I started experimenting with music on the PC around 1995, using a midi arrangement program called Evolution Audio. It did allow importation of sound samples, but I was a bit afraid to use them! Editing .wav files seemed a bit daunting to me at the time, as I was pretty much a noob with computers.
After a year or two of fiddling around with midi tracks, I had gotten a bit frustrated with the cheesey sounds that I was creating, so I stopped trying to make music and started making websites, programming and 3D modelling. Anyway, last year (2009) I came across a great little freeware program named Milkytracker. I loved how it worked, and the appearance of the interface really appealed to my geeky side (the linearity reminded me of programming with line numbers on a BBC Micro computer).
So I had a good fiddle with Milkytracker, and absolutely loved it. The only problem was that it couldn't use VST plugins, which looked pretty sexy and useful to me. I went searching for other tracker programs that could support VST's, and was chuffed to find the freeware program, Madtracker 2. The interface to MT2 has a few quirks, but after some initial head-scratching, I found it quite quick and easy to use.
All of the tracks featured on this website are made with Madtracker and the Goldwave audio editor. I had great fun making them, and I hope that some of you will enjoy listening to them.
Have fun and thanks for visiting,

Some nice tracks on here. Downloaded some. You really have some sort of own, recognizable sound.
Greetings from The Netherlands, peace
