Vidyaz. Duh.

Duke It Out In D.C. MIDI Pack RELEASED!

If you’ve recently been hankering for some new Jimmidis (and I admit my output has withered down to a trickle lately), then no worries, I gotcha covered.

Waaaay back in 2013, Robin “NightFright” Reisinger contacted me about writing stuff for the Duke Nukem 3D addon “Duke It Out In D.C.“, which I was happy to do. The amount of time that has elapsed since that initial proposition has been largely down to my uni commitments, Square, and other big projects getting in the way of me really knuckling down and taking some time to study the works of Lee Jackson, Bobby Prince, and Jenna Ramsey (Duke: Caribbean, The Gate) in order to create a brand new soundtrack for DukeDC that did justice to not just the maps but those original composers too. I had a good chunk of time over the last Christmas season so that’s when most of this project was knocked out, although a good portion of the material in this pack does date back to 2013-2014.

The resultant 12 tracks I wrote are now part of the Duke DC Music Pack 2.0, which features the original looping MIDIs plus OGG renders with added metadata. This will require EDuke32 to run, and of course it is recommended that you play them with the Duke It Out In D.C. expansion (dukedc.grp) loaded.

Of course you can extract the MIDI/OGG files yourself and listen to them out of context, that also works. 😛 And yes, these are free to re-use in your own projects.

You can read a lot more in-depth stuff about the project’s (long-winded) gestation in the readme for this project.

Vidjeos!

The Videos page just got a pretty little makeover. It’s now a handy-dandy little thumbnail gallery, with each video having its own unique page on this blog, plus description and comment section. Feel free to browse the work I’ve done for various individuals on YouTube – from the comfort of this very website! In case the YouTube comment section is a thing that (understandably) intimidates and confuses you.

Click here to head over there now!


You’ll also notice the sidebar has changed somewhat. Featured videos are now a… um, feature of it. These are simply the videos I have contributed some of my best work to – some are recent, some are not so much, I simply made a selection that covers a broad spectrum of both music and visuals. All you have to do is click the thumbnails in the sidebar and you’ll get taken to the respective video’s page on this site.

Speaking of the sidebar, I’ve also provided a link to my Twitch channel where, you guessed it, further videos happen. I don’t stream too often, and granted it’s more of the gaming side of my online personality you’ll see there what with all the Doom maps and mods I play through, but if you’re interested in my critical commentary of what’s coming out of the Doom community these days, head on over to my Twitch channel and check it out.
