My Tracker Tunes
« on: 7 Jan '06 - 00:35 »
Folks, I just finished uploading a ZIP containing all of my meager attempts at Tracker tunes throughout the decade(s). Needless to say, some of them suck <G>, some aren't even "music" at all, while others are semi-decent -:) Note that I'm primarily a MIDI musician, but have dabbled with Tracker format music on and off throughout the years.


Contents of ZIP (not including the various readme text files):

BREAKDWN.MOD = "Break It Down" (an oldie, and a suckie <BG>).

CLINTON_.MOD = "Clinton's State of the Union Address" (not music at all, but rather a funny thing <G>).

COL.MOD = "Computers On Line" (a severely lame tune that I composed for a demo scroller that I coded as an online advertisement for my business years ago).

GRABBAG.XM = "Grabbag" (XM converted from the MIDI of "Grabbag", the main theme to Duke Nukem 3D, with permission from Lee Jackson).

JERKYBOY.MOD = "The Jerky Boys Rap" (Hehe, a tape of this one got played eons ago on one of the local radio stations (Y-100) when I lived in Miami).

LOSTSOUL.XM = "The Lost Souls" (XM converted from an original MIDI that I composed for "Eternal DOOM").

OVERDRIV.MOD = "Overdrive" (an oldie, but getting a little better).

ROCKYTOP.XM = "Rocky Top" (WHAT???! A **Bluegrass** Tracker tune <LOL>?!).

STARSING.XM = "If Only Stars Above Could Sing" (tune that I composed for a commercial project a few years ago that unfortunately went belly up ("Curse of Pyragon: Fabled Lands"), also has lyrics so's you can sing along <G>).

SUSPENSE.XM = "Suspense" (XM converted from an original MIDI that I composed for "Eternal DOOM").

TECHFUNK.XM = "Technical Funk" (not finished, but getting there... one of these days <G>).

TVENGINE.MOD = "Jet Engine Sounds for Terminal Velocity" (not music, but rather a $%it-rig that I created for the old DOS game "Terminal Velocity". The idea was to substitute the in-game Tracker music with this file, in order to have spaceship jet engine sound effects when flying around in the game).

UAC50.XM = "UAC 5-0" (XM converted from an original MIDI that I composed for "Eternal DOOM").


Snag the ZIP from here -> http://jasonwilliams400com.startlogic.com/snor/weeds/Stuff/Weeds_Tracker_Tunes.zip , readme (also included in the ZIP with several other text files) is here -> http://jasonwilliams400com.startlogic.com/snor/weeds/Stuff/Weeds_Tracker_Tunes.txt .

Hope ya'all like 'em -:)

It's been a really LONG time since I played around with Fast Tracker II, but got the urge just the other day. So, I've been recently playing around with the program for a short time (with all of the program's options set to be as Amiga "ProTracker" compatible as possible), in conjunction with the old Amiga "Ultimate SoundTracker" "ST-##" sample disks.

Here is the resulting "MOD" format music file, "Lamer!", and like the title states, it's an EXTREMELY lame Tracker song!

And lastly, my second new Techno Tracker tune, and it's not quite as lame as "Lamer!" above LOL! :)

"Not Enough Sleep!"

Hehe, 4-channel 8-bit L-R-R-L stereo retro Tracker goodness :)
