SIDBlaster/USB Luxury

The SIDBlaster/USB productified!

Everything assembled and ready-to-go in a sleek pocket-sized aluminum case with power and data indicator LED’s.

SID chip is not included as these chips can not be safely sourced.

You will need to find and install a SID chip before you can use your SIDBlaster/USB.

Expect lead time (time before shipping) of roughly 2-3 weeks due to significant hand-crafting required to produce these units.

Additional DescriptionMore information

You will need to specify what type of output jack you want us to add as well as exactly what type of SID chip you intend to use as different chips use different voltages!

SIDBlaster/USB Assembly

This is a service to be ordered together with the SIDBlaster/USB Kit only and cannot be ordered on it’s own or with the PCB option.

We will assemble, program and test your SIDBlaster/USB prior to shipping.

Additional DescriptionMore information

You need to specify what type of output jack you wish us to connect for you and the desired length of wires between board and jack. Jack options are single RCA, stereo or mono 3.5mm or 1/4″ phone-jack. Example: -”I’d like a MONO 1/4″ JACK with a 4CM WIRING kthxbye”. If you want your own custom high-quality, special brand or fancyodd output you can also tell us not to add an output jack :) Also specify what type of SID chip you intend to use with the device as different chips require different voltages.

SIDBlaster/USB Case

A simple wooden case for your SIDBlaster/USB, crafted from 2mm aircraft plywood or 3mm birch plywood depending on what we have at hand.

Assembly required – you’ll need glue! To prevent cracking when bending the wall strip to fit the bottom and lid – wet the wall strip with hot tap water first!

SIDBlaster/USB PCB ONLY

Includes only the PCB with the surface mount USB-chip attached.

You will have to source all other components, program both the USB chip and CPU and assemble the device on your own.

If you do not own a PIC programmer, you can purchase a preprogrammed CPU below.

The USB chip can be programmed using the FT-Prog utility available from FTDI.

Component sourcing and assembly information.

Please note: One of our dear customers pointed out an error in values of the filter caps (C1 and C2). Here are his findings:

I’ve assembled three SIDblasters with 6581R4, 6581R4AR & 8580R5. But there’s some mistake in your specification. Capacitors 2,2nF are for 6581R4 (and maybe R2 & R3, not tested). 6581R4AR REQUIRES capacitors 470pF (otherwise filters are too deep), 8580R5 REQURES 22nF (otherwise you get whistling sounds instead filtered instruments). All is tested and works great with mentioned capacitors.
