Hello everyone!

Recently I've been fruitlessly scouring the internet for the AoE 1 vanilla redbook sountrack in lossless format (wav or flac).

I own an old physical cd which I can rip the wav files off, however it is so scratched up that all tracks are completely ruined, some won't play at all.

If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe the only option left would be to get a new copy of the game. I heard they can be quite inexpensive in ebay.

Oh yeah I think we might be prohibited from the music since that is original game files? It's a shame, since everybody loves those CD music tracks but a lot of us are simply stuck listening to MIDI music like animals. I know at least some tracks can be found on Youtube so you might be able to get a rip. If you're looking for lossless quality though I think just getting a new disc might be the only safe solution.

I'm not entirely sure though, do all versions of the game even come with the same CD music tracks?

I own a copy of AOE for Macintosh I've ripped the redbook music from, would that work for you?

Thank you for the replies.

I just found a lossless download for all different AoE I tracks.

On youtube, search for "Age of empires ost by Lewis Clement" (I don't know if links are allowed). In the video description he has links to the files.

@Fisk
The redbook tracks from the expansion (Rise of Rome) differ from the original (vanilla) version.

Also I personally wouldn't worry about the legality of sharing music from a 20 year old game which we all own legal copies of, but I suppose we're talking forum rules.

@Plebian
Thanks! But no longer necessary.

Yeah man, site rules. I figured if it was allowed we'd have a download in the granary, but what goes on at youtube is outside our control. It's kind of an annoying limitation as these tracks are really among the most requested things relating to the game. Nobody likes MIDI music. I had some time on my hand so I did an illustration down below.

Contrarian here, I like the midi But I prefer the cd version...

I think both are great. But granted the CD tracks sound more rich of course.
