I originally wrote this song using a program called Music Shop on a Commodore 64 when I was about 17. Working with a C64 was great, but the SID sound chip could only produce 3 different sounds at a time, so the musical ideas had to be somewhat simplified. I eventually made this mix of it using an Alesis QuadraSynth S4, which has lots of symphonic patches, or at least symphonic samples that can be coerced in programs. I tried to make patches that were reminiscent of the original C64 SID chip sounds, and I got fairly close. Of course it’s moot because I’m the only one who knows what the original SID sound patches sound like.
