Hey guys. I need some help frm more knowledgeable people....
I am looking for a christmas present for someone who is a musician, plays multiple instruments including LSDJ, is into DIY stuff and is even getting into building his own synths now.
Since he has a C64 and an Atari that he still didn't get to use for his music (even though he wants to) I was thinking about getting him some piece of hardware/software, maybe some cart that would get him started in that department. If we would get started with a new instrument, I can imagine that he would want to connect it to his setup rather to have it as a stand alone thing.
Through my research I found the Cynthcart and the MSSIAH. Also found the Synthcart for the Atari. Are they any good or are there better tools?
Correct me if I am wrong, but from what I saw the Cynthcart and the Synthcart seem a bit limited except for live, hands on playing. The MSSIAH looked like something he could fiddle around for quite some time but some threads leave me to believe there are better ways to get music out of your C64
Is there something you can you recommend? Any fun tools around that I have overlooked? Any insight on this stuff would be awesome.
Thanks in advance
