ZX Spectrum was in some ways similar to Amiga 500. Samples (digital sounds) were used in ZX games/demos since 80s. In 1992 appeared first tracker fully operating on samples (like Amiga 500) and it was called simply Sample-Tracker. It can play digital music with AY chip or Z80 chip (beeper) in both cases with 3 channels of AY sound (so-called ZX-MOD).

As You can see, not too much movement on da screen while playing: it's because for better quality of sound all CPU's powers (3,5 Mhz only!!) go for music-procedure.

However in 90s ZX Spectrum is the only 8-bit computer capable to show full-screen pictures and additional moving effects (like scrolls or analysers) while playing 3-channel digital music.

This is a tune from Flash Tracker Demo by Flash Inc, made for ZX Spectrum 48Kb with AY interface (also can work on Spectrum 128K of course).
