I consider some of my old tunes timeless, in such a way that would like to re-arrange them even to this day, but a lot of it sounds out of date, or perhaps 'naive' .. Smile

Ahwell, I think it's fairly normal that if you release ~ 150 tunes (RMF +Fuzzy Logic + ROM + misc Sunrise/Cain stuff + a few OPL4 tunes + the ones I forgot) in about 12 years that only a handful of them are really worth preserving. Smile All natural I guess, from the 40 aquarium fish-babies (is there a word for this plz?) from 1 couple o' parents, only a handful survives..

I'd say that 10% is worth preserving/re-arranging.. ~ that's 15 tunes.. Smile

I think that young animals etc are called "breed"
So, in this case "fish-breed"

breed... that's the one!
Anyway, OT: I think it's logical that of a whole collection of thingies, only a handful of it can be considered 'good' .

When we started as active software geeks, we did Soepfiskje for MSX Club Friesland-Noord. Totally lack of experience we had. Did have feeling for music, though the brains and the fingers were not synchronized whilst making them. Luckily señor MOA helped us out with a few tunes to cover-up my mistakes. The reviews were better than expected though, but when I listen back to it, I can't agree with them.

Jarretenk is my favorite cuz of the quantity of quite listenable noizes, but I always tend to forget Alto (OPL4) and Tweety's Choice which were quite nice to make and to check.

When I overread our 7 issues of DISK I see how I lacked the talent of the dutch grammar in those days. But I remember them with happiness. Our Near Dark history is written down so we won't forget how crazy we were.

Well, like I said in the Dutch forum,

it depends in how I feel. I know that I can detect a slight improvement when I comparise my older products with the newer ones. But still somehow, when I feel a certain way some music parts (that includes the ones I didn't wrote) will sound better if the feeling I'm having is being amplified...

When I look at my coding.. Well... Usually the old stuff is BASIC, and cannot be compared with Ml. I noticed thoug, that the more I look in time, the structured the programm is.

But then again, this is an Always Learning Process... And I still keep on improving myself (even coding for PC).
