Because a SIDStation is much too expensive for me... Does anybody know of a good SID-emulation-soft-synth?

Thanks a lot.

PS: Linux, of course...

It would be very useful if you post the error message...

OK, I'm encountering several errors here, too. Currently trying to fix it. Will post my changes later...

OK, my changes that makes it build (all in the src directory):

Added #include to sid_chips.cc header.

Changes to Makefile (also in src):

Replaced
CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/include/resid
with
CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/include/resid
because I compiled resid from source

Changed
LDFLAGS = \
$(shell pkg-config jack --libs) \
$(shell pkg-config glib-2.0 --libs) \
-lstdc++
to
LDLIBS = \
$(shell pkg-config jack --libs) \
$(shell pkg-config glib-2.0 --libs) \
-lresid -lstdc++ -lm

Deleted the line
LIBS=-lresid

Now it compiles and linkes at least. Haven't tried to run it, yet...

I think all other conditional links should also be done via LDLIBS and not via LDFLAGS, but now it compiles and I am lazy. :)

The include should of course be
#inlcude <cstdio>
It was misinterpreted as a HTML-tag.
And the Makefile lines followed by \ should be indented by a tab...

Doesn't work here. Crashes immediately after starting.

If I understood it right, there arent't any LFOs or modulations possible with this synth, so it is of limited use for me even if it would work...

Someone on IRC (#opensourcemusicians) installed it successfully and said they were enjoying it. I haven't tried it myself. You can technically write a preset script that would automate parameters, but I doubt thats what you're really looking for.
