    From Robert Bernardo@21:1/5 to All on Fri Sep 17 01:05:11 2021
    No Commodore gaming because of broken SID chip? Evie Salomon, creator of the BackBit cartridge and other Commodore bits (!), has released the BackSID, a replacement for the 6581/8580 SID chip in the Commodore 64/128/64C/128DCR. BackSID auto-detects
    into which Commodore it is installed, and with an upcoming C64 configuration program, the user will be able to customize the settings and upgrade the firmware. Not only does BackSID offer good sound but also supports inputs, like mouse, paddles, and
    Koalapad. It does not offer audio pass-through. For more BackSID details, see

    The BackSID is very reasonably priced at $29 US, not including shipping.
