  • Hoontech Soundtrack 97 PCI
  • Gravis UltraSound, PnP, Max
  • Pro Audio Spectrum
  • Pro Audio Spectrum 16
  • Interwave
  • PC Speaker
  • DAC on LPT

It’s all in assembly and can be built with Turbo Assembler 4.1

About neozeed

What is there to tell? I've loved UNIX like things since I was first exposed to QNX in highschool (we had the Unisys ICONS!), and spent the better time of my teenage years trying to get my own UNIX... I should have bought Coherent in retrospect.. Anyways latched onto Linux in 1992, and then got some old BSD admin books and have been hooked on the VAX BSD & other big/ancient things since...!

  1. I used this. Excellent 0th generation tracker, created tons of songs with it. On CPUs with MMX, lowpass and highpass filtering was a killer feature compared to other trackers e.g. scream tracker, fast tracker, digitracker…!
