Unfortunanately, not all tracks avaible in PSX version have been extracted.
Intro, Jail, Meanwhile in Pirates Ship, alternate ending, outro.
Due to hardcoded voices or something.
They are remastered from PS2 version, as many others, see below.

A source file of PSX rip was VAG, probably 4 bit or 8 bit ADPCM, named THEME.vag on Rayman 2 PSX CD.

If somebody wants to unpack separated loops, use ADPCM Player v1.44h, open THEME.VAG from R2 PSX disc and set, interleave to 800.
Unfortunately I discovered that after release this rip.
It would spare me lot of time.

All files in quality are untouched (except Overworld - remastered). All files are exactly the same as in PSX files.

Exclusive Revolution tracks and others remastered (beta)
There are also new releases of high quality soundtrack made by me. In future I'll thinking about joining all avaible music from this, and other releases after remastering with Audio & Music Lab 2016 Premium. It is professional, very good and special software for this purposes which recovers most of lost CD quality in old 22kHz soundtracks taken from game files.

Main topic:

Here are the files from close to final stage of project.
Result of remastering 22kHz files is gorgeous!

There are diffrent versions of the same files inside. I looking for reviews which ones are the best.

Pick your file, and wait a little to buffer, and then you'll see timer, then music should start.
If you don't see timer for a long time, download file.

Here you can download all files in one zip archive:

Version on Google is rather more recent and updated.
Probably Jdownloader may download all files simultaneously there

PSX files unpacking, arranging, trimming;
How it was done?


Files have been extracted from PS1(X) version of Rayman 2. It guarantees the best quality from all previous releases of soundtrack. Files are, as originally - 44khz, 4-5 parts of songs are 37800Hz, as from source, they're joined together in a few places. This version is the shortest from all game releases, but have been arranged well, I guess, so quality should reward that. And some songs are completed to Revolution.
There may be some shotcomings in arrangement, I have a to-do list even, but I thinking about some ways of joining songs from other releases together.

First of all, I received 1 hour WAV file, which contained parts of all songs cutted in a lot of small pieces separated by <80 ms silence, scattered in all file. Also there was a few 37800Hz WAV files which contained few parts of songs more, and repeated parts, I had to sort it out. Droolpirat extracted all of it. Greetings to him and thanks for responses and discussion in this topic.

That was so many work and days for joining and arrange all of it together. That was complicated and exhausted and I tried to do this well. But it was worth of it I guess.
Quality is the best from all previous releases. Reaper DAW has been used at a certain stage for silence detection, but lot of work I made manually.

Separated segments/loops with names

I attaching file projects from Audacity with parts of songs which have been joined as final files then. Maybe they will be usefull for someone one day. It's something like 1,5 GB in total... I don't wish to anyone work like this...
It's just separated parts of songs/loops from initial stage of project.

I looked at Reaper too for silence detection and found it either cut too much or too little. It sounds like you put hell of a lot of work and research into this, and I'm really happy to see it completed! It's totally worth it for the extra sound quality; so now we have the high quality "abridged" soundtrack to go with the complete soundtrack on the main page!

I spliced the audio files together too, but just cut the silence in the order the tracks happened to be in and joined similar sounding parts. What you did looks WAY more properly put together.

32 minutes left of downloading... can't wait to listen.

Yeah, that was really a hell of a lot of work...
I had to find good settings for Reaper, they wasn't perfect, but ok.
Reaper worked acceptable when tracks contained longer silence instead 80-100 ms.
That was one of steps to make everything proper.
That's a pity that we haven't communicate each other in production of this. Would be faster.
Process of arrange of tracks is quite unfinished still, but it will be finished. I don't know when.
Some tracks can be replaced in Raytunes, few are completed.
Can you say something about quality of Overworld?

Sounds pretty dang amazing, I have to say. I think the arrangement of the splices is spot on, listening to the first five tracks.

As far as Overworld.... eh. It sounds like it lost a lot of fidelity somehow, especially noticeable with the harpsichord. I like the loop you did with it though.

Either way, thank you for all your work!

edit: what tracks are left to do? I can help.

I'd say the 3rd one "sounds" the best, as it's the original, and the 1st one is the best in terms of looping. I know what you were trying to go for with the first one (for more clarity in the highs and a more 'thumping' bass) but the averse effects of whatever plugin you're using put way too much damage on the sound quality overall. I don't know what the heck happened with the 2nd one... the second loop of that sounds like the mids and lows were gutted with an EQ. Not good. I hear quite a bit of unwanted aliasing too with the highs. If you wanted my opinion on these.

Here is an (unprocessed) looped version I made: https://www.dropbox.com/s/beu1izggpb8p4 ... .flac?dl=0. Just copied and pasted and threw a fade at the end.

The rest of the soundtrack does sound really well put together, good work.

Hey, I appreciate the work you done on the soundtrack and it sounds great, but I don't get this rigamarole with ranking the Overworld track(?)

From Droolie's yeah. The "third one" I don't know why is an option because it's basically not done (not looped), and has an unrelated jingle at the end.

Loops are not problem, sound is much more difficult to assess.
This rigamarole is because I collecting opinions about what refreshed version is the best to put in final release in future, and with which version I should work then yet. I worked with this refreshing very long. Loops are a piece of cake in this case.
Your tests are covering also with my observations. You should have not bad soundsystem :-)
Community! Feel free with yours opinions!
Thank you.

Well my opinion is to use zero plugins or processing that alters the sound other than simple cuts and edits to preserve how the game's sound was originally intended. And the processing in those examples sounded pretty bad, to put it bluntly.

I agree with you but 37800Hz parts and Overworld deserve for better quality.
But you said that third version is better than original. And it's unfinished in sound too, but still better than rest, right?

Postby dogman91 » Thu Sep 25, 2014 8:24 pm

It's the best out of those three options. I wouldn't mess with the files. 37800hz sounds pretty dang close to 44.1khz, if not indistinguishable. Better quality is good yeah, but like I said the processing in those examples didn't enhance the quality at all, so it's actually doing the opposite. You can't just throw a shitty plugin on something and it's automatically better. Even with plugins costing around $1000 (such as: http://www.waves.com/bundles/platinum?g ... 7Aodl1sAYw) you can make the wrong EQ choices and irreversibly damage the original audio for the worse.

From these three options where original also was. So some progress is.
Yes, I know that it's hard to not just more damage than enchance. But everything is possible.
Still, uneven quality is audible to me. The hardest part of enchancing for me is just reference sound for everyone.

That link is down.

Out of couriosity, why not use free file hosters like, MediaFire or MEGA? I'd prefer MEGA because I get there the full 100Mbps bandwidth :P
