SIDizer is a state-of-art emulation of legendary SID chip in a form of a modern software synthesizer. Using circuit modeling technology nearly allunique features of two versions (6581-8580) of SID chip among their famous flaws are accurately modeled. This emulation focuses on simulating nonlinear character of SID filter and mimicking special 6581 distortion that mainly influence the alternation of filtered signal in a real SID chip. It offers additional envelopes, LFOs , mod matrix and a routable bit-cruncher for adding extra lo-fi sound quality.
It is not only a powerful instrument for creating chip-tune style but it can produce a unique type of analog sound colored with harmonic distortion that is suited for creating bass, lead and drum sounds.

Q: Is SIDizer an oldschool chiptune synth or a modern VA synth? Or is it just a better emulation of the good old SID chip?
A: To be honest, this is not that simple. You definitely can emulate the SID chip in a very-very good and proper way. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. SIDizer can growl. It can bite, it can roar. And also it can purr and can scream because of a dead mau5. It is a very versatile and unique sounding synthesizer that worth more attention.

Q: How can I use SIDized presets?
A: First of all, you need Hypersynth SIDizer VSTi software to run on you computer.
It can be purchased at: http://www.hypersynth.com/sidizer.html Insert the synthesizer plugin on a channel in your DAW, then click on the FILE button and select LOAD PRESET (load individual preset) or LOAD BANK (load full bank).

Q: What is a VSTi?
A: Virtual Studio Technology(VST)is a software interface that integrates software audio synthesizer and effect plugins with audio editors and hard-disk recording systems. VST and similar technologies use digital signal processing to simulate traditional recording studio hardware in software.

    Are there are few selected patches available for free download to have a chance to fully evaluate your work here on my own instead of just listening to the (great!) demo track?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi Vincenzo,

    are there more details (like a patch list by categories) available. At the moment it’s like a well packed – but still black – box for me and I don’t know what’s really inside in detail.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
