I've been making music for a while now, but exclusively from a hardware approach. When I got my Starmax a few years ago, I thought I could start using a computer to make music, but that particular platform was a bad choice as it makes poor use of its resources. Even when running Linux on it, I still could not do that much, because most Linux music software seems to work better on x86/Athlon hardware - the whole endian issue.
So now I own an Athlon box and have Planet CCRMA installed (Fedora Core 3). Now I'm having fun.
Some credit where credit is due: 'machines' and 'cablebox' use loops which IIRC were obtained from Fizzarum's website as a teaser for a set of sounds they had on offer. The other two tracks use sounds from some old commercial releases by a band from Manchester. I'll let you guess....
- fade_v2 mp3 ogg
- machines in the grass mp3 ogg
- the_cablebox_fixed mp3 ogg
- the_motionless_bird mp3 ogg
Another rapidly developed track. Done with Seq24, Noiseweapon from Pawfal, Ecamegapedal, and recorded with JACK Timemachine
These may not push everyone's button (especially tryandkeepittogether), but hopefully you'll enjoy them in some way, shape or form.
This is the software I've used so far for music creation...
