D2RMUS.WAD Contains MUS format music for use with any Doom 2 wad.
All game music tracks are replaced.
This music is probably more suited to fun / speed running than for atmosphere.

If you want atmosphere you may want to download the PSXMusic wad from Doom Depot:
http://www.doom2.net/~doomdepot/
Click the Music Wads link on the left hand side bar (Doom Diversity) and choose
Doom PSX Wad (Doom 1 AND 2) (48 megs).

Usage:
doom2 -file d2reload.wad dr2mus.wad
zdoom -iwad doom2.wad -file d2reload.wad dr2mus.wad
gzdoom -iwad doom2.wad -file d2reload.wad dr2mus.wad
prboom-plus.exe -iwad doom2.wad -file d2reload.wad dr2mus.wad
etc...

This music wad can be used to replace the music in the original Doom 2 or any other Doom 2 wad.
Just make sure it appears last in the -file list.

All tunes except Red Sector Theme were converted from Atari ST YM chip tunes available from:
http://pacidemo.planet-d.net/aldn/index.html

Red Sector Theme can be found on:
is from http://amp.dascene.net/home.php

All tunes converted by eschdoom using STSound, Modplug Tracker and an XM2MUS conversion utility.

Notes:
Unfortunately some tunes have been cut / modified to fit the 64K limit imposed by the MUS 
format.
Some shorter tunes have been extended slightly.

Tested with the following ports:
Chocolate Doom, Skulltag, ZDoom, GZDoom, Doomsday Engine, Vavoom, Edge, Risen3D, ZDaemon, 
Odamex, Doom Legacy, PrBoom, Eternity Engine.

Known Problems:

ZDoom based ports
FMOD is the default but not recommended, for better results use a Midi device or Timidity
with a decent sound font set.
When using OPL synth as the music device the Electro Snare instrument used on some tunes is 
virtually unnoticeable which makes them sound a bit strange.
When using FMOD as the music device the music for MAP22 sounded off key at the start. I 
noticed that it was because at the end of the tune the pitch bend controller was not center 
and is not reset when the tune restarts.
I would argue that normally any controllers should be reset by the replay / conversion engine
when music is restarted but I've modified the tune anyway to remove the problem.

Edge v1.31 Win32
All music sounds off key.

Doom Legacy 1.42 Win32
All music sounds out of sequence.
