When Future is about Nostalgia...

What is SID? And 64?

The MOS Technology 6581/8580 SID (Sound Interface Device) is the built-in Programmable Sound Generator chip of Commodore's CBM-II, Commodore 64, Commodore 128 and Commodore MAX Machine home computers. It was one of the first sound chips of its kind to be included in a home computer prior to the digital sound revolution.

Together with the VIC-II graphics chip, the SID was instrumental in making the C64 the best-selling computer in history, and is partly credited for initiating the demoscene.

The SID has U.S. Patent 4,677,890, which was filed on February 27, 1983, and issued on July 7, 1987.

The music of Sid 64 is not really made using this sound generator chip -- instead, 80's synths are... (Charles loves Oberheim!) The goal is to perpetuate the spirit of the music developed at that time. A real tribute to this era of epic and melodic electronic music made with computer and synths.
