There might be some other useful info in there (in particular, the bolded part) but I can't do it yet.

Hmm, actually I'm confused...

That line appears to say that the website songs are played in the actual arcade machine and this:

Appears to say that the website songs are the arranged versions.

Perhaps someone can translate the above better than me and work out which Wangan Midnight soundtracks can be classified as arranged and which as original.

Well I just listened to a few of them, and more than arranged, I'd say they're differently mastered. They're exactly the same songs, no composition changes at all, but they a bit different, probably with a lot more treble overall. Some sound more or less the same, others slightly better and others worse (like Total Terror, which I think sounds much better in the album version).
There's one new arranged track, tho, which is track 2 like you said, layzee. A trancy remix of Stream of Tears. The rest are probably the same as in the album.

They're not mastered differently, they're mixed differently. (Most people don't know the exact difference between the terms, but mastering focuses almost exclusively on subtle volume, panning, and EQ adjustments at the final stage of a production, typically in preparation for being released on an album.)

You can hear majorly differences between the two versions of Maxi 1, which is something that would only be done in the mixing stage. For example, in this version of Blue Blazes, you can hear a hi-hat playing 16th notes at the beginning of the track. In the WMMT2 OST, it's not even there. Of course, don't let that fool you, because the WMMT2 mixes seem a lot tighter (and newer) from initial inspection.

Unless there are any objections, I'd like to update the album notes to reflect this.

P.S. "Stream Of Tears(more tranced mix)" is obviously a new track; a very different mix than the original.

Well, it's been 8 years since my opening post and the Japanese I quoted now looks a lot more comprehensible. A (may or may not be liberal) translation of it follows:

Quote:
The Maestro Yuzo Koshiro takes the plunge into Trance music for the first time and puts his all into these songs! Please enjoy this game arrange version. You can also hear songs not released on the soundtrack.

※The songs that can be downloaded here are used in the "Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune" arcade cabinet and differ from the songs used in "Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 2" and the original soundtrack.

The "Maxi 1 Version BGM Download" is provided for individual enjoyment and cannot be used for any other purpose. We hope for the continued cooperation and acceptance of our request by our valued customers.
I'm not an arcade or Wangan expert but it seems like these songs were used in the WMMT1 arcade cabinet while the WMMT2 cab (which also includes WMMT1) uses mixed versions. Note how WMMT1 never had its own individual official soundtrack.

Off topic but the WMMT games are never gonna be released on consoles, aren't they.

Yeah that seems to line up with my assumption that I made in the 10th anniversary box thread. Thanks for the translation, layzee! =}
