The maestros at OverClocked ReMix are at it once again, taking cherished videogame music and creating new pieces with it. Though OC ReMix has taken on Final Fantasy previously, most of those works were centered around a particular game in the series. Audio Engineering: A Tribute to Cid, which was released today,spans the Final Fantasy series, with remixes based on the musical themes of the kind-of-sort-of-recurring character Cid.
Cids from every main numbered title between Final Fantasy II and Final Fantasy XII are represented in Audio Engineering, as well as those from Final Fantasy Type-0 and Final Fantasy Mystic Quest. Since there are a few spinoffs represented, it is a bit disappointing that the most badass Cid (from Final Fantasy Tactics) did not get any love on the album, but considering it is a collection of 13 remixes and offered for download completely free of charge, I’ll let it slide.
