dEViLOCk - good point regarding "muscle car". I've got the same feeling :)

That's what i call an intro tune! :-)
Very cool powerful drums, nice arps and sweet fx on the arps at about 35 seconds of playing time or something. the lead melody has something 70s-muscle-car-driving-on-the-highway feeling about it :-D ... don't ask me why ^.^ ... could also be a soundtrack to a racing game :-)

Thanks again for your feedback, mates. :-) It is so nice to read such nice comments from such great names, especially after such a long break I had with SID releases. I am still warming up, though, and I hope to make some new releases quite soon.

Nice solos and widescreen arps VS sync/ring sounds! Really powerful.

Thanks for your comments.

About JT "influence": I recorded the melody on keyboard in PC (and there is actually a Reason version of this same tune I did before the SID one), and I am not a person with such ability to play anybody else's music on keyboard, let alone playing in a style of somebody else. I think this impression of having influence from JT happened merely due to the reverb effect I used over the melody, which is something I managed to do for the first time ever on SID (as it can be seen from my other tunes where I tried to do it, but somehow was not successful and didn't put enough effort to make it work until now). Needless to say, I like JT's music very much of course, but that is another thing. :-)

Flex, I am glad you like it! Growing up with some of your tunes in our teenage years and now hearing this comment is really very pleasant. :-) The file is long because I didn't crunch it and it includes the screen. Music is actually 3936 bytes.

Edit: I should also thank Katya and Evrim for listening to the workstages of this tune and for their feedback.
