The Impossible Bass Tone Recovery Mission

Why oh why do I throw stuff away? Take a tip
keep every old disk, tape, dat, computer, hard disk that you do music
on.
Make backups of all the audio files, sysex dumps, sound settings, ALL
of it.
Yeah I do it now, but just my luck I have to recreate a bass tone that
vanished a long time ago.
Simply because I can’t edit an old tune for someone, I’ve got to
resurrect it.
I even remember making that sound at the time and thinking , how the
f**k did I find that?
You would also think my sound design skills have improved to the point
where I can just magic it from thin air.
Well they have got a lot better, but the whole point of new sounds are,
they AREN’T easy to make.So yeh, torture for me for chucking my disks away, now it’ll take weeks
(months) to recreate it.
So deep breath, suck it up, into the ring and take the punishment from
the blue skinned ones razor sharp uppercuts.
All the time hearing the words “I TOLD you ….NOT to …throw THOSE a
WAY….
