Atari stopped computer production
ten years ago and is no longer in the business
as a hardware manufacturer. Your only chance
now is to buy used equipment. Music technology
stores often have used Atari STs for
sale, but you need to know what you're looking
for, as the common 520ST and 1040ST models
can be found in poor condition (sometimes
not even working at all), hence their low
price, around £20-£30. At these prices,
they will be sold as seen, so it's a gamble,
unless the shop is willing to show you a
If you see a Mega ST or Mega STE, these
are more professional machines that will
cost more, and sometimes come with software,
maybe even internal hard disk if it's a
Mega STE. From my experience, the Mega series
machines tend to have been better looked
after, being premium models. You could also
try buying privately from home Atari enthusiasts,
who tend to treat the equipment carefully
and therefore you're more likely to get
a good working system than by picking up
ex-studio gear (unless, like I said before,
you know what you're looking for). MyAtari's
classified section is at http://www.myatari.net/buynsell.htm
- good luck with your music making.
