About This Listing

The SidStation is pretty special: it takes the chip used for legendary C64 games like Elite, Paradroid and Boulder Dash and wraps enough pro audio I/O around it to make a studio-ready module that you can drive via MIDI. It’ll do everything from icy PWM leads to gnarly 8-bit pads to bleepy chiptunes, and it sounds like *nothing* else out there. If you’re looking for a unique sound that’ll cut through any mix, this is it.

This one’s in perfect nick, apart from a small scratch on the left that’s just about visible in the photos. I’m the second owner, and in the 12 years I’ve had it, it’s been carefully looked after in a smoke-free studio. I’m selling reluctantly, and only because I’m rationalising my gear for 2 live setups, and the SidStation’s too temperamental for live use!

It comes with a slightly battered copy of the original manual and an aftermarket power supply that’ll put out exactly the right current. However, I’d highly advise also using it with a power conditioner if you’re running it from a domestic wall socket - SidStations do not like wavering voltages or power surges!

Please contact me if you have questions or want a shipping quote to your location - I’ll aim to answer all questions within 24 hours!
