By the time you're 50 you will be on one of those mass hoarder programmes. :D

Well there are still some things I wouldn't fancy hoarding. Like this Polish Atari clone.

Steem manages just as well and sports the vital MIDI through your soundcard. Though nice to see ARM still going strong.




Though maybe I'd take the hardcard substitute.

But for the thrifty, a spare modem cable and dated PC full of old soundcards can try out the slave software.

I'm the thrifty and luckily I have just the bits in stock: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10418



Open for links.

It's simpler than even the video makes out. Just boot the ST disk (made on the PC with FloImg), run PCSLAVE in DOS* and adjust the transfer speed to 19200. Then when you access the ST's 'Z' drive, you're 'in' the PC hard drive.

...As long as it's FAT. In which case, have the ST select, ooo, A:\ on the PC or something.

MY ARCHIVE OF THE BITS: http://www.concept-single.net/Atari_ST_ ... ansfer.zip

Then gather some disk images, having maybe Steem extract them to your folder of choice. But this is still a transfer system at the end of the day, so you can't actually run from the PC.

* Myself, I don't even need DOSBOX to run that in ME. But I know that's very rare out of the box: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10418

£0 should be the right price. And just the ticket for a samples hub. From Amiga games to Atari Stereo Master!

Just one thing missing for me though - a disk image interface, emulator-style, runnable in Windows. But can't have it all. (And other programs extract to a folder anyway.)




Nice bits in here too, including for music:

And to wash it down, the Atari 1040ST review.


Hoardin' quite so bad now?

Well if you can't make use of Atari ST in a throwback studio, what are you doing there??
