The Mode Machines - SID Commodore 8 Bit Groovebox is built around the original MOS SID chip, as heard in the Commodore 64, at least in the first 300 units. (Initially, I wondered if this was emulation; it’s not. Now, it seems the 8580 would make more sense than the scarcer 6581, but these are apparently 6581s. After the initial run, they’re planning to switch to a Polish clone of the chip.) x0x control layout Step sequencing 3 expression knobs for macro controls of each patch Bundled editor software (see the video below, from earlier this year) NERD-PANEL, “a powerful interactive blueprint which enables you to address the chip one pin at a time – also a great educational tool.” 100+ Patches. 50+ Wavetables drum sounds/effects. Audio in, out; MIDI in, out. USB connectivity for MIDI control, too. Onboard display.
