Re:Mix

mixed-mode CD tracklist

Article from The Mix, May 1995

The words behind the sounds on this month's CD and CD-ROM



About RE:MIX



RE:MIX combines normal CD audio with software readable by a computer's or sampler's CD-ROM drive. The software will not harm your CD player, but it may make an unpleasant sound. So if you value your speakers, don't play track 1! Most modern CD-ROM drives can also play audio CDs, so computer users get the best of both worlds. And don't worry about compatibility. Your CD-ROM drive — Mac, PC or Atari will simply recognise compatible files and allow you to open only those files.

PC SOFTWARE


TripleMagic!
A demo of this direct-to-disk sample editing and recording program. Needs at least 6Mb to run.

Sweet 16
Read the review in Toolbox, and then try it out for yourself with the Lite and demo versions on the CD-ROM.

Massive.ZIP
It's got nothing to do with being huge (although it is): it's a Massive Attack screen saver. Only works with SVGA monitors.

Pkunzip.EXE
A shareware file decompressor, so that you can unsquash the Massive Attack screen saver.

MIDI files
Roger's been twiddling his bits again, and this is the result.

Music Domain Catalogue
A current list of all to buy for PC from this PD library.

MAC SOFTWARE


MIDIQuest Librarian
A usable demo of this versatile librarian software. The full version is available from Arbiter Pro MIDI.

Samples
A small, but perfectly formed, pile of samples in IFF format, created using Alchemy.

MIDI files
The twiddlings in Mac format. Roger has been busy.

ATARI SOFTWARE


Sweet 16
Two versions of this excellent sequencer for the Atari (Falcon, TT, and ST/e compatible). A demo version of the fully working program with the save functions disabled, and the Lite version, which just has a few functions.

Stesnd.ACC
Falcon only. Emulate the STe's sound, so you can run STe compatible sound software with this useful accessory.

Paula
A versatile MOD player, compatible with all Atari computers.

SOXIO
Exchange various sample formats with this CLI sample convertor.

ST Zip
Unsquash all the compressed files on last month's Re:Mix CD, and anything else you can find with a ZIP on the end of it (ahem).

Samples
Another pile of AVR sounds to use in your everyday existence.

Music Domain Catalogue
The Atari part of the Music Domain PD catalogue. Can be read in any ASCII compatible word processor, or by just double-clicking on the file.

MIDI Files
Become a connoisseur of the MIDI sequencer with Roger's MIDI files in Atari format.
