FamousWhy Editor: Before we start to talk about JSidplay2 itself, let's see several things about SID technology for a better understanding of what this software can provide.
The High Voltage SID Collection can mean two different things: the name of a project to build a collection of music created on the MOS Technology SID sound chip in Commodore CBM-II, Commodore 64 and Commodore 128 home computers (some of the first home computers ever made) and the collection itself.
The word "SID" can refer to both the chip itself and the filename extension of the music files made for it.
At the time when Commodore 64 was released in 1982, the SID chip offered some advanced sound capabilities far more powerful than those of other home computers or video game systems available until then. The music composed on it soon proved to be extremely popular among users, especially in Europe.
By definition, JSidplay2 is a free and open source music player built to play SID files of the Commodore 64 by emulation. As SID files are not that popular anymore, JSidplay2 comes with a handy feature that allows you to directly connect to High Voltage SID Collection, the biggest SID music collection available at this moment. From there, you can download (for free) thousands and thousands of SID music files and play them using your JSidplay2.
JSidplay2 incorporates a few useful features and tools. Let's take a short look over some of the key features available:
- Load sound files with extensions: SID (PSID/RSID), MUS, P00, DAT, STR and PRG. The user can find most of them in the High Voltage SID Collection, the biggest music collection on earth.
- JSidplay2 can play with custom sample rates and sample size (8/16 bit)
- JSidplay2 can check song length from Song Length database (SLDb - contained in HVSC)
- It can be controlled using a keyboard
- It can play mono and stereo formats
- It can load external SID Filter definition
- JSidplay2 is easily configurable by an INI file containing emulation and player settings
- JSidplay2 can be integrated into Java enabled platforms
