Soul Reaver OST v7

I have went back and refined the last version of the soundtrack and produced a much more compact, "mini" version, if you like. This version is half the size of the v6 OST and contains only single looped tracks as opposed to the double looped versions in the previous one. The reason behind this was, since the Necropolis appeared to have two loops which are slightly different, it seemed all the rest had the same setup. However, after doing some research, I have come to a conclusion that this was not the case for the rest of the tracks, whose second loop was identical to the first and thus redundant. These new single looped tracks can be easily looped within the same family (Underworld, Necropolis, etc.) or just looped flawlessly on their own. There are also some other slight changes which you can find in the read me file. Hope you enjoy!

Note: You need 7zip to open the archive. 

Update: There was a typo in the back cover, thanks to Benoit Smith for alerting me.

    1. I had the same problem at first.
      I recommend you to use only the 7 zip program, not any other like win rar. It is free, and only 1mb.
      With the 7 zip program running, open only the first file (the .001) The whole content should be displayed and easily extracted, provided both files are in the same location. If this fails, your download is corrupt, just download them again. Good luck!

  2. I just downloaded this Soundtrack, and I did not expected it to be as detailed and specific. I checked the contents and read thoroughly the Text file in it. It's very impressive. Being also a LOK eternal fan, I truly want to thank you for sharing with us, and for all the time and care you invested in this. This is a true gem. Be happy.

  3. Yeah, sorry for the late reply. 7zip is my choice for archiving files, winrar is no longer updated anymore.

  5. What version is this from? PS1, PC, or DC? I've been playing through the DC version today, and, call me crazy, but it seems to sound a bit better than this production-wise, like they were able leave more data in the songs for the DC version. Or am I just hearing things? Thanks for the album, btw.

    1. This is playstation version. I do have DC version but it does not sound as good through emulation, unfortunately. I think Kurt said he had to recreate the soundtrack for DC so it can sound a bit different.

  6. Greetings, and thanks for your great work! Please pardon my ignorance, but is there no "Ozar Midrashim" in that package?

    1. Besides, I'm afraid the titles in the back cover are in need of an update: there are now 62 tracks in the 2nd folder ;-)

    2. Ozar Midrashim belongs to Information Society and does not play during gameplay. Thus it was omitted. You can get it elsewhere.

      Thanks for spotting the typo, just forgot to adjust a few numbers.
