This tune differs quite a lot from most of the others... in a good way. I like this tune a lot. And a nice screen as well! ;)

Hehe.. Actually I expected this tune to get a less favorable response than it did. The tune was made in a hurry (1,5 hour or so) during some time that I didn't really have, and it is obviously rough and unfinished in many ways. Anyway, even though it would benefit from some more work, I will leave it at that. Was fun to participate, just for the sake of it! Cheers!

Musically exquisite. But please make it more accessible for my delicate ears.

I made a High-Score in 'Paradroid II' and listen to this tune. Nice tune.

I did add the .sid file for it.

The composition is lovely, but the instruments I'm not so sure about :)

Note that 8580 really is a must for this tune -- more so than for most tunes in general -- since the multiple filtered channels sound like crunchy porridge if played on 6581. (Also note that if you use VICE, you must use resid-fp rather than the old resid, because there is some code in the player init which will behave differently depending on the chip and only resid-fp is sufficiently sophisticated for the detection routines to work.)
