Computer software as (programmed) instrument?

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f98cdc53a60>


I would like to make some artist‐recording (sound)tracker relationships.

(Sound)trackers are like sampler+sequencer software that you program then it plays your music, like Mario Paint (if you like it, you can use the fun mariopants on PC) or like orgue de barbarie.

Wikipedia calls them Music Trackers or just Trackers but in my small world we called it a soundtracker but we would also occasionally use the word tracker in conversations (faster word).

I have used some of them in the past, they all had cool names like ProTracker and Audio Sculpture on Atari ST, then on PC, MultiTracker Module Editor (MMEDIT), Scream Tracker 3 and eventually Impulse Tracker 2.

Shall we create a new instrument called Software?
With a sub instrument called Tracker?
Then I would use credited as to mention the actual software name.
☞ ARTIST programmed TRACKER (credited as IMPULSE TRACKER 2) in 1997 on RECORDING.


In the meantime, I have used the Electronic instrument, credited as software name.
