The sound test mode is available in the original Japanese PlayStation version by typing the password "BGMききたい" when entering the protagonist's name at the beginning of the game. It is accessible in the oversea PSP The War of the Lions port by typing "PolkaPolka". It contains all but two background musics in the game (excluding the music streamed into the FMV) mainly used for the novel games (These novels can actually be played or read in the Japanese version only).
Like its spiritual predecessor, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, all of the pieces are named differently from the OST and are sometimes given funny names. In the Japanese version, trivial notes of each track can be read by pressing the Select button.
The remaining two missing tracks from the sound test mode are the variation of "Espionage" and "Thunder God Cid". The former is played randomly inside the Midlight's Deep. The other one is played during the last scene with High Confessor Marcel Funebris. These two tracks are still ripped by the volunteers and available in the PSF (PSX and PS2 MIDI emulation) set of Final Fantasy Tactics.
Requiem is the event background music played during the conclusion of Chapter 3. It is listed the seventeenth track on disc 2 of the soundtrack. This track is also known as "Requiem for Mr. S" (Ｓ木君の鎮魂歌) in the Sound Test Mode as a joke to comment how the staff discovered the bug in the sound driver written by sound programmer Hidenori Suzuki (鈴木秀典). The bug is probably referring to the wrong notes played accidentally in the BGM. This bug is more constantly encountered when using a PlayStation emulator to run the game.
Published by DOREMI Music Publishing, the Final Fantasy Tactics Original Soundtrack Piano Solo Sheet Music book contains Asako Niwa's solo piano arrangements for the music on the Final Fantasy Tactics: Original Soundtrack. The difficulty level is beginner to intermediate.
