Hi folks !
You’ve got this email because of being in touch with IT3 (Impulse Tracker) or
Pulse terms in the past. These projects 're still alive but web sites
moved from DSPaudio (Tony Allen) under Orcave’s wings. If you want to be
informed in the future about the status and/or to become a member of
Orcave’s betatesters team, you should visit
Starting in 2000, I was excited about “Impulse Tracker 3” coming out. It would be a continuation of the ScreamTracker line. But it never happened.
I saw screenshots, heard rumors…etc
Here we are 5 years later!
During those 5 years, Fast Tracker 3 (turned into Skale). Madtracker 2 stayed strong. Noisetrekker-3-beta came out (and turned into Renoise). Many former trackers went to Fruity Loops and Reason.
Impulse Tracker 3 and “Flaw” never came out.
If you want an Impulse Tracker clone, download Schizm tracker, (or zTracker for midi).
Anyways, the reality is Renoise is the fukken best. Mt2.5 and Skale are holding it down pretty well too. Mt3 will be out eventually. Renoise has some amazing upgrades planned.
I don’t ‘dream’ of IT3 anymore. I think the Impulse Tracker 3 development team might have the ability to plan out a good tracker in 2000, but to create it is different. I can’t wait to download it and play with it (in 2006?). But it’ll take a damn good tracker to make me like it more than Renoise.
i held out for it3 until about 2002, when i started messing with renoise. whenever i read letters from the it3 devs they talk about how they’ve built up and torn down the codebase for it like twice. what i’m wondering is what part of it3 is going to be “impulse tracker”? the interface? keyboard shortcuts? or if they ever release a tracker is it just going to use the name to market itself better?
it3 better one beast of a tracker when it comes out. if they get to benefit from groups like the renoise, skale and mt devs working to keep tracking alive in the modern music scene they had better deliver a product that actually lives up to it’s name and not just try to jump in after all the groundwork is laid to sell something that makes old school trackers nostalgic.
