The making of a new bassline demo with MIDIbox SID V2. This major update can conrol up to 8 SID soundchips with four PIC microcontrollers, connected to a CAN network. There are 4 dedicated sound engines for Leads/Basslines/Drums and polyphonic multi sounds, which can run on any PIC core as desired.
In this demo, four 8580 SIDs are used (...but my own box is fully stuffed, it just wasn't required to use the remaining ones)
The first core plays drum sequences, the second core two independent bassline sequences.
The sequences are interactively selected from a MIDI keyboard, and sound parameters like CutOff/EnvMod/Decay are changed with faders/joystick/Control Surface.
The Audio Output of the SID which plays the lower octave bassline is feedbacked to the Audio Input for increased resonance and distortion.
You listen to pure and unique SID sound - and it is sequenced live! Only external EQs, compression and delay effects have been added.
