I'm curious. Can't find this info online (lost my CD, unfortunately). I keep reading that Liberi Fatali was the first orchestra recording to be used in a video game. First, is this true? Second, which orchestra performed the piece and who conducted it?

No, it wasn't the first in Japan (some examples are Sakura Wars 1 and 2, and Grandia 1), and The Lost World, which had the first fully orchestrated soundtrack, was before it as well.

The first game I know of that used a full orchestra in the game itself was "Return to Zork" which was released in the US for PC in 1993 and then later for PC-FX in japan.

Wasn't Manji Maru on the PC Engine a full orchestra for some of the pieces?

The booklet doesn't mention a certain orchestra (only a list of musicians) but the conductor was Katsuaki Nakatani.

You sure that actually used one?

"It was the first Final Fantasy to use a full, live orchestra."

Didn't the end of FFVII have a full live orchestra? End credits and all that...

Cuz this poster apparently just sent me an email @rpgfan.com, and I apparently just told him that, among other things.

Yes, it was frantic fact-checking. Thanks to all. Maybe it was just some union-organized orchestra or something similar, but the conductor's name is important.

I'm quickly recording a one-hour radio show for WQED in Pittsburgh about vg music, and this helps a lot.

Yeah, I'm sure. I used to listen to it all the time because it was redbook audio. I would just pop it into my cd player. I can upload a sample.

Pretty sure it was sequenced.  The entire FF7 OST is in that PSF set.  No left-out tracks at all. :)

The choir was real though, obviously.

Hmmm, well that's kinda odd. I wonder if it was written for the game then? That could explain it...

Yeah, everything in FF7 was digital and even the choir they combined into the digital music for OWA sounds funky and dated these days, I think.

The choir was never exactly top quality. If I remember correctly, there was only four people credited in it (which isn't even technically a chorus).

True, it wasn't the greatest quality, but it had Masashi Hamauzu and he is the Sqeenix god.
