welcome!You have reached the homepage of "Tiny'R'Sid".
This Commodore C64 music emulator was started in 2011 and allows to play almost any orginal C64 music file (PSID & RSID). I hope you'll have fun using it!
creditsAt the core of the emulation logic there still remain bits of "TinySid" code by T.Hinrichs and R.Sinsch (e.g. parts of wave form generation and the complete filter implementation). Many thanks also go to Wilfred Bos and to Markus Klein for their patient feedback.
technical informationThe goal was to design an emulator fast enough to be run within a Web browser on the widest possible range of devices (accepting the trade-off that there may be traditional desktop emulators which produce more perfect SID emulation results).
Compared to TinySid this emulator contains substantial enhancements: complete 6510 instruction set and timing support, handling of CIA timers and VIC (partially), interrupt and memory bank handling, etc (i.e. preconditions for RSID handling). Added support for combined waveforms, accurate SID envelope generator, digi samples (in different flavors: d418, 'pulse width modulation', Mahoney's, etc).
Eventhough this emulator is taking shortcuts (as compared to a correct cycle by cycle emulator) the player seems to cope pretty well with most real world PSID and RSID files (see links below). The implementation approach also makes it rather inexpensive in terms of CPU load: CPU load of the Flash version is about 75% less than that of a precise emulator like sidplay26. The Flash version even runs on my old 2011 HTC HD2 smartphone.
Known limitations: Emulator does not include any Commodore ROM code and music programs written in BASIC therefore are not supported. Dual or tripple SID configurations are not supported.
This site contains quite a bit of SID related functionality, e.g. browsing of HVSC, playlist management, etc. You are invited to either use it directly or to take it as an example for how to integrate the player into you own Flash or HTML projects. There is also a WordPress plugin.
enough talk.. lets hear more of itGo to top 100 or explore the complete HVSC. PS: The song that you are currently listening to is labeled somewhat incompletely: It is originally from the Amiga demo "Boulder" by Knackosoft/TRISTAR.
