Project SIDFX (formerly known as SIDFIXER)

Sorry for spamming you all, but regarding the DUAL SID hardware module SIDFX:

I mailed all PRE-ORDER contacts tuesday and I still miss a reply from 33% of you... please check your spam folder/email if there is any mail from sidfx-preorder@kick-ass.dk (16th december)

Thanks in advance.

There will be a registration site up shortly... so if you didnt pre-order/registrate already, you can also just mail me directly on the sidfx-preorder@kick-ass.dk mail address.

Cheers and merry X-mas to everyone!

Just installed mine. I had some troubles attaching the alligator clips to the CPU, due to the (Swedish) char rom and kernal rom sitting on some kind of extra little "board" (e.g. higher up than just straight into sockets at the motherboard). This C64 is from 1984 (Assy 250425). It was bought like that so it is not some hack. Anyway.. Using some force and slight bending worked in the end, and it seems to run fine as far as I can tell. Good!

One thing that I find very nice is that I can now use headphones straight into the jack in the C64. :) A bit funny to hear different SID revisions in each ear. Makes for a kind of stereo effect in itself, even on all those mono tunes. ;)

Yeah I think that I'll set myself up for another one... hopefully another batch in the making.. as previous peepz stated... a 8580 + 8580 machine would be sweet as well... My initial purchase was to minimize the need to swap machine due to SID... but a machine for stereo-SID would be sweet as well.. :)

Btw. I foresee and recommend the following:

SID socket #1 : 6581
SID socket #2 : 8580

so we have a standard for how we make stereo tunes if we combine the models in a tune.

Ha, that's exactly my config right now. But, since the there's this API, it shouldn't matter since the player software can ask the SIDFX where to send the 6581 and the 8580 parts of the mixed 2SID tune.

Also, will you create a facebook group for support and stuff?

SIDFX has a Facebook page already, but yes I am creating an API/support group too.

CreaMD: If you could adapt to Sync then I could provide some sources.

I have used Sync once in coop with Agemixer (National Park Grave Danger) it was okay to use, but it wasn't DMC5.0 ;-/

Quote: Xiny, I hope you make a lot of stereo/sixchannel recordings with this one ;-) Btw. I got mine too, it's awesome, although I was said it's primary purpose is *NOT* to have 2 new SIDs inside (...coz if I wanted that I could go with some cheaper solution.) Problem is, that I'm not very keen on soldering and stuff and this one is cute and easy to install I had to have one) ;-)

Hah :) I think I have recorded the *biggest* 2SID so far with my existing device :) But with the SidFX, I can configure a bit more "on the fly".

One cool thing to do would be try to see/hear if it's possible to put an existing 2SID into each of the sockets and then have a 4SID :)
Just as long as you can set the addresses for each SIDs it _should_ work.

More than 2 sid would be revolutionary ;-)

So, in best case you'll get a 4SID that no one else can listen to. In worst case you'll fry 4 SID-chips.

Yeah, that sounds like a great risk to take.

Tao: No worries, I have played with this thought before and nope nope, it won't happen.
