Preservation

Software

Title Description

Cakewalk Pro Audio 9
My portable Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 setup from my childhood, a fantastic MIDI sequencer from 1999, along with additional useful files (my .wrks, demo files from the original installation, .CALs, .syx, .ins, my custom hotkeys). .zip is subject to be updated overtime.

Domino v1.43 English
Very powerful freeware MIDI sequencer from 2013. Also includes an LFO tool, custom curves and a visualiser akin to TMIDI. Popular in the Japanese MIDI scene, but not as widespread in the West due to the sheer difficulty of locating an English translation (or willing volunteers and reverse-engineers) in the first place. Documentation in English is currently scattered for the time being. Original Japanese/English pages.
