Open Source

Incidentally, as an aside, I will soon be releasing many of the source files behind the CD tracks for general enjoyment and remixing, as well as MIDI and WAVs, as part of the repositioning of C64Audio.com. So although there will be a couple of strings attached (ask permission before using in commerc...

Facts

<<< That I seriously doubt. How many remixes that are on RKO have been featured on a CD after it's "RKO release"? Close to none! >>> If something is released on CD after it's been "talentspotted" on RKO, then it tends to have been completely rerecorded for CD (like O2's Zoids or "Galway is God" for ...

Copyright

1) A tune is "copyrighted" the moment it's created 2) If you want to prove someone ripped off your piece, you have to show that (a) you wrote it first, and (b) that the person who ripped it off could possibly have got it. 3) STIM won't help: they're only interested in giving you royalties if your pi...

No problem

<<< 2) if you don't like orchestral for example, then because you don't like that style you'd miss out on some fabulous remixes, say for example Glyn's Firelord. >>> Who cares if some closed-minded bozo misses out? The main difficulty will be in categorising the things. Probably best to categorise t...

Delta

> Chris Abbott dared to remix it
Twice, in fact! One on RKO (mystified by the low rating, but hey..) and BIT 3 (much better) with Boz.

What's missing is any other interpretations: all the versions so far have been pretty similar in style and aim.

Hmm...

I'm against setting a minimum rate larger than 128kbps. People should be encouraged to use higher, but I'm not convinced that the actual extra joy people would get from it would justify the extra file size.

Um..

First off, the start of an Amiga Remix scene infrastructure is a long overdue idea. Well done! But the c64 remix scene evolved around the c64rmx group. RKO didn't exist before people got together and someone voluntered to create a website. That's not right: the remix scene started on the C64, then o...

I'd have hoped my editorial this month would have also helped from a stylistic point of view!

Rejection

Hi Rob, Even though I'm a member of said RKO jury, I'm afraid this time I didn't even get to hear the remixes, since I've been too busy to visit the RKO queue this time. Have you got a URL you can put them on temporarily? I missed voting on Dor-X's too. I gotta visit more often before Jan efficientl...

Ermy squirmy

It depends on the quality of the reverb, really. If you've got a great hall reverb then (a) it will take account of the stereo positioning of the instruments, and (b) it won't make the sound muddy. If you're sitting in an audience in a concert hall then the difference in reverb between the different...

Postage charges

Ironically it may be cheaper to send from England to Germany than from Germany to Germany! A CD's postage cost is generally about £1.50 on the price of the CD, and no more than £2 for one CD. This compares very well to Amazon.co.uk sending to the UK! Try processing an order through the shop, a...

Or...

... or you could go to our minisite at http://c64audio.valuehost.co.uk/edge where we've made available the full-length Karma64 version of Monty on the Run free of charge to illustrate the genius of Rob Hubbard (and in the hope that it will provoke a CD sale or two).

@Chris Abbott: Yes, but is most the "Monty on the run" Hughscore Sound, i mean the Gamemusik. Till now i don't found on RKO an Monty Game Sound Maybe you should probably support us and buy a CD? Back in Time 1 (with Monty 97) is quite cheap at the moment, and the BIT 3 CD-ROM is even cheaper, and h...
