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/
