Upload your CPC music
Help us to increase the music collection of RolandRadio. A lot of music from games and demos are missing in our database and maybe you have them on your hard disk or want to record some fresh music from your Amstrad CPC.
We are not interested in music from other computer systems, no matter how cool and chippy they are.

How shall my files look like?
That's really important, because we have to name the files correct for our databases.
We user the "-" as a divider between artist and title for faster import to our database. So please avoid using the "-"-character more than once in your filename. Please name your files based on this scheme:
Name of Artist - Title of music or game (Level) (Additional Informations).ext
Jonathan Dunn - Operation Thunderbolt (Game Over (Second Sound)).mp3
Kangaroo MusiQue - HJT-Theme (Mini Meeting Demo (Crittersoap was drunk on Sunday afternoon)).mp3
Jonathan Dunn - Unknown title.mp3
Unknown artist - Moon Buggy (Main theme).mp3 .
.txt-File with the same filename as the music file to describe it in detail. These can be any additional Informations, anctodes, things that should be interesting for the community of RolandRadio listeners.
Which sound formats and quality is accepted?
To reach the wanted quality of the streams we render the tunes on the fly by our radio automation software. Therefore your uploaded sound files do not need to have the same format and quality aus our provided streams.
Quality of the sound files should be minimum 128 kBit/s 44KHz or higher regardless which format is used. We love high quality! So please send us the best files you have. We do accept FLAC and other lossless formats as long as the format is not DRM-protected. So you are welcome to send us huge files.
Will i get some informations if my sounds are added to RolandRadio?
No, sorry. As new songs are played more often than older songs, you should notice your audio submissions on the radio stream or on the Playlist or the Artists page.
