Delta SP 1.62 (last freeware version)
OS: Windows 95/98/Me/NT4/2000/XP
Delta SP is like a bunch of normal music software programs, except it's all been crammed into one, so it's much bigger, but more flexible and easier to use once you've learned the basics. Delta SP has a sequencer, which plays MIDI messages to it's internal synthesizer or to external MIDI devices, and also Audio clips to Audio channels in the synth.
You can use Delta SP to compose music, jingles, radio programs or film effects. When your project is ready you can use the Export Audio function to save your project as a high definition WAV, MP3 or OGG file.
The Delta SP synthesizer is stereo, including effects. It uses 32 bit audio. It loads internal plugins and VST plugins. It has a big integrated sampler similar to soundfont technology which works together with the synth. Delta SP works great on Windows 95 thru Windows XP.
Delta SP should take you a few hours to get familiar with if you are reasonably proficient with working a computer. It might take you sometime to learn all the parts if you are not familiar with music software in general. If you have used music software before, you will recognize a lot of standard tools and panels in Delta SP.

RAMBoss 1.3.0 (last freeware version)
OS: Windows 95/98/NT/ME/2K/XP
RAMBoss is a small, yet effective utility for freeing up system RAM on Windows 95/98 systems. Also should work on other systems such as Win 2000 or XP, but you'll get most out of it on 95/98.
Why use RAMBoss?
The way that Windows treats memory (at least in 95/98 systems) is not very good, and sooner or later the system will most probably crash. You can use RAMBoss to keep your system up and running for lot's of longer times than without.
RAMBoss is not fullfilled with any extra-features like graphics showing CPU-usage / RAM-usage, it just does what it has to do. Compared to RamBooster, which has very low CPU-usage, RAMBoss has 50% lower usage, and _a lot_ lower system resources usage!
RAMBoss was written totally in Win32 Assembly, making it possible to create small, fast, and very useful application for the whole Windows product family.
