I admit I'm hooked on this one.

Pay attention much? It's, you know, right in the first post.

anyone know id this was a concert recording done espacially for this game?
No as a musician I can assure that it is not anywhere near a real orchestra. It sounds like a midi orchestra. the horns always give it away. i have never heard believable horns without real sampling. It is good for a game though. I really enjoy the classical theme so much. It is just a very all around good presentation. I wish they did have a real orchestra playing the songs though. I am sure that would have been way out of budget for an ios game even one that is priced higher than most. It takes me back to my orchestra days. Especially the New World Symphony. That was always so much fun to play.

Agree. I've been playing the game with headphones on, and there are definitely some "synthy" sounds you can pick up on. This is what puzzles me about the $14.99 unlock price. It's not like they had to license the musical recordings.

The music is very enjoyable anyway.

But the title screen says "Licensed from Naxos Japan".

I lean towards it being some kind of mix of samples of real recordings and synth stuff. Maybe to make the game work a bit more smoothly? Some of the sections sound virtually indistinguishable from the real thing, but other parts and little bits like when they do the tempo changes suddenly get a lot more artificial. But since Square don't have a forum presence, unless someone spots an interview with the team behind this I guess we'll never know for sure...

Hey EightRooks - just wondering whether you finished the game, and if you did, about how long did it take you to complete (and unlock the remaining 17 songs)?
