Unfortunately, if I have to explain what is cool, it means that we are very far from understanding.
I suppose that anything ancient from Atari could be imitated with modern systems, but the point is to refer to the source, enjoy the original material, the old device designed for use with the computer of his time. I bought one of the devices, I have fun looking for pieces and completing the puzzle, maybe a Christmas party synchronizes my Atari with music and lighting, but the fun is not the party: it is the possibility of doing it with old devices; surely it is easier and cheaper to hire a DJ with its sound and lighting system, but that is not what I am looking for.
On the other hand, in the second half of the 80s all computers could not professionally handle MIDI devices for music and lighting, and many of them have not had Cubase. Atari is present in all professional fields.
I hope I have explained clearly enough, but I will give another example: any current computer can record multitrack audio, even a laptop; why get complicated with Atari and devices from the 80s and 90s? because we are in Atari-forum, not in "Prosound News 2019".
