MIDIbox synth SID is a planned non-commercial & "DIY-only" based on the sound chip of Commodore 64.
In addition to the basic functions of the SID (3 oscillators, triangle / saw / pulse / noise waveforms shuffled, gnrateurs independent of the amplitude envelope assignable, sync & ringmodulation, a Filter low / band / highpass / notch 12db multi-state), this synth has:
* 2 Additional envelopes with non-linear curve that can be assigned Pitch, Pulsewidth and Filters
* Additional 6 LFOs with various waveforms, which can be assigned Pitch, Pulsewidth and Filters
* Fine Tuning
* Pitch Bender
* Portamento / Glide function
* Optional Oscillator Synchronization
* Arpeggiator (a SID * must * have arpeggiator year
* Poly, Mono and Legato Mode
* Free controller assignments to Modulation Wheel, Velocity and Aftertouch
* Wave and CC sequences, which allows longer perceived sounds (wavetable)
* The "wavetable sequencer" can be combined with the arpeggiator to realize complex textures
* LFOs, Envelopes, Wavetable, Arpeggios MIDI clock sync via external
* Up to 8 CV outs: 12 bit resolution (in experimental state)
* OS independent SysEx editor based on JSynthLib
* BankStick support (128 sound patches per stick)
* Can be used as file player. Sid
* Minimum area of control
* Possibility to control up to 4 SIDs
* Total control surface (such as photo)
The control surface is excellent!
Accs direct all controllers
and more good DIY project, c is you who shall decide the ergonomics!
L is the SID chip which gnre all sounds .....
So the sounds are quite Chip (8 bits) relement but effective! Even big enough for the low!
Although sr, the DIY aspect makes it possible to make the synth's Manir, and it's great!
Particularity the filter is used with an external audio input!
Level quality-price does not apply because you're the manufacturer!

See the opinion of Gilles (he says everything else)
Hard to program, and finally it depends if you step1 CS version (one screen and five buttons) or step3 (with a control panel).
Against the site by Thorsten Klose (www.ucapps.de) explains very well what there is to it, from construction to the production of sound, and French please!
Mega bass! Ultra fat stacks if SIDs
Otherwise a lot of video game sound effects are possible, which makes it fun.
Depending on the chip, it is now possible to get you close to the sounds of TB303! Version 2 promises a lot with the sequencer.
Assembled in a few days, it broke the sidstation of tinkerers. If you can only hold a soldering iron, it's good you can get started. Super good value for money. The hard part is finding the Commodore to bone. Buy the kits, unless you take the head to seek how to make a circuit (which I did but I had an electronics lab available).
