I have several (100s) of Amstrad music rips (YM) from games. Is this a topic for this site? I am dreaming of a page where i/you can directly link / hear the great sounds from the great CPC games.

Any comments?

I'd like to hear that YM files.


Regarding where to put them, maybe it would be a nice idea to put them in their games' pages as an extra or maybe link a zip file from the page (if it exists) of the YM format spec.

Putting them in each game's page falls under another scope; while it'd be fantastic, it'd also be more time-consuming and would fall under the 'games' chapter, not the 'music' one.

We could arrange something! Is there an online YM player???

Hello,

I am looking for code rips of music from CPC games. Not .ym, not chip register dump.
As I ripped quite a lot of music from ZX-compatible computers, I encounter problems with CPC games.
A few questions that I have:
- do the music routines often CALL to ROM?
- is there any automated tracker music ripper?
- is there any tracker for PC that compiles music to the code (binary or disk, tape image)?

Would indeed being great to have all sounds, songs and so on at one page.  :)

 I have a project in my head related to this.

Sorry the double answer, but I forgot to add that my idea is about ym files. Now, you can hear them in cpc-power, but you need to search each game by hand...

You mean, including the player routine? Something that you just load on an emulator or real computer and plays the music?


If that's what you are asking, as far as I know, neither arkos, wyz or vortex do that.

It would be really cool just to have the whole lot available as a ZIP file, like a mini version of the HVSC!

Why play YM when I've carefully recorded 1600+ music directly from the CPC? There once was a CPC radio, but Grim doesn't seem interested in making it work again... Maybe someone who knows a bit about server/streaming could set up something ?


Don't forget that YM is not that simple to generate (what about samples, ripping music from demos, etc.).

There are about 400 songs from CPC demos in AYGOR (link)
and just a few from games. In the most of the demo music the playing time is undefined yet and no credits to the authors.
It will be always downloadable as one .zip file

All of the music is in the .ay format.
It is planned to develop this format to support even more than ZX & CPC music.
This format, with some minor updates, may support more machines with Z80+AY/YM onboard.
The hardware requirements (Z80, AY and interrupt frequency, output ports) will be defined in the file header.
That's why code rips (player routine + music data) are needed to play samples and other non-interrupt based sounds.

Hm that'd be an interesting thing to have on the wiki... I'm willing to implement it if someone can develop it :)

Maybe SHOUTcast could do this job. There's a freeware version. I never used Radio software though.

I don't want to be too pessimistic here, but for me it's Yet Another CPC-Radio.

I remember many other streams with 24h CPC music, which disappeared quickly in the past...

CPCScene, PushNPop, etc...

But I hope you have fun and your stream will resist for years.

May the force of neverending traffic be with you ;-)

Oh, and PM me, if you like that I add your stream into JavaCPC's Desktop...

at the moment we are testing software and hardware to work permanent with the filebase and streaming servers.

It is just the basic setup. CPC is in the other room :-)
