WELL IT HAS BEEN A HELL OF A LONG TIME SINCE WE RELEASED A DEMO     THE LAST ONE WE DID WAS IN FACT OUR NOW FAMOUS    RED DWARF DEMO    WHICH YOU MAY HAVE SEEN REVIEWED IN A COUPLE OF AMIGA MAGAZINES    THE LATEST BEING THE    JUNE 1992 CU AMIGA MAGAZINE     IN WHICH IT GOT 88 PERCENT   -   PREVIOUSLY IT HAD BEEN GIVEN 81 PERCENT IN ISSUE 1 OF   PUBLIC DOMAIN AND SHAREWARE MAGAZINE.     I WAS VERY LAZY OVER LAST SUMMER AND WE PLANNED TO RELEASE A DEMO AT THE  E.C.E.S.  IN LONDON IN SEPTEMBER     I WAS WELL INTO A NEW PROGRAM AND THEN THEY ANNOUNCED THAT THEY HAD MADE IT A TRADE ONLY SHOW.     WAS I ANNOYED OR WHAT     IT PUT ME OFF CODING A LITTLE BIT BUT I WAS STILL TINKERING AROUND.     WE WENT TO THE   -WORLD OF COMMODORE SHOW-   BUT DIDN'T RELEASE ANYTHING I AM SAD TO SAY - NEVER MIND.     WE STARTED WORK ON DECIBEL OVERLOAD AT THE END OF 1991 AND I DID QUITE A BIT OF WORK IN THE FIRST FOUR OR FIVE WEEKS.     BUT THEN I HAD TO DO A COMPUTER STUDIES PROJECT FOR MY A-LEVEL AT COLLEGE   (USING AMOS I AM AFRAID TO SAY - I DO NOT USUALLY TOUCH IT)     THAT TOOK A WHOLE LOAD OF TIME UP.    THEN CAME MY A-LEVELS AND I HAD EVEN LESS TIME THAN BEFORE     SO  DBO  GOT SET BACK QUITE A BIT.     ALSO I PUT A SATELLITE TV SYSTEM IN MY HOUSE   THIS TOOK UP ALOT OF MY TIME TOO,   AND STILL DOES TO SOME DEGREE.     I HAVE A PACE MULTI SATELLITE SYSTEM AND GET  90+  CHANNELS!!!     I SEE LOADS OF UPLINKS FOR NEWS BROADCASTS AND OUTSIDE BROADCASTS.     ALSO THERE ARE LOADS OF TESTCARDS AND CAPTIONS GOING UP ON VARIOUS SATELLITES FOR THE OLYMPIC GAMES.   I AM HOPING TO SEE SOME WIDESCREEN BROADCASTS TOO ON MY D2-MAC SETUP.    (I HAVE DONE SINCE I WROTE THIS!)     ANY SAT BUFFS WANTING TO CONTACT ME,   PLEASE DO IT THROUGH  -TRACKER-  AT THE ADDRESS IN THE CONTACT SCROLLER   (F7 OR KEYPAD 7)   HAPPY SAT HUNTING SKY WATCHERS!!        MY LAZINESS IS NOW IN THE PAST,   AND THIS IS HOPEFULLY THE FIRST OF QUITE A FEW RELEASES THIS SUMMER.     OUR NEXT PRODUCTION WILL BE A MUSIC DISK FOR ALL YOU HARDCORE AND RAVE MUSIC FREAKS OUT THERE.     A NAME HAS NOT BEEN DECIDED FOR IT YET,   BUT I HAVE ALL THE MUSIC READY FOR IT ON MY HARD DRIVE.    WE ARE STILL DECIDING ON THE GRAPHICS THAT NEED TO BE DONE AND THE OVERALL DESIGN,   BUT IT SHOULD BE WITH YOU FAIRLY QUICKLY    BECAUSE I HAVE MOST OF THE CODE ALREADY PREPARED.     IF YOU WANT A TASTE OF THINGS TO COME   LOAD UP THE LAST TRACK - FORCE.          ALSO,   CUE-X DEVELOPMENTS   HAVE HAD QUITE A FEW ADDITIONS TO OUR TEAM SINCE LAST MAY 1991         OPTIC DREAM AND MIKEY J.   -   2 GRAPHIC ARTISTS,  BROTHERS IN FACT - OPTIC DID ALL THE WORK FOR THIS DEMO     FIL   -   A MUSICIAN WHO DID A COUPLE OF THE PIECES ON THIS DISK     ARAN   -   ANOTHER MUSICIAN WHO DID THE RAVE TRACK AND THE MUSIC FOR OUR NEXT PRODUCTION     THOSE ARE WHO I CONSIDER THE -OFFICIAL- JOININGS    THERE ARE A FEW OTHER ASSOCIATES WHO DESERVE A MENTION...   MY COUSIN - RICHARD TAYLOR,  OF  LONG EATON SOFTWARE CENTRE,   LONG EATON,   NOTTINGHAM.   (QUICK ADVERT THERE!)   AND ALL THE GANG THERE,     STUART TOMPKINS,    MARK CONNORS.      A FINAL WORD TO ALL PRODUCING DEMOS FOR THE AMIGA    PLEASE MAKE THEM COMPATIBLE WITH ALL MACHINES!     ALOT OF THE LATEST DEMOS WE SEE ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH   KICKSTART 2.0   AND SOME DO NOT EVEN RUN ON 1.3 BASED SYSTEMS SUCH AS    CDTV    IT'S REALLY ANNOYING THAT I CAN'T CODE AND RUN YOUR DEMOS AT THE SAME TIME!!!!      PLEASE TRY TO DO SOMETHING,   ESPECIALLY WITH THE NEW HIGH TECH,  HIGH SPEC  AMIGAS COMING ONTO THE MARKET!!!       ALSO HAVE A GO AT MUCKING ABOUT WITH THE LOADER.     ON A  KICK 2.0 SYSTEM  YOU -SHOULD- BE ABLE TO BOOT FROM ANY DRIVE.     TRY REMOVING THE DISK NOW AND LOADING,    REPLACE WITH A DIFFERENT DISK AND TRY AGAIN!    GOOD ERROR CHECKING   EH!!       IF YOU DO MANAGE TO CRASH IT,  LET ME KNOW!       THAT'S ALL FROM ME FOR THE MOMENT - NOW IT IS THE REST OF THE MEMBERS TURN TO EXPRESS THEIR OPINIONS -   A WORD FROM OUR GRAPHICS ARTIST    - OPTIC DREAM TYPING.     I HOPE YOU LIKE THIS FONT BECAUSE I HAD TO CONSTRUCT MY OWN TEMPLATE FROM SCRATCH.   ANYWAY THE ALL NEW GRAPHIC ARTIST FOR CUE-X DEVELOPMENTS   BRINGING YOU PASTEL DELIGHTS FROM MY PUMP ACTION PALETTE.     I SPECIALISE IN FINE ART PRODUCTION   SO WATCH OUT FOR THE INTRO IN THE NEXT DEMO.    I THINK I WILL TELL A STORY.     LET ME TELL YOU WHAT HAPPENED AT MY 20TH BIRTHDAY PARTY....    ABOUT 7.00 PM,   5 PEOPLE TURNED UP WITH ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES  (AT THIS POINT MY AMPLIFIER WAS ON A QUARTER VOLUME, QUITE LOUD!),   8.00 PM  -  MOST OF CUE-X DEVELOPMENTS WERE FLOATING IN PUNCH    AND THE SMELL OF MY DAD'S BARBECUE WAS POLLUTING THE NEIGHBOURHOOD  (MY AMPLIFIER WAS NOW ON HALF VOLUME, LOUD!),   10.00PM  -  MOST OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD HAD ARRIVED AT MY HOUSE,   ALONG WITH 2 CARDBOARD MODELS OF A PERSON UNKNOWN TO MOST OF US.     FOOD AND DRINK WERE BEING CONSUMED AT A RATE OF ABOUT 5 GALLONS AN HOUR    OR 2 BURGERS A MINUTE   (AT THIS POINT MOST OF THE SURROUNDING TOWN COULD HEAR ROCK MUSIC BLARING OVER THE SOUND OF THEIR PUNY T.V. SETS    HA HA HA..,  F...ING LOUD!)    1.00 AM  -  QUITE DRUNK    AND REGAINING THE ART OF WALKING I PICKED MYSELF UP AND TRIED TO TAKE CONTROL OF MY AMPLIFIER WHICH HAD VERY LITTLE EFFECT.    I GOT BRIBED TO PUT SOME RAVE MUSIC ON BY A GANG OF YOUTHS WHO WERE APPARENTLY MY COLLEGE MATES OF '89,  PROBABLY JUST A FEEBLE EXCUSE TO CHAT MY MOTHER UP  (NOW,  TO MY SURPRISE THE AMPLIFIER WAS ON THREE QUARTER VOLUME - AT WHICH TIME THE SPEAKERS CLAPPED OUT AND THE TWEETERS DIED!).   WHICH BRINGS ME TO THE QUESTION WHICH W.NKER KEPT TURNING MY AMPLIFIER UP ...   WELL ENOUGH OF THE STORYTELLING AND BACK TO THE DEMO...    YOU KNOW I'M SO GLAD THAT THIS DEMO HAS FINALLY BEEN RELEASED   BECAUSE IT'S OUR FIRST MUSIC DISK FOR A LONG TIME AND I WANTED IT TO BE OUT FOR THE SUMMER.   I HAVE JUST FINISHED MY EXAMS AND I AM WAITING FOR MY FINAL PRESENTATION OF DIPLOMAS.   HELLOS GO OUT TO MOM, DAD, GRANDMA, GRANDAD, AND ALL MY OTHER RELATIVES. ALSO BIG HI'S GO OUT TRACEY MY COLLEAGUE, JUSTIN   (YOU BELL),  HI TO PAUL SHAHID,  MAT CHERITON,  RICHARD O'BRIEN,  SHARON STONE,   AND ON A MORE SERIOUS NOTE - FACET, DAN, ZERO DEFECTS, LSD, CRIONICS, ANARCHY, UNO, SANITY, N.W.A., NED (TURBO NUTTER), DOMINATORS, MICHAEL KEATON, STU, SPEEDYSOFT INTERNATIONAL.     THAT'S IT I'M AFRAID!     OPTIC DREAM SIGNING OFF .....     AND NOW   A VERY LONG WORD FROM THE CUE-X SPREADER EXTRAORDINAIRE   -   TRACKER          THINGS THAT MAKE YA GO HHMMMMM!      YES,   WELL AFTER MORE THAN A YEAR OF NOT HAVING DONE A SINGLE PRODUCTION WE ARE NOW BACK AND WE ARE HERE TO STAY.     BEFORE WE WERE RATHER CASUAL ABOUT WHAT WE WERE DOING,   RELEASING STUFF THAT HARDLY GOT ANYWHERE AND IN THE MAIN WERE ONE MAN EFFORTS BY PRISMAX.     THAT WAS ABOUT ONE AND A HALF YEARS AGO,   AFTER I HAD KNOWN PRISMAX FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS.     THAT WAS THE LATTER HALF OF 1990.     THINGS ONLY REALLY STARTED TO GET INTO FORWARD GEAR IN THE FIRST FEW MONTHS OF 1991,   AFTER I HAD MET OUR FIRST PROPER MUSICIAN   OWEN   AND HAD HEARD HOW TALENTED HE WAS.     THE AMIGA VERSION OF HEAVEN CAN NEVER DO JUSTICE TO HEARING OWEN PLAY IT ON TWO KEYBOARDS SIMULTANIOUSLY,   YOU JUST WANT TO SIT BACK AND MELLOW OUT AS SOON AS HE STARTS PLAYING!     HE HAS SINCE LEARNT THE GUITAR   AND COMES OUT WITH SOME STUNNING RENDITIONS OF VARIOUS WELL KNOWN PIECES.     NOW WE HAD A CODER AND A MUSICIAN AND ME,   JUST TRADING PD AROUND VARIOUS PLACES BUT IN NO WAY INVOLVED IN THE SCENE.     THEN IN THE FATEFUL MONTH OF MARCH 1991 I HAD THE IDEA FOR    THE RED DWARF DEMO     THIS WAS DESTINED TO BE TWO THINGS,   OUR BIGGEST AND BEST PRODUCTION TO DATE    AND OUR LAST UNTIL WHAT YOU SEE BEFORE YOU NOW.     IT TOOK APPROX 3 - 4 WEEKS FROM CONCEPTION TO COMPLETION.     THIS TIME IT WAS THE WORK OF THREE GUYS,   PRISMAX   (IN THOSE DAYS KNOWN AS MAT)   WHO DID THE GRAPHICS AND VIDEO DIGITISING   ASWELL AS THE CODE,   OWEN    WHO AS MENTIONED BEFORE DID THE MUSIC,   AND AUDIO SAMPLING WAS DONE BY ME   USING PRISMAX'S SAMPLER.     IT WAS RELEASED AT THE   COMPUTER SHOPPER SHOW   IN MAY 1991.     WE RELEASED IT TO THE PD COMPANIES AND LEFT IT AT THAT.     CUE-X THEN EFFECTIVELY CEASED TO EXIST,   PRISMAX FIDDLED ABOUT WITH VARIOUS BITS AND BOBS,   I CONTINUED TO SWAP A LITTLE BUT STILL NO SCENE STUFF AND OWEN COMPOSED TUNES WHEN HE FELT LIKE IT.      BETWEEN MAY 1991 AND NOW I SLOWLY BUT SURELY GATHERED MEMBERS MOST OF WHOM I HAD KNOWN ANYWAY BUT THEY SUDDENLY SPROUTED MUSICAL AND GRAPHICAL TALENTS.     RED DWARF ALSO ENJOYED A RERELEASE AT AN ALL FORMATS SHOW,   WE WERE VERY PLEASED AS VIRTUALLY EVERY AMIGA IN THE SHOW HALLS HAD OWEN'S RENDITION OF THE  RED DWARF  THEME TUNE BLARING OUT AT HIGH VOLUME.     AFTER THIS WE RECEIVED A COUPLE OF CALLS BUT NOTHING MAJOR.     EVERYTHING THEN WENT BACK TO ITS     BITS AND PIECES BUT NOTHING COMPLETE     NORM.     THAT BRINGS US UP TO THE PRESENT DAY.    NOW WE ARE BACK IN EARNEST AND WE MEAN TO STAY,   MAKING OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE SCENE.     I HOPE TO MAKE FRIENDS OUT THERE IN THE SCENE   (PLEASE NOTE THAT WHEN SWAPPING WITH ME FRIENDSHIP IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN SPEED,   THIS HOWEVER DOES NOT MEAN LAMERS).     WE HAVE A NUMBER A PRODUCTIONS PLANNED AND IN THE PIPELINE,   THE FIRST OF WHICH WILL BE THE PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED RAVE MUSIC DISK FOR ALL YOU RAVE LOVERS OUT THERE   (MAJIC MUSHROOM YOU ARE GONNA LOVE IT!).     FOLLOWED BY VARIOUS OTHER THINGS INCLUDING  BURNING EYES LIVE  AND  THE RED DWARF DEMO II.     PEOPLE WANTING TO CONTACT ME SHOULD LOOK IN THE CONTACT SCROLLTEXT.
