rwx please! :(
I have 82 albums from C84 (26.5 GB) and 27 albums from C85 (8.5 GB). Some others I should add, but that's the bulk.Might not have time for it this week. Might decide to switch to yearly updates.
>Might decide to switch to yearly updates.Please don't. Keep it at least ever 2 comikets.
Is that all of the stuff from C84 and C85 by any chance? If you do decide to switch to yearly updates, I'll take this opportunity to start sitting in /jp/ threads during each comiket and downloading everything myself since my lazy option (this torrent) will be out of the question.
Just take your time rwx, if you don't have the time, you simply don't have the time.Although, yearly seems a bit long; have you considered semi-annually instead? I was crushed when the last one didn't happen, but every six to eight months isn't that bad.
Oh no!, well at least it will be yearly.
This is a sad news but I understand. Keep it coming when you have the time to do it, rwx. orz
To those wanting new releases of TLMC. You know you could do some seeding in the meantime for the rest of us. There are plenty of leechers and not enough seeders. Besides, there is really no excuse for slow uplink speeds when you have managed to download it through whatever way you chose.
I keep seeding 24/7 since v13
Unless it makes your torrent client take 2 extra hours to launch up...
utorrent 3.1.3 starts up immediately even with 2hu torrent loaded, no rechecks. It's the only client that can handle touhou torrent without a problem.
Hi, i would like to know how i can split the albums.
Does anyone know how to tag one specific song without splitting the album? foobar2000 reads .cue files instead of one single album files, maybe that's why I cannot modify the tags but I'm not sure...Btw rwx thx for your wonderful work ^^
Edit the .cue file and reload it.
That was a fast answer, thx ! :pI clicked on utilities => edit cuesheet but I have this message http://puu.sh/7eZSr.jpgThis is the cuesheet opened : http://puu.sh/7f010.jpgIn fact, I'd like to add a "rating" tag like i did here for example : http://puu.sh/7f06K.jpgI managed doing it by writing APL link files based on the cuesheet http://puu.sh/7f0ie.jpg => http://puu.sh/7f0oR.jpgAnd once switched the cuesheet by the APL file in foobar's playlist I can tag them.But I'd like to do it directly because I'm too lazy xD(Tagging directly the cuesheet doesn't work neither reloading it)
I missed the reply button my bad u_u
Only way it would work is if you rip it/split it, or use another player that would remember the ISO-9660/Red Book tagging correctly. And far as my brain goes, only one that would do that is iTunes.Personally I use iTunes to rip all my crap, and honestly, I think older version has minimode that is lot more tidier looking then Foobar. Well, imo, Foobar looks just ugly downright, and doesn't do all tagging I use. (I actually do use composer / comment / grouping / rating field)
This is because, natively speaking, Wave format/ISO-9660/Red Book was not designed to handle some of the tagging (ID3). Certainly, you can force some tagging on it, such as title, and depends on media player. Rating, artist, title, grouping, and album name tags fine on iTunes, but there are still many issues, such as no album art embedding. This is because for iTunes' case, the iTunes Media Data would remember this info for you, but it doesn't work perfectly, since ID3 can not be written on the file itself.So in that sense, it would be uselessness of the Foobar that's the issue.
Thx for the explanations ! I'll take a look at iTunes or keep doing APL files ^^
when are you going to come back...
So let me get this straight. You're still going to release the next version over the next couple of days, but you're then thinking of slowing down releases dramatically? I'd be saddened, but fine with that as long as the version we're waiting on now doesn't get delayed for much longer.
I'm 70% certain next release will happen this month.
Eh, it's up to you, rwx.
Be my wifu.
I guess we are just unlucky :(
Please come back in Feb 2014.................................it's March 2014 bro
Hey rwx, just wanna say thanks for all the selfless work you do organizing, collecting, and maintaining the TLMC. I was pretty worried when February came and went and there was no update; I had prepared myself for the worst before coming here and reading the comments, but after reading that you were still working on it, I was relieved. I really don't mind however long the wait is, and would be glad to have yearly updates.if it's easier on you. I've been following since v14, and the TLMC is about 95% of everything I listen to. It's an important part of my life (as I'm sure it is for many others). I don't know how much help you get from other people that send you albums and stuff, but major props to them as well for tracking down these gems (and knowing who to send them to).Hope this comment gives you some encouragement. Take your time, stay healthy, and thanks for giving us all innumerable hours of wonderful listening time.
Just thought I'd post the correct way to listen to the TLMC.You're supposed to shuffle the songs only once, so you can go through 46,000 songs without hearing any repeats. And resume playing from the last index at the next session.If you leave the songs on random shuffle every time, on average you'll have to listen to about 400,000 songs before you'll have heard each song at least once. That's on average of 10 repeats for every song.Shuffling only once is the best way to minimize repeats. And by the time you finish the 46,000 songs, you'll have forgotten the first songs, so you can listen forever, and each song sounds completely new.
You forget taste. Few love hardcore and piano arrange at the same time. So I recommend to pick circles fit your preferences. That would be a much smaller pool.
@Anonymous: Yeah but no one knows what the songs/circles sound like. Besides, they all sound about the same anyway.
^There's no use trying to sort the songs into "much smaller pools" because no one knows what a song sounds like ahead of time. It's also too much work.
I dunno about anyone else, but I *love* hardcore and classic piano arranges. Jazz, death metal, post punk, pop, eurobeat, dance, house, folk rock, country, hip-hop, symphonic. If it's Touhou, I love it.
I will spend the rest of my life trying to listening all of it xd
Our faith wavers not.
Is it happening?
Touhou lossless music collection\[ef sound system]\2008.12.29 [EFCD-02] East Fantasia [C75]Track 5 has no sound for a few seconds at around 1:25
It turns out I was wrong this time. Instead of cutting back on P████e & D█████s I picked up V██████e C█████e.No more deadlines, ready when I think there's enough new material. Instead of expecting and getting frustrated just add to RSS and forget about it until release.
Okuuu! Added to RSS.
Well that's some major bullshit right there. Now I'm just flat out incapable of listening to things from the past handful of Comikets that have gone by since getting every album that was released after the initial first week or two is near enough impossible. I don't see what the problem is with releasing one last update now that everybody knows that the next ones are actually going to be coming out much more sparsely, but I'm sure nobody will mind that since they can just sit in threads on /jp/ downloading the albums themselves as they come out. I also don't know what you mean by "when I think there's enough new material". You yourself said that there's near 35GBs worth of albums.I'm not even mad that you're getting tired of updating this, because I would probably get sick of it too, but you could at least give us one last update now that we know that the updates have a chance of coming out much much slower than usual (which I'm sure everybody would be fine with providing they're told in advance).As for the inevitable ass kissing "wow man wtf he owes you nothing" replies, just shut the fuck up. I'm well aware of that."P████e & D█████s I picked up V██████e C█████e." I don't know if it's just me but I can't read what this part of the sentence says.
I check this site almost everyday in hopes of seeing an update. Now I am sad, rwx-sama :'(
I think I into a wrong world line
We're in that 30%.
So no latest comiket music. Wish my HDD with them hadn't died. They'll be hard to find now
Have hope in rwx-sama!
new 2hu torrent never ; __ ;
I really hope you'll release an update soon. Heck, I'd even donate you a bit for work of maintaining this.
Would anybody be interested if I uploaded an updated version of this since it's looking like a lost cause?
No idea, maybe you should contact rwx first or wait his answer.In my opinion it wouldn't be good to create new distributions of this torrent while this one is still alive.Anon-san, he put a lot of effort to this don't call it a "lost cause" so easily. but yeah the waiting it's getting a bit loong. ^^
Still waiting in anticipation. I could throw out pretty much all of my crappy torrents but this one is just pure gold. Neatly organized, consistent, and almost comprehensive. I really hope you manage to find the time and momentum to pick this up again.
I really hope this project does not die. rwx, you are the best
Hope the next version, support rwx
I like pancakes.
pls dont die torrent sama
Ok then we will wait till Reitaisai 11?
I'll wait forever.
Still waiting faithfully for the next release.And I did some research for myself and other Linux users around these parts (do they exist?). I've tried at least twelve native music players/managers for Linux claiming some degree of cuesheet and/or tta support and found that exactly *one* of them actually handles the unmodified TLMC contents very well: cmus, an ncurses based player and library manager (though it must be compiled with cue and ffmpeg support; cmus --plugins to check and clear cache if it doesn't work when it should). And cmus just so happens to be an excellent piece of software when you put in the effort of getting familiar with its functions and workflow. An honorable mention goes to DeaDBeeF: it handles the cuesheets and tta playback, but doesn't really have a library and crashed on me more than once in a few hours of testing.I was bugged two things in the resulting library, though: not all albums have year numbers (even though they're present in the directory names) and there are many spelling variations and inconsistencies in the artist names (even though they're nicely grouped in the directory structure). So I wrote a shell script to automatically replace these pieces of information in the cuesheets with information extracted from the directory structure. This greatly improved the usability of the TLMC library in cmus. Here's the script: http://pastebin.com/kcVQvT77
Still waiting faithfully
Me too bro me too.
Some sort of reply on the progress from rwx would be nice.I know they aren't making promises anymore but I'm so behind on collecting things myself after having used TLMC for so long, and at this point I'm considering spending a few weeks catching up everything and reorganizing. There's so much great music I've been missing out on and I don't know if TLMC is really "Almost there" or not even started on being updated.
It's more likely that at this point in time we're closer to the upcoming update than to the previous one.
Yey~...and I still like pancakes
no offence but,can you tell me how much time would be really we should wait?it's not pushing you but i really have to know how much do i wait.

Okay guys, I can't wait any longer. I need sources for lossless touhou music. Some of you probably need them too. I'll post some sources here that I know. Anyone that knows more, please reply with your links. That way we can get new stuff manually.Of course just post links that contain lossless touhou music, not lossy. TTA format is preferred but not necessary.Only post sites which are serious about their quality. DON'T POST SITES LIKE THESE:>>> http://www.filestube.to/ <<< just DON'T!IRC links which offer files over XDCC are welcome too.My sources:http://www.nyaa.se/http://audioforyou.anisource.net/
Here is a nice community-driven website:http://doujinstyle.com/More specifically, here is the link to where in the fourms people post their downloads to:http://www.doujinstyle.com/forum/viewforum.php?id=16One thing to mind though is that there are also lossy uploads. But, considering the direct downloads and that the vast collection of music is - well, vast - why shouldn't I mention it? And if there was an lossy encode of an album someone uploaded, you could request for a lossless encode. There is a "Requests" board in the fourms (also useful for requesting albums that haven't been posted yet), or you can just ask on the same topic the lossy encode was on.
I think that he's pointing at some sites with lossless albums. Besides you can a lot of the lossless in DS, but it'd be better to go look for them at baidu.
Many tta rips are uploaded to the Perfect Dark p2p network. It's not that hard to set up if you have the required disk space (which shouldn't be a problem for this particular audience) and the malware risk is low to non-existent, it just takes a bit of patience to download the goods from Asia over an encrypted, distributed network. But eventually everything gets through, and music in particular is very doable. There's an English interface option and the filtering is pretty straightforward as long as you know the right keywords. In my experience terms like tta, cue, 東方, 同人, 音楽, names of circles, conventions (e.g. C85 or 例大祭), and of course specific albums can all be effective.
Thanks! I remember it requires to have good internet connection tho, at least 100Mb. C/D?
Definitely false. It's just that many Japanese have 100mbit links, which is (together with the enforced 50GB cache per client) why the network can survive in the first place. The only speed requirement that I know of is that you set your upload cap to at least 100kB/s. There may or may not be a download penalty involved for proving incapable of managing that speed. Anyway, this means you're good with even 1mbit of upstream, which I suppose won't be a problem for most of us.A few other points I forgot to mention:- Unlike bittorrent, where opening ports is optional and results in better performance, it is absolutely required for PD. You can set the port to anything you want but you must make sure your router forwards this ports traffic to your computer and your firewall allows incoming connections on this port. The steps are the same as for bittorrent so one of the many existing guides can be used.- You can grab the client from here http://perfectdark.benri-tool.net/init/install.html (after that it's self-updating)- On the first run the network has to be bootstrapped with a list of nodes, you can use this one http://perfectdark.benri-tool.net/node/nodes.txt (use with the 'encrypted' option for adding nodes in PD)- You have to be a bit patient at first as PD probes the network and builds up a cache; just keep it running for a day or so. Even after that, searches will always be gradual, meaning part of the results may appear immediately but they are often supplemented by harder-to-find results in the course of time (up to a couple of days in rare cases). So leave your dead searches around for some time, there's always a chance something will pop up later. And make sure you're not actually doing a sub-search when you meant to make a new search, the PD interface isn't very clear on this.
Does anyone know what happened to otokei-douj.in? The site just died for some reason.
It's back up.
Anybody feel like continuing what rwx started?
This comment has been removed by the author.
Sufficiently old utorrents (like the one I use) can't download because of too many pieces. Try the latest one, it is known to work.Also, what's the obsession with external hard drives? They are slow, the USB-SATA chips are often flakey and glitch once a week at best and so on. The internal ones cost less, don't take extra space on the table and just work until they die.
Just got myself a 4TB "internal" HDD with eSATA enclosure, attached to a pretty powerful plug computer running ArchARM, rtorrent running 24/7... ready for .19.

Thank you. Will add.
So does that mean... TLMC LIVES ON?!This is a joyous day. I suddenly feel the urge to get productive.
Hi, I'm curious about what made you choose TTA format and one track per album files, why not FLAC and separated tracks? Does it take longer? Idk if this has already been explained, I'm too lazy to read every comment sorry ^^Anyway, thanks for everything. Hope to see you again (I'm not in a hurry so time doesn't matter) =)
Ow, I forgot that many Touhou albums are already in TTA and one single track files in Japan, so the reason may be to keep only one kind of format. But that doesn't answer to the question, why not FLAC (it offers a better compression, if I'm not wrong...).
>I'm curious about what made you choose TTA format and one track per album filesTorrent is shit and most clients would crash with so many files>it offers a better compressionno, it doesn't
I understand better, thanks for your answer.http://wiki.hydrogenaud.io/index.php?title=Lossless_comparison Indeed I was wrong, I got another format mixed up ^^
One of the main reasons I chose TTA was that it offers unique representation. TTA compressor has a single set compression "level", is deterministic and as a container of sorts does not have embedded metadata, which is a huge plus. This means that two identical PCM waveforms will be compressed into two identical .tta files.Regarding compression level it is 2 or 3 times slower to decode than FLAC, but it's still hundreds of times realtime speed for modern CPUs. It compresses just a tiny bit better than FLAC, but the difference is of the order of 0.5-1%, which is for all reasonable applications a "don't care" level and makes other features (see above) a priority.I also don't like split tracks because that's pretty much the same mixing of data (AudoCD contents) and metadata (track boundaries and names). Keeping a separate cue sheet is a simple, clean and logical decoupling.
I see, thank you for this answer rwx ! The only problem I have with cue files is when I add a custom tag (a rating one), I read somewhere that cue file isn't compatible with custom tags, it's a pity ^^But I found a way by creating APL files for each track on foobar2000 http://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_input_monkeyAnyway, thank you again for all this work =)
[鱒処] Mas-dokoro\2007.05.20 あかねさす紫の桜 [例大祭4]This album doesn't have the date in its tags. Should be 2007. Other albums do have it.One more thing regarding this website. It doesn't work correctly with FF 30 (and it didn't with 29 as well). When I try to post a comment using anonymous profile it reloads the page instead. Posting from IE11.
Looks like you are the second person to step on that. First time was some years ago. Found it:http://www.tlmc.eu/2012/03/tlmc-v13-20120229.html?showComment=1331397149637#c7181651645309110840tl;dr - enable third-party cookies (make them expire on browser close if you're paranoid like me).
The same goes for many other albums as well, which is why I wrote this bash script to deal with it by inserting the year numbers from the directory names into the cuesheets: http://pastebin.com/kcVQvT77 (it does the same for artist names, you can comment that part out if you want)If you don't have a Linux/Unix environment available it should work with Cygwin on Windows. I recall the existence of a similar script in some kind of Windows-friendly macro language but I can't seem to find the comment again (it was either here or on nyaa).If there's demand for it I'll consider creating packages with prepatched sheets.
Deja vu intensifies, I also recall some other script to put data from file names into cuesheets.Btw, the logic in this script seems somewhat strange to me: a CD may have various performers (like an IOSYS album) and they all will be replaced with the circle name. Proper full-blown automagical rename would be hard and annoying to code, though.
>enable third-party cookiesI already have them enabled>Proper full-blown automagical rename would be hard and annoying to codeSo I guess we can just report all errors/blanks in tags to you and wait for next release
I was mainly concerned with reducing clutter in the long, long list of artists and the artist grouping from the directory structure does a pretty good job at that. But I can imagine not everyone liking this behavior.Found another script by the way (though not the one I was talking about): https://bucko909.livejournal.com/13248.htmlUses an external source rather than directory names. May yield better results, but probably a bit harder to use and more likely to break or screw something up at some point.
Another somewhat major issue is that some albums aren't properly tagged by Album Artist, i.e. circle name. Sometimes the field is just blank, which makes searching by circle difficult, and sometimes it's filled with the Artist field, which screws everything up if Artist had the performer name. ZYTOKINE/CYTOKINE in the current pack has this problem, for example.Thanks for your work, by the way. Is there any menial labor that could be partitioned out to make things easier?
>Is there any menial labor that could be partitioned out to make things easier?Thanks for the offer.I don't think there is anything metadata-related that everyone wants to get done and everyone agrees on how it should be done. In short, if you see something that you think could be done better then you do it the way you think is right and I will link to your results.

More than one year without my dope. :(
I hope a new TLMC comes soon...
