The Christmas SID is based on the the STM32-SID-PLAYER by Bakisha on GitHub. This is a really cool little project designed to play SID files back on the Blue Pill STM32 ARM development board. When I first became aware of this project, I really wanted to use in something, but I wasn’t really sure what. Way too late in October, I finally decided it would be a neat Christmas Ornament! I made the board and ran it naively hoping it would just work the first time. Well, it did work, sort-of. But, not well enough for production. So I quickly made some changes and ran another board. So there is still a chance we could get them out towards the middle of the month. That means I couldn’t resist making a quick video however, so please enjoy!
If we do happen to get the PCBs in soon, and they work, I will make an update post asap to get them out for sale!
