I am a music writer/composer and I am interested in both playing my own music and writing music for SE (maybe creating add-on music).  Does anyone know how I would go about this?  How can I sub my own music in and/or if I create add-on tracks, how do I get those to the community?  Any help would be great.

Hello,

I found out that all you need to do is convert your WAV, MP3, or whatever you have, to an OGG Vorbis file type and place it into the "music" folder in SE; way easy.  I have been inspired by this game and I plan to release a slew of music similar to that which is already in-game.  I will eventually post a link to the SE inspired tracks when enough of them are complete and you may download free if you wish.

Somewhat unrelated. But does anyone know who created SE's soundtrack?

@ 11ryanc,

I am not sure.  It looks like several artists have contributed to it.  Try bringing up the player in-game.  You can see a list of the songs and artists.

It's in the title - mostly A.e.r.o, Astropilot, and Lokijar and several others. Go to SpaceEngine > data > music.

Ok,  This is a track that I created specifically for Space Engine.  This one is actually very spacey.  Feel free to download.  Sounds better when played while playing Space Engine.  This is an OGG.  Just drag it to the "music" folder within Space Engine.

I hope that you like this one.

You can technically create musical addons.
Creating a music folder in the addon's folder should do the work

That works for random tracks, but you can also go a bit more in depth and add your tracks to the context file.

I haven't tried doing anything with the context file yet.

Wow, nice tracks, I loved them.  I'm absolutly useless in any artistic way, I also admire people talented for music. Keep on.
