Thank you for posting this video. What a fantastic and nostalgic watch this was, having myself started out in music creation using these very same early Amiga A500 music trackers as a young lad back in the late 80s.

I still enjoy making music today and use much of the knowledge I initially learned through studying many of the ripped demoscene and game tracker modules that were available during that early era of computer-generated music.

Despite the great advancements over the intervening years and in today's modern DAWs, I will always enjoy listening to classic tracker modules and using tracker software. Absolutely awesome stuff! 😊

We used a lot Korg X3, Roland JD880 etc. back then. Samples are mostly from them.

Didn't Aegis Sonix have "Owner Of A Only Heart" sheet as a default song? If so, I remember poking around it, not knowing what I was doing at all, as I was a kid then.
Great video, cheers from former Renoise user ;)
