After the Commodore 64 and an AT&T PC XT (or AT? something-T anyway), my father bought us an Amiga 1000 sometime around 1986/87.
It was an incredible computer, but I never got a handle on programming it like I did on the C64.
I don't know if that contributed to my drift away from programming in college, or was related.

At any rate, the best application I ever had for it was [[http://www.echonyc.com/~jhhl/software.html|RGS]] - short for ''Realtime Graphical Synthesis,'' a "sonogram painting program." ([[http://koney-industrial.blogspot.com/2010/01/real-time-graphical-synthesis.html|a review]])

It looks somewhat crude by today's standard, but had some incredible FX.

You could get a sonogram slowed down to play for 10+ minutes, and pan the channels with a offset delay, so you had a continuously-changing soundscape for nearly 20 minutes.

foolishly, after the Amiga fell into my hands and I didn't do much with it, I sold it for $25 around 2002. At the time I needed the space more than anything else; the money was a token amount, the buyer had other vintage machines.
