Simplest way of testing a stereo SID

A friend is doing some repair work on my commodore machines. I'd like to send over some software to him that allows him to easily test whether stereo SID features works as they should in some machines. So.. Can someone recommend a stereo SID production that allows the user to change base address of the second SID? I seem to remember that there were some, but can't remember what.

Preferably some music demo or so, and preferably also something that won't sound totally fucked up on the wrong sid revision. He is not a musician so I don't want to tell him to load some music editor that supports stereo SID and fiddle with that, as that would be too complicated for this purpose. Just something that he can load and set the base address and then see if he gets proper sound out of it.

Maybe this one? Stereo of '11 [2sid]? There you can choose between three addresses.

Thanks a lot!

(8580 was specified there.. If someone knows a production that is known to sound OK on both 6581 and 8580 I am still interested to hear about that.)

in vice test repo is some simple program that just plays beeps left and right: https://sourceforge.net/p/vice-emu/code/HEAD/tree/testprogs/SID.. - its probably easy enough to make it work with different base addresses (currently $de00)
