Born in 1979, had an Atari ST when I was a kid and started making music with Quartet, then Protracker. I didn't understand how chiptrackers worked (didn't speak English by then) although I could play a bit with SidSound Designer, I didn't get it enough to make proper tracks. Then I got into metal & rock and bought guitars, then I got a PC and started playing with various software but mostly Reason. Then LSDJ and MaxYMiser were released and I had enough musical knowledge and understanding of English to use them and make proper sample-free chiptune :D
