My tracking career is quite unremarkable. If you search for my name on modarchive, you will get a sampling of some of my creations from 2001 and 2002. Apart from maybe a tune called City Moon and a chiptune A Trip To The Netherlands, they offer a bucket of cringe and range from cheesy to banal. In my defense, these were some of my first attempts at music and I was really inexperienced. I switched away from trackers in early 2003.

I maintain a strong interest in the theory of computer/electronic music and have spoken about it on several occasions:
Boring Music and How to Make it Interesting

Interested to try tracked music again, this time with some knowledge under my belt, I produced several minimal house tunes using ModPlug Tracker.
My new releases:
Lid
Twizzy II
Tofu
Holographic

Occasionally participate in demoparties. Twice won 1st place in the video compo. Music written for the Deadline demoparty, including links to award winning videos:
Deadline EP

Outside of tracking and demoscene:

I am somewhat known in the ambient circles:
project "droning

I also produce minimal and microhouse. Find my current productions here:
berlin is quiet

mpxvm: Hey man!

Modarchive logged me out, so now I have no idea whether the message I responded with was sent or not. So apologies if you receive two very similar messages ^_^

By sonic variation I mean variation in sound (and not in melodies), because in rhythm-based tracks the melodic variation is pretty limited. So you need movement somewhere else.

The first and more obvious thing is playing around with volume of notes, making sure your sequences and even drums are more dynamic. This seems simple, but you can do so much with variations on volume!

Regarding offset, this is the command available in trackers called Sample Offset. In XM this is 9xx. What it does is begin playing the sample from a different starting point.

Because classic trackers do not have filters, what people tended to do was use a sample of a sound that went though a filter sweep and then play it from different point using the 9xx command. Like, you would do 901, 905, 907 to get the sample to sound differently.

So, focusing on things like these is key to getting some movement in your tracks.

Re: Hi Louigi, thanks for the feedback at FUMIX 123, I have to inform myself regarding offset and sonic variations, right now I'm googling the terminology to find what exactly this is. I know that my tracks are suffering of lack of variation and I'm struggle to fix the problem for many years :) Best Regards, mpxvm
