MIDISID Editor Released

US C64 sound machine gets Max4Live controller      28/03/24

Patreon supporters will have noticed a free selection of loops from the MIDISID this week, crafted by midierror utilising his new Max4Live controller. The MIDISID uses two Nano SwinSIDs to faithfully replicate the sounds of the lauded Commodore 64 sound chips, and comes with a 5-Pin din MIDI socket for control and playback. While you can menu dive on the machine, it's great to control all parameters from one place - and it only costs £6! 

More on the MIDISID
The MIDISID is a 6-oscillator synthesiser with a choice of 4 waveforms per voice, ADSR, filtering and modulations such as PWM and vibrato. It also has some advanced features like ring modulation and waveform sync. The SID ("Sound Interface Device") was designed for the 1982 commodore 64 home computer. It has many features and a distinctive sound. MIDISID uses two modern SID recreations (Nano SwinSID). MIDISID has three modes allowing you to play .mid files or plug in a MIDIcontroller such as a keyboard. You can choose from preset sounds or dive into the parameters, create and store your own sounds.
