        <h2>Switching it Up</h2>
        <p>
          Unlike <a href="track1.html">last week</a>,
          for the second capstone journal entry, I did not use Sonic
          Pi, but instead I spent some time trying out
          <a href="http://schismtracker.org/">Schism Tracker</a>.
          According to its website, Schism Tracker is “is a free and
          open-source reimplementation of Impulse Tracker, a program
          used to create high quality music without the requirements
          of specialized, expensive equipment, and with a unique
          ‘finger feel’ that is difficult to replicate in part.”
        </p>
        <p>
          <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_tracker">Trackers</a>
          are primarily used in making
          <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chiptune">Chiptune</a>
          music, but I didn't seek it out solely for that purpose.
          Unlike programming music with Sonic Pi, in Schism, patterns of samples
          arranged into channels, which are combined to create a whole song.
          I found some
          <a href="http://tracker.modarchive.org/">samples on the web</a>
          to make my song out of.
        </p>
        <p>
          Just a note about the interface:
          Schism uses the keyboard exclusively, there is no mousing around here!
          (<a href="https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/refcards/pdf/refcard.pdf">Just the way I like it.</a>)
