Windows/Linux/Mac OS: Ami Sampler 0.7
As the name suggests, "Ami Sampler" is a VSTi 8-bit sampler that is intended to come close to its Amiga role models on other systems and thus combine this nostalgia with modern digital audio workstations. The range of functions therefore also includes replicas of the 4.4 kHz 6 dB/octave low-pass filter of the Amiga 500 and the 3.1 kHz 12 dB/octave low-pass filter of the Amigas 500 and 1200 as well as a "Paula switch".

The latter is inspired by the custom chip's limitation of only being able to pan hard left or hard right, which allows the Amiga to produce unique wide-sounding pads when multiple channels play the same sample as a chord. The Paula switch creates a similar affect by alternating the pan for each note played by the sample; almost like an autopan except the notes are sustained instead of shifting back and forth. When in "Paula mode", the channel pan control becomes a stereo width from -100 wide to +100 wide; when in Mono mode, "Paula" is disabled since the effect is for chords. (snx)

Gopher client: Gopherized
As the name suggests, Fabio 'Allanon' Falcucci's "Gopherized" is a client for the Gopher network protocol. As a special feature compared to other Amiga programs, it automatically scans the pages saved as bookmarks for updates.

After a test phase of this preliminary version, the final version 1.0 of this AMOS program will be published together with the source code. (snx)

Grind: Progress in development of a new Doom clone
Grind is a first-person shooter (FPS) currently in development for the Amiga, which should even be able to run on small Amigas, appears extremely smooth in the preview videos shown and makes you want to try out more. The game is being developed with the so-called Dread Engine (amiga-news.de reported). Tsak, one of the developers of Grind, recently announced news in the EAB forum:

Grind has not only been enhanced with two new music tracks for menus and in-game, composed by Tsak and newly joined Christoffer Magdalus, but has also achieved key development milestones. These include improved particle effects for blood and explosions and the full implementation of the arsenal of weapons, with the secondary weapon being triggered with the right mouse button as known from other FPS shooters.

For those interested, a playable demo and further information are available on the Patreon page of Grind. For those who want to dig deeper into the development, the official Discord server offers a platform for discussions and updates directly from the developers. Grind will be commercially distributed after its completion. (nba)
