Yesterday we reported about Poke -1,170's Airwaves #4, a one hour radioshow on the local Dutch radiostation Enschede FM, broadcast streaming on the internet over here and also available as a large MP3 file over here. This episode was completely about our beloved MSX computer system and therefore is a worthy first nominee to the second MSX in the Media Challenge.

Did you get or spot MSX in the media? Let us know by sending a mail to msxmedia@msx.org and we'll add it to the list of nominees.

Hey thanx Smile quite a bit of work, but thanx to many people here (including snout) it got assembled. Thanx for all the advice and sending me the info and specs that are included in the FAQ here. Thanx to laurens for his patience and checking Smile Will do another one in 2005, dunno if it should be next month directly (as I stated), but probably februari or so? I thought of maybe doing some compo where people could be challenged to write a drum & bass,electro,ambient,techno or acid track...using fm-pac,scc or/and/or/and PSG...
I'll post the quetsion at VORC too, best 3 (or ehh more depending on how many people are participating) will be played in that show then ! Bandwagon realy got me hooked, they are doing awesome experimental broken beat IDM d&b style stuff with just the PSG...on a normal msx I suppose ^^

by the way (and I know it ain't proper to tell about it here)... anyone interested in the c64 disk image of the x 2004 that was held in Hengelo this year? It contains 10 tracks or so,pushing the sid chip to the limits, including jeroen tel ( a good friend of mine) and drax and some awesome other productions...
Just if you are a fan of chiptune music you shouldn't miss out on it, awesome stuff... for those who fancy the AY soundchip: http://ayriders.zxdemo.org/mp3.html check that out, our brothers in sound ! the x-agon stuff is amazing !!!!

Interesting to see that no non-game music was played and that AFAIk the music from the winner of the megapoll (legend of heroes, right?) was not played either...

manuel,
1. this edition focused on PSG and SCC commercial music, amateur and FM-music will be in the next issue.
2. remember that this is a personal selection of poke.

True,a personal selection,but indeed I looked at what people offered on the poll, following the popularity of some games and for some input on the psg parts too ! Still,the tracks I picked from games were the ones that i liked the best haha !

eh and indeed, the demo and amateur stuf will follow...I thought to do it straight after this one, but it might be cool to do that little psg/scc/fm-pac compo (see another post here somewhere) write an electro/acid/ambient/d&b track,and best 3 (or how much there will be) will be played on the next msx episode. Since it would be a bit soon to do that in januari (deadline for people would be too quick),and to see wether or not people are interested anyway,i'll skip one month and do it in febrauri.
In that episode I will definately play powerrun theme,some impact shizzle and bandwagon,and whatever up to date shite I can find ^_^

For some reason I hate moonsound hahah ^^ sounds too polished and like preset keyboards from yamaha (the dreaded PSR series)...and it ain't officially part of the msx standard or?.... oh shoot me Smile
Now I did it...the holy moonsound got dissed Wink
