Archeology, Pt. 1

Got Spotify, which I'm really enjoying. Lots of fun oddities to be found. Alas, one of the things I ran into last night was a little ditty that I did with the Team Metlay folks back in the day. A little digging points to this page, telling me it was Jan. 1999.

Among the tunes is "Wiard on ACID", which is in fact a prototype Wiard Synthesizer producing all the parts and played back using the ACID software. As far as I know, this is the earliest recorded instance of a Wiard, and is pretty simple (albeit altogether too short).

The system was a bunch of faceplates mounted inside a camera case, but using the same wall wart-y things that were used with production versions. The track is mostly several instance of the Waveform City into an OmniFilter, with a Sequentizer driving the thing. Or something like that...
