This was originally made in Octamed in the 90's. It was converted to XM and the 8-bit samples were replaced with 16-bit samples. The file sat unused and forgotten for over a decade and has now has been converted to SPC.

As per usual, this song uses some non-standard IT vibrato waveforms (also vibrato is taking up a lot of bytes; it's used almost everywhere... it's why I'm always running out of bytes), filter sweeps, noise frequency sweeps, pitch modulation, and an 8 sample wavetable to cycle through. In a couple of places I've used some of psycopathicteen's code to generate two operator FM wave samples.

I hadn't planned on pulling a George Lucas*, but I shortened some samples and increased the echo. The song now uses echo delay 7, 9, and 10.

This is the most description I've ever given.

Nice, some samples in it make it even nicer

Thanks. Hopefully that's still the case. I just uploaded a revised version. In order to save 2727 bytes I chopped off the end of three drum samples which gave me more RAM for echo and pattern data.
