The only problem is that there is a lot of demos. :-)
If you have any favourite demos that really kick the Amiga scene of the table,
I would like to know what demos to look at?

Some have good GFX and animations, but.... almost every soundtrack suck. Either cheap techno from the 90's or dull dubstep stuff...
Bring back the good old STF melodies or modern STE stuff.
The most important element in a demo for me is the music. I almost don't care about the rest.
So I need stuff like this :

@Sturm: Yamaha sound is not Falcon specific. Don't talk about Falcon demo and expect Yamaha sound to be something special for Falcon. That's ST stuff, or Amstrad/Schneider-CPC... I would be disappointed to see a special Falcon demo using Yamaha sound only. Yamaha is there only for legacy support, for ckey click... Falcom music is digital audio, DSP realtime sound modification and things like this. A now 25 years old machine which is powerfull enough to play MP3 (up to 128 kBit, accelerated Falcon even more) which's popularity only starts 3-4 years after Falcon 030 release, maybe the oldest affordable computer capable to play MP3 in good quality.

The best demos for Falcon in original configuration already have been listet here. My personal favourite here is Sonolumineszenz, but having an 68060 in Falcon opens again another impressive world...
Power without the Price. It's not a bug. It's a feature. _/|\_ATARI

Technically, I think http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=66698 is one of, if not THE most advanced stock Falcon demo that's out there.

It not being mentioned here is another indication that its gravely undervalued ;)

@1st1 : I'm not talking about YM or digital audio here, but more about the compositions themselves, the catchiness and how long you will remember them.
No memorable tune yet on the Falcon for me, except this one maybe :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6PVMQBBVN0

As for the 68060, the TBL demos are awesome, but the tunes are meh, and are conversions from the Amiga :mrgreen:

I miss Jochen Hippel music. :(

These are not demos but rather games but nonetheless stuff that show Falcon power (and shame Amiga users :) ):

- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTxwfRl_I0U Quake 2 like engine
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjgWx3DE1CY Atari Quake 2: Beyond Q2, part #1 (there is DL link in comment)
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voiRnr72YhQ Cho Ren Sha
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hQT5fordkHM Doom
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLPOMrAmiPs Beats of Rage
- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PKP2Xds-evg Ace synth
(note that some of this stuff require 14MB! Otherwise they run on original, unexpanded 16MHz 030 Falcon)
...This should be sufficient to show Falcon superiority over Amiga.

If you move to accelerator boards, any Amiga 68060 demo ported to Falcon works better (smoother) on Atari Falcon with CT6x since it use SD-RAM.


Beside demos already mentioned here in thread, I would add few:

- Electric Night by Dune and SMFX 2016 http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=68566
- Don´t Break The Oath by DHS http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=2165 (require 50MHz 030)
- Joint Venture by Absence and other 1996 http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=15718
- Enraged by Avena [web] & Digital Chaos 1995 http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=11224
- Obnoxious by Inter Development 1995 http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=17786
and I like Mystic Bytes demos :)


Note that some years ago I open similar thread on eab - I ask Amiga users to point me to demos that are the best regarding 3D stuff on plain Amiga 1200 with Fast ram:
