Hey mate!

I love the music you find on 'keygens'. This type of music originated from the Amiga and the Atari ST. Both machines were excellent at producing music. At the time there was a huge debate as who is the best, IMHO it would be the Amiga! Piror to the boom in the PC marked the cracked Amiga and Atari games were patched by certain 'groups', one well known was Fairlight.

Anyhow music was produced using software on either machine called a 'tracker'. A popular program for the Amiga was Octomed, a quick search on google will will bring up various results! On the Amiga this kind of music was know as a 'mod'. A *.mod file contains a set of instruments in the form of samples, a number of patterns indicating how and when the samples are to be played, and a list of what patterns to play in what order. There were other varients such *.xt, sm3,

Have a look at some of the links below!

1. Google results for amiga music
2. Well worth looking at is an article on Wikipedia. Wikipedia 64k Intro/demos Particually in the early days mod music was used in these demos as it allowed for a small file size.

Hope this helps mate!!
