“The Definitive SID Virtual Synth. Harness the iconic sound of the Commodore 64 in any DAW. Get inspired with 350 sounds by the most famous C64 composers and demoscene musicians”
Welcome to Impact Soundworks‘ first synthesizer plugin: inSIDious. This flawless recreation of the legendary SID sound chip allows you to create 8-bit, C64-style chiptunes with stunning accuracy – or take it into the modern age with huge basses, cutting leads, and blazing arpeggios.
Meticulously hand-crafted by veteran game audio composer and SID user Mike Clarke, inSIDious captures all the character, warmth, and idiosyncrasies of the chip whose influence can still be heard in pop, EDM, and game music today.
Get the sounds you want fast with a single-screen, easy-to-use interface sporting three independent digital oscillators and an analog-modeled filter. Or, check out the 300+ snapshots including 8 Artist Banks from legendary Commodore 64 composers and demoscene artists.
