Pretty old interview, yet another one who mentions using a Tracker as his main tool; before switching to the Dark Side. #sarcasm
I used Impulse Tracker to produce music for almost 12 years before I switched to Ableton Live. [Impulse Tracker] is a sample-based sequencer originally based in DOS and later emulated for Windows and Mac. There is no MIDI or VST instruments in Impulse Tracker so you’re forced to rely only on samples. This method of sampling and searching through long recordings to find the perfect sound has stuck with me to this day, so it’s kind of second nature for me in a way.
