Silo 64 CD/MP3 Soundtrack:
This is the soundtrack to the post nuke C64 / 128 action game Silo 64. The songs form a mix of rock guitars, elektro beats, electric bass, analogue synths, c64 chip music make this soundtrack truly RAD!
The album features a SID 8580 Version of "fallout in the Wasteland" by none other than Richard Bayliss of "The New Dimension"! The soundtrack also features devastating 8 bit digitized drum loops with SID chip creator Bob Yannes' Ensoniq ES5503 chip!

To establish connections to your remix projects, log in to "My Remix64" and follow the instructions at the "My Connections" page.
The new structure is represented by new URLs. Here are a few examples:
The "Act" URL
It represents the name under which a person or a band has released remixes. It lists all the releases, and the members involved.
The "Member" URL
Here you'll find your new Remix64 member profile page. It now shows a list of all remix projects you have worked on, and a list of all your project's releases.
The "Track" URL
This is the good old remix info page.
The old URLs will still work and forward to the proper new location, so there's no immediate need to update your links.
We also have a revamped member directory.
