5 days ago we started the MRC Airwaves Challenge. With more than 4 weeks to go until the deadline, Meits of Near Dark already sent us the first entry to this challenge: A Winter's Tale. It's a nice interpretation of the quite abstract theme of the challenge (modern music), made in Moonblaster Stereo. Meits also released an mp3 of the song, to which you can listen over here.

By joining the MRC Airwaves Challenge you can not only get eternal fame by getting your music published on the MRC, if you are the winner of the challenge, you will also get some cool airplay on a retrocomputing music show aired on the Dutch radio-station Enschede FM. After the broadcast, the show will become available on the internet, thus getting a lot of attention all over the world. Possibly more entries than only the winner of the challenge wil be aired on poke -1,170's Airwaves show. So, show your music skills to the MSX community and send your entries before February 28th, 2005, 23:59 to Good luck!

Ow yes, for the recording person ( *waves @ snøut* )... I hope you got your fm-pac and music module balanced just like I got them Wink and eh, the tune is (as always) composed on 50Hz...

@ Ulv_: Didin't do anything with own voices... It's too long ago since I played around in Moonblaster 1.4 and I had to keep an eye on the FM-PAC as well. I wanted the pac and mod to sound about the same, so not a tune for just mod with pac as bassy support... The pac was the bottleneck in the soundcolour, as well as my vanished experience with the pac/mod combo...
