Does anyone remember which Amiga magazine had an article or an interview with Betty Boo? I do remember she specifically says somewhere she had an Amiga 500 but only footage of her talking about it she doesn't mention the Amiga at all.

Front 242 used A500 for their early artwork according to this article. Listening to Rhythm of Time as I post (the rolling ball in the music video kinda looks like COVID-19 - Granted a strange way to link Amiga, 80's music and COVID19)....

Currently we have:

Pete Cannon. This guy rocks OctaMed on an A1200 and makes music for adverts, TV, his own releases etc. The 1200 is hooked up to external midi gear and drives all of it. I cant be sure, but looking back all this started because he fished out his childhood A1200 some years ago!

Another one, not so famous granted but a mate of mine!

Xtra Spice Mikey, also known has Phineus.

This lad is nuts! known him for years.

One more is Darren Flinders.

He made a bunch of pretty dam good mods on the A1200, got them onto CUCD's. I didnt know him at the time until one day a mate of mine introduced me to him! At that time we were all members of the PC version of Octamed Soundstudio. Cant get over how many years have past when looking at that old stuff.

Love him or hate him, I'm surprised Kanye West hasn't been mentioned:

Laurie Spiegel used Music Mouse on an Amiga 1000 with a track from her Unseen Worlds album.

I believe Bomb The Bass out of the ones not added that people did talk about is right.

I believe they used it as their lofi sampler whilst they also used STs for playing real midi as well.

On Beat Dis there is s even a breakdown where it's completely AMIGA with an AMIGA synth baseline and an AMIGA drum loop sample.

I do have one of my own though Eye Know I think it's called where that uses it as a grainier sampler as well.

The AMIGA as a sampler in mainstream music was pretty much used as the affordable lofi option of an Emulator so if it sounds more lofi than a Paul Hardcastle it was pretty much the AMIGA computer.

1988-1989 dance music samples if not some or all of the full track is pretty much all AMIGA as people found out quick it was the affordable option if you didn't have the real thing being a Hardcastle or a Pet Shop Boys already having a real Emulator broadcasted on TV that it is the option for samples at a cheaper price.

Everything ohhed and ahhed about probably definitely was if it has either the AMIGA tracker sound in high quality or a so lofi sounding sample.
