Maybe from what Jbev said, the old SID with its support components also produced a little extra noise when changing volumes which was much reduced. News SIDs can do digis using D418 by tieing up (or down) a resisitor. It is a little like the little grey (or is it white?) annoying bits when you change D021, even if I continually change it to black (00). The Triad site had the mod but I don't know the url to it, maybe triad.c64.org? ----- Original Message ----- From: "Steve Judd" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Thursday, April 12, 2001 9:45 AM Subject: Re: d418 > Hola jb, > > Thanks; I already understand the process hueristically though.
