Big grin Hello: another introduction

Hello, I am new to this site and glad to be here. This is a great site and I've already found much of interest to read. I am an Amiga enthusiast from Texas. Not your typical Texan, I am a rock/alternative rock musician with leanings toward both power pop and alt country. I have been an Amiga fan since a young age when I used to beg my mother to buy me copies of Amiga World. Eventually I got my first Amiga, an Amiga 500. The late 90s saw me purchase an A1000 in the original box and another 500, my original being sold when I went off to college. I still love Amigas today and recently began upgrading my 500 and 1000 to use in my home studio for audio and MIDI tasks. I was a PC technician by trade for more than 9 years and now I work in Computer Aided Design and Web Development. I am glad to still own my Amigas to tinker with in what spare time I have. I am now married and have 2 kids so I don't get enough time to play with my retro computers(I also own several vintage Macs) but I do what I can when I have the chance. This is a great website you have here!

Hi SubM00nS, and welcome to EAB!

It's good to see another Amiga enthusiast join the board - especially one who's a vintage Mac enthusiast too!

I have a CD/internet release coming out next month and I will definitely post some of that here. I am also about to do some major upgrading to my A1000 so that should be a great event to take some photos.

Photos are good!

Be interested in hearing about what type of music you play and are listening to as well...

The CD/album/digital release I've been working on in my little studio is finally finished and available for a listen.

You can go listen to it here: http://gradytruchelut.bandcamp.com

I hadn't begun to use my Amigas while making records yet when I recorded most of this, but it was all recorded to a computer Digital Audio Workstation. Mostly, I played live instruments(listed on the page) but there were some synths, samples and even an iPhone used on some of the tracks, not always where you'd expect Hopefully it will find some people to listen to it as I have worked very hard on this. You will recognize the my username in the title, I'm sure.

I am already starting on the next project to follow this one. I plan to make much more use of my Amigas in general and hopefully have the artwork done on an Amiga as well.

Oh and make sure you skip around especially on down to Let Them Draw and Shut Down which get a little eclectic and Floyd-ish. Everything on this is very different going from rock to country to electronic and back again.
