" D e s e r t G r a i n "
[OSS, 8 channels, 5:39 mins]
Howdy, folks. After numerous attempts in fixing my sound hardware
problems (maybe you remember older module .readme's), I've finally
found the source of the problems. Seems as if my motherboard has a
slight knack, and I'm glad that it could be worked around by removing
the metal plate armoring the gameports of the A4000... hell, a friend
of mine who's pretty good at soldering spent a lot of time with
replacing the cinch audio ports and the gameports, and in the end it
is such a damn fault within the motherboard.
But on with info about this song! :) This is some sorta groovy funky
funny jazzy piece of synthetical dubstuff... or whatever! I really
don't know what I should call it, erm! I started with the goal to make
some ethnically touched dubstuff, but as I added the groove to it, the
whole thing went into a completely different direction - but I really
like it! Its relaxed, its smooth, and it was great fun making it.
I was tempted to replace the "synth" sounding instruments with more
natural samples, but in the end I was both too lazy for it and too
confident with the result with the synth instruments - this song still
has that "computer music" feeling that I apreciate so much, yet its
completely different from all the goa/trance stuff I've done so far in
OSS. Hey, I'm really proud of this one! :)
A big warm "thanks" to Bjorn 'Dr. Awesome' Lynne whose synth
instrument I borrowed :) from the unused Alien Breed song that was
spread because it didn't fit onto the disks (in fact I tried to
replace it with a sample, but it fitted in so well that I just left it
Enjoy playing this one... a moderately high volume level and a decent
turn to the "+" side of the bass knob's scale on your amp is

I'm maintaining the "Aurora Borealis AHX collection" which started out
of my very own AHX collection, and I'm looking for AHX modules (well,
what else). If you have made any AHX modules yourself, why not contact
me? I'm gathering "annotation" files from various AHX song authors at
the moment, if I haven't been able to contact *you* out there yet,
please drop me a short mail, I'd be glad to hear from you!
C o n t a c t
In case you want to contact me, please write to:
[please no modules/samples swapping, chatting preferred :)]
I do also run a BBS, but due to capital lazyness + capital lameness
of many new users, its no longer open to the public, its for really
interested callers & friends only. If you're interested in a good module
area + many other goodies AND can cope with BBS software OTHER than
AmiExpress-clones, just drop me a mail.
You can find most of my modules (back to 1987) on Aminet,
Fate did all of the collecting/uploading/converting to LhA for
the Aminet directory; dude, I really owe you one! :)
