James...'s review"Budget but good"

Commodore Amiga 1200
Polyphony? I work on Octamed 6 running 8 parts at the same time. Some interesting filters and some interesting sampler quealities in Octamed 6. Of course, it can have a midi implementation. Octamed 6 is much better and intuitive than Logic and Cubase VST.

Choose FMSynth (as its name says is an Amiga FM superb-synth program). Its pianos are similar to dx7 ones. No velocity, but very good effects on it. Octamed has some good filters and a bit more. But Oktalyser is real-superb. This program occupies less than 200 kb and it has a really good real sampler that can make as many fractions as you want of your samples, add reverb, add delays, define the delay level,how many times will the delay repeat the initial sound. If you are into Amiga programming, you can make even more interesting things. I and a friend have programmed a new version of Oktalyser that we have called Otalyser FM. It's similar to Oktalyser, but it has an improved FM-FX section. The effects on the sample are based in eight algorythms that we can mix in the way we like or make a route through them in some order that we can program. This mean that one algorythm define the kind of effect first launched (within 122 different FX), the second defines the first variable in the effect (ie, the tempo in the delay effect), the third defines the second variable of the FX... And we can save a sample with that FX-algorythm settings and then apply more FX once saved. We can in practise add the 122 FX at the same time to only one sample. And it only occupies 216 kb! Try it with a PC.

I'm using the classic workbench 1.3 rom. 256 kb gives you a easiest OS for a computer than hundreds of mb of MS Windows. It launches much faster and is by very far much simple to use. I use it with many programs and teh specifications of my great thing are this: Motorola MC68000 ECS set 1 Mb expanded ram no hard drive no midi sequencing just 1 floppy disk unity for saving your work it has plugged in an autoconfigurable sampler Boring? Hej! Let me finish my explanation! The sounds are simply great! depending on the program you manage, you can get korgs, moog or analog rolands in a second. I'll say mor in the expressiveness part.

Commodore Amiga 1200
Chronologically I had an A500, an A2000, A1000 & a one A4030.
I jousted the A600 & A1200 to my "pedigree" given the number of Amigas I did at that time adopted the school!
A Gisors, one could search the 520St: there was no / more!
The few owners had migrated to the Amiga.

I remember spending one of my friend Cyril in PC tower case along with my 4030 suffered the same treatment!

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

Commodore Amiga 1200
There are ignorant. I bought my 1200 in July 2004 to 3 euros in a garage sale ...

What can I say? The fastest Amigas format keyboard processor 68EC020 to 14 MHz, AGA chipset, hard drive, 2 megabytes of RAM ...
Workbench 3.0 system: more efficient, more customizable: colors, complete translation, datatypes ... foot.
In addition, it has a PCMCIA slot.
Thus, through cfd (search on Aminet (, you can use a flash card adapter (I use an SD card 128 megs like that ... 3 times bigger and 3 times faster than my hard drive ...). Pure plug'n'play.
Alternatively, this port can receive a network card - or Wi-Fi!
Apart from that, the few games you break out even more AGA.
Read my review on the 500, you will know also what is the Amiga 500 in terms of music.
In short, it's beautiful, it's fast, it's simple, it's functional, it's Amiga.

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

Commodore Amiga 1200
I use this beast ptite since 1992!
Multitasking, simple, boots in seconds, stable, etc ...
The only drawbacks: lack of power base (I bought a lot of stuff, because I do not do that with sound, I code etc. ...), no midi interface and the original 8 bits. This last point is both a quality and a fault.

Quality / price!

The amiga it makes crazy!
