Awesome technical achievement with that sample routine! Congratulations to Mahoney and THCM. As a digi-composer myself (I used Reflextracker) I can really appreciate that much of a quality sample playback. And last but not least - thanx to all the guys for the demo. I like the gfx of the 4 dudes on stage during the scroller part. And their animated mouths are also nicely done.

How about writing an article on that sample playback routine/trick, Mahoney & THCM?

Into the hall of shame, I hereby attach the sid files used in this marvelous production. It's really all about the work of wizardry with the cleanest samples ever by Mahoney, but never-the-less here are also the sids.

The acapella part is sheer genius. I loved the opening voice as well with the cute eyes and mouth.
The chaotic graphics are unique and a nice novelty but please don't make a habit of it. lol
The last part was too long-winded for me but I do realize you wanted to show what you can do with a SID chip.
You set a new milestone for SID demos. Respect.

This is just so incredible unbelievable....
I headed to the next so-called mediamarket to buy a C64 breadbin to convince myself about the cool stuff here.
At least I reached future now \o/

Didn't run on my Ultimate-I, but worked fine on the old 128D-CR I had to reactivate because my last PSU for the breadbox seems to have gone to data heaven... Awesome samples, I love innovations like these!

Nice Mahoney!! I really enjoyed this demo, so cool to see and hear new SID techniques. This one must involve finding one value for each combination of two samples, that means finding tens of thousands of values at least semi-manually. Will be really interesting to hear how you did that.. My hat goes off for you!

The length of the sampled audio is really remarkable, as well as the quartet part which is absolutely brilliant and crystal-clear, not to mention the scroll text. :)
The audio in the first talk part and in the last vocal song is however distorted. Same result in Vice 2.4 and on the real hardware with the old SID. Is this intended or is my SID broken? I am surely missing something here. Not having been at the party being the first item in the list.... :/
Thumbs up, Mahoney!

Works on my 1541 Ultimate 2 rev. C (the one where the SD card disappears a bit in the case) with official FW 2.6h.

Had it running in VICE, these are the best samples I ever heard on the 64. But unfortunately it does not run on my 1541U2. I only see the first text screen, then it crashes...

I almost thought this would get the #1 place in that compo since the crows was totally going nuts when the demo ran. Awesome innovation as we have gotten used to when Mahoney is pulling the strings..

Wat. o.o
In all the years, from simple beeps to the best synth music one can get to this the SID never ceases to amaze. Keep up the good work!

I really like the visual style of the beginning. ...Reminded me of experimental (max/msp) video installations sometimes used to accompany idm tunes ...

after rewatching the c64 prods i have to say this is my personal #1 from datastorm. not only because of audio wizardry but also because of fresh looking glitchy visuals.
