Last in the Sound Atax series as far as I know. Patched it this morning
while enjoying my coffee. :) There were quite a few access faults to
fix, the routine to draw the analyser wrote to invalid memory locations,
the sin table access in one of the hidden parts used .l to read the sin/cos
values witout clearing the index register which of course wasn't exactly
good. Other than that not much had to be done but fixing those problems
took quite a while!
There are 2 hidden parts which could be activated by pressing right/left mouse
button during loading, these can be enabled with CUSTOM1 and CUSTOM2.
They aren't anything special though, just some bog-standard vector routines.
To select the tunes press keys F1-F10, this is mentioned nowhere in the
All tunes have been crunched with ByteKiller, I have relocated the decruncher
and added an error check, WHDLoad will quit with an appropriate error message
if decrunching fails. The executables are crunched with Defjam Packer 3.2,
I have relocated these decrunchers as well.

Enjoy it from HD and have a nice weekend everyone.
