Awesome music! I’ve heard it many, many times, but it still works great for me 🙂 Good story with Suntronic, etc. Cheers Everyone!

Well done!. The original music-format was not composed of any specific tracker. it was a CUSTOM weird format if I remember well. true?

So it looks like this was made with the Suntronic music editor, which appears to be a music editor from a group called “Sunriders” (what a cool name!) from Germany. The other, longer version appears to be “shade long”. Will have to verify it in UADE.

This is why it appeared to me to be an editor: http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=33259 …if all of those are DC.b’s, that’s a really oldschool way to do music, originating from 20CC composers in Turbo Assembler on the Commodore64…

afrika equ 30 😀

I didn’t know Africa could be expressed in terms of a simple EQU… now that’s Zen. 😀
Joking aside, the source code is pretty sloppy as far as attention to detail goes. It also starts out with system calls, then ends up banging $dff080 anyway: I mean either do everything through the OS or bang the hardware, but not both since such programs will never be clean. No wonder engineers at Commodore wanted to pull their hair out.

So “shade long” really is the long version, and it appears to be an Amiga port of the Commodore64 original:
