About Remix64

Hello, and welcome to Remix64.com. If you're here, you will probably be a fan of Commodore 64 and Amiga music, and more specifically, the remixes of that music into modern forms.

As you know, the Commodore 64 and Amiga computers had great soundchips. And, importantly, great musical talents that pushed these machines to their limits to create more evocative soundtracks than had ever been heard before.

This site is a portal to the surprisingly unified world of Commodore music remixing and music, containing news, reviews, charts and chat, and this file is your guide to the scene we love.

Here is your friendly guide to Remix64.com, and remixing in general.

How may we help you?
