The music down these links was made mostly from 2002 to 2004 on a desktop PC running Cakewalk Home Studio 2002 (around $80 from amazon.com). Everything including the percussion parts was written out on staff then tweaked for placement and velocity to get it off the grid. Except for the occasional snippet of a wav file (and a few later things made on a better computer w/ higher-grade triggered samples), all the sounds are General Midi from whatever sound chip was on the card, a Yamaha something possibly, or were cooked up on the included virtual synthesizer. Nothing was "performed."
