Are you sure? I've seen ST demos (not STE) that shift masses of graphics around the screen at a rapid speed. Maybe it's just the pointer to memory that's being changed?

I remember a similar discussion a year or so ago when someone told me that even 16-bit DACs in PC audio systems were also not straightforward to use (for example).

Is sample and hold a bad thing? It seems to be a common element to DACs.

I know, I had an Atari 600XL, then an 800XL. Great times. My big misstep was to choose an Atari ST when my parents offered the upgrade (after many years of the same Atari model). I went with the ST...

Fair enough, but I was comparing 16-bit with 16-bit and upwards, I just didn't mention it. At least that's what I had in mind with the OP.



And that's why more power is better, IMHO.

Who cares if the hardware is simplistic and basic? It's whether it SOUNDS good or not, that's what matters. And Paula blows that Atari ST rubbish and your precious SID chip out of the water!

What about the "#" character? That's plain ASCII, but I wonder if AmigaDOS will have problems with that, too.

So is "#" OK?
