    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    3) HOW DO I GET THE MUSIC OFF THESE GAMES?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    On a CD player:
    The PlayStation versions of WipEout, 2097/XL, Wip3out and WipEout 3: SE are
    just ordinary CDs. You can play them in any conventional CD player. Just skip
    track 1, which is the game data track. From then on the tracks will play in the
    order shown in the Game Track Listings section.
    I don't know if this is possible with the Saturn or PC versions of the game,
    but my guess would be yes for the PC version and no for the Saturn, because to
    the best of my knowledge the PlayStation is the only console of that generation
    to use discs.
    
    Rip them:
    Because the PlayStation versions of WipEout, 2097/XL, Wip3out and WipEout 3: SE
    are just ordinary CDs, you can rip the tracks off them just as you would any
    music CD. Any computer with a CD-Rom drive can serve as an mp3 ripper with
    appropriate software (I like Rioport -
    http://www.rioport.com/SoftwareResources) and transfer tracks to a portable mp3
    player, but only some machines can burn mp3s to blank CDs. Alternatively, if
    you have not got a CD burner or a portable mp3 player, you can just listen to
    the mp3s through your PC - they will play on a program like Rioport, RealPlayer
    or Windows Media Player.
    Do not rip track 1, as this is just the game data track. From then on tracks
    will play in the order shown in the Game Track Listing Section.
    WipEout Fusion cannot be ripped this way as it is a DVD.
    
    Tape them:
    Because the PlayStation versions of WipEout, 2097/XL, Wip3out and WipEout 3: SE
    are just ordinary CDs, you can transfer the tracks to an audio tape just as you
    would with any music CD. As long as you have an appropriate hi-fi system with a
    tape deck and a CD unit, this should be easy. Just skip track 1, as this is the
    game data track. From then on tracks will play in the order shown in the Game
    Track Listing Section.
    The other WipEouts can be transferred to audio tape in a rather more roundabout
    way. If you have fairly new audio equipment with ports for  red and white pins,
    obtain a cable with a red pin and a white pin at one end and a headphone jack
    at the other end - these can be bought quite cheaply. Plug the red and white
    pins into the corresponding slots of your hi-fi, and the other end goes into
    the line-out socket on the front of your TV. Pop an audio cassette into your
    hi-fi and tell it to record.
    I'd do this myself, but the TV and hi-fi are on opposite sides of my dining
    room and the cables aren't long enough. Poo.
    
    Directly to a CD burner:
    If you've got a CD burner with an optical port, obtain an optical cable and use
    it to connect the burner to your PS2. This will let you record the music from
    WipEout Fusion and the PlayStation WipEouts straight to CD.
    
    Directly to a minidisc recorder:
    Just hook it up to the telly and you're away - you should know how to use your
    minidisc player if you have one.
    
    Record them live:
    Stick a mic in front of the TV speakers and you're away. It'll produce sucky
    sound quality, but it's the easiest way.
    
    VCR to DVD method:
    By far the most roundabout (and expensive) way, this is the only feasible way
    of recording WipEout 64 music to mp3 or CD, as the N64 has no ports into which
    a CD burner could go.
    Obtain a cable with red, yellow, and white pins, and use it to connect your VCR
    and N64. Boot up your console and press play on the VCR. If you can see the
    game and not the tape, you have done it correctly so far.
    Now pop your blank video tape inside and hit record. Record yourself playing
    the game with the SFX turned off, or record the tracks playing in the menu
    screens.
    Then use a VHS to DVD recorder (yes, they exist) to transfer this to CD. I
    don't know how you would do this, but it can be done.
    
    Decrypt them:
    You can get the tracks off WipEout Fusion using a PC with a DVD drive and a
    .WAD extractor program. A good one is the tool by Zandal - try a Google search.
    Apparently, though, it only works well on Windows XP, and won't do it right on
    98. Poo.
    
    Try KaZaA:
    http://www.kazaa.com
    A peer-to-peer file search program. Might help you find rare tracks.
    
    Buy them:
    The soundtrack of WipEout is available to buy as a CD from places like Amazon,
    as is the soundtrack of 2097/XL. 2097/XL's soundtrack has these additonal
    tracks:
    Daft Punk: Musique
    Source Direct: 2097
    Photek: Titan
    Chemical Brothers: Leave Home (Underworld Mix)
    The 2097/XL soundtrack is also available on vinyl, but good luck finding it.
    There are no official soundtrack discs for any of the other WipEouts, sadly.
    
    Details of where to buy individual tracks can be found in section 4.

    4) ARTIST INFORMATION
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    . Solo artists are sorted by their surnames. Acts beginning with 'The' are
    sorted by the next word (e.g. look for 'Propellorheads', not 'The
    Propellorheads').
    . Only official websites are included. Many of the artists have good fansites -
    try Google or http://www.ubl.com for them.
    . I've included album (not singles or EPs are there are just too many of them)
    discographies in chronological order for each artist. All discographies are UK
    ones.
    . Where applicable I have included details on where to get their tracks, if the
    artists have released them outside the games.
