reViSiT v0.89 alpha (Pc/Free)

Tracking is a method for computer music almost as mature and time-honoured as MIDI. Sometimes better, sometimes not so - always different.
Tracking has to date been the remit of dedicated underground [freeware] software called "Trackers", particular examples of which (eg. Fast Tracker, Impulse Tracker) have almost acrued cult-status with multi-million strong user-bases. The integration of the Tracker architecture (notably its User Interface*) in sequencer software, will bring the best of both worlds to the composer.

Sequenced and "tracked" music will be feasible within a single work. Composers can rely on the MIDI support and score facility of sequencers and/or turn to reViSiT for finer control of their music and audio.

The net result of a tracker, like all music applications, is audio. However, depsite the name, trackers should be likened to a software-sampler rather than a multi-track recorder. Inside a sequencer, reViSiT users will have full run of the hosts facilities in this department.

Though "tracked" music has often been combined with video, no freely-available software exists to this end. reViSiT will be able to use any such facilities in the host sequencer.

* The reViSiT interface is based on that of Impulse Tracker II, a development of Scream Tracker III.

VSTrack is the ultimate union of sequencing and tracking. reViSiT
is a VST Instrument (VSTi) plug-in for VST-hosts (such as
sequencers) that provides a tracker interface, based on Impulse
Tracker II, to the user.
Unlike normal VSTi's which simply take MIDI input, reViSiT's
editor window is a tracker interface, which takes on the role of
the 'music sequencer' - synthesizing both music and sound.
