It's time to add the SID tunes!
The Commodore 64 uses .MUS and .SID files which contain 6502 code in them. That's a lot for a little microprocessor like the Propeller to have to handle, while reading the music from the microSD and generating the tones. A simple conversation program
was written to convert .SID files into something very easy to process on the Propeller, making this SIDplayer possible.
The good news is that a TON of SID tunes have already been converted for you!
Here's two sources for them.Pick the ones you want from my personal collection:https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qwhixzvtlrvp1u1/stJtXVM87I/SID%20DMP%20filesDownload the entire collection:http://depositfiles.com/files/43nohb5bf
Create a folder on your microSD card called dmp
and copy all of your SID .DMP files into this folder.SID Emulation:
The Propeller is using an MIT licensed object called, SIDcog. SIDcog is a software emulation of the original SID chip written by Johannes Ahlebrand. SIDcog is an excellent sounding emulation, allowing many of the unique nuances of the 6581 to be replicated. More information about the SIDcog release can be found here
