C64 SID tunes on a VIC-20

Here’s a rather interesting project I was reading about on the Denial Vic-20 forums. It’s a Commodore 64 SID convertor written for the VIC-20 which uses Aleksi Eeben’s SID emulator. It’s still a WIP, but the author, Kananga, has release a selection of converted C64 SID files for playback on a VIC-20!

You can run them under emulator with VICE64 but I was keen to run them on an actual VIC so I copied the files to my SD2IEC and let my VIC/VC-20 sing just like it’s big brother c64.

You can read all about it download the sample files here – http://sleepingelephant.com/ipw-web/bulletin/bb/viewtopic.php?t=5586

…and here’s a quick video of me messing around with it.

Can’t wait for the finished thing, would be great to get Crazy Comets playing on a VIC.

  1. Thank you so much for the heads up,I had no idea new tunes had been releases. Love Crazy Comets so let see if the ol’ VIC can sing.

    Many thanks again.

    Kind regards
