$` $      the comments plainly, without 's as i've asked. as a results i   $ '$
:  $      had to edit those votefiles, and the votes processing took twice $  :
:  $      as it should (i got a voteforms analyzer after all, no need to   $  :
`  $      paste comments/calc votes manually *finally*). in any case, this $  '
   $      kind of problems will be automatically eliminated on the next    $
   $      c r u e l i z a t i o n  voting, when the voting assistant util  $
   $      will finally be used. it will be more convenient for both voters $
   $      and me, since there will be only one possible way to fill votes  $
   $      and comments :D so i won't go any further on that.               $
   $        it is _really_ a pity people don't vote. a few very good tunes $
   $      in my opinion got disqualified just for nothing, because the     $
   $      composers did not bother to vote. come on people, is it _that_   $
   $      hard? well, at least it's three people this time, in comparison  $
   $      with _eight_ people from the last time. geez.                    $
   $        also, there is something to mention. one song in the pack was  $
   $      a half-remix (smeg's). there _is_ a rule, not to enter remixes   $
   $      or covers of any kind unless special rules say something on the  $
   $      matter. however, since this song was only part remix, i decided  $
   $      that it would not be fair to disqualify it, so i just took 25%   $
   $      off the score (see the results chart). that will be done in any  $
   $      future cases of part-remix/cover songs. a full remix/cover       $
   $      _will_ be disqualified.                                          $
   $        overally, the scores seem to be higher than before ;D perhaps  $
   $      it's the spirit of xmas getting into people :D. some comments    $
   $      are so _huge_, too :D . anyways, have fun on the holidays and    $
   $      happy new year to all of you ;D                                  $

   $  $
   $  $  *  great manipulation/use of the `pathetic' sample.. needs more
   $  $     originality.
   $  $  *  best touchtone solo I have ever heard :7
   $  $  *  Wave at his best :D It can be seen that the tune was rushed (alot
   $  $     of copy/paste) but it sounds great nevertheless :D Cool use of the
   $  $     'pathetic' sample.. I _knew_ someone will invert it that way :D
   $  $  *  hahahahaha, it's funny.
   $  $  *  a little cheezy, but theory and composition is incredible
   $  $  *  Hmm.. that poppy game music style again lost you some points. I
   $  $     still wanna hear something different. However, technically sound,
   $  $     well orchestrated... almost too perfect! You're damn good at what
   $  $     you do. ;)
   $  $  *  This remembers me some synths songs demo! funny.. good work
   $  $  *  simply astounding.
   $  $  *  WAVE is good as always. The quality of this tune is exceptional as
   $  $     always. Professional sound. It's a crying shame that it's so damn
   $  $     repetitive.
   $  $  *  Couldn't tell who was this by.
   $  $  *  Wave's usual groove. ;)
   $  $  *  excellent flippin' tuneage.  very clever use of the pathetic vocal
   $  $     sample.  wave's formula works well!!  i'd give my left breast to
   $  $     be able to track like this guy.
   $  $  *  As a foreword, I'm a "passive" scene member. I have only heard the
   $  $     Pools of Poison from you, and I saw that you're very popular on
   $  $     #trax. But I didn't know anything else about you. So I was shocked
   $  $     when I loaded up your tune... You are Jeroen Tel?!?! *THE* Jeroen
   $  $     Tel?!?! ... I don't know what to say. I could say something like
   $  $     "this is not fair. I might as well compete against Mike Oldfield,
   $  $     or Vangelis." But if I'm right, you're 24 now, so it's not *that*
   $  $     old... Or I could say something like "well I'll be this good too,
   $  $     after 9 years of tracking" (or even more? I don't know how long
   $  $     you have been tracking before Cybernoid) But you were this good
   $  $     already when you started. Stormlord, Supremacy... Brings back the
   $  $     memories of all those  years before I had my PC. So: I don't think
   $  $     I'll feel bad if you beat my tune (which you *will*). This goes to
   $  $     a lot of you out there: check out this tune. 1) A lot of patterns
   $  $     seem to be copied, but it's *not at all* repetitive. 2) *No*
   $  $     panning envelopes! But the sound is still very well placed in
   $  $     space. So instead of spending too much time on those little
   $  $     "technical" details (which, of course, can be a nice touch) try to
   $  $     concentrate on the melody and the overall feeling. This song grabs
   $  $     your attention, and never stops "talking". Damn my comments are
   $  $     too long. (note from c.c: you damn bet they are too long. this
   $  $     comment overloaded my program! so i had to put it in manually :D )
   $  $  *  wave man... you rock d=9
   $  $  *  Gaaf! Awesome song!
   $  $  *  Dammit Wave...I'm never gonna win one of these things if you keep
   $  $     entering. :) What else can I say? Nice, funky tune. Ugh, it
   $  $     doesn't end properly tho. I don't know if this is cuz I played it
   $  $     thru IT or not, so I won't take off a point.
   $  $     (note from c.c.: no no no no and no again. do _not_ play .it files
   $  $     in cp. do _not_ play xm's in impulse tracker. come on people! you
   $  $     expect to rate the damn song, and you don't even play it in the
   $  $     right tracker? maybe it will sound just as good as it sound shitty
   $  $     to you if you play it in the appropriate program, did it ever
   $  $     occured to you guys that play xm's in impulse tracker just because
   $  $     it's _easy_ to play on background? this is right for _all_ the
   $  $     voters, i hope you understand the responsibility. please play the
   $  $     songs in their original tracker whenever it is possible.)
   $  $  *  Your a goddam bastard WAVE!!.. what's the point of entering
   $  $     contests that u know that your're gunna win? =).. awsome song dude
   $  $  *  Another great WAVE tune! Problems: 1) YOU USED THE UBER-LAME
   $  $     'PATHETIC' SAMPLE@$#^$%#$^ 2) The song  gets boring and repetitive
   $  $     by the end of the song (m4v-pool syndrome -- starts out funky,
   $  $     gets boring by the end). 3) You didn't turn off channels 17, 18,
   $  $     and 19 at the end of the last pattern, otherwise it'd loop almost
   $  $     unnoticably.

   $  $
   $  $  *  Great tune. A bit on the lengthy side, and a wee repetitive. Nice
   $  $     leads, excellent panning. A bit quiet though. Nothing really
   $  $     stands out (except the bass, but who cares about that?!)
   $  $  *  Great tune. Love that bass :D Yannis, you rock. It's great to have
   $  $     you back :D hopefully you'll be as productive as ever and make
   $  $     more kicks ass tunes for our enjoyment :D.
   $  $  *  no offense, but i didn't want to listen to it all, but the parts
   $  $     that i did i liked alot =)
   $  $  *  Hmmm...eerie. Another kinda "empty" sounding song. Ah, there we
   $  $     go. Nice leads, good effects. Kinda repetetive tho. Reminds me of
   $  $     Purple Motion for some reason. (don't take that as a bad thing
   $  $     tho. :)
   $  $  *  First couple of patterns sound shitty, but after that it sounds
   $  $     great! Well done Yannis.
   $  $  *  Bravo. This was full of simple but good ideas, very very well
   $  $     implemented. I was really impressed by your leads, especially the
   $  $     magic that you do with that breath sample from pattern 14 on
   $  $     channel 8. I respect you, and like every tune you do. Maybe it's
   $  $     because (although it doesn't show) we're very much alike.
   $  $  *  a thoroughly enjoyable tune.  very impressive.
   $  $  *  You've done better... but I like the flute. :)
   $  $  *  Totally rocks as usual.
   $  $  *  This is nice but Looong matter. ¶:)
   $  $  *  Great tune. Yannis rules as always.
   $  $  *  Amiga style ! I loooove this kind of music!!

   $  $  *  Really a great tune. Liked the extra bonus tune too. Come on,
   $  $     please don't quit trackin'! :)
   $  $  *  Vergy good, greatly stuctured tune. Totally *ELiTE* ASCii also gave
   $  $     you a few more points from me :D great implementation of a gothic
   $  $     font. Cool secret tune :D
   $  $  *  very nice!
   $  $  *  very good except for annoying guitar part
   $  $  *  hey, it's nice. still, minor is always better. i surely would love
   $  $     it if i was a pink butterfly floating over even more pink world.
   $  $  *  panning! melody! very good.. but it gets cheezy towards the end
   $  $  *  Nice to hear some slow cute music for a change.
   $  $  *  I felt it a bit naive, but you try to track your thoughts! that's
   $  $     good!
   $  $  *  A bit "beepy"
   $  $  *  Now this is simply beautiful. Nice and laid back. Happy. Peaceful.
   $  $     Great progression. Guitar could be better, but is ok.
   $  $  *  The End... Game Over... ¶¦)
   $  $  *  Flawless.
   $  $  *  Cool mood
   $  $  *  NICE scalework.  This tune didn't strike me at first but then i
   $  $     noticed the impressive scalework and all that cool technical stuff
   $  $     that makes music, like, work and stuff.
   $  $  *  Great tune
   $  $  *  Nice intro. Flute melody I swear I've heard elsewhere. (Not
   $  $     another mod, but in RL). Well put together. Good effects. Very
   $  $     mellow and nice to listen to.
   $  $  *  awsome song dude... love it =)
   $  $  *  What can I say, I'm speechless. The only fault I can find in this
   $  $     song is that it sounds terrible in Win95 on my P5-100. Even
   $  $     through the distortion the beauty of this song shines through.

   $  $        [. 4.]  cgs-back.it   Cygnes             (15.1840)
   $  $
   $  $  *  just too pink
   $  $  *  good use of samples, good tune overall
   $  $  *  Nice spaced relaxing effect.. however, watch those pans from side
   $  $     to side, especially when the whole instrument is chorded. Makes it
   $  $     harder to listen too.
   $  $  *  I like this!
   $  $  *  30 hours? a long time... ¶:>
   $  $  *  I like this. Nice mixing, ok progression. Strings too loud -
   $  $     drowned out the choir. Bass keeps the whole tune flowing hicely.
   $  $  *  this one pulls out that happy sound rather effectively. a little
   $  $     repetitive, but nice.
   $  $  *  Very good. All the time that you spent on this one, it shows.
   $  $  *  Nice intro. Drums a bit quiet. The biggest problem: Too much stuff
   $  $     panning the same way at the same speed. You can hear the whole
   $  $     song move back and forth. A bit repetitive but quite nice.
   $  $     Okay ending.
   $  $  *  I liked this song.  Cept, the background could of been a bit less
   $  $     repetitive.
   $  $  *  I'm sorry, this song would've gotten a 17 if it didn't sound like
   $  $     shit in Windows 95 on my P5-100. Call me old-fashioned, but if a
   $  $     P5-100 can't play it correctly you need to work on your channel
   $  $     optimization. I.e. lay off the NNAs bud.

   $  $  *  grewvy
   $  $  *  tune and composition are great, but it gets a little cheezy
   $  $  *  I like it.. nice use of the cowbells! Catchy chord progression,
   $  $     but a little lacking in places.
   $  $  *  Good song! I like the bass!
   $  $  *  nice song.
   $  $  *  Cool tune, but that cowbell sucks.
   $  $  *  Reminds me of my old tunemaking times ¶:)
   $  $  *  Groovy
   $  $  *  clever tune with great progressions and a funky feel.
   $  $  *  Some good ideas here, I liked this one. I found the hihats to be
   $  $     too loud.
   $  $  *  Nice song
   $  $  *  This sounds like it wants to be a Wave tune, but it's not quite
   $  $     there yet. Kinda repetative. Nothing in this song really stands
   $  $     out much. Also, don't set your kick drum to anything other than
   $  $     center pan, or the song sounds off-balance. :)
   $  $  *  a little big repetative, but I love the name and you kick mad shit
   $  $     with those cow bells, so.. you rule =).. come in 2nd =)
   $  $  *  Nice progression, creative use of the cowbell, fun song. The
   $  $     percussion was rather weak in some areas, and on a few patterns
   $  $     the bass was panned really strangely.

   $  $  *  Wow. I like this one very much. In fact I think this tune is the
   $  $     best in this round. The 3/6 time singnature is unique, and when
   $  $     the drums came in it made my head bang... The first part (p0-5):
   $  $     is this that Anthrax tune? The second part (p20-3x) is terrible.
   $  $     It get's a little bit better from p31. In the main theme, on
   $  $     channel 1?, you play two sounds high (B-7, C-8), which sounds
   $  $     good. But when you step down to A# and then D# (pattern 55)
   $  $     they're missing. Too bad. Also, at the very start, try to
   $  $     apply the theory under the mystic name of "dynamic contrast".
   $  $     Or in plain English, make the accented sounds louder and the rest
   $  $     softer (maybe shorter too, with the Dxx command). And this one is
