The Sid Tunes Cover CD question.

Post by Brilad » Tue Jun 01, 2010 4:28 pm

Hello everyone I wonder if I could ask for some info?

It concerns the CD from I think Vol 1 of RG, with some Sid music on it. I am not sure if this was a DVD cover disc with other stuff on eg games and software or if it was just an audio CD.

I converted it to MP3, in a rush and in time honoured style did not input the track names.

If anyone can give me a tracklist that would be great but really I just want to know what track 4 is, I love it. Takes me back etc etc!!

thanks in advance

I got a CDROM a few years ago, C64 classix it was called, it came with a basic emulator, a few thousand games - and if I remember correctly, thousands of SID tunes!, I think I paid £4.99 for it from HMV, not a bad buy all in all.

I've got the C64 Classix CD. Rampant piracy from HMV, but it has some good stuff on it.

As for SIDs, all you need do is download the High Voltage SID Collection.

Currently, HSVC stands at over 37000 SIDs in a single 73Mb download, which includes all the good well known stuff in a well organised format. Isn't broadband great? I remember waiting hours for that to download on dial-up, now its yours in a couple of minutes.

Both actually originated from the same source, the High Voltage CDs were pared down a little for C64 Classix and leant their name to the HVSC - i've got the original (badly bugged) High Voltage CD and the update knocking around... erm, somewhere. =-)

I remember downloading SIDs on our old college network in the 1990s. The connection must have been steam-powered, because even downloads of documents a few KB in size took a few seconds.

Many thanks for the info. I seem to have a blast with SID tunes now and again.

Even thoough I had a Speccy, I couldn't be bothered hating the opposition and used to love my brother-in-law's C64 and marvel at his discs crammed full of games, it was always the cracks and loaders I liked more than the games.

Will update my tracklist now!

:D

University networks did tend to be a bit quick... I was getting almost today's broadband speeds while studying in the mid 90s! Sometimes up to 1MB per second at times...
