That was going to be my next question - how does it load/run the WHDL's :)

I think I've just expected too much from the c64 mini. Initially, I didn't
even plan to get it, but one day, Amazon had them for 19.95, so it was hard
to resist :D
I can always put the Pi4 in the case and make it something more universal.

I did make some music on Amiga in the past, but I think it was Octamed
and/or Fasttracker

Yes, prices are gone crazy. I really regret selling my Amigas. Luckily, I
have almost all Sinclair machines (except ZX80 and Sinclair PC) because I
haven't been selling them.
