As while some people say the music is pretty mixed. There are some really good tracks that should make people realize that it's not as bad as they say it is.

- Club is really chill and upbeat. While some would say it's unfitting, it fits fine with the cozy style of the level.

- Spectre Island is also pretty good. Probably my favorite song in the game.

I think the real culprit in the music being "bad" is not the compositions (which most are really good), it's just the instrument taste and note pitch and volume. A simple change of that could fix up most of the OST.

The only songs that I actually really find that bad is China, and Cartel.

For now, I've simply recorded the music long enough with Audacity so that it loops, and I cut the end point of the song exact where the songs loop.

I'll try to get the music finished up in the next few days.

I'm debating what format to use for it. I'll probably be .ogg as I don't like .mp3, and .wav is too bulky.

There's a few tracks I really like, with SPECTRE Island being my top pick. Some have grown on me, such as China. Everyone has their own taste, so certainly no one can ever agree on what's good and what's not so good. But overall, it's a pretty decent soundtrack.

If I knew how to extract USFs from N64 games, I'd totally do that with GoldFinger 64. I assume it'd be the same way as extracting from GoldenEye.

That way, you can have lossless quality music without the bulky filesize because of it not being streamed.

USF isn't an extract.
The format reduces a ROM + savestate as small as possible and lets the game play its own audio itself. It's not extracted audio--it's emulation.

Oh. So it's basically just the part of the rom that includes the audio files to emulate?

Even then, using a USF-based version of the OST could result in easier to make perfect looped streams of the game audio without having to manually crop it, which would save time.

Seeing how these are made from savestates, it as least gives me in indication on how to exactly make them. I'm probably going to research more and try to make a functional USF out of this game so I can quickly export it to a streamed format with a program like Foobar or such.

Is there any talk to release the complete soundtrack of GF64? I have the complete soundtrack for both PD and GE on my phone for background listening when playing other shooters and I would love to add GF's soundtrack.

There is a YouTube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQD28r5nMqU&t=4224s) that has a lot of the soundtrack but missing certain songs as the death theme, the multiplayer-only songs, and "X" or "Ending" versions of existing songs; also this video contains a few hiccups in the soundtrack.

It would be nice to get MP3 versions of the complete soundtrack! Very Happy

I second that, already have a ton of OST's on my phone including GE/PE and would be amazing to get a zipped up pack of all of GF64's songs in HQ.


Edit: I took the video that guy uploaded and did some splitting in Audacity, got them all split up into their own .mp3 files so people can easily add them to their music libraries.

Note: I originally intended this for myself so there's a "gf64" extension on each one, just remove it by editing the name of the mp3 and you're good.

That's actually normal even on real hardware. For some reason, it seems like a lot of the instruments are only or mostly on the left channel, it's not as noticeable if you play it on N64 far away on your TV but when playing it with headphones...

You can check it here, specially easy to listen to it on the first mission. It's really annoying to listen to with headphones. - https://youtu.be/VxVpEuTxXlQ?t=3m44s
