i uploaded a fresh capture of this dos demo, you can watch at at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JKm0hBGbC4, and here is a description i write, explaining why.
this demo from PC DOS times is quite obscure, but we have a fond memory of it primarily because of its banging drum and bass soundtrack, which was so revered at a time that was even included on internal CD compilation of selected demoscene music, and was rinsed on our parties and events at a time. it was made by artist signed as 'TRE' (signed also as K†re Frisvold in infofile), it was made in FastTrackerII XM format and included with demo, and it was called 'SYNC'. we are not involved nor know any of them.

although this demo is not something spectacular, it still provides some abstract visuals that are synced to and accompany the music, sometimes even having some sense :) if i would need to explain it, its somewhere between old lowpoly demos and 3d games of early 90s, but released among the times of 3d flybys of late-90s. it certainly feels a bit sketchy, which is more or less ok for an unfinished prod at any demoscene party period, but, if you like the music, all that becomes less important, and this demo becomes something closer to audio visualisation demos like ones that jormas did, with less style though ;)

technicaly, this was captured with recent version of DosBox-X, which has become quite mature platform for emulating not only MSDOS but also lots of 90s hardware, like GUS and VOODOO, and it does it quite accurate, so i will probably make and upload more captures with it. for this particular rendering i've set up cycles/s to 300000, which should approximate P2 @ 500Mhz, a configuration similar to what we had watched it at a time of its release in 1998. demo runs at 640x400 and video is upscaled to 1280x800 to enable better quality youtube encode.
