BPM 125
Format MDAT
Loops Yes

The song plays to the main menu, while the title screen has its own song. The filenames on the disk are CHOOSE.OPT and smpl.Logical-Choosemusic.

Due to the Amiga having one more channel, the fill-in also plays together with the sampled chords. The fill-in does not have the extra tom at the first beat of the third bar, and in the second bar of the chord sequence, one chord has been moved to the 11th beat.

This version restarts at 0:15.38.

Released 1991-??-??
Length 1:31.95
BPM 125
Format SID
Loops Yes

The song only plays to the title screen, while the main menu is silent. It is track 1 in the rip. The original disk does not have filenames.

Due to the C64 having one less channel, the fill-in does not play together with the rapidly-arpeggiated chords. The fill-in has one extra tom at the first beat of the third bar, and in the second bar of the chord sequence, one chord has been moved to the 10th beat.

The bass uses a low-pass filter. However, it varies with every SID chip and may be too loud on some of them. The recording was made in VICE 3.2 with the model 6581 (ReSID) and a filter bias of -400, but it is unconfirmed how close it is to the SID chip Stember used for this song.

This version normally restarts at 0:15.35. However, after 11 loops, at 14:18.04, it restarts at 0:00.00, because the music editor and driver (Soundmaster v3.1, modified (possibly by Stember) to fade in every song) do not support looping at an arbitrary position, forcing Stember to copy-and-paste.
