    I've been mostly listening to AY3-8910 music myself. There's some stonking stuff out there, which is a surprise given how poor most Atari ST software using that chip sounds. I guess running two or three channel arpeggiators and other PWM bits and pieces at the same time was largely beyond the 68k chip, and you need something with a bit more oomph to handle all of that and not drop a semi-demi-quaver.

    Oh, you mean the SID chip. I thought for a second you were referring to user @Chip.

    Do they have a hall of shame? If so, I'm a shoe-in.

    Wow. And the demo says "12" voices, but we all know that the SID has a 4th voice and maybe you can drive digital clicks too for dual Stereo samples? sweet!

    edit: watching the rest of Evoke 2019!
