Creating digital music is the main purpose of MadTracker. Basically, this software is based on the concept of a ‘tracker’- type sequencer, normally used to directly compose music. It comes with an interface that’s clean and easy to use, with which it’s possible to sit down with the program and get great results.

It has comprehensive support for VST, ASIO, and Rewire, and takes up very few computer resources. The pack comes with 8 included effects, over 70 high-quality examples, and some song demos to start up with. You can also take a look at the website to get more help and familiarize yourself with the software.

Sit down and compose music

One of the best things about MadTracker is that it has little or no system requirements. It works on all Windows computers, and the pack comes with lots of benefits. For example, MadTracker lets you explore files, access the chat support, perform volume ramping (sometimes known as click/pop reduction), to name just a few.

The only thing you may find a little confusing about MadTracker is that the sequences aren’t shown in ‘time mode’, but displayed vertically. It’s a mere detail, but it could lead to some confusion at first. It’s just a question of familiarizing yourself—the system itself works perfectly.

With loads of benefits and without a doubt easy to use, your imagination is the only limit with MadTracker.
