Ever burnt your favourite mods on CDs?
« on: September 22, 2007, 22:45:47 »

So, have you even made CD collections of your beloved modules?
I have, even three times, burnt CDs with my favourite mods. However, i consider many of them as crap nowadays, but that was back in 2004 and 2005, when i was just collecting random modules...
How about you?

edit: weee, post #400 ^^

I have a lot of collections that came on CD rom, I've not burnt my own collections in recent years. I think the last time was in 1995!

Hoboy.  I think I probably have everyone beat with my MOD insanity.

I have a few cassettes in storage from the output of my old GUS Max.  I had probably 3 hours worth.  I used to listen to them on my walkman.

  • I've gone as far as contacting a friend of mine from University in 1995 to get his copy of a MOD that I couldn't find anywhere.  Yep, he still had it, last month.
  • When Andy (phoenix) stopped supporting /pub/demos at Walnut Creek, I downloaded the whole thing onto my expensive 40GB SCSI drives over ISDN at the cost of $0.10/minute.  I then sorted them over the next two months of unemployment.  Then, California had rolling blackouts and toasted my drives.
  • I started sorting them again (I grabbed the torrents of ModArchive), and of course, when sent in for service, my laptop's HD was reformatted, despite promises it wouldn't happen.  Oops.
  • I ported mikmod to MacOS X in 2005 so I could listen to my MODs again, and fixed the old AIFF output so I could import them into iTunes, and burn them to CD.
I have a few CD-Rs out there, I have no idea where, but right now my collection is on my HD and my iPod.

I'm starting to rebuild my collection.  I think this time I'll have to pony up for RAID-5.  I don't want to do it all over again MORE than three times.   ;D ;D ;D

Yup, burnt them as audio files, even went as far as putting some of them on mini disc (which I still use)!

Yep! Years and years ago, I put together a set of four CDs of tracker music and labeled them as my "On The Right Track" series. Kept them in pretty heavy rotation in my collection for a while. I keep meaning to re-do them with some of the tracks I found later, but I keep putting it off.

(Oh, and hi Alex! Long time, no see. :) )

Blimey! Hello there, Novus, my mentor from years gone by. :) Yeah it has been a long time (and sorry for taking a month to spot your reply - I've only been dropping by every so often). Hope you are well!  ;D

I'm addicted to my tracker, so every year when I go on a holiday, I burn my best most recent tracks on a CD so that I won't be too lonely for the rest of the week(s) :)

I voted for no, cause I record them on tape. There is no better (imho)  8)

Many times, but I listen more to my ipod than CDs now, so most of my faves are on there!
