Descriptions:
After awhile testing this software. I remember there is alot of hidden stuff here!
for example: press with your right mouse key on the box "Demo version" and you will get CPU meter

There is alot of other things, which also is working, but need some kind of password and such!
BB 0.89, feels kind of very complete, and very buggy. I made it crash only one time(!)
The design is quite nice.

When you come to edit the sounds, we actually get to this trackers biggest "low". its very poor, and simple. at least you can make some delay fx, and of coz a wave.
But then in the tracker you have some FX too choose between, you have 2 ways. other you write it your self in the tracker. Or you have a place to choose the stuff you wanna add. which is kind of very unique. saved some time for manual writing I guess :)
so the testing results are quite this:

Highs:
* Easy get along
* FX Choice bar
* STE Digi (1 channel doh)
* The Design

Lows:
* Buggy, sounds have troubles to quite sounding. Don't press Stop again!!
* Sound editor, Too limited
* To much hidden stuff.. I wish they could be recovered!
* The Author lost the Code!! last version was 0.9x and lost in space...

Description:

When I recently tested this tracker for real. I got quite confused
it all looked very different. esp. when it comes to patter+track editor.
But after a short while I understood it worked like Maxymizer. you created a pattern and then use it whenever you want.
Another change is, instead of you write your notes down scrolling. you work in sidescroll. took couple of minutes, for me to understand why my drums didnt sound right. you only have 7 Lines but in 4 columns in the pattern editor. and you work in like. Step 1. column 1. step 2 is column 2. etc.
When you come along with it. It become quite nice way to work!

The sound editor, is very nice made! alot of fx and you have many ways and possiblitys to edit your sounds! to be honest, this tracker may even beat Triplex on the fingers here! I dont really understand why this tracker have been in the shadows. The Sid emu, is very clear and nice preformed! infact I like the sounding this tool gives!

Highs:
* The Design
* Sound Edior
* Tracker Editor (flexible)

Lows:
* Only 1 Sid channel (A)
* No Digi
* Little to much limitation in Pattern Editor more FX on each note Please
* Where is the next version with STE features? Lost in space?

Here we have the most flexible tracker on Atari.
You can edit your sounds, your patterns how ever it fits to your taste!
only your knowledge + imagination is the limits...
It is very confusing in the start to get along with this tracker. too much at once, but give it some time, and test your way. In earlier versions, you could crash the tracker too easy while playing with the sound editor. This is now limited! you cant add too crazy values any more
So this should been the newbie release in my opinion.

Highs:

* 3*Sid
* 2*STe Digi
* Timer Control
* SNDH Save
* Still in Development!

Lows:
* Skills Needed
* more space for Sound Editor (gfx way)
