Tracking / The 10 most common tracker mistakes

# 11 - be aware of your format... there are many tunes that use odd channel numbers in xm for example.. no big deal if you have a hexeditor on your side but ft2 DOES NOT support odd channel numbers..

all creativity springs from your head. i suggest you make up your mind and have an idea of what you want to create.. what are you aiming for with your "tracked" music?? do you want to make "music" (sound,noise,beats whatever you call it) or do you want to "know all the tricks" and be more of a programmer than a musician.. keep this in mind when you read so called "tutorials"..

tracking is more than an art of sample alignment!

try as much different trackers as you can get, but stick to one of them and learn all the commands, shortcuts and how you can create noise from that... try to minimize yourself. use only 4 samples (or 8, 16 etc) for your track. sit down and create some samples in stomper for example and create basic drumkits, chords, pads, strings etc.. make yourself a fundament of samples (kits) and background layers (pads, chords, strings fx.. etc)..  this will help you finding your style.. use these samples over and over again and learn how they behave in combination with other samples and effects.. test it.. do lots of patterns.. dont delete "crap tunes", enhance them.. or leave them (you'll love them after some years, hehe!) this involves countless hours of practice and even if you think you are "good" and "this particular" tune is dope as hell, it is not!
