For a C64 SID project of mine (https://soundcloud.com/c64er) I was using an converter almost 10 years ago, but it is missing now with its name... I researched many sites, but no lucky. Is there any SID to WAV converter that exports every channel separately?

  • What was the name of the converter?

  • I would try to locate some function calls of the lib you're missing in a source code of yours and then search the web by those function names ...

I'm not sure about built-in support for rendering per-track wave files automatically, but you could write a batch file or shell script to drive a command-line SID-to-Wave tool to play it multiple times, leaving a different channel un-muted each time.

JSIDPlay2 can be used that way.

  • ✓ Works on all major platforms
  • ✓ Supports your choice of cycle-accurate emulation or hardware SID cards
  • ✓ Can be run in a shell script or batch file via the --audio WAV, --muteVoice1, --muteVoice2, etc. options
  • ✓ According to this thread, filtering support isn't contingent on having all channels un-muted like with SidAmp.
  • ✗ Unless you have a powerful machine, you may find it takes more than 3 minutes to render a 3 minute song to Wave on the emulated SID.

Running the command-line version without arguments will tell you what options it takes.
