Great coding work! Btw, release type should be changed to C64 Tool, the music is only to show what the player is capable of while the player is the actual release.

I'm kind of surprised that not more coders have improved the rastertime-usage of popular players
Well... we can't be improving old players and release new demos at the same time ;)

Nice release. I'm kind of surprised that not more coders have improved the rastertime-usage of popular players in a bigger scale before.

The other day I was browsing through the code of the DMC player and I noticed the amount of JMP and JSR, which take a lot of cycles.
I was sure it was possible to improve music players in general, and you're proving my point :)

I'm not a musician, but I do like small players as a coder ;)
