Received my SID GUTS yesterday from Matthew at ALM, first impressions are before even plugging it in is that it's built like a tank, really well built, knobs good quality/nice feel. I managed to have a quick 15 minute play last night and the oscillator sounds amazing when the filter is fully open, I need to RTFM to get the most out of this module but so far very happy.
Here's a crappy, shakey, jam I did (I was pretty pissed) last night of the SID GUTS.

Many thanks to Matthew for getting me one of these shipped to me so quickly!

thanks for posting the video and photo. drunk or no, that video sounded awesome.
i've got 2 SID Guts on the way from Analogue Haven, traveling just 400 miles up from L.A. to Berkeley.
Shawn said October 15th, so i'm hoping they'll arrive this weekend. i haven't been this anxious waiting for a module in a long time.

are those swinsids ever going to be back in stock?

Monobass, am I to interpret that as thonk will stock them?

6582 is just a rebranded 8580, so yeah it should work no problem.

In other news, I'm practically salivating over here. Cant wait to fire this thing up and patch some SID-accompanied modular videogames.

Perfect. I think I get reminded of that fact about once every 2 years, then forget again immediately after. I've been waiting for someone to do a SID module for a long time.. this is awesome.

Nice, just picked mine up from Control! :hail:

From my first impression of just jamming it in the shop,
wow - the filter on this thing is incredible, all modes are
really well tuned even when using the external input.
The PW is devastating - I can't wait to abuse it!

i hope there is enough room behind the sid guts panel to add a '6581/8580' toggle switch for swinsids.
(they have jumper to set which sid you want to emulate)
or you could do a little breakout for that switch, of course.

Being a long-time SID programmer i'm interested in enhancing this module. The SID character coming from many other places, and these days it can produce extremely sophisticated sounds, you would not believe (way beyond than these blip-blops). Even, there are more ways to trigger a voice and all sounds different (hard restart alone is an important sid-sensation factor). Wave-scanning-tables are also super important.

I'd like to see what logic this module uses if there was a way to add new features to it later....

But i definietly want to purchase one.

I don't see it's available in Europe! (no EU distributors list it). Can someone please give a hint?

This is the source:

Out of stock at the moment, but if you keep your eye on it, they restock fairly frequently.

If I understand correctly, this should be possible by driving the wave shape CV-input from a sequencer, assuming it's responsive enough for fast changes. The sequencer becomes the table —so something like the Modcan Touch-Sequencer would allow for very complex and long tables.

I just picked up my parcel from the post with 2x SwinSIDs.

They'll be homeless until the DIY kits come out, tho. I can't wait for the kits to hit Thonk. :hyper:
