Portal 2 Soundtrack Part 1

The Official Portal 2 Website points the way to the Portal 2 Music Page where they offer free downloads of volume one of Songs to Test By, the soundtrack to Portal 2, Valve's puzzle/platformer sequel. They say the 157 MB download is the "first of three downloadable aural stimulus packages." Word is: "Whether you're a mega-science corporation with decades of test experience, or a young start-up liberating your first test subject from non-testing with a chloroform-soaked rag, Aperture guarantees results. Wake up your test subject, open the chamber door, and press play--let Aperture's patent-pending rhythmic compliance enhancers do the rest."

Does this include the turret opera? That piece was awesome.

Nope - hopefully the Volume II download will have it. I'd also like to see a longer version of Background 5 (the 1-minute sound loop that plays in the game menu along with the video of Wheatley and the Spaaaace! core orbiting him after you finish the single-player mission).

Edit: No, no it doesn't. But this is only the first volume so hopefully the next one will include it.

You can pull all of the music straight out of the bsa using the toolset, or one of the various extractors. You may need to edit a couple of bytes in the bsa to allow the extractor to work however, but that's pretty trivial if you know how to use a hex editor and can follow step-by-step instructions.

Thank you, yea I'm good with a Hex editor.

There was some OK stuff in there, particularly in the old test chambers portion of the game. Not stuff that's going to rock your socks off, but stuff that fit very well within the context of the game... which is what music should do.

Thank you 'very' much Valve!!!

Thank you for taking care of your fans/community, in addition to not charging us for DLC like most other greedy bastard publishers do. Yeah Crytek you fall into that category now too, thanks to your friends at EA!

It's fantastic that Valve is giving this away for free. A lot of companies would charge for it


True. I actually bought the Orange Box cd Valve used to sell...
