 //systemSoundtrack// describes a track meant for a specific system or set of systems. The engine will look at the locationCriteria field and play the track only if the star system the player is in matches the criteria. For example, the track //Jiang// in the //Stars of the Pilgrim Soundtrack// plays only in systems with the "ungoverned" attribute. This criterion should be accompanied by either travelSoundtrack or combatSoundtrack. //systemSoundtrack// describes a track meant for a specific system or set of systems.

A value of 1000 here is equal to 1 second. **Segments** These chop the track up into pieces so the engine knows when a good place to start/stop is for transitioning between tracks.
