Hardware, Embedded Systems Very sad news indeed. Jack Tramiel, founder of Commodore International and the man behind Atari, has passed away this past weekend. At 83, he passed away, surrounded by family and friends. People like this don't come in dozens, so we lost one of the great men of computing.

The falcon sounded nice. I should have bought that instead of my h/w sampler ;)

Was it really that noisy? Sounds like monitor hum there among other things.
They should have implemented DSP to lessen it, limiter etc, or maybe balanced outs.
Still would have been cooler than a lot of h/w at the time, and the file could have been written digitally.

No, Falcon is not noisy at all. It has CD quality input/output - musician always removed default bass booster from audio output.

Beside 16 channel digital audio recording, Falcon could be used as softsynth:

this is Ace Tracker (no samples involved).
