Err, this is a thread entirely full of opinion. What I said I feel is true (otherwise it wouldn't be my opinion would it!) and I said it strongly because I felt strongly, YMMV. You can call me out on it but make sure you do everybody else who has posted first. Have fun counting everybody else in this thread who also made bold statements

Yes but a small price at that, 3 channels can give a perfectly good tune. I see the C64 crowd getting less upset about the lack of channels than the Amiga gamers do. The fault was just bad decisions/lazyness by the developers.

There was nothing converted about the music in Mega Turrican. Again, Mega Turrican was not a port of Turrican 3. I'm not sure what you don't like about the music on the MD? It sounds crystal clear, fantastic for the chip.

But you didn't mention that ratio difference specifically, which I felt was not telling the whole story.
