I've got to know it a little bit now and have put together a couple of patterns 'with all the bells and whistles'. Next step is to dupe the patterns, strip out some of the parts in the copies to make variations of them and create a song by stringing them together. It'll take an hour or so but I've been over-subscribed with other things at the moment so I've got it on standby for when I get a chill moment to do it.
The result will be 'ok and a bit of fun' but nothing to write home about if I'm honest. I do see the tracker has having a lot of potential for certain applications, especially with regards to sample manipulation.
I also think it will make the perfect travelling companion when things calm down on the virus front but where I'm at with it right now is that it's a very fun toy with potential use in a wider context. It's perfect for Jungle music but as a music production tool for my preferred genres (soundtrack/ambient/electronica) it's easier to turn on a couple of synths and get stuck into those if I'm honest.
That said I certainly don't regret buying the Tracker, and I do really like playing with it. The 'fill' feature is great for coming up with good ideas, though the lack of a 'transpose' feature (you can do it in realtime if you sacrifice one of the FX slots) is a bit strange.
In the weekend coming I'll post a couple of things I've got on the go in it; as I said, I need to create a chain of patterns rather than just stick up a loop of everything going at once first :)
