Back in the day i was on an apple 2gs on this internet that thing lasted me 10 years! – had a syquest 88meg cartridge harddrive and 12×12 pen tablet way back when.. music programs were clunky but in some ways it was more fun then now.. Today for me anyway i do everything live.. not line by line. _”i subscribe to the Vangelis way of working” So an odd setup. But loving the retrospective look back.. !

  • I started in the late ’70’s. After being a drummer for some years, I picked up keyboards at a local Synth shop in Scottsdale, AZ. My first that I owned was an Ensoniq EPS sampler, 61-note keyboard. It used floppy discs to load banks of samples, 8-bit mostly some were 12-bit later on. Then I worked on an album and brought in the ARP 2600, The Oberheim Matrix and a mini Moog. WOW! incredible sounds. Went directly to 2″ analog tape. I also bought the Korg M-1, Roland U-110 and later the Kurzweil all rack modules and MIDI driven from the Ensoniq. Worked on scoring industrial videos, commercial spots and later sporting events and animations. My next keyboard was the Ensoniq TS-12 with a 12-track sequencer and banks of FM sounds. Could also load from floppy discs, my old EPS samples. Today? A big MAC with SSD drives. And 10TB of sample storage. Including quite a few 8Dio libraries. 🙂

    But now I find myself getting back to analog synthesis. Using Modular synths. ZebraHZ, V3 from Arturia, etc. And creating my own sounds as I did back in the day. Still use some libraries, but I have found my scoring and sound design work has flourished since going back to basics. Got to create your own sound these days as competitive as the sound and scoring market is.

    I credit 8Dio for helping me realize the folly of addition. Beauty can always be reduced to a simple essence that you love. I stopped buying instruments that don’t make me feel something in one note.

    When you already have that essential beauty, adding stuff hides it. If you lack the beauty, cramming more notes, more tracks, more effects is fruitless. Worse is when you add so much shit, you convince yourself that it’s good.

    It’s the same with every art – music, film, food. One good ingredient is all you need. Ten bad ingredients is brown mush.

    How about some activities to help wake everyone up? “Post your favorite recording produced in awesome simplicity”. Or “Three track throwdown” – make something wonderful and complete, using only three tracks.

    I’m glad you raise this. Technology is at once a savior and a false god.

    oh Man you blew me away!! Love this video! You forgot to mention Shadow of the Beast on the Amiga 500!!!!

  • My god a trip down memory lane. Our family got a C64 in 83′. The Amiga 256 in 85′. Pro Tracker was fantastic. I still use my Korg M1 as a midi keyboard. I have a Roland MC-505 with that optical encoder as well. lovely video.
