Phil’s Wacky Wheels Site

Game music

Here you can download the music from Wacky Wheels in various formats. You can also download an unreleased track, “Everything,” which was written for Wacky Wheels but not included in the game. Mark Klem, who wrote the music for Wacky Wheels, has high quality recordings of some tracks, two of which are extended versions. There are also some live performances and remixes.

You can download zip files of all MIDI files, Ogg recordings from MIDI, AdLib MP3s by Teppica, or recordings from Mark Klem.

At the bottom of the page is a table that shows what music is played for each race and shootout zone, and more information about the files.

More information about the files

Music in Wacky Wheels is saved in two formats: MIDI and KLM, an AdLib synthesis format that was apparently only used for Wacky Wheels. The MIDI files are played if you select General MIDI music output in the Wacky Wheels setup program. The KLM files are used if you select SoundBlaster. The MIDI and KLM recordings sound the same, except for Star Brain and Brick Wall.

The recordings in Ogg format were made using the MIDI synthesis in Windows 7. The AdLib KLM music was recorded using a Sound Blaster 16 CT1740 by Teppica.
