Energetic-Vortex-singel-newconcept         - History -

I grew up with mostly Electro POP and Psychedelic Rock. At 12 years old I discovered synthesizer music from groups like : Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream & Pink Floyd and later on radio programs like Spleen (NL-VPRO-83)*, the foundation for the Dance Music nowadays. shamanx_live

I started making music in 1985, the first time someone put a guitar in my hands, I played live and also spontaneous became also the singer of the band with a drummer and bass guitarist. I still have the recordings. Now I was hooked on making music. We started studio “Akkabar”, a simple studio setup with Casio drumcomputers, guitars, bass guitars and lots of effects, electronic & analog band echo’s. We made some weird soundscapes as a kind of ambient. (see my projects history)

Two years later, I started making electronic music, actually at the moment when music software on the Atari and Amiga became reliable and it was possible to save and load and continue working. So in 1987 I also stared to work in the CEM (Centre Electronic Music) in Arnhem (NL), with my own projects and also followed some courses there : Trans (experimental mathematic music composer program) and programming in Pascal, a project to make my own MIDI sequencer. I also did some courses in digital & analog sound processing. I worked with analogue synthesizers like : the ARP, MOOG & KORG. As a volunteer I also helped to install cable ducts in the CEM studio to patch and rewire the whole studio, with multi cables and patch bays. I gained insights from which I still benefit today. That formed the basis for starting my own professional studio.

DeepTranceMediumfrtsm In 1991, I started my project “Deep Trance Medium”, based on my Atari computer studio setup, with a lot of hardware editors and Atari-Cubase. I had some digital synths and my first sampler : Akai S2000 and my first analogue synth : The Braintec, a double 303 clone with midi. I had a few live performances, but in these days, I didn't have the money to perform light. So every time I had to take all my studio gear with me, a large car full of stuff. After more than 10 years, the Atari became to old and slow for me (and out of spare parts), and I wanted more up-to-date synths like “virtual analogue” and real analogue synthesizers with midi. Even then I started to focus more on collecting 303 / 808 / 909 clones.

The tracks were recorded with my old Atari studio setting and they are made before the millennium, but were only released for recording in 2011. So they were on my hard drive for a while before I came across them. This was the opportunity for me to remastered them with Ozone.

So in 2005 I started to rebuild my Atari into a PC studio, I had to find new editors and software and convert all movie files and arrangements to PC format. and that took a lot of time. In 2006 I worked in the “Willemeen” (pop centre here) and starting as DJ (Psybient, Psytrance & Forest). I also worked with the lights and and organized parties, designed posters and flyers. It took so much of my time, there was no time left to build my studio.
In 2012 I restarted my studio project and now I had earned some money, that I spend very efficiently by buying all my equipment second hand or cheap. It took me 6 years to sell the old equipment and buy new ones. In 2016 I started my new Energetic Vortex project, based on my old & new ReBirth tracks. So I used Remaker to convert my Rebirth compositions into midi and worked it out in Cubase to control the midi-hardware.
studiovieuw04 In 2022 my new Audio/Visual Production Studio was finished. I have brought together analogue and digital hardware in my new studio, which can do many times more than the analogue studio of the CEM. (see my studio site)

The studio is made for producing Acid Techno :
With my new MIDEX midi interface I have a better structure to work with these complex electronics. Also my new mixer is total creazy, the Soundcraft ui24r. Very hightech equipment, with lots of possibilities, it took me a year, with the help of YouTube help video’s (see my YT playlists), to understand all functions and use them in practice. I choose for an analogue setup, with some digital sampling and effect processing. It takes much time to read all the manuals and even do some hardware repairs. (the RE-303 / TEEBEE / Supernova II Rack) Everything works now and and can finally get to work. The next step was learn how to work more efficient with my new studio and tweak it more. I also build my self a new video computer, for my Full HD music / videoproductions. ....MNX2010 Aug 2023
