in thread Music is the most fun when stored via...

/me grins...I would sooooo like to agree with you (and many others do - I still get mails fom people who are listening to our old SID stuff) for loyalties sake alone, but I think the furthest I can go is to say that "music was most fun when *conceived* for the SID chip" :)

Yes, I loved it too - it was my living for many a year - but 3 voices can get a bit tiresome after 300 tunes - believe me :) The C64 remix movement on the other hand is great! Quite bizarre hearing something that was written for a rock goup *in my head*, realised via 3 voices (dum dum *cha* dum dum dum *cha* dum) and then played by a live group 20 years later. (That's them in the background of my home-node picture, BTW). Not to mention my 5c-per-copy royalties :)
