Heise


Heise: Trackerlabels: The pioneers of online music
«In the beginning there was the Amiga, Commodore's flagship in the battle for young home users. For musicians, the box did not have much to offer, everybody with some little equipment in those times went rather for the Atari ST. For the ST, there was professional software like Cubase, and it had a MIDI interface. But the Amiga had many, many colors. 4096, to be exact. That was a lot for the times when expensive PCs had either 4 or 16 colors. Compared to that, the Amiga was something like the first multimedia computer. The fitting multimedia software, though, everybody had to make on his own. And the kids programmed like mad. They cracked commercial game software, replaced their intros with own ones and spreaded their dared animations as so-called demos - some kind of electronic graffiti culture came into existance.

The cult got in motion when 1987 a certain Karsten Obarski published a program named "Soundtracker" for the Amiga. Obarski worked for the game company Eidos and probably wouldn't have dreamed back then that he would have been celebrated more than 10 years later as a hero for this step The Karsten Obarski Tribute Project. But he set with this simple program the foundation for a whole scene.»

Swedish and danish Amiga magazines

It is not only bad things  going  on  in  the  market  for  Amiga
magazines.  About  three months ago the Amiga community in Sweden
again got access to a magazine about Amiga in their own language.
This  magazine  is produced by the danish magazine Amiga Advis in
cooperation with Rolf Eric. He has this good point and  advantage
that he is born and bred in Sweden.

Temporarily he stays in Denmark but have learned  himself  danish
so  therefore  he  is  not  only  a  pawn  in the translation and
publishing in Sweden. We hope that som swedish writers will  join
the  list  of  suppliers  of  articles to the magazines. When the
magazines springs from the same source  they  could  exploit  the
united  efforts.  Both  the  swedish  and the danish editions are
medleys of reviews, courses, notices, correspondence columns etc.
In short, throughout a real magazine with what beongs to that.

But in short  of  costs,  the  magazines  are  not  published  in
colours.  If you are interested in supporting these magazines you
can obtain them in the

following ways:

With swedish and danish regards

Amiga Advis

Svensk och dansk Amigamagasin

Det händer inte bara dåliga saker på Amigamagasin  området  idag.
För  cirka  tre  månader  sedan  fick  AmigaSverige  återigen ett
Amigamagasin. Detta magasin startades av Amiga Advis i sammarbeta
med Rolf Eric som har den fördel att ha varit född och uppvuxen i
Stockholmstrakterna, men bor tillfälligt i Köpenhamn.

Rolf har blivit en viktig bricka i  att  få  de  danska  texterna
översatta  till  svenska.  Dock hoppas vi på att det också kommer
svenska skribenter för att tidningarna  ska  kunna  växa  samman.
Detta  vill  vi  uppnå  för  att  undvika  känslan av att den ena
tidningen kommer ur den andra, så att vi får  en  känsla  av  att
tidningen skapas från samma källa.

Båda  utgåvorna  av  tidningen  är  en  blandning av anmälningar,
kurser, aktuella artiklar, läsarbrev med  mera.  Kort  sagt  helt
igenom  ett  riktigt  Amigamagasin med allt som där tillhör, dock
utkommer Amiga Advis i svart|vitt tryck.

Är du intresserad i att ansluta dig till detta Amigablad, kan  du
anskaffa dig något av dem på följande sätt

Svenskspråkiga Amiga Advis

Den svenska utgåvan har kommit ut med två nummer och  den  tredje
är  snart  kommen  från  tryck och ska vara klar till utgivning i
loppet av en vecka. 1999 (sv) är  på  24  sidor  i  A4format  och
kostar SEK 25,-

2000/01 (sv) är på 36 sidor i A4format och kostar SEK 35,-
2000/02 (sv) och framåt kommer att vara på cirka 36 sidor i A4 och

Don't expect too much...
Some thoughts on the upcoming Amiga 2K. Not as negative as it might sound, but some facts to consider:

Don't expect too much - Thoughts by Martin Baute

In three days it will happen. On the "Amiga 2K" in St. Louis, USA, the new developer boxes are presented to the public.

It really seems like, for the first time since the AGA chipset, announcements of a new Amiga technology will be indeed followed up by a real product.

With interest I followed the enthusiastic expectation expressed on mailing lists, chat rooms etc. I hate to pull the brake on this enthusiasm, but I have to call out to many Amigians: Don't expect too much!

To prevent the big outcry after this weekend, "we have been fooled", "Bill and Fleecy aren't better than the people before", I want to have a critic eye on what we are up to.

The hardware that will be displayed in St. Louis will not be different from an off-the-shelf PC. Yes, that means x86. This won't change in the foreseeable future, since Amiga doesn't have a choice.

Yes, I hear the cry: PPC! But where to get one? The only manufacturer of high-power PPC systems in significant numbers is Apple - and their systems are not only more expensive than their x86 counterparts, but also much less documented. Apple simply doesn't tell every anybody all the details of their motherboards, as Be came to realize painfully.

The POP PPC boards by IBM? Except for the one I saw at the Amiga booth in Cologne, I haven't seen one so far. They are real, for sure. But where to get one, for which price?

So swallow the pill and take a x86 board. Let's face it: why not? The CPUs are no beautys, but they offer x times more performance than any (existing!) Amiga PPC boards, they are cheap, and available from the retailer around the corner.

(Well, I see, certain people from the Amiga community will likely hang myself after this article...)

Graphics? Be real, no company in the world can hope to outperform the big players in the business, ATi, Matrox, nVidia, 3DFx etc. just like that. And they, in turn, will most likely not offer some kind of miracle chip exclusively to Amiga.

So we have to settle with "standard hardware" in this area, too.

So what's special about the developer boxes at all?

Software, of course. But what kind of software will that be? If you think about it, you should realize that these systems won't show the new Amiga Desktop.

For one, it would be a miracle if, after a few (three? four?) months of cooperation with the TAO Group, it would be already finished. And if it would, they would ship user devices instead of developer boxes.

What will be running on the developer boxes will be Elate, the real-time core from TAO. Perhaps natively, perhaps "hosted" on e.g. Linux. (And in case McEwen pre-installed Windows on the Amiga developer boxes, I will travel to the USA myself to send him to the asylum.)

This will be supplemented by a documentation of the Elate and intent architectures (intent is the "multimedia layer" from TAO), probably a special version of GCC and a bunch of Includes.

Or, to put it an Amigian way: It will not be the successor of the OS3.5 CD, but the successor of the Amiga Developer CD.

Developers will be happy to get a glance on "the insides". For users, the developer boxes will most likely be as (un-)interesting as the last Cheapo-PC.

The fact that hardware is shipped together with the software at all is to avoid developers having to write drivers for their XY card with ZZ chip at first; at the same time, you don't have to specify your hardware configuration at length when sending in a bug report...

"But when the first end-user products are released, everything will be fine, wouldn't it?"

Sorry I have to pull the brakes on this one, too - no it won't. At least not automatically.

Even if all programmers from the Amiga community get themselves a developer box (and many will not, if not simply for cost considerations); even if ALL existing Amiga software would be available for the new machines in a new version, starting from day 0...

...that would be great for us, and a real miracle. But would it lead to the PC user next door getting himself an Elate-Amiga-whatever instead of upgrading his system?

Your friend wants to buy the PC with monitor, Windows, Word, and Works for 999 USD. Can you (without guilty conscience) recommend buying an Elate-Amiga with Monitor, Elate, AmigaWriter and TurboCalc, PPaint and MUIbase for 999 USD instead?

Yes, I hear ye: It will be much cheaper, because being much more efficient with the ressources.

Sure, and again the Amigians tell the world that AmigaOS is happy with a half-as-fast CPU because being efficient. Don't you remember the sorry glances?

It will take time. It will take the support of software manufacturers porting PROFESSIONAL applications to the Elate-Amiga. It will take applications that, in their elegance, efficiency, and their usefullnes aren't POSSIBLE on any other platform. It will take an unparalleled marketing campaign, and I don't know who will pay for it. It will take strong partners, supporting Amiga financially - because the startup money brought together by Bill and Fleecy won't take forever.

It will take a lack of attention from the competition, with their large amounts of "operative cash" and their monopolistic stranglehold, which could crush the small startup in no time.

You could read from between the lines of the Executive Update that Bill and Fleecy already have big-player companies at hand - just for getting confirmation on this (and to hear names) makes looking at this weekend's happenings at St. Louis worthwhile.

And, after the many years of hoping, waiting, holding out: It will take programmers porting their tools and applications to the new machines with full enthusiasm, with no regard for the collapsing "Classic" market.

Some will say: "I have done my part for the Amiga, now others should take the lead." God knows, I could spend my time with more pleasant things than hours of translations.

But right NOW is the moment when it will be decided: Have the years of holding out been worth it? Right NOW the developers have to take the chance to provide the plattform "new Amiga" with desperately needed software right from the start.

Even if it becomes a success, probably only a few will make the big money with it. But to say now that it won't be a success anyway means saying the recent years went to waste.

And in the last, it will need users more than anything else, spending their money on buying these tools and applications together with the new hardware; creating the foundation for the new users that might follow.

Don't expect too much. But do what you can!

Interview with Thomas Dellert (DCE)
Read this interview with Thomas Dellert (DCE), done by Petra Struck on March 29th, 2000, clarifying the availability of PowerUP products:

Interview with Thomas Dellert, DCE
Author: Petra Struck
Interview partner: Thomas Dellert, DCE Computer Service GmbH, Oberhausen, Germany
Translator: Martin Baute

amiga-news.de: What is the scheduled date for shipping the following products with P5 licence?

Thomas Dellert:
  • BVision: Over 100 already shipped to Vesalia. We ship finished cards daily.
  • Cybervision PPC: Production started last Friday.
  • Cybervision64 3D (bugfixed Version): The first 100 were shipped to Vesalia on March 28th.
  • Cyberstorm MKIII Boards: The first boards were shipped Friday.
  • Cyberstorm PPC604e Boards: We just recieved 400 604-233. I hope we will be able to ship the first boards in the next 10 - 14 days.
  • Blizzard PPC603e Boards: The circuits boards are already in storage. Sadly the delivery of CPUs and CPLDs is being delayed.
amiga-news.de: Why those big delays? What problems did DCE had to fight?

Thomas Dellert: The worldwide shortage of parts is a big problem right now. Here only some exsamples:
  • SMD Kondensator 1 NF. Delivery time 20 weeks.
  • CPLD Logik Chips. Delivery time about 24 weeks.
  • SGRAM for BVision. Delivery time about 15 weeks.
  • Tantal Elkos. Delivery time !!!!! Not this year.....
amiga-news.de: Is there a plan to continue the G4 plans from P5, or has DCE put these to a rest once and for all?

Thomas Dellert: G4 isn't on the list for now. The CPUs probably won't be available this year.

amiga-news.de: Is there a plan of developing new graphic cards?

Thomas Dellert: If we hadn't recieved the Permedia II chipsets, this certainly would have been an issue.

amiga-news.de: Is there contact between DCE and Bill McEwen? If so, can you tell us something about it?

Thomas Dellert: We are in contact. It's about technical details of the PPC boards. I cannot say more about it at this time.

amiga-news.de: The DCE website is partially availalable in German already, will the rest be translated too, and what is particulary interesting, will there be a "news" site, where everybody can see what's new at DCE?

Thomas Dellert: We are working on it. I hope to complete the site in the next 14 days.

amiga-news.de: Will DCE attend the Amiga & Atari show in Neuss, June 2000?

Thomas Dellert: All products will be offered there by Vesalia Computer. We hope that this time we have plenty of stock.

amiga-news.de: Will other retailers recieve products too, or will the hardware only be available from Vesalia in the future?

Thomas Dellert: Vesalia will for sure also ship to other retailers. (unk) (Translation: mb)

Java-Installation for Linux and Wind*ws
The documentation about the installation of java was extended. Now there are different sections which describe how to install Java® (JRE® 1.2.x) and Swing® under Linux and under Wind*ws. Additional there are some special scripts for Wind*ws available which make the installation very easy - only some mouseclicks are necessary now.

The new version 1.1 is now available. A bug was removed which took effect only under Linux and some special abilities were included. So the JavaRunner now tries to create the CLASSPATH-environment-variable if it doesn't exists. Additional V 1.1 works perfect with the new JRE® 1.2.x. (unk) (Translation: mb)

Amiga University wants you!
Amiga University needs your support for several areas:

Author: Kevin Orme
URL: Amiga University

Hello fellow Amigans.  I would like to take but a moment of your time to notify you of a new site that isn't quite done yet, but is definitely on the way and hopefully will be able to help *all* of you use your Amigas to the nth degree, as they were designed to be used. 

Due to the excitement being generated by this year's Amiga2K show, we wanted to announce our presence just before the show to jump on the bandwagon.  As Bob Scharp likes to say, Amiga2K is going to be HUGE!

The site is called Amiga University, and located at http://www.amigau.com.  We are currently looking for the following:

1) Visitors to the site, primarily Amiga users from around the globe who want to use their Amiga in new, different ways as well as expand on their existing knowledge of current interests.  Refer to the News page for the sections of the site already done vs. those still under construction (we're about halfway there at present);

2) Faculty for the university.  If any of you have specific Amiga knowledge or experience and would like to share it, please visit our Faculty pages and climb on board, we'd love to have you.  It doesn't matter if your expertise is in hardware hacks, Lightwave animation or MIDI wizardry, the more the merrier!

http://www.amigau.com/Faculty.htm

4) Finally, we will be at Amiga2K, sharing a booth with Northwest Amiga Group (NAG).  Please stop by!  We'll have mousemats and hats for sale, as well as faculty sign up forms and anything else Amiga you want to talk about, we're all ears.

See you at Amiga2K!
