Having never played 3D0, I'll have to go by the PC version.

Quasispace for its ethereality.
Yehat for sounding...inspirational.
Kzer-Za for being so ominous.

I have to agree with Captain_Archer, the DOS very sucks a whole lot if you grew up on the 3DO version, but, anyways

I do like the Yehat music, quite different from the bouncy techno stuff or basic drum beats.

I love the battle music, the siren thing is a great effect. The solar system music is not bad either.

But yes, Captain_Archer, when i heard the scream I flipped out, It sounds like a baby, only really pissed  Grin

Wow, could I argue hours about a dead system that never had any potential... but I won't.  I have more restraint.   Grin

My favourite song of all time is the Yehat Theme.  No question about it, this is absolutely amazing.  I even put it on some of my burnt CDs because I liked it so much.  When my friends ask me: "What the hell kinda music is this?" when we're cruising in my car, I reply: "Damn good music."  And they agree, too...  I mean, it's such an epic and commanding song.  Nothing compares to the Yehat track.

I think that's mainly a question of what you grew up with. i love those old quirky PC songs, because they bring back SC2 in my mind. Nostalgia is a powerful force.

Oh, and for once, I totally agree with Omni. That is one wicked track! It'll be interesting to hear what kind of remix comes out on that. Personally, I doubt it's improvable...

Wow, this is a first!  Is this the end of the world...?  No?  Who would've thought we'd ever agree on something...   Roll Eyes

I like the old, digital sound because it's what I grew up with.  I mean, the NES and Game Boy beeped similar types of sounds (to some extent).  I find it funny when people criticize the music or sounds from old games.  I still like the old SNES and Dos music alot, even if the quality is lower in some people's eyes.

The first time I ran into that Probe, I had just won over Haye's assistance and was exploring Hyperspace for the very first time ever. Then a mysterious ship came by, and wanted to chat, and I figured 'sure, why not.'
I was too busy taking in the detail of the crystalline entities on board (obviously I had no idea yet that they were simply computerized drones) and thinking, "These guys look incredible." to notice any music. (Though whenever I ran into them afterwards, I laughed at the little squeaky voices in the background before you hear 'We come in peace'.)

I figured they wouldn't send anything overly hostile against you so early in the game. So I decide to make peace--- and they agree, and I'm smiling... then they say they want to crush me into little bits. I wonder what the heck I just said wrong, and I'm too stunned to react as I'm blown to bits by the probe. Next thing I know the ship blows apart and I just stare at the Menu Screen in shock.

....I imagine that was the same reaction of most of the alien races that ran into the probes.

The only other starships we have encountered
are strange tumbling red probes which profess to be on a peaceful mission But then attack like slavering Zebrankys.

Except they probably didn't stare at the menu screen for too long  Grin
