Here's another list of MOD players for DOS, maybe you can find it here:

Some browsers will warn you that the website contains malicious files. You can probably ignore that.

Obviously he's a demo scene musician as far the modules go. It also mentions what groups he was in back in the day and all known modules, so far.

And also, for more info....

i forgot my favorite,     einstein-b4.mod can get all the tabs for the instruments, and it almost like meditative trance like and soothing to just play it over and over with the loop feature on this new G5N guitar effects processor I bought. 

I dunno maybe im in the small 1 percentile that are crazier than cat piss and have a bad piss poor taste in music and composition, but these einstein songs are something else.

Im high so its a long winded rant/question/recognition of gratitude.. ? lol.

Songs.. maybe the wrong choice of words...
but i can bet they are probably older than  most of your kids, if you have any, going back to the 90's i think, mid or late. or maybe my time line is misconstrued.

It was about mid or late 90's.. I stumbled across some weird video website site, abstract, weird? semi sexual, comedic, random videos blah blah. Probably around the time ebaums world or college humor came out or maybe before, maybe my time line is misconstrued.

But there was a post, about these Einstein  "mod" music files, had a list of them at the time, and said something to the effect that these were brain empowering, or thought provoking, brain stimulating type jargon. I can't remember exactly, At first I was like what music that might make me smarter. lmao HAHA, in the end they just stick in my head, like a virus or a plague.

20 years.. well over 20 years later, I was thinking about some of these catchy tunes, and I stumbled across this great site, thank god for the internet.

Now I am just curious, Who is this Einstein composer.. and are these short songs just video game tunes or real music tunes, or someone that actually composed this music from scratch? Just here for some disclosure on the matter.  I have to admit. I love using this "Melody Assistant" program to load up these mod files, and it took me quite some time to find a program to do so, but to just turn each instrument into a guitar tab, and than just jam out, the rest is history.

But Here i am almost 40 years old. And these catchy digitized video game noises have some how shaped me in a way. I am just curious does anyone have any information on the the composer or developer, writer, musician? whatever they would be called, that created these catchy funky up beat grooves? Are they from movies? a tv show.. inspiration? a video game? or just creative genius, or what's the story if anyone knows anything lemme know, lets discuss.

If you search this site for " Einstein " theres almost like an entire page full of them...
Which most i never heard.. Heres a list of a few that really stick out in my head..

pretty much all the einstein-"B" mods..

Not sure if they were the newest or latest or greatest or if who ever posted this collection only heard these songs, but theres about a page and a half of all of them and i haven listened to them all, it seems like these "b" class songs seem to be the top notch of them in my mind anyways, could be subjective. but they are just catchy as fuck. and i love them..

If anyone has any insight on them i would love to hear to hear about it.
Where they came from, who wrote them, how, why who what where when and why anything. lol..

Either way i thank you for this site, and the guy or guy(s) or gal or gal(s) that made these einstein tunes possible. I am new im probably using the wrong vocabulary here lol.

Downloaded all the torrents to my torrentbox and noticed that I'm getting an "unknown peer" error message. Looks like they've seeded some, but I don't know if I'm still able to seed or not. Ideas?

I think there is no way in the UI to figure out the exact version (probably since 2.14 was the only version with "minor minor" versions); p1-p3 can be identified from the saved IT files (OpenMPT and Schism can decode this information), but p4 does not differentiate itself as far as file saving is concerned (this is the version that added the virtual sound driver and "a few bugfixes and some minor enhancements" according to ITVSOUND.TXT).

I think the filter history is a bit confusing: I have a registered copy of IT2.14p2 (it will show up as p2 in OpenMPT/Schism), but it already has filters, and its UPDATE.TXT file (dated 21.12.1997) already mentions IT2.14p3 and the IT2.15 sample compression. Maybe it's really a p3 version but it was forgotten to increment the version number on some registered builds.
How do you tell which version you have? I find no way in the program to identify it. "IT -?" gives a help screen which prints "Impulse Tracker, Copyright (C) 1995-1999 Jeffrey Lim, Registered to [my name]", but no version number. The date of my IT.EXE is 17.06.99, size is 95930 bytes. Does not seem to match any of the ones in the link you supplied. But I do notice that 2.14p5 at Modland is more than 400 kb, so I guess the other ones (including mine) are compressed.

My FILTERS.TXT is dated 21.12.97, which coincides with the 2.14p3 "Merry XMas guys!" release. I don't have any of the network-related files from the 2.14p5 release. I do remember fiddling with the DirectX-stuff in 2.14p4, but in the end I just ditched it and used pure DOS mode for IT.

I came across a module in my collection called, which I also remember having back in the day. I believe this was shipped with one of the patches as a showcase of the filter capabilities in IT. Foobar reports this modules as 2.14p2.
