You can see the Hybrid Arts "Megastation" in the rack - a rack mount Atari ST - pretty cool!

Gerhard and Chris had a C-64 software and offered it to Steinberg. They didn't want it and so they went their own way. And yes, Gerhard is a medical doctor, while Chris is physicist – having something to fall back to, in case the MIDI software thing doesn't work out… The Atari ST version obviously came later – not sure exactly when – I started sometime in the late 80s; I remember doing a major area of "SL" part in the "Notator SL" name. Namely the code which allowed you to run several other applications in parallel to Notator SL. That part was pulled out of the Bugaboo debugger, which I wrote a bit earlier (TurboAss/Bugaboo). Also part of the engineering team was Michael Haydn (of SoundDiver/SoundSurfer) – at that point still based out of Munich.

In 1991 Gerhard, Chris and myself started working on Logic (I remember writing the main() function on a Mac SE, the code was written to be able to run on the Atari ST as well – the PC version came later). It shipped by the newly founded Emagic company in 1992 (after C-Lab stopped paying the engineers, who owned all the rights – not a very clever move). And yes, all of us are still working together – now at Apple.

It is an honor that some people who participated in the development of the legendary duo Atari-music write here.
I hope more anecdotes that transport us to the good old days (there would also be something wrong, but that is soon forgotten) and maybe some software or add-on can be rescued from the trunk of memories.
C-Lab, eMagic, Steinberg, Hybrid Arts, SoundPool ... all were magicians who endowed our machines with the power to make music comfortably.

Always a pleasure having you around here, mf... :cheers:

I do have some assembler code from Notator that Gerhard gave me when I was asking about how to address the additional MIDI outputs from the Log3, but I never got it working (and he had forgotten how it worked, by then, also... :lol: )

It's pretty amazing how much you guys got out of the ST hardware with Notator... I still remember the unused hard disk recording screens in the resource files, no wonder that never went anywhere..! :lol:

Ah, is Michael there as well? That's good to know. I still remember the emagic (and C-Lab) days with fondness (and still use and love Logic to this day...)

Yes, Michael is – of course – still with us. There are actually very few engineers, who left the group.

I'm glad to see that some companies like Gamiani include in their catalog references to legendary Atari musical tools.
