sidplay2 is the new generation of SID emulation.
sidplay2/w is my Windows front-end to the sidplay2 emulation.
sidplay2/w currently supports normal soundcard output and the
sidplay2 needs special drivers for the HardSID. These are available from the HardSID
page of the sidplay2 home page.
Or straight to the download.
sidplay2/w uses a different configuration file than SIDPLAY/Windows,
sidplay2w.ini, so it is recommended that you go over all the Settings
options and enter your preferences. The mixer and filter configuration
are disabled in this release. sidplay2/w uses more CPU than
SIDPLAY/Windows, due to the more exact emulation. It is less tolerant
to sidtunes that would not run on a real c64, hence some of your sids
may not work. Be sure to use the latest version of the
High Voltage SID Collection.

History, about the author:
My name is Adam Lorentzon. I used to study Computer Science at the
Royal Institute of Technology in
Stockholm, Sweden. For a long time I used SIDPLAY/DOS,
but when development of the DOS version stopped, and there was no support for real soundcards
(Gravis Ultrasound, that is :), I hacked this little Windows port of the ever-improving UNIX version of
The hack grew to include more features, and now it's been changed to use the sidplay2 emulation instead.
If you have any comments, suggestions, bug reports or questions about sidplay2/w, don't hesitate to mail me!
