>>SILENT HILL 2<<
COMPLETE SOUNDTRACK


This Complete Soundtrack has every ambient song in the game! 30 tracks, and 79:31 minutes of run time. All are composed by Akira Yamaoka and Mastered by me, Fungo. This is in no way official or at all done by Konami.  This is just a fan compiled soundtrack.

Below is a collection of all the music I missed and never made it to the Complete Soundtrack.  I'm gonna add it here so that you can further complete your collection.

[PRISON ENEMY ENCOUNTER]
When you encounter an enemy in the prison.
[PAINTING ROOM]
Plays in the Historical Society Painting Room.
[BUG ROOM]
In the room where the flashlight goes out.

How I made the SH2 Complete Soundtrack:
The Silent Hill 2 Complete Soundtrack was pretty easy. I record the music in-game through the PS2's high quality Optical Light sound output to a digital mixer. I record them all into WAVS at the highest possible quality. I record each individual "variation" by pausing the game and waiting 5 minutes. A certain area can have up to 11 "variations" in the music, so I record each into 11 separate 5 minute files, then after all the recording is done, I take each file and mix them together using Cool Edit Pro 2 to master the track perfectly. Mastering the album as a whole, making the music seem seamless (no breaks or pause between tracks) is a bit hard (I usually do this at the end of all the recording and mastering). Note: I do not play the game while recording this soundtrack because the sound effects can be turned down, but not turned off, so it ruins the quality of the soundtrack, and I do not think it is acceptable when other people recording their "own" complete soundtracks have the sound effects of them running and smashing demon dogs in the face with axes; it just shows laziness. There are many songs, in the SH2 soundtrack that are only active against a certain door, or in a certain hidden area, so scouting out those spots where the music would change was kind of hard. I believe that my Complete Soundtracks are the best, and I stand by that. Not only have I put countless hours upon hours into it, but I also used some expertise of mine to edit and master each "variation" individually (which is really hard work and gets very sickening). But I love doing it. Thanks for caring.

Song "variations" altogether recorded to make this soundtrack?
There were a little over 120 variations which were edited into the 30 tracks available. That makes 4 different song variations per track on average.
