Episode #12 - Now in 320kbps!

On public demand, I've started encoding the podcast in 320kbps!

Also the iTunes link is fixed. Updating the podcast from iTunes is possible now. Yay!

I have to edit the XML-file myself though because FeedBurner doesn't support mp3-files hosted on a ftp-server. :-(
This means for the non-iTunes users the FeedBurner RSS-feed is unusable for automatic podcast download. So try to use this RSS-feed instead.

Anyway, thank you all for supporting this podcast!

Here it goes...


Lou Gray - Yakki Da (1988)
Metal - Sayonara (1990)
Jeff - Commodore 64 (2004)
Fanta - Desert Dream Part 2 (2007)
Aleksi Eeben - One For Reed (2006)
Fred Gray - Mutants (1987)
Laxity - Laxace (1987/88)
Orcan - A Demo Bit (1996)
Jammer - Latex Sensations (2004)
Reyn Ouwehand - Dutch Breeze, FLI Scroll part (1991)

Jeroen Tel - Sonic Soul (2006)

Download the Podcast!
Download the cue-sheet.

EDIT 27-5-2007: Re-recorded Fanta's tune with a real C64 equipped with a 8580 SID instead of using the HardSID (also with a 8580).
Mp3-file is updated. You might wanna download it again... if you wish.

nice selection of tunes like always BUT: the melody from 0:47 in desert dream part II is totally fucked up with stucks! should run on 8580 smoothly. update possible?

Hey scout,

thanks for another great episode! ;)

Although I had some problems with your cue sheet - it wont't play in Foobar2000 and also the track index times were wrong (guess because CDDA uses 75 frames per second). I recreated the cue sheet:


I'm also having problems with the iTunes playlist (it couldn't find the mp3s). Can iTunes really play files from ftp?

Great podcast, as always, scout

BUT please dont use 320kbps mp3, i have 3 portable mp3 players, and all suck at playing that high bitrate!
besides, such high bitrates makes mp3 a bit pointless...

Nice to have them in 320kbps now!
Any chance of re-posting the JT liveset in 320kbps?
Also the version on 8bit mayhem seems a little to loud (recorder over 100% volume)....

I've just stumbled onto this site after looking through various SID websites and I think it is one of the best. Thanks for putting so much effort into these podcasts, and i hope you can keep it at 320 kbps. However if there are those whose media player can't handle it 192 kbps is a fair compromise.

Again sir, I appreciate your hard work.
