Maral is the last real evolutionary step I did until recording Evolutions itself: Moving from computer-based interfaces to a real sequencer and keyboard. It’s from the same tape as the uncut recording of Evolution, done in 1993. At this point I was allready using the Wavestation and the DR660 drumcomputer.
... and the next step: Just before I started using real sequencer-software for the first time, enabling me to do real-time recordings, I bought my first Keyboard, the Yamaha PSS790 and a great FX processor: The Boss SE50.
Still using Sonix, this tune marks the next step: My very first own synthesizer, in this case the Roland MT32. Multitimbral, multichannels, an own delay-processor... I still love to use this little black box, it has a very warm sound.
Vengol 1, recorded in 1991 on a friend’s Yamaha DX-7 synthesizer, was my very first tune done with midi. Before that I only had programmed my tunes on different tracker programs either on the Amiga or the C64. This one wasn’t recorded with a sequencer though, I planted notes with the mouse in Sonix, using it’s extremely limited midi functions.
