ALM has introduced the Sid Guts – a new Eurorack module basd on the sound generator chip used in the Commodore 64.
The MOS Technology 6581/8580 ?Sound Interface Device? chip, aka the ?SID?, was the sound generator chip used in the Commodore 64 home computer. The SID, by the means of 3 wavetable oscillators, a real analogue multi mode filter, an ADSR and various cross modulation options, provided the soundtrack to a generation of computer gaming.
The Sid Guts takes the legendary SID chip and tailors it into the Eurorack modular environment. By use of a real SID chip, the classic sound is taken in a new direction with the levels of direct and voltage control only a modular system can offer.
in this video, Danielle of the MIDI Manufacturer’s Associates demonstrates how devices separated by 30 years of technological development can communicate because of their common support of MIDI.
The Commodore 64 is running the rare Sequential Circuits Music Sequencer, which is a hardware-based add-on that also adds MIDI IN & Out. The iPad is running Animoog, and connects to the C64 via an iRig MIDI interface. Continue reading →
