Title: Soundtrack Demo v.0 by BCAV (Fabien Fessard)
Post by: ComSoft6128 on 08:01, 17 August 21

French musicdisc/demo from 1988 which features the game music of David Whittaker.
This excellent music demo holds all the music data, music player, screen display and scroll texts (x2) in one small 17K file, which incidentally is the size of a normal CPC screen file.
I play 4 tracks with the first 3 getting two minutes of playing time, the last track gets just a wee bit longer. Switching between the tracks is instantaneous and this demo is a great example of what was/is possible on the CPC.

Best to listen to it using headphones or a sound system with good stereo separation.
