SID Sounds Volume 1 for Reason


The Commodore 64 was one of the first computers I grew up using after owning a Commodore Vic20. While I love the the sounds that it makes, it’s not exactly the easiest piece of hardware to use with Reason. What I decided to do was sample the raw wave forms that it has and set them up as instruments in NN-XT. The result ended up being a Refill of 282 samples in 6 NN-XT files. There is the saw, triangle, square, saw-square, triangle-square, and noise. Also included in this refill are a selection of drum sounds and they’re all set up in a single NN-XT.

Since so many samples were recorded, there is no stretching done except near the upper and lower octaves.  I sampled four octaves worth of notes with most wave forms. The SID never really produces the same exact wave form twice and these little slices will give you that sound. If there’s enough interest in this refill, I’ll work on sampling various combined wave forms from the Commodore 64 and release them in a similar manner. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

I have started to put up some demos of the refill and you can listen to them below. The songs that will be shown here will use nothing but the sounds in the refill plus some Matrix Pattern Sequencers. I will be adding more songs as time goes on.

I’ve updated the Refill with a two more wave forms: saw-square and triangle-square. I also added a few Combinators in there to get you started. If you purchased this Refill in the past and would like the updated version, please contact me via the link at the top of this page.
