If you like making ambient music or music silmilar to Boards of Canada, TRS-80, FREESCHA etc then SID Vicious will have lots to offer you. SID is also capable of making some very hard, aggressive sounds, hence the name VICIOUS. Some of the samples have been stretched across the entire key range to allow for all the weird and wonderful audio artifacts to come into play when samples are stretched across a wider keyrange. Comes with a selection of 125 presets. The 125 presets are varied and designed to get your musical j
