I am happy if these old ads are nice for Atarians.

Interesting but I guess should be no surprise they advertised it but very cool! :)

I love this picture the most for some reason. The most awesome Mega STe (wish I had the room to keep mine connected), the long haired musician, the coffee, angle of the picture, etc. Just great!

Yes I am so happy I found the original monitor. I had to fix it my opening it up and adjusting the brightness setting. Resolution is so nice and text is so clear I am amazed really. I will be getting a cable for modern LCD and go a lot bigger on the screen perhaps 30+ like the other workstation monitors and have it suspended above them fixed on the wall. I need to find some kinda mounting with adjustable arm. Any ideas?

I remember the US ads, but the non-English ones look really cool...even if I can't read Spanish or German. 8)

I recall a time where it was a bit weird when I could see ads for Atari STs in Music magazines, but the really big computer magazines like Compute had stopped showing anything but PCs. I'd say this was probably around 1994 or so.

I don't know whether Charlie Steinberg is still involved with the company, but I'm fairly sure that there are still original developers who still work on Steinberg products.

As for C-Lab - C-Lab weren't a software company, they were a publisher/distributor. The Creator/Notator developers split from C-Lab acrimoniously and formed emagic, developing Logic (and publishing other apps like SoundDiver), until they were acquired by Apple, and much of that team is still developing Logic (and related apps) to this day...

Thanks for answering.
Steinberg, C-Lab (eMagic), Hybrid Arts, SoundPool, Drs T, Plasmec Systems ... are brands that opened the digital music so that everyone could access it without the need for millionaire investments. All of them together with Atari machines are part of the history of digital music with a before and the after.

Indeed!

Note - I run an archive of 80s/90s music magazines at http://www.muzines.co.uk - there are plenty of Atari ST music software and peripheral reviews and features, so if you like the music tech of that time, it's a goldmine of stuff!

Thanks! It really was a golden age for the Atari ST, I bought mine firstly for MIDI (C-Lab Creator) but then did *everything* else with it - DTP (Calamus), programming (GFA Basic) - I wrote some MIDI programs too.

I'm also ad tagging everything as well (though this is not exposed yet on the public site) so eventually you'll be able to search, for example, "show me all the C-Lab adverts for 1987" - there's a lot more of the ads like the excellent ones you've posted here.

Thanks for the nice thread! :thumbs:
