Music Editor for Oldschool Mind

Hi there,

Say, if I, hypothetically, would like to make SIDs again, what actual player would you recommend? I did my last SIDs in 1995 of so and been using Future Composer and Music Assembler…
Nice sound and some userfriendliness would be appreciated. :-)

Thanks,

Peter / Raze

Question is if you want to use a C64 or your ipad, or modern computer? :)

Good question. On a 64 it‘s the original feeling, but I‘m open for everything as long as it‘s „what you hear is what you get“. 😄
I‘ve used Cubase, ProTools and real synthesizers in real life so it can be specific in sound design.

Sidwizard on C64 or goattracker on PC. Both modern(ish) players that can produce state of the art sounds, and oldschool enough that it wont be totally alien.

Welcome back :)

Some (newer) good options:

C64:
SID-Wizard V1.8
SID Duzz' It V2.1.7

iPad:
SidTracker 64

PC:
GoatTracker V2.76
CheeseCutter 2.9.0

I am sure the SID Lords have more tips.

Groepaz! 🙂🙃
Thanks for the info, had a quick look at SidTracker 64, awesome.
Will check to other options as well, but I like the option of mobile composing with the iPad.
Thank you guys!

Let me mention SID Factory II as a modern tool for SID composing: https://blog.chordian.net/sf2/

If you're looking for something to get into easily, there are tons of Goattracker tutorials out there, including an official Goattracker manual. They provide a lot of explanations on how it works, and I can run you through some of the basics if you want. I look forward to hearing what you make!
