SID Bass: Jeri Ellsworth’s FPGA-based SID keytar

I haven’t heard of Jeri Ellsworth in a while but every time her name pops up around my news feed is because she’s done something awesome.

This time she has made an hybrid bass guitar-SID chip thing, controlled by an FPGA and using a real SID chip to play the sounds (from both the strings and the Commodore keyboard).

Enough blabber, check out an interview and demo on the first part of this video:
