Music while playing

Hi guys,
What kind of music do you guys listen to while playing Quake?
I listen to hardcore dubstep. What about you?

Re: Music while playing

Honestly ... I usually still stick with the classic soundtrack.

Ditto. Unless there's a specific new track that goes with a specific map, I stick with Trent. His music is such an integral part of Quake's ambience that it's a real shame to replace it with anything else. When playing the mission packs, I do sometimes use Xolve's music that he released with his Epsilon build, because it's really good and I hate Sonic Mayhem's generic crap.

Re: Music while playing

I've been playing custom Quake maps since 2004 and never had the need to replace Nine Inch Nails tracks with anything else - there was a time I used to put the CD in the drive everytime I wanted to play, since the engines back then did not have .mp3 support.

One time I went for ripping all the official/unofficial stuff out there to try them out: Jeehun Hwang's SoA/DoE tracks, Methods of Destruction, Abyss of Pandemonium, Shrak and Malice, Ravages of Apocalypse as well as Travail. Then I realized I didn't long for them much and scrapped the idea.

I think nothing fits Quake like Reznor's ambient tracks.

Been playing with the official Quake 64 soundtrack quite a bit lately. It's really growing on me.

Indeed the Quake 64 soundtrack is a hidden gem. The "Trouble Found Me/House of Chton" is probably the darkest track in all of Quake. Props to Aubrey Hodges for caring about a N64 port enough to make this soundtrack.

Re: Music while playing

I play a lot of dark ambient when I map but usually play without music. Cryo Chamber is a great label for dark ambient music. Highly recommended. http://www.cryochamberlabel.com/

Ditto for this. I don't have any real attachment to the official NIN soundtrack, but Quake 64's is really good. I used to play with a rip of it, but unfortunately, I lost those files a while ago. I like that it's more noisy and percussive than the official one. When I play hipnotic, I use its soundtrack instead.

For unofficial music, before I used a source port, I used to play with Alice in Chains' Dirt in the drive. If you own a copy, I highly recommend it, it syncs up scarily well to the levels.

Re: Music while playing

I usually stick with the original soundtrack unless the map has custom music, at which point I go with that instead.  On rare occasion I'll put Lustmord on in the background instead.

Lustmord! Perfect Quake mapping music for me too.

Re: Music while playing

For me, the original soundtrack is a big part of the quake experience. It's embedded in the textures

Re: Music while playing

I play with original soundtrack. Thank god the cd is no longer needed in the drive when playing with new Quake ports like darkplaces.

Re: Music while playing

I do prefer the original soundtrack the most by far, but I also do mix it up from time to time. I like to go with some good old epic battle music occasionally.

Re: Music while playing

The original Quake soundtrack is awesome. I often set it as background music when doing something.

Re: Music while playing

By coincidence, The fat of the Land by the Prodigy. I still associate that album with Q1 and Vice versa.
