SID-lovers! How about the whole HVSC on your mp3-player?

See: www.rockbox.org

Compatible with:
Apple: 1st through 5.5th generation iPod, iPod Mini and 1st generation iPod Nano (not the Shuffle, 2nd/3rd gen Nano, Classic or Touch)
Archos: Jukebox 5000, 6000, Studio, Recorder, FM Recorder, Recorder V2 and Ondio
Cowon: iAudio X5, X5V, X5L, M5 and M5L
iriver: H100, H300 and H10 series
SanDisk: Sansa c200, e200 and e200R series (not the v2 models)
Toshiba: Gigabeat X and F series (not the S series)

Among MANY other "Codecs" (OGG, FLAC, Musepack, WMA, AAC, MOD/xm, Nintendo-Stuff, even MPEG video) Rockbox also plays .sid! I checked it out for the past few days, and it's just fantastic!
There's a few bugs to be ironed out in the SID-player (see Bugreport FS#8287), but it's really well integrated into the GUI, you can put .sids in Playlists etc!
Only libsidplay, but since resid requires an FPU i guess it cannot be helped! ;-) Atleast it DOES have filter (unlike the last version of the iPodlinux SIDplayer I tried!)
This is especially fantastic for older players that are space-limited (like my 2GB Nano), because you can fit the whole HVSC on there in merely 280MB (yes, that is including FAT32 allocation-loss!)

That's not all: The Rockbox-project was started by Zagor of Horizon (they call him their "glorious leader" jokingly! 8) and Boogaloo (also HZ) is working on it as well. Even King Fisher of Triad is listed as a contributor! ;-)

People there don't seem to care much about SIDplay bugs (shame, Horizon! >:-), so if any of you SID-lovers with coding abilities feel the need to supply a patch, that'd be really awesome!.. ;-D

As always (see: iPodlinux) there's loads more stuff of debatable usefulness, shitloads of Games and some Demos... Unfortunately their text editor is pretty much absolutely useless, atleast on iPods with scrollwheel! <:-)
MPEG Video replay works fine though, as does JPG viewing and OGG replay. Those I'd consider the more useful features..
It has quite a few nifty ideas (such as showing the next track in the playlist or how much time you have left on your battery!), it is way way more userfriendly than iPodlinux and it is VERY customizable!
Go ahead, give it a try! They have a nice GUI installer! ;-) You need to have FAT32 though, so all Mac-Users with HFS-iPods are shit outta luck...

P.S: This wasn't posted into the c64 composing sub on purpose! I guess way more people have an mp3-player than just musicians! ;-)

it downloads the sids, as you play them.
if you never played galway/rambo, its not downloaded.

The new version allows the entire sid collection to be downloaded in the background while using the normal method of downloading when selecting a song

To revive this a bit :

I recently noticed (ok.. i noticed today.) that RockBox is now also supported on the Cowon iAudio M3/M3L! :D So from now on I'm a happy camper with added .ogg, gapless, .flac and .sid and .mod :D

weeehaaaa!

edit : btw.. i can truly say that .sids sound like total crap. ;)
