Music made with Amiga 2000

As per comment on the Two Bards One Mic podcast, here are some pieces I composed with the Amiga 2000...

I have a still running Amiga 2000. It is upgraded to 33 Mhz 60030 (with physical switch to go back to original CPU), Fat Agnus, 8 MB Ram, IDE CD, 3 floppy drives, Genlock, SCSI hard drive, and more.

I composed some of my music with it back in the early 90s, and revived it so re-export the music to higher quality audio capture.

Here is the Amiga in action during a test broadcast:


I used a number of tools, but the pieces below were composed with Sonix 2.0

Runesword 1994 -

Amiga One -

Amiga in F (short piece) -

The Ocean Calls (unfinished) -
