Enthralled with my new possibilities, I wrote this bunch of songs. I spent much of 1994 bringing the most of the old songs on midi-format. This had two purposes - perserving each song before I would forget them and for rehearsal at home. At the same time the enthusiasm in the band had faded and we didn't rehearse much.

Though yet another revolution was waiting around the bend. Harddisk-recording. From song 4 I experimented with this technique, albeit in a very simple way. Later I got my hands on a version of Steinberg's Cubasis, which had 2 audio tracks, which was just ennough to add guitar and vocal to a song.

In 1998 I purchased new equipment. A 16 channel mixer and a Roland M-GS64 sound module, which would replace my drummachine and further more has many great instruments like a nice bass, piano and choir.
I was also able to make different mix and last minute changes of each song, which made it hard to decide when a song was finished.
