USB64 SID Slave!

Petter Lindquist a.k.a. Hevosenliha of  MuMu21 has made a great tool for us lovers of pure, unadultered SID sound, but who also love the convenience of today’s hardware.

Using an IDE64 interface (or a home made cable that, allegedly, costs 10 euros to build), a server-type tool on a C64/128 and a modified version of Goattracker, USB64 Sidslave lets you make tracks in GT but have the sound played out in real hardware!

So far running only on Linux, a Windows patch has been sent to Cadaver, creator of GoatTracker, to see if this can be implemented in Windows too (and I bet Mac OS X would work as well)

Here’s looking forward for new improvements on this cheap Hardsid-alternative. VICE support anyone?

Check out the video of this in action:
