Re: Musical potential of the NEXT.

If you have any technical suggestions about what you’d like to see the Pi do or what the interface should be like, please give them. I’ll make sure they get passed on to Victor.

Re: Spectrum Next@28MHz obsolete?

As I recall, they were really careful about announcing the turbo modes, because they were not sure if they would work.. and then the memory timing hassle happened. If they get it to work again, great, but if not.. too bad.
