i can't imagine doing all that live, but then the overall feel doesn't sound as programmed as some stuff today.
my buddy had an ADAT, a 32-8 Mackie and a 2 channel DAT. he used the internal sequencers, an Atari running Cubase, and would record the beats, then go back and record the synth parts using the 8 subs. he was doing house, so then he'd add in the vocals if they were live - otherwise it was all about the samplers. he'd do the mix down to DAT and call it a day.

using that system, JP made about 10 huge records. Giv Me Luv was one of them.

classic -did you use the ASR-10's sequencer or just the Atari? is that a black MMT-8? how did you sync the 808?

I actually used 2 MMT-8s for live/jamming, I used the atari with Master Tracks Pro for "final sequencing." I use a kenton sync box for the 808 and 202. thumbsup

nice. a typical setup for the budget bedroom producer. i used a PC with PowerTracksPro - i lougged that damn thing around when i played live! when i got an MMT-8, it was freaking awesome to not have to carry the computer.

I remember 93, running all of my stuff off of an Atari to a weird 6 channel Yamaha mixer I had (part of some weirder Yamaha 4 track system). It had 2 Aux sends, which I routed my Zoom 9001 to 1 of. I was sequencing a Roland JX8P, JX3P Juno2, Pro 1, Akai S612, 909, and a Roland D10. Live mix down to Casette tape usually, although once a month I would rent a DAT machine from the local music store to get everything down digitally.

Those were definitely the days. Was really influenced by Jam and Spoon, and anything off the Dr Trance radio show (anyone from Ontario Canada will know who Im talking about).

Here was my first 12 inch record I did with that set up. Called "Hypnotic Trance"

I sampled a hypnotist record talking about a "Fleeting Hypnotic Trance"

I couldn't afford for a pair of sneakers in 1993.

Wanted a synth but could only dream of it. Life really really sucked for me back then. So i'd watch keyboard magazine covers and listen to some nice techno tracks instead. When friend bought JV-90, and i heard that thing first time, i couldn't believe how good THAT sounded back then. Just by listening to the presets for few minutes i came out with 5-6 different track ideas. If only i had something like JV-90 and ASR-10 back then...

A year or two later than 1993... but I was listening to this when I noticed this thread:
YouTube - Solar Quest - Acid Air Raid (George's All Nighter)

Pretty much THE song that got me buying electronic instruments...

I still play and the energy of the times comes flooding back.

So yes.. 1993 was my first year out of small town high school.. straight into the LA/SF techno scene... Then mid 90's europe: AWESOME!!!

I'm inclined to agree with this. While production quality has gone up noticeably, it seems that the quality of the songs themselves isn't quite what it used to be.

But, what do I know? I was listening to Soundgarden and Nirvana in '93. (Small town in the middle of nowhere. Nobody had heard very much electronic music until some metal station started playing trance tracks after midnight around '98.)

One of my all time favourites. From '91 I think. I got into techno a few years later than that but quickly collected a back catalog.

a buddy of mine in 97-98 would make fun of me for having the largest collection of records by guys he never heard of - and he was a minimal techno / tech house guy.

i bet i could put together a solid 2 hour set with records very few people would know from 93-97 that would own a dance floor. i check to see if the stuff has made it to youtube every so often, so far, very few have made it.

i'm waiting for the flip side of the record to show up... what a massive track
