Apollo Brown Makes All His Beats with 20-Year-Old Software

Brown, who started making beats on Windows 95 with the Voyetra software, later upgraded to Cool Edit Pro in 1996. Though Cool Edit was antiquated and obsolete in 2010, this was still Brown’s main mode of production when he signed to Mello Music Group,

and it remains his primary weapon of choice today.

Perhaps, but the article is from 2016. I suspect he’s learned/heard whether it will work for him on Windows.more_recent_version by now.

Seems he still is using the xp -combo until this day;https://djbooth.net/features/2017-09-05-apollo-brown-interview

Brown, who still uses a desktop PC that runs on Windows XP because it’s the only thing that’s compatible with Cool Edit 2000, is a loyal subscriber to the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” school of philosophy—both with his approach to production and his setup.

So nice to see these nostalgic programs .

Does anyone remember when cool edit was still developed by ‘sytrillium software’ .

Here’s a nice find , click on the about button , and drag the centre of the flower outwards .to the right …

.In cool edit 2 you could move the marbles , from the cool edit word ( the two OO’s ) and make them fall …

Try it , here’s a link to that what I mean ( just a picture )

Not working for me : (

My “About” box says “Cool Edit 2000”, with no other version info.

I’ve been careful not to lose my installer key file and license email.

I see now that I bought CE2K from Syntrilliumin 2000.

Didnt they use #xp for the first Moonlandings; or the last ones…those called #Apollo :slight_smile:

Apparently, or from what has been said, Sony Acid software was not given up on by some, who use it to this day.

Furthermore, it may have some kind of sample morphing capabilities which have not yet been replicated inside the other music production software packages.

Additionally, a new version may drop soonish and certainly a thrifty choice if I may say so.

Lets keep the music softwares at under $100…Its not the easy thing to do, but it is the right thing for the prosperity and splendour.

Sony Acid Music studio may actually be quite cool in terms of its funtionality but as far as I know it throws people off with its ugly looks and bare white theme.

On the subject of Sony, Why dont they give us a 160GB sony mp3 player for cheap which is better than i-devices because the bullshit of itunes is skipped over as it should be. Sony 4eva.
