MilkyTracker Tracks & Songs / Re: My first song
« on: December 27, 2008, 09:44:10 »
Heheh, sounds a little bit like an underwater atmosphere and a bit like Christmas :) , so the title "WATERLilys" is perfect.

My songs aren't so much longer than yours at the moment, so i don't really have any tips for you.


You are welcome, Matthias ^_^ . Good to read, that it's helpful.

Btw. i finnaly managed to fix all the things, that i mentioned before.

So, please reload the Tutorial (with the Reload Button in your Webbrowser) before reading it again, so that it loads the Changes :) . Please do that with every Page of the Tutoial or simply download and read the Offline Version (can be found on the Startpage of the Tutorial or simply here:

Greetings and a nice Christmas/Holiday to you all,

Thank you for linking it on the Documentation Page, raina ^_^ .

I know, that there are still some things to do, like:

- Translate the Image Content;
- link the workfiles in the Tutorial;
- fix errors, like typos and stuff like that.

And yes, i know, that my little Tutorial Song is ugly, but i'm still learning, how to create Music  :P

Milky Tutorial - The Basics - First Steps Tutorial

here you can find my little Tutorial about the First Steps in creating Music with Milky:

and the workfiles (tutorialsong) can be found here:

If the Tutorial is 100% complete and hopefully bugfree, i'll create an archive for reading it offline.

I created the english version with my simple schoolenglish, but i hope, it'll be good enough for all you Milky Newbies :) . Btw. there are two Version: A German version and an English Version. You may read the version, you understand best ^_^ .


PS: maybe you want to include the Tutorial in the Wiki, if there will be something like a Wiki here in Future. And you are free to refine (the English Version) oder translate the Tutorial (into an other language, if you like).

Hello Tr4ck3uR,

to play a song, you can use the "Play Sng"-Button and to create a song, wich plays only one time, you can add a "F00", at the effects section on one channel, to the end of your song :) .

But, i have to say, that most of the Songs created in Soundtrackers (like Milkytracker) are designed to play infinite (with a loop point) or just from start to end.

Hope, it helps,

Hello durk,

You can try to change the settings in the Config section in Milkytracker :). To do so, click at "Config" and after that on "I/O". There you can try to set a lower Buffersize if needed. And please try to change the Driver if possible.

The other thing, that might help, is, to select no interpolation or only the linear interpolation and a lower samplerate.  8)

Hope it helps,

PS: heheh, you were faster, raina :D

Thanks for the info. I hope that'll get me started, together with the other guide.

Do you think it is a good idea to start making a module of some other music track that i really like, to get started with the principles of the program, and not having to care about being as creative on my first attempt.

Yes, why not? That's a good idea. If you are unable to hear the melody by-ear, you can always try a free ear training program like Gnu Solfege or such.

Or you try "Ear Training 101" online at:

Hello Egren,

i created a first-steps-tutorial for milky in german and got it to a friend, who wants to translate it into english.  If you understand german, you can have the german version, if not, you'll have to wait until my friend has translated it.

for now, here is a short description, how to start:

- you load or create your own samples or ask someone, if you can use his/her samples;
- create instruments from the samples, if needed;
- go to the first channel and create a drumpattern (a pattern is this page with musical information in a tracker), you'll have to push "Rec" first or hit space;
- you only need to push "y" on your computer keyboard to get a "C-4" Note on the cursors position
- go up and down with the arrow-/cursor-keys on your Computer Keyboard, so you can reach the other positions, where you can place notes;
- if you have a instrument that is a melodic instrument and no drum sound, you can play notes with the Computer Keyboard (use "yxcvbnm," and "qwertzui" for octaves 4 and 5);
- if you need more octaves, hit one of the Function-Keys (F1 to F6 or so);
- the black notes or keys can be found inbetween the two octaves on your computer keyboard;
- if you want to create more then one pattern, you can hit "Ins." and after that you can activate the pattern you want to change and click + or - under "Ins.";
- the green dots are for volume (00 to 40) and the pink and yellow dots are for effects;
- if you need more or less than 8 channels, please hit "Add" or "Sub";
- don't forget to save your song after every big step :)

if you need example files, please go to: and download the .xm files - you can load them into milky with a click on "Load", easy huh? :)
They sound dark and a bit like Prodigy  :D
