From: K5B (David J.MacGraw.)
In Issue 48, member K8F Stuart Angell
requested information on the Amplinex
User Group for the Music 5000 system.
I made a similar request in Issue 38
and member K4B George Lynch responded
in Issue 39 (1st.Help! section) with
the sad news that Roy Follett, who was
the mainstay of the group, had died in
January 1993. It would appear that the
group died with him, which is a shame
considering the number of apparently
active members there were.
There must be many 8BS members who own
a M5000 system and would be supportive
if a Music/Midi/M5000 section was to be
created in the magazine. I'm sure our
Editor would welcome all contributions!
It would also be a fitting tribute to
Roy Follett if such a section existed.
Perhaps some of the original AMPLINEX
discs could be included in the pool -
I guess copyright problems will prevent
most of the music transcriptions from
being included but the editorials and
tutorial sections etc.might be OK.
Perhaps other members could put forward
their ideas and comments about starting
a music related section along the lines
established by AMPLINEX.
EDITOR.... I have a LARGE collection of
M5000 and M500 software gathered with
the various machines that I have bought
and sold. Sadly copyright is a big
problem, I cannot pass on the software
acquired. I have attempted to contact
owners of copyright without success so
far. Anyone wishing to contribute to
the above mentioned section is welcome
