A Missing Link

Does anyone know where I can get an MP3 of the music Link plays when he calls the Hawk in Twilight Princess? I have worked google like crazy but can't find it for anything.

there is a rip of game music in alt.binaries.sounds.mp3.video-games that includes 127 tracks.

i'm not sure of the legality of this, but if the music isn't available as a retail release and you own the game, it seems to be in that shady area of "fair use".

i don't own the game, so I don't know which particular piece you're looking for and if it's in this collection.

The soundtrack that sharkfu is talking about is also available here. I don't think the piece you're looking for is in there, though -- it's only like a 3 second song, isn't it? The Internet is great and all, but I don't think you'll find something this obscure no matter how much searching you do.

Around the 3:00 mark (and again at the 3:45 mark) of this video Link calls the hawk with the grass flute thingy. Could you use this video as a source and make your own mp3?

I also saw the "Official Soundtrack" (whatever that is) on the usual bittorrent sources.

Generally I find more luck searching P2P software for game soundtracks than on Google.

if it's on youtube, just use keepvid.com to download the FLV. then use an FLV to WAV/ MP3 conversion program. Media-Convert.com is a good website that allows you to upload a file and then it spits back what you need-- I was skeptical but I've used it a couple times successfully for obscure formats. Good because you don't have to install an app...
