General information

What is SIDPlayer?

SIDPlayer is a replayer program for C64 music (“SID tunes”) for BeOS and Unix. You can think of it as being a stripped-down C64 emulator that only emulates the processor and the sound chip of the C64. SIDPlayer can be used as a stand-alone player or, under BeOS, as a plug-in for CL-Amp and SoundPlay. Under Linux it also supports the SID option of the Catweasel MK3 PCI card. SIDPlayer is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).
