This version contains additional 2 versions where channel B has 50% or 75% of volume.

Hello,

very nice work Geco! Well done and thank you.

I've converted my SID tunes from your instructions found there:

https://www.worldofspectrum.org/forums/discussion/comment/898694/#Comment_898694
 (I've downloaded the 32bit converter from https://enterpriseforever.com/sound/sid-lejatszo/?action=dlattach;attach=17530 )

I've set 4:00 time by default for the length of the tunes, but it seems the song is looping even before that, I don't know why.

For me 75% sounds balanced for the output. But I have a question, since SID are mono, why not releasing a monophonic version as well?

Here is a disk with my tunes in attachment. Some are sounding better in the original SID, but I also prefer some other in this AY conversion (for example glys.m64)!!

Hello Garvalf

Thank you :) , main worth for Istvanv for the original EP version and Speccy version, i made smaller part, and i used Speccy version for base, it was modified to CPC.

Cool. :)
The looping is caused by memory limit, on 128 KB CPC without memory expansion only 5x27=135 seconds can be played back, with 256 KB expansion17x27=459 sec. On Enterprise 128 KB is enough for full playback time, because the digi is played in interrupt, and in free time the data is unpacked.

Unfortunately i can not do mono version, because three sid channels are routed to three different AY channels in newer versions, SIDB was mono, the data was written to AY channel B, but its quality was poor therefore i deleted from the disk, in older attachments you can find it.
I downloaded your tunes, I will listen them on EP also :)
