SID Sound Reloaded
« on: 00:14, 14 August 19 »
Hello fellow CPCists!


I did it again. Some SID stuff. Just some early demo (so far, CPC music has only used around 6% of the AYs capacity)

Greetings :)

Interesting! Is it 3-channel SID sample? Did you do that with a more advanced version of your sid software?

No, it's not a new song, it's Zap't'Ball loading screen adaptation (by Weee I guess?).

Actually, it's a version of THE LAST HERO by FUTURE FREAK of DEXION!
Also famous as "ARCANE THEME" (by Zetrix) on Amiga cracktros.

Hey BSC, this isn't a SID emulation. You programed that with you SID tracker, right?

Thanks! Yes, the engine can play 3 independent "SID" voices at once, each with it's own pitch and waveform and it's indeed an evolution of the AYAY engine.
The working title it AY³ or AYcubed :)

Exactly! I only knew it as "Arcane" until a few months ago. The SID version is a conversion from my (not WEEEs) Soundtrakker cover which
was also used in Zap't'Balls. I just found your rendition of The Last Hero on Youtube btw. Really nice!

Kind of. It's actually a more evolved versoin of my SID engine from some years ago. There's still no tracker, though ..
A real SID emulation is impossible on the CPC, but I think I came as close as you can get (maybe even closer in the future  :D )

Nice!


How much CPU time does the emulation take? And what do you mean by 6% of the AY capabilities?

Ok so it is like what I did for Imperial Mahjong I guess (which is, in all fairness, is inspired from what you did on your SID tracker!). Are the three channels on three different channels (that's what I do on IM), or do you mix them on one channel?

It is a really modest engine and takes all of the CPU time. No time left for anything else (a few raster bars or similar maybe)
