Hello DoomWorld. I'm a long-time doomer, but newcomer to the online communities.
I'm making this thread because I've heard a lot of music from other games in various Doom wads.
Do you guys often try to add custom/non-doom midi music to your maps/mods?
Do you make your own with tuxguitar/guitar pro?
Would you be interested in a community free-to-use midi resource for modders/mappers? Does one already exist?
I have a handful of midi tracks and definitely wouldn't care if you used em for maps. If anyone else who makes midis doesn't care who uses their tracks, we can set up a resource for the folks that don't make their own and don't wanna rip off ROTT or just use the standard songs again.
I don't know about you, but I'm not a fan of high quality music packs or real metal songs in standard Doom. It can work for mods/total conversions, but for vanilla style levels, I think it's pretty off-putting.
PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF THIS FORUM HAS COLLAPSIBLE SPOILER TAGS!
//Most of this is going to be heavy metal that's somewhere around Motorhead, Venom, etc.
//this is sort of the only unoriginal, as it's an adaptation of a neofolk song, but without the lyrics it bears no real resemblance to the original
//these two are a little more straightforward heavy metal
//much heavier. More firstwave blackmetal kind of stuff here
MW_AHDMSHORT.mid //Slow, heavy and short
Stuff that's less metal essentially.
May be rock or otherwise.
More comments inside
//heavy, but upbeat, so placed here
//upbeat rock songs
//d-beats and solos. Very short song
MW_MORKOTH.mid //I'd use for an underground level with water maybe
sw_tanelorn.mid //cool solo
sw_TrueStory //also cool solo
//More video gamey sounding
MW_TITLE.mid //cheesy, sounds more Chex Quest than Doom!
ALL OF THE ABOVE:
*I originally posted this on the Zandronum forum, because that's mostly what I play nowadays, but there's a pretty big community here as well, so hello.
Doomkid over at Zandronum kindly threw his midi tracks into this collection, check em out here (his description attached)
I have a music pack here of 34 MIDI's - Mostly original compisitions, with a few other fix-ups and stuff mixed in there. Every original was composed by me and/or 2 of my friends, AKA TheDevilzwork :)
Hope someone gets some use out of these things, many of them were unused tracks from Revenge of the 90's! (Grown.mid, 23.mid, Intro_A1.mid are a few)
