This page is for the Super Noah's Ark 3D (DOS) song, for more titles see Menu.

Menu, as the name suggests, is played in the menus of Super Noah's Ark 3D. The track is also played in levels E1M1, E2M2, E3M3, and E5M2. The song is the same for both the DOS and SNES releases, but the different audio hardware plays them each with a distinct sound.

In the DOS version, Menu plays louder, in result of splendid percussion, and slightly slower than in the SNES release. It plays in the main menu but not the title screen, so it is not the very first song you hear. Aside from this, it is used in the aforementioned levels (E1M1, E2M2, E3M3, and E5M2).

The type-0 DOS MIDI file's meta data refers to the track as "NOAH01.imf", even though it is not an IMF file. This is to make it compatible with Wolfenstein 3D music engine. The song itself is output to OPL2.
