New to the forums. Let me introduce myself.
My name is Jeff and I've been a gamer pretty much all of my life.
Doom was one of the first PC games I can remember really being into and still am to this day. I was born in '85 so I was thrown right into the big boom of video games. Old school PC games will always have a special place in my life. I love all the classic first person games like Doom, Hexen, Heretic, Blood etc. and also thoroughly enjoy point and click adventures such as the LucasArts games and my favorite Death Gate.
I have recently become more involved with music production and am starting to make covers for older titles.
My first cover was Map 30: Icon of Sin.
I have always been infatuated with the Doom soundtracks; Bobby Prince's use of instruments and his style of ambient metal is some amazing stuff.
I do miss the days of old school video game music and wish some companies would dive more into bringing back the classic VG sound in regards to music.
Anyway, if you'd like to check my cover out, you can find it here:
I will be doing more Doom tracks in the future.

I tried to keep it as close to the original as I could, I'm going to try and record with some more realistic sounding instruments on future tracks.
If you're looking to program drums, get some music production software like Ableton Live or Fruity Loops. While those are pay software, there is probably something similar that's free.
Use a sequencer plug-in. There's plenty of free drum samples or vst's out there.
Also, if you're looking to make it sound more authentic, you can "humanize" the drums by using groove clips or quantize settings.
Just uploaded another track - "Waiting for Romero to Play"
Let me know what you think :)
