1. mp3: The Conquest

    Back in 2000, I spent a few days writing music with some software called FruityLoops. The program lets you create layered tracks by adding pre-recorded instrument sounds to beats in a measure. You can fiddle with things like tempo and volume, and it also lets you apply notes to combinations of sounds to generate chords.

    Since I wrote the tune (almost 9 years ago!), the software has been through numerous releases (it’s now called FL Studio 8), and probably has all sorts of bells and whistles. Of course, there are many other packages these days that let you do the same thing.

    As this is one of the oldest recordings in my music archive, it only seems appropriate that this is the first I post to the MP3 Goodness page. I hope you enjoy it.
