The Mono SID emulation is plenty tweakable imo - in fact, the Monomachine allows you to take the SID sound places it could never go in its native environment. I used quite a bit of tweaked out sid on this track, which took under an hour from scratch: http://www.allerian.com/music/Coexist.mp3 only M...
