I just found a few unique song mixes on an earlier version of DOA2. They're in-between the arcade and home versions so I'm referring to them as WIP mixes.

Beta Console version (Build 20010107)

Music Differences:

Jann Lee

Character Select

Zipped the three beta songs and their final counterpart ADXes together so you can use them as you wish or compare directly for yourself.
I recommend Foobar and an extra component called "kode54's ADPCM decoders" if you want to play them directly.

Edit: Here's Jann Lee

OMG! You managed to rip the Dreamcast demo music? SWEET! Are you able to rip D.O.A.(Character Select) beta version as well?

These sound awesome. The Vigaku buildup is better in this WIP mix IMO. Any Tina? ;)
There's a limited number of songs on here (Helena, Ayane, Kasumi, Ein, Leifang, Jann Lee, Char Select) and only the bolded are different in this build. I was going nuts and thought Kasumi's theme was sounding different but I did a checksum comparison against the final version and knew it was time to go to sleep.

Here you go. Was trying to make sure the ones I put up were actually beta and different.

this is awesome , is there any more beta music ?
Just these three in this build. The demo disc didn't include the full soundtrack.

Are there more of these beta mixes? I like to hear more of them. If there is more....
I never knew this existed.
