What's the software? It looks like Impulse Tracker circa 1997. Are people really still using tracker-style mixers?

ModPlug Tracker, says the guy.

The tracker UI is still the best one for arranging a bunch of samples in a timeline, and for many of the effects done in this where it doesn't necessarily make a lot of sense to set up a more traditional sampler. There's tracker-style VST instruments to make it easier to integrate a tracker into a more modern workflow.

Sorry, I'm just amazed. I made some IT mods back when alt.binaries.sounds.mods was the only way to distribute them, and I played with Cakewalk a little when it came out and messed around with eJay a bit. To my eyes the interface used here looks like a step backwards.

"Created using ModPlug Tracker"

You should've watched to the end. :)

I still use MODs in my games. They're a great balance between MIDI (yuck) and MP3 (not good if you are trying to keep file sizes minimal). MODplug Tracker is by far the easiest and most user friendly MOD Tracker still around.

The thing I miss most about making music with Impulse Tracker was the ability to load up any arbitrary file and mess around with loop points without a lot of work. I was able to discover all sorts of cool sounds that way. One of my most popular songs from that era is "Return of the Files" where I used a bunch of non-sound files to make the entire song (MS-DOS 6.22's command.com made an excellent drum loop, incidentally).

Fluffy, I'd like to hear that.


tons of people still use trackers. Hell, I'm pretty sure eck and quite few well klnown producers use Littlesound DJ for some stuff.

As for the actual "song"? Meh.

Wow, Windows can be used to create banal music. What a world we live in.
AdamOfEden
i don't understand hating on this video for not liking the song. it's the fact that he used just the sounds from windows that is interesting.
Babies Ate My Dingo
Awesome. I can appreciate the work that went into that.
SolRo
It's pretty good

Decent but not spectacular tracker music. Neat concept. The whole thing felt like an intro, though, I klept waiting for the actual song to start.

The Great Hippo
Am I missing something? Weren't people doing this with video game themes (using only Windows sound files) back on YTMND over a year ago?

Still, I like the song, so 3 stars.
Repomancer
The comment is appropriate, as Brian Eno did some of the XP sounds (like the wakeup and shutdown noises).
mysterycar
no kidding? what an amazing coincidence that it just so happened that he was both involved in creating the sounds AND mentioned in the comment.

it's almost as if the person posting the video already knew that

Enjoy

Why is this guy trying to make his posts bilingual in Japanese?

Interesting composition though.

I like it, but changing the pitch of the tones to create a melody feels like cheating.
zerobackup
agreed
