Some interesting Facts about SID

SID stands for Sound Interface Device. It is a chip that you find in Commodores 8-bit computers like VC 10, Commodore 64 and Commodore 128. Bob Yannes is the creator of the chip. He was an employee of the MOS Technology company that made the chips for the Commodore 8-bit machines. The SID sound is known from the era for giving its special synth sound. Many artists uses it today. Amiga machines however doesn’t have a SID chip. But many game developers uses SID sound as Amiga inspiring sound which it not correct. There are games from the late 80s and also some recently games for the Amiga platform like Worthy which you can watch on Amitopia TV here that uses similar SID sounds. But on the Amiga the games uses its own format and then uses samples from Commodore 64 SID tunes. Check out the video also below.
