Here in Europe, C64 is still kicking hard!

I still have mine, and it still kicks some serious butt with the Kawasaki Synth loaded! 8)

The SID chip was born to do Techno. Run the output through a little studio processing to get rid of some of the hiss and add a little delay and you're right up there with the best of the neo-industrial post wave.

Also  lot less expensive than trying to hunt down vintage Korg stuff. ;D

Thanks for the link. :Thmbsup:

That's pretty cute :)

I wonder how many music producers use something like the HardSID, though? MOS-6581 :-*

Heh. That reminded me about few thousands of SID files which I removed from my HDD recently (because of gathering the dust). Now I wish I didn't ;)

That's a shame. There are SID emulators that can play them. Oh well...what's gone is gone. :eusa_boohoo:

OMG! What an awesome find! And here I was thinking how cool it would be if I resurrected my 386-20 and loaded Wildcat BBS on it. Looks like I've been trumped before I even started. ;D

These guys bring back memories of the old Transactor crowd that were doing all kinds of amazing stuff in assembler with C64s way back when.

Thanks kartal! :Thmbsup: :Thmbsup:

I even have in_sid.dll in my player but I thought I will never miss them.

And something even more impressive... wonder how demos do look today? Well, look no futher, here's pretty nice demo from Booze Design (Released at X'2008 not so long time ago)... This ... is .... ART!

And remember... it's still basic C64 with 1 floppy drive... no expansions.

iirc we will have a c64 party in January on board our space station, however this has not been booked. There have been talks and general agreement on both sides, but no deal has been struck yet.

I think it'll happen though. So if you are in Berlin in January, check our calendar to look for this party.

I'll be there myself because I like c64 music (chiptunes in general).
