Is there a SID player/emulation for ST?

Recommended Posts

Is there a SID player (emulation) for the plain ST? (Not STE or Falcon)

 

There is such thing for the 8bit Atari / Pokey. So given the much greater CPU performance of the ST/68K I could imagine quite acceptable playback quality ..

Oh wow. This was almost exactly what I was actually hoping for.

I did just a few tests with a a few High Voltage (HVSC) SID and PSID files.

 

ST with 12khz .. quality is not groundbreaking but still quite fair!!

 

The player also has a nice yet simple to use UI.

 

Thanks for the tip!

I think that's the one I used before (only on emulator though) and it didn't work properly on STE setting but worked fine on STFM, more than fine as I remember being really impressed.

 

It's no trivial thing to emulate a SID, not even the Amiga has that sort of complex filtering available in hardware so the 100 most remembered C64 game tunes demo for Amiga 500 etc was quite an amazing achievement. I am sure the same guy went on to write the excellent C64S DOS emulator which also does SID sound using PC beeper hardware, the ST SID player is a LOT better than that lol.
