jeffdevigneux's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Historical interest only"

Atari 1040 STE
This is the ETS in 1040, with 3 MB of additional RAM for a total of 4 MB, and 20 MB HDD, the Atari SM 124 screen, monochrome, more suitable as a PC screen in the same time.
I have always used with a famous MIDI software, Notator SL, Cubase who competed well in its early versions. Note that Notator was the only sequenced by patterns, ie non-linear, as they are now.
The only remedy that I have done in 25 years was to change a component that had melted, otherwise, never down, which prevent me paser to digital audio, how indeed take a gear works so well!
With one input and four outputs (provided with Notator extansion twelve o'clock), I manage 64 channels without problem, but attention is that of noon!
I use a second Atari, this is only for editing and programming EVS-1, FM synth, but it's so complicated, FM synthesis, I dropped; stronger than I would have extra sounds with Atari / EVS-1. I also use an old PC to edit only synths (evolver and micro-modular), the Atari is my only sequencer. Buy one today would be ... shifted. In addition, DD and time software is found.

Atari 1040 STE
I aquired in 2000 and used with Cubase 2.0
I had my pc but not for the music field
with the use of multiple keyboards and expanders noon multi_timbres (8 to 16 channels) I bought a Steinberg smp of occcase processor 24 for 2500 francs at the time that allowed me to use 80 channels simultaneously. a real pleasure.
with time, smp 24 burned the disk drive and then the screen is my leave but having kept all my songs and hundreds noon I'll file a new look into the case the screen 1024et sm smp processor 124 and 24

Atari 1040 STE
Personally, I found this and I always find great bike.
It's been a 10 years since I no longer use but is in perfect working condition.
I am an apprentice musician but I burst out well with this machine called the Mac at the time of the poor, lol.
I really liked the ease of use of this machine. It does buggait ever. I walked sequencers that thunder fire of God. I then Pro 24 and Cubase Synthworks D110 (I had a D10 that I still have). It seems to me that some studios still use this machine despite the proliferation of PC software.
~ 7000FRF in '86 config with color monitor, what was the average price of basic machinery of the time without connectors noon.
And if it were to do again, I would buy a machine like that with the technology today.

I will never use more depui Sune dozen years, but years "pro24" for beginners laborious pc, aa t a machine revolutionary, although Completely Exceeds e.

Before they acquire pa ny had smoyen record midday convincingly, the workstation sequencers were really bogus cluck.

My particularity prefers: MIDI integrates both!
no hard drive but it was symblioque.

The report quality price ..; al 6990francs era it was not anything .. plus the 24 pro or cubase
Notator ...

With experience I will ever have the choice about the same time because it was truly revolutionary model has the power house.
Today, but it worked etoujours Exceeds completely that he did not nor audio can be overcome with a dr 16 akai of opportunity (or any other hardware dtd) for the bargain price:
50 euros if it is complete with screen and software and disk formatting and audited svierges: why not
100 euros: dj expensive: a MiniPC ddi music march so stable (again most of the concerns stem from the fact that pc is too versatile and that everything is done above: no net = no of virus that disrupts the good of fonctonnement daw)
100 euros has avoided: a notebook to hand and plenty of hop vsti gratos for the traveler ...

No worries on that part of the disk under stokage, fans vsti plug ins could not use it, the GUI is confined to a single screen at a time ...

We are in the nostalgia, the tank simple and robust, not my s to learn, but not a member eparler mac cubase LE, a simple notebook pc DDI music (and no not going to recover the net viruses and hackers plug ins) will be much more convenient and versatile ...

10/10 for the epoch
5.10 in absolute

Vinz67's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Atari 1040 STE
I use it for 15 years, never had any trouble with. Cubase is the bttn it has not crash ever. You Started It quickly (a few seconds, compared to a PC ....)
Trs silent (no fan!), So I'm not dconcentr. I also use the tl to play games of the Epoch Times vidos :-)
Incidentally, I also used to program in assembler and C.
In short it is a magic machine. For music, I use it also to edit the sound of my D-50, D-110 and SY-35.
The only regret I have no hard drive.
Today, less than 200 with step and accessories, if you need a MIDI squenceur is my opinion that is best in a home studio! (I have a Kawai Q-80EXe, but I never touches)

What no one has said you can also use it as a soundtrack, to the good old techno music the old!

Be careful, be it a notch or Atari SM124 sm125 black and white in order to have "high-RESOLUTION" 640 * 400 that can run most software MIDI.
I put 8 for versatility, simplicity and qualitprix but not 10 because a hard drive even when missing) and that communication with a PC is quite tedious (for double density 720K floppy disks or port SERIES 232)

M0LI's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Atari 1040 STE
I also want to make my little tear.
O In the era I started using the Atari for anything other than play International Karate Plus (never known best fighting game), c'tait for cubase I was 13. J'tais young and innocent. Not a crash, a simple and effective, although j'me grieved.
Today I'm 21, and the PC has become a source of standards of heads taken.

Well, go, I agree with my PC I am more Gnral Midi. But when same. This machine provides a feeling of well be that I have with my PC.

Nikkodogg's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Atari 1040 STE
I put personal j j passke October 1 to find that a bit of a feat poquec'tait ke mm!
appointment is important! a beast that was run games (good games vla mouth compared to those of today llol) and had a talent for zik ​​...
j j I Get You Started it and think that if tomorrow's sell off my pc c j that J will have the hardware in the amount ...
And frankly if I had all the synths that dream j (j uses and that on my pc lol) as well as a good multi tracks to make the audio ... all this in sync (with a correct version of cubase) ... J will never actually bought from pc lol c simple ...
Implantable almost a cot PCs.
Only two negative points (but n not deserve lower the note is j ...):
- Weaknesses in the floppy drive (j've never seen an atari not run out of drive)
- Positioning and not making clever trs mice (which also often causes damage to the port in question)

But otherwise it is a pure Mahine for mlomanes o we do dla zik no-frills (we forget the VSTS software and other facilities) that will satisfy fans of the 16 MIDI tracks (32 for v2 of the cl if I remember correctly).

And to complete WAS qd mm era for a machine to last a ambitious over time. So 100 times a day advise a newbie to Get You Started on this bike than on fruity loops;)

Atari 1040 STE
I used an Atari 1040 STE for fifteen years. A marvel. Some of my friends had crashes, lockups ... their silent problem using Cubase versions UNAUTHORIZED without cracks and poorly cl. Personally, I have the license ... LC Black (v2.0) and rolls on rails! I'm sorry (for MIDI only) the "latency" of the PC edition.
Obviously the other hand I have a PC and it's really well optimized nickel. I do not know that Apple has a good reputable trs.

The quieter and more ergonomic and the cheapest squenceurs noon.
plant almost never do ... except when it heats up!
taient the tricks known: the surlever a little to help air flow underneath and the fan with a big fan of "tquot; APRS 5-6 hours (a little less silent, the coup!).
his office the silent ancestor of windows (and Designed by the same team as that is the Mac desktop, they say ...) the PC era o taient imbitable back in on a black background ... and no MIDI.
tj can do with def! ... if there is some good stuff around! ... and there are always spices dtach forums and passions.
go ... it's sentimental ... j'mets 10!
