Names
Chiptune Doom
Description
All the original Doom tunes remixed into chiptunes via Impulse Tracker (IT) format. If you don't know what a chiptune is, basically it emulates the sound of the NES, Commodore64, etc. music engines in the form of tracker-based music (MOD, XM, S3M, IT, etc). It should be noted that these songs were converted BY HAND, without the aid of a MID->IT converter of any sort. In general, the drums are not the same quality as in most chiptunes, but better.

Description             : All the original Doom tunes remixed into
  chiptunes via Impulse Tracker (IT) format. If you
  don't know what a chiptune is, basically it
  emulates the sound of the NES, Commodore64, etc.
  music engines in the form of tracker-based music
  (MOD, XM, S3M, IT, etc). It should be noted that
  these songs were converted BY HAND, without the
  aid of a MID->IT converter of any sort. In
  general, the drums are not the same quality as in
  most chiptunes, but better.
  Version 1.1 tweaks the tempo of several songs to
  get their lengths closer to the original MIDIs.
  Also, E2M2 has a missing instrument added, and
  there are various other improvements to some
  other songs. The WAD is now compressed with 
  WadPTR to save some space (20%).

  this WAD praise in Doomworld's /newstuff

Base                    : New from scratch
Build Time              : Version 1.0, several months

Editor(s) used          : ModPlug Tracker and MIDI Orchestrator Plus! for
  music, WinTex and XWE for inspecting and
  inserting into WAD files, WadPTR for compressing
  the WAD to save some space.
Known Bugs              : The various module players in various source
  ports don't support crisp interpolation of the
  music, so the songs may sound a little cracky at
  times. If you want a fuller listening experience,
  save the music lumps to IT files, or look under
  "Web sites" at the end of this document to find
  them in their native IT format. The songs sound
  best in Winamp.
May Not Run With...     : doom.exe, any source port that doesn't support
  tracker-format music (check your docs for MOD, 
  module, or tracker support). Not sure if any
  ports beside ZDoom support this.
