Meet your master, SID chip!

category: general [glöplog]

Now that's what I would call a fat pulse modulated oscillator

While this is a "do want" for me, it does in no way harm my love for the SIDs.

Reference to SID was just an attempt to attract you in this thread, you know! (And I do not mean you as in you, nitro2k01, but you .. you know what I mean?)

Yes that was awesome. But there is one big diffrence to the SID! Its completely analog. And i kinda like the old good moog oscillators more..and imo filters plays a bigger part in sound sculpting than the actual oscillator.
I don't really get it. They come with different banks to change the sound, or you change it on the fly? What about effects like delay and reverb and chorus, do you change the oscilator to sound like that?
I'm completely cluesless about how to use this live :P
Oh, and why not just use a PC with a low-latency soundcard and a big CPU? Because analogue is better?
Analog is in some aspects technically better. But its more of a (good)taste issue.'

They dont come with different banks the thing is that you create the sound on the actual synthesizer and that is the whole point of it.

Effects like reverb and delay hasn't really got anything to do with the actual shape of the waveform the oscillator produces. Effects like delay and such are either handled by a separate module or a stand alone effect processor.
Heh ok. So in theory the Oscilator gives you "complete" freedom to create any raw waveform you like for post-processing and/or amplification?
Yes almost. You cant really create "any" wave form. You need(usually three) many oscillators added up to great really complex sounds. Mostly they just creat basic waveforms like square,triangle,saw and sinewave. Then they can be filtered and modified in different ways and then added to create rich harmonic sounds.
i don't want to know the price.

Lord Graga, you see, the module he was showing is just this little square.

You can feed its analog signal to other modules (filters, effects such as delay etc...) .. in turn you can feed just about anything as modulation for the oscillator. Everything is made of electrical signals in such synthesizers, which people call "modular synthesizers".

Each one is different, depending on the bricks you buy and integrate together.

zest, he mentions the price in the video ($399), you moron.

i was looking the video (only being a "light" synth addict) and it's just lovely

why don't you antiaudiophiles enlighten us

We cant. But a minimoog can :D
hm "i was looking the video"

that's some fine engrish

Ooh. Nnnice.

quite handy to carry to gigs too.

reminds me of ECA linker on the c64.. or defender, hehe.

someone should have told him just have modelled it in synthedit or reaktor.. and saved a fortune on dials + switches.

it's funny though, there's an advert for gforce when u watch the video.. they do nice emulations

I'd be surprised if anyone would actually pay for it. unless you were a big fan of the 6 million dollar , might as well get a big ol reel to reel computer tape to go with it..

$399.. not bad. but hey, I think I'd rather save space and what happens when it heats up, do you get analog "warmth" or can ya smell burning? lol

best left to people like Dr Bob Moog (RIP)

hmm, looking nice, but watch for new stuff at hardsid.com =)

nula : i saw that, not till april though.. I did ask them about it.. how about displaying a **** off sized copyright message when it plays sids for irresponsible losers who steal parts of sid tunes / melodys for their own commerical work. Alas they didn't like the idea.
