Hello again, For what it is worth, the Basic listing in the Swedish magazine "Allt om Elektronik" (c:a 1982-83) is identical to the program on Zimmers' FTP, with the exception the black background and song title are omitted from the listing. It is possible that Didier remembers the song in this format too, and a 3rd party has added the song title to someone else's program at a later stage. The magazine doesn't give any credits whatsoever where it found the program, so it might origin from someone at Procep and then found its way to VIC-20 users around the world. That solved, the question is if reworking the loops would make the song play smoother. I tried this control sequence which makes it play a little faster but perhaps also a little smoother: 20 reada:ifa>=0thenreadb,c:poke36873+c,a:fori=1tob*13:next:goto20 23 ifa=-2andx=1then20 25 ifa=-2thenclr:x=1:goto20 35 fori=peek(36878)to0step-.05:poke36878,i:next 37 poke36874,0:poke36875,0:poke36876,0:end Delete lines 40-60. As a bonus, I converted the mentioned VVV song to my current music player format. The song might be slightly shorter than the one in the Basic listing, but thanks to being an interrupt driven routine in machine code, at least it doesn't stutter even if the harmonies still aren't 101%. http://www.cbm.sfks.se/files/pennylane.zip DASM source code available on request to anyone who wants it.
