A demonstration of the WebSID, a synthesizer that runs inside your browser (Google Chrome or Safari 6+ required, though most mobile devices such as iPads are ready to go) that pays homage to the retro sounds of the SID chip, a.k.a. the audio module of the Commodore 64. The trademark pulse width modulated waves provide a testament to deep, heavy bass lines while playing chords on the top keyboard will result in the trademark arpeggiated lines so typically associated with old school video games. For further sound sculpting, a high res filter and echo have been added to turn the WebSID into a chaotic drone machine.

NOTE : the audio glitches in the video, but is a side effect of the screencast, no such glitches are present in the actual application.

You can play with the WebSID directly by following this link :
