New to all of this
« on: August 25, 2007, 17:26:36 »

Hello everyone.I'm a new member to this site,I originally joined because I am a huge fan of modulars,I own a few myself,and will  be purchasing a few soon...also uploading some private waves.However it seems this site is different than my initial understanding...oh well so much for my brain :-).I have a few freshman questions in regards to "Traking",and all the .dll files you all have so generously made accessable.First of all what exactly is a "tracker'?,how do you use it?,What is a "bit torrent"?,how do you use it?Last, but not least(and maybe the most "telling"of all my questions is...)are the.dll files only for PC's?I own a G5 Dual Core and  have been trying to use the various plug-ins in .dll format.Is there anyone here willing to assist?I would greatly appreciate it! ???

I'm not sure if you're right here, because modulars and moduels don't have anything in common afaik :D and modules are normally not purchasable...
G5, isn't that a Mac computer? I don't know how many module players there are and how good they are, and I especially don't know which trackers are available for the Mac. There is a audio library called "BASS" ( which can also be used on Mac systems, but the player itself ("XMPlay") is for Windows only. Now, what is a tracker? Basically, it's a piece of software that can be used to produce music. The most notable difference between a tracker (like MilkyTracker, ModPlug Tracker) and a sequencer (Cubase, Logic) is the direction the music is displayed: a tracker displays your piece of music vertically and a sequencer plays it horizontally. Get more information at Wikipedia.
Last but not least, Bit Torrent is a filesharing network. You need a Client like Azureus (I'm pretty sure it also works on Mac systems) to handle torrent files. Also have a look at Wikipedia to find out how it works.
