    Favorite soundfont?

    I thought the voice limit for the Microsoft synth was 32. Don't forget voices on higher-numbered channels are first in line to be cut off so put less important stuff like subtle delays on those and keep the important things like melody, bass on the lower-numbered channels and then you can probably get away with more intricate arrangements, but to be honest I've stopped caring about it seeing as modern Doom ports don't seem to use the MS synth itself by default and instead use things like Fluidsynth with a soundfont emulating the MS synth without the polyphony issues. Not hugely keen on soundfonts personally. There's a lot of uploads of Doom WAD soundtracks on Youtube that use various soundfonts, such as on this channel. As a composer I genuinely do find it interesting how my MIDIs are handled by each soundfont, despite how badly some of them turn out, but for me they're never better than the Microsoft synth originals.

    So, how old are you ?

    man...this thread is so old I'm starting to regret being the second person to reply to it :P hitting the quarter-century this coming weekend...

    Hello, just looking in on this thread - I don't know this WAD but seems like all the maps are by Cheesewheel. I didn't work on this, the map is just using my music!

    Are you telling me an unobtainable key in the secret map of a TNT sequel was an accident???

    What are some WADs that deserve a new MIDI Pack?

    not Hell Revealed, and definitely not Going Down which was a popular suggestion last time we had a thread like this iirc. Out of the big names that are left, I could see a pack for Scythe 1. Maybe D2TWID too.

    Alien Vendetta MIDI Pack - Now on idgames!

    Congratulations on the release! Looking forward to giving this a listen, that is one hell of a line-up in that tracklist, no doubt, and a very welcome surprise to see Knightrider of Doom contributing! Also...

    The 2021 Cacowards Thread Sidebar [Split]

    Honestly the Plutonia MIDI Pack didn't even get that much attention when it released, its popularity is something that only came along years later. The more recent packs have actually fared much better, Cacowards mention or not.

    Tristan MIDIs [updated 3-Jul-22]

    Small update, nothing notable but just doing a bit of rebranding and housekeeping - the ZIP is now on Dropbox and is slightly restructured, Doom projects now in their own subfolder. I've also thrown in the original version of Blood Rush that was included with the Plutonia MIDI Pack and marked the other one as an extended edit. I'm hoping I can pick up the pace with music in general again next year, 2021 has sucked big time x_x
