Elektron announces SidStation special edition, website

That Commodore 64 technology just won't go away...      03/07/00

"Many synthesizers built today are made to fit a current trend to a specific market. SidStation is not one of them. It is built with love and dedication, and capable of producing expressive sounds that can not be recreated with any other instrument." So says Sweden's Elektron, the guys behind this bizarre and exciting MIDI-controlled machine based on the MOS6581 ("SID") chip - the same type as used in the Commodore 64 home computer (remember that?) Now the SidStation - voted 'coolest synth of 1999' by a Swedish music tech mag - has a fully-redesigned website. Zip over to see what it look and sounds like, as well as "many other cool things" - like downloading an updated OS (now up to v1.1). There's instant online credit card verification, so they can vacuum up your cash too - you can even buy a SidStation there too... And if you're in the mood to do that, why not opt for the SidStation Ninja? "The dark avenger of the SID-family," says Elektron. "Silky black with clear blue LEDs. This martial arts master also comes with a special set of patches originating from the domains of 8-bit chaos." Wooooh! The production is limited to 50 numbered units (serial 2000 to 2049). A full presentation can be found at the SidStation website. Get 'em while they're hot! http://www.sidstation.com/
