This tune did blew us away back then at the Primary Star 2004 !!! Awesome work! Especially the part from 1:30+ to 3:00 minutes in the 'Rock_Sid_compo_version.sid'.

I have to say it, this is most likely one of the best (if not the best) covers ever made on the sid.

Massive respect to Hein for the awesome craft.

Just a question, how come the rastertiming positions in calling the music are so close together? Was that intended?, because at first view of the screenshot I thought the tune would sound broken, even though that it surprisingly doesn't ;)

At home it sounded better. I thought there was too much treble on PS04. Maybe it sounds warm at home coz I use old speakers that have been kicked by synths a bit too often.

You must listen to the tune with many bass(prefered a subwoofer) and very loud! Then it sounds very good, thats also the reason why it sounded so good at the PS04. Otherwise the effekts are not so good.
