This is something I started putting together a little under a year ago, with the intention of just compiling all of Containment Breach's music tracks into a single download. However, after seeing LOL_DUDE's soundtrack, it began to highlight some issues with what I was doing as well.
The biggest sticking point with simply listening to the songs through the game’s files is that they’re all stored in compressed OGG files and are mostly shortened from their original sources in order to conserve space. It makes listening to the songs outside the game pretty underwhelming.
That’s where this soundtrack comes in. It not only compiles the songs together into a nice packaged download but also comes with a handful of improvements over the tracks heard in-game.
Some features include:
- All tracks remastered in high quality mp3 files.
- Tracks are (when possible) ripped directly from their original sources rather than simply taken from the game’s files. This means that several songs are now up to 1.5x longer than their counterparts featured in-game, allowing each track to feel more like real pieces of music.
- Proper metadata that appropriately credits artists and composers.
- Songs organized in a manner that reflects the game’s progression. (Intro —> LCZ —> HCZ —> EZ —> Finale)
- Decent sound mixing that gives tracks proper fade-outs and seamless loops (as long as you don't listen too hard). Some sound effects are also thrown into some songs to make them feel more organic.
As a soundtrack in itself, it’s a decent ambience collection with some more up-tempo songs thrown into the mix. A good listen if you’re into that kind of stuff.
If you don't feel like downloading the whole package you can listen to each file individually on dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/6jjaika0ges4 ... Rxp3qjKx6a
