You're a n00b, I bought THE first BiaB version with my Atari STe back in the days, plugged into a Yamaha MU50 expander.

Oh those were the days!

Floppy disks! 4K ram!

I’ll never forget my first $500 96K (if I remember correctly) Atari external hard drive.

Been there – done that
My mind is like my Internet browser: 19 tabs open, 3 of them are frozen & I have no idea where the music is coming from.

64 bit Win 10 Pro - the latest BiaB and RB - Roland Octa-Capture audio interface - a ton of software and some hardware.
