SidTracker 64 vs Waldorf Attack for iPad

June 17, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on SidTracker 64 vs Waldorf Attack for iPad 

Can’t wait for the SidTracker 64 to be released on appstore? Or maybe you think it is a viable alternative. Find out more in this compelling head to head battle!

SidTracker64 is the ultimate chiptune production package tool for the iPad. It emulates the SID sound chip from the dominating home computer of the 80s – The Commodore 64.

Get started immediately with the bundled songs and sounds in various styles, from old skool bleeps n blips to new school with multi speed and advanced table editing. Explore, remix and make new songs based on the old classics c64 game tracks “Commando” by Rob Hubbard or “Blood Money” by Fredrik Segerfalk, and the brand new youtube remix hit of the “True Survivor” Kung Fury soundtrack, all included in the app.

SidTracker64 is a retro-style music creation tool and synthesizer combined with modern features such as midi keyboard and controller input, Audiobus 2 and Inter App Audio for recording in your favourite DAW-app. Midi clock in lets you sync to other apps and hardware drum machines and synthesizers, such as the Elektron Analog Four.

SidTracker 64 can be used for live looping, making complete songs, and the minimum latency makes it suitable for live use. Export your music to Dropbox and e-mail as audio or .sid and even .prg files which you can run on a real Commodore 64.

Editing is based on hands on touch interaction or midi input instead of the hardcore style of direct data editing. Record live to a metronome or input notes step-style. Real SID-composing has never been simpler and more fun!

INSIDIOUS 6581 – new free Reaktor ensemble feat an emulation of the C64 sound chip

June 1, 2015 · Posted in Uncategorized · Comments Off on INSIDIOUS 6581 – new free Reaktor ensemble feat an emulation of the C64 sound chip 

Mike-Clarke-INSIDIOUS-6581-700x573

Mike Clarke has released INSIDIOUS 6581, a free Reaktor ensemble that features a near-perfect emulation of the extraordinary Commodore 64 sound chip, the MOS SID 6581.

No attempt is made to create a ‘better’ SID. No features are enhanced or improved. This is not the usual ‘SID-like’ or ‘8-bit style’ synth. This is an attempt to recreate the real thing as closely as possible.

INSIDIOUS 6581 features

  • Three channels with Triangle, Square/PWM, Sawtooth, Noise and combined oscillators.
  • Ring modulation and hard sync.
  • The classic SID saturating filter that is incredibly important but missing on most emulations.
  • LFOs and envelopes for pulse width, pitch, amplitude and filter cutoff.
  • Step table at up to 50Hz.for that genuine sound.

The ensemble is a free download from the NI Reaktor User Library.
