msx changing lives I don't get it...
ofcourse for me it IS ' jeugdsentiment' but it didn't change my life or so ,

Anyway maybe because I am a girl I think different Evil

I work for a company (Engine Software) that used to be an amature MSX developer (MSX-Engine) where I do stuff I learned on an MSX (making annoying game-tunes and pixeling graphics)

Besides that most of my current friends had an 'MSX-past', so I probably wouldn't know them today if I didn't own an MSX back then. Smile

So, in my case it influenced in my professional as well as my personal life... I'd say that MSX had a major role in that one Smile

What MSX is responsible for:

* Turning me into a geek (unless it was genetic, but I doubt it).
* Meeting great geeky friends and not wanting to beat them up. Naah, sometime I did want to indeed Smile
* Loosing 2/10 of vision on both eyes playing MSX games late at night.
* Spending countless hours surfing MSX sites when I should be searching for porn like any decent internet user.
* Spending countless hours Programming a computer that is less powerfull than my phone.
* Reducing chances of scoring with women (nothing a shiny sport car won't fix tho *L*)

Bwah, still worth it...

hmm.. kinda radical.. I had pianolessons at 7, never really did something with composing... except doing the 'theatre music' for a stupid puppets-play, on an old out-of-tune piano, at school, when I was 12 orso.. parts of that music were based on the space music of Topple Zip btw. (world 5). That was cool as the situation that a simple kid was arranging music for a play was kinda unknown then at that school, the next year I was asked to arrange and perform the monday-morning songs on that same shitpiano.. at least it saved ME from singing Smile

At 14, I got an Fm-Pac, and that's when the structural composing started.. first in mml, then in fst, then in protracker, then in MB, (followed by mbwave), and now on PC in ST3/IT2 for about 8, 9 yrs by now.

I'm very sure that joining the msx demoscene triggered that drive to get serious about composition. Today I finished the music of a short movie "The Horseless Prince", visit the Utrecht filmfestival, if you wanna see it. Would I be doing music today if I didn't have an msx? What was more important..? Owning the msx or joining the scene? I don't know.
However, if I could go back in time, and do it all again, I wouldn't use an alternative computer.. no amiga, no atari, no c64, zippo. Learning FM proved to be of great value, and learning the tracker-system is still the base of my current composition-method.

I agree... while creating tracker-based music is much more versatile than being limited to FM instruments only, it's probably easier to learn the basic principles about how bass, chords and melody are connected with an FM-PAC... though the difference is probably not THAT big Smile

I mean, the note 'C4' in a tracker is not necessarily a real 'C4' or 440Hz tune, it's all depends on how that instrument was sampled... And then you had the difference between logaritmic scale and normal scale with samples... ahh well, when I started sampling my own instruments for tracker usage I just made sure they're all sampled at a C base key Smile ... it's annoying to have to use key offsets ^_^
