Hello there
Here i come with a recently baked chiptune, trying to imitate the MOS6581 SID (commodore 64)

I like the ... 5/4 (?) signature you've used. I usually don't divide my 5/4 beats like you do. It's wonderful in how many ways you can divide that signature.
The sudden changes were welcome too! Makes it really sound like something is going wrong.

I wonder if this is actually possible on a real SID-chip, it has quite a lot of depth in terms of stuff going on at the same time. But if you tried to imitate the SID-chip, I assume you know about it's limitations. So if you did keep the limitations in mind, it's pretty mind-blowing what you did. Creating a whole world of sound with just those 3 tracks.

I'll have to show this to Jeroen Tel sometime.

Good job!

Thank you for listening my track.
I love using non-4/4 time signatures (like 3/4, or in this case 5/4)
Things like 3 channel polyphony, only pulse, saw, triangle and noise, Ring mod, cutoff, resonance (and the possibility to change "instrument" during playback) makes the SID something more capable than a 2A03, even using the same tricks like the "Follin brothers 1 channel echo"
The song was made in FL Studio, and I tried to have all the limitations in mind, so... if someone try to make a C64 play this, i will be possible (in some way).

There is a video in my youtube channel showing what is going with the three channel in the whole song, if you're interesed.
