A new Milkytracker port for AmigaOS 4.1 has been released. The world of electronic music has traditionally been a fairly expensive venture, whether you’re paying for expensive hardware or software. MilkyTrackeris a music sequencer and it represents music tracks as an arrangement of discrete musical notes positioned in one of several channels, at discrete chronological positions on a timeline. Sound trackers were born with the Commodore Amiga in 1985. The Amiga mounted an audio coprocessor named Paula, which could be “programmed” by sending a module through DMA producing something similar to wavetable mixing. Paula can mix up to 4 sequences (tracks) of signed linear-quantized 8-bit two’s complement PCM sound samples and send the mixed sound to an stereo DAC.
