Need for Madness plays Mod tracks for its soundtrack.
The Mod format is a form of open source music that contains both the musical notes to be played and the samples (instruments) to be used.
The samples are stored in the form of small wav files while the notes are stored in text format. So the game basically creates the music itself from the notes and samples then plays it!
That is why the tracks used in the game are very small in size (downloads really fast) yet outputs long high quality sound.
All the tracks used in the game where originally discovered at ModArchive.org, big thanks to Modarchive.org introducing us to all those tracks and their composers!
Many of the tracks where remixed by us in order to match the game and its action better.
Some tracks get played in the game with a faster playback rate then their original rate.
To play these tracks outside the game you will need a player capable of playing ".mod" files. A commonly used and popular player that plays Mod formats at excellent quality (amongst many others including mainly MP3 formats) is Winamp.
To edit and create your own Mod tracks, a very good Mod composer/builder is the MODPlug Tracker. That is the program that was used to create the NFM remixes.
