Best CPC Music - Games & Demos?
« on: 10:46, 17 July 19 »
Hi All,

I'm hoping to assemble a playlist of the best CPC tunes (including games and demoscene productions) for the next episode of my podcast, Bitstream.

There's such a huge back catalogue - any suggestions would be very welcome!

Ideally these need to sound awesome now in their own right - as many listeners won't be CPC fans so lack the required CPC nostalgia gene :D

I'll of course credit suggestions / usernames in the show :)


Thanks,


Steve (TCM/Slipstream)

I'd vote for BSC's Space Debris conversion.

Oh I have plenty here from games past.

Most of the tunes from Platoon
North Star
Hydrofool
Netherworld
Robocop
Rasterscan
Zynaps
Aliens (eventhough it's quite short)
Prehistorik II
Beyond The Ice Palace
Dizzy
Ghosts N Goblins (Elite version)
Bounder


Thats off the top of my head.

Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1GB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Agent X II - Tim Follin is awesome.  Shame he didn't do all that many Amstrad games.

Have a look at Nightshift, a great music demo, especially the first track.

Mcklain - I've heard it all before
That's right! How could I forget McKlain. Probably my favorite recent musician on the Amstrad.
This is a feast for the ears:

Thanks again!  That's more than enough for a half hour show - but I will revisit this again in the future for a CPC Part 2 :)

I have to say, I love this thread! I’m a big Amstrad music fan and I have a bunch of music converted to mp3 to listen to it any time. This thread has given me new leads on new cool music that I didn’t know about. Thanks!!

Lot's of good tunes already, so I'm hardpressed to find anything not already mentioned:

Dragon's Lair 2 (the title screen melody, the boat level)
Black Mesa Transit Announcement System:
"Work safe, work smart. Your future depends on it."

Does anyone know if all these tunes are available from a central resource or are they located on different sites?
