This post is to underline the existence of Synth Magic's Kontakt 5 powered instrument "Sid Vicious". For an instrument created from a Commodore 64, C64 synthesizers and a personally designed C64 synth by the developer, I expected mostly grit and chip tunes, arcade stuff, but from the first patch, I was caught by surprise with awesome, inspirational sounds that make this reasonably sized library under 400 mb, a real treasure, suited for many genres.

The simple one panel interface offers enough possibilities with the usual basic settings to generously transform or adjust the sound. There is also a useful drop down waveform menu to further explore sonorities. The gui design is perfect.

Now I know why Sid Vicious used a C64 sound sampler! If you are familiar with the developers at Synth Magic and their products, this Kontakt 5 library "Sid Vicious" is in line with the quality of their other synthesizer exploration instruments. For all these reasons I give it a solid 10 on 10. Here included is a link to the page at Synth Magic featuring "Sid Vicious":

Yeah it sounds great!

Check out this collaboration between myself and Rhythmic Robot for some more Commodore 64 sounds:

It's free and it also features some classic subtractive synthesis sounds, along with the chiptune stuff.

Check out the racist guy jumping out the window! He looks like he is going to blow a gasket.

What a rotter!

I think they bit off a little more than they could chew.
