So I’ve started tracking again. It had been so long since I’d last written music that when I discovered a reimplementation of Impulse Tracker (called Schism Tracker) last week, I just couldn’t resist. So this past weekend, instead of vegetating in front of some random game, I wrote. I raided the sample packs page from The Freesound Project and went to work. I must admit that I was quite a bit out of practice. I’d almost completely forgotten all the shortcut keys I’d grown so used to in the past. One of the major frustrations I had while writing was the sketchy *undo *command. It seems only some operations can be undone, so when you accidentally overwrite a note, or a whole channel, too bad. But I learned, and slowly started getting quick at tracking again.
So without further ado, here’s the first track that I’ve put togheter in about eight years. Please remember that this isn’t a final cut, nor is it anywhere near being complete, but I wanted to get it out there as soon as I could. (You may notice a 70’s Europop sound with a Russian sounding melody, it’s deliberate.)
