Hi there...

Looking for updated xmp-sid plugin... or some alternative plugin that would use up to date libsidplayfp 2.2.0 (or at least 2.1.1).
With current plugin 37.1 (uses libsidplayfp 1.8.1) there is bit of sound crackle with certain tunes..

Which brings other question.. what happened with Fraggie?? He did not login here since 2019 and his website with plugins seem down...
are the sources of his plugins available anywhere so that they could be used to produce updated version??

Regards
Sebby75

Well..

I have switched in the end to use this input plugin https://csdb.dk/release/?id=181245 which even thought it's 2 years old it seems to be using more up to date libsidplay2 library.
All .sid files that did not play correctly or had any crackling noise in them are now plying just fine...

Thanks for posting about this alternative SID plugin. I too have been waiting for updates on Fraggie's plugin but it seems like development is dead on it.

Switching to using the plugin you recommend. I actually mostly use either jSidDevice with Acid64 player, or else foo_sid in foobar (by kode54), both of which have the most recent libsidplayfp code. I miss using XMplay for SID files, but that's the most common exotic filetype I play.

Well... must have been listening to SIDs without subsongs for the last month or so...  I have only just noticed today I cannot switch between subsongs with plugin that I have linked above... so I'm back to native plugin by Fraggie for now...

If anyone can figure out how to build libsidplayfp as a library or add it to visual studio (2010/2019/etc) properly I can probably make a new plugin. Spent many hours on trying to build libsidplayfp myself with nothing significant to show, just not something I understand well enough I suppose. ???

I'm sure it is far easier than I think it is and I'm doing something silly but I don't know what that is,  :P

I'll bet if you opened a discussion on the github (https://github.com/libsidplayfp/libsidplayfp/discussions) one of the devs would help you out. Kode54 is a real nice/responsive guy, when I pinged him on Twitter asking him to update his foo_sid plugin with the latest libsidplayfp code he had it done and released within 4 hours.

This thread has been split so that the new plugin has its own thread, which is here:
