First of all, Tas, my apologies if you found my "smoking" comment insulting, that was not my intention at all, of course. I used the expression not in the literal sense. Also, tolerating opinions is a two-way road: it also means people should tolerate opinions of their opinions. :) (Which you actual...

All those people who voted "outstanding" for this remix on RKO should stand up and explain their vote to me. Or at least they should listen to ONE symphonic piece played by a REAL orchestra before casting their vote. No offense, Miguel, I think the arrangement is spot on, but at some points I found ...

Wanted: surround SID remix

After listening to Jarre's " Aero " and Bjorn Lynne's " Soothe " I thought: why not have a SID remix in 5.1 surround? These days programs like Cakewalk Sonar 4 Producer Edition have built-in surround editing capabilities. You don't even have to have expensive Dolby or DTS encoders for DVD distributi...

As long as we're splitting hair... :lol:

Looking at the playlist, I would've finished the night with PPOT. I think in this concert they were the "main act", the rest were "supporting bands" (as good as they were). It was a bit anticlimactic to end with SID80s.

Well, I'd really appreciate a copy. I wouldn't want it for anything else but personal enjoyment, either. Chris knows very well that I'll buy the DVD, regardless. I think I bought everything else from the C64audio shop. :) Besides, the audio feed was pretty low quality. I just want to hear the rest, ...

BIT Live 2004 rocked - even over the airs

Well, it's really unfortunate that I couldn't go to BIT Live this year. Last year's mad weekend dash from Las Vegas to Brighton and back in just 3.5 days was a bit too tiring for me (and I was back at work the next day!), not to mention that this year my vacation time is going to be used up for some...

Recording of BIT Live 2004 live feed?

Did anybody record the live Slaygon radio feed from BIT Live 2004? I missed the first half of it. :cry:

I know it's gonna be on DVD, too, but it'd be nice to have the raw live performance.

N-Joy's Stormlord

I am waaaay behind with listening to C64 remixes (I have RKO downloads in my queue dating back to April 2003!), but today I did a quick "spot-check" of some remixes and I found this: N-Joy's Stormlord remix. It is TOTALLY AWESOME!!!! Now, do the lyrics mean anything in Italian, or is it just gibberi...

Did they cut between us and the video-screen in the back? We haven't seen the live-feed yet.. We did use quite some time on the (new) background videos :) Yes, they did show the video screen a generous amount of times. Again, all I can say is that the director of the broadcast did a superb job. Oh,...

you know best what the remix should sound like..
I'd love to, but I lack the skills and the time.

But I may commission Reyn Ouwehand to do it for me. :D

Lagerfeldt's version

Well, I just listened to Lagerfeldt's version of "Sweet" - and I am still waiting for the "ultimate" cover of this tune. In spirit, Lagerfeldt's version is much closer to the original's than Mahoney and Schneider's. I have no problem with the vocals, either, although the vocoder/pitch-corrector was ...

There's a subset of people who think we as a community are getting hung up on technical aspects (both sonically and musically), and aren't producing tunes any more which give them solid nostalgic happy feelings. I think this is starting to become the real crux of some of the issues I'm having with ...

Re: Sweet

Pex, Lala. I perfectly understand your emotions. I am deeply sorry for having tripped on your toes this time. Just like I don't feel the need to apologize for my emotions and opinions, there's really no need for you to apologize for tripping on my toes, either. You can't please everybody every time,...
