Revision 25 of the SID plugin is available at the usual place.

Here's what's new in this version:
  • reSID sampling methods (interpolation, resampling) introduced
  • reSID external lowpass filter added
  • oversampling introduced
  • seeking glitches fixed
  • individual voice volume control added
  • SLDB issues (crashing) solved
  • new, cool configuration
  • fade-out issues corrected
  • nicer ini settings
  • another info window adjustments
  • seeking made always warp
  • statically linked runtime (no additional dll's needed anymore)

As stated above, you don't need those stinky VC runtime DLL's anymore. Static linking increased plugin's size by about 90 KB, but I suppose this sacrifice will end problems with running the plugin once and for all.

Second thing: INI entries were changed to more human readable strings. Old settings should transfer flawlessy, but you will probably need to reconfigure the plugin nevertheless, as some options are missing in the old "set".

Fraggie fraggled his own link. ;D  Should be: http://dhost.info/pieknyman/

Revision 25 of the SID plugin is available...
Don't know where to start. This is total uber-leetnes.

Thank you, Fraggie. :-*
(oh, and before you ask: no, i'm straight) ;D

Btw, you can improve compression of your plugin using UPX v2.90 which introduces LZMA compression (7-Zip).
Commandline: upx.exe --lzma <input-file>
Download: http://upx.sourceforge.net/download/unstable/upx290w.zip

Thanks for the tip. A 15 KB lighter plugin is up. :)

You just made me feel life is great: I'm totally ok with:

"you don't need those stinky VC runtime DLL's anymore. Static linking increased plugin's size by about 90 KB, but I suppose this sacrifice will end problems with running the plugin once and for all" ::)

Thanks for this awesome plugin, now coming with a "redesigned" properties window: I like this one more than the old one, it seems more rational to me.  :)

I have been using 24d so happily I didn't notice that 25 is already out. :D

All those pesky STIL troubles I had are now completely gone! I tested all the troublesome SIDs and every one of them is playing fine. No more Delta.sid crashes.

Excellent work!!!

The plugin has been updated. Original rev.25 could crash on XMPlay close.

I love this last version, so many features!
Unfortunately, I got several bugs :(

To tell you a couple of: with SIDplay emulation genre and 8x resample, moving forth/back the timebar causes a complete upsetting of the track; in the end of any .sid the XMplay crashes; I can't get rid of a continuous looping :(

I can't make it crash on my computer. Please PM (or e-mail) me your xmplay.ini file, so I can have a look at the settings you use.

Ok. Nevermind that. I think I've found the problem. A new revision 25a is up (mainly fixing filter passbands and seeking when oversampling is enabled).

Changes since rev.25:
- possible crash on exit fixed
- seeking and filters fixed when using oversampling
- small memory leak (on plugin reconfiguring) fixed

Shoot. Another update is available. V.25a broke automatic passband frequency calculation for external filter, which is now fixed.

Your plugin doesn't like NTSC SID's with anything other than "Nearest Sample (like sidplay2)." It plays them at the right speed, but they play out of tune, like a PAL SID, just faster. Explanations are welcome.

Thanks for spotting this.

ok, post, take 2. Hi, once again, nice work on the plugin, keep it up. I've actually completly deleted sidplay2w from my system! However, I've found a bug with the way it handles stereo sidplayer files, from the cgsc collection. The problem is that if you use pan seporation it courses the volumes of some of the voices to be reduced, in relation to how high the slider is. The higher the value, the more noticeable this problem is. It's been around since about rev 24 C, if I remember right. If you have the cgsc, you can here the effect by playing, for example, axel_f.mus, if not I can post or send the files.

thanks again,
arfyy

v0.25a has a bug. In the "Fading" config section, it doesn't appear to remember the settings for "Enable fade-out". If you uncheck this, apply the settings, then quit out of XMPlay completely, when you come back in and look, that setting is switched on again.

Also, I have the entire 33,000 HVCS loaded in the library and just play songs (without fade) randomly from it while working. XMPlay crashes out completely after maybe four or five SID songs. It's pretty consistent and I'm not really sure why it's happening. Any way I can look at debug loggins or something to try and work out why?

Are you sure it's the SID plugin that's crashing? Please remove all other plugins and check if it still goes down.
