Since I am stuck inside; I thought I would clean up the attic and found my old C64; the keyboard was shot; few of the ram IC were gone and overall the board was rusted to the point where some traces were lifted; not worth fixing, but I collected the MOS 6581, which is known as SID chip.
Thought it was a good chance to learn something new; so I got the schematics and the data sheet for the 6581 and now I would like to make a synth out of it. Nothing fancy; I have a breadboard and all I want to do to start with, is to interface to it with the Arduino, since I do not have the skillset to make my own PIC and program it :)
Does anyone have some guidance for this project? I may find connections schematics to connect the chip, although the rest is all something I have to learn; including how to write the code to manipulate the registry on the 6501 to actually make sounds.
Any suggestion/pointer/guidance would be really appreciated. Thanks!
