Description : All the original Doom tunes remixed into
chiptunes via Impulse Tracker (IT) format. If you
don't know what a chiptune is, basically it
emulates the sound of the NES, Commodore64, etc.
music engines in the form of tracker-based music
(MOD, XM, S3M, IT, etc). It should be noted that
these songs were converted BY HAND, without the
aid of a MID->IT converter of any sort. In
general, the drums are not the same quality as in
most chiptunes, but better.
Additional Credits to : Tyler Pantella (picklehammer), whose MOD classes
were my inspiration:
Jeremy Elder (SgtCrispy), gave me pre-publishing
listening and encouragement:

* Construction *
Base : New from scratch
Build Time : Several months
Editor(s) used : ModPlug Tracker and MIDI Orchestrator Plus! for
music, WinTex and XWE for inspecting and
inserting into WAD files.
Known Bugs : The various module players in various source
ports don't support crisp interpolation of the
music, so the songs may sound a little cracky at
times. If you want a fuller listening experience,
save the musics to IT files, or look under "Web
sites" at the end of this document to find them
in native IT format.
Certain songs had to be inserted multiple times,
due to the nature of Doom's music, so the size is
a bit larger than it would be if each song was
included only once. As far as I know, there is no
way to do this.
May Not Run With... : doom2.exe, any source port that doesn't support
tracker-format music (check your docs for MOD,
module, or tracker support).
