^^ Hahaha, I got it from a guy who had retired from his business doing ... video filming & editing, specializing in wedding videos.
(He used an Amiga 2000 with a Video Toaster for the main processing, which was gone already. Not sure what this one was for in his setup.)
(Incidentally when my cousin and I went to the same tech-oriented high school in the mid-'90s, he was in the film program, and had his very own Amiga 2000, with a ton of upgrades, games, and... a Video Toaster - which was utterly absurd for a 17-18 year old in 1996! I was mad jealous. I conversely got stuffed into the desktop publishing program where I got to learn Aldus Pagemaker & web 1.0 design with Aldus Pagemill, for Windows 3.1, as taught by an angry & bitter man who thought 'programming' meant the microwave and the only thing 'fun' that computers were good for was virtual fishing. Yep, that sure proved useful later on in life.)
That aside aside... back to My First Amiga, which is awesome. Was listening to mods with Protracker on it all morning. Everything seems to work except the floppy drives which sound like this
in case Photob*cket is being an ass). They both do that - anyone want to guess if this is fixable? I don't want to mess around with them too much and risk damaging my disks though.
It runs CDs just fine (most of the time) though so as soon as I figure out how to burn my own and make them bootable I should be good to go. But would be nice to have the floppy working for saving data. I'm looking into this USB floppy emulator
as a replacement.
Looks like I'm going to need some upgrades, I want Kickstart 3.1 and some more RAM so I can run Octamed Soundstudio, and maybe an 020. Just modest stuff.
Actually I'm open to recommendations.
