Maybe that digitized speech was very top-notch at the time the amiga was released, but I think that synthesis can be more interesting! Maybe they should have made some sort of dual-chip possibilities (synthesis AND sampling). But then, maybe the price would have been higher. Well, almost certainly.
But, when ppl where composing with trackers capable of playing only 4 sounds at once, they where forced to be more imaginative. You had to "keep it simple" to be efficient.
Sometimes, low specs can boost creativity I think.
Do I need to mention that I sucked at this?
