All of my stuff, including stuff from before visiting here, is archived in http://chunter.info - I made that site precisely because someone asked where to find all my music.

The earliest stuff I have worth looking for is on modarchive.org - http://modarchive.org/modules.php?80307

midnite.it is how I learned Impulse Tracker (transitioning from FT2, I liked IT much better) and is the first piece I shared on the internet, I started working on it in 2001 I think. I don't have any of my FT2 stuff anymore, because it was all shit ;) (Seriously, it took me from 1998-2000 for me to learn how to play a note on it. Prior to that, my computer music was MIDI with cheap FM synths.)

Awesome, will check out some of your stuff this weekend & send a couple links of my own. Deleted IT from the topic because I don't want this to be exclusive, you are welcome to share earlier Renoise works, acoustic recordings, or whatever :D

Great bass on midnite. I was never able to get good sounding bass going in impulse tracker. Hell, I still have trouble with bass in Renoise :) Nice housey vibe... Some of the chords on the pads remind me of some old Goldie songs.

I notice you didn't use very many tracker effects back then either :) I don't think I even knew how to do a note cut until I started using Renoise. I would just always set the volume to 00. In my first song ever, I used a drum loop, but I didn't know how to change the song speed, so I just pitched the drum loop to where it would loop in time with the patterns ... Of course it was playing faster than I wanted it to :)

Waiting at the starting line has got a nice laid back vibe to it. And you were just mentioning in Chotoro's comments this round that they had written something that sounded similar to Halcyon... I gotta say this does too! This is definitely the best of the 3 on modarchive. Very nice. It'd be great to hear you remake this... It could use to be a lot longer!

Now bring on some more! I'd particularly like to hear some old Airmann, Knetter, and ambtax1!

So... some old organic io...

Under my first music alias of "plikt", I present "phantasme 1 - bonzai rain". A dark drum&bass track I did in '99 and probably my favorite of my older IT stuff:

(It gets more interesting when the chip lead comes in at pattern 23)

Hahaha, from the song comments... "this comes from inner darkness and visions that cannot be described".. !
Wasn't I a little emo whino back then?

Next, "The beauty of us", after I had changed my alias to "i/o". This was written in 2002:

I wrote it for my girlfriend Cami, on the same laptop actually that I just did Autumnal Splendor on :) The laptop sucked back then too :)

A lot of my early songs had a heavy piano influence like this. Partly due to ripping a piano sample I liked out of a song called "organic climax" by a guy named Jigid... Which also influenced me early on (even part of the inspiration for my nickname). Hell, I can't even find a working link to the song online but I just uploaded it - http://www.loopproject.com/filebase/sdcompo/organic_io/orclimax.s3m... Looking back at it now, the tracking isn't even that great in it, but I always loved the harmonies...

---

and finally, "corner atmospheres", one of my early Renoise works (2005) and another of my favorites. Used some vsti's. Very harmonic electronic

Boy do I have a special present! I happen to have material that wouldn't really be that good compared to my songs of today, and it wasn't even created on a Macintosh computer! I have two games for the PS2 that I would use to create music, and they are MTV Music Generator 2 and Digital Hitz Factory. I never released this material until recently due to distribution difficulties, and I only recently recorded this stuff directly off of a Playstation 2. It has a bit of an audio cassette-like quality to them.

My MTV Music Generator 2 material may accidentally be in stereo (but given that they were made on a real TV, I don't think I could quite tell the difference at the time), while my Digital Hitz Factory material is more clearly in mono.

FURBY of 2004 TB

This song is so old it predates my first release on VGMix ever! This is because it was completed on 6/11/04, and it was produced on a real Playstation 2 with a real copy of MTV Music Generator 2. This is actually my favorite MTV Music Generator 2 so far (non-remix wise...)... but then again, I'm missing a memory card, and there's a bunch of material that really wouldn't work that well (not to mention a bunch of random notation... er, I really do consider this stuff to be musically immature, given that they're among the first ever to be produced and saved in any sort of digital data form. Plus, even this song has a bunch of random notation thrown in at some point). For those of you curious... unless it's sampled, this stuff really doesn't use any pre-made riffs.
This song is actually 2 loops plus fade-out. I would indeed do the fade-outs via the actual game itself.

Final Arena 3
https://www.box.com/s/gd6qzg6mpm77imvfep4i
This one was produced in Digital Hitz Factory, and was completed on 5/2/05. I actually released this song on Battle of the Bits as a Metal entry! Honestly, I had no time to produce anything, and this song was never released before... now, in comparison to the one above done about a year ago, this one is a bit more stable, although I'm using a bunch of sampled guitar riffs (I've gotten better at actually attempting to produce something OK musically). The song was originally 2 songs plus loop (and thus it is almost 20 minutes), but for the sake of filesize, this has been cut down to one loop (and thus I faded it out using Audacity instead of Digital Hitz Factory).

I happen to have a lot more, although the majority of this stuff will be from Digital Hitz Factory (my MTV Music Generator 2 material for the most part have really random notation). I also made remixes using both games, although I made more with Digital Hitz Factory.
Just consider me a person using a PPC Mac to make music... and to listen to your music! ^_^
