"NOVISAD was produced with my good old 386 computer that only had a soundblaster 1.0 card built in and therefore produced a very poor soundquality. To optimize for speed I restricted myself to 11khz in 8bit mono, otherwise I wouldn't have finished these tracks even today. Nevertheless, there was enough time to have a cup of coffee or to do something else besides while the old 386 was computing.
The last two tracks on the NOVISAD album ( demut, abschied) were done with my new computer that finally could work with 44.1khz and stereo. I also used that machine to convert all the previous tracks to CD format. Basically I used for all CD tracks the WinDAT program, a simple cut&paste program together with CoolEdit 1.5. This may sound simple but until I found the according sounds, entire days could pass by easily."
The cover of the CD goes back to a screenshot of an adventure game that was programmed by Kristian who is a big fan of adventure games, textadventures and role playing games. The mission is to find the key and to escape from the cave.
