Mode Machines SiD Chiptune Groovebox Synth + additional C64 SiD 8850 r5 chip


via this auction

"In good working order with minor issue.

A brilliant synth module with swinsid sound chip fitted. I’ll throw in a sid 8580 r5 chip (untested but was purchased by myself in good faith as working), instructions on swapping the chip are on the Mode Machines site. Swinsid chips are highly regarded and were originally fitted to these for a) better availability b) slightly reduced background noise.

It has a synth track and a drum track which can run simultaneously or you can connect an external sequencer or midi keyboard to get 3 note polyphony from the synth engine.

The issue; step sequencer led 1 does not work (this could be as straight forward as replacing the led), this does not affect the operation of the synth.

This groovebox has been factory hand built and does have the feel of a x0xb0x and not your top of the line Moog, but again, it functions as intended."
