Random background sounds / music [CD audio]

edited 2020 May 20 in General
I have just rediscovered the pleasure of Heretic after 25 years. All strength to the doomsday engine developers.

I have a issue where the front end is playing random musical notes. This continues into the game, it really is quite off putting as it is totally at odds with the game? Any ideas on how I can trace what is driving the sound.


  • What operating system are you using?

    There is the option of changing the music player backend in Doomsday's Audio settings. In general, FluidSynth for music and FMOD for sfx should be quite solid. The alternative is SDL_mixer for both music and sfx, but FluidSynth does a better job rendering MIDI music.
  • Hi! I had the same problem. An annoying background music playing during gameplay and on the Doomsday main screen.
    In my case the solution was to go into options and under Audio->CD Plugin set "Disabled".
    The audio I was hearing to was the Audio CD I had into my player.. I ensure you it was driving me crazy :scream:
