AFAIK Goattracker 2.71 can have arbitrarly set pitch standards, so you can have your NTSC tunes sound in the same pitch as most PAL tunes, e.g. -g424 or similar in the command line.

i figured out now that it seems to be my fault 'cause i used the wrong player routine :-( ... think i have to re-release this one with the 2.0-player instead of the 1.8 player if i composed the tune in 2.0 beta 8 - :-D stupid me - i didn't notice the difference yet 'cause i had enough problems to get the tune to work at all since i'm no coder .. did listen to it today and heard that it was a few hertz to low. there must be some changes in the PAL/NTSC frequency table in the new player or so ... don't know ^_^ - so ... blah ... may i do a re-release or can i delete this one or what? ;-) ... oh i forgot - the SID is also too low in tune. ooopsy

PAL-N is the TV standard used in Argentina. A company called Drean sold modified C64 machines there which are neither compatible with PAL nor NTSC. Your music will also sound wrong if the user selects NTSC.
So basically, they will have to choose the right model.

If the music gets packaged into a .sid file it will play correctly as those files contain information about the C64 model that should be used for playback.

... just noticed that the music runs too slow if i set the model settings in VICE to "C64 PAL", it plays only at correct speed with settings at "C64 PAL N"! ... why is that? (using Mac OS X 10.6.8). i don't use emulators but i don't want my musics to sound wrong when others listen to it, ya know ...

thanx guys, i got a C64 with old SID recently, so i wanted to do my first song with old chip. i normally compose songs for 8580. i was very happy with my own 6581 (real thing of course, i never use emulators) because of the sick filter distortion of the "octave bass" (the lack of solo part didn't matter here) and the much warmer sound of the sine waveform. sadly this can't be emulated like the real thing and also on real machines there are so huge differences in the 6581 chips that the tune never sounds as it intended to sound. so ... i don't know. this song will be a sort of concept song with multiple parts, and i stick to the 6581 for that. maybe after that i return to 8580 :-) ... but of course the sound is exactly how i wanted it to sound (but only on my own C64) :-)))))

Nice and everything mate but it seriously lacks a solo.

Using real C64 with old chip here won't change much (for instance I have 6581 R4AR only)... so, you can avoid SID revison issues by using 8580 :)

I like the intro part especially. Midtune sounds jammy and somewhat undecisive :)

Outpost - composed in SID DUZZ'IT by dEViLOCk.
Please use real machine with old SID. If you have to use an Emulator, select SID Model 6581R3 0486S (reSid-fp), which sounds most original. The tune may fuck up if you use other old SID models. I don't know why! ... hope you like it :-)
