"MORTAL KOMBAT ARMAGEDDON" OMEGA SOUNDTRACK RIP v.1.0

by T-rex


Greetings to any MK music fans out there. T-rex here,though I also go by NucleaRaptor,Shuriken and a variety of other names.

If you have any comments,questions or suggestions concerning my rip,my AIM nickname is sladetheraptor.
I'm pretty much always online,so if you want to,drop me a couple of lines.
Feedback is very much appreciated. =)
If you manage to identify any of the Unknown tracks,please let me know right away.
If you notice anything wrong with the rip (typos,hiccups,etc.),no matter how small,let me know right away so that I can fix it.

The purpose of this release is to provide the MK fans with the most high-quality and the most comprehensive Mortal Kombat soundtrack rip to date. That's why I nicknamed it "Omega". =) It's the biggest and most ambitious rip that I've ever worked on.
I'm extremely anal when it comes to MK music,but I'm also a full-time college student,not to mention a lazy fucking bastard,which is why this beast took me over a year to make.
Sorry about that. =) I hope the end result was worth the wait.

Keep in mind,however,that my ripping technique is extremely primitive.
I record the video as I play the game,then rip the audio from said video and edit it.
Therefore,it's impossible for me to record certain tracks like,say,the Konquest cutscenes without the interference of all of the sounds and voices,as there is no way to eliminate them in the cutscenes.
I did my absolute best,but this rip is not,and I repeat,NOT complete and is subject to improvement.
If you are a ripper and are willing to contribute to this project by ripping the tracks that are not properly represented here directly from the game itself,I would be immensely grateful.

THE RUNDOWN:

DISC 1 - BATTLE ARENAS
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=CLT2LAYD
The heart of the soundtrack. These are the tracks that play during one-on-one fighting.
I was a bit reluctant to include the Nethership,Hell's Foundry,the Sky Temple and the Falling Cliffs tracks,since they really belong in a Deception soundtrack rip,but I decided to rip them anyway for completion's sake.

DISC 2 - KONQUEST
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=W06M6FP2
You'll find the background music from Konquest mode in here.
Tracks 22,23 and 24 really belong on the Miscellaneous disc. The reason for that is that I haven't actually heard these tracks featured in the actual Konquest mode. These were found by dmkf when he ripped a bunch of sound data from the game's code. They are,however,variations of some of the Konquest tracks,and as such,are placed here.
A little note about "Reptile variations" - the reason I named them that way is because of that distinct use of flutes. Throughout the series,the tracks featuring those flutes are usually the Living Forest tracks,which most of the time happens to Reptile's turf. Hence the name.

DISC 3 - MOTOR KOMBAT
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=4MMRRJQ1
Pretty self-explanatory.

DISC 4 - BONUS - SHAO KAHN'S TREASURE CHEST
http://www.megaupload.com/?d=HMKDGCOC
Ah,the most meaty and delicious part of this rip. =)
This is the reason why this rip took so long to make.
Now this requires a bit of an explanation.
Here,you will find miscellaneous tracks that don't fit anywhere else. Tracks from menus,Kreate-a-Fighter mode and others.
But that's not all!

You will also find some completely new tracks,previously unheard before. A lot of these were found pretty much by accident while ripping the sound data directly from the code.

Quite a big portion of this disc is devoted to unique tracks featured in the Konquest mode cutscenes. In particular,tracks 12 through 47 are all from Konquest. As I mentioned before,there is no way to eliminate the sound effects and the voices during the cutscenes without muting the music along with them. There was an option of significantly reducing the voices to a near hiss,but the few people I talked to about this seemed to have decided against this solution. Therefore,I decided to record them as is. You can still hear the music despite the voices.

I also included recordings of some of the character endings from the Arcade mode. These particular endings also have unique music. Some of them feature cleaner samples of tracks from the Konquest cutscenes. Unfortunately,most of these end abruptly (the endings are only about 40-50 seconds each,after all) and feature the narrator's voice on the background,since I've found no way to get rid of it.
A lot of the endings share music.
For example,the track labeled as "KAF Ending" also plays during Havik's and Mokap's endings. The reason I chose this particular one is because it's the longest of the three and therefore,represents a more complete version of the track.

Finally,I've also included the recordings of some of the character Bio Cards from the MKA Special Edition Disc. Again,there was no way to get rid of all the sounds and voices,but you can still hear the unique tracks used as background music. Many of the Bio Cards feature music taken from Deception and other games in the series. For the most part,I have tried to exclude those and only leave the ones that have the music unique to Armageddon.

ENJOY!

Hey T-Rex

NICE WELL DONE. I have finish to listen and I found nothing wrong. All perfect

But... There always a but right?

Is there a way to Rip Fatalities song? You know, that Ta da da, specially at the end. I think that is the only part that is really missing.
