About Radical Rhythms
Founded in winter 1994 by two guys called Cosmic and Cannibal, Radical Rhythms was a weblabel before there was a web (well, at least for us.. ;) )
Instead, a worldwide distribution network of BBSs was used for releasing their tracks.
Soon, more artists like Keith303 and DAC joined so Radical Rhythms grew to one of the biggest music-groups in the german demo-scene.
All tracks were produced using MS-DOS Tracker Software between 1994 and 1999:
Mostly d-Lusion X-Tracker (.DMF) and FastTracker II (.XM)
About this archive
This archive is written, run and hosted by stimpy, who is no and never was a member of Radical Rhythms.
At the time of writing all the tracks were converted to mp3 using the best result of several tools: xmp,
ocp, modplugplayer and
I am now in the process of analogue ripping all the tracks using the following hardware:
- Playback with XPlay 3.00 / FastTracker 2.06 on a vintage 486 DX2-66 (32MB)
- Line-Out via Gravis Ultrasound PnP (8MB)
- Line-In via Asus Xonar DG
- Recorded as 24bit, 44.1KHz, stereo WAV using Adobe Audition CC 2015
- Normalized to 100%
- Saved as 16bit, 44.1KHz Stereo WAV, I will most probably keep somewhere..
- Converted to 320kbps, 44.1KHz, stereo HQ MP3s using LAME
