That's just the tracks Jasper Byrne contributed, not the full soundtrack. They are hot-ass tracks though, Miami is fresh as shit

@Winternet: the whole thing is also on bandcamp, but it isn't purchase-able. The four songs are the only ones available for purchase, which sucks because I really wanted MOON's tracks. Bastards.

How are people still not realising the soundtrack is available inside the game directory (as HQ .ogg audio files) once you purchase it from Steam? I get that is hasn't been advertised as coming with the game, but it's been mentioned quite a few times around the forum. Go get it!

You can buy it there if you want to support the composer.

Trying to tag the files properly at the moment (can't stand it when music files appear untagged and without picture in my mp3 player... I know, I know...), but there are more songs (22) in the game directory than on the soundcloud page (20)...

"Turf" by El Huervo is split into "Turf Intro" and "Turf Main" in the game directory and "Perturbator" (game directory) might be "Venegance" by Perturbator. But I have no idea to which Artists "Static" and "ItsSafeNow" belong...

Anybody any ideas?

QFT!

Miami may be the first video game track that will find a place in my iPod playlist.

@BestUsernameEver: It comes with the game. They're .ogg files in the Steam directory. Of course, you'll have to sort them, rename them, and tag them yourself (as mentioned above), but they're there if you buy the game from Steam.

That's cool, thanks. Even still though, I'd like to support the artists more directly by buying a real soundtrack.

Standout tracks on this one. I like the ensemble of artists on display here. Should be a contender for best ost.

This might have usurped the throne from Max Payne 3. "Daisuke" by El Huervo is my favorite.

Just pitched some money to his Bandcamp page, now to crank the FLAC version in my headphones.

That's nice and all but I'd really like to see them put out a download with a paypal option or something of the sort. I would really love to help these guys get a bit of extra money in their pockets. Both musicians and designers alike. This game was great, left me on the edge of seat and I do not regret a single second of it.

Just wish they'd put up more options for me to support them.

This soundtrack reminds me of some tracks from the Killer7 soundtrack (Masafumi Takada). It's badass!

If you guys like the Sun Araw you should check On Patrol. The album sounds like Michael Mann directing Escape From New York.

The lone survivor sound track is on the site as well. That sweet song for snoopkin with scoops is on there.

This is all I can think of when I read the phrase as snoopin with scoops.

HAH! That made my day!

Holy shit, Sun Araw is on the soundtrack? Even if it's just two songs, this can not come to Macs/PS3 soon enough.

@HarlechQuinn: I just did the same thing! After comparing the game files with the SoundCloud playlist, I figured "perturbator.ogg" was Miami Disco by Perturbator, probably because there's a song called Miami by Jasper Byrne that got the miami.ogg name (actually miami2.ogg). Static is just background noises that play during some conversations in the game, and It's Safe Now is a song by Scattel, it's #21 on SoundCloud. To The Top is a song by Scattle that seems to have been left out of the game and the official soundtrack, but it's in the game files, and it's a helluva song too.

Man this soundtrack is great. I'm loving it. And loving the game!

@HarlechQuinn: Just following up because I didn't see elsewhere in the thread, track 5 (Perturbator - Vengeance) wasn't in my Steam directory at all. The version on soundcloud is short, but I settled on getting the version listed here: http://aphasiarecords.bandcamp.com/album/nocturne-city-ep

(Also, I got turf by doing "cat TurfIntro.mp3 TurfMain.mp3 > Turf.mp3" and then running "mp3val -f -nb". At least on my Mac, that was the laziest way to get it done.)

How does the quality of the .ogg files compare to the MP3 soundtrack sold on Steam? I just learned that one cannot actually buy the soundtrack without buying the game first, since Steam technically treats it as DLC. It would be convenient (and somewhat ironic) if I could get a soundtrack of equal or greater quality by simply buying the game, though...

Digital Deluxe version of HM2 includes both MP3 and FLAC, although it's just a 6-song remix EP in that case.

The OGGs included with the game are VBR at around 200kbps, which is probably more than adequate for most people (IIRC, quality wise would be roughly the same as MP3 at 224kbps). That said, if you going to convert to, e.g., MP3, you'd probably be better off getting the soundtrack DLC (lossy-lossy conversions rarely sound great).
