2022 is gone ... 2023 has come,

This is season greetings, so to everyone; in the name of the AMP team; I wish you all the best for 2023.

Although 2022 looked like an attempt to return to normal after two crazy years, the worldwide health crisis is still lurking around. So I extend my wishes with a good health to you all.

This year, once again, many sent us material to enrich the collection. 2022 was no different in that regard. As such, I must thank everyone who has provided us to us with either information or material. Many people, again , and that's truly appreciated.
Should anyone wish to upload stuff, drop files here (no size limit)

A special note this time about those uploads. While they are REALLY appreciated, please consider sending archives and a description of what is uploaded (a few word in a text file). A contact email might be useful as well since some uploaded material is disregarded and I would like to explain why (broken file / already online / etc.).

News-wise, 2022 was very uneventful for AMP. No news from Crown and Monty for some time now. Curt Cool is dedicating a lot of time on preserving disks / collections (C64/Amiga) - contact him if you have disks lying around.  If you are an old BBS sysop (any platform) and the material+listing is still available, please contact us also !.

Some figures:
new musics : 2.848
updated musics : 245
new author : 238
removed author (merge/fix/etc.) : 12
updated author : 388

Be safe.

Hi and thanks for reaching out !

The first two are now linked to the author Seth. However, the next 3 have not. They come from Silent Wind demo which credit screen says otherwise - see attached snapshot.
Can you please double check and confirm to us that said credit screen is wrong ?

Since you are kind enough to be around, I must ask you about originals :) See, many of the musics by yourself that we store (even excluding the 3 listed above) are converted from The Player 6 - replay format used in demos. If you still have those original protracker, please share ! (see out upload page for details : If you need a list, just tell me.

Your country and name are fixed. Thanks so much for helping enhance the quality of data :)

Well, it's easy. It's all coming from where it is made very clear that the musics are by Captain.
I'll fix AMP.

And of course, once again, you're right. I mistook Logo and Logos.
It is now fixed.

Moved to \Slash for the moment.
All right, I've checked it all and it led to a few additions and some fixes (replacing bad rips).
Thanks to you.

Overall, only one Mosaic music, though.
I'll keep my hopes up :)
Requests / Re: API Access to the Modules on AMP
March 10, 2022, 22:45:23

Just to report that Monty promised to come back to you about this topic but spare time has been difficult to come by.
Just be patient please.

Thanks for your extensive reply and for suggesting several sources !
I took a little time to check this CP-ROSE1.EXE intro. It contained, indeed, a STX file. I've added the STX2STM conversion to AMP just now.

I'll dig up those numerous packs when spare time allows. Expect results hopefully soon :)

All the best,
Hi and welcome,

I don't really know if this is read, indeed. At least, it's still online :)
Short answer : I won't grab from modland to feed AMP. It may sound weird but that's an old policy. Give me real sources (those art packs you're referring to for example), please. Replicating other's work by considering it is correct at face value is the best way to spread mistakes - if demoscene "history" taught us anything.

I'll keep this topic on my TO LOOK FOR list :)

Hi Tygre,
All the best to you too !

I've been thinking about your request and figured that the "number of modules" is not useful to you. To shoot randomly within a valid range, you obviously need the highest ID attributed. Otherwise, you will missed tons of material.
Let me ask around about security concerns and come back to you.

Dear readers,

And here we are, once again ! It's a new year that starts today.
So to everyone; in the name of the AMP team; I wish you all the best for 2022.

Once again, 2021 was barely different than 2020 - which was strange, in many ways !

As usual, I would thank everyone who has sent us information and/or material to enrich the collection. We saw once again a steady flow of material this past year. Many people, again , reached out ! and that's really appreciated.
Should anyone wishes to upload stuff, please make sure it has clear authorship (add a text file if not) !

News-wise, 2021 was mostly uneventful for AMP. Curt Cool was still the upload beast we know and love, and Monty did some fine-tuning server wise.

Some figures:
new musics : 3.585
updated musics : 230
new author : 365
removed author (merge/fix/etc.) : 15
updated author : 377

Be safe.

The AMP team

Hi again,

Anything is possible at this point, I guess. However, I'm still stuck at finding out the basics of these API. See, aside the security concerns (which will have to be addressed at some point), there are all kind of questions regarding output format and the like.

I'm not sure shooting randomly with an ID is the thing to do. Many are not attributed anymore (dupe, mistake, etc.). Granted, it won't break anything, though.

There are also ID pointing of non-downloadable material (broken file, author's request, etc.). The URL listed should already handle that. I'm not sure of the output you get for the moment :)

Anyway, I won't be in a position to do anything any time soon for personal reasons. I'll discuss this with others and we'll see where this goes.

Thank you for sharing the recording.
It sounds .. bad. If this is how it sounds in the keygen, then someone mess up somewhere :)
From the noise I hear, I couldn't recognize anything, I'm afraid. Not that we are expert on Atari ST music here, anyway :)
