Hi all,

We just ported our A-SID VST3 plugin to Linux.

A-SID is our personal and romantic way to celebrate the 40th anniversary 
of the debut in 1982 of the most successful computer ever, the C64.

It implements a wah effect as a C64 program and a VST3 plugin.

The C64 program uses the SID chip in the original machine. No hardware 
modification is required, but you need to build yourself one or two 
adapter cables and copy the program to a cassette.

The VST3 version emulates the original analog filter (the MOS 8580 
version) and replicates the C64 program.

Both versions are GPLv3 licensed.

Creating this software has been a fascinating journey that absorbed an 
immense quantity of energy and time, as we documented on our blog: 
https://www.orastron.com/blog/asid-trip-part-1. We would really 
appreciate if you could spread the word about A-SID and Orastron with 
friends and on social media, forums, etc. Bluntly put, we'd love to make 
innovative premium consumer products, but we first need an audience for 
that to be economically viable.

Also, if you want to keep up to date, we maintain a low-volume 
newsletter you could subscribe to: https://www.orastron.com/#newsletter.

Best regards,
