v58 of the High Voltage SID Collection has been released by the HVSC Team. The collection now contains 43,116 SIDs. You can download the complete collection or use the web based search interface to browse and search the collection, as well as stream mp3/ogg recordings on demand. Note that the official page for the HVSC is at http://www.hvsc.de.
The Atari SAP Music Archive was also recently updated to v3.6 with 315 new tunes (4630 in total). The main site for the Atari SAP Music archive is at http://asma.atari.org/, however we offer an alternative web interface at ExoticA that allows to search and download recordings from the collection (as ogg or mp3) over at the ASMA Search page. There was a v3.5 out previously that we missed, and it looks as though our download page got forgotten too, as it linked to a very old version. This is now all fixed.
The UnExoticA music collection got a small update with some composer and comment corrections. Thanks to those who submitted fixes. There is still lots of stuff outstanding, and the collection has not had much love over the last few years. Maybe XtC and Kyzer will come back to help in 2013 :)
Just under a week ago Allister Brimble’s kickstarter album project The Amiga Works got funded, with 524 backers bringing in a total of £18,848. Congratulations Allister! It was also announced that Allister and Chris Huelsbeck would both be remixing one track on each others albums, which I look forward to hearing.
