Just about any computer can be modified for MIDI, but the ATARI ST was designed for it.
It was also engineerd to accomodate true bit-accurate SMPTE time code hardware. Many computers lack this important feature, so they resort to using MIDI time code, which isnt as precise as SMPTE and takes up part of the valuable MIDI datastream. When it comes to music, the ATARI isnt playing games, Neither are the worlds most respected MIDI developers. Never before has so much great MIDI Software been available to a single computer so quickly. As you can see, software developers have fallen in love with the ST.They have their reasons, and thanks to them, you can have yours.
