Music (SSBM)

From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

The songs used in the Melee OST are written/arranged/sequenced by the collective of composers henceforth known as "Orchestra Melee". While there is an official live-orchestra version of a select few songs from this game, Most of the orchestral music in-game is made using two sound libraries called Peter Siedlaczek's Advanced Orchestra and Quantum Leap Brass, while the contemporary songs used Roland Sound Canvas (among other sound libraries). The Opening Theme, Great Bay, Pokémon Stadium, the Adventure Mode Intro, and Game-Over music as well as the Winning Fanfares for all characters, save for Captain Falcon and Game & Watch, is the only music with a live, non-sequenced orchestra. The tracks as they are presented in the game's Sound Test are listed and described here. Almost all of the game's music can be heard in the game's Sound Test feature, and they are given their "official titles" there.

Other music tracks

The Sound Test features 80 entries in its music list (if counting short pieces including victory themes), but this is not the full selection of music in the game. However, many might identify the Giga Bowser battle music as the 81st track (for a total of 81 songs). In addition to the Giga Bowser battle music being not available in the Sound Test, several short unused pieces can be found in the debug sound test menu.[1]

Unlocking Method

Alternate tracks can only be unlocked when the player has unlocked a certain number of characters (Tracks #30, #32, #34, #35, #36, and #37 are unlocked after all characters are unlocked, while tracks #31 and #33 are unlocked after Marth and Young Link are unlocked). Track #55 only plays when the Sound Test is unlocked.
