I came across this great group of videos about how to create music in Milkytracker. Milkytracker is a Fasttracker II clone that works on nearly every computing platform in existence. It is a music tracker, which means you compose music by aligning samples vertically within a hexadecimal marked grid that scrolls though patterns on the screen.
It’s different than modern midi sequencers and DAWs and is one of the oldest ways to compose music on a computer. Trackers are commonly used in creating chiptune style music because of their history in music creation for games and old computer systems.
I created a tutorial a while back on Milkytracker, but since then found some better ones than the one I made, or ones that are a little more in depth online so I thought I’d put together a playlist to help people get started in creating chiptunes with Milkytracker.
