ModTomit here...I make music with various trackers, but most often OpenMPT ImpulseTracker files are what I prefer to make. I like to make my own style of chiptunes, and have evolved a formula over time which has become: self drawn waveform samples, no drums, 3 or 4 channels, and 2 to 3 minutes long. Not all of my songs follow this formula or even are chiptunes, but its one I use.

I am a bit shy.

I started using OpenMPT when I was about 14 years old in the late 90s back when it was ModPlug Tracker. I had no musical knowledge and it was years before I made anything worthwhile, then I learned to play guitar and self-studied music theory both classical and modern and now...here I am!

Combinebobnt: You're quite welcome. I really enjoyed your music, and I hope to hear more in the future!

Re: Thanks for the ratings, I don't get feedback on my stuff often, so to know how I'm doing is quite valuable.

Esprit Euphoetry: Hi, I cannot really record my desktop when I make a song because the process is fragmented usually. I'll write one part then do something else and then come back to it. Inspiration is needed to create something good, and its not always there for me. I'm not the kind of person who can summon it up. What I can say is that 90% of my music making process is in my head, and the remaining 10% is what I do in the tracker and that comes from years of playing an instrument, learning music theory, experimentation. So if you want to make modules, you should learn a lot about music, and the rest is not so hard.

Re: I would like to see how you make what you make, because this is the type of mods I can listen to over and over and I think I could add my own flavor. I would like to see a record of your desktop when you make your next song. I am comforterable with lyrics and not the simple tracking. I would like your help, since I like everything you make so far. That is if you have time, thanks, Esprit Euphoetry

ModTomIT: Well, if it isn't someone's cup of tea, they luckily have thousands of other modules to listen to, so don't take this as a "your style is no longer welcome" warning or anything. I just notice that a lot of the regular contributors on TMA seem to have big problems with moving out of their comfort zone so after a while, all their tunes start following the same pattern and sound the same. Which is a shame really, because why keep writing the same tune again and again if something new can be discovered by experimenting?

Re: Well, taking your suggestion I tried to do something new that had percussion and different samples but it didn't turn out very well, so I uploaded a chiptune I made back in 2013 called "Complex Chip" that has percussion and other waveforms. I'll keep trying new things and see if anything is worthy of being uploaded. Me and the friend who is the muse I make my music mostly for do like the single-square-wave-only aesthetic because it just...well, it has a certain, dark-but-not-evil feel that captures the subconscious mind sort of I think, but I could definitely see someone who listens to modarchive every day and wants to see what is new being bothered by all these songs I make if it's not their cup of tea, so I'll cut it out for a while.

Re: It sure is an interesting experiment to see what you can do with a single square sample, but don't you think it's time to move out of the comfort zone and try something different for once? :) Like, try adding other waveforms to add some variety in timbres, and maybe even add some percussion.
