Cute. Like the Furby equalizer of sorts and the effect on the scroller. I was almost expecting something to come out and hit the furbys to make the sound ;-) The orbiting dot is a nice little detail.

Thanks for all the comments!
I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. For me this was the rare instance where capabilities and ambition aligned.

@Flotsam: I did try some stuff with pulse tables, wave tables, filters but to me it didn't sound better (perhaps maybe the lower notes). I also dabbled with sound in the first part (yawns and stuff), but that also didn't improve things.
But then again: I worked on the music so much, in the end I could not listen to it with any kind of objectivity.

Fantastic! <3 I disagree with Flotsam here - sound fits fantastic and I love organ vibes.

I like it a lot as it is, but would love it if the generic instruments were replaced with something more exotic, something that sounds like a furbee.

Furbies 4EVER!! Cool intro, Sync a sid to gfx or effects is always amazing.

I really like the attention given to the details, like the mouths moving when there is a vibrato in the voice. Very well done!

@Compyx: 4 octaves actually. I can only get max 8 rows of Furbies because of the character overlay.
An earlier version of this had 64 Furbies, but in the end I went for the keyboard layout. And this made it possible to have an orbiting planet.

@iAN CooG: I thought I'd make a sid myself, because I have the source, so easy peasy, right? But the result sounded quite different from the intro and I don't understand why (different timings changing ADSR results?). I still have lots to learn about the SID.

Oh wow, the furbies are basically 5 octaves. And if you keep a close eye at 'em, you can follow the music.
Very cool.

Funny =) Took me a good hour to rip, rebuild the init (didn't restart) and compact the tune to a 6kb file, damn spaghetti code!11
