How to Play

The boxes in the middle will lead you to the pages with all the music. If you have SidPlay installed on your computer, you can hear the music in the C64 pages right away. If you would rather want to download the SID music for offline pleasure, go to the High Voltage collection.

The AdLib music can be played with a Ganbatte! plug-in for Winamp or XMPlay. It also plays the three tunes that has a 10th digitized track. A few very old tunes are not supported by any known plug-in, but there are links to MP3 versions in this case.

In the page with the FastTracker 2 music, I strongly recommend that you use the XMPlay application. You can use Winamp or ModPlug Player if you want, but none of them will play

all the tunes correctly. XMPlay may also apply cool effects such as e.g. surround sound or reverb.
