Hi folx,

Just a quick update to let you know I'll be working on the latest episode of OMAHM this weekend. Episode #20 will be 30 Years of the Commodore 64 - A Symphonic Celebration and will feature 14 orchestral / symphonic C64 remixes. It's gonna be an 80 minute monster of a show! :D

Thanks again for all your suggestions - quite a few of them made them into the show! :cheers:

Would you be so good as to publish a link old boy?

And is the show live or will a recording be online?

The show won't be available for a few weeks yet as I've only done a rough-cut at this stage ... This will be followed by a couple of weeks of tweaking, adding, changing and general fiddling until I reckon it all sounds just right.

In the meantime, you can grab the other shows from here:-

I'll let you know when episode #20 is online. :)

One more vote for Glyns Firelord. Despite some minor quirks it was one of the first really good symphonic remixes I heard and there is just something special to it, something emotional I haven't really heard since then. Nothing has topped that remix even if current sound libraries makes the quality way better, the soul of a song is hard to create. And I think he made it in Fruity Loops with a bunch of samples.

Don't have a particular fav but it annoys me when certian people have a go at a track that sounds good and mark it down because its uses synthetic brass. I listened to a lot of recent commercial releases and they contain artifical brass. If it sounds ok then use them I can't see what the problem is.
