View Full Version : Rip And Tear (NBv3, soon other boards)

11-17-2016, 07:40 PM

Ladies and gentlemen, I present "Rip And Tear"

It's 95% comprised of edited and arranged clips from the soundtrack to the video game Doom (2016) by Mick Gordon. The rest of the sounds are just select sounds from a standard lightsaber to give it that extra "oomph" in the clashes. Doom has an extremely dark and visceral soundtrack with very evil and distorted guitar and synth sounds that were just screaming at me to be made into a Sith saberfont. I've only tested it with a NBv3 so far (8 swings, 8 clashes, poweron/off, boot/hum) but I also have a saber with a Spark 1 that I can test with later on with more swings/clashes, lockup, and blaster sounds. The saberfont itself has 19 clashes and 26 swings. I may narrow those down if they sound too different.

Also, my saber is actually blue and I don't have a red LED so I shifted the hue of the video to a red colour because I thought it was more fitting to demonstrate with.

Hey Inspired, nice work!
I'd be willing to test this on a Crystal Focus if you'd like.
If you have all the CF sounds and whatnot.
I've been testing fonts for some time for Baconwizard at FX, so I do have some experience,
for what it's worth :)
I will PM you, and let you decide.

Sent you a PM. ;)

I've got all the sounds ready (for testing, anyway). I narrowed them down to:

blaster x4
boot x4
clash x16
hum x1
lockup x1
poweroff x1
poweron x1
spin x4
swing x16

Once it gets past a bit of QA, I'll release it.

I finished it! Added more sounds for a more complete set. Works with both NEC and Plector boards. I made a demo video:

I lime it. I'm a big fan of Doom as is. That'll be a good one to add to the library. Good work.
