Ahoy always makes awesome videos with professional presentation and extensive research, and it was great to hear several Amiga and PC favourite mods playing in the background, too!

Very nice indeed, my childhood there... missing SoundFX :)

Yes, very nice one with facts more or less correct. (nice intro music indeed :))

really well produced as all of his videos, and surely something left out, but he put everything into what fits into the 40 minutes.

Great video. Watched it yesterday.

One of the Best scene related documentaries I've seen.
@serpent: I'm interested to know what facts are less correct since I didn't detected anything really wrong, just perhaps he missed to mention some famous trackers (like Oktalyzer), but except everything is perfect.

rez: It says the first Atari ST (1985) had better sound than the first Macintosh (1984) but since Macintosh had a hardware support for PCM (one 8-bit channel), it's not a straightforward issue.
SoundFX, Oktalyzer, Future Composer.. well theres a lot but also on C64.

@rez: well, could've used some other expression as i didn't mean there's something horribly wrong really :)

or Startrekker, AHX (PreTracker), Musicline editor, AON. But he mentioned the most used ones ST/NT/PT and Octamed, so I think that covers ~90% of Amiga Tracked Music.

The polish of this video is fantastic. The font choice, the illustrations, the visual legibility.

Take note, people.

That of course never goes unnoticed, when I watch Ahoy's videos. It's probably one of the best produced retro documentaries channel.
I loved how he exposed the Polybius hoax, so he goes the extra mile for his research.
His Amiga video is also a labour of love, one can see that.

Not only polish, but also the general structure. It tells a narrative loud and clear, never losing its grip. It's excellent.

those who know, know :-) nah, I'm fine with him not mentioning the "exotics" (queue the bouncing ball from Dark Star, heh).

Excellent video, I immediately relayed this to GS after watching it (a couple of days ago, thanks @legend!).

Best "documentary" on tracker music I've seen so far !

It was very pleasant to watch this. Only fault or misunderstanding I found at the PC Audio section, it mentions Gravis Ultrasound briefly, following with the context of being sound cards for playing midi. So one would think GUS was a lesser sound card just for playing midi. Not even mentioning of Sound Blaster and how GUS had the hardware mixing that SB was lacking.

Agree on that
