Back in 1990, at the grand old age of seven, I got bought an Atari STE 520. A few months
later I got my first taste of music production when I was given a copy of a program called
Quartet. You could control 4 samples at a time by placing them on a stave. I remember the
sense of wonderment at learning that the lower down the stave you placed the sample the
longer it would play for! Particularly great for this one drum loop, I seem to remember
who gave it to me (who was the son of my mum's friend and a lot older, maybe late teens?)
used to sporadically come over to show me his new creations which always used new sets of
samples, which I always asked for but never received
Anyway, was wondering if anyone knew of Quartet and if there was an
emulation I could use on my Windows PC? I've done a search on the net and apart from an
unlinked mention on Wikipedia there doesn't seem to be much (apart from sc68.atari.org
which as far as I can make out only hosts quartet files and not a program).
Thanks in advance for any advice!
