bubba n stix is an example...on the amiga version you can choice between sound effects or music ..but on the megadrive version you can play with both
another examlple is the game Aladdin...the amiga version features sound effects+music but with audio-stoppage.....
No audio stoppage on the megadrive version of Aladdin
The Paula sound IS BETTER. Amount of sound channels is irrelevant, the Amiga more than makes up for this with sampled sounds as opposed to the 'bleep bleep' artificial sounding nature of the Megadrive.
You have heard of TFMX's 7 channel music yes? You do realise you can do realtime sample mixing to produce 8 channels in other music programs yes?
Oh how wonderful the Megadrive version of Xenon 2 sounded..... not!
