Announcements / 2020

And .. here we are, it's 2020 already !
So, to everyone, and in the name of AMP team, I wish you all the best for this new year.

 This is an opportunity to thank, as usual, every individual who has sent us information and/or material to enrich the collection. Wayyyy to many, yet again, to list you all here.

 As far as news go, 2019 was an eventful year, for sure. We migrated to a new server, switched ftp to a cloud, had our share of panic moments when we went off the air for a couple of weeks, etc. Hopefully, it'll be smooth sailing for 2020 :)

 Thanks for using the new cloud we set up (replacing our old FTP).
 I've handled all I could so far. However, a few files came up where I couldn't decipher an author.

 Whoever upped this, please contact me or reply here.

Announcements / new server and collateral changes
« on: March 31, 2019, 21:15:16 »
To all our users,

 Going back a few weeks ago, we have migrated AMP to a new server (taking care of PHP7 mandatory upgrades and the like). The announcement is only made now since we have had various difficulties here and there.
 You can see one of the consequences in the Forum. The old design wouldn't fit anymore with this way more up-to-date version. The second main consequence is the FTP which had to go. The way our new server is set up wouldn't let us easily create an FTP sever. We opted for a cloud solution (Nextcloud). That way, whoever wants to send us something needs only to drop that "something" on

Musician database / Yomaru Kasuga musics
« on: March 03, 2019, 23:24:35 »

 I don't usually track down moves like that but this is a special case.
 After a discussion with Yomaru Kasuga and a public discussion also on, several dozens of musics are now off the download list.

 We, AMP Staff, are agreement with Saga Musix and what is written on modarchive forum -> straight MIDI->S3M conversion in a two clicks sweep should not be featured on tracker-oriented archive websites.

OK, back to tracing what happens ...

And we start by yesterday's upload ''. Zip is fine but the XM inside is NOT - missing some byte.
Whoever sent it, please, locate the correct version.

In the name of AMP admins, I wish you all a happy new years 2019.

This new year message was lost in space in recent years but then, I thought it was nice to show there's still some life around here, so here we are.
It was a bit quieter than the previous years, activity wise. Still, about 3600 musics were added. and the usual bunch of updates happened as well (music and musicians, of course).

I must, once again, thank way too many people to make a list. You all know who you are. A special, thank you, however, to all musicians/coders who provide us with the original material (MOD) when applicable. While it is still not a common practice, it certainly is VERY much appreciated when it happens !

I hope we still stand when celebration time comes next year. And until such time, I wish everybody all the best, once again, for 2019

General Discussion / Polish Magazine Music Compo
« on: May 13, 2018, 13:54:37 »

 Now there's a fun story.
 Last week, Crown uploaded a big archive on the ftp (@Crown, please report where you dug it from !). Said archive contained a lot of musics coming with several texts in Polish. From the music comments it made sense this referred to a music compo that was setup by an Amiga magazine in Polish language.
 To make it short, the archive contains all that was received at the time (end of 1998), sending a last call and saying that the final results would be published around Apr 1999.

 I, thus, called upon Jazzcat for help ... and ... I received shortly afterward scans of those results !! (they are attached).

 So, here's where we stand.
=> most musics are already known
=> some musics are missing since the balance of what was shown by the end of 1998 was completed until the result were published
=> I've written the results as best as I could <- I need help fixing this :)
=> what "party" name could be used ?
=> what is the publishing date ? can't decipher said date on the scan (first page on the lower right bottom)

* The musics are here :

and, here follow those transcribed results - please help translating the remaining Polish ones :

Requests / BMP 2
« on: October 08, 2017, 15:52:11 »
I've written about this on Demozoo Slack channel but it makes sense to have a forum entry to follow this.
I've tried to locate all the entries that were made in the Blacktron Music Compo 1998. From what I can see from their old website (at, there are more than 500 (!) entries , split in 6 categories. Unfortunately, the image doesn't store the entries themselves, as they were stored on an outside FTP site ( Said ftp site was note archived it seems.
So, my request : if anyone has a dump of this site, please give a call. Menace agreed to mirror this on if this somehow surfaces back :)

Support / Feedback / AMP is not working properly since 04/06
« on: June 06, 2016, 11:35:53 »

 We face an issue with the whole public front end of AMP, where queries and basic browsing are not working. This is an unfortunate consequence of some technical upgrade that didn't go as well as planned.
 We'll fix this shortly, hopefully.

 Sorry about that

Audio Trackers & Players / ZXTune - chiptunes player
« on: October 24, 2015, 18:41:38 »
We were sent the following email today. So, here it is. Note that AMP team has nothing to do with this and any question/request should therefore be addressed to the author.
I, Asle, didn't have a chance to test this on Android, so I have no personal feedback to provide for that. The MS-Windows version is very slow, and that's all I'll say. Not sure this version is the goal, so ...

Hello, guys!

I am the author of ZXTune - chiptunes player (homepage is ). It's free and seems to be liked by users. Unfortunately, it's not as widely uses as I want - I'm not a PR or SEO guru, just a developer:)
Android version of my app is able to browse Amiga Music Preservation collection online ( I've made two oneliners with GooglePlay link and many people was happy to know about ZXTune according to thanksgiving reviews:) But regular oneliner posting looks like a spam, so I prefer to ask you directly- can you add app link to information page on your site?
Android version is just a player, but desktop version has a quite powerful ripping possibilities.

If you have any questions - feel free to ask.

Thank you!
Ripping Amiga music / Up Rough musicdisks
« on: March 01, 2015, 16:42:20 »
 In the same spirit as the Confusion musicdisk discussion, I'm breaking my teeth on the various Up Rough musicdisks.
 Several examples are on Up Rough homepage.

 First, I can't even the damn things :) . Now, there's apparently an option, when running, to save the music being played. Even so, the musics are stored in sub-directories. However, they are encrypted. It's obviously a key, however, it's kind of a changing key.
 Anyway, tried several times and went nowhere.
 The one I've been looking after several time is this one :

 If anyone could help explain what I do wrong, that would be great.

 The first three episodes are already there at the time of writing this news.
Music Request / PC productions to rip
« on: July 16, 2014, 23:30:23 »
All right guys, there's some PC production I've been storing at home for later ripping (if possible). At the time I stored them, I tried to rip the music but failed for whatever reason, or simply didn't take the time to handle them.
I'm listing some of those here mainly to clear up my storage :) Also, maybe someone had a go at some of those and will save me the trouble .. heh

I'll update when needed depending on feedback. I'll add more also in time.
