Description

This is the Sidplayer, a standalone device that allows plays sid files initially made for the C64 (psid files format only). You just grab the entire sid database from https://www.hvsc.c64.org/, drop the content on the root of a formatted fat32 microsd, connect your headphones, power up and you are done. You can start listening to the amazing chiptunes made for the great C64.

Update 11/11/2021:

Now the sidplayer is blutooth capable. You can solder a blutooth module and you will be able to listen to sid songs on a capable bt receptor.

Update 20/09/2021:

Some changes were made from the last design, now all the components are behind including the next, play/pause and back buttons.
Shipping time 2-3 days.

Update on 31/08/2021:

I’ve to rectify this… yes, you can grab the entire sid database from https://www.hvsc.c64.org and drop it into the root folder of the MicroSD, yes..But it will take longer to index each of the psid files and start playing.. I recommend that you put 100-200 sid files onto sd each time. Putting the 53.000 sid files into the SD will not be usable.

Also there is another source of sid files compatible in https://www.sidamp.com/
