    Don't forget music as well, Urban Shakedown (Aphrodite) used 2 amiga 500's to create their hit track 'some justice' using Octamed back in '94.

    So much rave/hardcore and d&b was done on Amiga's.

    Xenon 2 Megablast - Bomb The Bass

    was another, as well as that other demo with the chicks in the eggs.

    I thought 'Bomb The Bass' aka Tim Sim..... whatever his surname was used a few drum machines and drum synth to create Megablast from a load of samples and Xenon 2 Megablast was a game released with the track sampled into it by someone else.

    I'm not trying to prove you wrong as I know you know your stuff but that's what I remembered from the late 80's.

    Aye, something like that (My memory is hazey at best!). Tim Simenon let the game makers sample all the instruments and rebuild the track on the Amiga. Was one of the first mainstream songs to be near fully replicated on domestic computers. There was a demo you could get that had it in an octamed player. Only a few vocal samples were missing.

    There's a group on Soundcloud that still use Amiga's to make hardcore/d&b tracks. Amazing stuff considering the hardware and the age of it.

    I stopped using Octamed about 20 years ago, I thought the scene had completely moved on from it but that link you posted still shows tracks made with it on the amiga.

    I dug a little deeper and found out Calvin Harris also made his first album using Octamed on the Amiga.

    The Amiga really was a great machine!

    Wow, xcopy. Note that is a blast from the past. I had the dongle that went with it that you connected to the external floppy.

    I'd love to see the JR cook book again, although I doubt any of it is relevant any more.

    Do not get hold of that, if it gets found out that you've got it you may well face jail time.

    Your setup sounds similar to mine.
    I miss the the thought of mine rather than the machine itself. Every now and again I'll fire up an emulator and I do love the games on it but they just don't seem to hold my attention any more.

    At least I know mine went to a good home, I sold it to Detector on here.

    Seriously? From memory most of it seemed to be about having the US phone system. Oh, and bomb making.
    Ahhhhhhh, I see!

    I went through them all. A500, A1200, A4000 and in the end an A600 which I got rid of quite quickly.

    Used to go to a few copy parties - In fact I was at the one where Jesus on Es won the demo comp Made some really good friends from groups like Scoopex and Digital and knew a lot of contributors to Grapevine (if anyone remembers that).

    Ran my own BBS (Using AmiExpress) for a year or so but it was too much work and cost a fortune in phone lines (especially as I was only 18 at the time and in a low paid job). Used to write a lot of addon modules for it that got used by quite a few other scene BBS'.

    Was quite impressive running an Amiga BBS on a 1.2gb hard drive in 1994
