Hello Shintaro,

SM> does somebosy know how I can produce SID alike sounds in PD?

as far as i know (not a lot i'm affraid) SID is a subtractive
synth based on triangle, square, saw and noise 8-bits signals.

there are also low-pass, high-pass, band-pass filters.
now the hard part is that weird resonance filter that make this
typical SID sound.

i don't think that emulating such a chip is hard but the way to
handle the "instruments", the chip is not the most important part as
the "power" of its sound has been mainly due to the trackers that were
controlling it (ADSR, LFO, "oldskool effects" ...)

SM> I know I should first try it by myself, but maybe somebody else has 
SM> done that before (of course i think..)

not me, but if you're willing to give it a try, let me know cause i
would be interested in making a such "l33t" patch ;)
