C64 sound on Parallax Propeller

in code by the machinegeek | 2 comments

The eight-core Parallax Propeller is capable of some pretty amazing things. One use developed by Johannes Ahlebrand is to emulate the famous Commodore 64 sound chip. His SIDcog V 1.0 code object allows the Propeller to accurately emulate an original C64 SID chip. With this code, your Prop can produce retro C64 game sounds like this.

Download the code object and examine the .spin files with a text editor to get an idea of what this detailed code can do. Sample programs are also included.

    Quite cool, I saw a guy the other day who had used FPGAs to recreate the chips used in a Atari ST and then put them onto a real ST board and it worked. I was amazed at that.
