The smartest guys started in the cracker/demo groups for sure. But I guess that's kinda over by nowI don't think I ever met a single person who didn't use cracked software at some point. Years ago I was a regular in an IRC chatroom for one of the big production forums and a few developers would hang out. One guy was head of a well respected company. Turned out he used to be in a major cracking group and that's how he eventually got into coding his own stuff.
Wew thanks, my mixes are usually complete ass (if you peek through my previous post in this thread you'll be able to tell), I feel like this was an exception and I'm very glad it does make a difference to people after all!
No-one has seized this opportunity with the same gusto, though.It seems unlikely no one has thought of making techno in 3/4 time before. There's another reason no one does it which I will leave to the reader's imagination.
I'd be up for that! What would we do once we had it, though?What do you lot say about making a dissensus compilation? Maybe a month to get a track together with some kind of theme for cohesion?
