This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I m reviewing three different Flash memory options for our beloved Amiga 600 and Amiga 1200 Computers. The traditional CF card interface, a Disk On Module or DOM, and a really cool 2.5" SSD IDE Hard Drive! Who is the fastest? Tune in to find out! Pick up a DOM from Amazon, or even better: https://www.amigaonthelake.com The SSD IDE Drives are currently available on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/KingSpec-2-5-inch-Solid-SM2236-Controller/dp/B008RVN97A/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=2.5+SSD+IDE&qid=1592634664&sr=8-5 Pick up an awesome CF to IDE connector from https://www.retroready.one

Episode 68 - AGA Blaster Video Player Review and Tutorial
This week I am reviewing and providing a tutorial on setup of the awesome AGABlaster software for the Amiga. This software can create a 256 color AGA CDXL file that plays back wonderfully on your AGA Amiga. I walk you thru a bit of background on the technology, how to set it up in Windows 10 using the Ubuntu Linux Terminal, and how to create and play back the incredible videos! Markus Schordan created this fantastic software.

Episode 67 - Video Toaster Adventures Part 1
This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am starting on my NewTek Video Toaster Tutorial series. We learn a bit about the Video Toasters history and how to set it up, and play with some fun effects and dabble in Toasterpaint and the Character Generator. I am recording this to OBS this week so I can simultaneously display the Preview and Main Video Toaster screens, as well as a view of the Video Toaster main screen. My Capture card is causing a second or two delay on the main screen. I will try to find a way around that for the next video.
