    Arrow What kind of music would you prefer?

    Yep, the thread's title speaks for itself...
    What do you like the most, the original soundtrack or the custom music?

    In my opinion, I would rather have my custom soundtrack of psychedelic trance songs when I race. The races are hardly exciting with the original soundtrack,
    plus it gets tiring and annoying very quickly listening to "Machine Gun", "Swagger" or "Frontline" over and over again.

    So... What do you prefer? The original soundtrack in the game or your own collection of music applied in the game?

    And IF you prefer custom music, what kind of music genre do you use in WipEout HD?

    I just wanna see what everyone here on the zone has in opinion about it

    Cheers

    I only liked some of the tracks in the original HD soundtrack, so I made a custom playlist and use that. It's still got some of the original tracks in there from a number of the WipEouts over the years, plus a mixture of some of my favourite drum and bass, techno and dubstep tracks.

    I can agree with you there. I liked some music from the original, like "Marmite" from Two Fingers.

    But it still wouldn't hurt to have some variety after using the original for awhile.

    If you invest a lot of time into the game I think most people will find that they like a change in aural scenery. While the default music is nice enough and suits the game, ultimately I think it's more fun when you play to a song you like and as part of a wider selection of songs isn't forced through your ears every other race.

    I don't think it's a matter of opinion, really, although some people will invariably be the exception to the rule.

    I tend to go for dubstep and liquid dnb (not in that order) but theres a slew of other styles and genres mixed in there too, everything from breakbeat to psytrance and synthpop anything that gets the blood pumping essentially.

    Queen, Linkin Park etc, I've used anything, I'm sure I've even used Chemical Plant Zone's theme at one point.

    Trance and Dance songs are my way to go; what would I do without them?
    Even I like some songs of the default soundtrack, my main preference is my favourite genres (my videos speak for themselves ).

    I have mostly Intelligent Drum and Bass from the early 2000s (LTJ Bukem, Seba, Mykra, etc.) I also have early 90s jungle tunes (Orca's "Intalect" and "Tranquility to the Earth" and some others) and I also have some of my own musics...
    Here's an example of the Jungle I have in there:

    I've raced to rap and thrash metal and found it to fit.
