Cool video! :) :) thanks.

Some of this music sounds like music in B. A. T. :)

Was there any software better then CuBase or Notator/Logic back in 80s for music?

better is subjective: Dr T's 'KCS' and Passport 'Master Tracks Pro'

Thanks for replay.
I never hear of these two programs...

But both are for ST.
I was rather thinking if there was some better midi programs then these on ST in 80s?

The main software used back then would be Cubase & Creator/Notator on the Atari ST, Performer on the Mac and later Opcode's Vision.

There were plenty of others - KCS, SMPTETrack and Mastertracks Pro were all powerful and capable systems. Other systems had good apps too - KCS was on most systems, the PC had stuff like Sequencer Plus, the Mac had a loa of stuff too.

But really, back in the day, the "big" four sytems were really Pro24->Cubase, Creator->Notator->Logic, Performer->Digital Performer and Vision->Studio Vision, with Pro Tools being one of the first audio-focused DAW (that was developed "backwards" - audio first, then add MIDI, unlike the other sequencers which all started as MIDI sequencers first before adding audio...)
