I was tracking music back in college when I was TAing the MIDI class. I opened my PC case and wired up the PC speaker to a cassette adapter to speakers and ran a software sound card output so I could work on my soundcard-less PC back in my dorm room.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
