[HL1 Song] Beta Track 9 Re-creation mp3
« on: January 29, 2006, 11:27:01 AM »

This is an mp3 re-creation of the beta version of Half-Life's track 9 song. I took the audio from three different pre-release HL videos and pieced them together. I then edited the volume and normalized everything to make it nicer sounding and generally smooth out the splices.

The end result is pretty decent, in my opinion. I think the only real noticeable issues are that the second audio source is lower quality then the rest and in mono, and the third audio source still contains a lot of ingame sound effects from the original video, but nothing horribly distracting (In fact, the sound effects are pretty sparse considering it's coming directly from a large montage of ingame scenes). However, I'm pretty sure this is essentially what the full track would have been in its entirety. Otherwise I was just messing around to see if I could pull this off relatively well.

Heh, is pretty cool.  A shame about the sound effects, but of course there isn't anything you can do about that.  Well, perhaps a real audio pro with advanced software could single out the individual sounds and remove them, but I don't think anyone here is a Hollywood sound designer or anything...  :)

Mmmmmmmmm this song rocks. I LOVE the music in Half-Life, since I am a huge industrial fan, and a huge fan of HL. And I like the sfx, you should try to recreat them as well. I think you could get rid of the sparse sfx pretty easily.

Copy and paste the 'bumb bumb - bumb bumb bumb bumb' part one after another and only leave the sound effects in on unique parts of the song.

I'm sorry to bump this but, can someone take the elevator sounds, gun, plus grunt sounds out? I want this to replace the one in Half-Life 2.

That's impossible.

Well, maybe not impossible, but extremely extremely improbable. It would much simpler to try and get a hold of the original track, if it exists.
