Exclamation Amiga Music Preservation

I was on a hunt for a mod and found this one : http://amp.dascene.net/

Not sure if this is really news to you guys, but I thought I share it anyway

another site that privileges quality of it's contents rather than a heavy design not always useful

Never see this site before, very good indeed.
Not so user-friendly, research for the NAME of composer (and not the SURNAME, yech! ), it misses completely the database song list, for easy viewing, and lacks for games music (only few titles). Apart this... (SIC! ), it'll worth a see.
Thanks for the link!

The AMP site seems to be offline for some days now (at least I cannot connect to it). Any news about online/offline status?

Better extremely late, than never, I suppose. That site has been up for.. decades, now?

What's not user-friendly there?

You ARE aware that most of music for Amiga DEMOS were composed under handles, not any 'family name' system?

The 'family name' stuff is optional in the demoscene, not a requirement.

If you don't know the handle of a composer, you are probably not the type of user this site was originally built for.

Also, the main point is preserving the music, not catering to unreasonable name requests.

I read this multiple times, and couldn't figure out what you meant by it. What's so difficult to view about the songs?

The site also has interviews, just by the way. This gives a deeper insight to the composer's worldview and thoughts. But I guess 'database song list for easy viewing' is more important? (I still wish I knew what that means)

WHAT? A demoscene music preservation-oriented Amiga module collection website doesn't have elsewhere easily-found-and-commercially-published-and-thus-copyrighted GAME musics??

Tell me it isn't so! How can this be? Unbelievable, you better mail a letter to the mayor RIGHT NOW!!1

Look, if you want GAME musics, they're easily available and all over the place. Demoscene musics are the ones that would easily get lost, if not preserved. Game musics you can probably still find 1000 years from now, for crying out loud. Invalid complaint.

Dude, pay attention to the posts you respond to.

You've just responded to someone that wrote that message

>>>18 YEARS AGO<<<

Please reconsider in light of that whether your response should just be deleted!
