Stunning Homebuilt Commodore 64 Music Synth
By James Grahame
Subatomic's MIDIbox SID is "a DIY a synthesizer with sound chips from the original commodore 64 personal computer from the 1980's. The synth is built into an original Commodore 64 computer case. And features 8 SID chips (4 stereo pairs). Each SID chip has 3 oscillators and a variety of other features like filters, ADSR, ringmod, sync. The synth has a very flexible (and simple to use) modulation matrix, LFO, bassline sequencers, and stores patches in presets."
It was recently featured as the MIDIbox of the week on Thorsten Klose's midibox blog. Beautiful stuff.
