Amiga Music Preservation (AMP), a non profit association, is running the biggest and most comprehensive database ever about amiga music and amiga musicians. All the composers of the amiga deserve to be remembered and to have their work preserved. We tried all we could on our own but although it's growing all the time, now we seriously need you to help us one way or another.

And here we are. Yet another year has come and gone. 2013 was nice, but it's now 2014.

The usual "log" of what happened, here, follows:
7200+ musics added
~400 musics were updated
1100+ authors were added and/or updated
100+ groups were added and/or updated
50+ pics were added

News wise, Crown has made some appearances throughout the year and 2014 could see his come back Smiley. Curt Cool is lost somewhere in Australia. Nothing much to report for the others.

That's about it. Remains to wish you all a happy new year 2014, that, in the name of all AMP team.

 At last, demozoo is open to public !
 It still has rough edges, but it's already looking great. So, all the best to you, Menace, and your team for this nice looking project Smiley

 I'll try to follow what's happening.

PS: And, of course, linking musics from AMP is more than welcome. Should something be done on our end, please, tell me/us.

Well, here we are : 130.000 tracked musics are now registered on AMP.

This was made possible by the tireless contributors, on and off the headlights. To all, here's a renewed thanks for still feeding the beast Smiley.

More stuff to come, of course, as the todo list doesn't seem to diminish at all ... *geee*.
Special hello(s) to Independent and Axxy for the massive contributions.

The AMP team.
PS: in case of doubt, please send us any material anyway. We'll handle it.

23.05.2013 (18:45) - Modulez.org down - by Asle
Hi all,

 Darth Nefelim notified me about the unfortunate end of the great modulez.org site, that happened last month. I feel sorry such a respected, historic collection closes down. Still, a big thank you to its admins/users for the good dozen years of success.
 With that, here follows the end message as written by Yero:
Quote
Dear friends,

After more than ten years (2000-2013) providing a meeting point for musicians of the modscene, modulez.org has been closed down. During all this time the site has hosted more than 1400 artists, 4700 tunes, 4000 comments, 200 news and 100 forum topics, which prove the success of our community.

However, during the last four years the site has suffered from a severe decrease in activity, which follows the trend of other modscene and demoscene sites in general.

We hope that all you had a good time in modulez.org, and that you remember those times with fond Smiley

Finally, I want to thank the people who have worked hard first to build the site and then to maintain this site and the IRC channel active, specially to Herotyc, Likuid, sole, JosSs, Alpha C, DSteele, and Sergeeo, and also to Mityorn and Recena for the hosting at metamacro.com and scenesp, respectively.

23.04.2013 (16:03) - AMP Player app for iOS - by Crown
Our Finnish friend Aleksi Sitomaniemi has just released an AMP player APP for Apple OS (iPhone, etc.) which you can find here!

Here is a quote from Aleski: "I have created an iPhone application that connects to http://amp.dascene.net for doing composer/module searches. App is capable of downloading modules and playing them back (I'm using un4seen bass engine for playback, so supporting the most common formats, but not all of them). It started as a get-to-know iOS project when I was suddenly out of project in my job at spring, and was on hold for a couple of months while I had more time-demanding paid work to attend, but I'm pretty happy with current version and looking forward to releasing it to app store.

Thanks Aleksi. Btw looking forward to your AMP related get-to-know Android project.  Wink

04.04.2013 (01:36) - Rink A Dink Redux - music - by Asle
Hi,

 I'm happy to report that Paradroid shared the original musics that are featured in the aforementioned demo. Those are the three first musics in today's report. In the demo, those are in P61A format.
 While I'm overwhelmed with gratitude for Paradroid's move, I wish originals musics were shared more commonly, along with releases.

 Please, coders, musicians, help us collecting original material Smiley

Cheers
Sylvain

PS: the demo is here (and on pouet as well)

04.03.2013 (16:54) - Tecon interview - by Asle
A more mundane news. Tecon has contacted me (Asle) and has been kind enough to answer to a few questions. His interview is now available for reading here.

Huge thanks for the interview (and the original of MOD.offworld !).

All

 Monty reshaped a bit the OS, running AMP. It unfortunately led to a complete formating of the HD and thus, led also to a reboot. All musics are being re-uploaded as I write this message. Should take a few hours. I'll update this message when this is done.
 We apologize for the inconvenience during this period.

UPDATE: musics are now available ! FTP is up as well.

Cheers
Sylvain

Hey all,

 Curt Cool's wife gave birth to a beautiful Julie earlier this month.
 I'm sure you'll all join me in congratulating them Smiley

 Meanwhile, Curty still found the time to hand over a CD48 (yes, we are there ..). How you managed this one, Frank, is beyond me Smiley

Cheers
Sylvain

All

 And then, suddenly, 2012 is gone. It feels like this last years was shorter, if we stick to AMP's figures:
- 6500+ musics were added
- 300+ musics were updated/changed
- 179 pictures were added
- 400 authors were added (600+ modified and 20 removed)
 I hope AMP fares at least that good in 2013 Wink

 In the name of AMP team, I wish you the best for 2013.

Cheers
Sylvain

05.12.2012 (19:38) - Gacuch/Accord passed away - by Asle
All,

 We get the news that "Marcin Gackowski (Gacuch/Accord) suddenly passed away on 2 octobre 2012".
 This is very sad news and AMP team members wish to send their deepest condolences to his family.

 Marcin was a prolific musician we number more than 100 musics.

 As heart breaking as it is, we thank whoever uploaded this news, along with some photos, on the FTP.

20.11.2012 (19:02) - Kestra at 30000 - by Asle
Well, the title says it all I guess. Kestra has now reached the 30000 Amiga prods mark.
Hats off, Zeg Smiley
Although, AMP isn't officially linked to Kestra, both Curt Cool and myself are involved deeply in this project.
Anyway, I look forward to 35000 Smiley

On the news department, Crown has been seen lurking around. He started to update some information anew ... not really a grand come back, but ... Smiley

A small announcement regarding today's event that happened down in Luxembourg, at Crown's.
He, and his wife, are now happy parents of a daughter.

So, in the name of AMP, I extend my congratulations to the happy family.

Cheers
