about new beat  
New Beat
New Beat started out as a group of three guys from Falun, Sweden with a passion for programming the Atari 16bit series of computers in the late 80's. These people were Daniel Hedberg, Thomas Bergström and Anders Olsson. A few years down the road Robert Cooke from Oklahoma, USA joined us.

What we do today
We still keep in touch and get together once in a while to talk about the goood 'ol days. Robert works as a computer technician for Mentor Computers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA. Anders lives and works outside Stockholm, Sweden. Daniel works as a software engineer for Wolfram Research in Linköping, Sweden, and Thomas is located in Gävle, Sweden, where he works for Syntronic.

The past and the future
Over the years we have worked on many projects for the Atari 16bit and 32bit series of computers. While most of these projects were successfully finished, some were abandoned, and a few of them are still in progress. Click on productions in the menu to the left to download any of our software.

To say that New Beat is still active would be a bit of a lie. With that said, we do still write some code on rare occasions, and once in a while we even experience periods of high activity and actually release stuff. Click here to find out more about what we work on.

The nostalgic demo evening
In the summer of 2001 New Beat organized a private little nostalgic evening, watching old demos and drinking beer. Computers featured at this highly unforgettable moment were a couple of Atari 1040 STFM computers, two Atari Falcon030 computers (one of them equipped with the Nemesis accelerator), one Atari 1040 STe (which at a closer examination actually turned out to be a STFM), one Amiga 500 and of course an Amiga 1200 (equipped with a MC68030 at 50MHz and 32Mb FAST-RAM). That is a total of seven computers, pretty impressive huh? Three of these computers were bought only to be used for this evening.
