One of the best small msx collections ever released. I get back to Resolution quite regularly <3

Well I guess no one can be blamed for not listening through all the extensive back catalogue of DRAX, this one had slipped me until now. :) "Star Flake" is really atmospheric and amazing with a crazy depth on the lead. Please provide more DRAX magic! ;)

Thanks... The idea is actually pretty old... from the early 90's... I have some screen done by Mick of Visual Reality somewhere...

Absolutely great stuff, been listening to it again that evening. Especially Star Flake and Resolution send shivers down my spine. Onkel Drax, you're among the very few people on this planet able to create these timeless melancholic melodies that I can close my eyes to and drift away on a magic carpet of pictures evoked by your music.

Hehe, thanks alot Jaily... These positive words warms... I am glad you noticed the mood ;) ... I am trying to put alot of effort in creating the mood I am in when I am doing the music... actually I think it's more an unconscious thing... Thanks alot again...

Jesus friggin Christ, I missed it too, what the heck happened?! Bad propaganda I guess, much aggresive advertizing next time, please! =)

And now here comes the asslicking... =P

Oh man, these songs are überamazing, but I especially dig Expectations...
Already listening to the collection for a couple of hours as it really gives me the chilled out, good mood for work! Also a topless hula-dancer girly goes to Clarence for the smooth codework!

But Drax, you're a God, I bow infront of your greatness \:D/

Well, Im a little bit late on this, but this could be one of the best C64 music I ever heard: DRAX is a "master at work" when it comes to C64, not only SID technique, but music, modulation, inspiration. He is tellling you a history with his sounds. Big respect and total love for DRAX, despite other MON sounds or other C64 musician, this is one of THE BEST!

Well, MoN is both the same and not the same - it's just like looking at the stars - you see them but they might not be out there anymore... Past is also present in the present but as a remembered past and once experienced. What is it with you and the past, Pawel? ;)

Well, when you see the names DRAX for music and CLARENCE for code, you know you're getting some real quality work. Thumbps up from a happy longtime fan. ^_^

Nice to read the long feedback. I felt inspired and honoured throughout working with Drax on Star Flake. Thomas put serious effort in these musics, and they indeed turned out to be magnificent pieces.

Yes, very nice, the music and the graphics, but....I'd like to have an option which can enable/disable tune play time, so tunes may change automatically. Is this function hidden in the keyboard?

@JackAsser: My opinion is that .sid files belong to HVSIDS.
User Comment

<delete>@HCL: but.. but.. but.. but.. =) Shall we agree that .sid releases are OK if the author releases a disk like this first? And then, bundled in the .zip hacing the stand-alone .sid files aswell. </delete>

I am weak... =)

Yes, this release is great in all its glory and I really do like the GUI, BUT, as with all GUIs I get fed up with them after a while... ;) Where are the stand-alone .sid-files?

Rabbit's out of the hat!
Me got serious shivers through my spine listening to 'Star Flake'.
Dropped off my chair a couple of times, actually.
More or less, this collection is an 6581 orgasm.

Wow, amazing tunes from Drax! Cool design and code of the music demo. ´Star Flake´ could be a tune for a science fiction game and i like also a lot the sounds from the tune ´Hypersensational´.

The sound of the SID has found its maturity in this musicdisk.
Incredible soundprogramming and musical skills are performed here.
Incredible Thomas!

This is a real enjoyment to the ears.

"Star Flake" is awesome!

The messages in the scroller, the insight displayed here, both psycologically and musically, is awesome! Star Flake has the crispest bass filter i ever heard, sweeping melodies! My favourite is Resolution, because it does what it means: "The act or process of separating or reducing something into its constituent parts".

The channeling of REAL feelings in this musicdemo, is not to be missed!!
