Nicely done; the x-files theme like so many themes is just a very simple melody but when you here it you know within a few bars what it is; this would be one of those as well; thanks for sharing!.

Hi Trygve,

This certainly has an X files ring to it (great tv series by the way).
We will certainly check out the free Diva synth!

Very nice indeed Leo!! Really sweet, melodic piece. The solo guitar listed is "metal" but it seems there is another more jazzy one as well. Are there 2 solo tracks? Enjoyed this A LOT!! Take care. Greg
