INTERVIEW: Tom Bajoras (Hybrid Arts and Atari Hotz).

Post by Atarieterno »

Hello;
This is the interview that José Antonio "Atarieterno" (alias "Luis Ortiz de Sandoval") has done with TOM BAJORAS (Hybrid Arts and Atari Hotz):

http://www.mediafire.com/file/puffdpl7h ... s.pdf/file

Tom Bajoras could be a Renaissance man, able to discuss with Leonardo Da Vinci the proportions of Vitruvian man and add a musical component; but he was born in the twentieth century and in his curriculum is modestly defined as "A person who has over thirty years of experience in music production, recording, and composition. He works on a wide variety of projects from his custom-built studio, including producing song demos, recording narration for videos and audio books, songwriting, and keyboard performance. Working closely with his clients, Tom offers personalized one-on-one services which can include mentoring, talent development, and coaching. He offers a supportive, encouraging environment where every client can feel free to be as creative as possible".
But Tom has more facets in his life, has been an active part in the legendary times of ATARI, contributing in an area of musical application that would make these computers immortal, building one of the basic and creative pillars that represents the genesis of what today we enjoy like music with computer treatment or DAW: working in the pioneer company "HYBRID ARTS, Inc."
Track Gold, EZ-Score Plus, EZ-Track, EZ-Track Plus, GenEdit ST, GenWave, HybriSwitch, Ludwig, Melody Maker, MIDI Utilities, SmpteTrack, CZ-Android, DX-Android... is just one part of the great software listing of the fabulous Hybrid Arts company where Tom worked as one of its programmers, in addition to other parallel creations like Xlator (for Atari/Jimmy Hotz MIDI Translator)...

The Hybrid Arts catalog also contains an important amount of hardware for music applications, including several of the first sound systems with professional quality and affordable prices: ADAP SoundRack, ADAP-II, Digital Master and DMEx (possibly the best D2D of the computer's classical history). He also built hardware add-ons such as the RC-44 based on a rack-mounted SyQuest, rack-mount housings for Atari computers, MIDI multiplexers and SMPTE synchronizers that made an elegant transition between the analog elements and the digital era that began his reign in those years.

That ADAP setup is amazing looking. Wasn't even aware such a thing existed. Enjoyed the back and forth with him and Jimmy in getting the translator software finished. =)

It is just a visual composition for an advertising cover, I saw him working in a professional studio at the beginning of the 90s and of course the computer was in one place and the Digital Master unit in another.
My Digital Master I have it under the table and the Atari computer on top, and the monitor on a shelf.
