Yes it is a good article.  The author approached the Atari Forum community last year in preparation for the article:

The other articles, including others of iconic music machines are also really interesting.

Based on what I recall, I think Tangerine Dream used an Atari ST for the songs they did for films like Risky Business.

 

I also recall that Atari had setup multiple ST's at some computer show in the late 1980's, running Midi Maze in multi-player mode.

Pretty sure that Midi Maze was run at *multiple* shows and gatherings. Just sayin'.  :)
