8 Track Octamed Music

I want to find music which uses all 8 octamed tracks.

I used to have a disk with at least 4 eight track mods on there, with each track playing for a very long time without looping, but I cant remember the names of any of those.

They would likely have been part of the PD Soft collection.

on the modland ftp you can browse some folder with octamed modules:
OctaMED MMD0
OctaMED MMD1
OctaMED MMD2
OctaMED MMD3
OctaMED MMDC
maybe you find something there.

Thanks for the link. I have checked out those files, but even though some say they were written in Octmed MM0 MM1 and MM2 etc, the songs themselves are only 4 track songs, not the 8 track songs I'm lookings for.

I remember I got 4 on a PD Soft/Blitterchips PD disk, but I dont have access to the PD soft library, even though I used to have the whole collection on CD.

The day I saw octamed 3 running in 8 track mode I was astonished! I didnt think this was even possible.

The songs on the PD disk all had short names, like Smoke, or something like that. I tried files under this name but they are 4 tracks.

ever heard of United Public Domain (UPD) - Blitterchips was part of them:
Quote:
Blitterchips, NBS, Start, and Vally, had combined their
PD collections, with new a reference system, to produce (probably) the largest
collection of Public Domain in the world!!
to make a long story short, here is the content of the cd collection.
there are also music folder(s):
/updgold-02/music/
updgold-02/music.guide

maybe you find something there.

Thank you so much guys!

8 VOICE! - this is the key word I was missing.

I have now raided Aminet for 8 voice tracks, and I have looked through all the PD-Soft music disk lists, and I think the disk I was looking for was PM163. Lots of memories on those disks, the 100 C64 tunes on disk 1, the Digital Concert disks, will enjoy going back through those.

It also looks like my week will be busy going through UPD memories.
