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.

Listening Recommendation
 Orchestral Sequence
Arranged by moog (Sebastian Bachliñski)


Yes, I have to admit that this is fantastic. Although it does not cover my preferred sid as well as my preferred style of remixing. But moog just did everything right:
First of all he absolutely catched the serene mood of the sid and increased it dramatically. Then the tune gets the dynamic kick it needs when the rhythm section comes in - so a great curve of intensity builds up and comes down in the end again. What I especially like about this is that it feels as epic and emotional as a film score without trying to copy the sound of a real orchestra (what most of the times fails when using samples anyway).
Technically flawless. Perfect choice of sounds.
Nuff said. :-)

 Pool Party (FN mix)
Arranged by Xenox


Unfortunately I can\'t really give this much credit points. Anyone can use SID2MIDI, but the important thing is (and is what is most noticeable) is when the arranger doesn\'t double-check the original SID to ensure that all the notes are correct. The program is a really good way to capture the notes, but it doesn\'t handle slides / glides at all, hence if a song uses them and the notes ain\'t corrected, it can ruin your cover.

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.
