    Brand New Dark Ambient tracks!

    Hehe...me too. The samples and synths I was using were responding in unique ways and it felt as if the track was leading me...not the other way around. I felt like a passenger on a vehicle that was being driven all by itself. I just sort of channeled the textures and let it go wherever it went. Most of the time I have a fairly good idea where I want things to go aurally, but not in this case. As I listened back it all seemed to make perfect sense but I will admit it was a mystery while performing.

    Yes, I am currently working on 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtracks for Final Doom Playstation and Quake 64. I think that Final Doom will be done first but I am not certain yet.

    Brand New Dark Ambient tracks!

    Hi Doomworld! I think you all might enjoy my latest release of dark ambient tracks, Journey Into The Dark Places: Volume 2 https://aubreyhodges.bandcamp.com/album/journey-into-the-dark-places-vol-2 It's over 2 hours of seriously demented and delicious darkness that will ooze forth from you speakers. Although not directly Doom related, it is most certainly Doom-like in many ways. It's based in the Zorn Empire which is part of the MistWorlds Rpg setting. The Zorn are a species who subjugate planets and darkness and evil are their middle names! Also, if you purchase the album, feel free to use the tracks in your Doom mods provided you credit the material and provide a link to the album on bandcamp. Thanks again for all the support Doomworld! I truly have some of the best fans in the world and you all prove that time and time again. -Aubrey

    Doom 64 - 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack

    Sorry I have been so long in delivering this. I was laid off from Backflip Studios/Hasbro and had to scramble to sell my home, renovate an old house in Ohio and then move. We are still in the middle of trying to renovate the house but I did manage to find time in my portable studio to get this completed. It ended up being some of my best work...lots of frustration and anger to pour into it I guess. I really appreciate the concern and I apologize for not updating sooner. https://aubreyhodges.bandcamp.com/album/doom-64-official-soundtrack-20th-anniversary-extended-edition

    Doom 64 - 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack

    The album is really shaping up. Another 2 weeks or so should make it happen. 3 more bonus tracks to wrap up and one of the remixes. Also need to get it mixed and mastered but I am beginning to see the end of the tunnel:) In the meanwhile, I just released a really unique album with my son John. It's Beethoven Quartets in all their glory...but John and I approached this as if 4 sentient robots discovered earth music and played it using their internal synthesis chips. Take a listen and hopefully it'll hold ya until I get the Doom 64 project completed. https://aubreyhodges.bandcamp.com/album/the-synthbots-beethoven-quartets-vol-i -Aubrey

    Doom 64 - 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack

    Hehe, it really isn't making the best use of my time. I can make more writing a single track commercially than the entire album sales will be. It is a labor of love as these old games meant a great deal to me. And, they are fun to do. But I really do appreciate the folks who buy the albums very much as it restores some measure of faith that not everyone just illegally downloads or streams their music these days. I think pretty much every dollar that has come in from these old soundtracks has just gone right back into keeping my studio running. Lots of my older gear has finally broken down and I have had to get it all serviced. My old Mackie Hr824 Mk 1's lasted an impressive 19 years in service though before the amps died!

    Doom 64 - 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack

    I'll most likely start the Final Doom special edition right after this one releases. The prep work takes a few weeks, then the tracking, mixing, mastering and everything else takes between 1-4 months. I compose pretty much daily for Backflip Studios/Hasbro as well as several hours of practice on all of the instruments I play, which is quite a few. Then I relax for a bit and get some fresh air and spend time with my family an so on. Then I jump right back into the studio and get to work on these side projects. I am working on 3 other side albums too, Journey into the Cosmos, The Shadow of Yserbius Soundtrack and a series of synth based classical quartets which will ship very soon as well. Beethoven will be first, then I will move on to Holst, Bach, Grieg, Mozart and a few other favorites of mine. I hate spreading myself thin but sometime the creative drive is just too strong to ignore. I started the classical project to make better use of my practice time. Figured I might as well press record while I play through the pieces. Anyway, I hope that gives you a little more insight as to why these projects get a little delayed at times.

    I would never do something like that. This is 100% real.

    Ok. Back into the studio I go. Gotta get this all wrapped up!

    Doom 64 - 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack

    I used very complicated techniques in my sampler within Logic as well as a ton of custom reverb presets and other plugins to emulate how the PlayStation sound engine functioned. While I could output the raw midi and raw samples, it would not even sound remotely close to the final tracks.

    Doom 64 - 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack

    We didn't do an ending voice-over on the N64 due to size restrictions so I don't have any idea what the script would be. I think you'll like what I have done for the Finale though, despite the lack of the voice-over;)
  12. Hey Doom fans! I will be releasing an all new version of the Doom 64 Soundtrack…the Doom 64 20th Anniversary Extended Edition Soundtrack! This special edition of the Doom 64 Soundtrack will have the following unique features: 8 completely new bonus tracks (one of which has been created using only original in-game sound effects!) New version of the Doom Main Theme New version of the Finale Theme New version of the Stats Screen music All of these ambient pieces have been crafted with the same techniques and artistry that were used to bring the original to life. I hope to release within the next few weeks.
