Ephemeral Floppies (AtariST)

By ScanianWolf on August 17, 2020 12:01 am

After struggling all day with corrupted save files on "rotten" floppies and a fragile AtariST, that probably needs a proper check-up, I finally manage to conceive my first ever song composed in MaxYmiser on my AtariST.
It sure makes you appreciate modern technology when you lose hours of works due to unreliable old storage technology; very uncertain if I'm even gonna be able to save this project.

Have a nice week and buy hardware floppy emulators!
Take care

Sweet sounds. Cute tune.

Modern problems require modern solutions, but this classic sound is well worth it I hope.

The bass sound is really awesome. It must be hard to find floppies and it's a miracle your Atari ST is still alive. That was THE machine to make music back in the 80s/90s. Good job though, that makes this track even more precious.
