Well,about that megamix,

I have a master version on DAT (the mix was done with a cassettedeck,using the pause button for editting and 2 TDK SA 60 cassettes to do the mix).

I used tapeloops (from reel to reel tapes) of a few drumrythmtracks of Jarretracks.
So i record a rythmtrack on reel to reeltape and i cut the first beat and the last beat and stick them together with special editingtape,so you have a continues loop when you play it on the taperecorder,using a selfmade setup made by LEGO stones ;-) to lead the tape trought the heads of the taperecorder.
Then i record those loops on a Cassettetape for 5 minutes,i made a pitch control on another cassettedeck so i could match the tempo of the loops on the tracks i used in the megamix.
Then record all pieces i want on DAT and if the loops were in sync with the track played under that loop i record and edit it on the "master cassettedeck"

The mix is aprox 45 minutes,and with eldorado you hear a phasing effect.
that was another crucial point,cause then i made a "livemix" from the first cassettetape to another,because i used 60 minute cassettetapes and as you know each side contains 30 minutes;-)
So i must do a live crosover mix,to swith from the 1st mastertape to the second one.
And that recording was record on DAT.

Ahhhh.those were the days of hard working on a mix of that size and quality ;-) ;-)

Nowadays i can do it much better with the computer,using a program such as Ableton live;-)

But i have no plans to make copy's of that mix,because of the time i mostly don't have.
So you all must search on the internet or ask another fan for a copy.

Last year i found a site where some guy was selling Jarre bootlegs and one of those bootlegs was my megamix.
I made it for fun and some guy uses it to make money on it..
SHAME ON YOU!!!

So that's another reason that i don't make a copy of it.

Cheers,Marco

And about the oxygene 10 remix

It was made with a Roland JX1 (the organ sound in the beginning,same sound as the lead in "Felix - Don't You Want My Love")
A Kawai K1 II ,the Yamaha CS1X,and a Roland TR 626 drumcomputer.
The soundcard was a Creative AWE 32 and it had an onboard soundfont player/sampler.
I had a few samples and a MIDIfile from Oxygene 10 wich were available on the internet especially to use it for your remix.
I "Master" those samples and play it in the remix,but in another context than JMJ used in the original.
The sequencer was Cakewalk 3.0 and i edit it in a multitrack program,adding some effects.

I made also 2 other remixes,but the first one was the one who won.

Ciao,Marco

I have those other 2 remixes too, and it's a shame that breakbeat version wasn't the one chosen IMO...

A different version of that winning mix was also made for the (M)ercurey concert in 1998, the live version of that mix can be found on www.mercurey.info for those that are curieus ;-)
