Grand Theft Auto Online
With the continuous release of content updates for Grand Theft Auto Online, the official Grand Theft Auto V Score is forever expanding. GTA Online sees the addition of other genres, such as electronic pop, rap and trap. After the Heists Update, Tangerine Dream are no longer working with Rockstar Games in producing soundtracks for GTA Online, due to the departure of Edgar Froese, who passed away shortly before the release of the Heists Update. The Freemode Events Update releases several unused Tangerine Dream tracks.
- Contact Missions
- Job Countdown
- Flight School Missions
- Gang Attacks
- Heists Soundtracks
Exclusively introduced into the Heists Update for Grand Theft Auto Online, soundtracks followed on the same role as normal mission soundtracks, and play randomly during heists or heist setups. Note that variations of similar songs appear, just like the soundtracks in GTA Online missions. The music becomes more intense as certain objectives are completed or certain tasks are performed, for example, after firing weaponry at Merryweather Units in Pacific Standard - Convoy, a drum beat and heavier rhythm will be introduced into the soundtrack.
So far, there are 8 Heist Soundtracks in GTA Online. Any track can play in any heist at any appropriate moment, however, some appear in heists more common than others.
One soundtrack can be found in the game files, but is not featured in any of the final heist setups or finale missions.
Alternate variants of several heist tracks were used during Rockstar Games Livestreams. These use different stems and are notably different in length and instruments used.
- Freemode Events
Added as part of the Lowriders update for Grand Theft Auto Online for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. These new soundtracks play during the featured lowrider missions. More were subsequently added as part of the Lowriders: Custom Classics update.
- Further Adventure in Finance and Felony
As part of the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update, numerous mission soundtracks were added, which play during the Adversary Mode "Power Play". Like other mission themes, these intensify as the mission/work progresses.
Also playing are Wanted level soundtracks which play during VIP Work and VIP Challenges.
New soundtracks play during Bikers missions in GTA Online.
New soundtracks were added with the Import/Export update for GTA Online. These play when sourcing or selling a vehicle and for the Special Vehicle missions. Like other mission themes, the songs intensify or de-intensify as the mission/work progresses.
Import/Export soundtracks were composed by Take A Daytrip.
New soundtracks were added with the Gunrunning update for GTA Online. These play when sourcing or selling Supplies and for Mobile Operations. Like other mission themes, the songs intensify or de-intensify as the mission/work progresses.
Gunrunning soundtracks were composed by Oh No.
- Smuggler's Run
New soundtracks were added with the Smuggler's Run for GTA Online. These play when sourcing or selling Air Freight Cargo and during Adversary Modes Motor Wars, Bombushka Run and Stockpile. Like other mission themes, the songs intensify or de-intensify as the mission/work progresses.
Smuggler's Run soundtracks were composed by Oh No.
- The Doomsday Heists
There are also several Adversary Mode soundtracks yet to be used.
Doomsday Heists soundtracks were composed by Oh No.
- Loading Theme
This track is heard when loading the game at any point. Depending on how long the game takes to load (further depending on the platform), the soundtrack has different parts. The loading theme used was created by Tangerine Dream, named "Mona Da Vinci", from 2011.
- Pause Menu Theme
When the game is paused, after around 1 minute, a pause menu theme will begin to play. It will play in any of the menu options, be it map, gallery, or friends. It is also heard when creating the GTA Online player. It is not heard in GTA Online. The pause menu theme was created by Tangerine Dream, named "Greyhound". It is not heard anywhere else in-game. A full-mix of the soundtrack can be found in the files.
- Flying Theme
When flying in a vehicle without the radio on (but the music volume on full), eventually a flying theme will play. It will become more and more intense as the player flies around. It begins to fade once the player nears the ground, or fully lands. This plays in both GTA V and GTA Online. Land vehicles which can fly, such as the Deluxo and Oppressor, do not activate this soundtrack.
Wanted Level Soundtrack
Once the player gains 3 stars or more, a Wanted Level Soundtrack will begin to play. The soundtracks can only be heard on foot, or in a vehicle when the radio is turned off.
At 3 stars, the soundtracks will remain low pace, "calm" and a small beat will be heard. The soundtrack usually introduces itself with a small rhythm or a high pitched noise, in most cases, this will lead to a long, slow, low-intensity beat.
At 4 stars, the soundtrack will change its pace. A strong beat will be introduced, or if there already was one, it will become more intense and notable. High pitched, long electronic sound effects found on 3 stars usually fade away, to make the beat stand out.
At 5 stars, the soundtrack is at its most intense beast. Not much of a notable difference can be heard between the 4th and 5th star; in most cases, it takes several seconds to hear a notable difference in pace. Small, quick rhythms will become notable, and the beat of drums will vary.
After 5 stars, a section known as the "Cooldown Zone" occurs. This happens when the player begins to lose the police. In simpler form, it reduces its pace, rhythm and returns back to its 3 star form. It will become much more intense and quiet, and if the player goes underground, for example, in the subways with a 5 star wanted level, the sound is echoed more for effect, adding a "tip-toe" noise effect. Once the stars are lost, a "whisper"-style whistle will occur, and the soundtrack will end.
- Original version release
So far, in the original release of GTA V, there are 11 wanted level themes.
