Hmm... Not as easy as I thought. Still, after some reflection and a couple of false starts, here's...

Last night I build my DOOM Array* in Reaper and really want to use it on a track but it's absolutely not suitable for that pic!

* You're asking what's that? check out Mick Gordon's video where he talks about the effects rig he set up to make the sounds for the DOOM 2016 soundtrack. http://gdcvault.com/play/1024068/-DOOM-Behind-the - he talks about the rig around 17 mins in but the entire thing is well worth watching if you're even remotely interested in sound design.

Yeah count me in! Be interested to hear about that :)

I haven't played any of the recent DOOM games but I was weaned on the original back in the '90s, which had a really great soundtrack (co-produced by Nine Inch Nails if I remember correctly... or was that Quake?).

Here's my entry. The idea that I got from the pic was that's the final move of the dance. The "Intro" of this track is meant to be the ending of the song they danced to & this is the sounds from that suspension, dipping into a completely different world.

Had to quickly finish it as I'm now off. Adios.

Cool I'll chuck something together over the weekend.

It was Quake that featured NIN. They had a nine inch nailgun in the game that shot nine inch nails.

I suspect I won't have time yet again to produce even an irrelevant ditty (sorry Douglas!).
Spending all my spare muso time rehearsing with new funk rock band; they actually want to be tight, which is a new one on me!
Still, found time to do a bit last week with other band - the Badass Weeds - here's a rough-ish mix especially for the delectation and delight of Douglas, but it's too long for compo entry... Still, enjoy, or not!
