MilkyTracker Tracks & Songs / flying apart
« on: January 08, 2010, 17:21:59 »
after an almost year long break, I picked up the tracker again. I never did finish a song before, but without having to learn the ins and outs this time I could just jump straight into crafting.

I'm starting simple, so it's st samples and 4 channels.

Criticism welcome.

Tracking / Tips on drum track
« on: March 31, 2009, 14:49:35 »
Inspired by the Tips on Melody thread. When I'm trying to compose a song, I'll have an idea of the kind of drum beat I want to go with it, not just an idea of the beat, but what type of drums too. I'll have quite a clear sound in my head of how I'd like it to come out, but I can never get close to representing it. I think my problem is I'm trying to jump in at the deep end and make advanced loops like those I've heard from commercial songs. I need to scale back and learn the basic of basics about composing a drum loop. To compose a drum loop first and then fit a song around it. Then once I've mastered this art I can be more flexible later on.

Do you have any tips or rules of thumb on creating drum loops?

Also, does anyone here use single samples containing full drum loops? I didn't think this was the done thing - using loop samples - in Tracking, but whilst dissecting some modules I found this is exactly what Andrew Sega had done. What's your position on this?

MilkyTracker Tracks & Songs / My longest track to date
« on: March 10, 2009, 15:51:16 »
After 2 months of on and off tracking I still find it really hard to commit myself to a single idea or melody, to lengthen and elaborate it. Here's what I've managed so far.

MilkyTracker Support / Looping samples seamlessly
« on: January 22, 2009, 00:29:43 »
I have quite a long sample - uploaded below - that I want to loop, but wherever I have the loop points the sample 'pops' on looping. I've managed to get quite close to the sound I want through trial and error, but the loop is still noticable. What's the best way to deal with this? My knowledge of editing samples is pretty much nil.

MilkyTracker Tracks & Songs / First attempt

Milkytracker is my first tracker, and this is my first song :)

Created using the 4 basic samples included with the tutorial.

Comments would be lovely.

The Lobby / Morning

Ahh, Amiga. I've been fascinated with tracker music since the Amiga days. Nowadays listenening to mods helps tap into the nostalgic yearning for those days gone by. Until now, my fascination with this music has only been in the capacity of a listener, but the other day I fell in love with MilkyTracker and I can really see myself creating something I'll be proud of with this, someday, hopefully in the not too far future.

Favourite mod ever: The Blue Valley by Karsten Koch

Thanks for listening  :)
