  1. Minidisc

    Hi Ankarra, per my PM if you have any issues let me know. I have an MDS-JB980 professional deck which I can rip quite easily from (including if recorded in MDLP which doubled or quadrupled the recording space, albeit at lower quality). It is a beast of a machine with digital inputs and outputs. It recorded many a Jules show for me back in the day! Because of the great build quality people are still buying them up today to use them as a high quality slave DAC (Digital to Analog converter) in the middle, which is quite clever. Anyway however, to preserve the digital format I transfer Minidisc to CD-R via S/PDIF, into my Pioneer PD-609 CD recorder , then rip the CD to mp3 in my PC. A bit cumbersome, but it was the only way I could think of that I was content with to ensure the entire process involved only digital routes, not analog. If only they made decent PC sound cards with digital inputs and outputs and I could skip this! Again, a great machine: Minidiscs were awesome back in the day, packing in almost everything of what was audible into a physically smaller space than a CD. They were encoded in Sony's ATRAC compression algorithm. I read somewhere this was equivalent to a mp3 today encoded at about 256kbps
  2. 2017 Fantasy Football League

    Any hyperlink to how we go about this?
  3. Avo

    The percussion reminds me of Cosmic Grapa, could be another track on the same release? See below
  4. Audio archive - back online

    Just letting you know our audio archive is back online now. Sorry for the delay but we had some issues moving the files to a new server and storage system, which are now all fixed. Members can download again to their heart's content.... Some 68GB of Jules Audio!
  5. The audio archive is temporarily offline but should be up in 48 hours - sorry about that but we are moving servers. This set is unquestionably in my all-time favourites, glad you enjoyed
  6. Been a while since we had some new audio available for you all, so Simcut has dutifully dug out another one of those very special tapes for us from under the sofa... Nearly 20 years old but some serious gems on here. Enjoy!!
  7. RECENT JJ RETROMIXES 96

    Wonderful stuff - will be listening to these tonight Gutted to hear about those tapes though!!
  8. Yes that's a new one I just came across too, apologies. A workaround for anybody trying to view their private messages, click on the envelope sign in the top right and then "Go To Inbox" link... We are upgrading the site on Saturday which hopefully will fix this. We also have some brand new audio for you all to devour coming soon
  9. Conductor & The Cowboy - Sunshine ????

    The short clip is originally mine, which is lifted from Jules's show on 03/03/2001 - I happened to record a segment of the show and it was on it. I must try and find the minidisc now! From memory I'm sure Serious Records signed the track, but I've no idea why it never actually got released. Universal hold all the sound recording copyrights now for everything released before 2003, so we'll never hear it now. Might be worth asking Jules if he remembers?
  10. id229: Visage?

    Jules just called this a cover of Visage - "a rather dubious band from the 80s" ? This clip is probably from 1999 or 2000
  11. Have We Reached The End????

    Simcut has unearthed a few more tapes from 1998 and 1999. We're just sorting out server issue with hosting the mp3s and they'll be here
  12. Played by Dave Pearce back in 2002. I lost contact with ALF a long time ago but he was a top guy who at the time was putting out some really nice (unsigned) productions
