Maintenance mode

This is my superlame take on my otherwise beloved techhouse genre. I've never been very good with uptempo stuff.

Completed after thirdteen (13!) years in my harddrive, all using Reason 4.0. It doesn't run under any modern version of the original Windows/Mac OSes so I run a pirated copy under Linux Wine. A few bugs and lots of pain trying to get used to the interface again.

I'm aware it's overcompressed as hell, and maybe it would had been better to start from scratch, but I didn't want to go to the sometimes superboring process of bouncing everything to audio tracks and mix it on another DAW.

116 beats per minute, not exactly house. At least, the kick drum seems punchy enough.

Late upload courtesy to the infinite kindness of Aday and the rest of the WB crew. Thank you very very much, guys!

Good time-tripping. Always a problem salvaging older work — I still have MIDI files on floppies.

Oh yes indeed, Jim. I've managed to organize all my projects back from my Commodore Amiga days back on '96. It's been years and I'm still checking stuff every week and dumping audio tracks, converting formats etcetera.

A lot of times it pays off but sometimes I feel I waste more time fighting with the incompatibilities of old technology than making actual music! (SCSI drives, anyone?)

Thanks for your constant feedback, as always  smile
