Length 1:04.32
BPM 127
Format UNK
Loops Yes

On the original arcade cabinet, Theme 1 also plays over holes 1, 6, 7, 16 and 17. It begins with very high-pitched rhythmic chirps and has two bass patterns. It plays on 3 of the 6 CEM3394 analog synthesizer chips.

Hole 1 also shows during attract mode. Arcade operators could decide whether music also starts with attract mode.

To record two loops plus 10 seconds in MAME 0.228, RAM was edited to play them during attract mode (where sound effects are off). VGMPF does not know yet how close it sounds to a real arcade cabinet. Certainly before MAME 0.225 from September 30, 2020, the bass is louder (has no low-pass filter).

Loops Yes

On the official Commodore 64 port, Theme 1 also plays over the main menu and holes 2, 4, 10, 12 and 18. Only the first bass pattern loops on a plain fast-decaying sawtooth at 0:00.30.

All instruments sound different, between tinny and full, on every 6581 because they use SID's infamous filter. Two loops plus 10 seconds were recorded from the main menu on:

  1. VICE 3.2 with C64 NTSC and a bias of 250.
  2. VICE 3.2 with C64C NTSC.

In the rip, it is track 2.
