                             Aminet 12 CD-ROM
                             By:  Jason Compton 
===========================================================================

Well, at least I know I'm not alone in the world anymore.  It was
refreshing to read CU Amiga's Aminet 11 review, where there was the same
frustration expressed that I've been talking about for some time now: just
what can I tell you about Aminet 12 that I haven't said about Aminets in
the past?

Ok, I do have one complaint.  The new disk icon is in my opinion inferior
to the old.  But beyond that, it's pretty much the same Aminet CD we've
come to expect-nice AmigaGuide interface, settable preferences, and the
featured theme is music, with a load of MODs and instrument files on tap.

The commercial software package this time around is, appropriately enough,
OctaMED 5, which should encourage you to consider OctaMED SoundStudio when
it becomes available later this summer.  Also included is a special version
of the soon-released Symphonie.  Both should be reviewed in upcoming Amiga
Report issues.

I swear, I keep watching for big problems and I'm just not finding them.

Of note on the CD is an MPEG animation of Urban Mueller juggling hard
drives.  It's horrifying to watch, especially the ending...
