This copy features DATEL MIDI module playing the working music. Existing online copies I found don't.

Lenslok stands guard over the working system. So boot using one of the Web's faulty copies and then swap disks at the main menu to audition mine. I think I called it MIDI.D64.

The program was originally designed for the BBC and in 1983 consisted of a music editing and synthesiser program. The Island record company at this time were looking for a music system and joined forces with the original designers. Prototypes of the system found their way onto some of the company's record releases.

Drink it in. Just listen to the music through brand new keyboards and boxes. That a C64 can still be used at the heart of a studio after 25 years is pretty impressive:

Rare home software which really did live up to its name. The Advanced disk was just about transferable. Lucky really.

Probably because the age of wonder has gone.

For computers, I'd say the period was around 1960s-'80s. They could do far less but we were wowed and grateful for what they could do. Then computers started doing everything and we expected everything.

Here's (presumably) the AMS chap showing off his chiptune skills to Ian McNaught Davis. It still feels you're watching something special to witness early home workstation magic.

Hi! Indeed he did. Boots used to sell home computers in the 80's; I remember going into the Sutton branch (with its round orange security cameras) and trying out the systems there. A favourite trick was to go to a C64 and turn the screen and border black, the text colour to white, and type 'Ready >' to leave it looking like a BBC or Electron display. WH Smith used to sell micros, too, at the time.

Downloaded this but can't seem to run it. It boots up, blanks out then goes onto blue screen with;

ready

Any suggestion how to get it running?

It ought not to give a blue screen as a quick load on Winvice shows it's working, fresh as a daisy.

The image which loads the main program is MUSIC_SYSTEM_D1.D64. The others are a pic-n-mix of working and knackered modules, to swap around as you may need in session. As I said, MIDI.D64 contains the working MIDI module and I think that's the only issue.
