    E1M1 Remade Midi

    The MIDI has a tempo of 100 in Cakewalk Pro Audio 9. * Bass should be monophonic. Playing chords/octaves on bass sounds muddy. * Too much percussion going on at once. It sounds like a drumkit being played by an octopus. Even though it's just a MIDI, remember that a drummer normally only has 2 legs and 2 arms.

    Another DOOM movie being made?

    Pretty sure the female lead in the movie is not supposed to be the "DoomGuy" from the games.

    Yanny or Laurel, what do you hear?

    Today I can hear "laurel", on the same headphones as before. Derp.

    Only "yanny". I can hear that too, lol.
  6. I got Chasm: The Rift today (brand new).  Comes in a big box with a slipcase.

  7. Photo of Quake collection.  It's complete in terms of the official PC series (minus Enemy Territory), although I don't have every release of each game (e.g., Quake: The Offering; QII: Colossus; big box version of Ultimate Quake; CD version of Quake 4; individual big box releases of QIII Arena, QIII: Team Arena, and the QII add-ons; shovelware and TCs...)  Not pictured:  Malice for Quake jewel case (inside the Quake and DOOM compilation box).

    Any Heretic/Hexen fans here?

    The PlayStation version of Hexen is pretty terrible. It suffers from fewer sprite frames and a slow, jerky framerate. The DVD case versions of Hexen II and Heretic II are very cheap (like $5-$10), while the large boxed versions are around $20-$50. Portal of Praevus seems to be the most expensive of the Heretic/Hexen games in terms of eBay prices ($80-$100 complete).

    Any Heretic/Hexen fans here?

    I have boxed physical copies of all 6 games (Heretic, Hexen, Deathkings, Hexen II, Portal of Praevus, and Heretic II). I like the series, although some of Hexen's puzzles stumped me until I read online walkthroughs (which is a minor problem I have with more puzzle-based games). I recently played through Heretic II a second time, this time with the enhancement pack update, which allows quick switching between third-person and pseudo first-person views among other nice improvements.

    Doomworld Musicians, serenade us with your beautiful music!

    The lead is basically just a saw that sounds thin and tinny on its own (and the bass is a generic, clean synth bass sound with no distortion). A lot of the power comes from the mixing and processing of the song itself. The settings for mixing are going to be very different depending on the song, so simply re-creating the saw preset isn't going to sound the same. The final sound is a result of many factors: chorus and distortion effects, the punch of the drums and bass, extra compression and drive applied to the entire track, and of course sidechaining the lead and bass to the kick/snare.

    Doomworld Musicians, serenade us with your beautiful music!

    A short experimental thing that kind of sounds like Carpenter Brut. I used a saw preset as a base but edited it into a giant wall of distortion.

    So,how did the MIDI standards decline in modern operating systems?

    Sound Canvas VA emulates an SC-8820, which happens to have an SC-55 mode, but even then it still sounds different from the real SC-55. The only way to get an authentic SC-55 sound is to use an actual hardware SC-55. Here's an example with the Briefing music from Descent II: 0:00 is hardware SC-55 (recorded by MusicallyInspired). This is the original "correct" SC-55 sound. 1:34 is Sound Canvas VA in SC-55 mode. Notice how the synth strings do not sound right. 3:12 is an 8 MB wavetable from a Creative VIBRA128/AudioPCI card. I am yet to hear any software synthesizer or soundfont that accurately emulates all of the SC-55 patches, especially when it comes to the "synthy" patches. Heck, even that 8 MB AudioPCI sound card bank sounds a lot more interesting than a lot of soundfonts, which tend to have pretty bland or monotonous sounding synth patches. More comparisons, this time with DOOM music (I've posted this before in some older threads):
