Atari CD ROM

some CDs I got from Floppyshop were appalling quality The risks of diversifying your business I suppose. They should've just stuck to floppies!! :D That reminds me of when I first got an 1050 drive for my 800XL. So much storage capacity on a single disk, how could one ever need more capacity?! With...

What can you do with a TT030?

Frontier works just great on a TT (and a falcon too), and no, a regular VGA monitor will not display the TT high resolution mode, at least not from the Atari VGA port. My TT has a VME graphics card fitted, which does allow for the TT high resolution mode, and in colour too! However I have noticed th...

Re: Best atari computer for midi / cubase?

If you want a machine for Midi, with some modification to eliminate noise, nothing in the Atari line can beat the TT. It has the speed and expandability that none of the others have combined. Add a graphics card and you will never have to scroll down the screen to access tracks and you will have al...

Getting Cubase onto disks

The cracks are better with more ram anyway as they take up some extra memory over the genuine versions, so even though it will work in 1MB, 2MB or more would be a better bet. As mentioned above though, if you have more ram you can run the cubase audio crack without the audio engine running and get c...

Getting Cubase onto disks

Both should be ok, I'd use 2,01 for general use and try 3, if you find 3 is a better fit for you then I'd look into getting a dongle version as that is a lot more stable than the crack (though the cracks are pretty good but not ideal).

Re: Getting Cubase onto disks

Right, files updated. Due to the nature of one of the Cubase cracks, the file sizes are quite large so I've had to split this across 4 disks and move a few things around. MROS is in the correct place and the driver files (And associated readme files) have been moved onto Disk 3. Direct link for the ...

Re: Getting Cubase onto disks

Right, here is the best bet on getting this onto your system, you have obviously managed to get to the point of downloading the files so they are sat quite happily on your PC. Also I've double checked the Cubase 3 disks and discovered the MROS folder is missing... Oops. Will rectify that later this ...

Universal Atari Modding Case

To be honest, if your using Cubase 3 I'd stick with the TT as it is the best machine for the job. The other machines will cope with the MiDI data just as well, but when the screen updates or your doing editing, nothing can beat the speed at which the TT just does things. The falcon is better than th...

Getting Cubase onto disks

The files themselves can be split across a few extra disks if need be, so things like the printer drivers and many of the MROS driver files can be put elsewhere, so long as the MROS file itself is in the MROS folder on the Cubase start disk. If you have access to something like fastcopy, you can use...

Wasn't there suppose to be an interface between ATW & ST ?
May be this is it.


Good thinking, but surely the cards would have been Atari branded? Also the ATW didn't have a VME bus so the other card would not fit anywhere

Well all I can add is that one is a VME cards, so TT or Mega STe only. Google came up with this thread, so google is not our friend today. At a guess the VME card would be used as a controller for something that could be automated, such as an early CNC machine or similar, as for the other card... We...

That would be a good idea, however there is no floppy in the st book. I think you can bypass the hdd by pressing either the alt key or the left shift key on startup

ST-Book with 4 bombs, please help.

Mine was doing the same thing and is currently off for repair. With mine it looks like the timing is screwed because of the DMA chip, which thankfully is the same as the one in the TT. Also my hard drive is screwed so it's being replaced with an IDE to sd card converter.

It caused a pretty spectacular crash in one of the public beta's, total locking of the pc! I think it was 5.04pb, I remember that because it affected standard vst5 and vst5/32 users differently, which was the reason it got spotted at all! Ah those were the days, it all stopped and went silent again ...

Re: Your reaction to the release of the Falcon

I initially missed out on the Falcon, simply because it was nowhere to be seen. We were set to record adverts for a local radio test broadcast in 1993 so we were looking to buy the Falcon on launch. But the scheduled launch date was while we were on holiday in Blackpool, so we trawled the computer s...

Query on ATA harddrives ( MAC )

Early ata macs topped out at 120GB, however this was down to the controller one not the OS. If you have an early CRT iMac or an IDE machine before the first CRT iMacs, then you may hit limitations, otherwise go for it

USB floppies only support the most basic of disk controls, so the more esoteric formats of the ST series generally can't be done. On the bright side though, a simple cheap PC will moe than likely still have a floppy interface in the motherboard, and the internal floppy drives tend to work pretty wel...
