I have always liked to create music on computers. Back in the Apple ][+ days I made quite a few annoying musical ditties with The Music Construction Set and this continued into the Apple ][gs days. My software was never really sophisticated enough until I discovered tracking and mods when I upgraded to Windows 95. After a few years of noodling around, I finally had enough material to release a CDs worth of my electronic music, The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133. This disc was comprised of my first purely digital (no more cassette 4-track recording!) musical compositions. The sound is a little rough due to the primitive, non-pro software I used, but I am more-or-less happy with the way it turned out. You can buy The Exciting Sounds of a Compaq P133 from my Bandcamp page. Or, if you are a mooch: Download the entire album for free (.ZIP)
After compiling this CD, I upgraded my tracking software and followed up P133 with the sonically superior Upgrade Downgrade (also available for download).
