Tracks by C418 (except for "11") have been shortened to 30 seconds on this wiki, due to an agreement with the composer. Composed by Lena Raine, "Pigstep" is exempt from this as well.
A somewhat unsettling ambient track consisting mostly of cave sounds, metallic clinks, splashes, wind blowing, creeper explosion and muffled bow firings.
An upbeat, synthetic melody.
An upbeat, catchy tune.
A retro tune with a sample from a 1970 MATTEL Program Disc: Bossa Nova Style playing in the background.
A calm, relaxing, nature-like melody.
A calm, underwater-like, piece of serene music.
A slow, slightly melancholic waltz with a sample from a mellotron playing in the background.
A moderate jazz-like piece.
A tropical-sounding synth piece.
The record starts off with an excerpt from Chopin's Funeral March played on synth organ but goes into an electronic, upbeat, exploration and adventure tune with a dark undertone.
A deeply unsettling disc; the recording seems to be of a person running across (or maybe breaking) different block types and later on stopping to use equipment of some kind, coughing, and then continuing running with a hastened pace. The block sounds similar to that of dirt and stone. The person is struggling and haunting background noises are heard throughout the recording. Strange noises of barking or wind blowing are heard near the end before abruptly stopping. One can hear a hissing noise akin to what would be expected at the end of an older shellac record at this point.
An upbeat and relaxing song, with a "blocky" feel to it.
This disc was only later added to Minecraft, after having existed in the game data for quite some time (as where are we now).
3:58 (Fades at 3:51)
The only disc that may be obtained exclusively in the Nether, in bastion remnants. Has an intense beat, along with more mellow parts further in reminiscent of a radio.[upcoming:JE 1.16 & BE 1.16.0]
9 new discs were implemented, adding up to a total of 11 discs, although they are not dropped by any creepers. These are stored along with the first discs, 13.mus and cat.mus, (which have been decoded as 13.ogg and cat.ogg respectively). Before this update,[when?] there were 12 unused music files, now only one remains unused, which is the song "where are we now". "Where are we now" was not added with the rest of the new 9 discs because of problems with the spaces in the name.
The data values used by music discs range from 2256–2267, while all other blocks/items use the first free data value available.[Bedrock Edition only]
The discs appear to be based on older 78-RPM records. These usually held a single 2–3 minute song on one or both sides, were made out of a noisy material called shellac (which was notorious for its fragility and hissing sound when no music was playing, both of which can be seen in "11"), and were larger than the 45-RPM vinyl records that replaced them.
The title "13" is a reference to the 13 ambience tracks that existed when the disc was added. A few of these can be heard throughout the track.
On the Legacy Console Edition, the track "dog" is appended to the "cat" music disc. Once "cat" is done playing and the soundtrack fades out, "dog" begins playing for another two minutes or so, making this version of "cat" the longest music disc in the game.
The "blocks" disc is the only non-block item in the game that has the word "block" in its name. That makes it the only item that appears when searched for in the Creative item selection menu.
The "chirp" track uses a sample from the Optigan disc "Bossa Nova Style". It also sounds very similar to the song "The Orb Of Dreamers" from the PlayStation game series LittleBigPlanet, which uses the same sample. The two can be compared here.
The title "stal" is a Swedish word meaning stole in English and a Polish word meaning steel.
This could be the Swedish word stål (with an added ring diacritic), which would mean steel in English. Stal is also known as a very popular disc because of the short youtube series smp live that had a player named jshlatt that hated the disc and made the community love it in return.
Disc "11" is the 11th music disc in the game, according to its data value before Java Edition 1.13 and the redstone signal strength it causes jukeboxes to output.
Disc "11" is the only visibly damaged music disc (this is possibly the reason why the disc sounds distorted).
Disc "11" lasts for 1 minute and 11 seconds.
If the .ogg file for the music disc "11" is turned into a spectrogram in an audio editor, the static at the end displays what seems to be Steve's face and the numbers 12418.
The numbers are a visual signature, where "C" is hexadecimal for "12", and combined with "418" creates "C418" (the producer of the music from music discs).
"Pigstep"[upcoming:JE 1.16 & BE 1.16.0] is unique in a few different ways. It is the only music disc to have a different color for the disc part, it is the only disc not composed by C418, and it is the only disc to have its name capitalized.
