       sidplay      — Music player and C64 SID chip emulator


       sidplay       options        datafile  |-


       Sidplayer is a music player program that emulates the the Sound Interface Device chip (MOS
       6581, commonly called SID) and the Micro Processor Unit (MOS 6510), allowing you  to  play
       music files written for Commodore 64 on a modern computer.

       All you need is audio hardware with average PCM waveform playback capabilities. A fast CPU
       and a 16-bit sound card are recommended for better performance and slightly  better  audio
