TLMC v.20 PRE-RELEASE post

The bad news: v.20 is still several months away.
The good news: v.20 is only several months away.
This is NOT YET a release, but we are fairly close. Here's how you can help:

I will be posting a list of albums I've managed to collect from various sources so far with updates from time to time until the torrent release.
- If there is something in the list that should not be there (unrelated albums), say so.
- If you have something that is not in the list (and not in the latest tlmc, of course), do share. Make sure to check these things first:
--- Ctrl-F my latest list and the comment section of this post to check if your album is not a duplicate. Search for smallest unique substrings, in case spelling is slightly different or wrong.
--- Good scans are always in short supply. Even if the album is in the list it might be missing scans. If you have the files, err on the side of asking/sharing.
--- I'm monitoring doujinstyle, so no need to announce or offer copies of their new uploads (unless yours is better, for example +scans or +log or 16/44). However, I could miss something out of their ~16k links, especially if it was not marked as touhou, so a double-check would be appreciated.
- If you can download from baidu, then check if acgjc.com touhou subsection has anything new.
- If you can download from baidu, please reupload links that I or anyone else will occasionally post here.
- If you cannot download from baidu, but have some baidu links of new material, then post and hope someone who can will reupload them.
The "new album" list could not only grow, but also shrink, if I discover files that fail decoding, have wrong content, are unrelated, etc. I don't expect many such problems, though.

In several weeks due time I'll add a list of all files and an archive of cuesheets. I'm still adding digital covers for the new albums and would like to go through all of the old albums without scans as well, if time permits.
I stripped personal comments temporarily appended to directory names, so some entries in the "new album" list may appear as duplicates of v.19, no need to point that out. This is not a problem: these are either new scans, additional scans, alternate scans, extra logs, or simply dupes I didn't compare yet.

If you're aware of a production-quality program that can extract JPEG content from TIFF files without bitmap decode-encode steps, let me know.

Every album that is assembled from separate tracks will have a "REM COMMENT built from tracks" or similar comment in its cuesheet. This is not bad and doesn't mean much on its own, it's mostly for bookkeeping purposes. Every single album built from tracks that had a single-file duplicate (with maybe one or two, literally, exceptions) was either content-wise bit-identical to its dupe or merely shifted by difference in drive offsets.

The smallest addressable unit in cuesheets is a frame, which is 1/75-th of a second or 588 samples (2352 bytes). If any length of a track in the album is not an integer amount of frames, then every track in that album cuesheet gets a sample-precision start and end comments, which makes it possible to recover exact audio data content of the files used, should you ever want it. It also means that either (far more likely) files were mastered directly for digital distribution, bypassing CD creation step, or (far less likely) some shitty software was used in the creation of that CD rip.

About 5% of files are problematic, with either sampling depth of more than 16 bits or sampling frequency of more than 44.1-48 kHz. These are mostly bandcamp releases. I'm still undecided on how to proceed with them. Will add a list a bit later.

If you were ever under impression that flac or lossless in general means untouched CD audio rip, sans an occasional artifact or two, then I'm here to disappoint you. At least one album that almost made it into v.20, but got accidentally caught by me, was postprocessed by the ripper. For more details you may read a comment that alerted me of this fact here, search for "destroyed". I downloaded both versions, the difference is clearly audible. Thanks to the "people" who decide to do this as if the audio weren't already loud to the point of clipping often enough, we can't be sure albums are really correct CD rips if they don't contain rip logs. Old Share/PD rips are less suspect because the average intelligence on the internet never goes up. I don't think it is a frequent occurrence, but still, if you reshare something then DON'T DISCARD THE RIP LOGS. I might try to scan all albums with cuetools if I find its batch mode, although rare CDs would naturally have no db submissions to compare against.

I still don't have a clear policy on sub-titles, which are album names transliterated into english (frequently in uppercase) and appended to the main title. For now I follow local consistency rules.

Many event labels are missing (trailing "[]") or have inconsistent spelling, this also creates perceived dupes. Ignore, it will go away soon.

I have an idea about a secondary supplementary torrent, which would include non-touhou albums of circles if they make up significantly less than half of that circle repertoire, so that by combining both you would get complete discography of a circle. It is definitely not happening any time soon. However, I don't delete unrelated albums I download (or find in and remove from the torrent), just safely put them away, so keep that in mind.


The comment page has a "Load more" javascript link at the bottom when there are too many comments. To view all comments click that link until it disappears. It loads 200 comments at a time. Yes, I know it sucks and no, I can't do anything about it - it's a blogger platform issue beyond my control.

  1. Thank you.

    If I remember correctly, there is at least one album in TLMC that has 24bit depth (Dxtliant Child - Utopia Far East), is it also an issue? Or is it about merging them in a single file?

    I am all up for the idea of another torrent with unrelated material.

    1. When there was only one such album it was just a curious outlier, when there is suddenly a hundred of them the situation becomes a giant mess. Many albums are piles of files of two, three or more different combinations of settings, so I'd have to resample, which is (technically) not a lossless process.
      More importantly, keeping them promotes the insane idea of using higher-than-CD-quality sampling rate/bit depth.

      Delete
    2. Innocent Key included some 24bit tracks with their IK-24 DVD.

      Here's few missing albums, data track for SSEB-0002 and some secure rips with logs of albums that are already on TLMC, but without logs: mega folder YVgQECaA#GB2JcjoL_0ksp6EwpqE7GQ

  2. To Reverse:
    ARAM-0028~9, ARAM-0032~3, ARAM-2108 from your last 3-batch are missing. I've got the audio from another source, but their scans are heavily compressed.

    1. Idk why onedrive keeps skipping my uploads, but if their scans are low quality(300KB) then we got the same archive. Uploaded them anyway.

    3. True. Flac is fine. I selectively downloaded your torrent (found a more complete iosys one), so dupe checker did not match that album.
