AudioMelody was the first site that I developed, starting off as Musicware way back in 1999. In the early stages AudioMelody was a simple site that just offered reviews and downloads of the growing number of freeware, shareware, and open source music software made available on the internet. Over the years the site got recognition in industry magazines such as Computer Music and Sound on Sound, and was even mentioned in a few books – all of which added to the site’s popularity peaking with about 150,000 pageviews per month.
As the site grew and we added new sections such as longer form articles and then full blown multi-chaptered tutorials from some of the best sound engineers in the business the site was constantly being redeveloped using the latest technologies. No matter of the success, we know where the heart of the site lies and that is in helping people find free tools to create music, and we have built a community around making music at the Melodic Forums.
The current site was developed in-house using WordPress / PHP / MySQL / HTML / CSS
