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.

Reviews

Listening Recommendation
 Thrust
Arranged by Boz


Extra-ordinary enhanced version of the sidtune, albeit straight-forward and with a few original SID samples in some important places where they are used for effects and percussions like pulse-modulation drums (which in my opinion was a good decision and results in a nostalgia bonus). The arranger has replaced and added enough to make this a 6:36 long enjoyable synth-track with a well-chosen set of sounds and instruments.

 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!

Project: Galway

Project Galway

by Martin Galway

Amazing project that gives you Martin Galway's C64 tunes recorded directly from his very own chip, as they were meant to be heard: with the most sensitive and well-balanced 6581 filter ever heard. Highlights of this CD include the previously-unhead music from Street Hawk, and the extraordinary sensitivity of his Wizball soundtrack. Alistair "Boz" Bowness imported Martin's own C128D and wrote his own cross-assembler for this. If you care about the quality of the SID going into your ears: add this to your collection.
