One of my main hobbies is computer programming. In particular, music software development. I have coded in a variety of different languages, including BASIC (with a little VB), Pascal/Delphi, Euphoria and C/C++.
To date, my most notable achievement has been in the form of Midget, a small MIDI music tracker application. This has been enhanced and the design revised many times, and the end result is an interesting little program which you can use to compose music. Incidentally, a lot of my older tracks were composed entirely using Midget.
My recent projects have been more ambitious. Because of this, there is nothing to show for them at this time. I have been refining my own coding skills and learning about good design and coding practises, to ensure the quality of my software is as good as it can be.
The end of Midget (and other software)Sunday, October 9, 2011
For many years, this website has been home to the music program known as "Midget".
The first version was written in 1999, mainly because I enjoyed writing music using tracker-style programs, but wanted to work more with MIDI. Since then, it has been re-written from scratch a couple of times, being converted from a DOS program into a Windows application in the process.
Development eventually ceased, due to the loss of source code, and the program generally no longer fits my needs.
I've also previously been working on other software projects, including sound support within ReactOS. I'm no longer working on these and so have decided to devote the entire website to my music instead.
The Software section of the site will soon be closed down, and the Midget music program will no longer be available from this website. Any future software projects will most likely be given their own dedicated website.
Thanks to everyone who has used Midget and been in touch with me regarding the program in the past!
