Back in the early days of the computer game industry, the music, as well as everything else, had to be painstakingly programmed in by hand. Getting the music to sound anything like a real tune was hard enough, but getting the instruments to sound anywhere near authentic was almost impossible. Thankfully, in the late 80’s, machines got bigger and better, and with a lot more resources.  Then along came the Commodore Amiga (and thanks to stolen blueprints, the Atari ST), with new 16-bit technology, and up to 8 available audio channels to mix down to high quality stereo. Many Amiga games came with great music and the competition was left behind for many years to come. Amiga Retuned Volume 4 is a compilation of all those great Amiga game music completely remasterd.
