50.000 tunes uploaded! Unepic Stoned High SID Collection (USHSC)

Sunday, July 10th, 2016 by Mr.Mouse


Yesterday marked the completion of the fully automated upload of more than 50.000 Commodore 64 SID tunes to a single YouTube channel, check my VLOG of itI started this project at the end of April 2016, and coded the program that would automate the upload. See this picture here to see the number of uploads per day! It took 66 days from first upload to finish. Effectively, there were 57 days of non-stop uploading, day and night (since I went on a holiday in between). Here’s a link to the readme.txt of the tool I coded to do the job. Phase 2 will be expanding the channel, checking/fixing tunes, and much more. Stay “tuned” for new updates. To keep track of it all, go to the USHSC Facebook page and like it!

I recently started a new project, unrelated to game research. Wait what? Then it has got to do with Commodore 64 right? Indeed. I used to compose SID tunes actively on the C64, back in the day. In this day and age, I still try to release at least a few products for that machine each year. It’s hard to find any time though, but I get by I guess. However, the love for SID and her composers will not die. I love to listen to the works of all SID composers, and I really want t honour them. Let;’s combine the two – listening and honouring – and create a gargantuan YouTube playlist with tunes by ALL composers. Not those few that the majority of people will know. No, ALL of them, as there are some brilliant compositions in there that we all should know. They deserve it. So check out this playlist and YouTube Channel. Be sure to subscribe if you wish to keep track of the uploads. Play the list while doing whatever, or just play to listen. You will discover some real gems, I’m sure. And you will never run out of new SID tunes to listen to.
