I disagree. Certainly in the early Amiga years there was this clamouring to do mods with big sampled pieces in them and they only sounded passable back then because no other computer in 1987-88 could do it.

But when better musicians got their hands on samplers and Amigas, i would defy you to find scratchy or low fidelity samples from the top guys.

And because they were able to use Protracker to its fullest, tiny but clear samples were used and its part of why so many Amiga mods stand the test of time and still sound clear and listenable on modern tech

Go on then Galahad/FLT - throw your recommendation into the ring for someone who's yet to be convinced. I've managed to get my 8 year old girl into metal via their more delicate numbers and that's sort of what I'm looking for.

I did buy this EP but I'm now looking for stuff I can play on the machine itself: http://bleepstreet.bandcamp.com/album/a-for-amiga

Good selection there Galahad, thanks. I must try and knock a few out myself and see how I fare.
