 Post subject: Love the music and sound design in the Silent Hill games

Hi there!

My name is SynaMax and I've always been fascinated by sound design and music. Silent Hill's OST is no exception. I remember listening to White Noiz while my friend was playing Silent Hill 2, remarking on the eerie tone of the music and noticing how important it was to the game's overall mood.

Fast forward years later and I stumbled on this forum and found out how Akira Yamaoka used Spectrasonics's Distorted Reality II library (in particular the "DAYBREAK" sample) to create that track.

On top of that, I noticed how so many other games and media reuse the same libraries as well. Metroid Prime Hunters for example, uses a lot of drum loops from Distorted Reality II as well.

Admittedly, I haven't played any of the other Silent Hill games, but I'm hoping to change that very soon. I find it weird how I'm more familiar with Silent Hill's OST than the actual game itself, lol.

Thanks for reading my intro post!

Welcome!

I've definitely known a few people, especially growing up that were intimately familiar with the Silent Hill OSTs (especially 2,3 and 4) and hadn't even touched a Silent Hill game hah.

Make sure you check out the soundtrack to Origins! The game was shit but the soundtrack was great!

I love the game too, but the OST was one of the best, hell yeah. Hunt down the actual ambient OST from the game itself too then, cause it's just as killer. The motel music still gives me chills.
