The arrangements come in a variety of styles from a total of over 130 arrangers and performers including tracks by the Videri String Quartet, composer Dale North (Wizard of Legend), voice actor Joe Zieja (STAR FOX ZERO) and YouTube sensation String Player Gamer alongside performances by Wilbert Roget II (Call of Duty: WWII), Kristin Naigus (Minecraft, Lara Croft), and many others.

"The Xenogears soundtrack is largely responsible for my own path to becoming the videogame music composer I am today," reflects album producer Chris Porter. "Before I even knew that you could buy videogame soundtracks, I would fire up Xenogears and just let the music play as I listened blissfully through my TV speakers. When I taught myself how to play guitar, I used to figure out melodies from the game by ear, often from memory. Overseeing the production of OMEGA was an experience like none I've ever had. I was moved to tears countless times as I heard everyone's arrangements. OMEGA is a love letter to Xenogears and its timeless soundtrack. I hope it brings many hours of enjoyment to everyone who listens."
Every track from the Xenogears soundtrack is included, from the jovial town themes and majestic overworld to the riveting battle themes and even a few surprises featured throughout.
