Description :
I subscribed quite a few magazines during the Nineties, the cover of one issue of Muzik Magazine said that the new "Speed Garage" style will become a very big thing, so I spent time to learn it and in which during the process I fell in love deeply with the Speed Garage style.....




Thanks

Description :
I was not in a good mood one day, I pressed the record button and mixed songs up with mix positions I had never used before.
My mind had to focus on the mix and this let me escaped from reality for an hour...

This was a home practise session, "mix impromptu", exploring new mix positions, often the results have good and bad surprises.

I did a minor fix in it and I think this mix is worth sharing...

I found this mix a few days ago, I listened to it and I think I have transformed my feelings and recorded in it also...
I can "hear" how my feeling changed in the mix, bad mood from "Yo Vivire" to "S.O.S. Fire In The Sky", try to cheer up during "Fashion Girl" to "High Society Girl ". However, my mood went down again start from "Rent" till "Suspense".

Live mix can reflect the DJ's feeling.

Thanks.

"Destructive editing" {record & overwrite previous work with new work}
"Linear editing"
I personally love this mix very much but due to two little careless mistakes which I could not roll back to fix under the so call "Destructive editing" mechanism, I had to stop again to think for the right tool.

"Non-destructive editing"
"Non-linear editing"
* Innovative Quality Software - Software Audio Workshop (SAW)
I wanted to try out computer sequencer software which could give me the "Non-destructive editing" and "Non-linear editing" capabilities I needed.
My friend gave me a trial copy of SAW. However, all my new hardwares seemed not ready for that :
- My new PC with 386 CPU seemed not powerful enough for the job;
- Taiwan soundcard could not handle multi-track and I was not able to mail a Turtle Beach Soundcard to Macau. (Sound Blaster Live with EMU10k chipset not existed in the market yet);
- Hard disk drive with 5,600 RPM was rare, nowhere I could find one in Macau, the shop keeper asked me to try to get SCSI hard disk drives from Hong Kong which had a ridicules price tag.
So I had to wait again...

1999
With the advancement in technology and price were going down with hardwares, I finally could try out computer editor / sequencer softwares.
* Sonic Foundary - Acid Pro 2.0 + Cool Edit Pro

I tried to test Acid Pro 2.0 with something I already had in mind, see how fast I can pick up the new software and remake something I'd done before but with a new tool.
