“It is currently fitted with 3x Sid chips. 2x 6581s and a much sought after 8580R5

There is space for one more chip and i think this ought to be the 6581 R4AR but i have not managed to source one.

will put up samples in due course

This is a unique card and works in WinXP (32bit) only. It has some software which allows you to capture any sound from a sid track, note by note. You can also mute any of the 4 voices to isolate the relevant sound.” Link

“PLEASE NOT THIS ITEM IS FOR PC BASED AUDIO, NOT MAC. I AM LISTING THIS BECAUSE I BOUGHT IT THINKING IT WOULD WORK WITH A MAC. IF THERE IS MAC SOFTWARE AVAILABLE TO USE THIS I HAVE NOT FOUND IT.

Perfect working hardsid, in perfect working order.
This unit has two 6581 sid chips and two 8580 chips. The unit connects to computers via usb for complete control of all4 chips simultaneously.
features audio input for filtering external sounds and one output for each chip.
3 osc per chip means you can get 12 voices of sid heaven!!” Link

“This particular unit I have installed 4 chips, that include 3 8580 and 1 6581 chip. As you can see by the pictures, these are easily user swappable and you can put your own chips in there. Sids vary wildly from revision to revision and even from chip to chip so you may want to swap some of these out for your own chips if you have a supply. The only chip that is questionable is chip 3, it runs oddly on some sids and the filter seems less usable than the other chips. The hardsid itself works fine as using a different chip in that socket shows no problems.” Link

“The ultimate real SID synthesizer. Can hold up to 4 real SID chips. Mine comes with 3 so one slot free for your choice of SID chip (6581/8580/6582). You can buy SID chips from the HardSID site for 15 EUR, probably less from eBay. Each SID can be played by its own VST front end, alowing full intergration and crazy realtime control from with your DAW (Ableton Live, Cubase etc).

Better than a Elektron SID Station for various reasons:

* Full DAW intergration with VSTi control
* Up to 4 real SIDs
* 8000Hz update rate on all SID registers (especially for the chip tunes hardcore!)” Link
