Story
This is an old one:

I did it in the early 90's on my commodore Amiga, using Aegis' Sonix (a crappy music software with no real user interface from today's point of view) and only enhaned it with some added FX in late 2001. I love this mastertrack of Martin a *lot* and defenitely will attempt to do a modern version on my new hardware some day...

It`s tough to cover Parallax. Would you rather focus on its melody or on the fact that it`s pushing the capabilities of the underlying synthetizer to the max? Would you rather cover the concept behind it or the tune`s atmosphere? Amazing as it may sound, it`s tough do to all this at once in a single cover. Wisely, Michael didn`t try to do that, either. His focus was on recreating the notes and melodies as accurately as possible with sounds that mimic the original closely. But in the tradeoff he lost the atmosphere and the technical innovation. Still, the result is a great cover that I don`t think one can appreciate without listening to it more than once.
