Thanks again for all the nice feedback :)

Devilock: Funny you should say that about the drums. Adding drums was actually a last second decision. During the workstage of this tune there were no drums until the very last save :)

very nice chord progression and i love how the melody starts very low and then rises into a higher octave. however, to me it sounds more like an end tune, because of the many minor chords. But very good tune, listend to it more than 20 minutes while eating. :-) ... oh and, perhaps ... if you do an extended version you could try how it would sound without drums at all, maybe? I think the tune would also work without drums.

Chords and melody are nice. The bass is a little too twitchy for my taste.

Thanks for the feedback :)
It never occured to me that this might sound more like an end-tune, but I hear it now that you say it. The one minut limit bugged me a bit, cause I wanted to make it longer. Maybe some day I will.

Lovely, but sounds more like a delicious demo end part rather than cracktro beats ;) I'm glad to hear sth new from you mister!

Sorry, couldn't help myself. Just had to do one more. I won't upload the sid just yet as I am struggling a bit with it. The bassdrum in the intro seems to drown completely.

Tune was, like the two others, made in Vice, never tested on the real thing.
