ftp.cpcszene.de is online again

some bad hackers had entered our so loved ftp.cpcszene.de – after Nilquader died in august last year, nobody administrated the server. So it got messed up and we now have taken ftp.cpcszene.de and built it up again from a backup. Took some time to get the 44 GigaBytes of CPC-Stuff up again. But now its back again: ftp://ftp.cpcszene.de

Merry Christmas to all Amstrad-CPC-Users

Merry Christmas, Amstrad-Users!

It’s the 24th of December 2015 and you shall sit at (or under) the tree with your family 🙂 Or listen to Roland Radio – that’s an alternative to everything 🙂

See you in 2016, maybe at the Easterparty in Saarbrucken.

New radio greeting from The Oliver Twins

You know Dizzy? Then you know The Oliver Twins 🙂 Philip and Andrew Oliver were so kind and recorded a radio greeting for our little Amstrad CPC chiptune station. We are very proud and happy to have them on our jingle list now. If you want to know what the Oliver Twins are doing these days, check out their YouTube-Channel and follow them on Twitter

We should do a Dizzy special on Roland Radio i think 🙂

Ythcal sent us his rdio greetings a few months ago and today we have get them done. These 8-bit-meetings are very productive at least. So right after the Xzentrix 2015 in Germany we added a few new tunes and jingles too. Enjoy:

New radio greeting from “Captain”

You may know Captain from the Space Debris song BSC converted from the Amiga. This song is very famous and Markus “Captain” Kaarlonen well known for a lot of good Amiga tunes he did in the 90s. He sent us his radio greeting right from his holidays after he toured with his band “Poets of the Fall”. We are very happy about the radio greeting and here it is:

Nilquader passed away yesterday

On August 23rd Nilquader passed away at 11:55 o’clock. I will never forget him. He was also part oft the CPC-group SPRING!

In 2008 we defined: “Two are a group”, but now 50% of SPRING! are gone.  Forever. And so SPRING! is dead too. But our projects hopefully stay: The MegaFlash NG and DP, Roman 2, Whacky Wit, RomWalk / MegaFlash Menu, CPCimon and a lot more in hardware, software, games, accessories and also Roland Radio. Nilquader loved to listen to the CPC tunes on Roland Radio and also during his stay in hospital we were able to play him some Roland Radio to entertain him a little bit.

My best friend died and so did a big part of me.

Chiptune versus Real – New Format on Roland Radio. Would you like it?

We are setting up a new format on Roland Radio called Chiptune versus Real.

Some of the chiptunes of the Amstrad CPC are based on film music, chart hits or classical music. So what we do on Roland Radio is playing the chiptune followed of the original. Enjoy this new format on rolandradio.net.

We plan to do this one hour weekly or maybe also one “chip vs. real”-set per hour. What do you think?

Here is the intro:

and the outro:

Our Radio Roland mascot in 3D

roland-finishedSo we did it today and finished our mascot to decorate our radio studio with it. Printing took about 9 hours for all the parts by using the lowest resolution of the 3D printer of 0.3mm. So we also printed some small ones. They are really cute and maybe we do some nice key rings for our fans? Do you want one? Comment!
