History of software-sequencing

We from the Computer Museum Oldenburg did a livestream about Rebirth338 the other day.

Maybe some of you like that.


Mostly German speaking people :slight_smile:

If you click ‘CC’ then the ‘Settings’ wheel, you can select a language and it translates the speach to text.
Pretty cool…

I remember sequencing audio in 1980 using GWBasic and GOTO commands : D
Also remember shortly thereafter wishing i had an amiga like my friend did.


absolutely true. But on the other hand, all of us (or most of us) have already seen rebirth / rewire and I thought it’s nice to see this old software live again :wink:

I have been using ReBirth quite a lot back in the days.
Great feeling that was - listening to your own acid tunes on tape in the mall’s parking lot :slight_smile:
Still like to do acidy stuff once in a while.

When you’re creating acid, are you using Phoscyon? It’s supposedly the best 303 emulation. I’m thinking about getting it, even though I’m not that acid guy anymore. But I still love Gamma Loop or Solar Quest.

Not my way of creating music, but besides of that I like it.
Schön sowas auch mal auf die Art und Weise präsentiert zu bekommen. :slightly_smiling_face:

Jup, you can watch this even in arabic if you want to. Turn on the subtitles, click on the settings wheel, click on subtitle, select automatic translation, select language and there you go.

Rebirth was absolutly MIND BLOWING at the time. One of those seriously,huge moments for music software. Wish I still had some of the patterns I made in it!

Dave Spiers talked about how important it was when I interviewed him and Rebirth was one of the reasons his PhatBoy MIDI controller became so popular

Yes, Phoscyon sounds really authentic. I tested it and am also thinking about to finally buy it. But i am having good results using a more experimental approach with synths like Surge aswell.
