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?
So 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!
It is the summary for the Amstrad CPC for the month of April at mag.mo5.com and Roland Radio is mentioned there. We get a lot of hits from there. But we have never heard of mag.mo5.com before. Whatever.
One month ago, right before the revision easterparty, we started streaming Amstrad CPC tunes to the world. Look how far we got in 30 days. Isn’t that great? We hope you enjoy listening to our radio station as much as we do in making it.
We know – nobody on the internet likes the GEMA, especially the germans. And also nobody really wants to pay for music. But as we are streaming music from great artists of the Amstrad CPC and home computer era and as we are musicians on our own we understand the need of getting paid for the things you do. That’s why we registered Roland Radio today at GEMA and we are proud of that. Also our station is located in Germany, so we should fulfill the german laws. 🙂
One good thing about the GEMA registration: Now we can also play every GEMA registered artist, which is great for our upcoming shows we are working on.
The App is really dumb 🙂 It plays the radio. Thats it. What we want to add is the artist and title info, the current amount of listeners and a lot more. but this will take some time. It’s fun to code. Even if you are a newbie 🙂
