Cascade C64/Amiga
Tunes from Ray
Ray is not only the Cascade C64 musician (since a long time unactive, though), but also Zeldin's old schoolmate and longtime pal!
They already worked together back in 1986 on diverse C64 projects. Hundreds of C64 tunes were composed by Ray back in these days. The following selection of his tunes, are all made inbetween 1988-1997. Probably I will also release the very old tunes someday and probably there will be some new tunes someday... get your ass up you lazy fish... ;-) The files are in the meanwhile known SID (.sid) format. At the bottom of this page you can read some information about this format.

Information for listening to the .sid files:
Common PC audio players are most probably not able to play .sid files. So you might have to use special players or install a plugin, in case you use the famous WinAmp player. For more information about SID players or plugins, you should visit the chapter "C64/Amiga - Emulators and Tools".

Players/Plugins for playing SID music:
SIDTool V1.3.2
LittleSiD V2.0
SidAMP V1.4b

Musics from 1989
Made with Future Composer V4.

"First Impression" and "Horizon" are Ray"s very first FC-Tunes, made 1988/1989

"Living on Video" and "Tainted Love" could be heard in the V-Lucid Music-selectors called "Musicstation" (1990).

"I wanna hold your hand" was used in the demo "Beat-les" (1990 V-Lucid).

"Susanne" is the Future Composer adaption of an old Soundmon music by Ray. Whilst the FC Tune is all in all a bit weaker (IMHO) than the old SM version, it nevertheless appeared in 2008 as topnotch remix called "Susanne (Another Sometime)" on RKO. Big thanx to Ic3m4n for da very tasty cover version!

The musics presented here are in C64 .sid format. In case you are not familiar with this format, here are some explanations from wikipedia:
A .SID file, colloquially known as 'a SID', is a sound data file not only containing the note patterns, but also the 6502 program code - often called a 'player' - needed to replay the music on the SID. All actual sound is produced by the SID chip, or a software emulator that emulates the SID chip. The High Voltage SID Collection contains over 45,000 SID tunes. The SID files have the MIME media type audio/prs.sid.

The SID file format is not a native format used on the Commodore 64 or 128, but a format specifically created for emulator-assisted music players such as PlaySID , Sidplay and JSidplay2. However, there are loaders like RealSIDPlay and converters such as PSID64 that make it possible to play a substantial portion of SID files on original Commodore computers.
