"The 90s are alive!"; with a free, modern clone of "FastTracker II"  # It ran natively in MS-DOS, then died by the end of the 90s. But now it’s back: one of the greatest chip music trackers of all time has been cloned to run on modern machines.  # FastTracker II will now run on Windows and Mac (and should run on Linux).

I will remember Carquinez…
