Where to get mp3s of the Doom music on FM synth cards

Recommended Posts

There's tons of DooM mp3s out there, all recorded on sound canvases, super new synths, etc., but I am looking for mp3s of the DooM level music as heard on a 1993-vintage mono 8-bit SoundBlaster, with it's cheasey FM synth chip (just like I had in '93 when I bought DooM).

Short answer: You can't.

Long answer: Recent versions of ZDoom have built-in OPL3 synthesis. You can download it and see if you can get it working (Options -> Advanced Sound Options somewhere). However, this won't easily enable you to record MP3s of it.

I happen to have a Sound Blaster 32 with a particular MIDI device called Creative FM Synthesizer. I might be able to be persuaded to record an MP3 of a few Doom MIDIs and you can see if it's something that's up your alley. However, I am on a 56K modem.

I also know that there may be a few freeware or shareware software FM synth emulator programs out there. Try looking for one.
