"Cryptic Tetrad" is what I called myself from about 1989-1991, and it's all Amiga MODs, though I tried not to thing of it that way at the time.

I started doing Amiga music (MODs) around 1988 or so, using SoundFX(rare) and OctaMED(more well known). Later I added keyboard and external stuff, but "Cryptic Tetrad" is what I called myself from about 1989-1991, and it's all Amiga. I've done no real post-processing on this old stuff to keep it real. It's pure digital to digital using uade2 to play the MODs, and lame to encode them. My favorite bands listed are those from that time period, not necessarily what I listen to (much) anymore.

Have you performed in front of an audience?
No, playing this stuff live would make it something completely different, unless I just set up an Amiga or two on the stage to alternate playing songs (one loading while the other plays). These are Amiga mods... ancient history.
Your musical influences
For this stuff, Amiga MODs and the bands I listened to at the time: Front 242, Skinny Puppy, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Erasure, Nitzerebb, Cyberaktif, Ministry, Butthole Surfers. That's just a short list.
What equipment do you use?
For this stuff, it was Amiga 500, 512KB RAM (That's half a MB!), and MOD tracker programs. I started with SoundFX which seems to have been a rare choice, then moved on to OctaMED, which is fairly well known.
Anything else?
This stuff is 20 years old!
