  1. Hi all, I found an eBay seller in China selling sammichFM and sammichSID kits.  Are these legit, or should I avoid them?  It doesn't look quite right... a bit fishy. (Not linking here so I don't break any rules, but if Wilba or TK pm me, I can send links.)
  2. Selling a couple of sammichSIDs over on eBay including one Arctic White Wilba kit built by me about a month ago. They are both sold with SwinSIDs as it has become to time consuming to source original SIDs.  I am an experienced builder and have been making gear for twenty years. Both units have been tested and work great. Starting bid is $99 for each unit.   I am including the recommended Jameco power supplies in each auction.   Arctic white case (built by me):   Aluminum case (purchased from eBay seller - but tested working perfectly):      
  3.   hi guys how are you. Can somebody help me with this problem ? im using stereo because i have 2 sids. But my problem is that when i play any preset (most of them) with one speaker i hear a note always sustained forever, in the other speaker doesnt happens nothing , the note envelope is good . Here you have a video i did showing you what is happening.  My question is , it´s a SID failure ? do you know anyway to fix it or i need to replace ?  maybe i need to do a factory reset ? is possible to do a reset in the sammichSID ? how do it ?¿   thjanks very much,      in minute 12 you can here the sustained note (never finish) always sounding , not the same in the other speaker (in this speaker the preset has finished sounding)    
  4. Hi, I'm selling two midibox instruments: - sammichFM in acrylic enclosure. Works 100% (knobs, pots, display as it should). The sammich comes with no power plug, just the sammichFM as pictured. asking EUR 230,-    - MB6582 fully built in Pactec enclosure, with red display. Includes 6 x 6582 SIDs (NOS ordered back then via Wilba) and 1 x 6581 (ripped from a C64). Here comes the story:   It was working 100%. Then I had the MB6582 in storage for about 2 years. If I turn it on now, it will boot up correctly but some of the encoders/buttons will react, some won't. The situation which encoder/button works changes with each start of the box (on/off). So I'm a bit clueless what the issue here is. Maybe it is a wire problem from the Control surface to the mainboard. But I can also not hear a sound when triggering via midi. So this is probably only for someone experienced in debugging... The MB6582 will come without the Rean knobs which I have put on for the photo. I have a spare C64 power plug which I can provide. asking EUR ??? . I really do not know what I could take for this? Parts prices? I'm open for sensible offers... Please note that I want to sell the MB6582 'as-is' ie not selling the SID chips separately. Both midiboxes can be picked up in Frankfurt/Main Germany or shipped to your place (price plus shipping cost). Thanks and Regards, Frank
  5. sammich sid cv inputs

    Sorry if this has been covered before (usually the case) ;) but could anyone point me in the right direction to how to add cv inputs to my sammichSID please? Is it a case if adding one of the modules for adding cv in or out to a regular midibox sid to the sammich? Or would there be more to it?  I've seen the ninstrument guy has euroracked his with cv ins and even added extra rows of.leds to correspond with that also but on contact there wasn't enough interest to release a kit or whatever and then I asked for help/plans on how I can diy it with no joy/response :) I know it could be easier grab a cv to midi module to convert the cv to midi (which I did) but isn't the same as patching it up I feel   Thanks!
  6. Hello! I ran into peculiar problem with my good old Sammich and can´t figure out what might be the problem. Any tips are more than welcome :) I built the thing myself about 6 years ago. It has worked fine for a long time but after a small break i noticed this: Left output functions OK. RIght output is completely dead. I swapped the SID chips to see if it was the chip but the problem remained the same i.e. sound comes from left but not from right. So the SID chips seems OK. Then i swapped the M74.. IC´s below the SIDs but no change in the issue. So I tried to probe-listen directly from the SID audio out pin and the left SID sounds ok and right one gives some quiet hiss/crackle (not completely dead as in the audio output though, but also not noticeable notes). In other words both SID chips works just correctly but not when installed to the right side/right output. Been trying to search for bad soldering (well, i´m not too pro but still haven´t found any actualy mistakes or cold joints) but i´m wondering what the heck might cause this problem? I have a couple of different wallwarts with appropriate specs, and as I mentioned, this thing has worked before for some years... Thanks!! :)  
  7. Hello. i have a sammichSID and im looking for a software (specially for windows) that allows me to play sid music files / format from the internal sids of the sammichSID .  Is that possible ? 
  8. hi all , someone knows why my sammichSID dont start up / boot up when i have connected both midi cables ? (midi in and midi out connected) . When i only have connected one of them , then no problem , but if i have connected both , the sammich dont start. Thanks. In regard to check some failure, is There any way to know if midi input and output is working ? or how do a diagnostic ? thanks very much

  10. Vic Viper - Launch I posted before about my other band, Kirby's Dream Band, in which we use the MB6582 that I built. Here's Vic Viper!  Same keyboardist, using my sammichSID I put together!  Every sound on the album is Guitar, Sammich, Bass, and Drums, so you'll hear the Sammich quite well :)
  11. MIDI note out from Sequencer?

    Good (late) evening, I'd like to use my sammichSID to compliment my growing Eurorack setup and I was wondering if the MIDIBOX Sid V2 was capable of sending MIDI note data out of the MIDI Out port. The Eurorack MIDI interface I'm using (the Hex Inverter 'MIDI2CV') requires a Note-on to 'wake up' (including to begin outputting Clock) and while I seem to have the Sammich set to Clock Out, I can't seem to get the MIDI2CV to recognize any note data (thus, it will not 'wake up' and output  clock pulses). I'm wondering if it is possible for the Drum sequencers to output note data, or any of the sequencers - really. Thanks, Erik
  12. I am throwing my sammichSID up for sale.  Heres a link to a craigslist post I made about it:   I want 500USD$ for it, Free shipping.  It comes with a TRS breakout cable for stereo output and it comes with a 12V US 120v plug CCTV power supply.  Its in fully assembled and functioning condition. The encoder jumps around a bit but not an issue if you're using it in the studio. 
  13. Hi all,   Please go easy on me, I am new to MIDI and Sammich!   I have built a Sammich a few months ago now, and was having problems flashing it, Rowan kindly had a look at it and between him and TK it was fixed (bad optocoupler)   Rowan flashed the MIOS and patches for me and I replaced the opto coupler, and bought 2 new SID's as the existing ones were both slightly faulty, now its up and running and the Sammich sounds great triggering the patches from the buttons on it's front panel.   Now, here comes the problem:   I have wanted to hook it up via MIDI so I can play the patches with a keyboard, which i think should be fairly straight forward based on other MIDI devices I have used.   When I hook up the Sammich to my controller keyboard I set it to send on channel 1, I also make sure in the patch on the sammich, in the menu that it is set to also use channel 1, I play the keyboard and nothing happens, I cycle through patches and make sure they are on channel 1 also, but still nothing?   I have also hooked the sammich up to fruityloops via a Umidi USB cable (as suggested by the whitelist) and set fruity to output on channel 1, now this does strange things, sometimes the patch will trigger or play randomly or sometimes it causes the sammich to cycle through patches randomly?   I have midi out on the keyboard and or fruityloops to midi in on the sammich.   I have taken it to a friend who is a bit more knowledgeable with MIDI than me, and he has had a play and thinks there may be an issue with the sammich not properly responding to the midi information, and possibly miss translating what it is receiving.   Could this be me just not knowing enough about MIDI, or is there potentially another issue with the sammich that needs correcting, like with the faulty optocoupler?   Any help appreciated, and if someone could confirm the best way to make sure it is receiving MIDI and translating it properly that would be great.   Thanks,   Kai.
  14. Hello,   I have finished building and hardware testing a sammich, but unfortunately I seem unable to flash it with any of my MIDI interfaces.   Is there anyone in the UK that is able to help me by either lending me a known working MIDI interface, or doing the flash for me if I send them the sammich?   I am unfortunately unable to source a nuesonic cable, and all 4 interfaces i've tried won't seem to do it.   Please contact me and let me know if you can help.   Many Thanks,   Kai.
  15. hi everybody . I purchased a sammichSID 2 years ago and i realized that i only hear the output from only one speaker when i insert the jack (stereo jack) to the bottom / all the way down, however , if i put / plug the cable halfway i listen by 2 speakers (but its like a mono sound i think).  So , can somebody explain me which kind of jack cables i need ?  maybe stereo jack ?  perhaps i have an output issue ?   I have donde the same with another cable and with 2 headphones and the same problem : cable inserted / plugged to the buttom .  Thanks very much           
  16. Hello all,   I have recently completed a Sammich that has been sitting on a friends shelf for the last 4 years!   I will explain what has happened so far to try and give a clear picture.   The build went really well apart from a lifted pad which was repaired (this only affected the low power LCD backlight) and is now working.   Everything electrical checks out, all test points are clear and there are no shorts, the correct jumpers are set for the 8508 SID's, the voltage jumpers are correct also.   Basically the Sammich turns on and the LCD shows some black squares, then tells me: MIOS v1.9g ©2009 T Klose, and then goes on to say READY.   I have an M-Audio 2x2 midisport usb interface, I have downloaded the latest MIOS Studio software (PC and Mac), and the latest setup_sammich_sid.hex, and the mios_v1_9g_pic18f4685.hex   My problem is that no matter what i do, it doesn't seem to want to let me upload the hex file to the PIC/Sammich.   when I first power on the sammich, if i press query in the mios studio immediately, i get the screen telling me its connected to the core and ready, and then i browse for the setup_sammich_sid.hex and hit start, and then it tells me it can't contact the core and to reboot the sammich, which i do, it tries to do it then it says it can't it and gives me an error saying:    Upload aborted due to error #12: MIDI IN Frame ErrorNo response from core after 16 retries!   It only ever seems to give me the connected to core message immediately after I power it on, and press query, and then only very briefly, from what i understand, it is supposed to keep polling every few seconds for an upload if it doesn't have mios/hex burnt in.   I have tried doing this under windows 7 64bit, and OS X 10.10, using the same M-Audio 2x2 ( isee from the white/blacklist that this particular device may not work under OS X, hence why I'm trying under windows 7.   I have looked at the troubleshooting guide, and done the midi loopback tests from the PC and the sammich, and the check out fine.   I think i either have a duff midi interface, or something else is wrong.   I will post some screenshots incase anyone else can help by looking at them, any help is greatly appreciated.   [EDIT]   I have now tried to upload the file from another 2 different types of midi interface on the Mac, but still have the same error in mios studio.   [EDIT]   I have just purchased a Neusonik uMIDI/O22 to test with, once it arrives i will give it a go and see if it makes any difference.

  19. sammichSID for sale

    Hey all, I have one of my two sammichSIDs up for sale. It's complete and comes with an Australian plugpack. I'm downsizing my setup and getting rid of a few things that are excessive. It's got green LEDs and 2x 6582a SIDs (I think, will double check). It has only been used in my home studio and has not been gigged or around smoke etc. Am looking for $250AUD for the lot.   Get in touch here if you're interested. Will try and post a photo or two when I get home.    
  20. bonjour a tous , j'ai récupéré une sammichSID dérniérement et je viens de me rendre compte en lisant le manuel que j'ai quelques problémes. Alors dans un 1er temps dans le menu clock je n'ai que sid, bpm et mod d'affiché, il me manque out, je comprends pas pourquoi je ne l'ai pas. Ensuite l'autre probléme que j'ai remarqué est assez étrange, cela concerne toujours l'affichage mais ce coup ci c'est lorsque je suis dans la fonction sid il y a affiché 1 puis 3 étoiles aprés le 1, alors que dans le manuel on voit écrit 1 suivi de 3 petits traits et lorsque justement je veux séléctionner une des deux sid ça ne bouge pas, c'est toujours pareil 1 suivi de 3 étoiles. Je tiens à préciser aussi que lorsque j'ai récupéré la sammichSID je l'ai ouverte pour regarder dedans et j'ai bien fait car la j'ai été outré de voir une des pattes de la 2éme puces qui n'été pas rentré dans la socket, cette patte était complétement pliée!!! Du coup j'ai sortie la 6581 et éssayé de la redrésser correctement j'ai réussi, j'ai remis la 6581 dans sa socket mais toujours le même affichage au niveau de la selection de la puce sid je me demande si ma sammich ne marche pas sur une seule sid ? Je remercie d'avance toutes personnes pouvant m'aider! Merci    Coordialement damien
