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!

maybe an empty cartridge case will do the trick.

Just a small comment to the image with the two switches.

Switch #1 is:

LEFT: SID socket 1 ONLY
MIDDLE: AUTO/software API controlled
RIGHT: SID socket 2 ONLY

So, SID1&2 isn't really the correct label for center position unless you only want to have your configs that way of course :-)

SUCCESS!!! 100% SOLD OUT! The 400 units pre-ordered has been sold. The reserve of 80 extras has been sold out too.

It has been a long journey, loads of work hours - some more stressful than others to get everything out in time and still maintaining quality.

Hopefully the community will agree and tell us it was worth the effort

Now we can focus on getting the API documented and deliver some "well-working easy-to-include in your future projects" assembler code, so we can have SIDFX support in the awesome productions you make out there.

If you missed it and wanted a unit or two or an extra... TOO BAD ... or... actually, we have already had so many positive responses, that we have decided to change the old waiting-list into a wishlist, just in-case there is enough for a smaller 2nd batch at some point.

We won't promise it will happen, but sign-up if you wished you had been in for some units and wasn't. The list is empty from start, so your old profile, if you already was in the original, is NOT there.

Thanks for the awesome support for this project.

I've got my SIDFX mounted in the Datastorm 2017 compo machine and working great 👍🏼

One question though, is it safe to hot plug headphones or a (muted :) mixer board into the 3.5 mm jack, or does the C64 need to be powered off?

@MagerValp: Headphones, yes absolutely, no problem. Making "live" connections between grounded equipment is typically safe, but the (standard) C64 power supply is not grounded, so you could have a large difference in voltage potential between the C64 and the mixer. In this case I would make all the signal connections first and connect C64 power last. This goes for any ungrounded equipment.
