The reference pages I used on the page were removed. I had used references from "NatonMaster Encyclopedia" but they were removed citing that it was a copy of wikipedia.

Does anyone know any good sites that I could use to add external references to the article?  The more external references the article has, the less likely it is to get deleted.

A simple google search didn't lead me to much, so I'm asking you the community for links.

Feel free to post them here or edit the wikipedia page yourself :)

Thank you so much!  It's really incredible.
I've been admiring the clever use of the Dxx command on your youtube videos.  It really takes the artistry to a whole new level.
Do you have a site with your modules on it?  The links on the youtube videos are a dead. <--dead <--also dead

I added some more information from the NationMaster post this morning. I didn't realize that Raina had written that as well.  The article is largely plagiarized from his work.

I don't know if adding further development history would be too esoteric or not for the wikipedia page.
I did make note not to copy the part about Milkytracker being closed source, since that's no longer the case.
I've been thinking that maybe I should include a list of formats it does import. As well as increasing the number of links to other related softwares.

Also I noticed that Peter Barth is not credited anywhere outside this nationmaster article and the source code.  I didn't know if I should mention him in the article of if he wanted to keep his name private.

Thank you for welcoming me. :)

Obviously all should feel free to edit the page to improve it.  I threw it up quickly so that there would be something there instead of dead links on other wikipedia pages. It immediately got marked for deletion as non-notable software so I started fancying it up as fast as I could.
The reason I touted it is because I wanted to distinguish it as notable software.  Although I've worded it poorly, the truth is I doubt any piece of music composition software has been ported to so many platforms.  Can anyone name anything audio related that has been on pocketpc, mac osx, linux and windows? That's significant and noteable.
I also think it's the only tracking option for pocketpc, which is how I became a Milkytracker user. In fact, it's the reason I ditched palmOS for pocketPC.
I added the mod tracking paragraph to make the article less esoteric.  Perhaps someone here would like to rewrite it.
I didn't add the jam channel section so I can't comment on that.
I used the term Envelope Generator because many of my hardware synths refer to their envelopes as EGs.  I'll change it to envelope editor.    Regardless, most synths have at best 6-8 stage envelopes with undefineable loop points. I don't remember that becoming common until the Native Instruments soft synths started including them after Absynth. (even Reaktor doesn't have them.)

Wikipedia is community driven, and by no means am I on expert on Milkytracker. I announced the article here in hopes that it people who had more knowledge would edit the article and improve it. I hope that all will do so.  I will keep saving the revisions so that in 3 days when it get's deleted, I'll create it again from the last revision and hopefully it will be full featured enough that it won't get auto-marked for deletion for not being notable.  I'm not being biased here when I say that this is a very notable piece of software.

I couldn't figure out how to fix that.  I looked up some code on wikipedia but it didn't work.

I thought it was a shame that the Wikipedia article on MilkyTracker had been deleted. It's referenced on many other tracker pages and the truth is, it deserves it's own because it's a unique tracker.  It's hard to think of such a complex software that's been ported to so many platforms, and it's the only real tracker for the PocketPC platform.
I've created a basic page for it again:

Please help me flesh it out more with it's history, facts and citations.  This really is special software and it deserves it's place on Wikipedia.

Help me find that... / [found] Mod from MilkyTracker video tutorial

There used to be video tutorials on the MilkyTracker site. I suspect they may have been created by Strobe. I don't know, anyway, I'd love to have some of the modules created in some of those tutorials. For example, the mod in the "Gain compression tutorial - Trick for simulate compression.avi"
(It is possible that I renamed the video a little after downloading it)

Anybody know the name of the mod or it's author?
(or where the videos went?)
