This is my first computer. Atari itself was unique device - look, with 1
M of RAM it had smooth graphic user interface, MIDI IN/OUT, TV-OUT and soundblaster installed. Their slogan was "Power without price".There were a lot of musical programs and games on this platform. On every recording studio I've seen Atari with installed sequencer-program called "Notator". And it's no wonder that nowadays several programmers making emulator of this "old good" machine.
For synthesizer Roland D-20 software company Steinberg (yes, producer of famous Cubase sequencers !!!) made in 1988 the best (IMHO) tone-editing program.
This program was named Synthworks, you can download it - here! Short manual is here. Full original instruction (on German) is available inside of the program as pop-up contet help and also here.
To work with editor you need first install Atari-emulator. I can advise you STeem
- the only one Atari-emulator with full MIDI-support.
Update about STeem: Several years ago bros Hayward stopped to work with STeem, ... but good work is never disappear - the flag is now in new reliablle hands - Mr. Steven Seagal is continuing the job as STeem SSE (Steven Seagal Edition).
