A high speed construction video of a MIDIbox SammichSID synthesizer.

From the MIDIbox website:
sammichSID was designed to be the “no excuses” MIDIbox SID synthesizer kit - i.e. for all those people who want a MIDIbox SID but consider building it with modules too time-consuming, too newbie-unfriendly and/or too hard to design and construct a control surface, and where MB-6582 is too expensive, too daunting and/or too hard to source all the parts.

sammichSID therefore has the following design constraints/features, which support each other:

* cheap
* small
* DIY newbie friendly
* minimal control surface
* single “walwart”/AC adapter supply, no C64 PSU brick!
* stereo SID, optimized for 8580/6582A, 6581 optionally supported
* “sandwich-style” stacked PCB design, no wires!
* laser-cut 3mm acrylic case by Ponoko, customization possible
* industry standard 2×20 character LCD with low-power LED backlight, customization possible
* common control surface parts used, customization possible

I forgot to add a music credit at the end of the video. The audio track is djynnx. You might know him from NOMMO OGO. If you don't, you probably should. His music is amazing.
