Hi there!

Basically it does any SID tune. They will just sound 
more or less horrible ;-)

Hubbard doesn't do to well, I attached the Commando tune 
as my converter spits it out. Doesn't sound to well, 
even though I already doubled the resolution.

Main problems are that the TIA can't do all those 
precise frequency slides Hubbard uses to create 
"artificial instruments" and that one has to mix 3 
voices into 2.

I will work some more on improving the results first, 
before I will release everything. I have some more 
things on my ToDo/ToTry list. 

For example I'll change the SID player used as base for 
the conversion. Simple reason is, the current one I'm 
using can't play the "Temple of Apshai Trilogy" SID 
properly, which is why I started the whole thing... ;-)

And most would probably appreciate some user interface 
for the converter, currently I'm tweaking everything 
right in the source...
