The start is very 80-like. The main melody is variated slightly though it's used too much. Nothing new with the beat it just runs smooth in the background No effects 2 samples running the same melody over and over again. Simple Intermidiate sample, no bad no good either.

This track is very limited, it has only 4 samles. The bassdrum is too high and dominant. The melody seems okay, though slightly repeatative. All in all it seems that the artist could have but alot of more efford into the song and therefor it seems unfinished. The bassdrum could actually be adjusted by turning of one of it's two channel, which will give it a more pleasant volume level. None speciels used, none effects which could have made the tune fill up the space better.

I have to say that I liked this tune when I first played it. But when I came to around pattern 11. It started to repeat that pattern again and again. After 5 min. of waiting I got tired of waiting and pushed forward in the tune. This ofcourse pulls the rating down alot. Otherwise it would have made a great tune, nice variation. Ohh yeah, there is one more thing I didn't like the most of the beat consist of a drumloop, which I personally doesn't like very much. It's much more fun to make the beat by yourself. All trough the tune the artist seem to know where he is heading. Start, main and ending is well arranged. Which leaves quite a professional impression. He has some really nice effects. The samples a big especially the drumloop and they are all in 8 bit quality.

This tune is very good, and I like it quite alot. But it gets borring after hearing it a couble of times. This is because the melody isn't variated enough, it goes on and on through out the hole song. The rest of the song beat and strings is really nice and new stuff comes in sometimes. Though it has nothing new to add to the genre. The channels panning possion looks kinda odd to me, I can't really see where the artist is going with that. In the rest of the tune the artist seem to know where he is heading, which gives an impression of a quite confident and fairly experienced tracker.

I have to say I don't personally like chip tunes, which can kinda affect my opinion of this tune a little. Anyway with the use of only one sample I guess the artists possibilities is maybe just a little limited, and yes he uses the samle to the max. But having so many posibilities that we have today, I don't really see the point in stepping back to where we was. Not that it can't be fun a short while. Since I'm not really into the chip tune genre, it's kinda hard for me to judge how good this guy is in the techniques.

This tune starts out really Gabba-alike, but softens up a little bit, which I mean qualifies it to be in the hardcore catagory. The theme also got an egyptian twist to it, which is very kewl. But all in all the tune gets really anoying after a couple of times, because the theme isn't variated enough. Good arrangement, and I especially like the Age of love sample. Mixed sample quality both 8 and 16 bit. Nothing much more to say here.

Basicly a nice tune. Starts really slow out, but builds up to be a really nice song. A nice flowing maintheme backed up by a bumbin' rough beat, with a noticable basedrum. Throughout the hole tune runs a pretty strange hihat but I guess it fits very well. The beat is actually kinda drum n' bass stylish without quite being it anyway. Along the tune runs a nice pair of strings too. The panning is noticeable with head- phones and can't be complained about. All in all nice effects.

Guess why I give this tune such a high rate is because I like mellow ;) No seriously this tune is working in every way. The theme is it in something about the subcunsciousness said by some voice samples, which is supported very well by the music it self. I like the hihat very much and the bongodrums appears acationally. I find this trax string very well choosen too. All effect works perfectly. The bell sample is very well fitted into the tune. and the analog sequences helps the tune reache yet another level. My ending comment must be bravoure! :-)

The artist calls this piece dreamhouse, so I better do that too. It's very similar to Robert Miles music. So yes this is dreamy, and with a acidtwist to it even. The main- theme is ofcourse made by using piano samples. I woudl have giving this track more if it had been more creative in it's genre, but I can't but a finger on any wrong doings which means that this is really nice tune. Sample quality all good. The piece support it's self good all in all. The acid samples are incorporated good in the tune, by playing them low and slow. Endingly nicely created a tune the creator can be proud of.

This is techno with that kinda spaceport touch. The fact that it is in mono mode kinda disapointed me. The beat support the theme pretty well. All though it's a pretty well done song I can't give it that much. Because has nothing really special to give. Ending the musical part I like to say that I like the mainthemes horn part, which I take my hat off for. There not that much to say here, since it is mono there is no pannings to comment. Everything else is handled pretty well. All samples 8 bit quality, no hearable noise.

This is very nice music. The beat is well known dance beat, spiced with some kewl acid pannings. These works together with really atmospheric strings. The Piano theme works really well. Which in the end gives a tune you can hear again and again. The strings works really well, and when you listen to it with headphones, you'll find the pannings very plesant. The pattern arrangement is okay, and the samples are of very fine quality. The fact that stops this song from getting more than 9.0 is it's shortness. It could easily have been 2 - 3 minuts longer without loosing any quality. I also find the ending pretty quick and clumsy. Else keep up the good work!!

This tune has a march kinda beat, with a melodic kinda twist to it. The theme is variated which is good, but it comes out borring in the end anyway. The really nice thing about this track is a good trumpet kinda theme, which later in the tune turns into some strings which I think isn't suitable to the beat. This guy seem to be alot better than this tune makes him. He just have to make some musical adjustments. This track has nice samples, there is no problems with the patterns, as far as I can see. All in all a good tech rating.

This track is very cool, and very rock stylish, but as the composer writes (in danish), this track is very much like Deep Purples Hush. Not that that is a bad thing. Anyway, I can't hear any musical faults, even though it would have been nice with some panning or something with the samples position in the room. This is an "old" track from 1994, and because of the evelopment in the tracker prog- rams I have to say that it's here the tracks rate has been pulled down. The mod format does tread the samples good, which means, the quality of this tune could have beeen much better.

The acideffects has a nice paning and the beat fits pretty good furthermore the lead is fairly variated. On the downside we have the voicesamples, especially one sample is getting me on the nerves, because it's used way too much. The arrangement of the patterns are as they should be, very good knowledge in all the programable sides. It seem that some of the voice samples are of bad

This tune works allright, beat nicely done, and the tune have a nice lead. But unfortunally in the middel of the tune he use some strange sample, which to me most of all sounds like noise. I don't know if the artist got an idea with that noise but it destroys the experience for me. There is not so much to say here. The samples are okay(but the noise sample ofcourse) No doubt that the creator knows how to track, but I think he can do better than this.

This is a very nice 1 sampled piano piece. The artist uses "all" four channels, and the tune sounds very emotional. The melody is variated enough so it isn't at all anoying. Yet it is not a tune I wants to stick to for a long time. Because there is only one sample, which already seem to have an anoying affect on me. This guy can play the piano for sure. It's very nice to listen and relax to. He has some nice volume changes, and the tune is very hamonic. The (one) sample is in a fairly good quality.

Good slow bumby beat, the slow dark melody is really really cool. The tune is steady build up, ending up with almost a complete tune, but at the end, the track is just cut off, which leaves you with kinda a incompetent feeling towards the creators No complains in this part, like the strings, like the beat, like the samples. The creator handles the loops and volume fades to exellency, so horray .. let's have more from the 2 of them!! :o)

It's eye of the tiger allright, and yet not quite. The lead string, doing the vocal do not really fit into the other music, maybe he should have soon somethinng else. The beat flows quite nice 80 rock kinda style and the guitar is also quite simular. Nice technical work, maybe a some small problems with some of the shift in the song. Sample quality quite alright. But that combistring .. uhh I don't like, sorry to say it's sad because with a better string this track would be a really nice one.

This song got the nice egyptian twist that you would exspect from the title, also the beat has a kinda samba rytme to it, which mixes very good. On the downsides I think the main melody is indeed egyptian but kinda annoying to hear running over and over again, maybe a little change would have done the track good He gets kinda easy about some of the parts of the song, because the sample he use is beat with melody, which at me counts as uninspiring and using too much of the sample. End notice nice shifts in the song and good sample quality.

This track can be rated in the "big boys" category. I think this track really sounds great. My favorite part about this track is near the ending, there is a quite part and the beat suddently get a tribal kinda toutch to it. I don't see how this track could had been made any different. This artists skills with the tracker program is great, which surely indicates more great tracks from his side. Finally the tune is not too filled up with too much panning, which some trackers tense to do.

I like this tune very dark melody. The bass follow and support the lead nicely. The slow bumby beat fits into the hole thing too. So if you like ambient this is worth having a second glans at. This artist really knows what he wants and how to get there. He uses a wide spectra of possibillties and gets a nice result out of it.
