Kind of good..but what software?

Hey. So i probably saw this link here somewhere - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsU3B0W3TMs .

I was wondering what software the guy used?

ModPlug Tracker, as you mentioned.

If you're interested in that workflow, you might like to try www.Renoise.com Same sort of thing (a tracker), but it's bang up-to-date with the modern recording world (ASIO, VST/VST-Instrument, multi-sampling, Midi sequencing, flexible graphic automation, routing, DSP effects, blah blah blah).

Tightly coded, too. The ASIO is great. Am using buffer samples of 64 (1.5ms) on a firewire Traveler without any dropouts or overly huge CPU strain (5%>15% of 2.66GHz quad CPU for demo of Amplitube v2 at 1.5ms latency!). The guys that code Renoise are constantly updating it, and it's a proper community too.

Another vote for Renoise. The documentation is a bit confusing but you can learn much but studying the demo songs that come with it.

Sounds really good, I'll take a look! I got the hang of ModTracker pretty quickly. Is Renoise freeware?

The demo is fully functional, apart from Wav rendering and ASIO for Windows. For those you'd need to register (was about €50 last time i looked). Registering also gives you free upgrades for the duration of a whole integer version. (say 1.x to 2.x).

I registered years ago though [version 1.23 i think it was]), and the latest Renoise is still only at version 1.91! The coders are generous. Renoise has changed beyond belief since v1.23.

really getting in to this tracking malarky!

I wanted to create a piece using only water and metal sounds to correspond with an installation piece I've made, I think it's going well! It's sort of like the group called 'Stomp', don't know if anyone's heard of them?!
