Sidplayers on Android

There are many sidplayers for Android out there. BUT:
Do they use the same encoder/engine for sids?
The players i have tried use mono for the 3 channels. Is there any sidplayer that dont use mono? (as Sidplayer for windows)
What Android sidplayer is the most near/like sidplayer on windows?
Is there anyway to use windows sidplayer on Android?

The output of the SID is mono but I think you mean 2SID and 3SID support in SID players?

Did you try all the ones mentioned here:



You might want to run Deepsid in your web browser on your Android phone. It plays fine on my Android phone for 2SID tunes.

The best Sid Player for Android is Droidsound.

This plays not only Sid. It plays the most oldschool tunes from Atari, Sega, Nintendo, Psx and many more.

You dont need any other Player

Indeed, DroidSound FTW. It's unavailable at Google Play, sadly, so you search for bare apk somewhere. One minus is that player's options/quit widget is not compatible with all phone models (or maybe Android builds?) so you might miss it if you're out of luck. I'm running it on HTC Desire and I don't have it.

I mean:
The players on Android play the tune with mono. All 3 channels together.
But Sidplayer on Windows separarate them
2 channels in left ear 1 channel on right ear

I was not aware of that feature until now but I haven't seen it in other players. You have to enable the feature in Sidplay for Windows in the audio settings because it is not turned on by default.
