Glory be to MidiBox.org

Postby Futureman » Fri Nov 28, 2008 3:56 am

Man.. I've now made a few projects with help from the kind people at midibox, (2 Sequencers) and I've just finished the gritty bit of another, and it's a killer.

I've built my version of one of their Sid synths, and this thing is a monster.

All the electronics are taken care of, now it's all cosmetic from here on in.
I'm planning on sticking it inside an old bang and olufsen stereo with a 2 octave keyboard. - kinda looks like a massive atari2600

It's got EIGHT SID chips under the hood, Which is the same sonic power as 8 Commodore 64's.. And it sounds mad! Each SID has 3 oscilators and 1 filter.. (24 oscilators in total)
You can run it in a super poly mode, which is 4 voice poly, with each voice being 2 SID chips (6 oscillators + 2 multimode analogue filters), running in true stereo.. Thats one massive polysynth!

I'm still playing with it, but it's 4:00am and I'm at work, so I thought I'd brag a little.

Maybe you could post some audio samples? I'd love to hear it.

Can you play that cool C64 game on it with the robots in the underground lair?

ummm... doesn't that describe 50% of commodore 64 games?

I've just found a funky thing it does, which is kinda like the korg monopoly with it's voice rotation.. except way better. Crystal Castles better watch out, at least I won't be stealing other peoples riffs. (We do steal samples of crappy 70's & 80's tracks all the time tho)
