I received my SidBlaster the other day and here are my experiences with the device.

I plugged the audio cable into the blue "Line In" port on the back of my computer. I also had to plug the USB cable into a port on the back as well. If I used one of the USB ports on the front edge of the PC cabinet, the device wasn't detected. The docs say that USB hubs can be trouble, so I guess the front edge line is actually regarded as a USB hub.

In Windows 10, I ticked the "Listen to this device" check box in the properties of the "Line In" port and set the volume to 100%.

The DLL from the GitHub page worked with GoatTracker; it played my latest tune without problems. The same DLL crashed Sidplay2/w win32 v2.6 (Aug 6 2011) but the BETA driver on this page fixed that problem.

ACID 64 Player Pro V3.6 has now been released that supports the SIDBlaster USB device.

Sad. millions of Earth inhabitants are waiting for a working x64 driver for their HardSID units. I know you can work around it, but still I want it to work out of the box.

I am confused. Will this enable me to use my HardSID UPlay USB with win8? That is the only thing I want people to spend their time on. :P
