id Seeks Sound Designer

The mail that keeps rolling in about this indicates people are too excited about the prospect of potentially working at id Software (and the news is too quiet at the moment) to let this wait for a morning "Help Wanted" post. id Software's Christian Antkow updated his .plan with word that they are looking for a sound designer "to work on weapon sounds, impact sounds, monster sounds, world ambience, machinery, etc." for DOOM III. There have long been reports of negotiations with Nine Inch Nails' front-man Trent Reznor to handle sounds on the DOOM remake (story), but the help wanted does not make mention of music design, and does not rule out collaboration, saying the position will "be responsible for creating a lot of sounds that will be used in the game." Also, for those who like to hunt for hints at where development stands in this project, there's this about the contract position's time frame: "The length of the contract may last upwards of six months, and may run longer if required."

22. Re: NIN is already working on the sounds Dec 12, 2002, 08:04 Gubbins
NIN worked on the demo for E3 - but nothing is confirmed for the final game.

From what I've read, Trent did it as a favour while he and iD talked about the posibility of working on the game.

But he has helped iD alot with Doom 3 so far and I'd imagine NIN/Trent would be involved in the final game, but maybe only in the music.

My theory:
He cant be expected to do all the music and the sound effects could he? iD will do the sound effects (maybe with a little help from Trent) and NIN will do the music.
