I know this newsbit isn't about the music composed in-game, but has anyone listened to the samples of that? I did, and must say I was slightly dissappointed. Boy, you sure can tell the difference between a live orchestra and a synthesized one. In some games it's not so noticable, depending on what instruments and what pitch the melody is in. In the case of the Witcher music, it sounded very synthesized on most tracks. While Gothic, which was also synthesized, still sounds great to me, The Witcher's songs just don't inspire.

I know that despite the growing media attention and popularity this is still a project by a small developer, so I didn't expect music on par with Gothic 3, or any other live recordings, but still, I'm hoping they put more effort into the gameplay and graphics engine than they did the music.
