ISW inSIDious


Product details :

This is the definitive SID chip plugin! With this virtual synth created by Mike Clarke, you can harness the iconic sound of the Commodore 64 in any DAW. Get inspired with 350 sounds by the most famous C64 composers and demoscene musicians, like Chris Huelsbeck, Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway, Jason Page, Mark Knight, and more.

inSIDious has been developed over 5 years by Mike Clarke, a veteran video game musician and programmer, who spent his formative years playing Commodore 64 games and listening to their music. It was this music that set him on his career path, giving him huge respect for and admiration of the SID chip and the sounds that it could produce.

After using SID sounds in many productions over the years, Mike felt that none of the existing VST emulation attempts were anywhere near suitable as a replacement for his HardSID Quattro sound card (containing 4 actual SID chips). So, he took it upon himself to create his own emulation to be as close as possible to the real thing.

As a result, inSIDious is unlike the many ‘SID-like’ VSTs in existence, which have the basic waveforms and little else. Instead, it is a re-implementation of every feature of the chip as accurately as possible; this includes even ‘bugs’ and quirks which help give the chip its iconic sound!
