I'm interested in getting into making some music on DOS or Win31 or Win9x computers.
I think what I'm looking for is something that lets me do sample-based music production, with the ability to use MIDI and even maybe USB keyboards, record and use samples (software synth is cool too but not necessary), play the song in real time in CD quality (assuming the PC is powerful enough), hear existing tracks while recording (assuming the sound card can do full duplex), and record vocals on top of it.
Most of today's music production software has user interfaces that I find very confusing, and have way too many features that I don't need and can't be bothered to mess with. I want simple, as in "here are the tracks, you can tell one from the next, each is associated with an instrument that you defined with a sample or synth using a button ON the track (dammit), and up top are your play/record/stop buttons."
(sorry, venting a little about UI design. I can't stand non-intuitive things)
Does anyone have any favorites they'd like to share?
I flermmed the plootash just like you asked.
