The entire Marathon OST meticulously restored with new instruments and better production value.
Unlike most M1 music replacers, this one does NOT try to heavily alter the original composition nor is it simply a sound font swap. I remixed everything inside of FL Studio 20 with high quality VST instruments and (occasionally) real hardware synths and sounds. My goal was to create a faithful reinterpretation of the OST with mostly appropriate sounds (nothing more modern than 1990's electronic instruments, etc) but with a better overall balance and less cheap sound. I'm extremely proud of the outcome, and I think fans of the original game and its score will really appreciate it too!
This download contains a FLAC and OGG version, to replace the in game music, simply drop the OGG files into the "Music" folder in your Marathon directory.
If Aleph One is ever updated to allow gapless looping of music, I will create a loopable mix.

Eupfhoria - Marathon Soundtrack Remake
Eupfhoria is a fully re-instrumented and re-scored soundtrack mod for the first Marathon. This replacement tries to remaster the original soundtrack while retaining the original feel. It IS the tracks you know and love, as it's based off the original MIDI files. Most tracks should fuller and more atmospheric, hopefully a bit like Marathon's younger brother, Halo.
To see if this is for you without downloading, you can stream it all here: Eupfhoria - Full Album Stream
Installation is simple, just replace your Music folder found in the Marathon directory. Backup your original folder if you want to go back to the originals.
NOTE: Don't use this for your first playthrough. Really. This is for people who've played through it before and want a new experience. Updating those pesky textures is one thing, but save this for your second playthrough.

The music that is shipped with the Marathon release is based off of the classic Quicktime synth. This is the fed through fluidsynth which utilized a modern sample set — in this case, Don Allen's Timbres of Heaven. All tracks have been normalized and made working for in-game.
To install, simply replace the Music folder within the Marathon data folder
Notes for version 2.0:
-A new attempt utilizing Timbers of Heaven 3.4 and the latest fluidsynth.

Calle de Las Sombras 1.01

A map that allows hiding in the shadows to avoid detection from enemies. Light-dodging gameplay.
Optional sounds are more echo-y varients of the default sounds for a cavernous vibe.
Notes for version 1.01:
1.01 changed the texuring, added sounds, and changed the ending slightly.

This appears to be a secret song for Marathon Trojan.
It can be found in a snd resource in the Trojan Manual. In Classic, after pasting the file to Scrapbook, then dragging it to the desktop, it was converted to .aiff format with SoundApp.
Thanks to GrimCleaver for teaching me this technique. :)
The song itself is 41 seconds long, and it ends rather abruptly. This is probably because it isn't the full song. It is still enjoyable.
