Aueeeeeeh...about 1985. C64 of course. How ? I don't really remember.
C128: Listening to Rob Hubbards Themes and after that making music with
Chris Huelsbecks Soundmonitor
Amiga: This story I think you know
Atari ST: Cubase for sequencing with a few synthesizers/samplers
(that was around '91 - '95)
Now I have a G3 Mac, but not using it for any specific musical interests.
That I can't really explain. I'm not the type of man for coding and used to
have a classical musical education (on clarinet besides), but wasn't really
interested in music yet. But I think it was that I discovered that with music
you could influence and generate feelings very easy - especially from the time
on when I was able to compose my first own tracks.
As already mentioned (the standards on any machines): Soundmonitor; then
Aegis Sonix, Soundtracker/Protracker, later for MIDI-sequencing Cubase 3.1
or whatever on Atari; and now, since I am a professional recording engineer
in the advertising business, I'm a specialized ProTools-operator
(of course Mac).
None. As I'm some kind of perfectionist, I am not really fully satisfied
with the result of any track I ever did. Of course when it is new, you like
it very much, but if you keep listining to it or listen to it after a long
time there are so many things you would have done different. And better.
Sometimes it almost embarrasses me. An exception may be the
Boesendorfer-module, but this song is an exception for itself, because it
just simulates a piano player.
I've done much shit, too. But nothing in particular.
Nowadays, games are becoming more and more complex and movie-like. The best
movie is nothing but shit without music. That means that the music is
becoming more and more important in the same way and has to be adjusted to
the mood of the game and its situations. Just listen to the latest games
Chris Huelsbeck was involved in and you know what I mean - I think it's
Yes, more than ever but very different because I'm playing guitar in a
steady Metal/-Rock-Band for now almost 5 years and composing songs with
my bandmates (dr/git/b/voc -standard setup) We've already done a few
recording sessions over the years and recently have been in the studio
recording an 6-Track EP-CD. Our new drummer used to play in the known
german Band "Sun". You find us in the web on www.mp3.de: "Panama Speed"
still with old material, but I hope to have it updated soon.
Today MIDI is crap. Because of its serial protocol the timing is crap.
It's a child of the 80s.
Mpeg is great, because it enables you to put your music on the web or send
it via e-mail and still have an acceptable quality at special bitrates.
It's the future. Just like Firewire for connecting sound modules and
multimedia equipment of any type.
Computer ? Almost all 64-Hubbard stuff. No one ever reached the standards
he set on such a "cheap" system.
No. I don't have all my tunes anymore and then - search the web: there
already exist some. (they are illegal, by the way, because they violate
copyright laws, but nevermind)
Changes/depends. All time favs are mainly guitarbands like Suicidal
Tendencies, Pantera, Stuck Mojo, Faith no more, Testament - all that hard
stuff that influenced my own playing style. Last CDs I bought were Dream
Theater - "Scenes from a Memory", Rollins Band - "Get some go again" and
Primus "Antipop". But don't get me wrong - I still like electronical music
when it's good (like Depeche Mode - especially the newer productions).
Nevertheless I hate most of the techno/dancefloor-stuff that's hip today.
Great experiences how to make music and a lot of satisfaction through my
success. Some nice hours with friends...and alcohol.
Schone Grosse an alle, mit denen ich froher was gemacht hab !
Ficken ! Euer Eike
