Another one - more Impulse Tracker acid:

Free Motion Machine (tech-house, 125 BPM)

This is my Flashback 2014 entry (where I placed 3rd!) Here I tracked the x0xb0x line as MIDI notes in IT instead of using the onboard sequencer and clock sync - worked great!

BTW I made all my samples on a Roland hardware sampler this time instead of messing with a laptop line-in. Aside from having to dig out a few zip drives to transfer them around this was by far the easiest way I've found to get really high quality recordings. I should have been doing this ages ago.

I am EXCEEDINGLY pleased with how this track turned out. The mixing & "mastering" especially - it doesn't even really sound like a tracker file to me.

I can't seem to run this, am I missing a lib? Running from the command line gives:

Your description is pretty vague to go by. Could this be it?

Cool, thanks for the tip. Have printed out your docs for reference. :D Noticed a couple mentions of a highpass filter - does IT have one or is that something you added for MPT? I can find no mention of it in the original Impulse Tracker files.

There is a HPF 'trick' in IT which involves differencing a sample with its inverse, LP-filtered. I love those sorts of hacks. Or there's the way I did highpass filters in this song - bake them in with a sample editor! That felt like cheating though.

I'm already working on some new tracks with this setup - so awesome being able to control my gear from an interface I really like again. Never had any luck using MIDI under Schism. Renoise is really good, but that involves fighting with ALSA+JACK config on my "modern" system which just saps out my creativity instantly.

Thanks! No, I didn't make any macros for this one. I had an idea to add MIDI pause/resume as a macro and use that in an 8-step breakdown in the middle of the song (i.e. pausing the 303 & 202 patterns for two bars) but I didn't have time to implement that properly as I was rushing to finish the track. The documentation for the macro system is not very well written.

ITs MIDI-out is very full featured and powerful, considering it came out in the last patch ever to the program - but it's also pretty clunky in some ways. If only it had been developed a bit further...

Hey all, since I've dusted off my account here recently I thought I'd post my latest tune. This song was made almost 100% using DOS tools, chiefly Impulse Tracker 2.14p5, on a Pentium 233:

Under a Foreign Sky (click through to Soundcloud for full description!)

I used all the advanced IT features that I never got around to trying back in the day when it was current - MIDI out (note data & sequencer clock!), instrument mode, resonant filters, NNAs, volume/pan envelopes, panning commands in the volume column, etc. I'm still impressed with how powerful and stable this 15+ year old program is.

The hardware synths involved were a x0xb0x (sequenced w/MIDI clock), Roland MC202 (DIN sync clock from the x0x), JV-1010 (notes played via IT MIDI instrument) and Yamaha PSR-36 (sampled.) My original samples were recorded with Allsound Tracker 1.62F and edited in SamplEd 1.24. I also (mis)used a Roland S760 as a DA converter.

There are also a couple samples from the Amiga ST-xx disks and a couple ripped from other old mods over the years.

Unfortunately it ended up a bit short but I'm pleased with the result anyway. Enjoy!

Trying to find other mods by this techno/industrial/breaks artist. There are three here on ModArchive (1, 2, 3) - uploaded by me - and one more on Modland.

("Onslaught" is my fave of the bunch BTW - great track!)

Having no luck with Google on this. He had a Geocities page back a million of years ago with about 10-15(??) mods on it as well as other stuff (samples, beats), but the site is not archived on and the Wayback Machine (linked) does not seem to have saved any of the content. The others may be lost to history unless someone has them buried on their hard drive.

There are tons of artists who used the handle 'SubSonic' but this guy always signed his real name in the text - T. Walter.

I've uploaded what I have. Anyone else?

Cool, thanks! I think what I might have had the source for was a player routine (for FT 4/6/8 channel mods) - was a long time ago though.

Regardless, I have the tracker now, which was what I really wanted.  ;D

Hey all,

Anyone know where I still find FT1? Its really hard to search for since all the results come up for FT2 due to Google's auto suggest. Have tried and Pouet with no luck. Unfortunately I only have 500mb/month mobile internet so I can't search every odd archive or mirror that's out there.

I vaguely remember having a copy back in the day that came *with source* but who knows, might be thinking of something else.
