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!

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) ;-)

Yeah, it's intentional design idea was to facilitate the hot switching between any two SID models so all the old and new demos would sound equally great on a single machine.

I have tried it with two 8580's (to hear my Singularity dual SID tune) and that was an awesome experience for me to finally hear it on real hardware.

BUT - the whole API for asking which models are installed, tell the SIDFX to swap them when needed etc. is kinda lost when used with two of the same model.

Of course if you go for easy install, no jumpers - I totally agree, this is the easy out of the box soltion.

That's actually why I wanted two myself.

One to mix models and one to have 2x8580

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.

I know for certain that I am going to try to use the fat old filter from 6581 combined with the new models extra waveforms and its more "digital" filter.

Reason for these kinda dual tunes? Because from our sales log, I can tell that there is going to be a LOT of people with exactly that setup in the scene.

I'm also interested in trying OLD+NEW SID for exactly the same reasons (composing with different types of filter ;-), but I only have 2 old SID machines and about 10 new so I first tried it with two NEW sids ;-)

Anyway, now I need to tweak DMC5.0+ for 6 channels ;-) In monitor (no sources ;-)
