about

This is probably the most complicated track on the album. In fact, I'd venture to say that for both PHM and P8M. There's a lot going on in this song, and I needed room to do it. Konami realised the same thing about halfway into the 80's and designed a chip that would give them five sound channels in addition to the (very plain) sounds of the sound chip in the MSX (which is either a General Instruments AY-3-8910 or its clone, the Yamaha YM2149). The SCC was most popular with Metal Gear 2 and Snatcher, and it got used in a few arcade machines too. They later revised the SCC to the SCC+ with a few bugfixes.

I used this combination to do Sanctified. I'm really proud of how closely I was able to nail (ha. ha. ha.) some of the instruments and sounds from this track on the SCC. For example, the SCC can't produce whitenoise, and the AY puts out reasonably plain whitenoise, so the scratchy sound before the guitar blasts was interesting to create.

This is my girlfriend Jill's favorite song, so I dedicate this song on the album to her.
