It might as well have been the first music disk with own made compositions and covers. FAC Soundtracker 1.0 did not exist yet and it was normal to steal everything you needed from any software you could sink your teeth in. However, FAC and the makers of FAC Demo 2 were already around.

Because Le-Ti Sony Master lacked a tracker and possibly wanted to show off their musical skills to the world, this set of two single sided disks is filled with music written in basic. FM-Basic, as the music was to be played on the FM-PAC, back then only MSX-Music cartridge around. This is most probably the reason why they picked this somewhat strange name for a set of disks.

The music can't be compared to what later groups did with the trackers that emerged a little later, so we must see (and hear) this music in the 1989 mindset. In that light this music collection probably brings back some feelings of nostalgia, rather than judging the quality of it. The music can be selected with the cursor keys and the space bar. Once a track gets selected, a seperate basic program will be loaded which contains the music and sometimes some graphics. By pressing ctrl+stop you'll go back to the music menu. Tip: If you happen to have two diskdrives, you can insert both disks.

We hope that people from back in the day can shed some anekdotes about this production in the comments as most of us were still kids and information was scarce.

Oh, yeah! ... Seems that this "Old new stock" series is really needed, because this brings back memories that were already gone! This was probably the first music disk I ever saw. I think Japanese were better doing MSX-BASIC music, but I remember I had great fun with these disks by changing the instruments to the songs. What a real flashback experience. Smile
