Kindly asking for supprt of Nomad Soul (aka Omikron) music.

Post by Cutter » Wed Apr 27, 2005 2:27 am

Hello!

The music of this (underrated) game is great, but strangely no one has been able to rip it (yet). The soundtrack features a few tracks composed David Bowie hismelf, which makes it very interesting, but the other tracks (composed by David Cage) are also great.
I'm desperately looking for a way to rip the music from the .adp files present on the game's discs. I tried Game Audio Player and a few other rippers, I searched the Internet for an answer, but could only find this unanswered question. It seems that no one has find out how to rip these tracks. I can provide some .adp files if someone can offer a FTP or something.

Thanks.

Hmm, I remember looking at this game once, don't know why I haven't supported it yet.

Is there a demo? Or perhaps could you send us a front and back part of the archive?

We have a tool for that, but I won't be able to give that here, until tonight. (it's 10:00 AM over here).

Yes, I can send you some .adp files but I don't have a place where to put them on the web. I can send you them by e-mail if you want. :)

OK, use this program.

http://www.xentax.com/downloads/tools/filecutter.zip

Select an archive you wish to cut, then select a name for the file that will contain the front and the back pieces (it will give a suggestion as well).

Then select the size of each piece (256k, 512k or 1024k).

Click GO!

Then you can attach the created file (a zip) here!

Thanks! (You should have MultiEx Commander installed though, as the program uses dlls that are installed by MultiEx Commander).

And here is the original file, taken right off the game CD.

Hehe, ok, so the cutter is only necessary for files that are rather large...:) Thanks!

Ok, please use it on a large (music) file. I'll need more examples. :)

I find it hard to post samples on this forum because it is somewhat restrictive on file formats and file sizes. Wouldn't it be easier if I sent it to you via MSN? I can also set up a FTP server on my PC, but it won't be running all night, so you will have to download the files quite fast (lets say within the 3 next hours). :wink:
Tell me wat you think. :)

I had a look at some of those files, but I couldn't find anything in them that would suggest that they are an archive.

They are not archives. They are the audio files. Each file is a music.

I read a forum where you discussed this problem with others before. January 2004. You opened them as 8-bit ADPCM in Goldwave. Did you try Cool Edit Pro once, to open them ?

No, I didn't. I tried to install Adobe Audition (the successor of Cool Edit) but it it doesn't support Windows 98.
And yes, I tried to open the files with Goldwave as various formats, but the sound was awful (in fact it was quite hard to recognize the music).
