MB-6582 midibox sid - C64 - Shadowfire cover


"Messing around with the MB6582 midibox sid (with a bit of help from a supersaw to fatten up the lead melody)...

Shadowfire. I LOVE this tune. It's got a kind of epic scifi story feel to it. True childhood escapism at the time when i was really into it. I found it quite hard to recreate, but keeping close to the 8bit version i think it ended up sounding pretty cool and quite faithful to the original.

Cheers to:
For the great selection of box set art and inlays which i looked up to use in the video.
For making the fact that an MB-6582 exists a reality and something i was eventually able to build :)

Shout out to Fred Gray - the composer of the original C64 version."
