Blip Festival: A_SID Synth Workshop
Workshop participants will build and learn to program their own version of Christoph Haberer's open-source Atmel based C64 SID chip emulator. This is a very good emulation of the MOS 6581 with the difference of very simple serial control from your laptop, computer or microcontroller.
The first hour will be spent learning about basic electronics communication and building the kit.
The second hour will be spent learning basic programming methods and simple ways to start.
The third hour will be an in depth look at the underbelly of the MOS 6581 chip, how it is controlled by the C64 and other computers, and how music can be made by directly addressing the chip.
This is a 'beginner's' electronics and programming workshop. There will be no soldering, and no understanding of electronics or programming is necessary. A basic understanding of music is helpful. A laptop and 1/8" headphones are required.
Participants will leave the workshop with a working usb controllable breadboard A_SID Synth, and the knowledge to begin using it.
