Title: erm... for those who's interested...

well... dunno why, but i uploaded a couple of my very old bullshit works.. actually it's my first steps in digital music that i did somewhere in 1998...

these tracks made with DEMO version of "music editor" for General Sound card for ZX-Spectrum.
before listening these tracks, remember, that i cound NOT do these actions because of bugs/demofunctions:

1. do any operations with samples (edit/load/save). i had to use samples from other module, or run to my friend and make there operations on pc.
2. copy/paste stuff
3. use more than 4 channels, it's hardware limitation
4. don't remember

some technical info:

ZX-Spectrum - 8 bit computer, originaly made in 1982 and had 48 kilobytes of RAM, 16 of ROM, 6 kilobytes of video memory (256x192x2 + 768 bytes of attribute coloring), 3.5Mhz.
I've got russian clone ZS - Scorpion 256k turbo +, 7Mhz, 49 HDD, 3.5 FDD, 5.25 FDD, General Sound card

General Sound - a musical card made in 1997 by russian X-Trade group, hardware Amiga mod file player for Spectrum-compatible machines. 38Khz, 4 channels, software interpolation, 512k of internal memory (128 in base model).

anyway, before downloading make sure you know what are you doing, because it's not actually great tunes or something, it's just my first experiments with really madly bugged soft and very limitted hardware. so, i undertake no responsibility if you don't like what you downloaded.

my first(!) digital track, used "oedipi children" or something mod samples, but there are some chem's samples and stuff:

some experiments with Prodigy's poison:

some bullshit with samples from Wind It Up/Fire/Out Of Space

all tracks are sampled directly from my Speccy, i was lazy to convert that stuff to proper mods... sorry. anyway, i ruined quality a bit to 112kbps ogg, so, files are not so big.

btw, it seems winamp sux, i mean ogg plugin for winamp sux, it seems some one advisedly made there some serious bugs, sounds like dirty provocations, anyway, i found a proper player that plays all files normally, much better than winamp to me in general:

sorry for ogg propaganda, but it's really nice file format, it's just winamp plugin sux, but the format rox.

yeh, one more thing, about Ritm 2 examples, i think to make some demo track or something with using these sounds, coz i attached some overdrive and the sound really rocks, it may will be interesting, dunno yet.
