Mark Visser (Misser) passed away

Misser

On the 22nd of August Mark Visser (alias Misser / Mr.Mad) unexpectedly passed away. As a coder and cracker was responsible for numerous demo's and cracks and was loved by many in the C64 scene as a cuddly, crazy and happy Dutchie. He will be sorely missed. A website has been created in his memory where you can express your condolences or leave any message you wish.

Everything will be printed and personally handed to his family.

Bleep and Destroy by Vincenzo feat. NecroPolo

8-bit bleeps meet crushing metal guitars, synthesizer sounds and love for oldschool computers. These ingredients required to cook on high temperature together and the result is some fine sid-rock,  for the fans of chip'n'roll everywhere!

Subzero's C64 Podcasts to Return!!

Subzero Subzeros C64 Podcasts To Return

After a hiatus of almost 7 years Subzero is bringing back his c64 podcasts!!

 

The podcasts that begun back in 2007 ran for just over a year, with 36 shows being released. And now, after a long rest he's decided to bring them back!

 

Promising to be as true to the original format as before, with special 'themed' shows, Subzero hopes he can bring the listeners back.

 

Podcast no.40 'The Ocean Wave' is due for release in late february/early march and will focus on an array of music from games released by OCEAN software.

Listening Recommendation
 Firelord - Symphonic
Arranged by Glyn R Brown


How glyn managed to make this awesome rendition of firelord sound so good in fruityloops is beyond me! but the facts say it for themselves, this was created in fruityloops using only average quality samples. But the key thing here is glyn's ability for music just shines through!

The point is that i doubt glyn could ever do better than this in this current configuration. So what happens now, he goes and buy's himself a monster keyboard and the future of glyn is even brighter... The future's bright, the futures Brown :-)

 Synth Sample 1
Arranged by Pirx


This Track seems to be a 1:1 MIDI-Rip of Jogeir Liljedahl\'s Version of the Stationary Ark Soundtrack. Too similar, too recognizable, too much the same instrumentation. Too cheap to be true. Sorry, laddy!

RAKBIT

by NecroPolo

NecroPolo has produced a stunning album which is built on a vintage prog-sound: from hard as nails to Rhodes-heaven, NecroPolo has got beneath the skin of the pieces and created something which is totally authentic to their spirit.
As if that wasn't enough, this album features the first ever C64-executable album cover, complete with classic scrolltext and the original SIDs that appear on the album, in one PRG!
And if THAT wasn't enough, this demo contains the first ever usage of a revolutionary new SID encoding format which enables any complexity of SID to be played back with minimal raster time, no matter how complex the player! Named SIDRIP, this routine was produced by Hermit specially for this demo, because pieces such as Scoll Machine or Rimrunner needed to feature in this demo, and their players were far too difficult to squeeze into a one-file demo.
