SID sounds in the Embedded Computing Universe...


Wow, I just read from Vorc that there is a project that takes the Commodore 64 SID sounds to the Embedded Computing world. How amazing is that ?

It's called the Jester, and it is a sound emulator based on the 6581 SID chip, the cool thing is that it's written entirely in VHDL so the thing is making sounds with real oscillators, envelope generators, modulators and filters.

To drive this, you need any Altera Nios II Development Board with a Nios II processor to emulate the 6510 instructions. Hmm... What I don't really get is that it hosts a 24bit audio codec with two inputs and two outputs... haven't really digged in.. In the site there is a PDF file and some schematics..
